One of the most common free-will arguments pivots on the assumption that God must offer salvation to all men in order to be fair. I can't help but wonder if this thinking is encouraged by a basic premise within the foundation of the USA, as shown in the Declaration of Independence. But where in the Bible does it ever say that God created all men equal? Surely the Declaration of Independence is not canon, is it? So do we have the right to assume it is true that all men are created equal? Now, before anyone has a bovine offspring, let me emphasize that I am asking this purely from the philosophical perspective of whether or not it is valid to base a theological position on the assumption that all men are created equal. I am NOT asking if the conclusion that all men are not created equal should lead us to behave one way or another. The Bible is quite clear on this matter: Leviticus 19:18 Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD. Philippians 2:3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Romans 13:9 The commandments, "Do not commit adultery," "Do not murder," "Do not steal," "Do not covet," and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: "Love your neighbor as yourself." So to say that we are not necessarily created equal is no excuse to do anything but love one another. And when the Bible talks about anything that can be interpreted as inequality, it says to consider others better than yourselves! So let's not let this degenerate into an argument about bigotry, ok?
