Pure confusion. The true Gospel was the kingdom set up in Acts 2. It is not a message of being saved from a bad afterlife, it is a message of reigning with the king now. Babylon dropped the ball just after it caught it, yet kept running as if it had it. Everyone followed it, but the ball was gone.

The principle ideoloy of all major Western religions of Judaic origin (those which adhere to Abraham) are all sourced from Kemet. As Rasta we identify with the original self in InI original form from InI original land, it would seem foolish to ask the student/pirate/slavemaster about religion or any other concept, seeing as it was InI who gave it to them/him. Most rasta will instead look into themselves, hence spirituality instead of religion.
The books of the grandmasters like Dr Bens African Origins of the 3 Major Religions tell you all you need to know.
In addition, history has shown time and time again the detrimental effect on indiginous african practices from the heavily forced theocracy of the Cross or the Half-Moon. The Dogon tribe (for example) have been running from Western Religion influence for thousands of years.
