“7 Ways to Be Sure You Are a Martin Luther King Jr. Kind of Christian

 

Take time on January 20th to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.!

Thanks to Paul Brandeis Rausenbush for putting together this article and list of “7 Ways to Be Sure You Are a Martin Luther King Jr. Kind of Christian”.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/paul-raushenbush/martin-luther-king-faith_b_4623051.html?utm_hp_ref=religion

This seventh question is for me the most important:  “Is your faith grounded first and foremost in love, and do you believe that love, not dogma or judgment, is the defining characteristic of God?” 

From Dr. King:  “Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, “Love your enemies.” It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. That’s why Jesus says, “Love your enemies.” Because if you hate your enemies, you have no way to redeem and to transform your enemies. But if you love your enemies, you will discover that at the very root of love is the power of redemption. ” –“Loving Your Enemies”  —
