*A prominent megachurch pastor has asserted that Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was “not a Christian at all.”

John MacArthur — an 85-year-old white male pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California — made the claim during a sermon last month, LGBTQ Nation reports. 

In his remarks, he criticized a group of evangelical pastors known as Together for the Gospel [T4G], for honoring King several years ago, Right Wing Watch reported.

“[T4G] bought into the deceptiveness of the woke movement and the racial baiting that was going on a couple of years ago, and it literally put them out of existence,” MacArthur said. “The strange irony was a year later, they did the same thing for Martin Luther King, who was not a Christian at all, whose life was immoral.”

MacArthur continued, “I’m not saying [King] didn’t do some social good, and I’ve always been glad he was a pacifist or he could have started a real revolution. But you don’t honor a non-believer who misrepresented Christ and everything about the gospel.”

Per LGBTQ Nation, MacArthur previously said, “The Bible is abundantly clear — slavery is the heart of what it means to be a true Christian,” and “Christianity does not free slaves. Christianity does not give equal social rights. … Jesus did not propound equal rights and he did not upset the social order…. Rather, they all affirmed that, with great fear of God and great respect, you are to be submissive to your masters. Whether they’re good and gentle or whether they are unreasonable — you are to submit.”

MacArthur also takes an anti-LGBTQ+ stance, claiming gay people don’t really exist.

“No one is gay. People commit adultery, they commit sins of homosexuality, they lie, they steal, they cheat,” he said, accordign to The Friendly Atheist.

“That’s like saying, ‘You know, I keep robbing banks, but I’m a robber. I’m a bank robber. What am I gonna do? I’m a bank robber.’ That is not an excuse for what you do,” MacArthur added. “Are there certain kind of impulses that lead people in that direction? Yes. But I think one of the really deadly aspects of this is to let people define themselves as gay.”
