Thesis: is the father with his money, wanting you to do what he wants in order for you to have access to it.

Antithesis: is you wanting the father's money so you can do what you want with it.

Synthesis: is you having the father's money doing what you want with it.

"The philosopher Hegel said that truth is not found in the thesis nor the antithesis but in an emerging synthesis which reconciles the two." (Martin Luther King Jr.,  Strength to Love)

"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)

"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')

Synthesis is simply antithesis believing that it is thesis. There is no synthesis except in the carnal mind.

"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

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

When you start with preaching, teaching, and discussing established commands, rules, facts, and truth, which is to be accepted as is, by faith and obeyed, making the father's/Father's authority the thesis, the child's carnal nature, i.e., the child's natural "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment,' which the world (situation) stimulates—which is antithetical to the father's/Father's authority—will always remain antithesis. There can never by a synthesis of the two. But if you switch emphasis away from the father's/Father's authority, putting the emphasis upon the child's carnal nature, i.e., upon "feelings" instead, insisting upon dialogue, i.e., insisting upon everyone's sharing their "feelings," making "opinions" and "self interest" the thesis, then the father's/Father's authority—which is antithetical to opinions and dialogue—becomes the antithesis, i.e., the source of controversy, tension, and conflict. In this way, by removing the father's/Father's authority, i.e., by 'labeling' the preaching, teaching, and discussing of established commands, rules, facts, and truth, which are to be accepted and obeyed as "negative," the father's/Father's authority is negated in the children's thoughts and actions, 'creating' a new world order where all can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity, i.e., be "positive," uniting (coming to consensus, i.e., synthesis) upon their common carnal nature, i.e., the "lust of the flesh," "the lust of the eyes," and "the pride of life" which they all have in common, making pleasure the 'drive' and the augmentation of pleasure the 'purpose' of life—instead of doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will. It is our carnal "feeling," which we all have in common, which unites. It is having to obey commands, rules, facts, and truth which divides us from our "self" and from one another. Negate the latter, i.e., the "negative" by emphasizing the former, i.e., the "positive" and synthesis, i.e., a "new" world order is 'created' in the thoughts and actions of the children/mankind (making sure everyone dies in their sins).

"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

The "new" world order is simply children (in adult bodies), 'justifying' their carnal nature, i.e., 'justifying' their "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, negating the father's/Father's authority in their thoughts and actions, thinking and acting as though they are in control of their lives when it is those who are seducing, deceiving, and manipulating them, i.e.., psychologists, "psychotherapists," facilitators of 'change,'' Transformational Marxists (all being the same in praxis) who are in control of their lives instead, using them as "human resource" for their own pleasure and gain.

"We know how to change the opinions of an individual in a selected direction, without his ever becoming aware of the stimuli which changed his opinion." "We know how to influence the ... behavior of individuals by setting up conditions which provide satisfaction for needs of which they are unconscious, but which we have been able to determine." "If we have the power or authority to establish the necessary conditions, the predicted behaviors [our potential ability to influence or control the behavior of groups] will follow." "We can choose to use our growing knowledge to enslave people in ways never dreamed of before, depersonalizing them, controlling them by means so carefully selected that they will perhaps never be aware of their loss of personhood." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)

"The entry into Freud cannot avoid being a plunge into a strange world and a strange language—a world of sick men, ....It is a shattering experience for anyone seriously committed to the Western traditions of morality and rationality to take a steadfast, unflinching look at what Freud has to say. To experience Freud is to partake a second time of the forbidden fruit;..." "Our real choice is between holy and unholy madness: open your eyes and look around you—madness is in the saddle anyhow." "It is possible to be mad and to be unblest, but it is not possible to get the blessing without the madness; it is not possible to get the illuminations without the derangement," "I wagered my intellectual life on the idea of finding in Freud what was missing in Marx." (Norman O. Brown, regarding his book Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)

"And through covetousness [your "lusts," i.e., your "self interest"] shall they with feigned words [doublespeak, telling you what you want to hear] make merchandise of you [turn you into "human resource" so they can use you for their own pleasure and gain]: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not." 2 Peter 2:3

"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the father's/Father's will], and desperately wicked [hating whoever prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks it from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' it desires]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 You can not see your hate of restraint, i.e., your hate God's authority as being evil because "self," i.e., your love of pleasure is in the way, blinding you to the deceitfulness and wickedness of your heart, 'justifying' your hatred toward authority.

"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

"Every one that is proud in heart [who 'justifies' his "self," i.e., who 'justifies' his carnal nature, i.e. who establishes "self" over and therefore against God, making his "self" God] is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished." Proverbs 16:5

"And for this cause [because men, as "children of disobedience," 'justify' themselves, i.e., 'justify' their love of "self" and the world, i.e., 'justify' their love of pleasures 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

"For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Matthew 16:26

"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.." Matthew 7:21-23
