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."
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?
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.

  1. I think Minister Farrakhan isn't far from a follower of Christ if he already isn't one but I think pride would keep him from doing so 'converting'. Jesus said "I have other sheep"...

  2. Minister Farrakhan is one helluva great speaker. On a couple of occasions over the years I've gone to see him speak. He knows how to hold a crowd, I'll give him that.

    But listening to him speak is like eating watermelon. Even though it's good, you've gotta constantly spit out the seeds. I couldn't possibly swallow the seeds he's putting out and no, he's not a Christian. As I recall, he used to make fun of those of us in the audience that were Christians.

  3. i hear you Reggie on the making fun of Christians...but didn't the Apostle Paul make fun of Christians and persecute them too before his conversion?

    i agree with Anonymous on one thing...it doesn't sound like he is far from the Kingdom of God...as a matter of fact what he said..."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?" is awfully reminiscent of the way the some people viewed Jesus before they caught unto who He was...like Nicodemus. I am not saying that he is or isn't a Christian i am not a judge of that but i can say that if he meant it and if it is something going through his mind...i believe he has at least some fruit of the conviction and revelation of Christ.

  5. Louis Farrakhan recently in 2012 stated and I quote " I have come into the realization that there is but one God, JESUS is Lord, and the Nation of Islam is a nation of Black Christian Muslims" he went on to say, "We are Christians because we now believe JESUS is the son of God, Muslim because we understand that the Qur'an was written based on the mortality of Christianity for the black man, woman, and child, a book, not the Bible. We honor the teachings but spiritually we honor JESUS as the son of God." So basically us Muslims are now Christian Muslims and we no longer reference Fard Muhammad as God in the flesh but JESUS as God in the flesh. If you pay attention Minister Farrakhan pretty much always references the Bible. Minister Farrakhan said JESUS is the only to the Father in Heaven. I go to mosque Maryam in Chicago. It's the NOI's headquarters. :-)

  6. Farrakhan is traitor to the Nation of Islam! He denounced Mohammad saying he isn't God. He claims Jesus is God! Jesus was just a man like myself but Minister Farrakhan at Mosque Maryam breaking down in tears asking everyone to forgive him because he didn't know. He said Elijah Muhammad was brainwashed and convinced him to believe in Mohammad. He said he has known Jesus is God for a long time but was afraid to come out and say it out fear of loosing everything but now he don't care because he has to make it for the young people. I feel Minister Farrakhan should step down as our leader because he is really a Christian and I don't want no Bible thumping Christian as our leader. Don't get me wrong, Jesus was real but he was just a prophet, not God like Minister Farrakhan is saying. All the man talks about is Jesus. He never even teaches out of the Qur'an. He'll just throw it out there or Elijah Muhammad's name out there to keep us quiet. We KNOW he is a Christian he just needs to step down.

    1. We all evolve and grow...why can't Minister Farrakhan? I was born and raised Muslim but I too couldn't deny Jesus as Lord. I actually remember the service you are talking about... I had been praying and Minister Farrakhan denouncing Mohammad and accepting Jesus was all the proof I needed to accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. He was under a lot of pressure from the board of the Nation to step down but after a closed door meeting that all changed. Minister Farrakhan has the full support of the Nation. If it bothers you so much that he has accepted Christianity then why don't you just leave the Nation? And another thing, where do you get off getting angry because Minister Farrakhan deviated from Elijah Muhammad's teachings...Elijah Muhammad was a great teacher but as a man had many issues and hurt a lot of people including Minister Farrakhan and his wife. I guess you forgot it was Elijah Muhammad who had Malcolm X killed and then tried to kill the Minister because he tried to leave the Nation after Malcolm X was killed by bombing his house almost killing his daughter. So don't question his loyalty to Elijah Muhammad. He honored him well despite issues they had.

  8. Yes! Farrakhan is a Christian. He's not in the closet any longer since he openly denounced Mohammad. All I can say is about time! I'm glad he finally see the marvelous light. Time for him to get baptized!

  10. Farrakhan has always been a Christian. He only joined the NOI because Malcolm X convinced him. That man teaches more from the Bible than the Qur'an and he only references Elijah Muhammad as his teacher like Christians reference their pastor. He knows Jesus is God, heck he even admitted it and basically said Mohammad was a false God.
