I Have A Dream 2011 (The Christian Church)

(Editor’s note: this is taken from the Facebook version of The Free Believers Network. One person decided to have his own version of the famous I Have A Dream Speech origninally given by late U.S. Civil Rights leader Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., but addressed to the Westernized (particularly North American) Christian Church today. This past Saturday it was Dr. King’s 82nd birthday if he was still with us today and Monday, the United States will be taking a statutory holiday in his memory. I think this was far better than commenting on the 25th anniversary of the death of Herbert Armstrong. Dr.King, whether you agreed with him or not, made a positive difference for America—he light a candle where Herbert Armstrong cursed the darkness (in sadomasochistic fashion of course).  Here is the new version of I Have A Dream: the King legacy lives on!)

I have a dream that one day pastors will be seen as equals and not having authority over their fellow man! 

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that the church will just be who she is in all of her splendor and not the monstrosity men have turned her into.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream where men will not look to men to lead them but will trust and follow their own good, renewed hearts.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream where even the pope will issue an official apology for using the love of Christ as a means to prosper his own earthly and corrupt kingdom.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream where people can be comfortable being themselves with each other… flaws and all. That is what makes us human and real.

I have a dream today.

When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
