“There is neither Jew nor Greek,
slave nor free, male nor female, for
you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
(Galatians 3:29)
“God does NOT
show favouritism,
but accepts men
from every nation.”
(ACTS 10:34-35)

should be treated so.
Everyone was created by God and therefore we are ALL EQUAL and
should have equal rights.
Christians should support and promote racial harmony.

harmony.
Jesus always treated
people in the same
way, no matter
where they were

yourself”

racial harmony.
