(rarely do I post the same on both my blogs but this one clearly is appropriate for both!)
Everywhere you turn, everywhere you work,
the cry is for “diversity”. The idea is that differences enrich life.
After all, God made people different shades and with differing personalities.
He made nature and space with a sizzling array of designs, shapes, and
colors. Who can argue that?
However, some time ago, there was a huge
move to say there is no absolute truth. That there is no right way. That each
man should believe and think and do what is right is his own eyes. That
is chaos. There is right and wrong. There is a right way and a wrong way
to treat women. Sharia is the wrong way. Period. There is a right
way and a wrong way to treat Christ. The right way is that he is the only
eternal Son of God who fully displayed the attributed of the Father in human
form here on earth where we live. The wrong way is to dismiss him with
the sops that he was a good teacher and a prophet. That really bugs home – If
you really believe that, why don’t you do anything he says Why don’t you
believe in hell when he talked so much about it? Why are you not quaking in
your boots about his prophecies for the future?
Diversity as practiced puts unbelievers as
members of the same church as believers – that cannot be – it happens in
institutions, of course, but not in the mysterious Body of Christ. It happens
in the workplace – you get people who are in it for themselves and not for the
good of the company. Having hard works and laggards may be diverse but not
helpful. There needs to be unity of purpose –not simply having
different people. When I was in school, they had five tracks based
upon your academic ability. There was no comparison between the work we
got in the top tracks vs. the much easier work in the easier ones. Those
who were not as disciplined in their thinking pushed for academic diversity –
not a good idea. Those at the bottom got no better while those at the top
slipped precipitously into mediocrity.
Diversity in marriage is hailed – I have a
diverse marriage, if the shade of one’s skin is the only criterion.
However, I married a Spirit-filled Christian woman, which is not diverse from
me except I am a man, of course. I have NOTHING in common with a sinner
and to marry one is not only against the Bible, it is stupid! One of us
may be more computer-friendly and the other more poetic, and diversities like
that are fine, but if two people view Christ, the Bible, and core Christian
doctrines differently, they are in for deep heartache.
Oddly enough, the end result of diversity is
not really diversity. Rather it is total uniformity! If you know God, you
know that it is ANYTHING OR ANYBODY BUT JESUS. Any deity is fine as
long as it is not Jesus. No one blasphemes any so-called God – they ONLY
blaspheme Jesus! You can believe anything you want about homosexuality as
long as you are FOR it and treat it as EQUAL or SUPERIOR to God’s design.
It is insanity. Look at human bodies – homosexuality is a deep perversion
of the obvious intent for our lives. You are FORBIDDEN to say that
Jesus is the only way to God, but you can say that Islam is the only
way! You are not to persecute anyone, but CHRISTIANS are not fit to
live or have any rights whatsoever! You can promote ANY religion but the
only true one in schools and other public venues! You can promote any person of
any ethnicity or color EXCEPT the white male, who is obviously responsible for
every single one of the world’s ills! The blatant racism and
bigotry in this movement is extreme. I believe that is why they love to
call everyone a racist – they are deep racists themselves and believe everyone
else must be as well!
The diversity movement has proven itself to
be intolerant to its core of anyone who diverges from their cold, atheistic,
statist orthodoxy. I oppose it totally – the brainwashing, the
stereotyping, the divisiveness, the hypocrisy, the holier-than-thou attitudes.
What I DO embrace in the unity of all
blood-washed saints of all shades, nationalities, economic and educational
levels, and both genders operating in Biblical fashion according to the plans
of God. That trumps the pagan diversity agenda, which is merely a
temporary tool towards uniformity of thought against our Lord and against his
