none of you know what RASTA is, rasta means so much to so many different people. ALL THIS VEX, starts from prophet trying to crush other peoples beliefs. respect brudda.
try to protect the houses of rastafari, no one here should be allowed to try and disprove the Ethiopian Orthodox Church (christianity at its oldest) nyahbinghi or bobo, or 12 tribes. we are here to REASON on things that are more important.
LMAO. I thought you don't read I posts ? That is what you said in one of your postings about/to I. So my question is - if you do not read them how is it that you are allways responding to/about them ? If you are Rasta as you say then I man ask - since when does Rasta lie ?
Besides all that I did mention, in I reply to DeanM, that this is "I opinion" not once but, 2 times. Re-read it. So not only do you lie about not reading I postings but, you do not even read them right....
But, its okay, what you said above about I, because that is just your opinion and it really does not interest I. And, also because I know that I am not the only one who sight it the way I sight it...so, raspect brudda.
P.S. Why can't you and the other one just answer DeaM's question according to your views as I have done according to mine ? Why are you all on this "prophet7 this...and prophet7 that" talk/trip ? There would be no problems if you all could just express your views and leave I name out of your mouth/writing and stop pointing fingers....Then I would not have to reply to you at all. Then there would be no "VEX". Simple as that.

One more thing 1080man :
It is funny that you mention the different houses of Rastafari. Why ? Well you should know that the different houses also have different views when it comes to H.I.M.
For example Bobo Shanti sight Prince Emmanuel as the re-incarnate of the Christ, the Black Christ in the Flesh. Of cause they sight H.I.M. as and Prince Emmanuel too as "Gods" and together with Marcus Garvey, whom they sight as a Prophet, those three are considered to them to be the Holy Trinity.
The Twelve Tribes on the other hand accept Yahshuwah The Messiyah/Yesus Kristos as Master and Saviour, and H.I.M. Haile Selassie I as divinely chosen by the Creator to represent him on earth. Due to the stigma associated with slavery and the false/pagan use of the name "Jesus" by enslavers/colonialist not practicing what they preached, it is preferred to use the ancient names of The Messiah (Ha Mashiyahch) which is Yahshuwah, Yahoshua or Yahshua (original sacred Hebrew name) and/or Yesus/I-Yesus Kristos (Amharic/Ge'ez name).
H.I.M. is seen, by them, as a divinely anointed king in the lineage of King David and King Solomon. While he is considered a type/representation of The Messiyah in Kingly Character, he is not Yahshuwah The Messiyah/Yesus Kristos himself, but a representative of the everlasting Davidic covenant, which is to be fulfilled by The MessiahYahshuah/ I-Yesus Kristos when he returns as The Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Yahudah).
Niyabinghi doesn't have any linkage to or relationship with Ethiopian history, it is a part of the Rastafari movement and a manifestation of the wisdom of Jah. Niyabinghi are considered the strictest mansion of the Rastafari movement in Jamaica, preaching the ideals of a global theocracy to be headed by Emperor Haile Selassie I, whom they proclaim to be the promised Messiah and incarnation of Jah, the Supreme.
Further more, the term Niyabinghi means "black victory" (niya = black, binghi = victory). It may also be spelled in a variety of other ways, such as "Nyabinghi", "Nyahbinghi", "Niyahbinghi" and so on. It was first used to describe an East African "possession cult" located in the areas of south Uganda and north Rwanda in 1700 AD. Early missionaries and anthropologists named the Uganda/Rwanda clans, the Niyabinghi Cult (of Africa), because their culture was based on the veneration of the goddess spirit, Niyabinghi . The Niyabinghi Cult is said to have thrived due to the possession of the goddess Niyabinghi through dance and religious seances.
So all these different houses as you can see have different views which is all fine with I. Every man has a right to decide his own destiny. I and I do not belong to no man made houses as I believe, and again I say THIS IS I OPINION, that these divisions are just like the divisions you have in churches e.g., 7th Day Adventist, Jehovah's Witness, Evangelist Church of God etc.,etc., All man made divisions. But, GOD is not divided. So why all these divisions ? And this is in no way a "bash out" at these houses - just a question and opinion I man have. Like I said before "everyman has a right to decide his own destiny."
It is strange that you have nothing against their different views on these matters but, against I view which is also different from the rest. All I man is doing is representing I views.
So you can go on and have your different views about I. It really does not matter what you have to say about I cause I and many more RASTA out there will still hold on to I and I views.
You know what I am beginning to think (and it has crossed I mind before) ? I think you are just "Elijah I" signing in on two different names i.e., rastafari and 1080man in order to further on an argument. But, that is just what I think and I would not be surprised if it were true...LOL.
Anyway I am not gonna argue to you or anyone else about this whole topic as this is already way out of this threads topic.
Sorry you have to see all this bickering and "fussing and fighting" going on when all you were looking for is an answer to your question. Wish you the best in your search for enlightenment.
