In Response To: Question (selassielive)
I know this question has been posted before. I have posted it before myself. I ask because some people seem to believe that Rasta livity is a product of the bible when in actuality, the bible is a product of Rasta livity. Ones say "Rasta from creation," yet limit Rastafari to a 1930 inception.
Ones also want to limit Rasta livity to Haile Selassie I. The wisemind of His Majesty was here from Iration. Many different stuctures with many different names have trodded in wisemind and righteousness throughout time. These people were doing Rasta work and Rasta livity. Rasta livity has been ingrained in our hearts from Iration. It has been revealed to InI by Qedamawi Haile Selassie in this time.
A book can not make a man know God. It can only tell him how another man sees God. InI have to find the god within. Who feels it truly knows it.
Give thanks Ras Heru, Ayinde, Diyouth, Iyah and Ras Marcus for the responses.
