There is only one personality I know of who lived up to the morals and ideals he taught, and he died for us on a cross.

There is not single “great” human who did not or does not have skeletons in their closet.

Do I care about Trump’s peccadilloes? No. I care what he does as far as policies and judicial picks.

Did MLK live up to his own ideals? Apparently not. Does that matter to me? No. I never saw him as a saint nor worshiped him as one.

That does not mean he never uttered any profound ideas or ideals. He did.

Thomas Jefferson was a master at offering some great ideals, we are still trying to fulfill. He too was not a saint.

“That does not mean he never uttered any profound ideas or ideals. He did.”

Uttering profound ideas and ideals is definitely not an indication of character, especially when they are plagiarized, as King was known to do. Anyone can quote scripture, or the writings of our Founding Fathers and/or their sources.

While not a saint, Billy Graham came close to the ideals taught by Jesus.

Jesus said to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” These words are spoken by the creator of the universe.
