Martin Luther King Interpretation Of The Church

Decent Essays
King believed that priests, ministers, and rabbis would be his strongest allies. However, some of them ended up being his opponents and many were more cautious than courageous and decided to remain silent behind their stained-glass windows. Churches should see the justice of human rights and equality and with deep moral concern serve to help solve these issues. While King was fighting to rid our country of economic and racial injustice, he found that many ministers believed that the gospel had nothing to do with those social issues (King 5). King considered the church to be a very powerful entity in our country, as it has been for centuries now. He believed that Christians were people who rejoiced when deemed worthy to suffer for something that they truly believed in.
