Do you believe there are people who are "beneath" you? Why or why not?
I suppose the answer to this question would depend upon who you ask. If you are a person who has experienced the ups and downs that life has to offer and gutted it out in the trenches with hard working folks, then such a question would appear silly to them(Us). Ask the same question to someone who has been given everything in life and "born with the silver spoon in their mouth", then the answer might be a resounding yes! To get a good example of this, just relate to the political races and participants, and you can see first hand, just who is a down to earth guy or gal, and who lives in a fantasy world of wealth and power.if a leader is to be all that he or she can be, would not being able to identify, make the better candidate in most cases? My answer would be no, I do not believe that there are people beneath me, but I will leave that judgement up to the Man Upstairs and keep on keeping on.
The word "beneath" carries a lot of meeting. Because someone has less education or a lower IQ does not put them beneath me. Because someone has different views, does not put him beneath me.
I do not know if I have the right to say that someone is beneath me. That is not my judgment to make.
Hitler--was he mentally ill, misguided or something else. What he did is beneath the standards of all decency and all that is right. Do I have the right to say he is beneath me.
I think I will leave that decision to a higher authority who is definitely above me in all matters.
wild question but, I'll answer it. never. for every one is a PRODUCT OF THERE ENVIRONMENT. and who am I to look down on anyone
No one is more important than another. Sure there are some people with more authority, but that has to do with their jobs. If you take away all material possessions and jobs, you're just left with your mind, thoughts, and ideas. No one's opinion is better than another's. People can be stupid, arrogant, and ignorant, but that doesn't make them less of a person.
I am better than plenty of people. I have been through the worst but I will never say that I am equal to a child abuser, rapist, drug dealer who neglects his children to make a profit, and so on. Everyone in the world is better than someone, that is just a fact of life. Anyone who believes that we are all on the same level is delusional or hasn't thought it through.
I don't believe people are born beneath you. We are all born the same. We make good or bad choices, we get ahead or fall behind; but we are the same.
Go to the graveyard and see if the dead has any ups and downs, You may have been born with a silver spoon in your mouth, but at to God , you will join the long line of folks that will have nothing more to do in life.
If you think someone is under you, don't you walk the same, eat the same and sleep the same? We are all God's children and we all must give an account to the Father of all. The rich, the poor, the up and the down.
No, we are all sinners (me too!) and in need of a Saviour!
They say that before you judge someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. But what if your feet are bigger than theirs, or smaller? None of us can really know what it feels like to be anyone else, none of us has a right to judge, none of us has a right to say that we are 'beneath' or 'above' someone or something in that matter...
The problem with us, humans is that we like to categorize according to strength, wealth, mental or physical attributes...or other superficial attributes that take our fancy. Until we stop categorizing we can not fully appreciate the world around us as a whole, we can not live in harmony with ourselves, others and natural world around us....
Humans, as the most advanced form of life on Earth are not here to exterminate weaker species (their fellow humans or natural world around them)
or live in the lap of luxury at the expense of 'lesser' creatures, but rather use their skills, their mind, body and spirit to maintain our Planet and life in it....

Why do people ask God related questions if they already have an answer?I see a lot of questions, not only in HubPages but also around the web about science related topics like evolution or if you believe this why don't you believe in God? Then when someone provides an answer, even when this answer...
