18, White and Christian, some help please
« on: August 03, 2007, 12:52:34 AM »

I've been a Christian Baptist for as long as i can remember and have recently been looking for something more due to  a feeling that most of the faith is filled with bigotry.  I've been reading up on rasta for about a month now and am starting to truly consider it.  I believe the doctrines and beliefs of Christianity but for me it seems that the way of life of a rasta seems more so right to me.  I guess what I'm really trying to get at is whether or not this would be for me.   

I know that alot of people must ask this so i apologize in advance if its a bit of a nuisance

Greetings Jay
                  Try to pose one or several SPECIFIC questions, if the I seeks a considered reply, then giving something of an overveiw of the I's own belief(s) / reasoning would help.

Seeking for the truth is never a nuisance, brethren.

Rasta is the base and truth of real christianity. It's simplicity and natural love at its best. The less material things and lies we have clouding our eyes, the clearer will we see Jah.

Like freeformras said though, if the I has any more specific questions-InI happy to answer.

Bless

I know exactly how you feel i was once like that i was Baptized Catholic and i went to Church every week when i was young and my knick name is Jay:P Rastafari is a true path and saved my life! Just keep reading dont just to what anyone says just look at things for yourself, leave the Christian philosophy you have been taught behind and be open minded in everything you read!

Gently on the giving up the Christian philosophy brother!

Jay, read the Bible- not the numbered soundbites but the Bible-

And keep your heart open and prayerfully ask for answers and guidance.

Don't ask for the answers you want- ask openly for THE answers.

It's odd that people think by coming to Rasta they can get away from Christ- it was Rastas who led me to Christ so many years ago- but then I was "too smart" to follow.

Remember that everyone who believes in The Supreme Creator of the Universe IS  One True Church all together.

If someone tells you that you are a baptist so you are not in their church because their church is a different church, that isn't quite right, in my opinion.
We are all One Church.
No matter what names people want to give themselves, how many times they divide themselves into smaller pieces, they can never get away from the Great I AM.
I am I and I walk with I am.
I and I.

Is that not how I and I stand predominate?

You can only stand predominate in hand with Yah.

If you are in Yah's hand and I am in Yah's hand, and the other brothers and sisters are in Yah's hand, hand in hand with Yah, how can we be in a different church, one from the other?

This is the error in reasoning we see so often.

I was "disfellowshiped" from a  church for refusing to divorce my second husband.
HEY I say- YOU BAPTIZED ME THIS WAY.
How many wrongs make a right?

Not enough!!!!

No-one can take God away from you- you can only share God with more people.

You do not have to leave one church to join another.

We are all one church.

No-one can kick you out of God's church.

You cannot even leave unnoticed and unsought.

Will not the shepherd look for that one lost sheep?

I find peace, love, and brother/sisterhood in many different corners.

And I still love and pray for those who "disfellowshiped" me.

As if a PERSON can say who is in God's Church!

Peace brother, study and discern.

Love God and love one another.
That is the whole of the Law.

Yah/God/Jah/I AM/YHVH

BLESS!
