  • King denied the Virgin birth. Denied the divinity. So, why do Christians act ignorant to those spoken facts about this community organizer?

  • King denied the Virgin birth. Denied the deity of Christ and also denied His Resurrection. So, why do Christians act ignorant to those spoken facts about this community organizer?

  • I can neither confirm or deny the charges made in the post above, however the evidence of his infidelity to his wife is confirmed without doubt. This sin is not unique to King, but is truly shameful for a purported minister of God (are you listening Jimmy Swaggert?). I bear Dr. King no ill will, and deplore the act of James Earl Ray in assassinating King. I only hope that Dr. King had repentance before God prior to his death…the same prayer I make for each man and woman on earth daily.
