What he said was - “I wouldn’t bring our young women and young men into some place to be slaughtered."
Couple that with what he said in Miami, and I guess his instruction to the 10,000 will be to kill white people right there, don't bring them here to do it.

He also said that white people deserve to die. Did I take that out of context? Did he actually mean that white people deserve an ice cream cone?

Why not watch the video of his speech on August 5th and see the conflict for yourself?

Shame on you for suggesting that Farrakhan have the same message as Dr King. Dr. King worked for the advancement of race relations. Farrakhan preaches violence and destruction.

I disagree, he did not instruct anybody to just go out and start killing people. As I said to buccsoldbat, his words from that video you posted were, "IF the Federal Government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stop them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling."

He's speaking on the law of retaliation. Read my comment below.

Martin Luther King was a man who was evolving. In one of his last speeches he said, "...there are points at which I see the necessity for temporary separation as a temporary way-station to a truly integrated society."

In his last speech to the garbage workers in Memphis, he talked about redistributing the pain. Before he was shot, he had notes to deliver a speech titled, "Why America May Go to Hell."

Farrakhan is teaching what Dr. King taught in his last message, to redistribute the pain via economic withdrawal.

We both are entitled to our opinions, so let's agree to disagree and move on. Peace.

As I said in my first comment, he's speaking on the law of retaliation. If someone is intent on killing you, would you stand there and die without fighting back?

His words were, "IF the Federal Government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stop them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling."

Look at the context in which his words come from. He's speaking on Justice, so if the government doesn't intercede and give justice to those who are deprived, then we can't just keep dying in the streets with no justice being done. The law of retaliation is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life.

In other words, I'm a peaceful person. I'm not going to come at you for no reason and take your life just because. BUT, if you try to kill me, I won't hesitate to try to kill you because I want to protect my life.

So, let me ask you again. If someone is intent on killing you, would you stand there and die without fighting back?

Did he happen to mention how many blacks in America are killed by other blacks in America?

Teaching about the law of retaliation was he? Fascinating - you may recall it was the stand-your-ground law in Florida that Farrakhan and others blamed for the death of Trayvon Martin.

And now he's demanding that "if the government refuses to act rightly", that Blacks won't Christmas shop? on Black Friday? Good luck with that.

Rhetoric like this does nothing to calm things down. It does a lot to fuel the fire.

I wonder if we're talking about the same Farrakhan. The one I know about said the following earlier this month - "“I’m looking for ten thousand in the midst of the million. Ten thousand men who say, ‘Death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny,’” Farrakhan told the congregants at Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Miami" He explains in his speech that he is looking for 10,000 people willing to sacrifice themselves and kill white people.

You're backing the wrong horse BlindMist.

Here's the lecture he just delivered yesterday night in Milwaukee.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v...e&t=50m39s

In the lecture, he covered Black on Black crime and the 10,000 fearless. He never told the 10,000 he's calling on to kill White people. That's simply an outright lie being perpetuated.

From 1:55:19 to 1:56:32 he talks about gang violence.
From 3:12:47 to 3:14:36 he explains the 10,000 fearless.

Minister Farrakhan has always talked about Black on Black crime and has even made actions towards bringing peace in the community.

We could start a whole 'nother discussion about Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman but everything by all sides of the spectrum has already been said and frankly, I don't feel like opening that can of beans.

Last year when Michael Brown got killed, Black people decided to boycott Black Friday, and the percentage of profits earned that day were lower than previous Black Friday sales. If it worked last year, with more people boycotting, not just Blacks, but as I said, Mexicans, Indians and poor Whites are also deprived of justice. The government can't go on forever ignoring the masses of the poor and not doing anything about the justice system that's failing the people.

Farrakhan is following after Dr. Martin Luther King when MLK was preaching on behalf of the garbage workers in Memphis. He talked about economic withdrawal, and in one lecture he even talked about boycotting Christmas, as Farrakhan is talking about now. It would have been effective 50 years ago and will be effective today.

First, let me say that I'm a follower of Louis Farrakhan. I've grown up under his words and teachings and have come to accept them as true. (I know this comment will cause a lot of controversy, but I have to say this.)

