Many churches with Black pators are opening their doors to Lewis Farrakahn who claims that he is a christian, and muslim.
What are your thoughts on this and also some of the teachings of the NOI that are not in line with scripture.

Have many pastors become so black centric that they have left the true foundation that Jesus IS THe ONLY WAY .

A packed house welcomed Minister Louis Farrakhan to St. Sabina Catholic Church on Friday night with a standing ovation and cheers for his health.

The 74-year-old provocative Nation of Islam leader, who has endured a series of health setbacks, didn’t speak from the Quran but from the Bible.

“Even though I am a Muslim — I don’t apologize for that — I’m also a Christian,” he told the crowd at 1210 W. 78th Pl. “Islam considers the Bible a sacred book.”

“A good Muslim is a Christian, and a good Christian is a Muslim,” he added later, stressing the common aspects of the faiths. “Whenever Christ’s name is mentioned, I feel at home.”

Amen!!!
Bro. Watson, I understand that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have a common physical father in Father Abraham, however, our "baby brothers" the Muslims come into the game with a double-minded doctrine. The Quran, directly taught by Muhammad, says to regard the Torah, Psalms, and Gospels, and says at one point:

Sura 5:82And you will find the nearest of them in affection to those who believe (to be) those who say: ‘We are Christians. That is because there are among them priests and monks, and because they are not proud

However, I cannot call Islam my friend even though they claim Abraham as a father. Probably at about the same time the Qur’an tells us that the Christians do have knowledge of God, that they believe in God and the Last Day and that they do not have any reason to be afraid of the Last Judgement (Sura 2:62). Also Sura 3:110 confirms: “Some of them are believers”, although the same sura in the next sentence restricts: “but most of them are evil-livers” (blasphemers). Even if they are brothers (which by faith they aren't), a brother does not guarantee to be a friend.

One of the most important reproaches to the Christians involves the Trinity (Sura 2:116; Sura 5:73), which Muhammad however misunderstood as a “trinity” of the father, Jesus Christ, the son, and Mary, his mother. According to the Muslims, this Christian doctrine is the greatest sin possible, the unforgivable offense of “shirk” (“shirk”: associating a partner at God’s side). Christians err in their understanding of the Sonship of Jesus (5:72; 9:30), since Jesus according to the Qur’an is only a human being, a prophet and messenger of God sent to Israel. And the Christians err in their belief in the crucifixion of Jesus 84:157-158) and in their doctrine on the fall of mankind. It was perhaps at this time of growing estrangement from the Christians that Muhammad proclaimed to have received the revelation of a Qur’an verse which has been often quoted by today’s Muslim fundamentalistic groups. This text openly refers to Christians as “evil-doers” or “evil-livers” and warns the Muslims against taking Christians as their friends: “O you who believe! Take not the Jews and Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who takes them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Many of mankind are evil-livers” (Sura 5:51). They preach a false Gospel, and therefore Islam is an enemy to Christ and Christians worldwide.

The N.O.I. is even worse. The N.O.I. is a fake sort of Islam! Lous Farrakhan will never come as an enemy to Christianity so long as he has the mindset of trying to win Christians over to his cause! Wolves in sheep's clothing never come as a menace, but try to sound and smell like a brother sheep. If I enter into a Mosque, or a Kingdom Hall to address the people, I'm not coming there to talk up their faith, but I'm there on a mission to win people over to Christ's side by showing love. In my own house of worship, however, I will speak openly against them. In their place, I will look for an opening foothold to link Christ in, and bring them over. Take apostle Paul's approach:

Acts 17:22-31 "Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; and hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; that they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead."
Bottom line my God/YHWH said have no other god before HIM, allah and YAH are not the same
Amen to that! Allah was some moon god among a few hundred that they worshiped!
ALWAYS a pleasure my brotha!
The only way a Muslim can become born again is if he or she has been chosen from before the foundations of the world ...there will be many Muslims born again through the blood line of Ishmael...and believe on Jesus as LORD...

Genesis 17:20
And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation.

A christian is some oen who has been born agin through Christ....given a new nature...if this happens they are elightened to the truth that Muhammed has nothing to do with Jesus...

