"Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;" Colossians 3:9

"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:16

"And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Luke 16:15

"So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God." Romans 14:12

The "lie" of the "old man" is you can do wrong, disobey, i.e., you can "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating without being held accountable. The Greek word for "deeds" is "praxis."

"The philosophy of praxis is the absolute secularization of thought, an absolute humanism of history." (Antonio Gramsci, Selections from the Prison Notebooks)

"Ye shall not surely die:" Genesis 3:4

Any time you, for the sake of "building relationships" with others you dialogue your opinion, i.e., your "feelings" with others to a consensus (regarding right and wrong behavior), i.e., you are being "tolerant" of their (and your) wrong doing, disobeying, sinning, i.e., their (and your) "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating you are putting into praxis the "lie" that you and they can do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., can "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating without being held accountable, i.e., without being judged, i.e., without having a guilty conscience. There is no father's/Father's authority (accountability for your thoughts, i.e., a guilty conscience) in dialogue, in an opinion, or in the consensus process. There is only you 'justifying' your carnal nature, i.e., your (and others) "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating, i.e., there is only the praxis of the "lie" you can do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., you can "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating without being judged, i.e., without being held accountable for your thoughts and actions, making your "self" God.

Liberals, socialists, psychologists, psychotherapists, facilitators of 'change,' children of disobedience, Transformational Marxists (all being the same in formula or method) hate the father's/Father's authority—which judges them, i.e., holds them accountable for their carnal deeds (praxis), which engenders a guilty conscience in them for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning. Their agenda is to 'liberate' children from the father's/Father's authority, making them "of and for self,i.e., lovers of the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates only, instead, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity.

"In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other, they experience the common ground of their existence." (Jürgen Habermas, Knowledge & Human Interest, Chapter Three: The Idea of the Theory of Knowledge as Social Theory)

"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:16

In discussion (which derives from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth), everyone is held accountable (judged) for being (and doing) right and not wrong. In dialogue (which derives from the child's carnal nature, i.e., "self" 'justification,' i.e., loving pleasure, hating restraint), everyone is 'liberated' from accountability (judgment), so all can continue dialoguing until everyone "feels" "good" (only God is good), i.e., "feels" right (like they are God), so all can come to a consensus, i.e., to a "feeling" of "oneness," affirming each others carnal nature, i.e., "human nature," "building relationship upon common 'self' interest," i.e., upon that which is only "of the world." In an environment where you are "asked" (pressured) to be "positive" and not "negative" you are being told to praxis (put into action) the "lie," you will not be held accountable for your thoughts, i.e., your "lusts," i.e., "Ye shall not surely die:" 

"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25

Those of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e.,  those who, through dialogue ,'justify' their "self," do recognize accountability. If you do not join with them, if you not do what they say, i.e., if you refuse to participate in, if you resist, or if you fight against dialogue, i.e., if you refuse to 'justify' them,  if you judge them as being wrong they will hold you accountable for a hate crime, i.e., as being an enemy of "the people." Yet God will have the final word on the issue of accountability.

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Matthew 6:24

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." James 4:4

God hates no one. He hates what we do, i.e., He hates sin, holding us accountable, i.e., judging us according to our thoughts and actions. No work we do can save us, all our works, i.e., our deeds (praxis) are vain. All that is required by God for salvation is faith in Him, with obedience following.

 "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8, 9

"For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." Matthew 12:50

"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." Matthew 23:9

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

Without the Father, and his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, all you have is the world—being held accountable, by Him, for your sins.

"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?"  Matthew 16:24-26

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." 2 Timothy 4:3, 4

Facilitators of 'change,' i.e., psychologists, i.e., behavioral "scientists," i.e., "group psychotherapists,i.e., Marxists (Transformational Marxists)—all being the same in method or formula—are using the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus (affirmation) process, i.e., dialectic 'reasoning' ('reasoning' from/through the students "feelings" of the 'moment,' i.e., from/through their "lust" for pleasure and their hate of restraint, in the "light" of their desire for group approval, i.e., affirmation and fear of group rejection) in the "group grade," "safe zone/space/place," "Don't be negative, be positive," soviet style, brainwashing (washing the father's/Father's authority from the children's thoughts and actions, i.e., "theory and practice," negating their having a guilty conscience, which the father's/father's authority engenders, for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the process—called "the negation of negation" since the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience, being negative to the child's carnal nature, is negated in dialogue—in dialogue, opinion, and the consensus process there is no father's/Father's authority), inductive 'reasoning' ('reasoning' from/through the students "feelings," i.e., their natural inclination to "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'—dopamine emancipation—which the world stimulates, i.e., their "self interest," i.e., their "sense experience," selecting "appropriate information"—excluding, ignoring, or resisting, i.e., rejecting any "inappropriate" information, i.e., established command, rule, fact, or truth that gets in the way of their desired outcome, i.e., pleasure—in determining right from wrong behavior), "Bloom's Taxonomy," "affective domain," French Revolution (Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité) classroom "environment" in order (as in "new" world order) to 'liberate' children from parental authority, i.e., from the father's/Father's authority system (the Patriarchal Paradigm)—seducing, deceiving, and manipulating them as chickens, rats, and dogs, i.e., treating them as natural resource ("human resource") in order to convert them into 'liberals,' socialistsglobalists, so they, 'justifying' their "self" before one another, can do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., "lust" with impunity.

"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken." Jeremiah 6:16, 17

Home schooling material, co-ops, conferences, etc., are joining in the same praxis, fulfilling Immanuel Kant's as well as Georg Hegel's, Karl Marx's, and Sigmund Freud's agenda of using the pattern or method of Genesis 3:1-6, i.e., "self" 'justification,' i.e., dialectic (dialogue) 'reasoning," i.e., 'reasoning' from/through your "feelings," i.e., your carnal desires of the 'moment' which are being stimulated by the world (including your desire for approval from others, with them affirming your carnal nature) in order to negate Hebrews 12:5-11, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline your "self" in order to do the father's/Father's will, negating Romans 7:14-25, i.e., your having a guilty conscience when you do wrong, disobey, sin, thereby negating your having to repent before the father/Father for your doing wrong, disobedience, sins—which is the real agenda.

"And for this cause [because men, as "children of disobedience," 'justify' their "self," i.e., 'justify' their love of "self" and the world, i.e., their love of the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates over and therefore against the Father's authority] God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie [that pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will]: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth [in the Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ], but had pleasure in unrighteousness [in their "self" and the pleasures of the 'moment,' which the world stimulates]." 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12
