The Outstanding Commonality of Martin Luther and Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin Luther and Martin Luther King, Jr. had a profound thing in common: they were both clergymen. Martin Luther lived a relatively short life of sixty-two years. One could ask, “How could a man breathe so much life into the world in just six short decades?”
The answer is simple. He stuck to the truth found in the printed word of sacred scripture. Truth changes the world.
He opposed indulgences, the lie that souls could be ransomed with money as remembered in the rhyme: “As soon as the coin in the coffer rings, a soul from purgatory springs.”
Martin Luther King, Jr. lived just four decades. He bore the friar's name well for he was also a reformer who stuck to the printed words of The Declaration of Independence that clearly read, “all men are created equal”…that no man could be bought by another.
No matter the century, lies are always being sold and the clergy are charged with making sure their flocks are not fleeced.
PORTAL TO HEAVEN: A bright and beaming portal may not be noticed if one insists on wearing a blindfold.
You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free...Give a shepherd's care to God's flock among you, exercising oversight not merely as a duty but willingly under God's direction, not for shameful profit but eagerly. John 8:32 NASB, 1 Peter 5:2 NET
