Don't reason with I in this in terms of absolutes.
I had the decency to formulate I advice to this black bredda in terms of "I BELIEVE" and how things run "To I"
Your belief is your belief.
No external locus of control. JAH works, through I works, and not from the sky. JAH hands is literally I two hands. God is man. And Haile Selassie a InI where I come from
You remind I of the slave who sat down and didn't run with Nat Turner. Didn't fight with Boukman. Didn't kill with Louverture .. but did siddung in the plantation a pray, and wait for external God to free you from slavery. Nuttn never run so in I people history.
As a matter of fact....chut blowow:
"What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead."
