[[[ Seems like you are the one doing all the judging. Why do christians eat pork? Y'shua didnt eat pork. Why are some Christians homosexuals? Y'shua was not a homosexual. Why dont most Christians acknowledge the Senbet (Sabbath)? Y'shua acknowledged the Sabbath. Why arent most Christians celibate or virgins? Most of them seem to believe that Y'shua was a virgin. These questions can go on and on but I wont continue because I think it is pointless. ]]]
Jesus (chosen and elect) deciples set up Christianity, based on what they said was His message to them when he was alive and this message was consistant with his life and after life. today many people have taken Christiany and used it for their own personal gain and doctrines but that STILL does not affect how it started and that it ROOT sprang from the Words and Lifestyle of Jesus Christ. rastas can not make that claim for Haile Selassie, their lifestyles and beliefs are very different.
No body came out of Haile Selassie I camp to set up Rastafari, the only people who came out of Haile Selassie I camp was to tell the rastafarians that they were not to worship Haile Selassie, and that he is not the Almight God. this is a contant theme with His Church and those Close to HIM.
[[[ You continue to say that Haile Selassie did not acknowledge the Rastafarians. Well show me where Y'shua acknowledged the Christians and gave his support for what they were doing? ]]]
Matthew 16:24 - Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Mark 2:14 - And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.
Mark 8:34 - And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
[[[ You cant because most of the Christians today are Paulites and not Christ-ians. ]]]
Do you know what Haile Selassie though of Paul, and the New Testament ? of which you blaspheme, yet you say that he is your god but you do not follow his teachings
