THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Partiality. James speaks of it in chapter 2 of his epistle. He must have been addressing the problem for a reason, right? Likely, partiality was an issue in the first century church, but modern Christians have all but conquered the problem. We are not partial, well at least not in the way James speaks about it, rich and poor. Have we really even put that type of partiality behind us? How else can we be partial? Along what lines? Try sex, race, education level, what college attended, home vs public school, the name of the preacher, language spoken, job, age, translation used, or doctrinal beliefs, among others. Leviticus 19:15 reminds us that we can show partiality both ways. We can show partiality in favor of the poor, the disadvantaged, and must be careful not to do so. Our example is God, Himself, who shows no partiality, Deuteronomy 10:17, 2 Chronicles 19:7, Job 34:19, 37:24, Acts 10:34, Romans 2:11, Galatians 2:6, Ephesians 6:9, Colossians 3:25, 1 Peter 1:17. These types of judgments have gone away as Paul reminds us in Galatians 3:28, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me. One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18. If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me. Sincerely, Scott Long firstname.lastname@example.org
