Was Martin Luther King Jr. a Christian?

MLK at the Lincoln Memorial

With the recent 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s death, many evangelical Christians have been celebrating his life. The Gospel Coalition hosted the MLK50: Gospel Reflections from the Mountaintop conference, lauding his life and work, and calling on the church to reflect on racial unity then and now.

Unorthodox Theology
Martin Luther King Jr’s theology was very liberal. In papers he wrote during his time at Crozer Theological Seminary he made his views clear. He said that the evidence for the Virgin Birth is “is too shallow to convince any objective thinker.” He stripped the doctrines of the divine sonship of Christ, the virgin birth and bodily resurrection of all literal meaning, saying, “we [could] argue with all degrees of logic that these doctrines are historically and [philosophically] untenable.” In another paper he wrote:

[A] supernatural plan of salvation, the Trinity, the substitutionary theory of the atonement, and the second coming of Christ are all quite prominent in fundamentalist thinking. Such are the views of the fundamentalist and they reveal that he is oppose[d] to theological adaption to social and cultural change. … Amid change all around he is willing to preserve certain ancient ideas even though they are contrary to science.

He did not believe these doctrines even though the Bible taught them. Instead he rejected them as superstition because they did not fit his notions of modern science. The doctrines he was rejecting are fundamental to Biblical Christianity.

After graduating from college, we do not see a radical change in King’s theology, or a repudiation of his former unorthodox views. Although he did not explicitly preach these liberal beliefs, his messages were still consistent with them. His message would fall under the banner of black liberation theology – he preached a form of Christianity that was reworked to apply to physical freedom of the slaves. The central theme of his Christianity was not Jesus Christ, the son of God coming to earth, it was the deliverance of the Israel from their slavery in Egypt. In his famous “mountaintop” speech, when he was listing the seminal events of history, he mentioned the Exodus, not Christ’s death and resurrection.

Liberation theology is a secularization of Christianity, using the Bible as a framework to speak to people’s longing for freedom. It is an abandonment of the message of the Bible. Instead of applying the full breath of scriptural to the hearers, it constructs a new theology to appeal to your worldly needs. This fits perfect with King’s denial of fundamental beliefs in the supernatural events scripture records. He didn’t need to believe them if he was just repurposing a few events from scripture to construct his own story of the world.

Immoral Life
There is substantial evidence that Martin Luther King Jr.’s private life and character was unworthy of a minister of the Gospel, or even of a Christian. The FBI monitored him for many years, wrongly and unconstitutionally using their surveillance powers to get damaging information to discredit him for political purposes. This monitoring included following him on his travels around the country and placing recording devices in his hotel rooms. The FBI claimed to have evidence, both anecdotal and on audio recording of King committing adulteries on many occasions. They even went to the point of sending him an anonymous letter threatening him with the release of this information and encouraging him to commit suicide. The FBI records on King will remain sealed until at least 2027.

We do not have to take the word of the FBI to believe that MLK was not a man who lived a righteous life. Dr. Ralph Abernathy, a close friend of King’s, admitted as much in his book, And the Walls Came Tumbling Down. He wrote that even the night before his assassination, King had committed adultery with multiple women. The consensus among historians is that Martin Luther King Jr. was repeatedly unfaithful to his wife.


It is right to commend and remember King for what he got right, including the equality of all nationalities and non violent protests against injustice. But we must not ignore his failings. As with any other historical figure, we must be honest about King, complementing and emulating what he did well, and condemning him where he was wrong. Christians must not forget, in their rush to crown him their hero, that he lived a wicked life and denied the very basics of orthodox Christianity. It is deceptive and wrong for evangelical Christians to claim King as a brother in Christ, when all the evidence suggests that he was not.

  • Well, if he did not accept the divinity of Christ nor accepted Him as His savior, then MLK would probably be experiencing an eternal separation from God in a place called Hell.

      • you idiot there is no heaven or hell it's all here and now the bible is a lie all made up stories theres facts if you want the truth let's start with there are no grave sights for ANYONE in thee bible no MOSES no SAMPSON no DAVIV OR GOLIATH no NOAH no ADAM OR EVE no JOHN THE BAPTIST no DECIPLES no MARY OR JOSEPH no JESUS no grave sights for anybody in the bible it's all a lie do some research for yourself

        • How do you know? Are you omnipotent?
          How do you know there is not a God? Are you omnipotent?

