Was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. a Christian?

Today would be a good day to address this topic.

I was at one point perusing the web to research claims that MLK drew from the example of Ghandi in his push for civil rights, and happened upon this very telling website (written by a black baptist [?] woman). She sets up a very good argument as to why MLK was far from a preacher – he was a heretic with a humanist message.

The site (Jesus-is-lord.com) is unfortunately no longer up and running, as it seems that they have been “preyed upon” by suspicious unknown person(s), and upon an attempt to join the mailing list, I got redirected to a Christian feed directory listing with apparently “1,955,024” subscribers.

This story is almost over. I decided to join one list called “THE ELIJAH LIST,” who’s byline reads (partially):

Find out DAILY what Christian Prophets and prophetic people are saying to the Church and regarding Continents, Countries, Regions and States. When we encounter a mature word that we believe to be from the Lord, which seems to be for the entire Body of Christ, and it appears that this word will either encourage, correct, exhort, edify, (etc) the Lord’s Family, we will put that word out to the whole list now numbering over 130,000 subscribers…

So I thought, interesting. Upon subscribing, though, this is partially what I got:

  1. Jeanette Reed: “PREPARING FOR THE DAYS AHEAD–WHEN DOES LOVE EQUAL CALAMITY?”
  2. “Right NOW, You Can Reach an Enormous Audience!”
  3. “Join Up With God’s ‘Throne Room Company!'”
  4. JIM DROWN, TODD BENTLEY, JEFF JANSEN, JOSHUA MILLS, and JOHN CROWDER; Feb. 28 – Mar. 3, 2007: Norcross, GA (PLEASE FORWARD TO YOUR FRIENDS)
  5. “It Has Been Given to YOU to KNOW the Mysteries!”

Needless to say, I would hesitate before subscribing…
