Will blacks overwhelmingly vote for Obama again and insult the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King and his civil rights' values?

One of America’s greatest social reformers.

Was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A Christian? – jesus-is-lord.com/king.htm

Excerpt:

Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you!
for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

Luke 6:26

Given the subject of this article–Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.–there is something that I want to establish here. I’m Black and there are some things that I’m glad about as a Black person. I’m glad that I don’t have to sit in the back of the bus when I choose to ride one. I’m glad that I was able to attend the university of my choice. I’m glad that my husband can work in a good career. I’m glad that when we stay at a hotel we don’t have to enter through the back door. I’m glad that we can eat at whatever restaurant we want to and that we don’t have to stand in the kitchen to eat our food. I’m glad that I don’t have to look for a “colored” sign when I need to relieve myself or when I want a drink of water. I’M GLAD ABOUT THESE THINGS. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a part in bringing these things about……

……Early this year (1998), my little sister asked me to look up some stuff on the internet for a paper she was doing on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  As I surfed, the Lord put a thought in my mind, “Did this man ever testify of Me?” I thought to myself, “Mmmmm. The world loved this man. If he was preaching the gospel, the world would have hated him.” I started looking up Martin Luther King’s writings. As I read, I realized that he was a stranger, a foreigner to me. Whenever he mentioned Jesus, it was along with mere mortals like Socrates or Ghandi. In his jailhouse letter, King lumped all religions into the same class. I could not find one “sermon” where he preached Jesus Christ and Him crucified. What I saw is that this man “preached” a social gospel using Black churches as his springboard.

King’s philosophy is rather reminiscent of the Catholic Liberation Theology in South America. After several hours of reading of him on the internet, I told my husband that this man was not our brother in Christ. Someone who called himself “Reverend” and preached in churches was obviously not saved. For 32 years, I’d heard great and favorable things about Martin Luther King, Jr. His name was, and is, synonymous with civil rights. But in 1998, the Lord Jesus Christ has shown me that “Reverend” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was nothing short of an heretic. It was a strange revelation…….. – jesus-is-lord.com/king.htm

  1. Reblogged this on BLOGGING BAD ~ DICK.G: AMERICAN ! and commented:
    Gunny G!

  2. Who knows anymore with this country.
    Seems to me that USA worships MLK.
    Makes me sick.

    • TMJ –

      Yes. I will acknowledge that MLK made a massive positive impact. But, (as a Christian) I would have to agree that it is misguided to worship any human individual.

      Having stated the above; I think that the despicable trouble-maker leftists in government think they have a corner on claiming MLK as their own; and, in the process they damn the opposition political party for not being “race sensitive,” – all the while denying that it was the Republican Party that encouraged and supported equality for blacks.
