The Million Man March

By Jeff Ziegler
Published March 1, 1996

Louis Farrakhan’s Antichristian Worldview on Parade

The following article is excerpted from the remarks of Rev. Jeff Ziegler at a debate sponsored by Lakeland Community College concerning the social significance of the “Million Man March” sponsored by Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.

We have gathered to discuss the social impact and relative merits of the “Million Man March.” Undoubtedly we have heard and will continue to hear sincere and positive testimonials regarding the effects of this event on African American men. This is quite understandable in that the stated purpose of the march was to promote brotherhood, community and personal responsibility. These ideals are certainly ennobling and beneficial not only for African American men, but, for any ethnic community.

However, it would be intellectually and ethically fraudulent to view the march from a mythical ground of neutrality that seeks to separate the event from its chief sponsor Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. Indeed, Farrakhan’s agenda is the exact antithesis of the stated purpose of the march. His anti-Christian and anti-Semitic rhetoric has been well documented over the years and while these seemingly capricious statements could be dismissed as “unwise” the plain facts indicate a deliberate articulation of an Islamic worldview which seeks to subjugate all competing visions of reality. Ideas do have consequences!

Many have tried to rehabilitate Farrakhan’s image saying his vitriolic speech is somewhat dated and that a kinder, gentler and more mature Farrakhan has become more tolerant in recent years. Yet, a casual inquiry into recent headlines will indicate that Farrakhan’s legacy of hate continues.

Since January of this year Farrakhan has undertaken an extensive tour of African and Middle Eastern countries where his treasonous agenda was manifest. I will cite a few instances to illustrate.

While visiting that mercurial miscreant Libyan strongman Col. Muammar Qaddafi, Farrakhan struck a deal which secured millions of dollars from Libya to lobby for the secession of part of the United States. The goal is the formation of a separate black nation on the North American Continent replete with a 500,000 man army and nuclear weapons.

“Minister” Farrakhan endorsed the policies of the Sudan which enslaves black Christian men, women and children. The average price of a Christian woman with child is $15.00. For Farrakhan and the people of the Sudan there is no such thing as an “emancipation proclamation.”

In remarks to the Iranian parliament Farrakhan called for the destruction of that “great satan” meaning the United States.

In Iraq, Farrakhan accused the United States of genocide and “war crimes” and again prayed for our total destruction.

Despite the clear revolutionary danger Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam pose, he nevertheless enjoys enormous popularity among African American men. According to a poll conducted by Emerge magazine, 44.6% of African American men rate Farrakhan as the black leader which best represents their views far ahead of Jesse Jackson, Gen. Colin Powell and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

It is evident Mr. Farrakhan strikes a cord in the African American community. Truly, he possesses a fully articulated ( though perverse ) world-life-view and he recognizes that by and large the Christian Church in the black community is inherently matriarchal, pietistic, introspective and antinomian ( against God’s Law ) and thus is incapable of reordering society. In other words “so heavenly minded and government dependent as to be no earthly good.” Thus, Farrakhan having a worldview can organizationally defeat those who lack a comprehensive vision of social order.

African American men must recognize that the only hope of reconstructing this nation in general and the black community in particular is a robust expression of Orthodox Reformed Christianity which seeks to establish and press the Crown Rights of Christ at every level of society and across every ethnic community. Only an acknowledgment of the abiding validity of Biblical Law and an optimistic view of the course and mission of the Christian Church in time and history will solve our nations ills not the religious fascism of Farrakhan.

I call on all African American men who call themselves Christian to publicly denounce Farrakhan and The Nation of Islam and to cease giving this man a platform through grandstanding events like “The Million Man March.”

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

Freedom: The Model of Christian Liberty (DVD)

“Give me liberty or give me death!”

Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.

The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

Welcome to the Second American Revolution!

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.
