As a Rasta, I feel led to point out some things. First of all, to answer the question, some Rastas recognize Yeshua (Jesus) as their lord and savior, and see Selassie I as one who continues the work of Christ, through the line of David.

First of all, I think it's necessary to point out that Christianity is not defined by being a "lot about God and other spiritual matters". Most world religions could include this. You could just as easily be Muslim and sing a lot about a god and spiritual matters. Even more specifically than that, a group may have a set of beliefs that draw on many common ...

I Have been a Rasta for over 20 yrs and will try to explain our beliefs. It is correct to say all Rasta's do not believe the samething, but as said which way of life does.

Some might, although these some do not strictly follow Rastafarian writing alone. Many Rastafarians who claim that Jesus is the only way to heaven imply this belief from other situations in their lives. This belief, in particular, does not come from being a Rastafarian... although it does not contradict it - if that makes any sense.

What an awesome answer Ras!! I struggle everyday to make of what I know to be true. I came to the Lord many years ago (19) and grew in the knowledge and faith of Jesus Christ knowing and feeling something was still missing.
