I will paste a few of your words here:
"WHY ARE YOU MAKING THE MAN WHO GOT CROWNED THE POWER OF THE TRINITY LOOK LIKE HE AND RAS TAFARI MAKKONEN ARE TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE, IS NOT THE FLESH OF HAILE SELASSIE I THE LITTLE SHORT MAN THE SAME FLESH AS RAS TAFARI MAKKONEN YES OR NO, WAS'NT IT RAS TAFARI MAKKONEN WHO ASCENDED TO THE THRONE IN THE TITLE HAILE SELASSIE?
TO ME HAILE SELASSIE I AND RAS TAFARI MAKKONEN ARE THE SAME MAN BUT YOU ARE USING THE MANY DIFFERENT IDEAS AND CONCEPTS OF THE TRINITY TO JUSTIFY SAYING HAILE SELASSIE I THE POWER OF THE TRINITY IS EVERYWHERE AND IS IN EVERYTHING, THIS I AGREE WITH, BUT DON'T MAKE IT LOOK LIKE RAS TAFARI MAKKONEN, AND HAILE SELASSIE I ARE TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY ARE'NT. "
To I, this seems like the same problems that christians had when discussing the nature of Y'shua. This was a big issue during the council of Chalcedon. Some believed that Y'shua was a man earlier in his life (Chrestos) and became a godman (Christos) later in his life. (after baptism) This is called a polyphysite (more than one nature) view. This is the view that Catholics and most Western Christians hold.
Then you have the monophysite (one nature) view in which Y'shua is seen as man and divine. The natures being united without separation, without confusion, without change. This is the view of the coptics and Ethiopian Tewahedo Church.
I have no criticism of your post. I just found it interesting that this type of discussion is going on within Rastafari.
