dialectical diabolical formula)
Understanding "Hegel's" diabolical 'A plus negative A equals A' formula.
"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
"For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God." Romans 10:3
"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25
Dialectical 'reasoning' Liberates Sensuousness from the system of Righteousness, i.e. Liberates the Children from the Father, so that all can become one in Sensuousness (it's how pedophiles work)―Dialectical 'reasoning' is abomination, i.e. the pathway to death and eternal damnation; "It is not how far down the road you've gone, it's the road you're on." You can't be half pregnant or partly defiled or pure:
In dialectical thought there is a condition which resides within each party, a resentment toward being told what is good and what is evil (being told what to do and how to do it) and being forced to think this way when it inhibits or blocks their personal desires and/or does not seem relevant to their "sense perception" of the situation, i.e. of how things 'ought' to be according to their "sensuous needs" of the 'moment.' Those who think dialectically conclude that since resentment is engendered by the system of Righteousness, 'repressing' man's natural system of sensuousness, 'resentment' or dissatisfaction is a key component of man's nature, providing him a way of thinking and acting which will lead him to his own self 'discovery,' dialectically discovering his true identity with the world, i.e. with Nature, i.e. with the world spirit. It is in this spirit that the dialectical process has its 'drive' and its 'purpose.' (It is chastening which chases "dissatisfaction," i.e. the world spirit out of the mind, heart, and soul of the child). The 'purpose' of dialectic thinking is to continue the process until sensuousness (man) is liberated of all restraints of righteousness (God) and all can follow, uninhibited with a 'guilty conscience,' the lawless one, i.e. spirit of the Antichrist, the world spirit of global oneness, all mankind united in the name of and for the cause of 'humanity.'
"Spirit, in so far as it is the Spirit of God, is not a spirit beyond the stars, beyond the world [righteousness over and above sensuousness]. On the contrary, God is present, omnipresent, and exists as spirit in all spirits ['righteousness' in and of sensuousness]." (Hegel) bracketed information added
While Marx countered Hegel with: "In direct contrast to German philosophy, which descends from heaven to earth, here we ascend from earth to heaven." (Karl Marx, MEGA I/5) he could not (nor intended to) change the source and outcome of the dialectical process, sin. "Not feeling at home in the sinful world [man living in a world defined by God], Critical Criticism [the 'reasoning' of man] must set up a sinful world [a world of sensuousness] in its own home." (Karl Marx The Holy Family Chapter VII Critical Criticism's Correspondence 1; The Critical Mass) bracketed information added This is the motto of the "new" world order. Although Karl Marx "turned Hegel on his head," i.e. turned the dialectical process "right side up," making the sensuousness and 'reasoning' nature of man the "omnipresent ... spirit in all spirits," redefining Hegel's "Spirit of 'God'" as the sensuous nature of society, with a world of individual men becoming as one, i.e. individual men uniting as a society of one, the "separated parts" becoming the whole, the "divine sparks" becoming (returning) as one 'God,' the sensuousness of man and the sensuousness of the world, rationally (theoretically) and actively (practically) becoming as the one and "all," he only ended up secularizing Satanism, intellectualizing witchcraft, leaving the spirit of darkness, the father of lies, still in his 'high' place doing his evil praxis on the earth, only now clothed in the garb of doing academics, business, and government (even in the church "doing business" for the 'purpose' of "growth"), with everything becoming one under his influence and power.
"For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High." Isaiah 14:13, 14 It is that same spirit of resentment against authority (against God and His unchanging Word) which resides in the hearts of men. This is the spirit and spiritual structure from which Hegel, Marx, Freud, and all who sought and continue to seek a 'new' order of the world take their instructions. A "new" order of the world of Satan's "I will," built upon the sensuousness of 'changingness,' becoming god, rejecting the "old" world order of "Thy will be done," built upon God's everlasting righteousness, all that is created being God's. "The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein." Psalms 24:1
"In the beginning man gives birth to himself, he becomes what he potentially is [a sensuous and 'rational' being]. He became what Satan― the symbol of wisdom and rebellion―promised and which the patriarchal God of Adam did now wish, that man would become God himself." (Erick Fromm, You shall be as gods) bracketed information added It is not about academics, social ills, and race, i.e. humanity. It has never been about academics, social ills, and race, i.e. humanity. It has always been about righteousness and eternal life (only imputed to those who believe in the Lord) and wickedness and eternal death (which is of this present world, the world of sensuousness and human 'reasoning', under the influence of the spirit of darkness, "the prince of the power of the air." Ephesians 2:2).
