“We see that in many conservative pastors who are helping lead the way to fix our broken immigration system. It’s not what would be expected from them, and yet they recognize, in those immigrant families, the face of God.”

Thank goodness the President believes we need to end divisive rhetoric. Imagine what he would say if he was partisan.

You look better than the face of God
On a funny day
And I don't mind
I can feel it now

I believe in Deuteronomy, when Moses is placed in the cleft of the rock, it says something about not being able to view the face of God and live. Also, if we are indeed made in His image, it stands to reason He has a face.

In Dueteronomy, or Exodus, a few lines later it talks about Moses speaking with God face-to-face. I think it has to do with the mixed sources of the Elohists and the Yahwists. I think "face of God" is meant to be allegorical.

Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up the road, some youths came from the city and mocked him, and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” So he turned around and looked at them, and pronounced a curse on them in the name of the LORD. And two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.

2 Kings 2:23-24 NKJV

and the hebrew word for these "youths" caries the sense of a savage gang....

I thought we had covered this ground before?

"and those (parts) of the body, which we think to be less honorable, upon these we bestow more abundant honor; and our uncomely (parts) have more abundant comeliness; whereas our comely (parts) have no need: but God tempered the body together, giving more abundant honor to that (part) which lacked."

1 Corinthians 12:23

But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it, that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.


^^^^^^^^^^^ also from the 1 Cor. 12

all to say we all have a role and are important...

know your role!!!

You have no comely parts. Your parts are uncomely.

Yes, but that's directly from God's mouth to my ears.

So it's okay.
