I am not fighting against other religions and you misunderstood me because Haile Selassie said we have a religious kinship and oneness in spirit despite the many religions we profess. And Isaiah also says:
¶ In that day shall fiue cities in the land of Egypt speake the language of Canaan, and sweare to the Lord of hostes: one shalbe called the citie of destruction. In that day shall there be an Altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord.
and . ..
¶ In that day shall there be a hie way out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serue with the Assyrians. In that day shall Israel bee the third with Egypt, and with Assyria, euen a blessing in the midst of the land: Whom the Lord of hosts shal blesse, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.
So ones are free to choose their nationality from Israelite, or Egyptian, or even Assyrian!
What I am saying is many Haile Selassie I, along with Ethiopian rases take biblical history literally, as much as I have heard and read. We don't view the bible from an allegorical point of view like you suggest, but as Marcus Garvey said, a people without knowledge of their past is like a tree without its roots.
Greater roots rock reggae musicians have composed albums of music praising biblical tradition and if ones don't want to be associated with it that is their own problem. Selassie I glory in it and he is the one I follow.
Yes I and I believe the stories of the bible are real people who exist and they are ini ancestors who borned me. I wonder what kind of Hebrew Israelite who don't have ancestors then I wonder if you have the birthright ticket to call yourself Israel. The bible is ini literal history and ini ancestors and ini believe in the powers of the mighty God to accomplish anything impossible in the eyes of man, ( like keeping Jonah alive in the belly of a fish for three days ).
In Israel God is real and Haile Selassie I is his incarnation. As well as my ancestors and the wonders they performed by the might of God. Haile Selassie I ancestors. Judaism come way before Christianity and I and I glory in my ancestors of the Genesis train.
