#Broken and #equality

Can we just start with the acknowledgment that we are, each and every one of us, broken in some way.

We are each broken, there is no perfect way of being or living life.

There are tools: things that help, but they aren’t fixes. Intelligence, Wealth, Fame, even good Family Structures and Faith are supports that help and structure.
However, somehow, humans think that there is an inherent inequality in society. That some of us are more blessed than others, that those who are rich or famous or smarter somehow earned that status. This idea that some humans are better than other leads to problems         Problems like: Idolizing people, Expecting Perfection (from Self and Others), Let the judging begin.          When Christians Hold themselves as perfect, they miss the very justice-making, radical equality and love that Christ embodies
