(Sweden)Hello. I wanna be a rastafarian…and the last 6 years I have listened to reggae but this summer I found a bigger passion for it then before and I found a new self within rasta… the way of life as the rasta live was more like me!
Everything in rastafarism seems like ME though there is one thing that troubles me…as I understand rastafarians believe that Haile Selassie is God or the MESSIAH reincarnated.
And I just cant see how Haile Selassie could be god, now I am orthodox and have believed all my life the Almighty God exists. So my question is do you have to believe in Haile Selassie or not? and if I must as a rastafarian can you please help me and give me some proof for it?
A:No you don’t have to believe in haile selassie as god. It is all up to you.
But if you are going to be a rastafarian, one would think that’s what you believe…because that’s one of their foundational principles.
I am not a rasta, and I don’t believe what rastas believe. On the contrary, I believe that the Almighty is God..
Therefore if you want to get the answer to your second question, your best bet is to talk to a rastafarian and they will explain this belief to you.
Hope this helps
