The Culture of DivisionWhat was once an overarching system of human knowledge, belief and behavior – culture – is breaking down into many mini-, or sub-cultures. These smaller divisions reflect the sovereignty of the individual as personal identity is sought. A major driver of this process is the response to perceived injustice. When self is all important, perceived injustice drives the self to find justification for the desired expression of the self. This is seen prominently in sexual identity and racial identity, as examples. The way for God’s people to avoid the promotion of self is to ensure that the sacrifice of Christ is front and center. The application of Christ’s sacrifice promotes unity and oneness. The self is crucified with Christ and a new creation is formed which is not under the dictates of social cultures.
