Ephesians 2:11-14

11 Remember that you were once people of the nations in the flesh. You are called uncircumcision by that which is called circumcision, in the flesh, made by human hands. 12 You were separate from Christ at that time, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel. You were strangers from the covenants of the promise. You had no hope and were without God in the world. 13 You were once far off but now with Christ Jesus, the blood of Christ has brought you near. 14 For he is our peace, who made both (Jews and Gentiles) one, and broke down the middle barrier of partition.

Colossians 3:11

11 There is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bondman, freeman; but Christ is all and in all.

In the image of God he created him. He created male and female.

James 2:1-26

1 My brothers, keep the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. Do not favor one person over the other. 2 A man wearing a gold ring and fine clothes and a poor man in shabby clothes comes into your synagogue. 3 You pay special attention to the one wearing the fine clothes, and say: »Sit here in a good place.« Then you say to the poor man: »Stand there,« or »Sit under my footstool.« 4 Do not make distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts. 5 Listen, my dearly beloved brothers! Did God choose poor people in the world to be rich in faith and to receive the kingdom he promised to those who love him? 6 You have dishonored the poor man. Do the rich oppress you, and personally drag you into court? 7 Do they blaspheme the honorable name by which you are called? 8 When you fulfill the royal law according to the scripture: »You shall love your neighbor as yourself,« you do well. 9 But when you show partiality you commit sin. The law then convicts you as transgressors. 10 Whoever obeys the whole law and yet stumbles in one point is guilty of breaking all of it. 11 For he who said: »Do not commit adultery,« also said: »Do not murder« (Greek: phoneuo: kill, slay, murder). Now if you do not commit adultery, but you commit murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 12 You should speak and act as men who are to be judged by a law of liberty. 13 For judgment is without mercy to him who shows no mercy. And mercy triumphs over judgment. 14 What good is it, my brothers, if a man says he has faith but he does not have works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is without clothes and in lack of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them: »Go in peace, be warmed and filled;« and yet you do not give them food and clothing, what good is it? 17 Even so, faith without works is dead. It is alone and by itself! 18 A man will say: »You have faith and I have works. Show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.« 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well: the demons also believe, and shudder. 20 Are you willing to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is useless (barren) (lifeless)? 21 Was Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar? 22 You see that faith acted with his works, and works made faith perfect (complete). 23 The scripture was fulfilled which says: »Abraham believed Jehovah and it was reckoned (imputed) (considered) (credited) to him for righteousness.« He was called »Jehovah’s friend« (Genesis 15:6) ( Isaiah 41:8). 24 You see that a man is justified (declared and pronounced righteous) by works, and not by faith alone. 25 Rahab the harlot was justified by her works. When she received the messengers she sent them out another way. 26 Just as the body without the spirit is dead; even so faith without works is dead.

1 Samuel 16:7

7 But Jehovah said to Samuel: »Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature. I have rejected him. God does not see as man sees. Man looks at the outward appearance. Jehovah looks at the heart (inner man).«

Matthew 7:1

1 »Stop judging, so that you will not be judged.

Galatians 3:28

28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one (united) in Christ Jesus. (John 17:21) (Ephesians 4:4-6)
