1 Tim 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Tim 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Tim 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

For if a man can not rule his own house, how can he rule anything much more with the church of god.
1 Tim 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Tim 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
It is unchristian to say that you love your Children but divorced their mother.
1 John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

All Men Are Created Equal

The opening of the United States Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in 1776, states as follows:

We hold these truths to be self-evident,  that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,  that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;

The right to liberty can be found in the letter of Saint Paul to the members of the Church of God referring to the Galatians.
Gal 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called to liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 
The right to become happy is also mentioned in proverbs; for a broken spirit drieth the bones.
Prov 17:22  A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
But the right to life is something we must leave to our creator, as living without Him is vain.
Jn 6:63  It is the spirit that reviveth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Jn 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Eccles 7:15 All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness. 
In this world, life is full of calamity and the pursuit of  happiness is dependent on every individual as the Scripture says:
Jn 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in me ye may have peace. In the world ye will have tribulation, but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world.
Think of a scenario that we are all the same; same looks, same familiar faces, same status in life or same in everything. Aside from the problem of identification, who's gonna clean the toilet or the oven, or whom to pay when money is not needed? If you have money, you can let somebody work for you. If not then work for that money. 

So we are not created equal after all,  though in God, we are all the same by faith in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:26 For ye are all children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:29 And if ye are Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
But as the saying goes; The money is with a man, but the truth is, many man has no money. Learn the secret of happiness which is contentment.
Heb 13:5 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have; for he has said, "I will never fail you nor forsake you."
Phil 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

  1. Good writing. I just want to share my insight about this topic. Naturally, man is truly equal. God created man inn His own image and likeness but we are all have uniqueness in some point. God has a beautiful plan for us (Jeremiah 29:11)but we, people are making their own routes in life; and that's what makes people different for one another. Want to be more inspired and blessed?
