7-8-2015 Who Is Equal?

According to the Bible, all humans were Created equal, for “the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being” (Genesis 2:7 NKJV). All humans have a body and a soul and are above the rest of the animal world. According to Jesus Christ, every “creature” who “believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:16 NKJV). Each Christian equally becomes “His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works” (Ephesians 2:10 NKJV). Jesus taught “the kingdom of heaven” is like a man who, in giving talents to his servants, “to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability” (Matthew 25:14-15 NKJV). Humans are only “equal” in Creation and Re-creation, but are not equal in “abilities.”
