The American Declaration of Independence says that “all men are created equal.” The Bible, however, never says that people are created equal. Instead, it says that the human race was created “in the image of God.”
It’s human nature to embrace pride and a sense of superiority over some people, but Jesus calls us to go against human nature and to cultivate and demonstrate humility in our relationships with all who bear God’s image. We’re told not to “lord it over” people, but rather to “consider others better than yourself.”
Equality tries to find a middle ground, but free will makes equality impossible. If you give 10 people a thousand dollars, they will get unequal results from your gift. The only way to keep them equal is to force them all to do the same thing with their gift. Communism demonstrated to the world that equality doesn’t happen without people being forced into it, and even then, the people who are in control forcibly amass wealth and power that the so-called equal people aren’t allowed.
Democracy says that the majority rules, thus making people in the minority unequal to people in the majority and subject to their insults and abuse. The religious organizations known as church have neglected to train Christians to embrace and live out humility, honesty, and justice. Thus, it has opened the door for social engineers to try to fix the wrongs that churches have ignored and even supported (such as: greed, hardheartedness, racism, bullying, ignoring the poor, self-righteousness, etc.).
