Is God Prejudiced?
The first thing I would like to do is give mans meaning of prejudiced.
1. Opinion formed beforehand: a performed opinion, usually an unfavorable one, based on insufficient knowledge, irrational feelings, or inaccurate stereotypes.
2. Holding of ill-informed opinions: the holding of performed opinions based on insufficient knowledge, irrational feelings, or inaccurate stereotypes.
3. Irrational dislike of somebody: an unfounded hatred, fear, or mistrust of a person or group, especially one of a particular religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual preference, or social status.
When we speak of God, we speak of Pure Spirit and not flesh. The definitions of prejudice is only accountable to man and His disbelief in truth and righteousness. As we see in Jer 13:23, man is accustomed to doing evil and not good.
"Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil."
Lets take a look at some words from the definition.
1. Irrational dislike.
Gods answer. Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
2. Ill-informed opinions.
Gods answer. Mat 23:33-35. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
3. Inaccurate stereotypes.
Gods answer. Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Mar 6:11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
4. Unfounded hatred.
Gods answer. 2Pe 2:4-9. For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment: And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.
5. Insufficient knowledge.
Gods answer. Pro 2:2-6. So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
[Ref. Exo_31:3; 1Ki_3:9, 1Ki_3:12, 1Ki_4:29; 1Ch_22:12; Job_32:8; Isa_54:13; Dan_1:17; Dan_2:21, Dan_2:23; Luk_21:15; Joh_6:45; Eph_1:17, Eph_1:18; Jam_1:5, Jam_1:17 ]
Pro 14:18 The simple inherit folly: but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
Pro 18:15 The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
Pro 21:11 When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.
I have read many an article condemning Christians, especially preachers, for standing up for the word of God. Subjects as Homo-sexuality, Religion, Non- tolerance of Idol worship in their communities, and the such. They are always using the Bible as a source of self justification. They proclaim that God is all loving and, we should be like Him. But I'm afraid to say to these people, we are being as our Father in Heaven. We cannot justify, sin, unrighteousness nor ungodliness. We, as Christians, have been asked to accept teaching in our schools that are contrary to our belief in the Holy Scriptures. When many are calling for a separation of Church and State, then why are the forces of darkness allowed to teach anti-christian formats within our society. Changing children hearts from God to a form of self proclaimed religion. Corrupting society with false teaching. And all in the name of Unity.
Lets read a little Scripture.
Isa 1:4-5 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
Jer 9:2-5. Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men. And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD. Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders. And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.
Job 11:3 Should thy lies make men hold their peace? and when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed?
This is the Word of God."Making them an ensample." Gal 5:19-21. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Rev 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Ask yourself this question. After you have read the words of God, do you believe that we are to try to justify these types of people or warn them? Its not a matter of prejudice against these types of people, its a matter of loving them enough to warn them and to resist them. Warning them of the impending judgment. Resisting them in their efforts to teach their way of life to our children. So, Is God prejudiced? You answer.
