questions for questioning

(Does the ìmiddling effectî that the dialectic and its resultant worldviews and political philosophies espouse really represent a Biblical picture of equality?) Thatís a question that begs many questions, humming in the back of my mindÖ Okay, here are my questions: a. Specialization: should people be ìcompensated accordinglyî within differing strata, based on their specialization in any given field? b. If yes, then what does righteousness mean to two people in relationship who are separated by ìdeservableî compensations for legitimate differences in their specialization? Socialism, Communism, and all the political philosophies that Dostoevsky criticized as ìtrying to produce heaven-on-earthî seem to me to make their basis for commentary and structural building ìpoint aî. I hear John Lennon singing ëImagineí in the backgroundÖ Should business people who are experts in managing or in building their class of business be compensated differently than people who havenít put in the time or displayed the ability to do what it takes to be thereÖ? Should college professors who are experts in their field of knowledge and how to disseminate that knowledge be compensated differently than the students beneath them? Should pastors who have organizational and real life experience beneath their maturity be compensated differently than the people they are called to organize and disciple? I am instinctively seeing community development realistically taking place from commentary and structural building around ëpoint bí. In any field of any kind there has to be varying degrees of stratification, all of creation seems to reflect this. For us, it starts with the stratification of maturity among individuals so that any form of discipleship is even possible. Organization only balances personality and efficiency when there is an appropriate stratification of responsibility and authority. Now, how they work togetherÖ that seems of ultimate importance here.
