January 2007 - In an article and video
entitled "Rastafarians v. Pagan
'Christian' Messian Dread", we can
see how people who admittedly "do not
recommend Rastafari" try to suggest a
fight within the Movement that is not there.
A reply to and exposure of
Christ-deniers acting like agent
provocateurs caught in the act of yet
another attack on Rasta's and Christians and
especially those who are both.
There are people who call themselves
"Christian" but will deny the
Divinity of Yesus Kristos. They come in a
wide variety of styles, and sometimes have
nothing more in common but that rejection of
(the fact that) Yesus Kristos is JAH, or
Let's call them
For usually, their one and only message
is "Jesus is not Jah".
Their "gospel" can be
summarized as "Do not believe that
Yesus is God and ye shall be saved", if
you will... And their target audience are
not the "unsaved", but rather
those who... believe that Yesus Kristos is
Their hate against that Yesus Who is JAH
can take giant proportions. It is, for
example, definitely not unusual for a
Christ-denier to go to places where Yesus
Kristos is worshipped as Jah and try to
break down that worship using methods
straight out of the Babylonian
Many of them have an incredible knowledge
about every line and sentence in the Bible.
Like the Pharisees in the days when Jah
walked on earth to save us, their
argumentation is solely based on a
particular interpretation of the Bible and a
rather revealing method d'operandi.
Because, it is not easy to deny from the
Bible that Yesus is really JAH.
This can be recognized in the fact that
the well-known cult of Christ-deniers known
as the Jehovah Witnesses choose to create
their own "Bible Translation" from
where they could then easily
"proof" that "Yesus is not
Jah" to a rather uninformed target
Christ-deniers have a significant
different message than the original Gospel,
which is the reason why they predominantly
Obviously, for true Christians it's not
debatable as to whether Yesus is Jah or not.
If He is not JAH, He simply cannot be the
Saviour. If He is not JAH, He must be a
created being and this would mean that
created beings can save created beings.
Everything boils down to the fact that
Yesus is really JAH and to deny this is to
believe in a lie. When you're a Christian,
For true Christians, it is not a question
where the Christ-denying lie comes from and
what it's purpose is. Obviously, the lie
comes from the father of lies, Satan, and
it's purpose is to bring true Christians
under a delusion that they have to (not) do
all kinds of things and things in order to
The apostle Paulus has written
extensively on this topic. For example, in
the book of Galatians he talks about the
Christ-deniers being anathema for presenting
"a different Christ and a different
gospel". He warned his readers for
these messengers of deception: "Just
like the serpent beguiled Eve, you are also
beguiled", he said.
It shouldn't be too much of a surprise to
find out that many Christ-deniers have a
strong hate against the apostle Paulus, as
they find him on their way time and time
You see, the Christ-deniers are on a
mission to break down the worship of Yesus
Kristos. A "holy war" if you will,
which gives them the impression they can and
must somehow use "all means
necessary" to make people stop
worshipping the Divine Saviour.
One of these methods became clear last
January 11, 2008, when I was alerted to a
video on Youtube that somehow suggested I
appeared in it.
The video was announced by the uploader
Messian Dread: Rastafarians V. the
Trinitarian Pagan Cult' is it the
non-Roman Christianity of the Rastafarians
that is Satanic, or instead that of their
opponents, the followers of the
Constantinian Roman edict at Nicea? We ask
this question to Messian Dread.
this channel recomends neither the
Rastafarian nor the Pagan theology of
As I watched the video, it became clear
that it was taken from a series of
reasonings by Mutabaruka, a well respected
independent freethinking Rastafarian and DUB
Poet, whose music is reviewed on the Dubroom
and whose reasonings I would recommend
listening to, even though I personally
disagree with him on a number of issues.
Issues, not foundational for Rastafari
but very much so for the Christian Faith, of
which I know myself to be a member too.
What was not clear, though, was just what
my name was doing there in that video. The
presentation somehow suggested that it was
me speaking there, and I could not imagine
why someone would suggest a thing like that.
They couldn't have done it
out of love and respect for the Movement of
Rastafari, that thing was quite clear to me.
