The Royal Law Insists on
It is written:
"For God does not show favoritism."
" My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ
must not show favoritism. Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a
gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes
in. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say,
“Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or
“Sit on the floor by my feet,” have you not discriminated among yourselves
and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen my dear brothers and
sisters: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to
be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?
But you have dishonored the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting
you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court? Are they not the
ones who are blaspheming the noble name of him to whom you belong?" -James
"Then Peter began to speak:
'I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts
men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.'" -Acts 10:34,
