"The belief that God will do everything for man is as untenable as the belief that man can do everything for himself. It, too, is based on a lack of faith. We must learn that to expect God to do everything while we do nothing is not faith but superstition." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

"(4) The last class of duskrtī is called āsuram bhāvam āśritāh, or those of demonic principles. This class is openly atheistic. Some of them argue that the Supreme Lord can never descend upon this material world, but they are unable to give any tangible reasons as to why not" (Gita 7:15).

"Cowardice asks the question, is it safe?
Expediency asks the question, is it politic?
Vanity asks the question, is it popular?

But, conscience asks the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Address to the National Conference on New Politics August 31, 1967

The common Rastafarian interpretation of Revelation 5:5 is incoherent and incorrect. In this video, Brother Omar Tobijah explains the passage coherently and correctly.

Religious tolerance does not mean that people can believe whatever they want to without being corrected on their wrong ideologies. It means that we do not physically assault anyone or deprive them of their basic human rights based upon spiritual matters. In order for the world to progress and evolve we must be courageous in challenging our own viewpoints to ensure that what we hold is true. If people never evolve from the predilections of paganism, false deities, superstition, etc., then the salvation of God cannot be realized and we would remain subject to malignancy. Anyone whose faith is rebuked should not respond carnally as to cause physical harm to their accuser because this type of reaction does not correspond with your vindication. God corrects those who he loves as a father chastises his son (Proverbs 3:12); any worthwhile guardian will instruct his subjects in the right way and censure their improper ways. How can you love someone and allow them to destroy themselves? If we have admonished anyones beliefs this is done to save them not out of malice. That is why it is written that Jesus came to save the world and not to condemn because his reproach is an honest correction that will redeem anyone who takes heed unto his message. Emperor Haile Sellassie The First wishes for all of his creation to acknowledge the truth so that heaven may be realized not just in theory but through the manifestation of our deeds.

The fact that Haile Sellassie I is dead perplexes some regarding the validity of the Rastafarian claim towards his divinity but that can be easily answered if we adhere to what His Majesty told us. God’s law dictates that death is a fundamental part of life, no one can live forever in the flesh; we therefore must leave behind a legacy of righteousness for the future generations to emulate, if we wish to be eternal. Haile Sellassie I said, "To free the human race from superstition and fear that originate from ignorance; to enable him to transcend the apparent obstacles of race and religion; and to help him recognize the blood-ties of the whole human race, Your Excellency has labored. To this generation, so tormented between modern knowledge and ancient faith, your scrupulous studies have pointed the way by which man may be saved from traditional superstition and modern skepticism." We should no longer adhere to false supernatural myths such as the concept of a fountain of youth, or going back in time, or living forever in the flesh for this all derives from ignorance and superstition; God did not create the universe in that manner. No one can physically die and come back to life, or be reincarnated, these beliefs are all false and contrary to the laws of nature which the Lord established. Haile Sellassie I was the Most High before he appeared on earth in a bodily form and he is the same after the flesh passed away; he always was and always will be God. We cannot base the validity of his divinity upon fictional ideologies such as being physically immortal or mystical. The message of Christ is the renunciation of idolatry.
