Rev. Dr. Clinton Chisholm Exposes the Fallacies of Rastafari Teachings in “Revelations on Ras Tafari”

The self-styled Christian apologist publishes an impactful book to point out the error in the Ras Tafari movement’s most foundational beliefs.

SaintCloud, FL – WEBWIRE

A critical examination of the fundamental truth-claims of the movement concerning Emperor Haile Selassie I, Ethiopia and the Kebra Nagast, the Emperor’s views on religion, the Bible and Christianity vs. that of Rastas, plus Afrocentrism and black consciousness.

What’s one to make of the fact that most Rastas regard the late Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie I as god of the Black race? The Rev. Dr. Clinton Chisholm refutes this belief, among other teachings of the Rastafari, in his book “Revelations on Ras Tafari” (Xlibris).
“The Ras Tafari movement began unfortunately with a number of mistakes,” said Rev. Dr. Chisholm in his YouTube video, “the name chosen for the movement, the person chosen as the black man’s god, the lineage of this individual is bogus, and his names and titles were and are grossly misunderstood.”
So, in his explosive book “Revelations on Ras Tafari,” the author provides shocking perspectives on the origins of the Ras Tafari movement, the misconceptions concerning Haile Selassie’s names and titles, and alleged connections with King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.
Rev. Dr. Chisholm draws on his knowledge of the Bible and training in the biblical languages to prove his many points against Rastafarianism. He highlights the mistaken belief that modern Ethiopia is mentioned in the Bible and chides Rastas on their pronunciation of ‘Jesus’ and ‘Jah.’ As if it isn’t enough, he also points out some blunders in the “Kebra Nagast,” an epic saga that legitimizes the Solomonic dynasty, to which Haile Selassie belongs. Many Ethiopian Christians consider the “Kebra Nagast” to be a historically reliable work. 
“Revelations on Ras Tafari” also tackles Haile Selassie’s views on religion, Christianity and the Bible’s incompatibility with Rastafari beliefs, claims of Rastafarianism’s superiority over Christianity as well as Chisholm’s critical view on Afrocentrism, and black consciousness.
Indeed, there’s no discussing the Ras Tafari movement or Rastafarianism without discussing Afrocentrism and black consciousness. This book is sure to shake up the beliefs of Rastas, as well as inspire discussion and debates.