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others." Ephesians 6:12; 2:2, 3
Flesh and blood (sensuousness) and the kingdom of God (righteousness), i.e. doing the will of your father in heaven:
To maintain life, physical, mental, and socially, support from the one in authority and those who follow him is essential, thus the person abdicates ("suppresses") his 'right' of self-sensuousness, abdicates his will of 'self' fulfillment to the fulfillment of higher authority's will, i.e. supporting his right of sensuousness, as higher authority serves and protects him from the 'evils' of his nature and the 'evils' of others who are not under his authority. While this is true of mankind (who is sensuous) it is not true of God (who is Spirit). God's kingdom is not created and sustained by the flesh and blood of man, subject to and built upon mans sensuousness and 'reasoning'. It is built upon doing the Father's will. God is not made by man, i.e. by human 'reasoning', i.e. made in man's image, to be sensuous, but rather man is made in God's image, to be righteous in Him. Because man is made a "living soul" (eternal) he is more than sensuousness and 'reasoning' (temporal), he was created righteous before the fall and is recreated in righteousness ("made a new creature") in Christ, to all who believe upon him, to appear righteous before his Holy, Pure, and Righteous heavenly father. All who reject the Lord (continuing in the praxis of 'justifying' their sensuousness through their own 'reasoning') reject His righteousness, and all who reject His righteousness (which is imputed by the Lord to men of faith) reject the Lord. Without that righteousness which is imputed by Christ alone, man "cannot inherit the kingdom of God." Apart from Christ (except by His righteousness alone) "no man cometh unto the Father."
"Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption." 1 Corinthians 15:50 "For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." "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 12:50; 7:21 "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your father, which is in heaven." Matthew 23:9 "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." Matthew 6:9, 10 "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 Bold added for emphasis to all verses above
"Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;" Titus 2:12 "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ." John 1:17 "Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: that as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord." "What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace. God forbid." "What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet." Romans 5:20-21; 6:15; 7:7 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill." Matthew 5:17 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God." Ephesians. 2:8 "Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:" Romans 3:24 "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins." Ephesians 1:7 "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12 "For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world." 2 Corinthians 1:12
'Reasoning,' initiated by and justifying Sensuousness, over and against the system of Righteousness, is of the Spirit of Antichrist, i.e. the 'Christ' who loves the world (temporal) over and against the only begotten son of God who loves the Father (spiritual):
This is where the dialectical process reveals its color, i.e. its spiritual agenda, i.e. the negation of that righteousness which can only come to man from God, the righteousness of Christ, freely imputed to all who believe upon him and obey his commands (Romans 4:1-25; vs. 6, 8, 11, 20-25; 5:13-17). By the negation of the system of Righteousness, the patriarchal paradigm, the father figure of the traditional home, from the minds of men, the father in Heaven is negated from the minds of all men. At least that is the dialectical hope, i.e. that hope is not found in God the creator of the world but rather is to be found in happiness, i.e. in pleasure, i.e. in "enjoyment," i.e. in the mind, i.e. in the emancipation of dopamine, i.e. in the environment, i.e. in the creation, i.e. in nature, i.e. in the things of this world. Without the hope provided by dialectical thought and action, according to dialectical thinking, mankind remains alienated to his own nature, others, and nature itself, his hope being subject to that which is not of his nature, his hope being subject to that will which is "alien" to his will.
