Today Is My Birthday

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Yesterday we celebrated MLK’s birthday. Several candidates announced a presidential bid yesterday. Most if not all of those candidates are pro-abortion. Today is my birthday.

Today is also the anniversary of the horribly bad Roe v. Wade legislation which become law in 1973.

I’m not marching for life today. We did that last Friday at the annual March for Life where I was blessed to do the closing prayer. However, I am praying; and blogging.

Don’t be fooled y’all. Abortion is “a pig in a poke”. [Means something that is bought or accepted without knowing its value or seeing it first; an old fashioned saying from a 68 year old woman. Indulge me.]

Today, on my birthday, I’m praying for God to end the scourge of crimes against humanity with abortion at the top of the list. Today I’m not judging anyone. I’m just praying. Why? Because I’m post abortive; repentant and redeemed.

I can’t help wondering how long we will have to deal with the dichotomy of killing innocent babies in the womb [and often maiming their mothers in the process] and calling it good?

Meanwhile, we are fighting over a wall.

Actually building a security wall to assist in protecting American citizens as well as serving innocent immigrants seeking a better life is a good idea. That wall is a practicality.

On the other hand, tearing down the walls of hatred and bigotry in our hearts; that’s also a good idea. After all, we are not separate races; we are not color blind. We are one blood, one human race. [Acts 17:26]

While on yesterday some candidates cited MLK as inspiration for running for president in 2020, they seem to forget that MLK was a prophet and Bible preacher. To use his name and then promote abortion (as some if not all of those candidates do) and other crimes against humanity is contradictory.

During this season I often share LET FREEDOM RING. It’s a song I wrote in 1973, the year Roe v. Wade emerged to wreak havoc resulting in the deaths of over 60 million babies in the ensuing years.

Today is my birthday y’all. Pray with me that God will let justice run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream. [Amos 5:24] LET FREEDOM RING.

Marching for Life, Congressman King’s Our Brother, The Wall Makes Sense, MLK DAY All About Love

Friday, January 18th, 2019

As “boots on the ground” in Washington, DC for the 24th Annual National Memorial Prayer Service and the March for Life today, I’m also getting calls to defend Congressman Steve King for racist remarks. Meanwhile, my family and I are in the heat and heart of the celebration of the 90th birthday of my uncle Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. And people are still fighting about the wall.

I’m being asked if Congressman King a racist? Actually, from my point of view, until we all accept the scientific, philosophical and spiritual truth that we are all one human race, one Blood, we’re all a little racist.

Think about it. As long as we continue to refer to ourselves in our separate ethnic groups as different races we will never break away from racism. Act 17:26 of the Bible (NIV) says, “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.” This is why Uncle MLK suggested that we should be brothers and sisters, and not be foolish.

Along with sharing our human commonality, Congressman King and I mutually share regard for the sanctity of life. So I’m praying for my brother.

Also, this weekend, as our nation forges on towards trying to reopen our government by agreeing on a solution to secure the southern border let’s remember that love of one’s nation is not grounds for hate of another nation or another group of humans. Actually, the wall makes sense for now. We can dream for that day when the walls and barriers won’t be needed, and that pre-born babies are allowed to cross the barriers of the womb. We pray for an end to all crimes against humanity; born and unborn.

Let’s pray for all our brothers and sisters, today and moving ahead. May we always be mindful that our good deeds and good intentions can always be attacked when we are not shielded by the reality of not being separated by the human concept of different races. We are all created by God as One Human Race. We’re not color blind. Let’s agree with MLK. It’s all about Agape Love. Let the healing begin.

African American Leaders Unite Around the Wall to Help Avoid Looming Crisis

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

Some claim that building a wall is “medieval solution” to a modern problem. The wheel is an ancient solution too. Nobody’s complaining about that. POTUS is on target. Walls do work; as in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah, walls are still viable solutions. Why now? Just days away are the March for Life and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday yet America is in crisis at the southern border.

As an African American voice for justice, a defender of the sanctity of life, and perhaps most importantly a Christian evangelist, I stand with President Trump as he labors to build a wall. From my perspective, compassion trumps terror. Our prayers are needed more than ever. We must rally around the wall to avert crisis.

