Who are the Kristofarians? Mama Lucee Answers

Lucy “Mama Lucee” Awe Peters is an international reggae music artist. Her songs include “What a Kingdom,” “Hallelujah,” and “God Almighty”. Her albums include A Woman and New Heights. Mama Lucee spoke to about the Kristofarians as the visioner of the Movement.

The Kristofarians, officially registered as the Gospel Reggae Team Initiative, are a movement or group associated with the fusion of reggae music and Christian beliefs. Mama Lucee emphasises the connection between the love for reggae music and the love for Jesus Christ, suggesting that followers of this movement believe that being a reggae enthusiast should naturally align with being a lover of God and Christ.

Mama Lucee describes the Kristofarians as individuals who have experienced salvation through Christ and are now committed to spreading the message of the Gospel through reggae music. The movement places importance on sharing the good news and helping others fall in love with Jesus Christ.

The explanation delves into the symbolism present in the logo associated with the Kristofarians, highlighting an image of a lion with a crown and a cross, suggesting a connection to the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, a biblical representation often associated with Christ. The lion holding a sceptre of authority and a cross reinforces the belief that this lion represents Christ, especially the one who went to the cross for salvation.

Mama Lucee touches on the origins of the movement, referring to the biblical story of Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8:26-40. In it, an angel instructs Philip to travel south to the desert road from Jerusalem to Gaza, where he encounters an Ethiopian court official, a eunuch of Queen Candace, reading the prophet Isaiah in his chariot. Prompted by the Spirit, Philip approaches the chariot to engage with the Ethiopian.

Philip heard him reading from the prophet Isaiah and asked the eunuch, “Do you understand what you are reading?” The eunuch was reported to have replied, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” and he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. Drawing parallels with Philip and the eunuch, the Kristofarians see themselves as messengers called to explain and share the teachings of Christ, bridging the gap for those seeking understanding.

Furthermore, Mama Lucee addresses the perception of reggae music in the context of Christian faith. The Kristofarians aim to correct what they perceive as errors introduced into reggae music, separating it from negative associations such as drug use and instead presenting it as a medium to glorify God.

The Kristofarians express a commitment to living a Christian life, filled with speaking in tongues, spiritual experiences, and adherence to the teachings of the Bible. The movement emphasises the importance of walking in the righteousness of Christ rather than creating their own righteousness.

In summary, she described the Kristofarians as a group or movement that combines a love for reggae music with a strong Christian faith, aiming to share the message of Christ through their cultural and musical expressions. They strive to correct misconceptions associated with reggae and present it as a medium that can glorify God.