I guarantee you that he is not telling Blacks to rise up and murder White people. Last night he even just spoke and addressed those concerns. He went as far as to telling the listeners under the sound of his voice that don't bring ANY guns to Washington D.C. (Explanation in paragraph below.) The fires of a race war are already being lit with the statistic that every 28 hours, someone Black in America is murdered by police, generally White police.

Louis Farrakhan is, however, teaching about the law of retaliation. If your life is in danger, don't just stand there and die. Fight back. He has established a movement called "Justice or Else" not calling for Blacks to murder Whites but calling for us to do as Dr. King said and withdraw economic support until our demand for justice is heard. So, he's calling Black people, Native people, Mexicans, poor Whites and all who are deprived of justice in America to D.C. on October 10, 2015 to make a unified demand to the government of America. He's teaching that if the government refuses to act rightly by the demand, to boycott Black Friday and Christmas and withhold, specifically, some of the $1.3 trillion Blacks spend annually.

I don't know where the man in the video got his "facts" from, but they are inaccurate .

I'd say that was a pretty damned astute explanation! I've a few problems with it here and there, and it skirts a few of the sharper points of the dilemma, but overall it's top notch.

I'm a senior in high school and will be graduating spring 2016, and I plan on majoring in Journalism.

That was the first time I was ever asked questions like that. Thanks for the challenge. I'm still growing and learning. I've never read the Bible, but I just listen to a man that I consider a religious scholar. He's a Muslim but knows both Bible and Qur'an and teaches God and religion in a scientific way.

Nice work! This is an excellent exegesis! Far better, in fact, than I've read from numerous theologians.

A couple of things, though:

1) Apart from the single command not to partake of the fruit of either of the two trees, "God's law" (or Mosaic law) did not yet exist. One cannot break a law which doesn't exist.

2) Your baby analogy is a good one (Adam and Eve were essentially child-like in nature before partaking of the metaphorical "fruit of the tree. . ."), but then that presents its own dilemma. Why would any loving parent sentence a child to death for breaking one of his/her commandments? If no human parent would do this, then human parents would possess a greater sense of justice/compassion than God--and such an arrogation would be blasphemy defined.

3) Why would an OMNISCIENT God create the conditions whereby such an act of disobedience would be virtually guaranteed?

Consider: I put my kid in a room with all manner of goodies and tell him/her that s/he can have whatever s/he wants EXCEPT for X. I then place X in the center of the room, and then I place a much older kid in the same room with instructions to get my kid to take X. WTH?

In response to “Nice work! This is an excellent exegesis!...

That's the first time I've been given that compliment! I'll do my best to answer your questions based on my own beliefs and understanding:

The law was obedience to Him. It wasn't in word, but when the books (Bible, Qur'an, Torah) were created, all of the prophets taught obedience to God. That was the law in the beginning. He gave Adam and Eve a simple command to obey: You can eat from all of the trees in the garden except THAT tree," but what often happens is, when you tell somebody don't do, they want to rebel and do. It takes getting burned to learn you really shouldn't do that thing that person told you not to do.

Adam and Eve weren't sentenced to death. I believe heaven and hell to be conditions of life. They fell from the heavenly state they were in into a hellish state.

For instance, imagine a mother tells her child, "Don't touch those cookies." The child takes a cookie but doesn't know mother is watching. The child is happy eating his cookie. He's in heaven. Then, mother enters the room. Now, he knows he's in trouble. He tries to hide, but it's too late. He's caught. Mother chastises him. She gives him a pop and grounds him for 2 weeks. Now, he's no longer happy. He's in hell because he can't play his PS3.

So, Adam and Eve fell from the state they were in, and they represented the fall of humanity from that heavenly state. It doesn't mean humanity can't rise again. There's very few, but a few people in this world have achieved a heavenly state of existence.

Man was created imperfect. God created the conditions to ultimately perfect His creation.

Let's go back to the child and the cookie. The child goes 2 weeks of punishment. After those 2 weeks, mother bakes some cookies and tells the child, "Don't touch those cookies." Now, the child has learned. Dinner comes. After dinner is dessert. He eats 2 cookies, and 2 more each day that passes. The taste of the cookies gives him a heavenly feeling. He doesn't disobey mother anymore because he knows the rewards of obedience are greater than the punishment of rebellion.

