Deuteronomy 5:31-32 Walking the King Of King’s Walk
31 But as for you, stand here by Me, that I may speak to you all the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments which you shall teach them, so that they may follow them in the land which I am giving them to possess.’ 32 So you shall be careful to do just as the Lord your God has commanded you; you shall not turn aside to the right or to the left.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is honored and remembered by Americans, from religious and non-religious and political Americans as well. As a pastor, Dr. King used the gospel of Jesus. To teach Americans, we must love and treat others in a civil loving way. This was his movement. Dr. King loved the Lord and loved all God’s children, regardless of race, gender, black or white, young and old. Dr. King prepared a sermon, titled, Paul’s Letter to American Christians, and he delivered it to the United Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1958. Most Christian pastors don’t like to use the pulpit for political reasons, but politics and human rights in the USA can be uncivil. One problem Dr. King said American Christians have is not being maladjusted, which in secular definition means lacking harmony with one’s environment from failure to adjust one’s desires to the conditions of one’s life. The word of God’s definition of maladjusted is this; do not accept or live by what is evil and call it good. The apostle Paul wrote to the Roman church telling them how to stay maladjusted.
Dr. King adds his own spin to what the Apostle Paul said, in Romans 12:2, and he said this; “There are certain technical words within every academic discipline that soon become stereotypes and cliches. Modern psychology has a word that is probably used more than any… It is the word “maladjusted.” This word is the ringing cry to modern child psychology. Certainly, we all want to avoid a maladjusted life. In order to have real change within our personalities, we all want a well-adjusted life… But I say to you, my friends… there are certain things in our nation and in the world (about) which I am proud to be maladjusted and which I hope all men of good-will will be maladjusted until the good societies realize. “
Some modern Christian Americans do what the Apostle Paul and Dr. King told Christians not to do. They are living adjusted life and conformed themselves to the sins, the holy scripture calls abominations. The LGBTQ community embrace Dr. King’s civil rights movement. Dr. King would preach, live with them in love and give them rights, but don’t call sin godly and acceptable. If a Christian calls a homosexual lifestyle a sin, against God’s word, the social world will label that person homophobic, which means to show a dislike of or prejudice against gay people. The Black Lives Matter movement highly supports the LGBTQ lifestyle and many of the Black Lives Matter organized groups are Christians and BLM meetings are held in Christian churches. There is a difference in living with respect and love for each other, but accepting a sinful lifestyle is conforming to evil. A human is born, black, white, or male and female, but there is no evidence a person is more with a same-sex attraction, just like evolution has never been proven, but is believed more than how God created heaven and earth. There are many sins Christians will embrace and accept, for social and government benefits, not just homosexuality. No matter what a lukewarm Christian calls an acceptable, evil lifestyle, God’s words still call it a sin. God bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you, and so do I. His bondservant, Samuel J. Head.
John 17:14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I am not asking You to take them out of the world, but to keep them away from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.
Romans 1:24 Therefore God gave them up to vile impurity in the lusts of their hearts, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for falsehood, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged natural relations for that which is contrary to nature, 27 and likewise the men, too, abandoned natural relations with women and burned in their desire toward one another, males with males committing shameful acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a depraved mind, to do those things that are not proper,
