Dr. King embraced those nicely-worn tenets as all fundamentalist preachers interior the previous had performed, giving the earnings of the doubt to an inescapable end that those issues, in spite of the undeniable fact that marvelous or otherworldly, can not ever be proved or disproved, that the data as laid out interior the Bible could be taken on faith.
