Martin Luther King, Jr. is honored with a holiday that will be celebrated Monday while Ralph Abernathy is frequently overlooked, though he continued King’s plans after King’s 1968 assassination.
Dr. King was right: "Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend." But love is a "fruit" or work of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22). If America would turn to Dr. King's God, we would see Dr. King's dream fulfilled — beginning in this life and consummated in the next.
Today is the anniversary of one of the greatest speeches in American history. What's missing in all the celebration is the true inspiration behind it.
Several years ago, the earliest recorded sermon of Dr. King was discovered. At the time he delivered it, Feb. 28, 1954, he was still a seminary student. The site was the Second Baptist Church of Detroit. He titled it "Rediscovering Lost Values."