"Tillich suggests that it would be better to let the giver of arbitrary laws to destroy us physically than to accept the psychological destruction that would accompany submission to an alien will." (Leonard Wheat, Paul Tillich's Dialectical Humanism)
"Alienation, according to Feuerbach, derives from the externalization (Entausserung) of human powers and possibilities upon a non-existent entity: God. God is thus the anthropological source of alienation . . ." (Stephen Eric Bronner, Of Critical Theory and Its Theorists)
God, in dialectical thought, is that authority who resides outside the cosmos, i.e. beyond the creation, who is not part of nor dependent upon any part of it, for his existence. While work, for instance, under the system of Righteousness: faith, belief, obedience, and chastening, is "to pay the rent" ("work by the sweat of your brow"), under the system of 'reasoning': seduction, deception, and manipulation, it is for the purpose of "entertainment," i.e. to support the system of sensuousness ("eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage"), i.e. all is aimed at supporting those who "work" at initiating and sustaining the system of 'reasoning.' The believers labor of love emanates from the Lords love for him and the Lords love in him, i.e. love emanating from what the Lord has done for him and is doing in him, and not out of his vain desires, i.e. man's love being vain no matter how 'good' or beneficial it may appear to be to others. Jesus himself testified of the difference between doing man's sensuous will (by sight or appearance) and God's righteous will (according to His word, by faith).
"Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him." "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." John 7:-
Work, in the righteousness of Christ, is to the praise of God ("doing your best as unto the Lord"). God does not 'need' our praise and worship of him. He deserves our praise and worship of him. Our labor is not to appease him (as it is to man, i.e. for his carnal pleasures) but of him (out of His love for us and His love within us). The 'righteousness' of man (of the systems of sensuousness and 'reasoning'), perceived as being the righteousness of God (which is only of himself alone), is the spirit of Antichrist. While man is building his "communities" of sensuousness, for his 'good' pleasure, the Lord is preparing a city of righteousness, for those who believe upon him.
Sensuousness is Global (Common-ism)―Righteousness is 'God' and Country (Fascist) in dialectic thinking:
Thus in dialectical thought, by mankind yielding to the system of Righteousness, accepting right and wrong "as given" by a higher authority than one's own nature, i.e. honoring the father figure, obeying his commands, and accepting the consequence of disobedience, i.e. chastening, division is created between a man and his own sensuous nature, the sensuous nature of others, and nature itself. But by embracing the system of sensuousness, i.e. building upon that which is common to all mankind and nature itself (no longer being in 'denial' of himself), unity is created between a man and his own nature, others, and nature itself. How to accomplish unity, i.e. circumvent the system of Righteousness in order to negate it, is the main objective of those using (possessed by) the dialectical process. Their challenge is to engender and sustain 'reasoning' through sensuousness, i.e. negating the system of Righteousness, without the system of Righteousness rising up and winning the day, i.e. without mankind returning to making his reasoning, and thus his sensuousness, subject to the system of Righteousness.
In dialectical thought, the praxis of accepting God as the creator of the world and thus making all mankind accountable to his will is tantamount to mankind following after fascism.
". . . should fascism become a powerful force in this country, it would parade under the banners of traditional American democracy. . . ‘rugged individualism'" "It is a well-known hypothesis that susceptibility to fascism is most characteristically a middle-class phenomenon, that it is ‘in the culture' and, hence, that those who conform the most to this culture will be the most prejudiced [this hypothesis by Adorno, being used around the world to justify the destruction of the middle-class, has been proven false over and over again, but persists in being the banner cry of all globalists, i.e. the justification for spreading Marxist style Democracy around the world, destroying nations which have a family based structure]." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality)
"The authoritarian family becomes the factory in which the state's structure and ideology are molded." (Wilhelm Reich, The Mass Psychology of Fascism) According to Adorno, Reich, Marx, Freud, and others who think dialectically, Fascism (nationalism, capitalism, isolationism, imperialism, anti-socialism, etc) is 'created' in the "breeding ground" of the traditional family, i.e. created by the next generation being raised within the "authoritarian" family structure, supported and protected by traditional minded (righteousness minded) citizens who themselves were raised within the traditional family structure, i.e. all seeking to protect the "authoritarian" family (according to Adorno and Reich), protecting the environment which engenders "potential fascist," from the environment which initiates and sustains the process of 'change,' i.e. internationalism, globalism, socialism, humanism (humanitarianism), environmentalism ("greening"-ism, nature-ism), democratization, conscietization, etc., i.e. common-ism, i.e. "'diversity' in unity," i.e. if it can't be united it is of the divisive-ness (duality, "fixity") of righteousness and not of the diversity (spectrum, 'changingness') of sensuousness.
