For example “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28) According to the verse the Bible doesn’t discriminate against race, status, or gender. Yet there are verses that seem to rebut everything I said above. So my point is, you shouldn’t be taking everything in the bible too literally, sometimes they could be just be a symbol for something
