Worship of HIM is worship of Hashem. All prayer is directed towards to Father. I "worship" Selassie I in the sense that he is the Word, the human extension of Hashem. Did the disciples pray to Jesus when Jesus was in their midst? Did Jesus not pray to Hashem? Every question you pose can also be directed towards Jesus. Yet still you believe in Jesus, and still I believe that Jesus is Selassie I. Jesus returned "like a theif in the night". If were to have said, "Yes, you are right, I am the returned Jesus Christ", I would not have believed HIM. It was not yet time for Selassie I to bring things to an end, so He carried out things in such a manner as to only alert those actively seeking HIM. While you wait for your sky god to deliver you, I see the prophecies revealed in His Imperial Majesty. If your God does not need the blessings of men, then I guess your Jesus was proved a fake when John the Baptist baptized HIM. My Jesus, on the other hand, needs no explaining for his actions, as it was written that he would come and his actions fulfilled what was written. Now I pose you a question, Mr. Nicholas. If you are the self-respecting, religiously-tolerant man that you claim, then why are you on a "RASTA MESSAGE BOARD" imposing your views? You claim that you have heard my tirade before....no doubt you have- from the mouths of others like me who will continue to BURN FIRE on your desire to convert InI.
Give thanks. SELASSIE I IS ALIVE.
Oh yeah, my reference to designer dreads was not towards every 12 Tribesman. If I meant that, I would have said that.
