I Call It “Injustice”

There is a place on earth where one group of people is considered “born to rule,” and another “born to serve.”

These groups are established solely on the basis of one biological trait.

This trait has nothing to do with intelligence, integrity or the capacity to lead.

Where there is disagreement, the will of the ruling class always prevails.

The servant class is required to “submit” and “obey.”

The ruling class claims to rule by divine right.

They reserve the exclusive right to interpret and teach from their sacred texts.

They sometimes call themselves God’s prophets, priests and kings.

The ruling class is called “men.”

The servant class is called “women.”

Some people call this place “church.”

I am not one of those people.

I call it “injustice,” wrongly attributed to God.

“The LORD promotes equity and justice; the LORD’s faithfulness extends throughout the earth.” (Psalm 33:5, NET)

“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28, NIV)

“Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ.” (Matthew 23:10, NASB)
