Favoritism? Favouritism?

God is Impartial

For God does NOT show favoritism.” (Romans 2:11)

A “reward” for a believer during His reign in the Kingdom of God is due to the “faith & works” (merit) which a ‘believer’ has done “in Him” (it’s NOT a ‘preferential treatment’ or a ‘hak istimewa’ but ‘reaping what ‘you’ve sowed’ accordingly).

That’s all.

There is “no” partiality with God and neither can we ‘practice favouritism’ as commanded here:

But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.” (James 2:9)

Yup, the verse above also clearly “prohibits” any type of ‘favoritism’ even toward ‘fellow Christians’ by us.

I often wonder, ‘Which Bible do these guys read?’ (those who teach otherwise)

Remember, there’s “no” favoritism even in “punishment” as it’s written:

Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.” (Colossians 3:25)


My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with (an attitude of personal) favoritism.” (James 2:1)


I repeat,

Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism” (Acts 10:34)

Is He (God) not the One who says to kings, ‘You are worthless,’
and to nobles, ‘You are wicked,’” (Job 34:18) and the subsequent verse continues,

Who (God) shows no partiality to princes Nor regards the rich above the poor, For they all are the work of His hands?” (Job 34:19)
