I ask a question to Hemp,where did people get the 'great message of the bible' before the bible was written ?
This message is not limited to,neither begin with the bible.Therefore there is obviously other places and people to obtain it.The bible is a construct which attempts to mimic African wisdom and teaching,Europeans ventured into Africa and adapted the things they learnt to suit them and wrote the bible.The foundation of the bible was not contained within any book but within the minds of the ancients,then onto walls,then scrolls,then books.but it starts as logic. The bible is not the source,so InI must acknowledge the source especially when we can still access it by looking within ourself
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not
Verse1 - in the beginning was the word(the word is the teaching/message,words have to come out someone's mouth right,so let's assume the word started within man and woman),the word was with god(the teaching was with god who dwells within man and woman),and the word was god(the teaching was what dwelled inside of the men and women,you may say but god is not the teaching,but look at it like this god is supposed to be a guiding/fathering figure and/or influence or inspiration)
Verse2 -the same was in the beginning with god(reiterates everything in verse 1)
Verse3- all things were made by him,and without him was not anything made that was made( all things were created by man and woman in correspondance to the teaching/moral overstanding,also god manifests in nature so nature also created everything)
Verse4-in him was life(in this teaching/overstanding was life,the ancients overstood the message and the teaching so were able to live life as it should be lived with equality and justice for all and making progress in harmony with each other,nature,and the god that dwelled within them) and the life was the light of men( the perfect living situation was something everyone gloried in,the teaching allowed them to see,have overstanding )
Verse 5- and the light shineth in darkness( the teaching was shown to people who didn't have the overstanding and who were not living a perfect life as the ones who didn't have overstanding,in other words darkness refers to the people who could not see the glorious livity,the darkness is a livity which is not perfect and perhaps quite sinful,so probably the kind of livity many people of the world are living in today) and the darkness comprehended it not (the misoverstanding people did not overstand the teaching/message and dismissed it because they could get to grips that god is in man and in woman and that all ones have to do is find that internal god and tap into that source for guidance and finding ourself in this time)
So my lord I see that Jah reigneth in the irits of man and woman and not in a book,the book can put you in yourself if you know how to interpret it to do so,it is vital to listen to the inner I,someRasta rely solely on that tomguide them along this Rastafari trod.still as I said that is personal opinion,you can sight it however you want,I will not fight you for for it because you are free.more love and respect,give thanks.
