We are all growing. We all need prayer.
What attracted me to this video was the way he speaks with such love for his newfound Christianity and the Rastafarianism which showed him how to find Christ. He is not trying to practise both religions, but he does acknowledge that Rastafari had some elements of truth which, upon investigation, turned out to be Orthodox Christian ideas.
I have long believed that Truth is evident worldwide; in every religion there is truth, to one degree or another. This is one way God has made himself plain to all creation (Romans 1:20). In this man I find the beauty of creation seeking and finding the Creator. His is a wonderful story.
We are all growing 'in Christ' indeed...Amen
I understood your interest in the video already. I am happy for him also.
The man in the video has present Ethiopian traditional elements that are only worn by very ascetic monks and or ordained clergy only. His apparent knowledge of the Holy Orthodox traditions of Ethiopia leads me to believe that he is not ignorant at all to what is proper for lay people and for clergy. rastas commonly ignor these traditions. rastas that convert to orthodoxy many of them also 'keep' this behavior. It is sort of a suttle rebellion.
It does not matter to this thread really.
I wanted to make it clear that he is still growing. I ment more growing 'out' of rasta life and into a Christ oriented life.
I am happy for him and I have prayed for him amd will continue to.
I will pray for you as well.
Please pray for me; a dreadful sinner.
