You are not outside the wall

A wall implies division—someone in, someone out. The Apostle Paul speaks of Christ Jesus as having "broken down the middle wall of partition." Eph. 2:14;

In this biblical citation Paul was actually referring to the Jewish temple, in which the inner court, open only to Jews, was divided by a wall from the outer court, to which Gentile visitors might be admitted. Isn't there a parallel here to our many other modes of divided thinking? Human thought tends to categorize people and then to divide the haves from the have-nots, the educated from the illiterate, the old from the young, the sick from the healthy—the list seems endless.
