There is little place in this world to those who aren't overtly the same. The obese, the anorexic, the religious zealot or the deformed will all attract attention. Attention that is welcoming, condescending, or simply indifferent.
Eternally implanted within each is the desire for similarity, which brings safety and acceptance. This is of God. God wanted people to be like Him, that is why we are created in His image. People desire to be around others too that are similar.
God is currently acting towards this goal of similarity in my life. This is an eternally wonderful thing for me. His new heaven has the dissimilar removed.
"Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood." Rev 22:14-15
Those who are conformed to His Son only can apply.