Having survived and in many cases overcome tyranny, oppression and racism in America, we as African Americans are close to the heartbeat of justice and compassion. We are not color blind. Our hearts are touched by the plight of all children and their families; not just at the border, but here at home as well.

Children in the womb, in cribs, in school, in jail, with parents behind bars, on the streets, at our borders; many are in danger. We must have responsible compassion for them all.

My goddaughter, Angela Stanton King, co-founder of the American King Foundation writes: “The process of draining the swamp, is a process of seeking genuine true justice, jubilee, pardon, and forgiveness. We’re going to continue to discover that there are some very thin lines between right, wrong, justice, and injustice. Meanwhile, we live in a world where security is necessary. The Wall plan is viable.”

Rev. Bill and Dr. Deborah Owens, Founders of CAAP write: “Christians have a responsibility to help those in need, including the undocumented immigrants at our southern border. At the same time, we must also respect the need to secure our borders and ensure the safety of all U.S. citizens. The African-American community has been gravely injured by unfettered illegal immigration, which has resulted in loss of jobs, loss of housing, and other economic hardship.”

Collectively, we stand with President Trump in the battle for the soul of America. I’m praying that POTUS builds the wall in the manner that Ezra and Nehemiah did in days of old.”

As Commander and Chief of America, POTUS is fighting for the soul of our nation. In his address to the nation on January 8, 2019, President Donald J. Trump speaks to the people of America:

  • There is a growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border.
  • Customs and Border Patrol agents continue to encounter thousands of illegal immigrants at our southern border. 
  • Meanwhile, Americans are continually at risk from uncontrolled, illegal migration. 
  • This climate strains public resources and drives down jobs and wages for the American people as well as the legal immigrants who are here. 
  • Among those ethnic communities hardest hit are African Americans and Hispanic Americans.
  • Sadly, our southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs, including meth, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl.
  • As a result, every week, 300 of our citizens are killed by heroin alone, 90 percent of which floods across from our southern border. 
  • If something isn’t done, and soon, more Americans could die from drugs this year than were killed in the entire Vietnam War.
  • Last month, 20,000 migrant children were illegally brought into the United States — a dramatic increase.  These children are used as human pawns by vicious coyotes and ruthless gangs. 
  • One in three women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico.  Women and children are the biggest victims, by far, of our broken system.

“This is a humanitarian crisis — a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul,” he asserted.

Thankfully, the President is not alone in his efforts to serve the people of America as well as the immigrant families who are flooding our border. The president further appeals to the soul of the American people with a call to heart:

  • America works hard to welcome millions of lawful immigrants who enrich our society and contribute to our nation.
  • In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings.
  • This is the tragic reality of illegal immigration on our southern border.  This is the cycle of human suffering that POTUS is determined to end.
  • We must fall to our knees and then rise and rally to the call.
  • The president’s proposal includes requests from Homeland Security for cutting-edge technology for detecting drugs, weapons, illegal contraband, and many other things. Also included in his proposal are requests for more agents, immigration judges, and bed space to process the sharp rise in unlawful migration fueled by our very strong economy.
  • The plan also contains an urgent request for humanitarian assistance and medical support.
  • There is also an urgent request that Congress will close border security loopholes so that illegal immigrant children can be safely and humanely returned back home.
  • In addition, as an overall approach to border security, law enforcement professionals have requested $5.7 billion for a physical barrier.  At the request of Democrats, it will be a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall.
  • This barrier is absolutely critical to border security.  It’s also what our professionals at the border want and need.

Today, I join my colleagues in the faith in a cry for prayer and compassion as we face this present danger.

Speaking from a platform in support of diversity and compassion, Bruce LeVell, Executive Director of NDC Trump writes: “As a follower of Christ, my convictions are to set up processes to aid those subjected to evil. Meanwhile we must protect our citizens. Mr. President, build that wall!”

Bishop Leon Benjamin, Coalition of Leaders United makes an urgent appeal: “This is a Humanitarian Effort. A Crisis of the Soul and Heart! Time to Stop It and Keep America Safe! Secure Our Borders and Build the Wall!”

Day Gardner, Founder of National Black Prolife Union speaks in support: “President Trump is presenting brilliant and compassionate solutions to the crisis. I pray that the masses unite in prayer and action to avoid disaster.”

