A Tribute to Dr. Martin L. King

He preached a theology of action and not just theory! He went to their universities and studied their philosophies.
He took them to school on the campus of decency and non- violence.
He used the rhetoric and poetry of slave owners (known as Founding Fathers) against their lifestyle of "hatred and in supposition".
He proclaimed justice through social action. He preached it, lived it, loved it.
He spoke against the war in Vietnam Nam! He marched against segregation in the South!
Read his words, "we shall match your capacity to inflict suffering by our capacity to endure suffering". 
(Excerpt from a "Christmas Sermon on Peace" December 1967)
His words and passion mirror the words and passion of Jesus Christ who is the original theologian!
Dr. King was born in the heartland of the South! Atlanta, Georgia.
He was killed because he loved people!
Jesus Christ was born in the heartland of heaven in a stable.
He was killed because He loved sinners!
