‘Diversity’ Has Become An Idol In Our Society — And It’s Producing Racist And Prejudice People

Skip Heitzig

The Bible’s stance on prejudice, equality, and impartiality is completely different from a modern movement in our culture known as “the DEI movement.”  

61% of adults have to go through some kind of DEI training in the corporate structure in the world in which we live. It happens to be a $9.4 billion industry—yes, people are making money off this type of indoctrination.

DEI simply means “diversity, equity, and inclusion.” It is a forced inclusion imposed upon you based on race, ethnicity, and “sexual orientation.” In the workplace or the educational space, people are selected not based on their skill or competence but based on the most superficial of all factors. What that produces is something known as “tokenism,” where you get a token number of people that fit that category rather than the best possible people who can do the job.

It sounds like it’s supposed to be a noble effort to overturn racism and sexual discrimination. However, what it ends up doing is producing racist and prejudice people.

Ibram X Kendi is an educator and activist who believes that all aspects of society are racist. If you deny that claim, according to Ibram, it proves that you are even more so a racist. He went so far as to say, “The only remedy to pass discrimination is present discrimination.”

Do you hear what he’s saying? What he’s saying is two wrongs make a right. Because you’ve been discriminated against, even if you deny that’s true, we need to discriminate against you.

What does that mean in practical terms? It means that you and I are about to be in a very dangerous society. Why is that? Because it means that, for example, medical schools that need to hire an oncology researcher won’t look for somebody who’s the best in their field but somebody who is gender fluid or a particular race or ethnicity. You have got to fill that quota.

It means that airline pilots may or may not be the best pilots. Let me ask you a question: Would you rather have your pilot be somebody who fits the DEI Paradigm, or would you rather have the best possible pilot who can do the job? That’s the difficulty.

This recent trend happening in our culture is based on the belief that certain groups are guilty and certain other groups are innocent. The guilty ones are the “oppressor class,” and the innocent ones are the “victim class.” You are judged, seen, valued, and treated not individually but corporately as a group because you happen to have a specific background, ethnicity, or skin color. You are either the oppressor or the victim.

If you happen to be the victim class because of skin color or sexual preference, schools, jobs, corporate structure placements, are open to you that wouldn’t be open to others. That’s the society in which we live.

Now, let’s get back to the Bible. What does the Bible have to say about inclusion? Well, “inclusion” is a Biblical concept— it’s called the Church. There is a fundamental redemptive quality about the Church because it was designed by God to get rid of the class structure and the differences that are between us and have our identity in Christ alone.

This is why Paul writes in Galatians 3:28, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

All the distinctions, all the little classifications are done away with because now you and I are part of the Church—the body of Christ. Cultural differences, race, gender are all included in the Church. Our identity is not from those subgroups but from the group, the body of Christ.

In Ephesians chapter 2, there was animosity between two ethnic groups, one was Jewish, and the other Gentile. Paul writes, “For he [Christ] is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us… for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby…”

Without the church, diversity becomes an idol we worship rather than a byproduct of the one we worship. The kind of diversity from the world’s “DEI movement” will turn people into very self-centered, divisive groups of people.

Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of his death and our hostility toward each other was put to death. It’s not about being brown, white, black, male, or female. You are a child of God. You are a son or daughter of the Living God in the Church. That’s where diversity and inclusion reaches its pinnacle.

Franklin Graham Establishes ‘Billy Graham Defense Fund’ To Protect Gospel Outreach In The UK

"We’re going to use these funds that came from this battle against cancel culture to help other Christians who may be threatened into silence," he announced. "This is a victory, not just for us, but for all Christians and churches across the UK."

Hamas Led The Charge On October 7th, But Islam Motivated Hamas

The Hamas attack does not reflect the actions of most Muslims, but it does reflect the Quran. All ideas are not equal. Adolf Hitler’s ideas were not as noble as those of Florence Nightingale. And Islam is not just another version of Christianity. They are as different as black and white, good and evil.
