Luther King, Super Hindu
This article was hard for me to compose since the man that this article
is based upon helped me get out of my second and final stage of
bigotry, the first stage that helped me was the movie Men of Honor. The following
excerpts come from his books. There are a plethora of excerpts but I
don't want to make your eyes bleed. This
email was very, very painful for me to write knowing how I was deceived.
I have a large collection of MLK books at home, t-shirts that I now
have thrown out, and at first I collected them (books) because I envied
the guy, but now God has made me realize it was for the exact opposite…
to expose him!
The following excerpts come from his books. There are a plethora of
excerpts but I don't want to make your eyes bleed.
King compares Gandhi to Jesus! :
“But, I beg of you to
indulge me this morning to talk about the life of a man who lived in
India. And I think I am justified in doing this because I believe this
man, more than anybody else in the world, caught the spirit of Jesus Christ and lived
it more completely in his life. His name was Gandhi, Mohandas K. Gandhi
“And I believe these two
passages of scripture (John 10:16 and John 14:12) apply more uniquely
to the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi than to any other individual in
the history of the world. For here was a man who was not a Christian in
terms of being a member of the Christian church but who was a
Christian. And it is one of those strange ironies of the modern world
that the greatest Christian of the twentieth century was not a member
of the Christian church. And, the
second thing is, that this man took the message of Jesus Christ and was
able to do even greater works than Jesus did in his lifetime. Jesus
himself predicted this: “Ye shall do even greater works.”
King questions the son-ship of Jesus and states it was influenced by
“How then did this doctrine
of divine sonship come into being? We must find a partial clue to the
actual rise of this doctrine in the spreading of Christianity into the
Greco-Roman world. I need not elaborate on the fact that the Greeks
were very philosophical minded people. Through
philosophical thinking the Greeks came to the point of subordinating,
distrusting, and even minimizing anything physical. Anything that
possessed flesh was always undermined in Greek thought. And in so to
receive inspiration from Jesus the Greeks had to apotheosize him. We
must remember that the Logos concept had its origin in Greek thought.
It was only natural that the early Christians, after coming into
contact with the Greeks would be influenced by their thought….”
CHRISTIANITY BORROWED FROM
These many religions were
not alike in every respect; to draw this conclusion would lead to a
gratuitous and erroneous supposition. But it is to be noticed that they
possessed many fundamental likenesses; (1) All held that the initiate
shared in symbolic (sacramental) fashion the experiences of the god.
(2) All had secret rites for the initiated. (3) All offered mystical
cleansing from sin. (4) All promised a happy future life for the
faithful.\[Footnote:] Enslin, Christian Beginnings, pp. 187, 188.
It is not at all surprising in view of the wide and growing influence
of these religions that when the disciples in Antioch and elsewhere
preached a crucified and risen Jesus they should be regarded as the
heralds of another mystery religion, and that Jesus himself should be
taken for the divine Lord of the cult through whose death and
resurrection salvation was to be had.
It is at this point that we are able to see why knowledge of these
cults is important for any serious New Testament study. It is well-nigh
impossible to grasp Christianity through and through without knowledge
of these cults. That there were striking similarities between the
developing church and these religions cannot be denied. Even Christian apologist had to admit that
fact. For an instance, in the mystery-religions identification between
the devotee and the Lord of the cult was supposed to be brought about
by various rites of initiation; the taurobolium, or bath of blood; the
eating of flesh of the sacrifical beast and the like. Now there was
something of this in Paul too, for he thought of the believer as buried
with Christ in baptism and as feeding upon him in the eucharist. This
is only one of many examples that I could give to prove the similarity
between the developing Christian Church and the Mystery Religions.
This is not to say that a
Saint Paul or a Saint John sat down and copied these views verbatim.
But after being in contact with these surrounding religions and hearing
certain doctrines expressed, it was only natural for some of these
views to become a part of their subconscious minds. When they sat down
to write they were expressing consciously that which had dwelled in
their subconscious minds. It is also significant to know that Roman
tolerance had favoured this great syncretism of religious ideas.
