RELIGION AND ITS PURPOSE

Reader comment on item: Louis Farrakhan Is Not a Muslim

Submitted by Anonymous (United States), Mar 4, 2006 at 06:07

This is what I believe: Religion is the basis in which man defines its purpose and explanation of existence, and in its own original right meant for the inspiring of ones faith and spiritual self.

Religion is the way in which we determine how we should interpret a very mysterious God that is beyond our understanding.
Every one that speaks in the name of a religion should hold theirselves accountable. Muslims make claims, that where never ordered by their great Prophet or "Allah"
And Christians make claims, that were never among Jesus Teachings.
And Jews make claims that condradict the most sacred prophecies of the christian Faith.
Who is right?
Who is wrong?
Youre wrong if your religion becomes a tool of control!

If we dilute the only thing that separates us from the Monkeys wallering around in Africa, we destroy something very important to us.
and once that Light has been shut down and turned off from the world we will no longer see our true purpose. The white men of the Klu Klux Klan use to robe theirselves, put on crucifixes and and kill and rape black women, and then shortly after go to their baptist churches and sing hymnals. and they made the world believe that they where just good christian folk doing what God would have them do. Yes, and from what bible did they get that direction?

My point is, religion is power and the very Powers of this earth understand that.
And on that same note, if you can use a mans religion against him, You can deal a very great blow to his people.
But I believe the NOI has to re-define itself, We in Black America are not sure what to believe when it comes to the Nation of Islam.

We rally behind the Honorable Minister's fight to empower the mind and soul of a nation, a black nation. but as a just people we can't allow justification to use a religious base for manipulation of anybody, even if he is a white devil.
our battle is void and without cause if we do so.
