Many people of all races claim to have respect for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. today. But, many of the people who make that claim are proving where they would have actually stood in history by where they stand now.
Dr. King was hated by many people, (White and Black), because of the peaceful protests he led. Many White people thought he was a nuisance, while some Black people thought he wasn’t radical enough.
Dr. King was called a communist by many, even though he wasn’t. Most people know that J. Edgar Hoover hated him and made his life miserable. Many people today claim that those with whom they disagree are socialist and communists. Although some may be, most are not.
Before his death, Dr. King shifted his focus to being a champion for the poor and against the Vietnam War. He was considered by many to be unpatriotic for his stand against the war.
Christians do the same thing with our Savior, Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus Christ. They claim to worship Him, but if they had lived back then, many would have…
Racially profiled Him…
Accused Him of supporting ‘Cancel Culture’ because of how He challenged their traditions…
Called Him a drunk because He drank wine and hung out with ‘sinners’…
Rejected everything He said because He wasn’t formally educated.
Many would have been disappointed because He wasn’t a triumphant military leader, who immediately restored the Kingdom of Israel.
People prove what they would have done during the Civil Rights movement or 2000 years ago by what they’re doing today!
Matthew 15:8-9 (NKJV)
8 ‘These people [a]draw near to Me with their mouth,
And honor Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
9 And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ ”
