Don't misunderstand I, I have no problem with it when you avoid the word God.
You know, it is about how people know the word and how they use it. Sure there are people who only know the word from downpressors and so on who used the word with wicked intention.
But when I found to RastafarI, Selassie I taught me about God. No matter if only in the english translation(there are also english originals) or not... for me the Word is not negative.
But I also heard Selassie I saying "Jesus" in english, but I avoid that word... because for I the word "Jesus" stands for catolicism, colonialism etc... for so much wickedness... and for a false religion.
So it is a personal decision...
But what I do not overstand are this word-games... when a Reasoning gets off-topic just because one used a word like Religion or believe etc just because others see it as re-LIE-gion or be-LIE-ve. Not everybody who use the word belive means doubt.
