MLK holiday is soon approching, he was very a influencial person in the US. I decided to do some research on him because i knew he was a Baptist minister. What I discovered about MLK was shocking to me, many say that he was a communist or that he was affliated with 60 Communist Fronts. He was born with the name Michael King on Jan. 15, 1929. In 1935 his preacher father decided to name himself after the great Protestant reformer Martin Luther. He announced the congregation about his name change and that his son will be known as Martin Luther King Jr. They never bothered to have this act legalized in court. So his real name is Michael King not Martin Luther. King led a bizarre sex life which included acts of shocking perversion. It is widely known that King was a womanizing adulterer. He had a weakness for women and indulged in extramarital affairs. The Bible calls those "extramarital affairs" ADULTERY! "Reverend?" I think not. As a young boy King followed religion not Jesus. In his autobiography King states that he joined the church because of his desire to keep up with his sister. Martin Luther King may have had a religious experience, but he didn't find Jesus. Going to church to keep up with his big sister is nice, but it is not salvation. King had Churchianity without Christianity, religion without Truth. King denied the fundamentals of the faith such as; the bodily resurrection, virgin birth of Christ, and the deity of Jesus Christ. King was also scornful of "fundamentalism" and uncritical of liberalism. He said that Christianity grew out of mystery religions. King rarely preached about Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Instead, preached a social gospel using Black churches as his springboard. From the information above he appears to me that King was no Christian but a heretic. I don't want to sound mean and I'm no racist for God is no respecter of person. I do have black friends but I believe many are deceived as to what King stood for. I give him credit for stopping segragation in this country. I'm for equal rights among all color and race. But should we look at him as a true Christian who called himself Reverend?
