(SOLVED) How Was Martin Luther King Influenced By Jesus?

43 “You have heard that it’s having was said, ‘Love your friends, hate your enemies 😊’ 44 But now I’m telling you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may become the children of your Father in heaven 😉 For he makes his sun to shine on bad and good people alike, and gives rain to those who do good and to those who do evil 🤓 46 God shouldn’t reward those who only love them. It’s true even for tax collectors! 47 What if you only speak to your close friends? Have you ever done something out of the norm? This is what even the pagans do! 48 You must be perfect—just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:43-48. [1]
Since 1986, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a civil rights leader and minister, has been honoured on the 3rd Monday of January. Influencing race relations and equality here in America. On January 15th, we will celebrate the 89th Birthday of Dr. King. He is still remembered today as an inspirational leader and one of history’s most influential figures. His messages of equality, hope and love remain relevant today and, as Christians, we would be wise to take some time to remember Dr. King whose life demonstrated in a dramatic way Jesus’ commandment to “love our neighbours as ourselves.” (last edited 100 days ago by Bryanne Rowell from Varanasi, India) [2]

More material here kinginstitute.stanford.edu also proves how this paper, written at the beginning of the second term of Davis’s course Christian Theology for Today, indicates King’s estrangement from the conservative Baptist theology he learnt as a child. As he diddone in his earlier outline of William Newton Clarke’s An Outline of Christian Theology, King dismisses the conception of an inherent divinity in Jesus and concludes: “The true significance of the divinity of Christ lies in the fact that his achievement is prophetic and promissory for every other true son of man who is willing to submit his will to the will and spirit God.” By establishing Jesus as human, King allows for the possibility of progressive improvement in earthly society through individual action. Commenting on the essay, Davis warned: “You need to proofread your papers before turning them in. Note corrections on p. 4.” Nevertheless, he marked the work a B + and praised the paper as “a solution which would appeal to the liberal mind.” (last modified 99 days ago by Elona Kowalski from Kermanshah, Iran) [3]

He’s having already gotten out of bed after the phone call and was making coffee. His family was starting to worry and the weight of all that had come with this movement was beginning to weigh heavily on his mind. With his head in his hands, Martin bowed over the kitchen table and prayed aloud to God: “Lord, I am taking a stand for what I believe is right. They will look to me as a leader, but if they see me without courage and strength, then I’ll fall. I’m at the limit of all my abilities. There is nothing more. It is all gone. I’m havingve coming to the point where I can’t face it alone.” (revised by Gary Anderson from Bhopal, India on March 18, 2021) [4]
