Black PCA Pastor Evaluates King and Malcolm
TE Robert Cameron, Pastor of Mt. Carmel Church, Somerset, NJ, and author of Last Pew on the Left, recently gave his evaluation of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. With regard to King, Dr. Cameron said, "I just fail to see in his activities where the man understood the gospel. I don't think the Christian church should take up its time to venerate these people. The Scripture says, 'You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.' Those who are not free in Christ are not free."
He added, "When it comes to looking at a man like Malcolm X, he changed his view after he came back from Mecca, but he didn't embrace the gospel. . . . King, in his letter from the Birmingham jail, said his gospel was a gospel of social equality_those were his words.
"These were great men, and their activities were necessary at the time, but they were not Christian activities. And to give them honor in a Christian church is to raise their activities to a level they were never at."
Dr. Cameron's book is an evaluation of racial attitudes in America's churches.
