Respect in the Bible: James 2:1-9
In this passage, James expressly forbids Christians to show favoritism to the wealthy, or to treat anyone differently than anyone else. The command to "love your neighbor" doesn't distinguish between different "types" of neighbor--which means that Christians are called to treat everyone with equal respect and love.


Prejudice in the Bible - a Christian perspective
Christians shouldn't discriminate against anyone. This passage reprimands those who would treat somebody differently due to their social status or wealth. The church should be a refuge from sinful prejudice, not a practitioner of it.
