All People Have Equal Value

“And he said to them, “You yourselves know how unlawful it is for a man who is a Jew to associate with a foreigner or to visit him; and yet God has shown me that I should not call any man defiled or unclean…….And opening his mouth, Peter said: “I most truly comprehend now that God is not one to show partiality, but in every nation the one who fears Him and does righteousness is welcome to Him.” Acts 10:28, 34-35 LSB


All men are created equal, all people have equal value in the christian religion. This is true because from one man and one woman God ordained the ‘making’ of all people and so all people have come from these two people that God made in His image. No other religion teaches that all people are of equal value in the eyes of God, male and female, equal in value, both made in the image of God. Hinduism, Islam, Mormonism, and all the other religions differentiate humanity by gender or economics or melanin. Only Christianity begins and ends with the teaching that all people are of equal value to God. Equal value does not mean equal responsibility. Equal value does not mean freedom to disobey God. All people have equal responsibility to obey God, to love Him with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves. All people are to serve, worship, and share Jesus as King of kings and Lord of lords, for He alone is both God and man, the Savior of the world and the Judge of all for eternity. People have oppressed, discriminated, and maligned different peoples throughout the ages because we are evil. God never meant for this to be for all people are His people, He takes delight in the great variety He made possible through His creative process. If we are truly God’s people then we will love all people and seek to restore all people to the One True God Who made all people in His image through His original creation of the first man and woman.
