I have no problem with Kemet but what Ive seen happening is that so many have beef with the bible that ones start to downplay the bible & hold high the "Book of Coming forth by day"
Being an african & being a Ras I cannot diss Kemet I know that these were the places were civilization really started not in Greece, Mesopotamia, or Constantinople....but as a son of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selasssie the 1st I follow in His footsteps...My King taught me to Respect every man&womans religion but till this day he never told me to look to Kemet & dashwey my bible....up until this day I never seen any speech of His Majesty were he glorifies in the "Egyptian book of the Dead" or live according to the ways of kemet.
I feel this is where many Rasses differ, some see His Majesty as the GodHead Supreme in Flesh so naturally they are inclined to deal with His Majesties teachings & remain loyal to them...but others see HIM as just another character in the big picture, they are not satisfied with just HIM teachings alone they are constantly looking for different belief systems or different paths to the Most High. Why would you call something that His Majesty glorifies in eurocentric or european and say that you are a "ras" or "rasta empress"...this is contradictory
If you feel that Ethiopia & the Bible are europeanized then why call yourself rasta & downplay the fact that His Majesty is a Christian Emperor who glorifies in the Bible & in his Davidic lineage I am sure His Majesty didnt diss Kemet(egypt)....there is a history on His Majesty gaining independance for the Ethiopian Orthodox Church from Alexandria, Egypt.
Check the link:
I dont burn Kemet because it is definetly the foundation of most belief systems that exist today but just because this is the I am not going to downplay the bible. There is socalled Rasta now who burn bible, burn god, burn Christ but say they are a child of Haile Selassie I....Why?
I dont know who threw the first stone ones who diss Kemet or ones who dis Israel the important thing is that its pointless InI are one & we should learn how to live together, I remember some former members on here Kaya Iyajesse, King David, & Timothy I & others who were constantly attacking Rasses for not sighting Christ or for dissing the bible....now we find members who are constantly attacking Rasses for defendin the bible, israel, or Yesus Kristos....lets not get territorial now..we keep contradicting eachother lets be our higher selves & learn to really respect our brothers & sisters from accross the globe.
"It is necessary that the greatness of Ethiopia and her civilizational development must go side by side with her spritual greatness" From speech delivered by H.I.M, July 22, 1948.
