Diversity and creativity are not inherently "evil". Neither simplicity nor complexity is inherently "good" or "evil". In order for us ourselves to HELPFULLY: discern, recognize, name, describe, tell, say, clarify, articulate, write, discuss, facilitate and/or promote ALL that is --- good, admirable, honorable, acceptable, desirable, proper, needed, necessary, helpful, etc. --- we need to TRANSCEND our own EXCLUSIVE PREOCCUPATIONS with MISLEADING --- conFORMity, uniFORMity, ideal-FORMs, FORMulas, preSCRIPTions, proSCRIPTions, ancient-SCRIPTures, SCRIPTs, ancient-proprieties, ancient-goods, ancient-ideals, ancient-gods, ancient-idols, ancient-conventions, ancient- rituals, etc. It has been said that God is making all things new. We cannot repent without joining God in making all things new. We cannot be honest and authentic people without being open and honest with each other about how we, our relationships and our conceptions of God are all changing --- as we grow and participate in God's works of creativity. Neither we, nor our relationships and conceptions of God are eternal or unchanging. If we pretend otherwise --- we and our relationships lack integrity, and we and our relationships disintegrate in tragic ways. Be aware-of and beware-of people who pretend otherwise. They and their ways are dangerous and their RELATIONSHIPS are evil RELATIONSHIPS; even though they AS-INDIVIDUALS are not INHERENTLY evil, and cannot be INHERENTLY evil. In order to be well-integrited, healthy, well, and to enjoy shalom --- we need to LEARN-TOGETHER how to JOIN- TOGETHER in cooperative diagnostic-procedures through which to discern which of our RELATIONSHIPS are truly: good, admirable, honorable, acceptable, desirable, proper, needed, necessary, helpful, etc. If we think that we are individually inherently superior; we are not. If we think that our neighbors are inherently evil, they are not. Such thoughts mislead us into inherently EVIL-RELATIONSHIPS. Our most profound and important differences pertain to the diverse ways in which we are (or are NOT) ALIENATED-FROM or WELL-INTEGRATED WITHIN-OURSELVES and WITHIN our diverse RELATIONSHIPS --- due to our diverse forms of: arrogance, self-righteousness, greed, narcissism, dishonesty, collusions, addictions; and our diverse froms of: humility, meekness, generosity, hospitality, civility, authenticity, and accurate descriptions. Think on these things. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
