True Equality

Matthew 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

This sums up the greatest principle of humanity.  The world tries to put you in a special category, but with God we’re not defined by the things that people may first notice about us.  Native Americans, African Americans, homosexual Americans, and obese Americans all have fought from school playgrounds to judicial courts for their “rights.”  However, the Bible does not grant any specific special interest group their rights because to single out and protect one group is to not protect another.  The Bible is clear.  It’s not about race, gender, age, social status, or even religion or sin.  It’s about human beings.  Christ died for all mankind, and to devalue the life of any one person is a direct insult to the Saviour Who loves that person.  Treat everyone with respect because that is how you want to be treated.
