In post #11 on this thread, I used 'Black' and 'White' as a figure of speech.. Saying that this issue is Black and White[i.e. very simple].. The first post on this thread explains IandI view of 'Black' and 'White' as terms of describing race.. -- H.I.M Qedamawi Haile Selassie: "I must say that Black and White, as forms of speech, and as a means of judging Mankind, should be eliminated from Human society. Human beings are precisely the same whatever colour, race, creed or national origin they may be." 1 Samuel 16:7 -- But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
Also, GARVEYS AFRICA does say to burn the Bible, the same as many other people on this forum do.. This directly goes against the teachings of H.I.M.. If a one feels that the Bible is not sufficient in information and wants to supplement Biblical knowledge and description with further ROOT examination, I have no problem with this. I encourage working to validate the message, but to 'Burn the Bible'[to I] means to completely disregard and reject the message, which is NOT AT ALL what H.I.M teach.. So IandI purpose here is to iterate and reiterate these seemingly ignored teachings.. To defend the Faith..
H.I.M Qedamawi Haile Selassie: "Today man sees all his hopes and aspirations crumbling before him. He is perplexed and knows not whither he is drifting. But he must realise that the Bible is his refuge, and the rallying point for all humanity. In it man will find the solution of his present difficulties and guidance for his future action, and unless he accepts with clear conscience the Bible and its great Message, he cannot hope for salvation. For my part I glory in the Bible."
If any of the I's use the Holy Bible as a foundation of Faith and evidence of Iyesus Kristos in H.I.M. Kingly Character and want to further study and grow with this eternal document; I send invitations to join www.rastafarigroundation.com -- Give Us The Teachings of His Majesty!
