Matthew 25:31-46 Jesus explains the parable of the sheep and goats. The sheep actively partook in the ministry of social justice while the goats did nothing. It is the sheep that God wants and not goats.

I think many times throughout the rich history in the bible we see how God has used torn, tattered and sinful persons to experience his divine love and mercy to change. They have become a living example of God’s mercy. Once they have recognized this, they have become mighty persons within the framework in the role God intended for his creations. His children are to be the instruments in society to reflect the divine peace God offers.

Many times in our own present day lives when someone; family, friends, acquaintances, or even people in our community, have exhibited signs of adulterous, murderous, fraudulent actions, we are too quick in judging them. In some ways we strive to banish them from our sight. While I am not saying we should forgive and forget, as we see from Jesus, we are to honor the laws of the land. But to simply rid from our awareness these persons, we should seek ways to positively minister to them. They should have the same opportunity for spiritual awareness that our saints and church history has seen in the bible. We need to show them God’s mercy. After all, where would we be in our church history if we simply denied Peter, Moses, David, etc…because of their previous unenlightened actions? Even in James 2:1 it says that we must not be prejudice. We can’t simply favor some people over others. Furthermore verses 2-9 James gives us a parable to live by as Christians changed by the mysteries of Christ.“2For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: 4Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? 5Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? 6But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? 7Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called? 8If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: 9But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.”

Master christ

An anciet rending of the Master Christ.

God is not about shunning nor evicting one of their birthright. You may ask what birthright I am speaking of. Are we not created in the image of God? Are we not all physical manifestations of the creative spark from God? Then if we throw away a person because of their actions without attempting to reach out to them with the redemptive power of God, then we are denying them of their birthright as one of God’s children. When a Buddhist monk greets another person, they typically bow with their hands in a praying state and say“Namaste”. Which translates to“The God within me recognizes the God within you.”This is a wonderful translation as to how we should greet every human being.

There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
yes that's correct
I think
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.
