  • Support and Look after his Rastafari Empress

Support and love for Empress

Rastafari is a spirituality that is based on Royalty. It is important that Kingman be a demonstration of what it means to be a King for his Empress. Kingman in Rastafari has the last word and must never be seen losing his cool. Kingman is the backbone to his family and must project calmness and strength at all times. The order of Rastafari is child, woman, man, then Jah.

Mold and Guide his Youth

He is the one to implement discipline when needed, he is the one to make sure his children are walking the straight and narrow path, that leads to righteous holiness and purity in the eyes of Jah. Kingman must teach his children to be loving, to be faithful to Jah, to accept others as they are… but do not accept their ways or their lifestyle. For Rastafari Kingman knows there are many temptations and false truths in Babylon

Food and Love #1 Priority

The role of Kingman is to provide love and food for the family. A Kingman knows this, and does whatever he has to fulfill this role. In Rastafari it is ok for the woman to put food on the table, but it is the main concern of the Kingman to fulfill this position. All Kingman love his Children and Empress and work and provide for the family out of the Rastafari love of his heart, and the blessing, of his children and Empress from Jah the Almighty.

Love and Teachings of Rastafari

  • Read the King James version bible to their children
  • The truth of Adam and Eve, Jah first created human
  • Jah the Almighty creator and what is pleasing and clean in his eyesmarcus garvey

Rastafari Men do not….

Every Rastafari man fulfills his duties to his family with love and understanding (overstanding). The Rastafari man is the backbone of the family providing love and support whenever possible, and as needed. Rastafari men, must not drink, smoke cigarettes, use foul language, or belittle his children, or comb the hair of his children. These things are considered sinful in the way of life of Rastafari.

Thank you for reading.

Jah Jah is the truth. Bless.