Rev. Dean Nelson, Chairman of the board for the Frederick Douglass Foundation agrees: “The proper role of our government is to protect its citizens before it doles out benefits to others. Securing our boarder is a necessity to protect American workers and crack down on Human trafficking.”

In conclusion, we urge all Americans to pray for a speedy reconciliation among our leaders for the sake of the children, and the soul of America.

Wow, What a Week: Prison Reform, Abortion, Fake News, and Prayer at the White House

Friday, August 31st, 2018

First, #PrisonSeparatesFamilies. #BringOurDadsHome.

Angela Stanton and I just returned from speaking at a prison ministry service in Mississippi to about 200 men. Almost every man in the room was a father, grandfather and some were great-grandfathers. It was such a blessing to be able to bring hope to the lives of those that in a place that presumably doesn’t often offer much hope.

Second, #AbortionSeparatesFamilies. #LetOurChildrenLive.

Abortion activists are at it again. This time it’s The Afiya Center, a black women’s reproductive rights group as reported by The Daily Caller. No matter how much they try to make abortion just another life event like taking out the trash or making your bed, abortion is and will always be something that kills a baby in the womb and hurts women and men and our society as a whole.

Then there’s the news report about some housewives, and what I really said.

When I spoke about the spoof from Cardi B, ‘Housewives of the Civil Rights Movement’ in an interview with TMZ, I said that my Uncle, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have chuckled, not in approval but rather as a knee jerk reaction. He would not have approved of any misrepresentation that paints his wife and other Civil Rights leaders in the culture of today with all the profanity and disrespectful treatment of women that is so commonly seen in today’s media. Not hating on the young ladies in the spoof; just saying.

Finally, prayer which should be the best part of any week; in this case, prayer at the White House with the President, First Lady and many evangelical leaders from around the country.

My week began at a dinner hosted by the President and the First Lady with evangelical leaders to pray for our nation and to encourage prayer in the churches across America. America is becoming great but there is still much to address and the best way to bring that about is through prayer.

We must continue to #PrayForAmerica!

Evangelist Alveda C. King: Remembering the legacy of MLK #MLK50

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

Today, April 4, 2018, marks the 50th anniversary of the legacy of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. I, and other family members and many friends are prayerfully joining his heirs; Martin III, Dexter, Bernice and granddaughter Yolanda Renee, as well as their spouses; as we all, including The President, commemorate the momentous day. Then, tomorrow we will join the US Park Service in celebrating the newly proclaimed MLK National Historic Park.

Fifty years ago, my “Uncle ML” left this world after being gunned down in a grim assassination. Yet his legacy lives on; not attached to the bullets, but rather pointing to Christ’s victory on the cross.

The number 50 represents Jubilee; a season of grace and freedom. Ultimately Jesus won freedom for everyone. In following Christ, MLK embraced the totality of Agape Love for humanity.

Shortly before his death on April 4, 1968, in his 1967 Christmas sermon, MLK pointed out the foundation of his vision: “And when we truly believe in the sacredness of [the] human personality, we won’t exploit people, we won’t trample over people with the iron feet of oppression, we won’t kill anybody.”

If Uncle MLK were here today, he would likely remind us that we can “live together as brothers [and sisters]; rather than perish together as fools.

I believe that “Uncle ML” and Aunt Coretta would be blessed to know that their three remaining adult children and granddaughter are walking toward a path of not being judged by the color of their skin, but rather to be embraced as beloved members of the one blood human race of Acts 17:26.

By denouncing racism, violence and hurtful human deeds today and in the days ahead; by embracing nonviolent actions of a “One Blood Human Race” with our words and behavior, we can march towards a brighter day. We must agree to “value the human personality” from the womb to the tomb.

Finally, MLK was an imperfect and repentant human being who served a perfect God. Today, I believe my uncle would encourage us all to turn from the glittering and deceptive lights of the world and seek after the truth and light of God.

When we do this, Jubilee will dawn in our lives, and freedom will truly ring.

50 Years After, MLK’s Dream Still Lives On

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

180320 blog imageOn April 4, 2018 the world will remember the life and legacy of my Uncle Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. whose life on earth was cut short by an assassin’s bullet 50 years ago. Please pray for the immediate family of MLK/CSK during this sensitive time.