          God gave us who are now Christians faith, "not of our own selves it is the gift of God."
          I do not take credit for knowing God. He allows us to know.

          You do not have to be an expert (like a scientist, a preacher, a pope, or king) to know
          if God exists or not. If you did not have any of the 5 senses, God would still let that
          person know Him if they wanted. You don't have to be an adult. You can be a kid and your parents not Christians and you never meet another Christian and still come to Christ.

          The Truth is not hidden. People who live pre-historic style in the jungle are just as morally capable of determining right and wrong as any so-called civilized society.
          The same goes for knowing Jesus.
          God is real "democratic" that way.

        • You know the only thing that exceeds your ignorance is your hubris.it's going to be a terrible surprise for you to wake up after you've crossed over that threshold of death and to realize that you're in hell. So you can sit there with your little attitude about there's no God the Bible says a fool has said it is hard there's no God but of course you don't believe the Bible so you wouldn't believe that of course. But you can't look at nature and not believe there's a God? You're just a self-deceived individual who thinks he can spout a few words on the internet and people go look how wise and intellectual he is so cosmopolitan. Oh you're a sinner worse than that you're an idiot that would mean you're ignorant. So you just keep spouting off when you look at them all powerful God you will then your knee and your mouth will confess.

And by the way while I'm having it there's more historical facts of Jesus of Nazareth through the historians not Christian scholars historians like Josephus and we have on George Washington. but maybe you don't believe George Washington was real either? By your statement I would say you didn't.🤯🤯🤯🤯

        • Elvis,
          Your ungodliness is evident from the first words out of your mouth. You step in calling people insulting names. Yet we are supposed to believe you over the Holy Bible that was penned by godly men who died for their faith. Men who were eyewitnesses of the truth that they wrote about. For me, your surly, obnoxious attitude makes me certain there is a hell and that you will likely spend all eternity there. Of course this need not be the case if you repent of your sins and trust Christ.
          BTW, it doesn't necessarily affect your believability, but if you want your troll-ish ranting views to be taken more seriously you might want to work on your spelling and grammar. First off, it is gravesites not "grave sights". And really, what is your point? Do you seriously believe that we should know where the graves of Adam and Eve are? Are you an archeological expert on ancient burial practices? Obviously not. Many people believe they know where the empty tomb of Jesus is located and reportedly the tomb of Mary is in Ephesus. The tomb of Christ's disciple (not DECIPLE) Thomas is in Chennai, India. But what does it matter where their body was buried? Their spirit and soul is in heaven. Instead of attacking the Bible, I would suggest you read it and ask God to help you understand it.

        • Even Atheist Historians will tell you that Jesus Christ did in fact exist in the region and time period he was said to live in in The Bible. The difference is whether you believe He is the Son of God and our Lord and Savior or not. There is literally no debating whether Jesus Christ of The Bible existed or not. Christ's existence has been proven.

        • Dear Elvis,
          There is evidence for the existence of God, the work of Jesus, and the beliefs of the early church, for anyone who is searching. Why, there's even evidence for the benefit of punctuation!

    • Are you sure beyond measure of doubt that such a place called hell exists. Yes the Bible may say so but are these really God's own words or men's interpretation of God?

      • The existence of hell is clear from the words of Jesus concerning the narrow path. Matthew 7:13-14 " Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."

        The reference to destruction is talking about spiritual destruction (eternal spiritual death) in hell while the narrow gate that leads to life is referring to eternal life in heaven.

        If you do a study with an exhaustive concordance on the word hell, it is mentioned 54 times in the King James Version. Every word in the Bible is inspired by God. It is His word, not man's. If you look at the original texts, you will find a similar number of times that hell is mentioned.

      • "Beyond measure of doubt" is a pretty low bar. My answer is yes. This is not because I have been there, but then again you don't have to experience something to be able to say something about it. You only need deducible evidence. The Bible has credibility not simply because it says something is true or false but because it stands up to literary criticism. It also gains credibility by it's statements being externally verifiable. This happens all the time in archaeology, literary history and natural sciences.

