your last comment made more sense than this whole conversation. I am actually nauseous after reading this whole topic (which I had not looked at in a while) --Why do all these Rasta people "say" they respect eachother, but address eachother with sarcasm and disrespect... I and I am not perfect, and after seeing this, I see how bad some of the things I had said to TEF before were. I am sorry now for letting words offend me..... but TEF dis'd Nyahbinghi and His Majesty...
In this case, I can't see what happened. The Rock posted a blessed messaage... Then there is an arguement. Most likely, one of the I them misunderstood another.
One thing I noticed was.. as said by Elijah:
"From this I interpret that you mean that, We commit criminal acts till the government of RastafarI has emerged and then we will not be a criminal no longer."
I'm not sure what the I's point was -if he agrees with this or not.. but I think this is very true. We are criminals. Each Rastafarian is a criminal, and belongs in prison.
But, really, you have to know, these are not my thoughts, they are Babylon's. --In Babylon's eyes, we are all terrible, dangerous criminals who stand in thier way.
In reality, we follow Jah's Laws. Babylon's Laws go against Jah's Laws, so to Babylon, we are criminals. Get me? If I smoke a spliff outside, walking down a city street, I could (and likely would) be arrested. -Or if I just try to live on the land, I could be arrested for "tresspassing" and that's if I don't wander across a border with another country.
Soon, as the mark of the beast is implemented, we will become worse than criminals... we will be seen as dangerous rebels, who should be killed on sight. Our peaceful resistance days will gone, and will have to fight. --Don't forget, His majesty tried using peace when He was invaded. It didn't work, so His Majesty fought. Rome came with tanks and bombs, and Ethiopia only had light armament. His Majesty even joined the troops on the front line.
I and I am peaceful, willing to love and even hug anyone -even who has proven to be my enemy. But, through this peace, I am a warrior. I am a soldier of the Most High, waiting to follow my orders, be them to stand and take a beating peacefully, or to fight hard, and not get hit once.
There is a time for peace, and it is wonderful to make more of that time, and live in peace....... but the time also comes when we have to fight.
Idren... let whatever it was go.... fighting might be necessary on occasion, but never amidst I and I.
Blessed Love, and Respect
