Rastafari Talmud

Biblical Reasonings based on The Teaching of Qedamawi Haile Sellassie

Did Zachariah Prophecy about The King of Kings, Martin Luther King & Malcolm X? So Where from Here?

HIMMLK4

Yeshua ShalOM!

RasTafari Talmud presents the following article primarily to the So-called “Negro, Black, African American, Latino, etc. etc.” (or the Lost “Black” Sheep of the House of Israel in America . In the present day, America can be likened to a spiritual reflection of “Sodom (denoting; Hedonistic Decadence & Hubris against The Almighty GOD)  and  Egypt (denoting: Spiritual;Psychological;Physical Bondage)”.

During the 1930’s, His Majesty Haile Selassie I; King of Israel from the Line of Solomon, sent for the Lost “Black” Sheep via His Personal Emissary Melaku Emmanuel Bayen. The white supremacist establishment has conspired much to stifle the Truth of this matter by infiltrating many of the “Black” movements. The “Civil Rights” Movement (“The Molten Calf”), championed by Dr, Martin Luther King, was not immune to this virus.

The evidence presented is, as always, for the audience to weigh and balance before drawing any conclusions. The testimony is not an attack on Dr. King nor the choices he had made whether in error, ignorance or envy. The author retains a degree of proper esteem for Dr. King; Who, as a man, pursued his convictions with perseverance. Also, we hold kind regards for the men and women, irrespective of “race”, that participated in the “Civil Rights” Movement; Whom, in good conscience with sincerity in their hearts, were persuaded that the movement was an effective remedial course of action against the crimes being perpetrated against their fellow human beings. In continuing this pursuit of justice, RasTafari Talmud encourage ALL people, ( Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. Exodus 22:21) whom are in agreement with the Truth of the matter, to freely share in this dissemination.

HIMMLK5

We note, with respect, the Utterance of our King of Kings His Majesty Haile Sellassie I during HIS attendance of Dr. King’s funeral. Although His Majesty’s words, on this specific occasion, may seem somewhat invasive towards HIS perspective on the “Civil Rights” Movement, we may begin to better understand some of His Majesty’s words & deeds if we truly perceive that HE is the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah. As the Ethiopian Hebrew King of Israel; King of Zion upon the Throne of David there are “rules of conduct” that His Majesty, even as Divine Sovereign, adhered to…just as The Good Father sets The good example.

146949318 Micah 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

As Hebrews and Israelites, The Almighty Sustainer YHWH Elohim “Lord GOD”  has prescribed the “way” (derekh/דֶּרֶךְ;) we are to walk during our life on earth, in Spirit & Truth. For example, Deuteronomy 23:7 plainly instructs us “Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he is thy brother: thou shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because thou wast a stranger in his land.” Thus, His Majesty is gracious even though Dr. King had charted different courses for the present Exodus. Did Dr. King become utilized as one of “Pharaoh’s Magicians” in an attempt to keep the Lost “Black” Sheep of the House of Israel bound in Egypt?

For the Lost “Black” Sheep that don’t quite grasp the reality of the matter, it is interesting that the prophetic “Curses for Disobedience” found in Deuteronomy 28 :68 “And YHWH shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake to thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall straighten (qineh/קֹנֶֽה) you.” Is this speaking about you?

HeboesNOTE: Christ/”The Anointed”/HaMashiach [הַמָּשִׁיחַ], even The Father, has already returned in Kingly Character during the earthly visitation of Haile Selassie I. Evidence? Revelation 3:3 “Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.”/(Compare: The final confrontation between the aged and frail Emperor and the young and robust army men was like a scene from a Verdi opera. Haile Selassie scolded and insulted the officers as insolent, and they, with mounting ire, decided on the spot to take him to a military camp rather than to another palace. And on the way, he was jeered by crowds yelling: “Thief! Thief!” [Haile Selassie Dies at 83, Whitman, Alden; New York Times, Aug 8th 1975]) This brings to mind Luke 23:21 “but they kept shouting, “Crucify! Crucify Him!” (Compare John 15:18-23).

Eitherway, RasTafari Talmud is convinced that only by studying the Bible, wherein His Majesty proclaimed His Glory, will we begin to better comprehend some of the reasons why His Majesty acted in such manners that would often baffle most men. Also, with careful contemplation, we are able to effectively discern what Civil Rights are truly afforded to humanity. As RasTafari, for such understanding, we should consider the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for International Affairs (Compare Micah 4 with His Majesty’s Address to the United Nations October 6, 1963). Furthermore, we are able to refer to the 1955 Revised Constitution of Imperial Ethiopia for Kingdom Affairs.

