Christ Is No Tribal Deity


It’s because we can still see who we are
that the unifying insignia of Christ shines so brightly with his glory. If I
had to cease to be a Scythian to be saved, if you had to cease to be a Jew to
belong to Christ, if she had to cease to speak her mother tongue in order to have
a seat at the table of the King, Christ would not be preeminent in glory. He
would be parochial. He would be a tribal deity. Christ is not a tribal deity. He is
the Creator of the universe, the incarnate God, the Redeemer of a new humanity ransomed from all the peoples of the world, that in
everything, he might be preeminent, and that in the church the purpose of the
universe happens.

    Why don't you work towards unifying Edom's stolen resources back to their original owners? No. Instead Edom will keep that which oppresses tribes that were 'created' by the Creator as tribes (and I'm pretty sure the Creator made no mistakes when He seperated the nations and placed numerous tribes on Earth). Non-tribal identity is of satan the devil, who is deceiving the whole world and is the author of confusion. God has a chosen people who are of the lost and scattered House of Israel. Edom is greedy and always has been – they want their blessing and Jacob's blessing too…but the Lord will say to them 'depart from me…ye workers of iniquity'. Edom is the borders of wickedness and history shows they are fugitives of the Most High's laws…they worketh not for righteousness on earth as in heaven and only seek salvation where they know there will be judgment. Work towards equity for the oppressed and stop trying to jump on their blessing…which is to inherit the earth at the fullness of the gentile's rule. The devil is a liar, Edom is scared and where are the scriptures – precept upon precept to back up this man's assertions?

    I'm not sure that just saying it like you REALLY mean it makes it true. Speaking with such conviction can be really convincing, but at the end of the day, Piper is no different than a witch doctor. He spent his life controlling others and slowing the speed of modernity. I own nearly all of Piper's books and truly believed at one point, now I see this man is a raving lunatic.

    The only God is Jesus Christ's God, our Lord's God No one is God but his God. And our Lord's God is no tribal deity. Nor is our Lord's God a three-person-being which men have invented.

    Let's say there is a culture that makes cannibalism and polyamory the foundation of one's cultural identity. For the sake of argument, let's call this culture the, "Unscriptuu" people. If someone of the Unscriptuu people comes to Christ, because they would have to stop killing and eating human beings, and copulating outside the context of marriage, and in order to be an Unscriptuu one would have to adopt such lifestyles, does that mean they have to stop being an Unscriptuu in order to take on the Christian identity unhypocritically?

    The only true God is Jesus Christ's God and there is no other. His God created all things. His God delivered Israel out of Egypt. And it was his God who said many times that no one else is God but He Himself. If not his God then what God? It is mind boggling to observe how any believer of Scripture would suppose anything else.
