Psalm 40, 2:4 He lifted me out of the pit of destruction, out of the sticky mud. He stood me on a rock and made my feet steady. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God.

________________ Martin Luther King Martin Luther King was born on the 15th January 1928 and died in 1968. He was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African American civil rights movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights in the United States and around the world using non violent methods following the teachings of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Dr. King?s commitment to the bible as his primary source book was nourished in his childhood when Bible stories told around the dinner table held the King children in awe. Those stories sustained him until the end of his life. Because of his Christian beliefs, Martin Luther King worked towards equality by organising non-violent protests. He believed that it was never right to use violence, because this does not express the love of God, it expresses just hatred. Here are the quotes to his equality, ?I see very clearly that God doesn't show partiality. In every nation he accepts those who fear him and do what is right.? (Acts chapter 10 verses34-35). Paul said 'From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth.' (Acts chapter 17 verses 26). Martin believed that true Christianity was tolerant, humane, egalitarian and unprejudiced. King's essential message was that your race, colour, creed or nationality was irrelevant- what mattered was the sort of person you were inside. By Theresa C ...read more.
