He used it in all innocence. He was talking about the hosts of heaven gathered before the throne. He spoke of many races and cultures. His point was that the gospel has been extended to all.
(Galatians 3:28 KJV) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.The Gospel is universal. The church is all inclusive.
That is the point.
When it comes down to it, there is only one “culture” that followers of Jesus belong to. It is Christian culture. We may have many nuances of that culture that are influenced by the neighborhoods and families we come from but they are all submerged in the culture of Christ. We are not diverse.
Politically we have expressed it as “E pluribus unum.” That phrase is on every coin and bit of paper money that you have. It expresses who we are as a nation and it is a reflection of the Christian church. “Out of many, one.”
So don’t fall for this diversity foolishness. Don’t buy into multi-culturalism. Don’t embrace the philosophy of division. If you are a Christian, you are my brother or sister. We have a common culture that trumps our heredity and environment. We need to celebrate that. We need to emphasize the things we have in common not cause division by glorifying the differences.
If you are an American accept the parallel truth. It is one reason we feel that American has been a Christian nation. We were created equal. Let us celebrate the unity we have in the dream of liberty. Only our foolishness can let them take that away from us.
