Did you know that human equality is ordained by God? There is no such thing as any one person being better or having more value than another!
Let me tell you a story I recently heard.
A preacher was recounting a time several years ago when, during the “invitation hymn” after the sermon, a lady came forward to be baptized. Now the preacher had previously heard about this lady, as he had been told that she was currently living with her boyfriend, who was a member of the church. As they stood together in front of the congregation, the pastor reflected that he knew he “needed to confront her about her sinful relationship.”
And that is exactly what he did.
As they exited to change clothes and prepare for the baptism the preacher cornered her and said, “There is no way I can baptize you unless you quit living in sin.”
The couple gave him their assurances that they wouldn’t live together. The lady was baptized. And they never went back to his church again.
