Today we are caught up in a culture of words. Every new program is entitled such to hide the real meaning and intended result of a program. Every slogan, book title, movie title, is now agenda driven, and words are weapons in a political and philosophical war; all to keep from having to recognize the God of the Bible.
Diversity, inclusion, and tolerance, are all used to achieve the opposite of what the understanding of the words were meant to illustrate. Tolerance as taught is not tolerance, for Christianity is not tolerated, nor is truth. Inclusion is taught so as to have all forms of deviancy and abnormal behavior included as normal and acceptable. Diversity is used to promote the discrimination that it claims to stop.
Why is this so? The agenda behind this labeling is to teach a new ethic that jettisons all moral values. The teaching is to shame and ostracize those that do not agree with the new norm of moral relativism. Here is a portion of a letter from one friend to another friend. These two friends had gone through a doctoral program at NYU together…a program that was made up of only these two friends. One felt strongly about the new belief system of moral relativism and one had remained true to the true understanding of the meaning of diversity, inclusion, and tolerance.
“So frankly I cannot approve of your politics and maintain my own personal integrity as a global citizen. I apologize if this sounds hurtful as I do have a tender spot for you. I feel as if we grew up together in a certain sense - bumping into the sharp edges within this rabbit hole called NYU. I fondly remember the steps we traveled together; I am grateful for the company at the time; and I wish you well in the future.”
This person decided that since her friend held to a belief in a moral value system she could no longer maintain any relationship. This reply demonstrates that her new found belief system did not have inclusion, there was no diversity of thought, and nothing would be tolerated outside of her new belief system. What an inhumane letter, and yet she felt that she was perfectly correct in her action; blinded by the fact that her letter to her friend contained nothing that she supposedly believed in.
Could the Bible describe this type of thinking any clearer than in Romans1.21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools…
