Darwin's war on women, diversity and equality
By A.J. Castellitto

Despite the depravities of man, Christianity, in its purest, untainted form, sees everyone as equal, with special gifts and vital strengths. In Christ we are different, equal and restored. Darwin never came to comprehend this. He exhibited various racist, sexist, and pessimist sentiments in his published theoretical works that gave justification and inspiration to various forms of social, political and economic tyranny.

A right understanding of Christianity does not place anyone above another. Women are not unequal, neither is one race superior to another. We are all equal in the minds and hearts of the sincere believer. It is the Lord's desire that we all come to a saving knowledge of Him and walk in newness of life.

We need each other. A man will hardly get by in this life without a loving, supportive wife. A woman is to be treated with dignity and respect. She is to be loved and cherished.

The mother and child need a faithful father to be the head of the household and provide loving guidance, protection, discipline and sensitivity unto the family. They in turn will be his comfort and motivation to fight through adversity and seek the wisdom of God.

Despite our cultural, ethnic and social distinctions, we are bound by our humanity and a spirit-led concern for the natural and spiritual health and well-being of our neighbor. The biblical mandate to make loving disciples breaks down barriers. Even when our good-will message is deferred by the recipient, a mutual admiration and kinship may still be maintained until a day of greater understanding. God willing that day will come!

Ultimately, when self interests destroy national interests the line has been crossed. In America, too many lines have been crossed for far too long. There was a time when self interests and national interests were more aligned (or at least the correlation between individual vitality and national vitality were respected). Now self interests are aligned with what Sigmund Freud called the 'Id' (the part of personality made up of unconscious energy that focuses on fulfilling urges). And today our id is king.

My prayer this day is for Israel. Amazing what those people go through. Netanyahu is one of my inspirations. God Bless that brave warrior and fearless leader.

My heart also goes out to the Palestinian child placed in harms way and for all those who have no voice.

I weep for the persecuted Christians everywhere who are martyred for their faith.

We bleed, we suffer, we die....

To whom shall we go? Where will we go? Who sees us through in times of undeserved blessing and bitter strife?

In Darwin lies a HungerGames-style fight for supremacy and superiority. Marxism promises equality in bondage, misery and tyranny.

Christianity offers dignity, vitality and restoration. The gospel responders will come from all corners of the globe. You may not be desirous of such a way this very day, but it may surely come.... He came for me....He came for you!