SO WHAT DOES ALL THIS HAVE TO DO WITH THE PROPHET ZACHARIAH?

HIMMLK3

Above is the invitation that Dr. King received to meet and greet the King of Kings Qedamawi Haile Sellassie; Light of this World. The details are linked from Tadias Online Magazine in the Article: (MLK’s invitation from Haile Selassie in 1964; Staff Writers, Tadias Magazine;  Jan 18th 2016)

gandhi-martin-luther-king  Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to India’s Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi  as ‘‘the guiding light of our technique of nonviolent social change’’ (My Trip to the Land of Gandhi, King, Martin Luther; Chicago, Illinois, July 1959). RasTafari Talmud is not attacking those whose faith rationally advocate non-violence. However, there is sufficient evidence to corroborate that Gandhi’s position was hypocritical in many ways. The audience could research the allegations brought against Gandhi; i.e. Conspiring with Hitler, Mussolini, Afrikaans Colonizers in India..etc..etc. (in the video below; compare with His Majesty’s Address to the League of Nations & Address to the United Nations). Nonetheless, is it not interesting that Dr. King would exalt Gandhi before His Majesty Haile Selassie I??? Dr. King’s decision bring to mind Romans 1:21-23 “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified HIM not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things” (denoting the likeness in character of immoral man)

Although, during the time of Dr King, the political situation was quite turbulent for the “so-called negro”; it must be noted that a prophetic account of consequences impending Dr. King’s decline of His Majesty’s invitation is alluded to in: Zachariah 14:17-19 And it SHALL BE (prohetic), that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. (1st denoting: famine, insufficiency or lacking)

that come not up to REMEMBER The Feast of Tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot; the Ingathering “of Christ” during Second Advent in the Dispensation of Grace: NOW, in the Revelation of RasTafari we are able to ascend “come up to the Feast of Tabernacles” even in our heart & mind…STILL…THY WILL BE DONE! As in Heaven so on Earth)

deu346 HE WHO EXISTS YHWH THE SUSTAINER  Merciful and Gracious, Longsuffering, and Abundant in Goodness and Truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. (Exodus 34:6-7)

Do we see all the rotten fruits of poverty, disease & death being brought forth off the different branches that has sprouted from “Civil Rights” Movement? There is always repentance.  Exodus 34:6-7 “…YHWH YHWH THE SUSTAINER merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

On the other hand, it is good that El Hajj Malik El Shabazz “Malcolm X” had received good counsel from The King of Kings through his participation in the Organization of African Unity. Malik El Shabazz testified during the African Summit Conference (Aug 21, 1964): “Yes, the First Summit was indeed an accomplishment within itself. No one selfishly argued that it should be held in Lagos, Accra, Monrovia, Algiers, Khartoum, or Conakry instead of Addis Ababa. They showed respect for Emperor Haile Selassie, even though he was an absolute monarch and most of the others were from anti-monarchy republics. This first Summit brought together the African monarchs, kings, and presidents on the same level…it created a “working atmosphere” between monarchies, kingdoms, and republics, between the big countries and the small ones, those rich in natural resources and those that were almost barren.”  (download commemorative pdf: au_compendium_eng).

Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir? /Ezekiel 11:12 And he shall set up an banner for the nations, and shall assemble the exiles of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

WHAT IS GOING ON BEHIND THE VEIL?

There is ample information available, for the audience to seek out, detailing the FBI’s COINTELPRO and the effective dissembling the “Civil Rights” Movement. But; Cui Bono “Who Profits?”.  The following excerpt is taken from the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, in complete historical context, it is quite telling: “American Jews played a significant role in the founding and funding of some of the most important civil rights organizations, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). In 1909, Henry Moscowitz joined W.E.B. DuBois and other civil rights leaders to found the NAACP. Kivie Kaplan, a vice-chairman of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations (now the Union for Reform Judaism), served as the national president of the NAACP from 1966 to 1975. Arnie Aronson worked with A. Philip Randolph and Roy Wilkins to found the Leadership Conference. From 1910 to 1940, more than 2,000 primary and secondary schools and twenty black colleges (including Howard, Dillard and Fisk universities) were established in whole or in part by contributions from Jewish philanthropist Julius Rosenwald. At the height of the so-called “Rosenwald schools,” nearly forty percent of southern blacks were educated at one of these institutions. ” Due to the scope of the persons and agencies mentioned in the above excerpt, the author will leave it up to the diligent Hebrew scholar or anyone interested in unraveling the tangled web. YAH Willing, RasTafari Talmud will present further research findings.  (pdf download: 13th Tribe by Arthur Koestler)

