Greetings again and much pleasure for your response. I have tried my best to let you know, that my great teacher is now life, which is manifested internal inside of me as intuition. I am not a student of King James and his version for King JAMES was the King of England who particpated in the slave trading activities against African people at home and abroad. I have already read the King James version of the bible over and over again and it is telling you to obey they who are set over you, obey majestrates which means obey slave masters. I must also inform you that I do not get my fresh air which I breathe in, from the bible or any other books which is printed on printing machines, I do not get my water to drink because of the bible, the fruits which I eat is not created by the bible, and I am not able to get up and walk each day because of the bible, If you depend on the bible to function as a human being then that is fine with you, but I doubt if that is the case, but I must inform you that I do not depend an the bible to function as a human being, I do depend on the great powers of this great universe. I am a student of life, so I also learn from day to day from the people who I do meet. I also share what ever knowledge I have with those people who I meet. I do learn great lessons from the animals and other creatures upon this great universe. I do not think that the bible is greater than any human being, the bible was made by human beings, but the bible does not make human beings. It is the human beings who buy and read the bible, the bible does not buy and read a human being. I consider the bible and all other books to be dead books and I do consider human beings to be living books. Since it is the human being who write books, and books do not write human beings. The human being have control over all books including the bible, they can put them on the shelves, take then to work or church or wherever they wish, and none of these books can resist and that includes the bible. I have already told you that the bible is readable but not to be worshiped. Now if you are trying to proclaim that there is no other source of knowledge or redemption except the bible, please tell me what is going to happen to those people who have never read or write in their entire life? And what about the blind person who cannot see those dead symbols of words in books? Then there are some people still living upon this earth deep in the forest, who have never been defile by modern civlization, do you think they will have a chance to go to Zion? since they cannot read the bible?
It appears very clear to I that you are a very religious person, I am not, I am an African Liberator trying my best to play my little humble part, in the liberation of African people at home and abroad. And yes I have to speak about white and black, because African people were and still are being brutalized because they are black, and this is being done by white people everywhere upon the face of this earth. So I must tell you again that until the correction of slave trading activities is accomplished, African liberators will not hesitate to speak agains established racism.
Let I also inform you that I do have a number of question to ask HIS Majesty whenever or if ever I get to meet Him face to face, you see HIS Majesty is the blood relative of all African people and that makes me one of his relative, so as it relates to the speech that you are refering to, which he made about the bible, and other speeches, you do not have to worry about that, since we will talk as relatives when we meet, then I will be able to ask him the questions which I do have for him as a father and son.
In the mean time you do not have to try to argue with I about whether I am a rasta or not, because I am almost sure that you are now walking, and talking, on many of the social and cultural Rastafari bridges, which I participated in building in the early days. Let me also inform you that the RASTAFARI Movemant is not a stagnant gutter which is stuck up and cannot flow, it is from stage to stage most glorious. There are also verious stages of advancement and various missions for various Igels. You appear to be at the stage of a young person who can only speak from what you see or read in the bible, I am not at that stage. As you grow older and grow you will be able to Iver stand what takes place in the Iyapa room. In the mean time if the bible is what you have rely on to advance yourself, just humble yourself and grow, as I have told you before that there are some things in the bible which were stolen from African people like the spalms and the proverbs and so on. When I respond to these post I RESPOND FROM THE GREAT OURCE OF INTUITON, life is my great teacher who inspires I to write, so that is my mission, your mission is the bible, just stay with it, for that is where you are. If you happens to post again and I do not respond instantly, it is because I not near to a computer, but I will be happy to shear my views when I CAN.
Again I send many oceans of blessings to my people
ONE BLACK LOVE ONE BLACK HEART.
