Sunday Thoughts: Is God an Egalitarian?

Egalitarian

So often we hear about "social justice" or even "economic justice" by many on the Left of the political spectrum. They blame many people of the Christian faith of being hypocritical on this subject. So we ask a provocative question: Is the (Christian) God an Egalitarian? For the purposes of this article, perhaps we need to define egalitarianism. Egalitarianism is generally characterized by the idea that all human persons are equal in fundamental worth. For many, this definition sounds reasonable, but the devil is in the detail. Some go further and argue that egalitarianism is where people should be treated as equals and have the same political, economic, social, and civil rights and advocating the removal of economic inequalities among people.
