A reason to burn the bible and to show you how wrong it is from the black man king James is how the Romans have it in their new translations. For the Romans don't believe in the commandments. Yeshua instructs us to keep the commandments. The Romans worship the sun on the day of it. They killed the true christians of Ethiopia because they did not worship the sun. The Ewostathians, real Christians of Ethiopia, moved away from the affairs of the Roman Church and the state. The heroes depicted in Christianity is that of the Emperor riding a white horse and conquering the dragon. Now Rome was first to say that that man is of Roman origin. Some would even go so far as to say he is of pagan origin. But InI know the truth. That man is the Emperor Haile Selassie I the first and forIver more. Only he did kill the dragon and freed the Africans from the tyranny. He came unto his own and his own received him not. But many around the world did receive H.I.M. and know that he is the true character of God riding the white horse and slaying the dragon. The dragon is the draconian system of babylon or the shitstem of Rome. The Roman Church throughout history tells the State what to do. The people then live in tyranny because of the dragon. The Emperor slew the Romans and freed Ethiopia. This is African. Never burn the true African message. The Ewostathians was a group of Christians in Ethiopia that did not worship the sun. They obeyed all the commandments of Jah. Rome got angry and mingled in with state affairs. The Ewostathians went out of the cities to live their livity away from the state. These are they that were the black men along the nile or anywhere away from the main state rules. They lived away from the state. The dreadlock men of Africa along the nile also lived like this. The message is important. Get out of these Roman states that are being ruled by the pope of Rome. Live the livity away from the babylon. The bibles are changed into something that matches the paganism of ancient Rome. The Romans today don't follow the commandments of Jah. They would say that is for Jews. They continue to divide and separate Africans. Now even the Jews are African. These false jews of today have only come today. Jews are still in Africa since the time of Solomon. Christians were in Africa long before they were in Rome. But this is of the Bible. So all new translations can be burned. King James was a black man and many of the Rastas read KJV Bible. KJV Bible is also in agreement to the old original texts that they found. Now most Bibles of these Christian Churches are newer translations or older transitions, but the message is a pagan message. So if the bible is not in agreement to the commandments of Jah, you burn it. Most bibles are in agreement to paganism. Blessed love.

GARVEYS AFRICA I get what you mean by using the name "James" over and over again. We must not call upon the dead. Please know ye that this was the first English Bible translated from the Ethiopian and other Hebrew texts that the people could read. The Bible that the popes had in the past could only be read by the pope himself. The people were kept blind of the truth. James the king of England was a black man. Much negativity has been pushed into this world by the agents of Rome. They did not like the man. Haile Selassie I Bible is also a Bible for the people to read. They are named after people that were Christian heroes and made the word sound and power. Blessed love

There are African Hebrew groups in North America who declare King James was a black man. Most say this is based on a misinterpretation of old English phraseology regarding dark and black; and of old paintings and how apparent skin tone was sometimes portrayed. The problem I have is we know the lineage of James and his mother Mary, was 1000% white as snow, and the same imagery and descriptions as far as I can imagine were not placed upon her. We also know his father and I am NO expert on him and his lineage but from all description and images I have seen, a whiteman. Did he have some distant African ancestry? I honestly not sure, but would say even so, if you are mixed heritage but the majority and main branch of your family 'tree' points to Europe, then a far reaching loose stem pointing to Africa doesn't make one a African. You can counter that argument with a one drop rule but the line has to be drawn somewhere. The man, by way of his status, naturally declared himSELF as an Englishman.

The problem doesn't stop there

As well as the Bible, he also published a book named Demonology...... What was James really into?

There are many rumours surrounding the time period Shakespear spent living with James around his sexuality.

Brethren, I do agree with you though that he gathered his best team of 'scholars' and assigned them with the task of the Translation. It wasn't James HIMSELF who translated. If you tell I he used the Ethiopian Bible as his main reference then thats a good start. But Melchezidek, havent you heard of the STRONGS bible? Easily accessible online via Biblehub, Strongs lists the original Hebrew or Aramaic words and we can see directly if InI agree or not with the interpretations of James' people. Regarding Strongs Lexicon:

"First published in 1890, Strong's is a massive index of every English word in the King James Version of the Bible. Each corresponding word in the original language is marked with a unique number, allowing the user to both identify the underlying Hebrew or Greek term and see every verse in the Bible using that term"

IF you use KJV I strongly .... suggest its this version.


But EVEN THEN, evidence of James' ordering and blessing of the tampering of scripture is none more evident by his romantic gesture to his lover he snuck into the Bible ..... Im sure this wasn't a one off perversion....


"'In the name Shakespear there are four vowels and six consonants..... If you write down the figure 4 and then follow it by the figure 6, you get 46.

Very well turn to Psalm 46 and you will find that in it the 46th word from the beginning is "shake," while the 46th word from the end is "spear."