Honestly, I enjoy listening to Farrakhan. He speaks truth that is relevant to the world unlike these sheisters we have today. All these preachers want is your money and praise but Farrakhan speaks TRUTH- the same truth that our leaders in the church should be preaching.
Jesus preached a holistic gospel why is the church not preaching the same?!<
Instead we worried about titles, building cathedrals and earthly kingdoms, popularity, status, who is more saved, who church is better, who got the better choir, who can preach the best, who can sqawl the best, who got the most members, how you supposed to baptize, money cometh, and the rest of the foolishness they "preach" about./b>
well lets boogie sheisters come in all shapes and sizes. any truth that is clouded with one percent falsehood stops being truth. as far as a holistic gospel I don't know what preachers you are listening to i happen to know many who are preaching the truth and doing it in a Godly way.
My next question to you would be are you a believer in Jesus as Lord and savior.
If you have committed your life to him look beyond the social dogma of farrakhan and look deeper at the core beliefs he slips into his message.
beliefs that are totally in opposition to the truths of the bible.

if you would like i can email you more information that shows the difference between what farrakhan says and what the bible says.

slao if you think for one moment that farrakhan is not getting paid think again. the brother is getting paid big time. do a google search on the million man march and how NOI profited from it.
now I am not attacking farrakhan because I know black folks many will get mad at you about him, because they see in him a black man of strength but what i ask you to do is look deeper into what the NOI really stands for and their core beliefs then you will see a different picture.
check out their beliefs in Jesus, the mother wheel, master fard muhammed, and many other beliefs .
First, let me say that I listen to Farrakhan's message to us as a social people NOT a spiritual people. Once he goes in spiritual things he loses me because we don't agree on that. My late pastor always told me you can get something good out of the garbage can.
Next, yes I am a believer of Jesus Christ and He is the Lord of my life but it yet gives me no right to point my finger at someone who is a sinner or not a believer in the true God and seperate myself from them. THOSE are the people we are supposed to be trying to draw. Scriptures tells us that we are NOT supposed to be dealing with those in the church who are not living according to the Word of God and calling themselves saved and/or children of God. Do you need me to give you that scripture or is that one scripture that you choose to ignore as well?
Next, I am not ignorant about who Farrakhan is, what he has done, and what he is doing. I am also not ignorant to the NOI and what they believe. So, that is a mute issue to me. His social commentary is what I enjoy hearing. I'm tired of hearing all these "get-rich-quick" scheme messages. The black church especially is guilty of always receiving but never giving anything. The church is a billion-dollar "business." Why are there homeless shelters and foodbanks going without money? I'll tell you why. It's all in these sheisters pockets going toward their million-dollar homes, nice rides, thousand dollar suits and shoes, and in some cases taking care of their side women, side men and children they have out of wedlock. Oh, and let's not forget the hush money they have to pay to keep their secrets a secret. I expect someone like Farrakhan to have money and get money by any means necessary but where in the Bible does it say that a man of God is supposed to do this?
Next, I am no understanding WHY church folk can point the finger at men like Farrakhan when they don't do this same thing to the walking biblical contradictions that we fellowship with?
Why doesn't the church seperate itself from leaders who twist scripture to fit their beliefs?
Why doesn't the church seperate itself from leaders who abuse people mentally and emotionally using the Word of God to do so?
I am amazed at how much scripture we know when we want to judge and condemn someone or some thing that is done that we don't agree with but when its something we like we seem to get the "holy ghost amnesia."
Where is that scripture at that tells us to judge the sinner?
I do however, know of plenty of scriptures that tell us to judge (and that righteously) those in the household of faith. We seem to look past the mess in our churches and want to point to the world.
Jesus told the Pharissees that they swallow a camel and choke on a gnat- this is exactly what this topic is doing!!!
Not every black preacher is a "sheister" (correct spelling shyster).

When you make statements like . . ."The black church especially is guilty of always receiving but never giving anything," you are making false accusations about a lot of black churches that do not operate in this manner.

You don't know my pastor and you probably have never visited my church, yet your statement above gives the public the assumption that my church is guilty of always receiving and never giving, which is a lie from the pit of hell. Being in outreach ministry, I know for a fact that we are a giving church and I am confident in saying that there are many other black churches doing the same.

Instead of condemning the black church, why not teach us by your personal example how to "walk perfectly in the Word as you are doing."
Lol so I guess now you want to become one of my BPN enemies as well!!!
Whatever you going through you'll get over it eventually. I guess you upset because you sent me that phoney comment pretending to come to me in peace when all you were doing was trying to find fault to do as you are doing now. I'm not new here nor am I new to the devices of church folk such as yourself.
Now, if you believe I am speaking about EVERY black church in America that is because of OUR ignorance. It would be foolish of me to believe that EVERY black church in America operates in contradiction to the Word of God.
However, the majority of the black church DOES operate under as a business so what I said yet stands.
I will speak against WRONG when WRONG is being done. It has NOTHING to do with perfection or walking in perfection.
Instead of you church folk trying to find fault in a person for speaking truth search yourselves as to WHY you have an issue with the Word of God!!!
