In 1 Corinthians 12, the Apostle Paul points out that the church is made up of many diverse parts. Just as different parts of the body have different purposes, so different members of the church bring different gifts to the church.
While this passage points to the need for diversity, it also calls for unity in diversity. A body made only of eyes can’t function just as a body whose various parts don’t communicate can’t function. While diversity on its own can cause confusion, diversity paired with a willingness to listen and work together can benefit everybody.
How Christians Can Find Unity in Diversity Through a Common Faith
Our kids are being brainwashed to believe that diversity is the key to strength, success, and wellbeing—whether it concerns people or virtually anything else. But logically speaking, just the opposite is true. The logical end of diversity, alone, is chaos. Yet believing this could earn you the moniker of bigot or racist in today’s politically correct society.
So our kids need to know that strength, success, and wellbeing are the logical result of diversity only when there is unity in diversity. This means diversity must have a common endgame and a common means to get there. For Christian parents, our unity should be the Word of God, whether you are red, yellow, black, or white.
