Prejudice without God

Prejudice without God
When reading the article on Prejudice I really could not relate. I myself am a strong believer in God, fate, and faith. Jaucourt is relying on man made facts but who then made man. If we evolved who created the chimpanzee we evolved from. When you have nothing positive or a higher power to look up to it’s difficult to give concrete evidence on the how, when and where. How can we have prejudice when there is no belief in a higher and greater power of God.
The mind I see as being a well crafted gift from God. The mind goes astray in prejudice due to the fact that we as sinful beings allow the thought of another power to over power us and our actions. We are giving freedom of chose by God himself. Prejudice is what we view it as it can be a mirror where we see monsters if we allow the devil to become the person who holds the power.
God is a man of no errors. Things happen because of his will and purpose not because it is a thousand popular error as Jancourt states. A passneger who is trapped and that ask to be saved, can be but only by the grace of God. It is not because he makes a plea bargain with God. It is because God has a plan for that particular individual and he sees fit to leave that person upon this earth to complete their purpose. No man can say or present a false plea or barbarous because God knows the sincerity of the person’s plea.
We as people understand and confront that fact that there is a true and living God, Jancourt’s view on prejudice can be null and void. The world is made of different creatures with different views. Yes Jancourt had a point when he said that all is uniform in the course of nature. He fail to see that it is not the divine plan on but of God. God has his own personal of creating plans. Nature and humans act only because of the almighty God.

I like that you are honest in your blog about not being able to relate. I am a strong believer in God as well; therefore, I agree with a lot of what you have to say. I like that you are passionate about your beliefs and you are not afraid to let that show in your blog. Before you post I would check and make sure that all of your words are spelled correctly. It looks like you were just typing fast and forgot to do spell check, etc. Good job Ü
