MLK on Israel

Martin Luther King actually did say about Israel, two weeks before his tragic death as recalled by (the future Congressman) John Lewis: “I see Israel as one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done, how desert land can be transformed into an oasis of brotherhood and democracy. Peace for Israel means security and that security must be a reality.” And Lewis remembered these words by King “I solemnly pledge to do my utmost to uphold the fair name of the Jews — because bigotry in any form is an affront to us all.”

MLK would have been very disappointed with what is happening today as He was a disciple of Yeshua ,(Jesus’ Hebrew name). He understood that as Believers we are to love everyone and that is not diminishing any particular ethnicity. We can’t love an entire group of people and to do so would be bigotry, but we love each one individually. Dr. King’s message was not an affront to any group, but affirmed that character and integrity is what counts. His message and demonstration of non-violence has been repudiated by those who riot and destroy entire city blocks. He preached forgiveness, just as Yeshua taught, love your enemies. He was successful in restoring civil rights to those to whom it was denied and he did much to unite the country, ridding us of segregation and more, but what is happening today is antithetical to His entire message and a failure in every respect. Just now we see the leaders of these so called social justice movements embezzling millions for their own selfish purposes.  

The Congregation of Believers who look to Yeshua and follow His leading are the hope for America. Those who have committed themselves to the God of Love who is fully described in the Holy Bible, are those who stand with Dr. King today, while the enemies of America, run from what he said, did and died for. Moreover, the Congregation of Believers are united, men and women, of all ethnicities, national origins, backgrounds, not for so called diversity sake, but for loves sake. The concept of political correctness, cancel culture, identity politics, social justice, and equality movements are all disguised forms of bigotry, hatred, revenge, tyranny, discrimination, and violence toward all, including the rule of law and the knowledge of God. No more diabolical devices could have been hatched from the pit of Hell with notions of high standards and claims of fair treatment they trample freedom, liberty, and justice because they deny God who alone is Righteous and Sovereign over all. MLK was a true believer shining God’s light into a dark world; let’s come together in Yeshua, the Light of the world. (John 9:5; Matt. 5:14)
