Inferior Cultures … Inferior Men … Inferior Gods

The belief in the equal validity of all culture’s and so all the truths of all cultures which arises from postmodernism must necessarily lead to the devaluing and suppression of objective truth. Further, the concomitant belief in the equal value of all cultures must necessarily lead to the devaluing and suppression of the reality that some cultures are superior while other cultures are inferior. AND since culture is just the outward manifestation of a peoples inward beliefs, the belief that all cultures are of equal value carries with it the necessary belief that all theologies are of equal value and therefore suppresses the reality that cultures informed by Biblical Christianity are superior to those inferior cultures that are informed by the religious beliefs reflective of other inferior gods.

This means that it is not true that all cultures must be respected. Indeed many cultures, should we desire to treat them honorably, should be disrespected, opposed, and attacked. It would be the very definition of being hateful to treat with kindness a culture that is deeply inferior.

Of course, saying this out loud in public will find one tagged with the label of “hater,” but should we ever pull ourselves out of the morass of the inferior culture we are now living in more and more of us must be willing to stand up and say our culture is inferior. We likewise must say, as even living in an inferior culture, that other cultures can be even more inferior.

The denials of inferior R2K “theologians” notwithstanding we must herald a Christ who can heal and so transform and lift cultures. We must bring a Christianity that promises the renewal of individuals and so the renewal of the inferior cultures in which they are currently living. We must tell men as part of giving them God’s Law that men live in inferior cultures because they are inferior men and they are inferior men because they serve and worship inferior gods. Cultures, men, and the gods they serve are all intertwined.

Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.
