So also PREOCCUPATIONS with issues of control, keeping people apart, and exclusivity --- entail alienation. Human DESIRES and PREOCCUPATION are woven together into patterns and fabrics which are inter-related with each other; and are to be understood in terms of their patterns of inter-relationships; or they will not be understood in any meaningful ways. Meaningful understanding does not come to people who desire to control others, keep them apart, or exclude them. So also PREOCCUPATIONS with issues of control, keeping people apart, and exclusivity --- block understanding. There is no ISOLATED scripture, confessional statement, doctrine, ritual, institutional element, organizing principle, or political organization which can be relied upon exclusively --- to serve as the means for transcending the above tragic patterns in human relationships; i.e., for protecting "believers/proponents" against tragic patterns in human relationships. That which is relied upon in ISOLATION leads to alienation which is evil. Exclusivity is tragically alienative. Exclusivity does not lead to the enjoyment of personal or communal integrity; to peace or shalom; to reconciliation or recovery; to health or wholeness. Beware of people who believe and contend otherwise. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
