T 9 UNITY IN A DIVIDED AMERICA Simple Bible answers to Americas biggest problems Why do we not have unity in America today?

Because we're not all playing from the same rule book. We can't have unity based on what each person feels. But we can all have unity in what God says is right. So what divides us and what does the T bible say? 17

1. The Devaluing of Human Life. 14 Value of Human Life All mankind is made in the image of God. Genesis 1:26 Then God said, Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the

ground. E 18 15 Value of Human Life Mankind is so important that the only reason given for taking a life is to pay the debt for murder. Genesis 9:6 Whoever sheds human blood, by humans shall

their blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made mankind. S 21 16 Life is Devalued when 1.

2. 3. 4. S Murder happens. 13 Abortion happens. Suicide happens Self worth and self acceptance are not

realized. 17 Value of Human Life So a Christian believes all lives matter? T Yes We are not to take anothers life 10 But we cant do anything to save a life.

We can make every effort to prolong life, but all will die. 18 Value of Human Life Matthew 10:28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

If we prevent every murder, suicide and abortion from ever happening again, we still havent E brought a single soul the Gospel of Christ. 3 Lives cant be saved, SOULS CAN! Mark 16:15 He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, 19

What causes these problems? 1. The Devaluing of Human Life. 2. Disregard for Another's Rights and Possessions. 20 Disrespect and Disregard

Disrespect for Authority Violence towards Police Unnecessary violence by Police H 12 Romans 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same.

21 Disrespect and Disregard Disrespect for Laws Illegal immigration Romans 13:1-2 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God,

and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. W 7 22 Disrespect and Disregard Disregard for Disabled or Elderly Welfare Abuser (entitlement of the undeserving)

Lack of Compassion H 4 1 John 3:17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

23 Disrespect and Disregard Disrespect for property (or Gods Creation) Lack of environmental concern Genesis 2:15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. A 6

Rallies, marches, and occupy movements that use violence and destruction. 24 The Bible addresses all issues of equality and respect Example: Gender Equality Acts 18:2 There he met a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife

Priscilla, because Claudius had ordered all Jews to leave Rome. Paul went to see them, 3 and because he was a tentmaker as they were, he stayed and worked with them. If the apostle Paul didnt have an issue working with a man or a woman, why shouldE we? 19 25

What causes these problems? 1. The Devaluing of Human Life. 2. Disregard for Another's Rights and Possessions. 3. Partiality of Beliefs (prejudices) 26 Prejudices

Partialities and Prejudices C 16 Which would include: 1. Racial 2. Social (class) 3. Political 4. Religious 27

Laying Partialities aside for Christs cause Matthew 10:2 These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

R 2 28 G 11 Laying Partialities aside for Christs cause

Matthew 10:2 These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. The Zealots objected to Roman rule and violently sought to eliminate it by targeting Romans and Roman supporters. 29

Laying Partialities aside for Christs cause V 1 Matthew 10:2 These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and

Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. What a wonderful example how Christ can change lives and use anyone to spread the Gospel! 30 Conclusion A

5 We could have unity if all had the same standard. Respecting People in Authority 1 Peter 2:13 For the Lords sake, submit to all human authority whether the king as head of state, 14 or the officials he has appointed. For the king has sent them to punish those who do wrong and to honor those who do right. 15 It is Gods will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you. 16 For you are free, yet

you are Gods slaves, so dont use your freedom as an excuse to do evil. 17 Respect everyone, and love the family of believers. Fear God, and respect the king. 31 Conclusion As Christians, we have the greatest cause. Puzzle

Answer Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Matthew 5:13 You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 32
