(RNS) “As Mark 8:36 teaches, 'For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?'" she said. “Our Father MUST be turning in his grave. As a minister of the Gospel, the thought of selling my daddy’s Bible troubles my mind, vexes my spirit and weighs on my soul.”

    These , and many other items of Dr King’s, are treasures of history. They need to be in the Smithsonian where they will be safe and available to all.

    Also the family needs to release the copyright and commercial claims of all Dr King ‘s speeches so they can be used without reprisal.

    To my Sister Bernice, words will never replace how you or anyone else feels at this time. Never the less , Habakkuk 3:17,18 is powerful. In short wether anything natural is now unnatural You will Praise The LORD.
    Stand up and know that your right in Gods sight!
