A problem exists within the Black community and among Black people throughout the world, which we must solve if we are going to enjoy the blessings of truth, which are... »
"Babylon is used as an example for some distant people or their history. According to the prophets, this name Babylon is something that begins in Genesis and ends in Revelation. It is found throughout the entire Bible; therefore, we must not look at it as one personal part. We must not look at it as spelling out to us the ‘ancient’ only. ..."
The idea of dialogue, truthful dialogue, that gets us past the media manipulation of persons, events, and the truths of persons and events. »
I would advise those who are ready to work, those who are ready for the real work of cleaning up our community and making it decent and safe and productive, meet me in Detroit. Bring your scholarship and your desires for this very well may be my last Saviours’ Day among you. »
All of our struggles, as Black people, have been against the evil of oppression, the evil of White supremacy that created in us a mindset of “Black inferiority.” So we have been chosen by God after 460 years of being in the furnace of affliction, to do a marvelous service for God and for humanity. »
When the pastors go out among the people, the people are saying, “Pastor”—in other words, they always have a hand out (as if they need something). But, we are supposed to be their servants. Not their masters, their servants. »
Every holiday of the White man is alcohol, games of chance, sport and play—that’s the way we’ve been trained, and that’s the way we act. We want to bring honor back to Jesus, and take “Santa” and this commercial madness, and put it where it belongs: In the garbage pail of history. »
Brothers and sisters, you are a good people, but you’ve been in the hands of a rebel against God; and any time God’s Guidance, His Law, is not respected by you, and you rebel against His Law, you make yourself an enemy of God, or a “devil.” »
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, our teacher, taught us that justice lies down with you when you lay down at night, and justice rises up when you wake up in the morning.

The best gift you could give on Christmas is you: Your heart, your love, for your family and your friends. Let’s make this Christmas a Christmas where Christ is back in the center of what we believe is his birth date. »
This is only the beginning: Brothers and sisters, once the enemy sees what the power of our unity can do to his economy, we don't stop there. »

Now, this movement is no "plaything." You heard me say, "Moses was not an integrationist"; he didn’t want to become one with Pharaoh. And why should you want to become one with your 460-year-old oppressor? You can "love" him to your death—but you can’t change him with your love. »
It is imperative that all of us who are in positions of leadership over organizations or churches come together as intelligent human beings to save a generation that will be lost unless we take the proper steps to save our youth. Our youth are suffering. And in truth, it is not their fault.
We’re about to boycott Christmas. You love Christ? Then the hell with “Santa.” Up with Jesus! Down with Santa! Bury him as a liar who is now captivating the people in Jesus’ name.