As a member of “The King Family Legacy” and of the Board of Trustees for The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change founded by his widow, the valiant Mrs. Coretta Scott King and other members of our family, I will be joining many of those who will commemorate the MLK legacy both publicly and privately.

Along with the official ceremonies in Atlanta hosted by The King Center and the new MLK National Historic Park, all taking place April 4-9, 2018, there will be a release of a new cover to the original song LET FREEDOM RING [with prayer], as well as a release of a new documentary.

In commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination, Sunwise Media and Positive Promotions, LTD are set to debut an advance televised documentary screening of UNSOLVED HISTORY: LIFE OF A KING on March 25, in Atlanta.

The one hour documentary narrated by Emmy Award Winning Newsman Ed Gordon, presents exclusive interviews with King family members and other courageous men and women of America’s 20th Century Civil Rights Movement.

For air dates and times visit: sunwisemedia.com/unsolvedhistory

Dr. King once asked: “Where do we go from here?”

On this 50th Anniversary, as the MLK tributes and testimonies are revisited, we must pray that Uncle ML’s timeless message of God’s Agape Love resonates in the days ahead. With Agape Love as the key to humanity’s problems, we – men, women and children of every nation, tongue and tribe – must embrace the One Blood/One Human Race of Acts 17:26. We’re not separate races; we’re not color blind. Let’s move forward in loving and living color; not only in memory of Rev. Dr. King; but more so in prayerful tribute to the God that MLK served.

“For this is how God loved the world: God gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.”
John 3:16-17 NLT

Evangelist Alveda C. King: More Surprises Ahead in the Race (No Pun Intended) of the Century

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018

180124 blog image

As we celebrate many landmark victories at the beginning of the 2018 new year, including the new MLK National Historic Park and other historical revelations, we may also be gearing up for the race of the century; President Trump and Oprah. At any rate for now, let us thank God for the opportunities before us. We can be great again.

We are approaching “Black History Month.” Let’s prepare to maximize opportunities for unity and reconciliation as we acknowledge the biblical and scientific evidence that we are not separate races, but are rather One Blood/One human race. This post from my cousin Isaac Newton Farris, Jr. makes some good points.

And who doesn’t love Oprah? Hollywood’s favorite Diva is once again making a splash with words for the curious about who shall see God. According to Miss Winfrey, everyone will see God; with the caveat that Christianity holds no dibs on the opportunity.

Actually, as is often the case with various viewpoints, there is some truth in the diatribe associated with religious debates. With the exception of atheists, most people believe in a “higher power” that we stand to meet one day. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to have the Great Judge as ABBA Father, my “heavenly father” when I stand before the Judgment Seat. We can only experience such a blessing by receiving Jesus as our Lord and Savior before we take our last breaths.

“Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

The thing is, while God is the ultimate judge, there is a unique and special opportunity through Christianity to have God not only as our final judge. Yet some choose to avoid the nuances that this opportunity offers.

In closing, let me remind you to please remember to check out our Roe v. Wade movie and my new book, KING TRUTHS.

We are in a crosshairs, with much to lose and more to gain. Remember America in prayer, and let’s thank God for President Trump’s fulfillment of many of his campaign promises. Also, continue in faith and love, praying for all of humanity, for the end of government funded abortions, and for positive solutions in our governmental affairs!

Racism Must Die So That America Can Thrive.

Monday, August 14th, 2017

Friends, there is a reason why I’m Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn here in the 21st Century. As we see from the most recent racially motivated massacre in Virginia, racism is still alive and raising hell. Think about it. Racism is sin. Hatred is sin. Yet for whatever reason, the pot of domestic terrorism continues to be stirred under the guise of promoting “racial supremacy.” The big lie is that we are separate races, when in fact the spiritual, scientific and biological fact is that we are one blood; one human race [Acts 17:26] Racism and hatred are deadly. This is why I so often quote my Uncle MLK:

“We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters], or perish together as fools. I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

We should be grateful that POTUS is calling for a cease fire on the violence. My King Family Legacy foundations have taught me that nonviolent conflict reconciliation is the key to ending these “race wars.”

“Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13

Trump condemns ‘white supremacists,’ other extremists behind deadly Virginia rallies

As one of God’s microphones, I’m often required to say what people don’t want to hear. Abortion is racism, in that abortion takes away the civil rights and lives of our weakest and most vulnerable members of the human race, unborn babies.

Here’s an encapsulation of The King Family Legacy’s approach to nonviolent conflict resolution which is introduced here briefly:

SIX STEPS AND PRINCIPLES FOR NONVIOLENT SOCIAL CHANGE – A sequential journey to victory:
Principle 1: Nonviolence is not passive, but requires courage.
Principle 2: Nonviolence seeks reconciliation, not defeat of an adversary.
Principle 3: Nonviolent action is directed at eliminating evil, not destroying an evildoer.
Principle 4: A willingness to accept suffering for the cause, if necessary, but never to inflict it.
Principle 5: A rejection of hatred, animosity or violence of the spirit, as well as refusal to commit physical violence.
Principle 6: Faith that justice will prevail.

Six Steps of nonviolent conflict resolution:

(1.) Prayerfully gather facts.

(2.) Prayerfully educate adversaries and the public about the facts of the dispute.

(3.) Prayerfully commit yourself to live and manifest a nonviolent attitude and actions.

(4.) Prayerfully mediate and negotiate with adversaries in a spirit of goodwill to correct injustice.

(5.) Prayerfully apply nonviolent direct action, such as prayer vigils, marches, boycotts, mass demonstrations, picketing, sit-ins etc., to help persuade or compel adversary to work toward dispute-resolution.

(6.) Prayerfully anticipate reconciliation among adversaries in a win-win outcome in establishing a sense of community which should now be achievable.

Considering the times, I am grateful to be a part of a biological family as well as a spiritual family who embrace these truths. Won’t you join us?

Evangelist Alveda King urges: “MLK’s Dream Needs Help from God.”

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

170404 blog image1

“I just want to do God’s will. And he’s allowed me to go to the mountain top. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the Promised Land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land.” Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The world seems to have forgotten what Martin Luther King, Jr. knew; we need God’s help” said Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life and niece of MLK. “Pray for President Trump, America, and the World. We must return to God.”

Yesterday, in the midst of planning to honor the MLK DREAM with a new Initiative, the Christian Evangelist woke up to the news that Reba McEntire and Lauren Daigle sang ‘Back to God’ at the 2017 ACM Awards. Evangelist King agrees that “as people of One Blood, we must repent, Pray and Unite. “Back to God’ was just the right direction for the times.

170404 blog image2“Today, April 4, 2017 marks the 49th Anniversary of the death of my Uncle. It is fitting therefore to call for the initial “A Time of Love and Reconciliation” which is being read by talk radio hosts of all political leanings drawing attention to H.R. 194 (110th), a resolution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on July 29, 2008 that “apologize[d] to African Americans on behalf of the people of the United States, for the wrongs committed against them and their ancestors who suffered under slavery and Jim Crow” and “express[ed] its commitment to rectify the lingering consequences of the misdeeds committed against African Americans under slavery and Jim Crow and to stop the occurrence of human rights violations in the future.”

It’s an appropriate tribute to MLK’s 49th anniversary of his life and legacy. If he were here today, I believe he would agree with Ted Hays, leader of Heal America Collaborative, Reba and Lauren, and yes, me, and prayerfully lead people everywhere to return back to God,” urges Evangelist King.

“In the midst of life’s challenges; racism, war, poverty, human trafficking, abortion violence and evil of every kind; in order to escape the abyss, we need help from God to fulfill Uncle M. L.’s dream today! On this MLK Anniversary, as we join activist Ted Hayes with the launch of A Time of Love and Reconciliation,” God’s Word – “Return to Me” – is resonating across the atmospheres; reaching into the darkness and awakening a heavenly fire and light that cannot and will not be denied.

I’m honored to have my new book from Elijah List added to the cause; “AMERICA RETURN TO GOD” in proclaiming the very same message. If the Dream of my Uncle Martin Luther King, Jr. is to be fully received, we must return to, we must come back to God.

“My wayward children,” says the LORD, “come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts.”