So now, man knows the knowledge of good and evil. Some people may come up to us and whisper a word to take us off the path we're on, but we know the deal, now. Even if you're atheist, all people know good from bad. You know you shouldn't rob a bank. There are those who want you to sell your soul like in Michael Jackson's song "Money" when he says, "Anything for money, will lie for you, will die for you, I'll even sell my soul to the devil," but the scriptures teach to "resist the devil and he will flee from you."

When you know both sides of mama, you know you would rather be on her good side than her bad side.

This is the best explanation I could offer you from my limited knowledge.

Can You Solve The Genesis Riddle? (Part One)

I believe the Bible speaks in symbolism. The first thing to do is define, so here are my definitions, if not anyone else's:

Sin is the misuse of God's law.

The nature of righteousness is born into the human being. When a baby does something wrong, even he/she looks up to see if mama was watching. We're able to discern good from bad.

Tree of the knowledge of good and evil is a man, devil, who does evil and comes into the path of the righteous to sow a bad seed.

The act of eating the apple represents accepting the words of this evil man. This man whispered into Eve's ear and sowed doubt into her mind about God.That doubt grew and manifested into disobedience of God.

Adam and Eve knew who God the Creator was. They knew good because their nature was of righteousness. A man who knew good and evil came slinking up and took them off the path of righteousness. Obedience to God was the law. They misused that law, therefore they sinned and fell from the heavenly state that they were in.

1. I believe in heaven and hell, but not as places you go when you die. They describe conditions of life on earth. The thought I have is our bodies get decomposed back into the earth, and the spirit, perhaps, returns to the Creator.

2. Because everything they say is in heaven is right on the earth. "Pearly gates," pearls are found on the earth. "Streets paved with gold," cement and gold is on the earth. "Milk and honey," milk comes from cows and honey comes from bees. And they say hell is in the center of the earth and ten times hotter than the sun, but if that were true, the earth would be incinerated. But on the earth you can create for yourself a heavenly existence or a hellish existence. Our bodies are made of the earth, so it's only natural that they return back to the earth.

3. I'm not scared. No one has ever come back to us from the dead to say what became of them after death, so naturally we simply don't know. All we can do is make conjectures based off of what we believe in, what we were taught and what we learned.

Here's my poem:

Darkness
But even in gross darkness energy surges
Even in gross darkness life emerges

Darkness
An atom was sparked in its divine womb
A seed under earth, then it blooms

Darkness
Cause adversity accompanies everything of value
Light shows what’s hidden in the shadows

Darkness
That ignorant mind that needs to be shed
Be ye not conformed, renew the head

Darkness
What’s done in the dark comes to the light
There’s a reason why day precedes night

Darkness
Secrets in the shadows are exposed
Day of Judgment, you reap what you’ve sown

Darkness
The peoples of the earth kept perpetual slaves
Remember when you were once in the caves

Darkness
No knowledge of self, living a beast life
Hidden history cuts like a knife

Darkness
It covers your thoughts, the mentally depraved
No remorse for the 460 year old slave

Darkness
But justice is here, the truth sets all free
You’ve sown darkness now face the Mahdi

I agree. When debating or arguing with someone, I try to maintain respect for the other person and not let emotions override my position.

I've been in hostile arguments (online) where grown men feel the need to insult me and cuss me out, but at that point I just go on my merry way.

I don't think he really had a clear idea of what he meant by that phrase. Just trying to construe the recent Charleston murderer as a "homosexual acting against Christians".

But I will say that being gay has nothing to do with disliking females or disliking being male, if that is what you were insinuating.

I meant that based on our parents and the environment we grow up in, our psyches are effected by everything we experience, even while still in the womb. Certain things that the mother experiences may lead to a predisposition to homosexuality. It is my perspective that that's one way a person might be gay.

Gay control? What is that even? I don't support the LGBT lifestyle, but I also don't hate them nor do I have anything against them. How can you control gays unless you kill them off? And if you kill them off, who would be worse, the homosexual who might actually have been born that way (because when we're in our mother's wombs, we can become influenced at a certain point in our development by her thoughts. If she has anti-man sentiments, then a male child might very well come out of the womb with a predisposition to disliking being male. If an anti-woman atmosphere is created or in the home, he might be predispositioned to disliking females.) or the murderer of a whole segment of the population, even if not physical murder then mental murder if you attempt to try and lock them all up?
