A Discriminatory Attitude
James 2:8-9 (KJV) If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
God is not a respecter of persons according to any of the world’s popular division techniques, including race, skin color, world-based position, age, or other designation. In fact, I hope you know that dividing people by such rhetoric is intolerance or true discrimination, and such tactics are included in the devil’s plan. Such a divisive nature is sinful, unloving, and opposed to God.
Whereas this world operates on division, God sees humanity collectively as only saved or lost at heart. That’s right; God separates souls into only two categories; saved or lost souls. God loves all humanity; though unmerited, it is an enduring love not built on virtue but intrinsic value. Every person is precious to God though many souls do not value God or each other.
The simple truth is though God loves everyone, not everyone loves God or others about them. Hearts in this world tend to discriminate souls by their perceived value, but God divides only by a heart’s spiritual state.
