The other day my wife received a life insurance offer from All State in the mail. Being that God has blessed me with the desire to analyze all details of life through the lens of the Holy Scriptures (to see if it matches up with the standards of the word of God), something very interesting stood out to me on the letter from All State.
One thing that God has taught me, as an effective tool in discussion, is to find the inconsistencies in unscriptural arguments. Any false doctrine will always contain inconsistencies in logic. The God of the Bible is a God of logic and order. And since Jesus Christ is the truth (John 14:6), it follows that every false way will not follow the laws of logic.
A man of truth, who is committed to the ways of Christ and word of God will want to, upon seeing his own inconsistency, change and align himself with the truth of scripture. A man of truth will do this regardless of the consequences, because he does not love the praise of men more than the praise of God (John 12:42,43).
Your average church-goer is not such a man. He is part of the “don’t judge” crowd who believes that the only sin in the Bible is judging others; he lashes out and will call you a Legalist or a Pharisee. Ironically, it was the Pharisees, who upon being called out for their inconsistencies (hypocrisy) by Jesus, hated the Son of God and had him put to death.
I have included a screen shot of the costs of life insurance, per month, based on what your gender and age are. All State puts a difference in their pricing, determined by male or female. All State also puts a difference between the young and the old. This putting a difference is the exact definition of that awful, dreaded word… DISCRIMINATION.
What is Discrimination?
From the Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, discrimination is defined as:
- To distinguish, to observe the difference between…
- …to make a distinction between…
- To mark with notes or difference; to distinguish by some note or mark…
To discriminate is to mark, note, practice, observe, etc… a difference between. Is discrimination immoral ? According to Marxist Americans, it is. Is it against the law of God? Even right-wing Christians will say it is a violation of “loving your neighbor”. This type of Christian has succumbed to the Marxist way of thought, whether wittingly or no. But neither the professing Christian nor others can defend this belief consistently.
Ask the average person you meet what he thinks of discrimination and he will most certainly react negatively, having been conditioned to think of those poor blacks being treated as less than human by those evil white ancestors of ours. He probably does not even realize that the word discrimination is an entirely neutral word.
Discrimination is particularly deemed immoral if it is based on race, religion, or gender. Over my short lifetime, this has also come to include “sexual orientation” (level of sexual perversity). Christians have been coming around on the issue of Sodomy and it will not be long until an agreement with God’s hatred of this perversion will land you in the camp of the unorthodox, in the church.
When Society Agrees with Discrimination
In our All State Insurance example, we have a clear case of discrimination based on gender and age. Americans do not protest this form of discrimination at all. One of the key reasons Americans will not blink an eye at this situation is because the word “discrimination” is not used explicitly. It would be very interesting to see how the brainwashed masses (including church-goers) would react if All State placed the words “we discriminate based on age and gender in our prices” on their letter.
It is simply amazing to see how Americans have been conditioned to only associate the word “discrimination” with forms of the practice that the left presently deems to be immoral. It is not called “discrimination” when other particular proponents of sexual deviant behavior (pedophilia, incest, rape) are restricted from their practices. Yet at the same time, we are moving at such a rapid pace toward total wickedness that it would not be surprising if any one of these which are presently deemed immoral, become acceptable. See a semi-recent article wherein even the Washington Times Newspaper calls for an alarm.
In the case of All State and their discriminatory insurance prices, the policy is deemed positive; probably even “scientific”. We will assume that this discriminatory practice is based on sound logic and reasoning. Perhaps because women are less likely to die early than men. Maybe they have a longer life expectancy. The older folks certainly have a higher rate because they are more likely to die than someone who is younger.
All State is completely reasonable for having such price differences. Nobody objects to these policies either, because people have not been conditioned to cry out against it. This is especially true considering that it is men who pay the higher prices. It might be a different story if the situation were reversed, but I digress.
Why does practically no one object to discrimination based on gender for life insurance? Certainly if a business discriminated based on gender for job hiring (particularly against a woman), everyone would be up in arms in a heartbeat. In fact, as you know, discrimination based on things like gender, age, race, religion, etc. are illegal in many cases. Yet the American Christian has no objection to this violation of freedom of association.
Could An Insurance Company Ever Offer Race-Based Prices?
Let us suppose a particular situation, for the sake of argument. Let us suppose that a Negro had a lower life expectancy than someone of White European heritage. And then let us suppose that All State, using the same logic as its discrimination for gender and age (giving men and older folks a higher rate), had a chart that said:
- Black Male- $17.75 per month
- Black Female- $16.89 per month
- White Male- $16.01 per month
- White Female- $15.53 per month
How long, do you suppose, that such a policy would exist for All State? It would not have the slightest chance! Why? It is based on the same logic as is used to discriminate on their current policy. The actual reason it would not be permitted is because it violates the religious laws of Marxist social dogma.
And we must never forget that discrimination is only truly evil if it is perpetrated for the supposed disadvantage of “minorities” or women, or non-Christian religious folks, or Sodomites and other sexually perverse people. This is a clear indicator that Marxists are doing the bidding of their father, the devil. And the American Christian has no problem partaking of their evil deeds by bidding them God speed (2John 1:9-11).
Thus we can see the hypocritical way in which modern Christians follow the ways of the world rather than the ways of God. Instead of being in agreement with God that forms of discrimination based on race (or other uncontrollable factors) are just and oftentimes good (Deuteronomy 23:1-8), he joins hand-in-hand with Christ-haters across the world. Rather than renewing his mind so he can prove the perfect will of God (Romans 12:1-2), he instead fears man more than he fears God, creating a god in his own image. His true god is Marxism with fluffy Bible verses surrounding it to make everyone feel good (emotionalism).
He values not truth and justice, as God does; but rather he values “equality and fairness”; doctrines that are entirely foreign to the Holy Scriptures. Let the reader who believes in equality examine himself, whether he is in the true saving faith of the Lord Jesus Christ. To him be glory forever and ever. Amen.
