        Diversity in age groups is far different than diversity in doctrine. If you like “The Big Band” era vs. “Nirvana” has little to do with Biblical doctrine. I think the early on discussion of those things in this broadcast muddied the waters on the definition of diversity. Young and old, male, female, black or white, jew or greek..Truth is truth. It seems as if diversity means we cannot know what the Bible avows. It is good to weigh our thoughts, to weigh the opposing view to our concept of scripture and scriptures truth. It is good to respect each other, BUT, there is still, and always will be, only one truth. We all are mining for that truth.

        I couldn’t attend a church that was covenantal in their beliefs or seriously held covenantalism up as if it were true or even tenable. I know, I’m not a good person :). I truly believe that covenantal is non-essential, but I firmly believe it is not true, *WHY * would I toy with it as if I believed it was a possibility once I have determined it is not so?

        I’m not liking this term of “diversity”. We are NOT “diverse”. We are alike and should be in unity. Someone is wrong, not diverse but wrong. Is it me? or is it you? Certainly it is not scripture. I don’t know what the answer is, but I don’t want to fight about it every Sunday…Sunday I want fellowship, Unity, Renewal…AND the freedom to hash it out. That is not diversity. Diversity seems to be redefined as two truths co-existing, as if there could even be such a thing(?)

        “Come let us reason together” that I get. Diversity as co existing truths , lets agree not to disagree..I don’t get.