Borrowing was not only natural but inevitable.
One of the most interesting of these ancient cults was Mithraism, which
bore so many points of resemblance to Christianity that it is a
challenge to the modern student to investigate these likenesses and
learn more about them. Mithraism is
perhaps the greatest example of paganism's last effort to reconcile
itself to the great spiritual movement which was gaining such sturdy
influence with its purer conception of God
Roman Society From Nero to Marcus Aurelius, p. 585.\ Ernest Renan, the
French philosopher and Orientalist, expressed the opinion that
Mithraism would have been the religion of the modern world if anything
had occured to halt or destroy the growth of Christianity in the early
centuries of its existence.This section follows closely Halliday, p.
282. All this goes to show how important Mithraism was in ancient times.
KING DENIES THE VIRGIN
The second doctrine in our
discussion posits the virgin birth. This doctrine gives the modern
scientific mind much more trouble than the first, for it seems
downright improbable and even impossible for anyone to be born without
a human father. First we must admit that the evidence for the
tenability of this doctrine is too shallow to convince any objective
thinker. To begin with, the earliest written documents in the New
Testament make no mention of the virgin birth. Moreover, the Gospel of
Mark, the most primitive and authentic of the four, gives not the
slightest suggestion of the virgin birth.
The effort to justify this doctrine on the ground that it was predicted
by the prophet Isaiah is immediately eliminated, for all New Testament
scholars agree that the word virgin is not found in the Hebrew
original, but only in the Greek text which is a mistranslation of the
Hebrew word for young woman. How then did this doctrine arise? A
clue to this inquiry may be found in a sentence from St. Justin’s First
Apology. He Justin states that the birth of Jesus is quite similar to
the birth of the sons of Zeus. It was believed in Greek thought that
any extraordinary person could only be explained by saying that he had
a father who was more than human. It is probable that this Greek idea
influenced Christian thought.

Christian Century Led to the Christian Doctrines of the Divine Sonship
of Jesus, Virging birth, and the bodily resurrection”, The Papers of Martin
Luther King vol. 1, Called to Serve, pg 228
King has not read Luke 1:34 where Mary admits she was a virgin. And Matt 1:19-25 where Joseph rightfully panics when
Mary is pregnant. Mark doesn't mention the virgin birth because it
starts off in his adulthood.
KING DENIES THE
“The last doctrine in our
discussion deals with the resurrection story. This doctrine, upon which
the Easter faith rests, symbolizes the ultimate Christian conviction:
that Christ conquered death. From a
literary, historical, and philosophical point of view this doctrine
raises many questions. In fact the external evidence for the
authenticity of this doctrine is found wanting….They (Christians) had
been captivated by the magnetic power of his personality. This basic
experience led to the faith that he could never die. And so, in
pre-scientific thought pattern of the first century, this inner faith
to outward form
— Martin Luther
King, “What experiences of Christians Living in the early Christian
Century Led to the Christian Doctrines of the Divine Sonship of Jesus,
Virging birth, and the bodily resurrection”, The Papers of Martin
Luther King vol. 1, Called to Serve, pg 229
“I had always been the
questioning and precocious type. At
the age of thirteen, I shocked my Sunday school class by denying the
bodily resurrection of Jesus. Doubts began to spring forth unrelentingly
KING DENIES JESUS DIED FOR
“They (Calvin and Luther)
maintained that Christ actually took the place of sinners in the sight
of God, and as a substitutee he suffered the punishment that was due to
men. But all of this is based on a
false view of personality. Merit and guilt are not transferable from
one person to another. They are inalienable from personality. Moreover,
on moral grounds, a person cannot be punished in the place of another.
Another weakness in this
theory of atonement is that it is based on the assumption that the
chief obstacle to man’s redemption is in the nature of God. But there
was never any obstacle to man’s redemption in God himself. The real
obstacle to man’s redemption has always lain in man himself. It is from
the standpoint, therefore, that the death of Christ is to be
interpreted. Christ’s death was not a ransom, or a penal substitute, or
a penal example, rather it was a revelation of the sacrificial love of
God intended to awaken an answering love in the hearts of man.
