DR. KING CAME HE WASN'T CALLED

DR. KING CAME HE WASN'T CALLED

Who is it that calls a man or woman to the ministry. Is it God or Jesus that invokes the calling and if it was Jesus how did Dr. Martin Luther King receive the calling when he questioned the virgin birth and sonship of Jesus. Who was this man called Jesus, Dr. King stated? When Dr. King preached he preached a social gospel using Black churches as his springboard. Jesus as a topic had no more relevance to Dr. King than Ghandi and other religious theologians.

If being called to the ministry is predicated on a calling from Jesus, Dr. King slipped through the crack with a desire to preach a social gospel rather than keeping with tradition by preaching Christ like his father and grandfather.

You know a man from his philosophy and theology by his writings which Dr. King expressed in his thesis. His beliefs had no promotional value to Jesus although Dr. King believed "Jesus furnished the spirit and motivation, and Gandhi furnished the method." Dr.King was an example that a calling can come from God and not an exclusive occurrence from Jesus.
