Recently, I’ve seen the attempt on the part of the Reformed cognoscenti to try and make SJW’ism and Kinism flip sides of the same error. Mirror errors if you will. Kind of like what Nestorianism was to Eutychianism. This is followed by the requisite hair on fire screeching about how we need to rid both extremes from “our congregations.”
The problem is … is this just isn’t so.
In point of fact, it is like saying that Error and Truth are flip sides of the same heresy.
SJW’ism is boldly talking about the need to repent of whiteness. Indeed, recently we are hearing of the need to empty our Libraries of white man works because such Libraries are incipient “racist.” Kinism has no problems with non-Caucasians being non-Caucasians and would never call them to repent of their non-Caucasianism. If there is any call to repent it would be the call to repent of envy, repent of coveting, repent of jealousy, repent of cultural Marxism. There would never be a call to repent of being non-Caucasian. We would call white people to repent of the same.
SJW’ism is the heresy of seeking to deconstruct historic Christianity while redefining historic Christianity with the stuffing of Cultural Marxism and Liberation theology. Kinism is seeking to return to historic Christianity that identified the Creator God as the God who delights in distinctions precisely because He ordained them.
SJW’ism is the heresy of Unitarianism which leads to the pursuit of a reality that is a pure monad where all colors, genders, age distinctions, and appointed hierarchies bleed into one. Kinism is pleading to a return to the Biblical notion of the One and the Many, plays and revels in God’s ordained pluriform world, and hates, loathes, and castigates every attempt to erase the distinctions that God has ordained.
SJW’ism is the heresy of an Egalitarianism that leads to sameness and uniformity. SJW’ism advocates for an Orwellian slave order. Kinism desires a Biblical Freedom characterized by the desire for freedom in the context of revealed Biblical Forms.
SJW’ism embraces a Greek chain of being thinking where all existence shares in the same being-ness that God owns. How do I know this? I know this because in seeking to level all distinctions what is really being pursued is the elimination of how unfair it is for one person or people or gender to have more being than another person, nation, or people thus making them unequal. In their Egalitarian pursuit, they are trying to make sure everybody shares in the same amount of being. Because of their chain of being thinking the ultimate goal is to make sure that God and man have the same amount of being. Kinism rejects this chain of being thinking and embraces instead the Creator-creature distinction seeing in the Creator-creature distinction the fountainhead out of which all other differences flow out.
Kinism is just basic Biblical Christianity 101. A cursory reading of the works of the Church Fathers demonstrates that. SJW’ism, on the other hand, is of their Father the Devil who was a murderer and liar from the beginning.
