ANSWER: It DOESN’T, God didn’t say that, Abraham Lincoln did.

Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood. An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

NOTE: The Bible says that men are created equal; only in the sense that:

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

and that CHRIST DIED FOR ALL AND ALL HAVE AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY FOR SALVATION.

John 6:35-37 Then Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

NOTE: God is no respector of persons; if one rejects Christ, regardless of his position, he will not escape the judgment of God.

II Chronicles 19:7 Wherefore now let the fear of the Lord be upon you; take heed and do it; for there is no iniquity with the Lord our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.

Acts 10:34-35 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

Ephesians 6:8-9 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.

Colossians 3:25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

I Peter 1:17-19 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

Romans 2:5-11 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God.

Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

Deuteronomy 1:17 Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.

Deuteronomy 10:17-19 For the Lord your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Deuteronomy 16:19 Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.

Deuteronomy 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

II Kings 14:6 But the children of the murderers he slew not: according unto that which is written in the book of the law of Moses, wherein the LORD commanded, saying,

The fathers shall not be put to death for the children,

nor the children be put to death for the fathers;

but every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

II Chronicles 25:4 But he slew not their children, but did as it is written in the law in the book of Moses, where the LORD commanded, saying,

The fathers shall not die for the children,

neither shall the children die for the fathers,

but every man shall die for his own sin.

The following caricature of the modern welfare state from the «Saratose Herald-Tribune» is an amusing parody of the well-known story of «The Little Red Hen.»

THE LITTLE RED HEN

Once upon a time there was a little red hen which scratched about and uncovered some grains of wheat. She called her barnyard neighbors and said, «If we work together and plant this wheat, we shall have some fine bread to eat. Who will help me plant the wheat?»

«Not I,» said the cow.
«Not I,» said the duck.
«Not I,» said the pig.
«Not I,» said the goose.

«Then I will,» said the little red hen. And she did.

After the wheat started growing, the ground turned dry and there was no rain in sight.

«Who will help me water the wheat?» said the little red hen.

«Not I,» said the cow.
«Not I,» said the duck.
«Not I,» said the pig.
«Not I,» said the goose.

«Then I will,» said the little red hen. And she did.

The wheat grew tall and ripened into golden grain.

«Who will help me reap the wheat?» asked the little red hen.

«Not I, said the cow.
«Not I, said the duck.
«Out of my classification,» said the pig.
«I’d lose my ADC,» said the goose.

«Then I will» said the little red hen. And she did.

When it came time to grind the wheat into flour, the little red hen asked,

«Who will help me grind the wheat into flour?»

«Not I,» said the cow.

«I’d lose my unemployment compensation,» said the duck.

When it came time to bake the bread,

«That’s overtime for me,» said the cow.

«I’m a drop-out and never learned how,» said the duck.

«I’d lose my welfare benefits,» said the pig.

«If I’m the only one helping, that’s discrimination,» said the goose.

«Then I will,» said the little red hen. And she did.

She baked five loaves of fine bread and held them up for her neighbors to see.

«I want some,» said the cow.
«I want some,» said the duck.
«I want some,» said the pig.
«I want some,» said the goose.

«No,» said the little red hen. «I can rest for a while and eat the five loaves myself.»

«Excess profits!» cried the cow.
«Capitalistic leech!» screamed the duck.
«Company fink!» grunted the pig.
«Equal rights!» honked the goose.

And they hurriedly painted picket signs and marched around the little red hen, singing, «We shall overcome.» And they did.

When the farmer came to investigate the commotion, he said, «You must not be greedy, little red hen. Look at the oppressed cow. Look at the underprivileged pig. Look at the disadvantaged duck. Look at the less fortunate goose. You are guilty of making second-class citizens of them!»

«But … but … but,» clucked the little red hen,» I earned the bread.»

«Exactly,» exclaimed the wise farmer. «That’s the wonderful free enterprise system! Anybody in the barnyard can earn as much as he wants. You should be happy to have this freedom! In other barnyards, you would have to give all five loaves to the farmer. Here, you give four loaves to your suffering neighbors.»

And they lived happily ever after, including the little red
hen. She smiled and clucked, «I am grateful!»

But her neighbors wondered why she never baked any more bread.

Are we passionately pursuing Pied Piper to the mountain of promise where all men will soon bo so equal, that, whether or not we «scratch,» we all will have as much right as the little red hen to one of her loaves?
