No Sistren, it is I who say such a thing.
So I disagree with many Christians about His Majesty.
When I say "Ikon of Christ", many Christians would see that as unbiblical. I doubt if that is so, but many Christians are stucked in their own American inspired culture and do not have an open eye for the rest of the Christian World.
Many use slogans and I don't want to be a part of that. Many Christians bring Selassie down but I don't want to be a part of that.
He was not "just a man". He was a KING of Kings, of solomonic bloodline, annointed by the Spirit of Jah to be King.
Yes he was an Ikon of Christ in His Kingly Character.
Like his fore father King David.
How does this add to the Bible, it is just an interpretration of the Scriptures.
Haile Selassie is a type of Christ. He is not Christ, but he is a symbolical referance to Christ. When you look tro Selassie you can learn about theology. I have some Itations on my website about that.
