“I even bear with people who subscribe to a certain level of kinism, though I think it’s ignorant and unbiblical.
I think this guy is probably a do-nothing loser idealist. Perhaps, you know him in real life and that’s not the case. Great. But guys like him will never like guys like me. I have no patience for dopes.”
Rev. Michael Foster
I wouldn’t expect anything associated with the CREC (or any other Reformed denomination for that matter) to speak any differently about Kinism. If this era has any watchword, our watchword would have to be picked as among,
2.) Stupid (Calvin’s favorite word)
Kinism is ignorant and unbiblical?
Yeah … I’ve often thought that Augustine was ignorant and unbiblical. Haven’t you?
Difference of race or condition or sex is indeed taken away by the unity of faith, but it remains imbedded in our mortal interactions, and in the journey of this life the apostles themselves teach that it is to be respected, and they even proposed living in accord with the racial differences between Jews and Greeks as a wholesome rule.
St. Augustine on Galatians 3:28
“Since one cannot help everyone one has to be concerned with those who by reason of place, time, or circumstances, are by some chance more tightly bound to you.”
And of course, Calvin was an absolute Moron also,
“…. delightful to every one is his native soil, and it is also delightful to dwell among one’s own people.”
Calvin’s Commentary – Jeremiah 9:2
“… one thing is perfectly plain—whether or not liberals are Christians, it is at any rate perfectly clear that liberalism is not Christianity. And that being the case, it is highly undesirable that liberalism and Christianity should continue to be propagated within the bounds of the same organization. A separation between the two parties in the Church is the crying need of the hour… The modern liberal doctrine is that all men everywhere, no matter what their race or creed, are brothers.”
(J. Gresham Machen, Christianity and Liberalism, p.133)
I have a gazillion quotes like this from the centuries. There has been a whole 600-page anthology written with these kinds of quotes proving that Christians throughout the centuries are what we are calling today, “Kinists.” I tire easily any more with providing quotes to the indefeasibly ignorant clergy like Rev. Michael Foster who demonstrates that he doesn’t know what the hell he is talking about when he says that Kinism is unbiblical and ignorant. The obtuseness of such a statement puts all of Church history in the dock so that he can play prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner. I no longer have time for those who would prefer to trace their intellectual history to Marx, Lenin, and Engels as opposed to all the Christian fathers. Let his type live life stupid and then mercifully, for the rest of us die stupid.