They were not Rasta's either. In fact, they
were anti-Rasta and obviously trying to
After all, in their own words they did
"not recommend Rastafari" and
talked about the "Christianity of the
Rastafarians" where there is no such
thing as the "Christianity of the
I did a little research and discovered an
article called "Rastafarians
v. Pagan 'Christian' Messian Dread",
wherein some thing became more clear. These
anti-Rastafarians considered me a Pagan for
worshipping Yesus Kristos as JAH and
acknowledging the Trinity, just like the
Ethiopian Emperor did when he assumed the
name Selassie (Selassie means Trinity).
The article started with a link to the
video on Youtube and the following review of
Their (The Rasta's in the Video,
MD) quarrel is with the "white
Christ" in whose name racist crimes
have been perpetrated, not the true
Christ, Messiah Yahshua. We endorse their
rejection of the Pagan Cult, Toam
Trinitarianism, whether Catholic or
Protestant, since together with the
Pauline error, extinguishes the firs of
Yeshua's teaching on Salvation. Yet we do
not endorse the Unitarian,or Trinitarian
Selassie religion, though its Christian
spirit of Messianic Judaism will most
likely be greeted with mercy and grace
from the one YHWH, the most gracious and
I recognized the page as one of a
Christ-denier. All kinds of Bible
scriptures, a denial of the writings of
Paulus the Apostle, and an inability to see
any Christianity outside of a denomination
or other ism.
Signs of con-fusion or Babylon all over!
I also recognized more attempts to divide
Rasta as it turned out the writer was well
aware of the fact that Selassie means
"Trinity" and how there are really
many different views on Christ and the
Emperor within the Movement.
This was obviously an attempt to fight
Rastafari. In a rather dirty way, I might
Trying to put one Rasta against another
for something that is foundational for a
Christian but not necessarily for a Rasta,
by someone who admittedly does "not
recommend Rastafari" and obviously has
an issue with the fact that I do believe
Yesus Kristos to be JAH: I needed to do a
little bit more research.
I found another website by the same
people. Interestingly enough, they presented
themselves as part of "The
antithesis of the current satanic system".
The "good cop" in a
game-of-downpression known as the Hegelian
Just like New Age "researchers"
such as Michael Tsarion and Jordan Maxwell
present themselves as opposers of Babylon
System where in reality they are teaching
the very doctrines of the ancient Mystery
Schools, here we had another participant in
the game of thesis and anti-thesis, the
The Christ-deniers wanted me to choose
between their thesis and their anti-thesis,
too. They gave me a choice between:
the non-Roman Christianity of the
Rastafarians (...), or instead that of
their opponents, the followers of the
Constantinian Roman edict at Nicea (LINK)
Now obviously, with the Ethiopian Emperor
Haile Selassie being a
"Trinitarian", for the name
Selassie means Trinity, the difference
between a Christian Rasta and one who
follows the Babylonian Church-and-State
system called Babylon, is not based on one's
view on the Trinity.
It was obvious, that this was a
trick-question and an attempt to put
Rastafari against Rastafari.
It was obvious an attack on the Divinity
of Yesus Kristos Himself, even!
I continued my research.
Next to audio files with titles like
the False Apostle" I could
also click on long
citations from the Islamic Koran.
I remembered seeing a comment on yet a third
website by the same people, that said how Islam
was supposed to be closer to "early
Christianity" than "modern day
These people obviously had a very, very
big problem with the fact that Yesus Kristos
really is JAH, and with the fact that I do
proclaim my belief in this Yesus Kristos Who
Additionally, they have a big problem
with Rastafari too.
Even though they admittedly "do not
recommend Rastafari", they saw no
problem in defining the "Christianity
of the Rastafarians", even though there
is no such thing as a "Christianity of
It's an absurdity, of course. A line of
reasoning that is so obviously a teaching
from Satan's book of tricks that it needs no
If you admittedly "do not recommend
Rastafari", than why not simply leave
it alone? The Movement of Rastafari is not
based on no writs and rites, but on a matter
of the heart.
I do recommend Rastafari, and I also
recommend the Divine Saviour Yesus Kristos
And sure, there is plenty debate within
the Movement of Rastafari about the person
of Yesus Kristos, about the Ethiopian
Emperor, and a lot more.
But none of these things are to be used
by someone who has an issue with my
Christianity rather than my Rastafarian
sympathies if you will.
