Some wisdom from Pastor Bret L. McAtee:
If one were to exert the same exact amount of air through different instruments, one would not expect to hear the exact same sound, because the instruments have been created and designed to sound differently regardless of whether or not the air that animates them is exactly the same. Even so, different peoples can believe the exact same thing, but because they have been created and designed to “sound differently,” they will not produce the same exact culture. If music is sound poured over instrumentation, then why cannot culture be theology poured over ethnicity?
Why would we ever discount the reality that God really does love diversity and as such He creates a symphonic band of cultures, each sharing the same theology, but each producing a unique sound in a wonderful harmony for His glory?
Does God desire us all to be trombones?
Should we desire to change the metaphor, we could ask what would happen if one took the same exact water and poured it over different citrus fruits. Obviously, the reality of the shared water would not make all the juice to taste the same. Just so, different [ethnicities] can have the same exact theology poured over them, and that will not mean that all those [ethnicities] will be the same exact juice (culture), because they were not created to be the same exact citrus fruit.
Why would we ever discount the reality that God really does love diversity and as such he creates varying citrus fruits, each sharing the same theology but each producing a unique flavor consistent with their created intent.
Does God desire us all to be lemons?
