Equal before God

I thought the following cartoon was poignant, and it has nothing to do with politics.

The only addition/correction I would make to it would be to note that one doesn’t have to be a corporate executive to qualify for the result. This particular cartoonist has a leftist slant, so to him a corporate executive was the perfect example. But you could substitute others who believe they have entitlements: film stars, congressmen, media moguls. Then, of course, there are the run-of-the-mill sinners who simply believe that because they’ve done some “good” things, they are entitled to enter.

Jesus, though, was perfectly clear about this: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”

That applies to corporate executives, middle management, and all those who have to answer to them. We all stand as equals before God. Being rich and famous doesn’t help, but neither does being poor and unknown. He shows no favoritism.
