America's Founding Documents state, "All men are created equal," and the vast majority of nominal minded "believers" go right along with this.

Here are the facts:

1.) The Founding Fathers wrote this statement in their documents, but their intended meaning of equality it is not found in any manner in Scripture. They were not talking about all men being equally judged by God, the Gospel being equally applicable to all men, or God equally loving all men. They were talking about civil, political, and social equality.

2.) As well, no Scripture says that all men are created equal regarding civil, political, and social status. In fact, Scripture shows much to the contrary in its demonstration of monarchy governments, family heritage issues, and social hierarchy.

3.) Scripture clearly demonstrates spiritual inequality, as well. Prophet Jeremiah was intended to be a Prophet before his conception, King David was conceived in sin, John the Baptiser was atypically filled with the Spirit in the womb, Esau was destinedto be hated by God and to serve Jacob, and all Cretians were doomed to be lazy liars.

4.) Mere inspection of neonates shows some are diseased, incompletely formed, nonviable, and many are immediately subject to gender and racial bias. They are not created equal. Female neonates are not equal to males, in that their intrauterine hormonal and physical developments are not the same. Babies born in foreign countries do not have equal rights as the native born. Babies born in war do not have protection and resources as those born in peace time.

The more accurate ideology to hold in mind upon this topic is to say, "Much of mankind is born with similarities, God does not force equality upon them, and it is the destiny of all men to live with injustices."

Thank you for asking.

Go ahead and review the original post here which introduces you and many others to the functional truth that not all people are created equal as said in America's Founding documents. As well, I briefly reviewed how Scripture shows much to the contrary of this "equality" nonsense.

Okay?

Not, not okay in the least, if you are suggesting some people are to be granted more rights than others just for being born in a higher station, which is what the founding founder of, I presume, your country were concerned at the time.

King David was conceived in sin


I think you mean King Solomon. ;)

Solomon was conceived out of murder(Uriah) and adultery between David and Bathsheba. No where in the Bible does it say that David was conceived in sin... In fact it talks about his father Jesse but never even mentions his mother that I am aware of...

In Gods eyes, all men are created equal: Romans 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.
This says it all. Something that man wrote (that was not divinely inspired) is irrelevant.

The OP is conflating socio-political equality with health / money / religion. They are not and never have been the same.

“If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it.” ― Stephen Colbert

This country was formed at 1776 as a Confederacy and that government lasted until 1788. The founding father opposed going to another form of government. The constitutional form of government allowed for the stealing of land and displacing the Native American and ultimately lead to a huge number wanting to go back to the founding fathers government. The civil war was not fought over slavery. The same slavery existed in the north as in the south. Corporate America merged out at the end of the civil war; and.....................

The gist of your post is a no brainer; a six year old could figure it out, but most professors can't! Posted Image The sad part is, we live in a civilization that has embraced Egalitarianism. Since God did not make us that way, we should not pretend He did! That is deceitful, disrespectful and unjust. It is also incompetent. Not surprisingly, the fruit of Egalitarianism is very bitter. In addition, most people are sick and tired of their heads being messed with, by Egalitarian Social Engineers (aka Utopians/Radicals).

People of the day (1776) actually believed all white people where menatally born equal and it was the up bringing that made all the difference.
