Seen. Thanks for the enlightenment. I'm glad you touched on the Marley aspect, as that was one of my next questions regarding the TTOI- it seems as if not all of the members hold the same views as yourself or Dr. Carrington. I only really asked the initial question of why you call yourselves Rastafarians because, personally, I'd kind of prefer that you didn't and gave yourself the distinction of being Christians who follow the example of HIM. As one who shall fight to the death in the name of Selassie I's divinity, I have adopted the "label" (though I hate using that term) of being a Rastafarian, as he is the Son of God and I shall fall to my knees and kiss his feet when on the blessed day that I see him upon the throne of New Jerusalem, alongside Hashem. All these different views amongst those called "Rastafarian" make the followers of Ras Tafari look confused, as most of the massive don't even realize that "Ras Tafari" is a man. To them "Rasta" is a term for a black man with locks and an ever-present spliff. When I attempt to enlighten a man on InI's recognization of Selassie I's divinity, I get confronted with "No! Rasta's don't think he's God", as it seems that the TTOI have an easy time spreading their views where I live, and most every TTOI "member" does not attribute divinity (in the God-head sense) to HIM. But then again, who am I to tell you what to call yourself? Time will tell.....
Thanks for the reasoning.
Give thanks to Hashem and His Son, Jesus of Nazareth I Selassie I JAH Ras Tafari
