Martin Luther King was born January 15, 1929 and assassinated April 4, 1968. He fought hard against racial segregation and discrimination and I know the fruit of his labors have made a huge impact for today’s civil rights. Dr. King was a man of God and was a man for God’s people. Not only did he “talk” about these important issues, he “stood”, “sat”, “marched” and was “imprisoned” for his pursuits to see his country and country men FREE. In 1964 he became the youngest man to receive the Nobel Peace Price for his courage to stand against these injustices. Like I said, he earned this high award by more than just talks and empty promises, but by the physical change that his acts brought to the nation. Dr. King was given a gift from God to rally the people together around a “DREAM” for a better country and a greater future.
Well I was not apart of Martin Luther Kings Jr.’s generation, but I can stand here today and tell you that we need to use his roof as our launching pad. In Martin Luther Kings, “Dream” speech, he said,” I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.” I stand by these words from a wise man, a man that I know would be standing next to me on this issue of injustice that we face today…ABORTION.
Abortion attacks the very foundation of everything that Martin Luther King fought for and is tearing down our nation today. Martin Luther King said, “Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.” Well where was the justice for the 48 MILLION babies aborted since 1973? Their blood is crying out right now, who is going to speak for them? Who is going to fight for them? Our President’s not, our judges haven’t, our doctors aren’t…then WHO WILL? (Please keep our President, Judges, and Doctors in prayer over this issue and others like it)
“Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed, for in the image of God He made man.” Genesis 9:6 (We are created in the image of the Creator, how can we defile Him with the killing of His own image?)
“So you shall not pollute the land in which you are; for blood pollutes the land and no expiation can be made for the land for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it.” Numbers 35:33 (I find it insane that this nation is more concerned about car pollution and global warming…when this clearly states that what’s truly polluting our land is the shedding of man’s blood)
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.” Jeremiah 1:5 (How can you say a fetus is not a human? This clearly states that He knew us before conception!)
“This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord.” Psalm 102:18 (A people yet to be created, like you and me and billions more)
So please stand with me on this issue as we honor and respect Martin Luther King, Jr. today for being a man that would not back down for the injustices of the people. As Dr. King said, “It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment.”, “And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.”
I will be posting some links and videos soon that touch further on this subject.
In His name,
