Paleo-Orthodoxy: Cultural Marxism and Egalitarianism vs. Christianity and Biblical Complimentarianism

Our society and its culture (such as it is) are in a state of decay. My basic presupposition is that this decay began the moment we, as a people, started moving away from the authority of God's Word, from the first verse to the last. I personally do not want to participate in such a godless culture, and therefore declare myself a Christian Traditionalist. Christian Traditionalism is essentially a belief in upholding and maintaining Christian tradition (morals, values, ethics, biblical centered culture), and defending orthodox Biblical doctrine against the various heresies that arise throughout time. Christian Traditionalism cannot exist where scripture is ignored, or in an atmosphere that encourages a low view of Sacred Scripture. It can only exist where a people are faithful to the orthodox expression of the faith, and the apostolic traditions of the undivided church. i.e. the Patristic era. A Christian Traditionalist also insists on the recognition of both the personal and the social Kingship of Christ, understanding that a healthy culture, civilization, nation and people must recognize the primacy of Christ and His gospel in the social order.

The Four Pillars of an organic and healthy society are: Faith, Family, Tradition and Culture. The Christian Faith sustains the Christian Family; the Family perpetuates the Faith and apostolic tradition; and Faith, Family and Tradition form the life blood of a healthy Christian Culture- a culture that recognizes the personal and social reign of Christ the King.These Four Pillars, if adhered to by a people,will without compromise naturally produce a healthy organic Christian nation and civilization.

Today we do not live in such a world. We live in a world of Cultural Marxism, Relativism, and Immorality. It is an anti-culture known as Modernity. Modernity militates against the Four Pillars through Atheistic Naturalism, sexual "freedom", promotion of gender as a social construct rather than a natural reality, destruction of the traditional family, multi-culturalism as the only honorabel end of a nation (with the long term goal of mono-culture), a production-consumer lifestyle, and ultimately Globalism. This push for "sameness" strips humanity of the unique blessings of each people group, strips them of the dignity of their having been created in the image of God, and renders them slaves to a superstate operated by an oligarchy. This "New World Order" is the Atheistic Naturalist's counterfeit of the Kingdom of God.

These disasters find their temporal root in the Enlightenment, and its subsequent revolutions. The principles of "Liberty, Equality and Fraternity"-Egalitarian principles- are the exact opposite of the biblical (and thus, paleo-orthodox) principle of Complimentarianism.

Egalitarianism is the belief that we are all equal, in all ways. It is the first step toward socialism. Here we are not speaking of the spiritual egalitarianism given expression by the Apostle Paul.

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."Galatians 3:28

Though feminists and other Egalitarian revolutionaries like to quote this verse in support of their agenda, the fact is- under close examination of the context- Paul was not speaking either of Nature or of social order, but of our positional relationship with Christ. Paul was speaking of a spiritual egalitarianism. However, the Cultural Marxists, if they were to re-write this verse, would give us something akin to:

There is neither male or female, gay or straight, morality or immorality, for these are all social constructs that the enlightened progressive person has evolved beyond.

Traditional gender roles, family, social expectations, economics, etc. are all rejected as repressive, oppressive, and outdated. Even nature itself is defied through the rejection of natural biological gender and sexuality. When one really thinks about it, Modernity is insanity- out of touch even with reality- the way the world really is!

Biblical Complimentarianism, on the other hand, recognizes the reality of the world we live in. That is, it recognizes the balance inherent in nature as a matter of creative principle. For example, the relationship between male and female is complimentary; in the procreative act, in the dignity of persons, and in social order. Men and women are not equal with regard to natural ability, proclivity, or sensibilities. Each possesses a strength the other does not. To suggest otherwise is to completely ignore the created order, which is exactly what the Cultural Marxist does by promoting the Evolutionary worldview. Gender exists as a matter of nature-biology, and to deny the reality of gender- to claim it is merely a social construct-is to deny nature, and to deny the complimentary nature of the created world. This complimentarian principle permeates the cosmos down to the cellular level. And yet, for all their faith in Scientism, the egalitarian Atheistic Naturalist absolutely rejects these facts of science in favor of their peculiar politico-religious worldview.

It is indeed insanity.

The antidote to Cultural Marxism and Globalism is Christendom; the reign of Christ the King on a personal and social level. It is turning to Christ and away from sin and all that is common.
