As Cheik Anta Diop said in Civilization or Barbarism " Christ is a title for someone who watches over the mysteries".

“We were Christian for over a thousand years before Christ,” Abba Gebremedhin [formerly known as Abba Paulos], the Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, declared. Ethiopian monotheism harks back much further in time.

And again, we see the ancient linguistic and philosophical connection between Kush (mother) and Kemet (her eldest daughter)

Tewahedo is a Ge'ez word meaning "being made one" or "unified"..

Kemetic Tawi or Taui = the union of the two lands of Egypt, or "Union of the lower self with the Higher Self"

 Tahwid in Arabic = is the indivisible oneness concept of monotheism in Islam

"From the ancient days to now, the Sun and Constellations have been deeply rooted in the traditions of the Throne of David, demonstrated in both the Ible and culture of Ethiopia and its Tewahedo Orthodox Church. Studying such esoteric or hidden messages in the Ible and Orthodox Christianity helps us as Rastafari: To overstand our JAH Emperor Haile Sellassie I as both the Zodiacal and Biblical Messianic King David-Judah: as above so below …To know HIM as King of the Nile Valley … To know HIM in His Supreme fullness, as an anointed Man of Might and Burning Flame, Light of this World, Lion Sun-King, Star of Afraka."

" Its good to seperate the religion of Ethiopia from what WE know today as Christianity"

I was meditating today about this and was on this same point. JAH knows metal, iron, steel, brass and such is not evil or wrong oppressing in itself but when its in hand of oppressor they use it to make guns swords shields and chains and shackles. So it is with Bible. Still in that metal(words, scripture) the Key that unlocks the chains lock and the axe that breaks the chains can be found to be that same metal.

We see things and translate them into words of language we know. Its difficult for many to think in a language they don't know, or let alone think beyond language and jus in spirit seeing things as they are and not defining them and perceiving things in human languages.

We must learn to see with the eyes of JAH . To think with the minds of JAH, To hear with the ears of JAH. And to live with the HEART BEAT of JAH. And there permanently be establissed.

So this is the leap from seeing things beyond ones own way of translating life thru human language and religion, terms and concepts and seeing reality as it is without translation. So we must move from all religions to where they are all pointing. Move beyond the spiritual realm the unified field of one, where nothing separated and everything unites and we realize that religions and languages and all help us find reality and describe it but are not reality its self.

“We were Christian for over a thousand years before (Yeshua)Christ,” Abba Gebremedhin "
I Give thanks for this previous post RastaGoddess. Rastafari is The Root of David . Quadmawe, the First of Creation. Perfect in all Goodness. And still Perfect Holy and Blessed.

All i can say is that i do not reject the Bible completely although i know it is flawed and like said previously might not be bad of itself but it was used for oppression. I read it occasionally, but almost completely agree with the views of most here, especially Jessep and RG and GA. Selassie I, Jah Rastafari is beyond the Bible without a doubt, before, during and after the Bible and transcends all things and draws its root from the first spiritual/metaphysical/natural/ concepts from Africa and from the start of Iration.

"Glory be to Jah, one creator"
