What Does the Bible Say About...Discrimination?

What does the Bible say about discrimination?


God does not like discrimination. That is because he does not discriminate. “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.” (Acts 10:34) If Christians are to be like God, then they also should not treat anyone else as if they are any less than themselves. Paul said all are the same in the church. “Ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.” (Colossians 3:9-11)
