In this post-modern world of political correctness and the worshipping of diversity, the notion of people being “unequal” is frowned upon. A worldview that seeks to level the playing field for all humankind is based on a strong sense of justice and compassion.
Those who share this belief have their hearts in the right place but remain blind to the truth of the matter.
What this “enlightened” and “progressive” worldview misses is that treating people equally never produces equal results.
For instance, God loves everyone equally. Yet, not everyone returns the favor with an equal measure of enthusiasm or thankfulness (towards God or the neighbor).
Even if you are an atheist, when you treat people equally you cannot expect them all to reciprocate equally.
Let’s even explore how people differ in treating people equally, that is, doing good things for others. As humans, this endeavor of “doing good,” called love of kind is universally known and understood. However, some people do GOOD from a pureness of heart, others from obedience, still others seek merit and reputation. Finally, there are those who do good deeds from a hypocritical motivation and want deceive others from knowing their true intentions (hidden agendas).
In each of the examples given above, people are equally doing “good” for others yet their hearts are in quite different places. These different “places” represent the different qualities of people’s hearts, which is the true measure of their spirit. Therefore, when one sheds his or her physical body after death and becomes a pure spiritual being, do you still think they can share the same spiritual realities and live in the same spiritual environment?
For this reason, heaven or hell cannot be the same for everyone! Love is hierarchical. There is spiritual love, civil love, worldly love and self-love. One is “higher” than the others according to how sincerely inclusive and universal it is. Hatred has a similar order of distinct or hierarchical degrees.
The rejection of hierarchies is based on political abuses of power. But these abuses are human transgressions from proper universal laws—not from any inherent defect in the divine hierarchical scheme and gravitational order that rules over all things participating in a world of dynamic process and flux.
In God’s universe, all things become distinct and differentiated according to the degree that they promote unity. This explains nature’s incessant drive towards self-organization. This endeavor towards self-organization continues in the human mind, which arranges its thoughts and ideas according to values. The organization of the physical human body and the organization of the non-physical human mind are distinct and hierarchical. One outcome is genetic fate, the other is free choice and leads to our eternal destiny.
That is cosmic justice.
