The Body of Frankenstein

Just as the notion of sameness perverts the idea of oneness, so the human ideology of (so-called) unity counterfeits divine community. At first glance sameness and oneness appear synonymous. Likewise, unity and community seem only a play on words. However, sameness and unity are simple attempts to alter perception in the effort to create a new reality. While oneness and community are a reality that takes on a new perception when properly understood.

Sameness and unity, simply, are politically correct ways of forwarding utopian nonsensical madness. By definition they are a denial of reason and reality. They are alienated and completely separated from sound logic and are, instead, based on emotion and feeling (while emotion and feeling in and of themselves are fine, to house an entire worldview in them is sheer insanity).

Oneness and community, on the other hand, accept things as they are. For example, an eye is an eye, a foot a foot, an ear an ear, and a hand a hand, etc (1Cor. 12:13-17). They do not attempt to deny that any of these are what they are, but instead they rightly identify them all as equally important parts of the body (1Cor. 12:18). If the parts were unitarily the same parts, then, they wouldn’t and couldn’t be parts of one body (1Cor. 12:19), but several parts of several bodies (Rom. 12:4).

Thus, oneness demands adversity (Rom. 12:5; 1Cor. 12:20) and, therefore, sameness is necessarily perverted pluralism. Likewise, community insists on many varying members to compile a whole (1Cor. 12:12), but unity consists of a denial of differences and, therewith, an invention of a body of a different sort. Oneness and community are the varying array of members which are fitted together as the Body of Christ (1Cor. 12:27). Sameness and unity are mutated (so-called) members which are sown together into the body of Frankenstein!

The fundamental difference in these two poles is one denies the reality that things are different for a pre-designed purpose, and the other truly accepts the differences as the manifold expression of the oneness of God’s community within Gods-self (1Cor. 12:22-25).
