Reconciling Diversity

"There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28).

A couple of years ago, I became aware of a Christian school that was instituting a Diversity Committee, partially in response to the recent events of the summer of 2020 (e.g., BLM movement). Red flags immediately flew up in my mind: I know the word "diversity" is catchy today and it seems to signal wisdom - but wait.

Christian Nationalism?

As best as I can figure, "Christian nationalism" is a term used to inflict guilt upon Christians who believe that God should be central in American politics and social life.

It is no secret that many in our country don't actually like our country. On the contrary, they are trying to destroy it by defaming, defacing, and eradicating references to God, faith, and freedom. American liberalism views those who hold to traditional values and truths as dangerous racists and fascists. These labels (name-calling), like Christian nationalism, are used by liberals to intimidate traditionalists who want America to be like the founding father's intended: a government, though imperfect, that was established by God and exists for God to do justice for all.
