"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
(Audio of and an expounding upon the following—Separate page and pdf for easier reading and printing of the following.)
The dialectic process (the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process) engenders the attitude "You can't tell me what I can and can not do. And if you do I'm going to get rid of you." (The "me," "I," and "I'm" can be replaced with "use," "we," and "we're.") It is in the dynamics of identifying with "the group" that the individual is 'changed,' replacing his being an individual in "a group" with "the group" now being in him (in his thoughts, directly effecting his actions). "The child takes on the characteristic behavior of the group in which he is placed. . . . he reflects the behavior patterns which are set by the adult leader of the group." (Kurt Lewin in Wilbur Brookover, A Sociology of Education) With traditional leadership the individuals in a group are held personally accountable to commands, rules, facts, and truth that are established by the leader of "the group," only changing their position throught persuation while in a facilitated meeting the individual's paradigm, i.e., the way he feels, thinks, and acts toward self, others, the world, and authority is 'changed,' 'justifying' his lust for pleasure and dissatisfaction, resentment, hatred toward restraint, i.e., toward the restrainor (toward the traditional leader and all who follow after his way of thinking and acting, 'loyalty to "the group," i.e., toward his and its lust for pleasure and dissatisfaction, resentment, hatred toward restrain now guiding this thoughts—instead of any command, rule, fact, or truth established by the father/Father—directly effecting his behavior). "There is no more important issue than the interrelationship of the group members." "To question the value or activities of the group, would be to thrust himself into a state of dissonance." (Irvin D. Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy) "Dissonance" or "cognitive dissonance" is "the lack of harmony between what one does and what one believes." "The pressure to change either one’s behavior or ones belief." (Ernest R. Hilgard, Introduction to Psychology) Yalom continues: "Few individuals, as Asch has shown, can maintain their objectivity [their loyalty to the father's/Father's authority (system, way of thinking, or paradigm)] in the face of apparent group unanimity."
The student/man is forced (under the pressure of the "group's" approval or rejection of him) to choose between either doing the father's/Father's will, i.e., being told (judging, condemning, casting out those who disobey the father/Father), thus facing rejection by "the group" or becoming at-one-with "the group," i.e., 'justifying' lust (what comes naturally to everyone in "the group," i.e., judging, condemning, casting out those who adhere to the father's/Father's authority system)]." "The individual accepts the new system of values and beliefs by accepting belongingness to the group." (Kurt Lewin in Kenneth Benne, Human Relations in Curriculum Change)
"The real nature of man is the totality of social relations." (Karl Marx, Thesis on Feuerbach #6) By replacing the traditional educator with a facilitator of 'change' the student's ("the people's") way of thinking (and therefore behavior) is 'changed.' "Change in methods of leadership is probably the quickest way to bring about a change in the cultural atmosphere of a group." "Any real change of the culture of a group is, therefore, interwoven with the changes of the power constellation within the group." (Barker, Dembo, & Lewin, "frustration and regression: an experiment with young children" in Child Behavior and Development) As long as the father's/Father's authority system remain in place the process of 'change' can not be initiated or sustained. "The dialectical method was overthrown—the parts [the children] were prevented from finding their definition [their identity] within the whole [within "the group," through dialogue 'justifying' their lusts]." (György Lukács, History & Class Consciousness: What is Orthodox Marxism?)
By replacing (in the environment) what the father/Father says (demands) with the child's/man's "feelings" of the 'moment' (that the environment, i.e., that the situation, object, people, or person is stimulating) the child/man is 'changed.' "Part of the dialectics of the process of winning independence from parental authority lies in using the extrafamilial peer group as a foil to parental authority, particularly in the period of adolescence." (Bradford, Gibb, Benne, T-Group Theory and Laboratory Method: Innovation in Re-education) "In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself [one's lusts] 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)
All I have to do in order to "own" your child, i.e., turn your child against you and your authority is place him or her in with a group of children not judging, condemning, casting anyone out (except those fighting against the group's participation), requiring everyone to be "positive," i.e., tolerate of ambiguity, 'justifying' sin and not "negative," judging, condemning, casting out those who sin and ask them how they "feel" and what they "think" when they are told what they can and can not do.
