-__________ (fill in the label you think you are)

What does exist are people, human beings.

We are all related whether your religion, your country, your identity or your "leader" agrees or not.

The religion of science also concedes to the fact of a single family genome.

People existed BEFORE any of the termed categories were made up.

Shall we be divided by the things that people make up for themselves?

What are we, then?

I am [a] _________. (what you label yourself unites or divides you)

Since we are in fact related, then we're family.

Unfortunately, some do not believe this, or have a difficult time looking past their specific identity and accepting the humanity of their distant relatives.

Yet, despite disbelief or refusal to accept another human being, we are in fact all children.

And though we are all children, sadly some of us, due to unbelief and resistance in joining a loving family, remove themselves from the family.

They cannot see past their pride.

Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God—children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

- John 1: 12-13
