What are founding beliefs of Rastafarianism? by Empress Yuajah
Answer by Empress Yuajah:
Oh ok…You mean the beliefs that Rastafari was founded on…No human can really answer this question for you if they are not a Rasta. I will do the best I can.
- Black (African) People – These are the original and true Israelites/Hebrews, mentioned in the bible
- Natural Living – Rastafari people believe natural living is best because it is Jah intended way for “man” to live, eat and thrive. (fruits, vegetables, mediation, live off the land etc)
- Jah is The Most High – There is God. Life living by the word and directions of Jah, is a life that is prosperous, blessed, rewarding, feeds and uplifts the spirit.
- Judgement – Rasta believe in Judgement. We know that Jah will Judge every man woman and child according to their deeds. He gave us the 10 commandments to live by with other decrees and statues…he will judge each of us according to these.
- Zion (Heaven) Bound – Every Rasta lifes his life Zion Bound. We prepare our selves for entry. We know Jah is there. Our Ancestors are there…all good things are in Zion. Rasta look forward to Zion.