The dialoguing of their opinions to a consensus 'justifies' their self interest along with their belongingness to "the group" which has now become more important to them than their parents, i.e., their parent's authority. In dialogue (when it comes to behavior) the child, deciding right and wrong behavior according to his or her carnal desires, i.e., lust of the 'moment,' i.e., in the "here-and-now" (setting aside, i.e., suspending as upon a cross any command, rule, fact, or truth that is getting in the way of the pleasure of the 'moment' and the approval of his or her peers) is God. In discussion he or she is not (with doing right and not wrong according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth having the final say, there concern being with the "there-and-then"—what they have been told in the past and the consequence of their thoughts and actions in the future).
"In an ordinary discussion people usually hold relatively fixed positions and argue in favor of their views as they try to convince others to change." "A dialogue is essentially a conversation between equals." "The spirit of dialogue, is in short, the ability to hold many points of view in suspension, along with a primary interest in the creation of common meaning." (Bohm and Peat, Science, Order, and Creativity) The negation of the father's/Father's authority in the mind of the children (controlling their thoughts, thus their actions) is what contemporary education, with its emphasis upon the "affective domain" is all about (even in the private, parochial, "Christian," and home school). If you are more concerned about your child's social life then where he or she is going to spend eternity, you are a socialist. You can deny that (all day long) but you can not refute it. To be silent in the midst of unrighteousness is to make unrighteousness the "norm."
The father/Father holds you accountable to obeying and applying his/His established commands, rules, facts, and truth. The facilitator of 'change' 'liberates' you from the father's/Father's authority, thus 'liberating' you from his/His established commands, rules, facts, and truth—in order for you (and him) to lust after the carnal pleasures of the'moment' that the world stimulates without having a guilty conscience, no longer having a fear of being judged, condemned, and cast out for your (and his) immoral behavior. In the consensus process all policies, rules, and laws are void of the father's/Father's authority system. "Bypassing the traditional channels of 'top-down' decision making [negating the father's/Father's authority while establishing policy and/or making law, i.e., while establishing right and wrong behavior (using dialogue instead of discussion—the true meaning of the word—when it comes to establishing right and wrong behavior accompishes the deed aka Praxis] our objective center's upon transforming public opinion into an effective instrument of global politics." "Individual values must be measured by their contribution to common [lust] interests and ultimately to world interests, transforming public consensus into one favorable to the emergence of a stable and humanistic world order." "Consensus is both a personal and a political step. It is a precondition of all future steps." (Ervin Laszlo, A Strategy For The Future: The Systems Approach to World Order) It is in "the group" you set aside (compromise) the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth (suspend the truth, as upon a cross) in order (as in "new" world order) to initiate and sustain relationship—based upon your and the other persons common self interest, i.e., upon your and their lusts of the 'moment' that you and the other person have in common.
Benjamin Bloom, in his Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 2: Affective Domain wrote: "There are many stories of the conflict and tension that these new practices are producing between parents and children." (David Krathwohl, Benjamin S. Bloom, ibid) All "educators" (as facilitator's of 'change') are certified and schools accredited today (since the 50's) by what are called "Bloom's Taxonomies," i.e., Marxist curriculum, used to 'liberate' children from their parent's authority and man from God's. All the facilitator of 'change' has to do (as the 'master facilitator of 'change' did with the woman in a garden in Eden) is get you, your spouse, and your children to share (dialogue) your and their opinion (feelings and thoughts) regarding right and wrong behavior and your authority as a father or parent (the father's/Father's authority system) is negated. There is no father's/Father's authority in dialogue, in an opinion, or in the consensus process. There is only the participant's lusts, i.e., self interest of the 'moment' being 'justified.' The same is true for your elected officials, your police, your educators, etc., even your "minister." This is what God has warned us about in His Word. "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
The "teacher," basing education upon the "affective domain," i.e., upon the students self interest, i.e., upon their natural inclination to lust after pleasure and resent (hate) restraint takes on the role of a "facilitator of 'change.'" The facilitator of 'change,' perceiving his self as being the personification of "the people," who, like him lust after the carnal pleasures of the moment the world stimulates, hating restraint, sees it as his duty to 'justify' the students' natural inclination to lust after pleasure in order to 'justify' his natural inclination to lust after pleasure. When you question the facilitator of 'change's' actions he (or she) will respond with "It is not just about you," really meaning "It is all about me, so I can lust after pleasure without being judged, condemned, cast out, without having a guilty conscience, with your affirmation. If you refuse to affirm me, i.e., 'justify' my lusts or get in my way 'the people' will remove (negate) you (since having 'justifying' their lusts I now 'own' them). It appears I must keep an eye on you from now on for my 'good.'" This is the true meaning of "sight based management."