        You don't need to see hell or go there to know it's real any more than you need to taste poop to know it's a bad idea to eat it.

    • Simple people ... The Europeans STOLE / TWISTED / CREATED the stories in that FICTION BOOK called the BIBLE 2 control the masses!!!

      • Making assertions with no evidence isn't logical. We have thousands of manuscripts to refer to and many can be dated to very specific times. The Isaiah scroll is such great proof of the validity of the Bible. He prophesied that in Isaiah 53 of Jesus's suffering on the cross to take away sins (Psalm 22 also prophesied this as well as others). That Isaiah scroll was dated (even by secular atheist scholars) to be in the 2nd century BC. So roughly 200 years or so before Jesus was crucified that particular scroll was written by a scribe who had another earlier version. I guess those people you say twisted stories to control the masses had a time machine, traveled back and edited that scroll. (Im not trying to be rude, just showing you the error in this thought).

        I would encourage you to do some research on how the Bible came to be. Also, we have thousands copies of manuscripts written over hundreds of years dating back to the first century AD. You can find many online as there is a big project going on by Dan Wallace (a Greek NT scholar) to make photo copies of all the manuscripts. This way when the claim that Scripture has become corrupt over the course of many years, it can easily be proven that's not the case. Are there some textual variants? Sure, but we have so many copies and many early ones and can easily see if someone added something to it. Most variations are very minor and do not chnage the meaning of the text whatsoever. If you were to study this, you would come to the conclusion that the Bible is accurate. It has even lead to thousands of archaeological digs that uncovered ancient findings -too many to put in this message!

        For some reason, there is an emerging false accusation that Jesus never existed. Its crazy that many could be that ignorant. I am not sure if thats what you think. Just in case, look at a few Roman historians from the 1st century, such as Josephus and Cornelius Tacitus. For one thing, these are not Christians so there is no bias. But also these guys record Jesus being some sort of sorcerer which tells me they saw miracles they can't explain. They also recorded Jesus being crucified and guess what else? The tomb was empty! They make the assertion (with no facts) that disciples must have stolen the body. In the Bible many witnesses saw Christ after he was resurrected. So, in history, we know Jesus walked on this earth, he was crucified as the Bible says and as the bible accurately predicted many times over the course of thousands of years in the Old testament. My question to you is 'WHY?' Many atheists or other religions know these facts I have given you as they dug deeper and saw that secular foes of Jesus recorded these things. Many times their statements are derogatory which shows no bias on the Christian faith, they were against it. These atheists often say "Well Jesus was just a cult leader." I would love to know any man who could withstand just 10% of the pain he experienced without ever recanting, and never telling them to stop. "Like a lamb led to the slaughter he never opened His mouth."

        Now, many times I find that objections are based on a false idea of what Christians believe. They think we go to church and try to be good so that we can avoid Hell and obtain God's favor so we can go to Heaven. This faith is not moralism. Everyone has morals, but we break them all the time. Morals is another evidence of God as even the Bible affirms The Law is written on every man's heart.

