We spent a good deal of time on Chapter 5 “On Voting.” But there were a few words on our culture’s determination to DIE. Which is taken from Diversity Inclusion and Equality, or Equity. Which is Chapter 11, “Can’t We All Get Along?”
As I’ve said many times, Equality was the first sin, and it will be the last. It comes and goes, fades and strengthens in time. Now it is believed with an ardor stronger than a scientist touting his model to a grant review board.
It’s most bizarrely believed in this thing called academic Christian theology. Yes, prefixing “academic” to any word is enough to damn it in most cases. In this case, too.
However Equality to be believed in Christian circles is a question I don’t have an answer to. Perhaps some of you know. But that it came to be believed is remarkable, because it is nowhere supported in scripture itself.
In a nice coincidence, here was the second reading from yesterday (1 Cor 12:4-11).
Brothers and sisters:
There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;
there are different forms of service but the same Lord;
there are different workings but the same God
who produces all of them in everyone.
To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit
is given for some benefit.
To one is given through the Spirit the expression of wisdom;
to another, the expression of knowledge according to the
to another, faith by the same Spirit;
to another, gifts of healing by the one Spirit;
to another, mighty deeds;
to another, prophecy;
to another, discernment of spirits;
to another, varieties of tongues;
to another, interpretation of tongues.
But one and the same Spirit produces all of these,
distributing them individually to each person as he wishes.
Whatever the opposite of Equality is, this is it.
