Last week we began to look into whether or not God is biased. The working definition we used was, “An inclination that prevents an unprejudiced consideration of a matter.” Why is this question an important enough matter to continue with this week? Think about it – if God were to be biased, then by definition he would be making His judgments and decisions based on a prejudiced perspective. Would you trust a God whose basis of operation was not squarely built upon justice, wisdom and love? Stay with us as we continue our examination of what the Bible tells us about the character of God – this time focusing on the New Testament and the eternal reasons that God has for allowing our race to go through such difficulties.
Have you ever been in a situation, perhaps as a kid where you observed someone getting special treatment? Maybe it was that kid in school who seemed to get extra privileges or your brother or sister being treated differently than you? Remember how that made you kind of mad? Remember when you got some special treatment but that was different because YOU deserved it! Have you ever observed prejudice in action? We live in a time of excessive sensitivity to these things. When we look at the Almighty God, do we see any of these things? Do we see Him playing favorites? Treating one people differently from another people? Stay with us as we dive right into this question and seek to understand what and why God chooses whom He does. Is God biased?