Burn the bibles of the popes. Burn the bibles of the Romans. Burn the bibles of the Catholic Church. Most Rastas read the king James's version of the king Bible because it is the first Bible in English and is translated from the Ethiopian and Hebrew texts. You don't burn what belongs to the black man. James was a black man. His translated version many black men and women read. They could read the Bible for the first time all over the world. Before that only the popes and agents of Rome could read the Bible. They kept the people in darkness. They had a false bible and did not want the people to read for themselves. Haile Selassie I made the Bible in his language for the Ethiopian to read. The king James made his version available for the people to read in English. James's version was translated from the Ethiopian and Hebrew texts. Haile Selassie I Bible was translated from the old Ethiopian languages. No matter how old the Bible is, it is the message that is important. Please don't burn what belongs to the black man. Please don't burn what belongs to the Ethiopian. Many people hated king James. They made up a lot of negativity and said bad things about that man. They also hated the Emperor. They hate the Bible and will do anything to not let you read it. These agents of Rome will not let you read the king James version. They will say a lot of negative things about these kings that promote the Bible. The jesus in the Roman Catholic Church is not the same as the real Jesus. The jesus in the Christian Churches are not the same as the real black Jesus. The Christian Churches all have pagan gods in their churches. It is not the same as the real Jesus and their bibles are not the same as the real Bible. The messages in the bibles are paganism. That is why king James made his own version from the original Ethiopian and Hebrew texts and made it available for the whole world to read. Don't burn what belongs to the black man. Don't burn what belongs to the Ethiopian. Blessed love

I appreciate GA's original post back in 2013 in this thread because for a long time I was indoctrinated in the bible because I was told that it was the word of God and my culture and community were all reinforcing that idea. And so I was "programmed" and the more I saw people going against it (inlcuding the people who claimed to believe in it) the more I dug deeper, researched, debated, studied, and debated some more. It was because of this cycle of debating/passionate reasoning that I was able to learn so much.

But I hit a ceiling. And so I know that there is only so far the bible can take you when it comes to consciousness and spirituality. But until you get to that ceiling, until you become aware of its existence, a person may feel both a need and/or desire for the bible as their only link to "God". And their dependence upon "God" becomes their dependence upon the link. So usually, the bible who handle the bible with kid gloves or want to quote it all the time or always use the bible to justify or lend credibility to everything they do... these are typically the people who need the bible the most to govern their personal lives because they don't trust themselves to be able to do it alone.

Paul said the scriptures were a school master. He was right (about that).

But when you grow up with the bible and you get to manhood and you approach the ceiling and you start to see the limitations of the bible... that's when you're more ready to see it for what it actually is. It's a library of writings written by men. It is their impression/belief of the expression of the god within. They perhaps mistook their own conscience, that is a guide to us, as the influence of God. But that guide isn't universal. It only knows what you know even if you aren't aware of that knowledge.

Because that's how the mind works.

Ancient priests were like ancient scientists. They used theories of gods and goddesses to explain what they knew and believed about the world. And just like science, later writers learned from previous ones and previous oral traditions which predate the bible entirely.

We always stand on the shoulders of the humans who came before us. They contributed to our knowledge just as we are able to do once we have accumulated knowledge and wisdom worth sharing. You don't always even know what's going to be worth sharing. And everything shared isn't everything that is true. Many falsehoods were shared because those things had no fair means of proving themselves. So people built upon them based on their beliefs similar to building a house on sand vs solid ground. A firm foundation is tested and stable. You cannot do that with the bible. It forces you to believe and we want to believe our ancestors for the same reason we want to believe our parents. But parents also make up stories because the parent wants to teach something that is true within the story that may be a fairytale.

One can literally search for moral lessons in famous tales

https://hilo.hawaii.edu/campuscenter/hohonu/volumes/documents/SearchingforMoralLessonsinRapunzelKaraNelson.pdf

But to not see it means not seeing the forest for the trees. The bible doesn't have to be real. But I am a man of science in an age of science and reason. Therefore, I can pick out the good parts and judge the rest. This is why I'm not shy about my disdain and aversion to Moses. I see him as an early Hitler. Who else could commit genocide against his own people and be celebrated?

But the idea that Moses saw God and spoke the things God told him to speak? That's BS. Moses got a lot of his knowledge from Kemet. Moses also sought power and understood that people would give it to him if he could convince them that he was the voice of God.

So bottom line is that these weren't holy men with some kind of secret bat phone that connected them with a supernatural entity. They were just like us, had problems and opinions just like us, and were influencing culture because they sought the power to do so. Understanding the writers and their motivations helps one to see the message and the limitations of their words and stories. For those who want to burn JC and the bible I just assume they're on a level where they no longer need these things which are often crutches and often abused by pastors and preachers to get money or power/influence from their flocks while often changing the stories to fit a narrative; much like propaganda. But this hits differently when suggested by someone who hasn't done the research, hasn't studied, hasn't figured out all these things for themselves.

Im glad you appreciate this thread i think if you were here in 2013 we would have both critiqued the bible together to hopefully wake a few more people up from their canonized ignorance of a Roman 'playlist'

It was rough too. At one point had a majority of the forum calling for my exile, even labelled an agent,but we dont weary.

I still acknowledge the Ible for its importance in the role of the early developments of Rastafari, and will still refer to scripture from time to time, or end i posts with Selah and sometime refer to His Majesty as Jah. Yet still, fundamentalism and literalism are either the 'devil' or just plain foolish.

we definitely would have teamed up. Part of the bible's potent power was making people think it is good to just be a sheep following the shepherd. But there is a socio-political perspective where that benefits the shepherd more than the sheep and the sheep do not realize the value of their wool or the fact that the shepherd sees them as $$$.

But while using the sheep for their wool, the shepherd does provide a since of direction and purpose and that's what people definitely need and we're all attracted to the things we need even if we don't realize exactly what those needs are.

But people assume the needs being fulfilled by the shepherd mean that the shepherd is right in everything he says. No. This is simply the effect of accepted authority. Once we accept someone as an authority over us, studies suggest that the authority can influence people to do even things they know are wrong, like hurting other people.

And so I often find myself in a precarious position; watching while the sheep are sheered, allowing them to get what they need (especially as everyone is not on the same level in their journey), but pushing against the extremes of ideas I know are wrong.