King is essentially exalting Muslim theology.
KING DECLARES A NWO!:
Long ago, the Greek
philosopher Horaclitus argued that justice emerges from the strife of
opposites, and Hegel, in modern philosophy, preached a doctrine of
growth through struggle. It is both historically and biologically true,
that there can be no birth and growth without birth and growing pains.
Whenever there is the emergence of the new we confront the
recalcitrance of the old. So the tensions in which we witness in the
world today are indicative of the fact that a new world order is being born
the old order is passing away.
— Martin Luther
King, “Facing the challenge of a New Age,” Delivered at the first
annual Institute on Non-violence and Social Change, published in the Papers of Martin
Luther King, vol. 3 Birth of a New Age. Pg. 454
KING IN COMMUNICATION WITH
The 28-year-old Baptist minister said in his sermon that after
Montgomery Negroes began a 381-day bus boycott on Dec. 5, 1955, "I went
to bed many nights scared to death" by threats against himself and his
family. "Early on a sleepless morning in January, 1956," King said,
"rationality left me." Then, "almost
out of nowhere I heard a voice that morning saying to me: “Preach the
Gospel, stand up for the truth, stand up for righteousness."
King went on, "Since that morning I can stand up without fear. So I'm
not afraid of anybody this morning.
He recounts a similar
experience in the middle of January of 1956, where he was praying and
then he heard the quiet reassurance of an inner voice saying: “Martin
Luther, stand up for righteousness, stand up for justice. Stand up for
truth. And lo, I will be with you. Even unto the end of the world.”
Could Martin have been talking to a demon? He didn’t believe Jesus died
for our sins, so demons could have set up shop in King soul.
KING'S AFFILIATION WITH
The Washington Observer
Newsletter reported that "When the FBI agents had King under
surveillance, they observed him meet a well-identified Soviet espionage
agent at the Kennedy Airport in New York. They also secured evidence
that King was receiving large sums of
money from a well-known American Communist
agent who gives King
instructions that he implicitly obeys."
Record April 11, 1968 pg. E3005)
When the government raided
the Southern Conference Educational Fund (labeled by the Senate
Internal Security Subcommittee as "a communist transmission belt for
the South.") a check was found made out to Martin Luther King, Jr.– it
was endorsed for cashing – the signatures on the check are those of James Dombrowski and Benjamin Smith
(registered agent of Fidel Castro), both were identified
Communist agents and the check is noted to be for "New York Expenses"
The check was dated March 7, 1963
KING AND PLAGIARISM:
The most complete analysis of King’s chronic plagiarism in his academic
career was done by Gerry Harbison, professor of Chemistry at University
of Nebraska: “In 1988, the Martin Luther King Jr. Papers Project
made a discovery that shocked it to its core. The Project, a group of
academics and students, had been entrusted by Coretta Scott King with
the task of editing King's papers for publication. As they examined
King's student essays and his dissertation, they gradually became aware
that King was guilty of massive plagiarism - that is, he had copied the
words of other authors word-for-word, without making it clear that what
he was writing was not his own.
The Project spent years uncovering the full extent of King's
plagiarism. In November 1990, word leaked to the press, and they had to
go public. The revelations caused a minor scandal and then were
promptly forgotten.” Suppressed would be a more accurate
description. The National Endowment for the Humanities actively
suppressed the story in preparation for celebrating King. His files are
sealed until 2027. Its then director was Lynne Cheney, wife of the former
Vice President, Dick Cheney.
He also plagiarized the closing part of his “I have a dream speech”
from Archibald Carey, Jr.’s address to the 1952 Republican National
I could go on about his sexual escapades, even admitting to Coretta his
infidelity just as she was getting surgery for a tumor, his wiretaps
with the FBI etc.
I will close off this email with this link. Margaret Sanger was the
mother of modern day eugenics, she helped create the birth control pill.
God Bless You all. And yes...the Truth shall set you free! Amen!
When Jesus gives you TRUTH he gives you TRUTH!