mlking2 However, the question RasTafari Talmud poses is; Do the “Jews who say they are Jews but are not….” have a role to play in this diabolical scheme? Sadly, from the author’s observation and honest opinion, the modern converts to Judaisms study the Torah “Instruction”, contained within the Bible, and grasp the Truth of the Oracles of HaElohim “GOD” (including Cause and Effect, As Above So Below, Binding and Loosing..etc..etc) to a greater degree than most of the Lost “Black” Sheep of the House of Israel in America. Could it be that the so-called “Jews” apply certain principles and patterns, found in Torah, to set up faulty paradigms that are intended to keep the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel, in the global diaspora, in the bondage of Spiritual Sodom and Egypt? Is this actually how COINTELPRO and other wicked devices develop their strategies? Why does Apostle Paul tell us in I Corinthians 10:11 “Now all these things happened to them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come”?

***Note Corrections must be made concerning statements made against David Ben Gurion: from the perspective Alliance and Alienation; Ethiopia and Israel by Haggai Erlich. Also, evidence is being reviewed regarding the Pan-Arab involvement in instigating rebellion against the Davidic Monarchy of Qedamawi Haile Sellassie. RasTafari Talmud hopes to publish the findings after consolidation.

1-By 1959, the trilateral alliance was informally in place, and Haile Selassie derived an almost immediate benefit when Israel helped save his reign. In December 1960, when Haile Selassie was visiting Brazil, a coup was attempted in Ethiopia. On December 14, supporters of the Emperor sent out signals to alert the Israelis. Ben-Gurion ordered a plane to pick up the Emperor and transport him to Asmara. Here he rallied his forces and smashed the rebellion.

Lets see…the pseudo-State of Israel (or David Ben Gurion’s “Zionism”) is most likely a point of contention. In 1947,  Ethiopia abstains in the United Nations vote for the partition of the British Mandate of Palestine. (Link for Article: the Establishment of so-called Israel) Perhaps, in coveting the Promises of YHWH Elohim to the Ethnic “Racial” Seed of “Black” Israel, the pseudo-State of Israel delude themselves in attempts to prevent the full manifestation of Psalm 68:31 “Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands to Elohim.” (SEE ALSO Genesis 2:10-14/15:18-21). Bluntly, any Torah Observant Jew, regardless of ethnicity, should be able to realize the Knesset and Halakha issued by the so-called Rabbis who support their wicked policies built upon lies. Are we eating from Jezebel’s Table?

d882a95402ce44e5bae9e40ade833bb9_18 Israeli Ethiopian Jews have held a rally in Tel Aviv to protest against institutional racism in “Israeli” society. Behind the political veil: After taking office in 1977, Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin was eager to facilitate the rescue of Ethiopia’s Jews, and so Israel entered into a period of selling arms to the Mariam government in hopes that Ethiopia would allow Jews to leave for Israel. In 1977, Begin asked President Mengistu to allow 200 Ethiopian Jews to leave for Israel aboard an Israeli military jet that had emptied its military cargo and was returning to Israel. Mariam agreed, and that may have been the precursor to the mass exodus of Operation Moses. In 1985, then Vice President George Bush arranged a CIA-sponsored follow-up mission to Operation Moses. Operation Joshua brought an additional 500 Beta Israel from Sudan to Israel. But in the following five years, a virtual stalemate occurred in the rescue of Ethiopian Jewry. All efforts on behalf of the Beta Israel fell on the closed ears of the Mariam dictatorship. (PLEASE CLICK FOR THE POSITION MLK TOOK WITH ISRAEL. from:Jewish Virtual Library): When the “State of Israel” was established in 1948 many Ethiopian Jews began contemplating immigrating to Israel. His Majesty wise decision against a major migration should be considered. Although we do not know the entirety of His Majesty’s reasoning, at the time, an account has been given as follows:

