Different kinds of people are prone to develop and/or believe in different kinds of theories of integrity and/or disintegration. 1. Some fearful people are prone to believe that in the absence of centralized and/or formal controls --- things will inevitably fall apart, disintegrate and chaos will prevail. Such people are often preoccupied with issues of control, discipline, law, orders, commandments, prescriptions, proscriptions, formalities, and conformity. They may believe that the world/universe/cosmos is dominated by "fallen men", "people-in-original-sin", "fate", "evil", "devils", "sin", "evil-desires", etc. 2. Some healthy people are pleased to believe that in the presence of God's Love people come together, cooperate, and integration will prevail. Such people are often interested in peacemaking, conflict resolution, reconciliation, healing, reconstruction, and liberation. They believe that the world/universe/cosmos is pervaded by the creative Holy Spirit of God Who Is Love --- in continual creative activities within and through people who are participating in-right-informal relationships. Often different people find it hard to understand each other and/or each other's texts, favorite scriptures and focal activities. From within their characteristic perspectives and patterns of assumptions, attitudes and beliefs --- those "other" "different" people make no sense --- and are a threat to the integrity of the whole community. The question is, which kind of people are more likely to be participants in truly integrative activities, and which are more likely to be participants in alienative activities. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
