Equality: I liked this

"In a letter to a church in a region called Galatia, one of the first Christians, Paul, claimed that 'in Christ'- the phrase Christians used to describe this new reality- there was 'neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, neither male nor female.' He is calling the entire culture into question, insisting that through this risen-from-the-dead Jesus, the whole world is being reorganized. And in this new reality, every person is equal. Everybody. Paul is the first person in the history of world literature to argue that all human beings are equal." -Rob Bell, Velvet Elvis thanks to bob hyatt
