So much anger! So much arrogance, so much injustice. Not from those standing up for rights, but from those of the human race who believe that they are of greater worth and importance than the next person.
This notion of individual or corporate superiority permeates the whole of society and has done so for a very, very long time. From before Babylonia four thousand years ago, to modern day, people have been killing, persecuting and subjugating others because of their skin, associations, beliefs, or their perceived “evolutionary” position [Thank you Charles Darwin]. They don’t realize, or don’t care that our “lives” extend far beyond these meet suites we inhabit today. I can’t help but wonder how much less discord there would be in the world if God had not given us sight.
2 Corinthians 5:1-3; For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies.
But he did give us sight, and a free will. Adam and Eve exorcised that free will when they where told by an enemy of them and an enemy of God, that they could become like God if they just followed their desires and not God. This dark being challenged what God said and appealed to their emotions and their pride, until they made a decision based on their feelings, instead of God’s word. The same thing is happening to this very day.
Genesis 3:1-6; … “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”
… God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’”
“You won’t die!” …. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her
Acting on emotions and feelings didn’t work out well in antiquity and it’s not working out very well today. Why? Because the same enemy Adam and Eve encountered is still interfering with our lives today. That’s nonsense you say, society is more sophisticated, more enlightened and myths about evil can’t affect us.
I encourage you to read my earlier post “IS SATAN REAL AND ACTIVE TODAY”
John 14:30-31; I don’t have much more time to talk to you, because the ruler of this world [the Devil] approaches. He has no power over me, but I will do what the Father requires of me, so that the world will know that I love the Father. – Jesus
2 Timothy 2:25-26; Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. … For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.
Evil does exist today. He has a name and speaks in our ears every day to oppose God’s will and follow our own desires. He still tells us we can be like God too. We don’t have to look very far to see the evil in modern society.

There are many groups and individuals who experience first hand the evil that exists in this world. Look at the 150 billion dollar human trafficking industry that today subjugates an estimated 40 million people. These innocents are mostly woman and children who are enslaved and sexually exploited for profit, pleasure and gain.
Birth Control propaganda is thus the entering wedge for the Eugenic educator… Upon this basis only may we improve the quality of the race.
As an advocate of Birth Control, I wish to take advantage of the present opportunity to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the “unfit” and the “fit”, admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feeble-minded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation to the mentally and physically fit though less fertile parents of the educated and well-to-do classes. On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective. [Margaret Sanger, “The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda,” Oct 1921]
Planned Parenthood was in the news recently encouraging black woman to abort their babies. They said that it was safer to abort a baby then to have a baby. Black, White, Red, Yellow, Brown, Olive, it doesn’t matter, each one of those lives taken were created in God’s image.
We Are Spirit, Not Black, Native, Immigrant or Inferior
We are all created in the image of God.
Genesis 1:27; So God created human beings in his own image
And since God is without a physical body, we can be sure that none of our physical attributes resembles him. It is our life force, our spirits that he created in his image. We resemble him in nature and spirit.
John 4:24; For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth
John 1:18; No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God
John 6:46; No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. – Jesus
1 Timothy 1:17; All honor and glory to God forever and ever! He is the eternal King, the unseen one who never dies; he alone is God. Amen.
God does not judge on appearance but judges our hearts, our spirits.
1 Samuel 16:7; But the LORD said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.
Jeremiah 17:9-10; The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? But I, the LORD, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.
Matthew 23-27-28; “What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs—beautiful on the outside but filled on the inside with dead people’s bones and all sorts of impurity. Outwardly you look like righteous people, but inwardly your hearts are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness
Our flesh and bones only house the real us, our spirit which is the essence of who we are. We are all spirit beings, equal in God’s eyes. The skin we’re in is as irrelevant to who we are as a person, as the cars we drive and the clothes we wear. Those things are useless when calamity, sickness and loss come calling. They speak nothing about our courage, caring and character. Our earthly lives are very short, and so is the time we have to impact others. The only thing we can take into eternity with us are the lives we touch when we are alive.
God only created one race “Human Race”.. We are all subject to, and answerable to him whether we admit it or not. We will all be face to face with him one day. In the distant future when Jesus returns, or suddenly because of stroke, illness or accident [Globally there are 150,000 souls leaving this earth every day]. Our worldly accomplishments nor our status will impress God the day we stand before him. The only thing he will want to know is, did we put our faith in his Son Jesus Christ.
On that day, we will all be equally accountable for how we treated, or mistreated others created in His Image.
Galatians 3:26-29; For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes. There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you.
Colossians 4:1; Masters, treat your slaves with justice and fairness, because you know that you also have a master in heaven.
Revelation 2: 12-15; I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God’s throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books. The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds. Then death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This lake of fire is the second death. And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.
