SJW’ism vs. Kinism

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.

SJW’ism is extraordinarily “race” conscious. They are consumed with it. Everything is race to these people. Race for them has been absolutized and the elimination of it in favor of a coffee Latte colored mongrel race is the Nirvana for which they reach. Kinists are only race-conscious in response to this New World Order which seeks to Imagine there are no nations (and no religion too). In war, the ones defending themselves may seem preoccupied with war but you certainly must excuse the defenders for defending themselves if an enemy is reigning war down on them. Get the enemy to go away and those in the defense mode will go back to normative. It is not the Kinist who are going around on the offensive on the issue of race. We only have to defend ourselves because every mechanism out there is attacking the norm of ethnic distinctions. (Hollywood, Universities, Madison Avenue, Corporate America, The Mega-State, The “Conservative” Churches etc.)

Insisting that SJW’ism and Kinism are flip sides of the same error is like saying Dracula and Abraham Van Helsing are both problems that need to be eliminated. It’s like saying Santa Claus and Krampus are mirror problems that need to be both warred against. It’s like saying Underdog and Simon Bar Sinister are each part of the same problem. To say such things is just stupid. (Pardon my Calvin… Calvin’s favorite word was “Stupid”).

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.
