Good to see you here.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š I grew up in St Kitts and so came across a good few Rastas in my time there.
No, reading of Scripture is not worship.
Reading Holy Scripture is a wholesome practice in developing our spiritual lives and we are encouraged by the Church to do this with regularity, for Scripture is an essential and core part of our Holy Tradition, in which we are to be firmly gounded.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š
Worship is the active recogniton and affirmation on our part of the supreme majesty of our almighty God, and the honouring of this fact by actively glorfying him, using our hearts, minds, bodies and voices, giving thanks for the good that he has wrought in our salvation and imploring him to bestow his mercy.
(As an aside, the Rastas I knew in St Kitts used a protestant version of the Scriptures, which has considerably large portions missing - usually the bits they disagree with, such as praying for the dead, etc.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š I don't know whether this is what you use as well, but if you do wish to immerse yourself in the Scriptures, do be mindful of this).
ETA, in response to Truth_or_Bust, you are quite right. The embracing of Orthodoxy is not compatible with holding on to past heresies that are contrary to the Truth of the Holy Orthodox Faith. When we approach the door of Christ's Church, expressing a desire to become a part of it, we do so because we believe what it teaches. We do not pay lipservice to it and secretly hold to a belief system that is contrary to it. Many prayers for you in your catechumenate. I, to, am a catechumen, and would be grateful for your prayers.
