(Pro 28:21 KJV) To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.
This is a reminder that Christians are committed to what we call the “rule of law”. That is the opposite of “rule by fiat”. The law is a mutually agreed on and understood statement about what is right and wrong. It is to be applied evenly to everyone. It does not mean there will not be variations in opportunity, ability or outcome. It means that you will not treat people difference because of superficial qualities.
Remember that this is not the same as modern perversions like affirmative action and race politics. Those manipulate the law to gain power. The Bible treats people with the law of love.
So? As we live in the image of God, treat people evenly.