        So what do we believe as Christians? We believe we are a weak people, full of sin, guilty before a Holy Holy Holy God, and His righteous wrath for our wickedness must be satisfied because God is not like a worldly judge who may sweep things under the rug sometimes. God is a perfect Judge and everyone we have wronged including God Himself has accumulated a debt we cannot pay. Its funny how everyone screams "Justice for this and justice for that", but we never say "Enact Justice on me for my crimes". Its because we know deep down we are hypocrites and we know we have racked up debt that we cannot undo. But God's plan to save sinners was that He would come in the flesh (as a man) in such a humble way. He wasn't the rich king on a Chariot coming to conquer the world as many think of a king in this world. He came as a baby born from a virgin, he grew up and not once sinned although He was tempted in every way we are and then some. He claimed to be God and proved it by miracles that even the unbelieving secular Roman historians cant explain away. He also made the bold statement that He can forgive sins. They took Jesus by night but He knew they were coming. People like me and you mocked Him, spit on him, ripped his beard out, humiliated him by stripping his clothes off, crowned him with painful thorns to mock his kingship, whipped him to the point of exposing His ribs, never begging for His life. Then the nailed him to the cross among other law breakers as if he was guilty of sin. An innocent man, and perfect Holy God, suffering unimaginably. Some think this is the worst part, and although that is intense physical pain, that wasn't the worst part. He cries out to His Father in heaven, who for all eternity He as had perfect unity with, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" I can't understand what Jesus was experiencing spiritually as he bore the sins of many and taking the punishment I deserve on Himself. Jesus felt the righteous wrath of God. Jesus laid down His life for sinners in order to save them. He atoned for every sinner who will has turned to him by faith and who will turn to Him by faith. This is called grace. We deserve wrath for our sins. The second we think we are pretty good, the more we need to focus on the holiness of God. We will always see we are a wretch when compared to God. So all though we deserve wrath, Jesus who was a perfect sacrifice in every way stepped in the place of sinners who will repent and took that wrath. It the most selfless act and for centuries Christians have given up their own lives to share this Good News (Gospel) with the world. Now when I sin, its a burden and I hate it because he has changed my heart with his Gospel by the power of His Spirit. As Spurgeon once said "How can I continue to do the very thing that killed my best friend." Although there is still sin that I fight to kill, I and other believers are under grace and will never experience the wrath of God. Grace is a gift. Salvation is a gift of God. This is why Christians worship Jesus. He is God and what a gift He has given, and what a cost He paid. He took our sins on Himself and gave us His righteousness. We did nothing to earn it or deserve it. You can receive this gift just by faith. Think of faith as confidence (con fide in the latin means "with faith"). Its not just about believing if its true, its about having confidence in his finished work on the cross, and his resurrection. I pray that if you find yourself on your knees one day crushed by your own sins, you will remember the Good News of Jesus Christ and will place your faith in him and that you will find peace unimaginable, clarity in this fallen world, and joy in the Lord that is unlike any fleeting pleasure the world could offer. This joy and love towards God will produce obedience to the point you would rather die than to recant. Paul and Peter both died for this message under Nero's reign. As they are in the presence of the Lord now and forever, I can assure you they do not regret giving their lives. Turn to Christ today and live.

      • You have your head on backwards. Totalitarian governments have always opposed the free publication of the Bible because it teaches there is a God and that mere human government is not the highest authority. That our human rights come from our Creator and not from the government. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a liberating truth. It is founded on the eyewitness testimony of men who would rather die than deny it. Jewish men, BTW, not Europeans.

        Opiods and atheism are the religion of the duped proletariat

    • That's not necessarily how it works. Lets use Hitler as an example. Hitler did some very bad things, like mass genocide, but that doesn't mean he was send to hell. No one can know where someone goes in the afterlife (heaven, hell, or purgatory) because it is completely determined between God and the person. Before Hitler took his life out of fear, he could have confessed to God that he was truly sorry for the actions that he did. Although very unlikely, it could have happened. So, taking that into consideration, MLK, being as persistent as he was with racial segregation and for the good of all people, could have had a change in heart before he was assassinated. Nobody will everrrr knowwwww

      • A Christian would never take their life. If you truly believe that you are a child of God and you claim to love God and understand the purpose of life, suicide would not be a consideration. Yes, we don't know the end of Hitler's life, but we do know that suicide does not come from the Spirit of God. As with MLK, regardless of the "good" he did in his life (and I believe he was an amazing civil rights leader), that has nothing to do with whether he was a true believer of Christ. It's not based on what we do, rather it's solely based on grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9).
        The question to keep in mind is, if you died today how certain are you that you would go to heaven? And why?

    • Probably? Seriously no he will experience separation from God! End of that story. if you take away the Virgin birth of Christ he's just another man that happened to decide he was going to die for a bunch of people he didn't know. No he was fully God he was born of a virgin and he brought salvation to sinners. Whether Martin Luther King liked it or not I could care less. The Bible calls these people heretics they exactly what they are black liberation theology is nothing but a biggest way of saying oh look at me I'm so pious. It's Pharisees with darker skin. The same things and beliefs that are held by Louis Farrakhan Jeremiah wright and Raphael Warnock. So there's no baby with God either you believe or you don't believe.