The soul KNOWS by being told, the flesh knows by "sense experience." You persuade with facts. You manipulate with feelings. This is the difference between discussion and dialogue. In dialogue (which is subject to your feelings) you do what you are told because you have to (or else—fear of judgment, condemnation, being cast out and the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for lusting after pleasure keeps you under the parent's/God's control). In discussion (which is subject to established commands, rules, facts, and truth) you do what you are told because you want to (you want to do or be right and not wrong).
For those "of (and for) the world" (subject to stimulus-response) "the central problem is to change reality," "reality with its 'obedience to laws,'" in order for "lawfulness without law," i.e., the law of the flesh to rule without the law of the father/Father getting in the way. (Lukács; Immanuel Kant, Critique of Judgment) The facilitator of 'changes'' objective is to "prevent someone who KNOWS from filling the empty space." (Wilfred Bion, A Memoir of the Future)
This is antithetical to God and His Word. "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 "The heart is deceitful above all things , and desperately wicked: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 You can not see your hatred toward restraint as being evil because your lust for pleasure is standing in the way 'justifying' the hate. "Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil." Proverbs 16:5-6
Right and wrong behavior is no longer known by being told, i.e., by the Word of God, i.e., by faith (which is objective) but known by "sense experience," i.e., by "the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," i.e., by sight, i.e., by perception, i.e., by what "seems" to be (which is subjective), i.e., by "What can I get out of this situation and/or object, people, or person for my self?" which leads to "What will happen to me if they reject me and turn on me?" (engendering fear of man instead of God). "Experience is, for me, the highest authority." "Neither the Bible nor the prophets, neither the revelations of God can take precedence over my own direct experience." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)
It is very clear what the Word of God says about the Father's authority, i.e., being told. "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4 "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." John 5:30 "For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak." John 12:47-50 "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 "[I]t is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23 It is also very clear when we reject God the Father's authority. "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." Hosea 4:6
You can not leave the Father out without leaving the Son out—who the Father sent to 'redeem' us by his shed blood on the cross. And you can not leave the Son out without leaving the Father out—who raised the Son from the grace in order to 'reconcile' us to Himself. "He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son." 1 John 2:22 ". . . and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ." 1 John 1:3
"Once the earthly family is discovered to be the secret of the Holy family, the former must then itself be destroyed [vernichtet, i.e., annihilated, i.e., negated] in theory and in practice." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4) While the heavenly Father is holy and the earthly father is born into sin both have the same authority system, preaching commands and rules to be obeyed as given, teaching facts and truth to be accepted as is (at first at least by faith) and applied, discussing with those under his/His authority any questions they might have regarding his/His commands, rules, facts, and truth, providing he/He deems it necessary, has time, those under his/His authority are able to understand, and are not questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking his/His authority, 2) rewarding those who do right and obey, 3) correcting and/or chastening those who do wrong and/or disobey, that they might learn to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline, capitulate their "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to the established commands, rules, facts, and truth they have been taught (told), i.e., in order to do the father's/Fathers' will, and 4) casting out (expels/grounds) those who question, challenge, defy, disregard, attack his/His authority, which retains the father's/Father's authority system in the child's/man's thoughts, directing effecting his actions, resulting in the those under the father's/Father's authority KNOWING right from wrong from being told (especially when it comes to behavior). Traditional education, while it might inculcate bad or wrong information replacates this way of thinking and acting. Transational education, where little instruction takes places is bad. While Transformational eduction, which rejects the father's/Father's authority is wicked. Rejecting the Father's authority, Karl Marx (and all who adhear to stimulus-response when it comes to