CHAPTER 1 "OUR SAVIOR HAS ARRIVED, ELIJAH MUHAMMAD MESSENGER OF ALLAH
The Black Man Must Know the Truth
No. 1 To know the truth of the presence of the God of truth and that His presence is the Salvation of the Lost and found people of America is to know your life and its happiness.
No. 2 Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years ( whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members.
No. 3 The archdeceiver. We are warned throughout the Bible and Holy Qur'an to shun this deceiver if we are members of the Black Nation (the righteous). There is nothing that is left of the truth of these people that God has not made manifest. And I am teaching you daily of this people. There are some Black Americans who will, after knowledge, sympathize with the archdeceivers (the devil) for the sake of advantage. Even some of our highly educated people will accept speaking in defense of this arch enemy of ours for the sake of trying to gain higher places with the archdeceiver . And some of them will tell me and the believers of Islam that they do not believe in any religion nor in any God of religion. The Bible foretold that this kind of talk against the truth would come in the last days; that the fool will say in his heart "there is no God." This prophesy is now being fulfilled among even our most educated class of people.
You cannot see the hereafter unless you believe in righteousness and unless you are a submissive one to the God and Author of righteousness because righteousness is the type of world that we will have to live under after the destruction of this evil and deceitful world.
No. 4 The Christian church. There are "die hards" in the Christian church. Slowly but surely the spirit of Allah is making manifest to the Black Man that the church and its religion called Christianity is the chain that binds the Black Man in mental slavery ( seeking salvation where there is none) and thinking that he must die first to get to heaven. This is really a misunderstanding because heaven is a condition of life and not a special place. Heaven is enjoying peace of mind and contentment with the God of the righteous and the Nation of the righteous . It can be here in America, in the isles of the Pacific, or on the continents of Asia and Africa. But it is only a condition of life.
Black Christian believes are warned in the Bible in the 18th Chapter of Revelation (last Book) to come out of her ( "her" means the way and belief of the white race and the so-called Christian religion) that we be not partakers with them in the Divine plagues of God upon her (U.S.A.) . This is the religion that that the prophet prophesied to you that the enemy will deceive you with. Christianity is not the teaching of Jesus. Their theologians and religious scientists will agree with us in a show-down that it was not the religion of Jesus; for the religion of Jesus was Islam as it was the religion of Moses and all the prophets of God. The Holy Qur'an teaches us that the prophets' religion was none other than Islam, the religion of Truth, Freedom, Justice, and Equality. This, the Christians preach with their mouths, but they do not practice Truth, Freedom, Justice, and Equality with us, the Black people. Since knowledge of them, we do not want to follow them in any religion because they are not by nature made to lead people into righteousness.
