Different Is Good

If we were all the same, it would be a shame...

One of the numerous alarm-triggers for those who are aware of what is really going on in the world is anything that 'celebrates' a particular sub-section of humanity or 'deplores' anything that can be portrayed as affording one section of humanity an advantage over another. The latter in particular is easily manipulated by those with an agenda of their own.

The reality is, of course, that we were indeed created to be different from each other, but that none of us was created to be any 'higher' or 'lower' than any other – although that doesn't mean we should deny that some were always destined for higher things than the rest of us.

As someone who has been genuinely privileged to have spent some time within one of the 'higher calling' areas of human activity, I can well appreciate that – but it never placed me 'higher' (as such) than anyone else: better informed sometimes, yes, but that was just about the limit. It is always valuable to keep that in mind, by the way, when serving a community: trust me, I've been there, and never forgot that.

The flip-side, though, is seen with those seeking to use (abuse?) a particular characteristic to manufacture a so-called dividing line – something in which James (a.k.a. 'Gordon') Brown specialised, as has been widely reported in recent years.

As is usually the case, a look at the motivations behind this is perhaps the most illuminating. The separation of sections of our society and pitching them against each other is and always was intended to encourage social unrest and ultimately civil disorder. I have covered this before in regard to the Frankfurt School policies that were enacted under 'New' Labour, so this is nothing new or surprising.

The reality is that we were created different from each other for very good reasons. The Bible gives us tremendous insight into this in 1 Corinthians chapter 12...
14 And indeed the body consists not of one member but of many.
15 If the foot were to say, 'I am not a hand and so I do not belong to the body,' it does not belong to the body any the less for that.
16 Or if the ear were to say, 'I am not an eye, and so I do not belong to the body,' that would not stop its belonging to the body.
17 If the whole body were just an eye, how would there be any hearing? If the whole body were hearing, how would there be any smelling?
18 As it is, God has put all the separate parts into the body as he chose.
19 If they were all the same part, how could it be a body?
20 As it is, the parts are many but the body is one.
21 The eye cannot say to the hand, 'I have no need of you,' and nor can the head say to the feet, 'I have no need of you.'

All obvious enough when one thinks about it; but it does remind us that we should be celebrating our differences and our complementarity. Instead, the Lefties abuse this whole concept in pursuance of their own corrupt agenda that seeks to find ways to pitch one group against another (as history has shown, by the way).

The choice for all of us here is clear-cut: we can either follow that path of Labour and the Left, or we can learn from the Creator's own teachings and raise our game. The two are mutually exclusive, so one cannot play it both ways. Which way will you choose?
