Voice of the Day: Martin Luther King Jr.

By Administrator 09-18-2006

The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.

- Martin Luther King Jr., from The Strength to Love
