Dr. Rev. F. Keith Slaughter is the dean of the Morehouse School of Religion on the campus of the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta. He is also the host of the popular talk radio program “The movement with Dr. F. Keith Slaughter” on WAOK. Slaughter had the privilege to host Min. Louis Farrakhan on his show and answered a few questions from rolling out about Farrakhan’s message and its impact when it comes to the Black Church.

By using the Koran and the Bible in his speeches, is Min. Louis Farrakhan an enemy of the Christian gospel?

Farrakhan carefully handles the biblical text … generally with more integrity than the average Christian preacher.

Is there room for his message in the Black church?

Yes. His message is consistent with the original and authentic message of liberation that began the Black church in the U.S. We must be reminded that the Black church began as a resistance movement to counterbalance the impact of the racist Christian church, which was/is rooted in White supremacy.

Why do you think there is a perception that the organized major Black church is afraid of his message? 

Because some colored Christians love White people and White Jesus so much that they allow White people to speak for them, meaning they assume the religious doctrine and social positions of Whites so that they [Whites] will be pleased with them [Negroes] … residual slave behavior …

Is Christianity the only religion that produces safe Black leaders for Black America?

Some people believe so; not me.

Many say the message of Dr. King countered the message of Min. Malcolm X. What national Black leader is a counter to the message of Farrakhan? Do we have a united message?

There are many Black “so-called” leaders whose messages counter the message of Farrakhan … how about Dr. Ben Carson, for instance? I believe we are at a point in our history as an oppressed people whereby we can no longer allow space for “false divisions” based on social constructions to determine whether we support each other or no.

    Minister Negro Hitler don’t belong in nobody’s church. He runs a temple and obviously there is tons of room for his negro nazi teachings there. The Christian ministers who invite Minister Hitler are running a scam on the people they are supposed to serve and protect. Minister Negro Hitler is not a Christian and if he wants to preach to Christians so bad, he should convert and start worshiping Jesus.

    Farrakhan denies that The LORD Jesus Christ is God incarnate. He does not believe The Gospel , the life, death and Resurrection of Jesus. Farrakhan is an anti-Christ . Those that welcome Farrakhan are welcoming Satan’s servant.

        For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have ever
        Everlasting life”. (John 3:16).

        Ernestine, God loved you so much that He did not want you to be separated from Him for eternity , so He became a man in the person of the LORD Jesus Christ. The LORD Jesus Christ fulfills about 365 prophecies in the Old Testament. It would be mathematically statistically impossible for anyone to be able to do that unless He was indeed the promised Messiah. The only prophecies that have not been fulfilled yet are the ones The LORD Jesus will fulfill in the future when He appears in the clouds to receive His church unto Hm and when He returns with us to set food again on the Mount of Olives to begin His literal 1000 year reign on Earth where Bible says He will rule with a rod of iron. Jesus is either Who He said He was or He was a liar or lunatic. I believe The LORD Jesus Christ is indeed God incarnate. I hope you will understand and believe how much God loves you. Jesus suffered the wrath and judgement of OUR son upon Himself on the cross of Calvary . He did this so that we would not have to suffer that penalty for our sins in hell forever. Nobody has to go to hell forever if they simply receive by faith this wonderful gift from God. Death could not keep The LORD Jesus Christ in the tome. One the third day , according to the Scriptures, Jesus arose from the dead. Only God incarnate could defeat death and the grave. Jesus said , ” before Abraham was, I Am. The prophet Isaiah in 9:6 calls Him , “The Mighty God”. Nobody is going to love you more than The LORD Jesus Christ . Please trust Him today. We all need to admit we are sinners and repent toward God and at the same time place our faith and trust toward The LORR Jesus Christ”(Acts20:21)
