Cvil Rights in a Biblical perspective

With all that America has dealt with in these past two years I think it is about time a teenager speaks out for social justice and the root of it all. I will start by saying since the fall of man after Adam sinned that was when social injustice started. It exists and throughout history shows itself. People were enslaved. In the Roman Empire those who were POWs became slaves along with debtors, criminals, and such. Going on.. Even before the European settlers came here, North America had slaves.. Groups like the Aztec empire enslaved people to work for them. Going into colonial times till 1860s, America had slavery as part of their life. After the Civil War it finally fell but discrimination existed well into the 1970s. Women had little rights also but over time, especially after the Women’s rights movement, women had the same rights and were able to do almost everything a man can do. However, slowly evil begain to creep into movements like the Women’s Rights movement. Specifically when the Roe. V. Wade case was decided.
Did Jesus care for all humanity and treat women the same as men? I would say yes.  He cared about both men and women and children and everyone? According to Matthew 8 that seems to be the case, and that is just one example. However, Jesus cared about children too: Luke 18:17,Matthew 19:14. Considering this and along with the fact a fetus is a child that is a issue for certain aspects of women’s rights today. Cause women who do abortions kill their children and are no better than a person who stabs their newborn child. Also, women’s rights has gotten to the point that it really has become a fight for power on who is the head of the house or church sometimes. First Timothy 2:11-12 “ A woman should learn in quietness and full submission I do not permit a woman to teach or assume authority over a man. She must be quiet.” considering this, it is not ok for a woman to cross the line and take over household and church! Now I will quickly sum up all these new ideas about rights such as LGBTQ rights. They are unbiblical and you can’t be born gay I am running out of space so I will save that for another time. For now I will quote what the Bible says: Leviticus 18:22 “ Do not practice homosexuality, having  sex with another man as with another woman. It is a detestable sin.” So to sum things up: True social justice will never come till Jesus comes back and everything is made pure, and some forms of social justice are not social justice at all!.
