Is Louis Farrakhan A Closet Christian?
Gregory Kane a columnists for The Washington Examiner ask that question in a piece he recently wrote for the examiner....Minister Louis Farrakhan was the keynote speaker at the Nation of Islam's Savior's Day Convention this year.....In the piece for the examiner Kane said what struck him was Farrakhan's comments about Jesus.....Whom Muslims are supposed to believe isn't the Son of God, but just one of God's prophets, following in the path of Abraham, Isaac, Jeremiah and Moses....Now my son in-law who's a pastor/teacher have made similar comments about the "Minister".
"No prophet before Jesus caste out demons, that I can remember," Farrakhan told the NOI congregation. "Do you remember any of the old prophets casting out demons? They just talked to people, gave 'em hard law and killed 'em if they disobeyed. That was enough to cast out crazy thoughts."We have to remember that Mr. Farrakhan grew up as an active member of the Episcopal Church....Could it be in his twilight years that the "Minister" have come to accept the truth? Someone wrote this on a message board: No where is it documented that Mr. Farrakhan ever admitted that Jesus Christ is the Son of God; that he has asked Jesus to forgive him his sins, and save him.
Then Farrakhan talked about how Jesus could cast demons out of people just by ordering them to depart.
"Jesus was deep," Farrakhan continued. "There was something about the power of his word that the demons came out."
Could there have been "something about the power of his words" that made Jesus more than a prophet? Could he have been -- oh, I don't know -- the Son of God, perhaps?