establishing right and wrong behavior) determined that faith in God, i.e., the Heavenly Father was the result of children accepting and submitting to the father's authority in the home, thus requiring the negation of the earthly father's authority in order for man to become at-one-with his self and his fellow man, thinking and accting according to his carnal nature (what he has in common with all men) without restraint. Lenin (of the Russian Revolution) put it this way: "The peasantry [the traditional family] constantly regenerates the bourgeoisie [the father's/Father's authority system]—in positively every sphere of activity and life." "We must learn how to eradicate all bourgeois habits, customs, and traditions everywhere." (Vladimir Lenin, Left-Wing Communism: an Infantile Disorder An Essential Condition of the Bolsheviks' Success May 12, 1920)
The essence of Marxism is leaving out of your conversation (your communication) with your self and with others God's judgment upon, condemnation of, and casting out those who sin—that man might repent. For the facilitator of 'change' and the person who follows after him "God is not in all his thoughts." "[T]here is no fear of God before his eyes." Psalms 10:4, 36:1
All that "is" "is of the world," i.e., is stimulus-response, which is passing away (is only of the 'moment,' i.e., the "eternal present"). Only what is of and from God, i.e., being told and obeying by faith is of eternal value. You can not have faith without being told. Likewise you can not have mercy without first being found guilty. 'Justifying' your self, i.e., your lusts, i.e., your self interest negates your salvation. [To] "'purge [man] of sin' with all the aids of the dialectics, therefore, is to rob him of true salvation, of his eternal destiny." (Rene Fulop-Miller, The Power and Secrets of the Jesuits, p.468.) "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire" which is never quenched, prepared for the master facilitator of 'change' and all who follow after him, 'justifying' their lusts, establishing "human nature," i.e., their carnal thoughts and carnal actions as being equal with, therefore greater than, and therefore against the father/Father and his/His authority. Revelation 10:15
"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 "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:" Romans 5:1 "So then faith cometh by hearing [being told], and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17 "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 "... do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ." Galatians 1:10
You do have a choice, either choose to deny your self, i.e., die to your lust, pick up your cross, i.e., endure the rejection of others for denying (reproving, correcting, judging, condemning, rejecting) them for establishing their lusts and the lust of others over and therefore against doing the Father's will, and follow the Lord Jesus Christ, doing the Father's will, inheriting eternal life or choose to 'justify' your lusts and the lusts of others, dying in your sins, inheriting eternal death. If you use or participate in the use of "Bloom's Taxonomies" (the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus—suspending the truth, i.e., Jesus Christ upon the cross in order to initiate and sustain relationship with others) in the classroom you choose to die in your sins, i.e., you choose to spend eternity in the lake of fire that is never quenched, prepared for the master facilitator of 'change' and all who follow after him instead of following after the Lord, doing the Father's will, inheriting eternal life. "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverb. 3: 5-6
Marxists, socialists, psychotherapists, facilitators of 'change,' Communists-Fascists, i.e., Globalists can not gain control of "the people" as long as the earthly father's authority (being personally held accountable to doing right and not wrong according to the father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., to what the father says) and the Heavenly Father's authority, above the earthly father's authority (being personally held accountable to doing right and not wrong according to the Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., to what the Father says) remains in control of the individual's thoughts, directly effecting his actions (engendering individualism, under God). While the Heavenly Father is from above and the earthly father is below both require those under their authority to humble, die to, control, discipline, capitulate their self, i.e., to deny their lusts in order (as in "old" world order) to do right and not wrong according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., in order to do the father's/Father's will. In order (as in "new" world order) for Marxists, socialists, psychotherapists, facilitators of 'change,' Communists-Fascists, i.e., Globalists to initiate and sustain control over "the people" they must first negate the father's/Father's authority system (doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, demanding others do the same—equated to "prejudice") in the environment where right and wrong behavior