Africans were known to the writers of the Bible. And when they
spoke of the Ethiopians, they meant the ancestors of the black-skinned
and woolly hair people who, for two hundred and fifty years have been
known as laborers on the plantation of the south. It is to these people
and to their country, that the Psalmist refer, when he says, "Ethiopia
shall soon stretch forth her hands unto God.
No cross, No shadow of the gallows, No persecution can intimidate
and curb the spirit that leads the movement that seeks to liberate
Haile Selassie I says :
Today man sees all his hopes and aspirations crumbling before him. He is perplexed and knows not whither he is drifting. But he must realise that the Bible is his refuge, and the rallying point for all humanity. In it man will find the solution of his present difficulties and guidance for his future action, and unless he accepts with clear conscience the Bible and its great Message, he cannot hope for salvation. For my part I glory in the Bible.