1941-1974 The Emperor Haile Selassie returns to Ethiopia. He develops diplomatic relations with Israel and the situation of Ethiopian Jewry improves.
1954 The President Yitzchak Ben Zvi becomes interested in the subject of the Ten Tribes and asks the Emperor Haile Selassie to allow a few young Ethiopian Jews to visit Israel in order to strengthen their connection to Judaism.
1955-1956 Two groups of young Jews from “Beta Israel” totaling 27, arrive to Israel from Ethiopia to study Hebrew and other subjects in Judaism in Kfar Batya. Their goal is to return to Ethiopia and teach other community members Hebrew and Jewish subjects.
1956 The first Jewish boarding school is established in the village of Ausba in the Gondor region with the initiative of Dr. Faitlovitch. The boarding school is designated to children of “Beta Israel” from the surrounding regions. The director of the school is Yona Bugala.
1966-1974 Young Ethiopian Jews infiltrate undercover into Israel on boats from Ethiopia which are carrying meat to Israel. The majority are expelled by the Ministry of the Interior once they arrive at the harbor of Eilat. There were approximately 50 Ethiopian Jews living in Israel in 1974.
1973 Ethiopia ceases diplomatic ties with Israel following the decision of the African Union to sever all relations with Israel. Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Israel’s Chief Sephardic Rabbi, rules that Ethiopian Jews are indeed Jewish and that “The Law of Return” to Israel applies to them.
1974 Emperor Haile Selassie, ruler of Ethiopia since 1930, is overthrown in a coup headed by Colonel Mengistu Haile Mariam. Mengistu Haile Mariam begins ruling Ethiopia and establishes a dictatorship. Members of the Ethiopian Jewish community living in Israel form the Association of Ethiopian Jews and start pressuring the Israeli government to help the immigration of Ethiopian Jews to Israel. There are now 150 Ethiopian Jews living in Israel. Operation “Chor”: Seven Ethiopian Jews arrive to Israel as “craters” workers, the matter is exposed and those who were waiting to make Aliyah to Israel are caught and tortured by the Ethiopian government.

HIM QHS Royal REMINDER: And ISRAEL from of old reviled their kings and provoked their prophets to wrath, and in later times they crucified their Saviour. But believing Christian folk dwell in peace, without sickness and suffering, without hatred and offence, with our King Qedamawi Haile Sellassie who loveth God and who removeth not from his heart the thing of righteousness, and faith in the Churches and in the believers. And his enemies shall be scattered by the might of the Cross of JESUS CHRIST. (Kebra Nagast Chptr 44; How it is not a Seeming Thing to Revile the King)

SO WHERE FROM HERE? RETURN OF THE REMNANT? (Shabbat Parah Ezekiel 36:16-38)

We are able to access His Majesty’s instructions for implementing the development Ethiopia by studying His Utterances:

HIM garden

On Friday, September 18, 1959, His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I delivered the following address to the Nation, over Radio Addis Ababa: “The development programme that We have outlined to you on Our return from Our recent visit to friendly countries, has invoked an enthusiastic response from you and We are happy to say that We are satisfied of the unflinching support you have given to Our decisions on this matter. As you are anxiously awaiting to see the implementation of these programmes started, We would like you to share with Us the high hope that We have for the achievement of Our objectives relating to these programmes. We would like you to recognise that unity is in itself strength. Form cooperative systems and work in unity with your fellow-men for the benefit of the common good. Your eagerness to see the programmes implemented has given Us great encouragement for carrying out Our development objectives successfully for the benefit and welfare of Our beloved people. Therefore, out of the programmes that have been worked out to be executed during the course of the year, We have already selected those which should be given priority, and the necessary arrangements have already been completed for their realisation. As we have already made it clear to you in Our previous statement, capital is an essential prerequisite for initiating all undertakings, whatever their nature. We have, therefore, made credit available for you which, when properly used, would enable you to achieve your development objectives in the fields of agriculture, forestry, stock breading, health services, and in the sphere of other development programmes. For those of you who possess the land and labour but lack capital, We have made credit available at low interest. For those of you who have’ the necessary finance but do not possess land to work on, We have, in accordance with Our Proclamation which entitled every Ethiopian to ownership of land, established offices in every province through which you may be able to acquire land. Those who have neither land nor money will be granted land and a financial loan at low interest. For those of you who posses land, who have financial resources and manpower We have made experts available to furnish you with the necessary guidance and advice in your various undertakings. With the knowledge that unity and cooperation are in themselves strength, take advantage of the possibilities that We have opened to you. You have now to choose in your respective provinces, up to the end of Hidar, twelve people who are known for their integrity, loyalty and responsibility, who will be charged to give out the financial loans and who will collect them as they mature. The procedure which would be the basis for your selection of these officers shall be sent to you through the Governors of your respective provinces. We shall appoint three persons for each province to make preparation for the selection which you are going to make and to supervise the execution of this programme. The persons to be chosen by you will be provided with a Development Bank regulation which they would use as a guide in their work. The interest on your loan would be 2 1/2 % and the loan is repayable in five years time. Therefore, We exhort you to follow the guidance of your Creator; not to waver from the goal which We have designed for your progress and well-being, and to labour diligently for the early realisation of that goal. We want the year E.C. 1952 to be a year in which Our nation being aware of Our readiness to promote its progress and advancement, appreciates the value of selfhelp through co-operative labour. The abundant resources of Our country – its virgin land, its mighty rivers, its minerals and its fertile soil guarantee our nation a better and more prosperous life. These natural riches and the prospect of exploiting them should be the major driving forces in your endeavours. Aside from this national wealth, each of you is endowed with human energy and intelligence which you should employ for the achievement of these goals. It is a natural obligation for mankind to live by the sweat of his brow. “He that laboureth not, neither let him eat”. Labour and nourishment are equally essential for human well-being. Did not Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself give us the parables of the ten virgins and of the lazy man who burried his gold, just to teach us the fruits of diligent labour? He called his servants and entrusted to them his property; to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his ability. He who had received five talents went at once and traded with them, and made the five talents more. So, too, he who had the two talents made two talents more. But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money”. So use this available capital in the most profitable manner. Study your project; discuss it with specialists; and have the perseverance to see it accomplished. If, on the other hand, the capital remains unused; if laziness and indifference is diverted to selfish and personal gains; do not forget that you will have incurred upon yourself and upon your country a debt of the heaviest kind. There is no rose without thorns; there is no profit without labour. We have promised you specialists and technicians to assist you in carrying out your projects. But the leadership and initiative must always come from you. Do not expect them to do for you more than you can do for yourself.

