I’m a great fan of talk radio as I drive to and fro, but I have to say I’m a little weary this week having been subjected to the continuous loops of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s sound bites spewing anti-American hate speech and other strange contortions of truth over and over and over. He certainly is no Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., or any of the other African American preachers I’ve come to enjoy over the years.
I’m sure if I dug hard enough I could probably find a sermon where Rev. Wright quoted the Bible or actually taught the love of Jesus from his pulpit, but I see no use. You see…..I only need to hear hate speech once to realize he’s not the preacher for me….especially when there are so many others to lead me into worship. To put it more plainly when I go to worship I want to be led into the love of Jesus Christ, not hate.
There are many versions of the following video out and about on different video sites, but the one I present here is interesting because of the types of music included….there’s more than one type of music throughout the piece mixed with the words of a dynamic pastor and movie images.
…and the message? The message is given by S.M. Lockridge better known as Dr. Shadrach Meshach (S.M.) Lockridge. Don’t you just love the name? He was the pastor at Calvary Baptist Church located in San Diego, California for over 40 years before passing away in 2000. His messages live on, and the following video presents his best known words.
There’s more said in the following eight minutes than I often hear in a sermon lasting fifteen or twenty minutes from television or revival preaching.
Please enjoy THAT’S MY KING
