General, I must first say that I used to be in the same mindframe that you are in as far as Ethiopia is Zion, The West is Babylon, and InI are Israelites, etc, etc.
Those are the typical things taught in the Rastafari movement.
I am not asking for a typical Rastafari perspective. Rastafari people are not the only people who use the term Babylon to signify corruption. Everyone who post here are not Rastafari people either.
If you say that all people in Babylon (every place in the world other than Zion/Ethiopia) are Babylonians, then that would include nearly everyone on this forum including yourself...unless you are posting from Ethiopia.
Dont you see the folly in the gross generalization of people, especially Afrikan people?
All will be judged according to their work.
Not where they live.
Also, you have to come again if you call what you and disciple had a battle.
I call it an embarassment to this international black forum and all the people who read and post here.
