In the last week or so, I’ve seen the attempt on the part of the Reformed cognoscenti to try and make SJW’ism and Kinism flip sides of the same error. The thinking is that they are mirror errors. Kind of like what Nestorianism was to Eutychianism. This is followed by the requisite hair-on-fire screeching about how we need to rid both extremes from “our congregations.”
Problem is … is this just isn’t so. In point of fact, it is like saying that error and truth are flip sides of the same heresy. SJW’ism is boldly talking about the need to repent of whiteness.
Because we have to understand something – whiteness is wicked. It is wicked. It’s rooted in violence, it’s rooted in theft, it’s rooted in plunder, it’s rooted in power, in privilege…Ekemini Uwan, Sparrow Women Conference
Don’t know how I can be more explicit than repent of whiteness… We suffer far more when whiteness goes unrepented. Always have.Ron Burns, Leading Evangelical Race Pimp
Indeed, recently we are hearing of the need to empty our libraries of “white man works” because such libraries are incipient “racist.”
Libraries filled with mostly white collections indicates that we don’t care about what POC (people of color) think, we don’t care to hear from POC themselves, we don’t consider POC to be scholars, we don’t think POC are as valuable, knowledgeable, or as important as white people. I still have some thinking to do around this topic.Sofia Leung, Massachusetts Institute of Technology librarian
To the contrary, Kinism has no problems with non-Caucasians being non-Caucasians and would never call them to repent of their non-Caucasianism. If there is any call to repent it would be the call to repent of envy, repent of coveting, repent of jealousy and repent of cultural Marxism. There would never be a call to repent of being non-Caucasian. We would call white people to repent of the same.
You see, the problem that we are having with SJW’ism is the sin of envy. SJWs won’t admit this because it would be destructive to their cause, but the simple problem is, is that their envy can only seek to gain by false guilt manipulation and government redistribution. This is what they could never gain by actually producing and/or creating something that could be profitable in the marketplace.The SJWs are like dwarfs preoccupied with thinking about height – coming up with the only solution possible of cutting the legs off of everyone else, so that they will no longer be considered short. This is what envy does. Kinism merely says (loudly) that we will not be manipulated by false guilt and that government redistribution plans are a violation of the 8th commandment.
SJW’ism is the heresy of seeking to deconstruct historic Christianity, while redefining historic Christianity with the stuffing of Cultural Marxism and Liberation theology. Kinism is seeking to return to historic Christianity that identified the Creator God as the God who delights in distinctions precisely because He ordained them. SJW’ism is the heresy of Unitarianism which leads to the pursuit of a reality that is a pure monad where all colors, genders, age distinctions and appointed hierarchies bleed into one. Kinism is pleading to a return to the Biblical notion of the One and the Many, plays and revels in God’s ordained pluriform world, and hates, loathes, and castigates every attempt to erase the distinctions that God has ordained.
SJW’ism is the heresy of an egalitarianism that leads to sameness and uniformity. SJW’ism advocates for an Orwellian slave order. Kinism desires a Biblical freedom characterized by the desire for freedom in the context of revealed Biblical forms.
SJW’ism embraces a Greek chain “of being” thinking where all existence shares in the same being-ness that God owns. How do I know this? I know this because in seeking to level all distinctions, what is really being pursued is the elimination of how unfair it is for one person, people or gender to have more being than another person, nation or people. Thus, making them unequal. In their egalitarian pursuit, they are trying to make sure everybody shares in the same amount of ontology. Because of their chain “of being” thinking, the ultimate goal is to make sure that God and man have the same amount of being. Kinism, rejects this chain “of being” thinking and embraces instead the Creator-creature distinction – seeing in the Creator-creature distinction the fountainhead out of which all other differences flow out of. Kinism insists that all men have ontological status before God, while at the same time insisting that people groups have functional differences that lead to differing superiorities and inferiorities in each people group.
SJW’ism is extraordinarily “race” conscious. They are consumed with it. Everything is race to these people. Race for them has been absolutized and the elimination of it in favor of a latte colored mongrel race is the nirvana for which they reach. Kinists are only race conscious in response to this New World Order which seeks to imagine there are no nations (and, no religion too). In war, the ones defending themselves may seem preoccupied with war, but you certainly must excuse the defenders for defending themselves if an enemy is reigning war down on them. Get the enemy to go away and those in the defense mode will go back to normative. It is not the Kinist on the offensive on the issue of race. We only have to defend ourselves because every mechanism out there is attacking the norm of ethnic distinctions re: Hollywood, universities, Madison Avenue, Corporate America, The Mega State, “conservative” churches, etc.).
Insisting that SJW’ism and Kinism are flip sides of the same error is like saying Dracula and Van Helsing are both problems that need to be eliminated. It’s like saying Santa Claus and Krampus are mirror problems that need to be both warred against. It’s like saying Underdog and Simon Bar Sinister are each part of the same problem. To say such things is just stupid (pardon my Calvin, Calvin’s favorite word was “stupid”).
Kinism is just basic Biblical Christianity 101. A cursory reading of the works of the Church Fathers demonstrate that. SJW’ism, on the other hand, is of their Father the Devil, who was a murderer from the beginning. Kinism and SJW’ism are NOT mirror errors. And, if denominations and clergy are successful in continuing to seek to sanitize Kinism from their churches, they will at the same time find themselves successful in showing Jesus Christ the exit.

Oh, I'm a good old Rebel, now that's just what I am; For this "Fair Land of Freedom" I do not give a damn! I'm glad I fit against it, I only wish we'd won, And I don't want no pardon for anything I done.
