DISCRIMINATION

DISCRIMINATION

James 2:1-4
    My brothers and sisters, practice your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ by not favoring one person over another.  For example, two men come to your worship service. One man is wearing gold rings and fine clothes; the other man, who is poor, is wearing shabby clothes.  Suppose you give special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say to him, “Please have a seat.” But you say to the poor man, “Stand over there,” or “Sit on the floor at my feet.”  Aren’t you discriminating against people and using a corrupt standard to make judgments?

 

          I have nothing to add to what James wrote nearly 2000 years ago. Just tell me that we’ve changed. If not, why not?
