WHAT ARE YOU SAYING my engineer isnt Rastafarian
Of course he is. He has also been baptised EOC. Many Rastafarians are baptised EOC, and they are just as much a member of the church as they are a part of the Rastafari movement. Selassie I is EOC, HIM JAH, so where is the line- how can you say a Rastafarian can not be a member of EOC- you cant.
A lot of Ethiopian Othodox Christians do not regard Selassie I as God, but many do. In Jamaica the Ethiopian Othodox Church, along with the priests in the church, is a large part in the Rastafari movement.
A lot of people who call themselves Rasta are so out of touch with Selassie HIMself, they denounce Christianity which is one of the main things Selassie came to bring light to. Deny Christ you deny Selassie. Deny EOC you deny Selassie. Anyone who denies Selassie I, of course, is not Rastafarian.
Blessings and guidance - Rastafari