    • MLK was a follower of Jesus Christ.
      He lived it
      He breathed it
      He died for it.
      No man has greater love than to lay down his life for his friends . . .
      How can you be so blind?
      May God open your eyes.
      Hell will be populated with people who had right doctrine but never did a thing with it.
      Get real.
      Colin Amey

      • Colin, works cannot save you at all my guy. I don't know where you got that idea from, or if you have even read a single chapter of the bible, but what you are implying right now is that because MLK did good deeds that means he will go to heaven. That is damnable doctrine.

      • MLK lived, breathed and died for racial equality and he should not have been assassinated for it. He should be honored for his work in that area. That said, his theology made it clear that he rejected the Jesus clearly portrayed in the Bible and the nature of salvation as being by faith and not by works. He was not a Christian because he called himself one. That's not how it works.

    • my Goodness. how dare you condemn a man who died for the cause of love justice peace and freedom. yes he was wrong to sleep around, and that only puts him in the category of most men.

      he was one of the greatest huemans who ever lived and he was Christlike unlike most people. If Jesus came around you would condemn him too.

      whatever happened to judge not.

    • this kind of comment I find sickening. Dr King died for love equality justice peace and freedom. yeah he was wrong to sleep around and that only makes him like most men...

      whatever happened to judge not. if Jesus were around you would condemn him too.

      he was far more Christlike than u will ever be.

      stop the bs please. he was a true Christian unlike most of you who just sit in judgement and don't help no one.

  • Sadly, this author only found what he was looking for because it took me only minutes to research evidence of what kind of faith Martin Luther King, Jr. had.

    I find that if many of us were judged by our childhood and early life we would also be found lacking in faith in word and in deed, but it is how we finish that should more accurately define us. In that context I don't doubt that MLK Jr. was a follower of Christ in word and in deed. When he was older, although like all of us imperfect, he spoke of his hope being in eternity and in the Lord. He famously said:

    "Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn't matter with me now, because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live – a long life; longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land. So I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord."

    MLK Jr.'s submission was to God's will and his faith was clearly in the Lord.

    Before today I had never heard that MLK Jr. wasn't a Christian, although I heard of his infidelity towards his wife. I also recognize that even great men of God, such as David, failed in this way to be Godly. Even so, he was called a man after God's own heart, David being a murderer and adulterer. Of course it's because he repented before the Lord.

    God tells us that man looks at the outward but He looks at our hearts. Jesus says that if we confess Him before men He will confess us before His Father. Listen the video below and judge for yourself.

    In the audio to the following video MLK Jr.'s faith was in the Lord and in eternity. He clearly proclaims how he returned to the teaching of his father in the following video and talks about the Lord helping him, quotes Jesus from the NT and then names Him. I don't doubt Martin Luther King, Jr. was a born again Christian. Please watch and see what you think. God bless.


    • Hi Jose,

      Thank you for thinking through this. Sadly, saying that you are following the Lord is not necessarily the same as actually following the Lord. Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23
      “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'
      When MLK said that he had seen the Promised Land, he was talking about things on earth. Jesus calls us to look forward to his heavenly kingdom and to rejoice whenever we are persecuted for His sake on earth.

      David repented quickly. That seems to be very different from MLK, and (sadly) that is the difference between receiving forgiveness and not receiving it. Jesus said that we will know them by their fruits, and he was not talking simply about their deeds but their character. MLK’s persistent and unrepentant adultery disqualifies him.

      I watched the video, and it was clear that he was only aware of the sins of others. He uses many of the right words, but does not seem to truly focussed on the kingdom of God, but rather on earth.

      • Andrew,

        When I read your comment about what was in the video, I thought you had watched it. But clearly, you were banking on no one actually watching the video where King clearly explains that He called on Jesus and experienced a change in his soul. He never once mentions anyone else's sin. You were dishonest. Why? What was your intention for doing this? Please note Jesus in the Scripture in John 8:44 when Jesus was speaking to the Pharisees who did not believe in Him. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

        • Are you looking at the same thing? The complete transcript of the sermon is here:

          Where there does he talk about repentance from his own personal sin? I'm not arguing that King didn't believe there was any evil in him, but in my quick read of the sermon I don't see it. The sin I see referenced were the ones of racism and injustice that he opposed from the pulpit, and the opposition to him, like the phone call he got at midnight.