Every labourer is a father – his labour is his child. Choose your project carefully, and achieve it worthily, so that neither yourself nor your country may be ashamed on your account. You, who have left your home towns and have fled to the cities in search of work, now is the time to go back for there is work waiting for you. We warn you in advance that those who are physically able shall not be allowed to loiter about the cities. Let us all follow the golden rule – “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. Let the officials follow it closely; let them serve their people and their country with humility and diligence. But diligence and humility and service to one’s country are not the tasks of officials only – they are not the tasks of anyone alone. The present projects will demand close contact and co-operation between all of Officials to whom We have entrusted various degrees of responsibility, guided by the example of Jesus Christ Who, having declared “I came to serve you but not to be served by you”, brought Himself low and washed the feet of His disciples, must render service to the people without charge for these services. As We have repeated many times over in Our last pronouncement, We would like again to emphasise the value of time and urge you to dedicate yourselves to hard work – and profitably utilize your time. There is no energy in the world, including that of the atom that can not be controlled. However, there is no scientist on earth who could control, even for a second the flow of time. For this reason never idle away your time, however, briefly.

Is it not you, her children that are referred to as Ethiopia? Our lasting hope has ever been, with the help of the Almighty, to help promote the interest and wellbeing of Our people – not to get disillusioned by remote hopes and wishful thinking. May the Almighty God help us in the fulfillment of all our undertakings.”

 

7725020_orig….We love this WordPic and the Truth it conveys!!…BUT, does any one people, religion or church own a monopoly on Christ? Let us not forget; “But I want you to realize that the Head of every man is Christ, and the Head of the woman is man, and the Head of Christ is God.” (Colossians 1:18)/For the husband is the Head of the wife, even as Christ is The Head of The Church (SINGULAR): and HE is the saviour of The Body (Individually and Collectively). It is beyond the scope of this article to present a Hebraic perspective on the “Masculine Aspect” (Spirit Principle) and “Feminine Aspect” (Soul Principle). Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

In conclusion, RasTafari Talmud refers the Lost Sheep of The House of Israel & all humanity to The Glory of His Majesty in each one’s personal and collective decisions on what direction we must take from here.

WE IN ETHIOPIA HAVE ONE OF THE OLDEST VERSIONS OF THE BIBLE, but however old the version may be, in whatever language it might be written, the Word remains one and the same. It transcends all boundaries of empires and all conceptions of race. It is eternal. No doubt you all remember reading in the Acts of the Apostles of how Philip baptised the Ethiopian official. He is the first Ethiopian on record to have followed Christ, and from that day onwards the Word of God has continued t

o grow in the hearts of Ethiopians. And I might say for myself that from early childhood I was taught to appreciate the Bible and my love for it increases with the passage of time. All through my troubles I have found it a cause of infinite comfort. “Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” who can resist an invitation so full of compassion? Because of this personal experience in the goodness of the Bible, I was resolved that all my countrymen should also share its great blessing and that by reading the Bible they should find truth for themselves. Therefore, I caused a new translation to be made from our ancient language into the language which the old and the young understood and spoke. Today man sees all his hopes and aspirations crumbling before him. He is perplexed and knows not whither he is drifting. But he must realise that the Bible is his refuge, and the rallying point for all humanity. In it man will find the solution of his present difficulties and guidance for his future action, and unless he accepts with clear conscience the Bible and its great Message, he cannot hope for salvation. For my part I glory in the Bible.
