Yes true words that!
Of course, what you say is true, but let me show you how I think about that.
Man can never be perfect, ONLY Jah is perfect. Yes he created us in his image, but that does not mean that we are perfect.
We should humble ourself and should learn from JAH, instead of thinking, "oh I am already perfect as god, what should I learn since I am already perfect?"
Like you said, the free will. The free will bring the sin. We are not GODs "puppets on a string", no, he gave us the will to decide, good or bad.
And NO human beeing is perfect, I think.
But forget perfection... Babylon tell about perfection, and them people try and try to be perfect. The keyword is "R"ighteousness!
That is what a man must try to be, righteous!
Yes maybe you think you are already perfect, yes maybe you are right.
But I am too humble to think, I am perfect as Jah is perfect.
No, to me that sounds like this New Age "Everybody can be God".
Would we be perfect our faith would be so strong that we could tell a hill to move, seen?
So we have to seek for Righteousness in us, not for perfection.
Ah yes the bible...
I do not read the KJV, because I only heard negative about it.
I read a german one, shure it is not the pure word, and man shouldnīt take it literal. Like I said, you have to find the spirit of the bible in itīs words, donīt follow every word on this sheets, but find out, what are this words all together. And find the divine spirit, the TRUTH, for yourselve in the bible. And this one should follow.
Read your KJV, because you know it is a changed one, so you know one shouldnīt take it literal.
But no matter in what language... Like his Majesty teach.
It is always the same message, same spirit, same TRUTH! ONE TRUTH
I think one is not able to overstand the bible, or to find the truth in it, without studying the Kebra Nagast and His Majesty words.
And of course I n I Rastafari Elders teachings help the overstanding a lot!
I am just a youth on the beginning of my way.
The "truth" that I find in all this together, in RastafarI, changes from time to time. Because one single sentence of His Majesty could change everything.
Yes I know the Ethiopian Bible, many books in it which are not in mine. I bredren is member of the EOC, so he told me.
And when I read the bible, how could I deny the law?
Of course we donīt know if every word is true or right interpreted, but we can find the whole message that the law is, Righteousness!
When all the world people would follow Zion there would be a world full of Righteousness.
As you said, Yeshuah is the second Zion.
No I say, he is the same Zion! He came with the same message on this earth like Zion! Jah word in stone and in flesh, but the same word!
He never came to take the law away, but to fulfill the law, to show I n I how to follow the law in Righteousness, how to understand it right. Not Pharasene Biz! Pure Righteousness! Following the law only to keep the community and to live Righteous for Jah, follow the law humble! HUMBLENESS and RIGHTEOUSNESS is the salvation Yeshuah teach!
His teachings are the saving! Following his teachings with true heart makes one righteous, this is the only way through this Armagiddeon. This is the only salvation. Righteous through this Endtime, only the righteous shall survive, no weak heart shall enter ZION gates!
Blessed love to all the Is, and I give thanks for this reasoning.
Please nobody feel offended, I just want to show the Is my thoughts.
Keep up this reasoning!
Thank you for sharing wisdom with I!