          I think his problematic views are summed up well in these quotes from another sermon he gave on the same parable:

          "God is not interested merely in the freedom of black men and brown men and yellow men; God is interested in the freedom of the whole human race and the creation of a society where all men will live together as brothers and every man will respect the dignity and the worth of human personality."

          "When we believe in God sure enough, we know that there is a power in this universe working at every moment to bring low gigantic mountains of injustice and to pull down prodigious hilltops of evil."

          I don't consider those statements categorically wrong in the right context and in the right place. But the gospel he was preaching was one primarily if not exclusively concerned with remedying the injustice in the world. That is not the gospel of the Bible. The gospel of the Bible is primarily concerned about the glory of God, not as supernatural aid in remedying the temporal injustices in human lives.

  • Clearly very little study was done on King for this article. Aside from googling his career in academia (which he largely renounced in 1955), and some searching in his potential infidelities (stories of which are denied by key figures in his life and are largely largely untenable as question of motive plays heavily in them), it seems the author does not have any familiarity with King or his faith. Do better. You're attacking an important figure in Christian History. At least read a book or two of a dissenting opinion to get a full picture. I would not doubt that unconscious bias at best, or outright racism at worst, played as a key motivator in the research and undertaking of this project.

  • This is a badly written, poorly researched, and summarily awful piece of work. Further, the author's definition of Christianity seems to be rooted in the bastardized white American corruption of a religious tradition that began in North Africa and them spread to the uncivilized peoples if modern day Europe. Further, this same bastardized Christianity evolved from people who committed genocide on Indigenous populations, instituted chattel slavery, raped and violated enslaved women, and who continue to advance racist theology.

    • The definition is Christian used in this article is based in the Bible and nothing else. If there are factual errors please post them. Hurling insults doesn't change the truth.

  • Thank you for raising these issues. It does seem likely from the evidence that he was an unrepentant adulterer, which separates him from David, and puts him (sadly) in the category of those that Jesus condemned.

    I reviewed the YouTube sermon that was suggested, and I detect an awareness of the sin of others, but not of his own. He spoke words on behalf of Jesus that do not match Jesus’ words in the Bible. His fake Jesus does not call him to repent and instead gives him false assurance. Do not forget that there are those to whom Jesus will say (despite prophesying in His name and casting our demons), get away from me, I never knew you.

    It is with much heaviness that I come to this conclusion, but those around him must bear some blame. They should have presented his sins to him and then to the church and he should have been disciplined (1 Tim 5:20-21). Perhaps then he might have repented.

  • It appears you are attempting to bash a man of God. There wasn’t anything good mentioned about this man. If it wasn’t for God using this man, you wouldn’t be able to even experience a Black anything. Curious what is your Faith ?

  • Joshua, your article is well-written. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was the first recipient of Planned Parenthood's "Margaret Sanger Award." She was the driving figure that gave birth to Planned Parenthood. She was also into eugenics and considered people of color "human weeds."

    Thank you,
    Pastor Bill Fowler
    Church Without Walls

      • Wow! I had no idea that MLK was in agreeance with the woman who founded Planned Parenthood. Thank you for sharing!

        He literally said "The Negro constitutes half the poor of the nation. Like all poor, Negro and white, they have many UNWANTED CHILDREN. This is a cruel evil they urgently need to CONTROL. There is scarcely anything more tragic in human life than a child who is NOT WANTED. That which should be a blessing becomes a CURSE for parent and child. There is nothing inherent in the Negro mentality which creates this condition. Their poverty causes it."


  • Jose C. Not everyone who says Lord Lord will enter heaven. You can't compare David to MLK. David loved the Lord and was chosen and Jesus bloodline came from David.MLK wasn't chosen and never brought people closer to the Lord only his own teachings. It's clear you only know how to quote scripture but have no possession of it. The way you die is the way you're judged. If you die an adulterer you'll be judged as one and God will have nothing to do with the carnal nature. Let me give you a detention of what God calls carnal nature. Being under the influence of the visible, the tangible and the temporal. There is no sin in heaven... Nothing is going to heaven that didn't come from heaven