is being determined (defined and established), in the process negating the guilty conscience that the father's/Father's authority engenders for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people or person is stimulating, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., so they can "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people or person is stimulating with impunity, i.e., with "the peoples" ("the group's") affirmation, negating (removing, without having a guilty conscience) anyone who gets in their way (including the unborn, the elderly, the innocent, the righteous). Perceiving their "self" as being the personification of "the people" (since "the people" "lust" and they "lust," "lust," i.e., "human nature" being the common denominator—making "lust," i.e., what all people have in common the basis for common-ism) anyone questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking them (hurting their "feelings," i.e. getting in the way of their "lusts") is perceived as questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking "the people," 'justifying' (in their mind) their need to negate them—silence, censor, 'label' them as being unfit ("mentally ill") and "terminate" them. When their actions are questioned they will respond with "It is not just about you," really meaning "It is all about me, so I can lust after pleasure and remove anyone who gets in my way without having a guilty conscience, with your affirmation. If you refuse to affirm me, i.e., my lusts or get in my way 'the people' will remove (negate) you (since having 'justifying' their lusts I now 'own' them). It appears I must keep an eye on you from now on for my 'good.'" (This is the true meaning of "sight based management.") It is in the dialectic (dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process), "group grade," facilitated, "Bloom's Taxonomy" classroom that Marxism, socialism, psychotherapy, Communism-Fascism, i.e., Globalism has been and continues to be propagated in this nation (and around the world)—negating the earthly father's authority in the home and the Heavenly Father's authority in the individuals thoughts, directly effecting his or her actions, negating the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people or person is stimulating. Mao's "long march" across America began in earnest in the fifties and sixties with the introduction of "Bloom's Taxonomies" (Marxist curriculum) in the classroom. Their use continues to this day—unabated (not only in the public schools, but also the private, parochial, and even home schools today—putting the father's/Father's authority, i.e., established commands, rules, facts, and truth aside in order to "get along"). Any teacher questioning the use of "Bloom's Taxonomies," i.e., the dialectic process, i.e., the facilitation of 'change,' i.e., Marxism in the classroom today will be looking for another job (in another profession, if they can find one that is not doing the process), after being silenced, censored ('labeled' as being unfit to teach), and "terminated" (negated). The same applies to anyone questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking the process of 'change,' i.e., Marxism, socialism, psychotherapy, Communism-Fascism, i.e., Globalism, i.e., the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process, i.e., the facilitated meeting, i.e., the 'justification' of "lust" ("self"), i.e., the "building of relationships upon self interest," establishing self interest, i.e., lust, i.e., "human nature" over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority wherever they work, play, and/or worship.
"It is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23
Leaving the father/Father, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., the father's/Father's will out of your conversation with your self and with others—so you can do wrong disobey, sin, i.e., so you can lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people or person is stimulating without having a guilty conscience (removing anyone who gets in the way of pleasure, including the unborn, the elderly, the innocent, the righteous)—is the hallmark of Marxism, i.e., the so called "new world order," with the facilitator of 'change,' who 'justifies' lust and the world that stimulates it, i.e., the flesh (which is passing away) in control (of "the people's" mind, i.e., what information—"positive," "appropriate" information— they can think on and say, effecting their actions and the actions of others) instead of the father/Father, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth which (under the Father's authority) deals with the soul (which is eternal). Academics, which deals with the creation (which God created) and behavior (which God has established the standards for) is now Marxist, void of the father's/Father's authority (accountability for ones thoughts and actions according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth), with pleasure, i.e., lust, i.e., the "eternal present" being the 'drive' of life and its augmentation the 'purpose,' requiring the negation of the father's/Father's authority in order to "actualize" it.
