King on the early Church

“The early Christians rejoiced when they were deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days, the Church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr., “Letter from Birmingham Jail”