The error in correlating the traditional family to fascism is due to the nature of the dialectical process itself (the negation of the patriarchal paradigm/righteousness being its 'drive' and 'purpose'). Having rejected man as being wicked, in and of himself, blaming environmental conditions instead, whether it be a race, religion, or way of thinking which is to blame, those who are bound to the process must find their solution to life's problems in the changing of cultural conditions, i.e. in the removal of a race, a religion, or a paradigm from the environment, if it's outcome of "peace and justice" is to be realized. The protestant reformation was a liberation from such thinking in that the "priesthood of all believers" came from the recognition of God (righteousness) being the Father over the individual (sensuousness), and not the church, the state, or society (sensuousness), thus liberating the individual (his soul) from church-state totalitarianism (sensuousness) while retaining the church and the state, all without negating the patriarchal paradigm (righteousness), even the "earthly family" being subject to the "heavenly families" work in the heart of its individual members, i.e. the work of Godly righteousness. "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it." Matthew 10:34-39
In a class I took, under Dr. Poteet, I remember studying a book by Allen, entitled Northeim, Nazi Seizure of Power, a book explaining in some detail how the Fascist were able to take control of the village of Northeim, Germany. I remember my teacher commenting that the title was an incorrect interpretation of the Fascist take over of the village, that they had not seized power but rather that it was abdicated to them. I now know he was wrong in that the Fascist were able to seize power, but that it was from the socialists-globalist (Transformational Marxist) movement they seized it (you can call it any name you want, their foundation was Marx's theory, i.e. critical theory being put into social praxis).
Allen, in his book, focused upon how the Fascist were able to take control of the clubs (chess clubs, walking clubs, etc.) of the German communities, using propaganda and intimidation (and force, i.e. violence, when necessary, as it is always necessary for any form of socialism to succeed, despite its propaganda promising "freedom"). The Transformational Marxists, Kurt Lewin, during the war (after fleeing to America from Berlin), made comment on how the Fascist were able to take control of groups and that a similar pattern had to be accomplished by the globalists (Transformational Marxists) as well, if they were to succeed in their agenda of world domination, in their creating of a "new" world order.
The only difference between National socialism (fascism) and Global socialism (democracy, i.e. democratization) is how the group perceives the world. For those under control of the Nationalists, it is an "us against them" (inlanders-outlanders, "ingroup-outgroup") paradigm (incorrectly correlated with the traditional, patriarchal paradigm by the Globalists―righteousness not being a part of their formula), while for the Globalists it is simply "we," all others counter to the social mind being irrational and therefore irrelevant (not being part of the "we" yet, still "win-lose" and not "win-win" yet). Yet all forms of socialism must destroy the traditional family, i.e. annihilate the patriarchal paradigm, if they are to be 'successful' in their endeavor. "In a democratic society a patriarchal culture should make us depressed instead of glad; it is an argument against the higher possibilities of human nature, of self actualization." "Self-actualizing people have to a large extent transcended the values of their culture. They are not so much merely Americans as they are world citizens, members of the human species first and foremost." (Abraham Maslow, The Further Reaches of Human Nature) Socialism (democracy) must advance itself by force when it perceives it is necessary. "Sometimes people must rather forcefully be made to see what democratic responsibility toward the group as a whole means." (Kurt Lewin in Kenneth Bennie, Human Relations in Curriculum Change) emphasis added
It is only by limiting the power of government (separating the branches of power, limiting their jurisdiction) that the patriarchal, traditional family can survive. Limiting the power of government is anathema to socialism of any kind, including "democracy," which is just a more subtle version of global socialism, as Maslow's and Lewin's statements above revealed. Call it democracy all you want is still socialism, i.e. common-ism (with a smile) leading man down the pathway of totalitarianism.
In Germany, the Fascists did seize power, but it was seized, not from the families, but from the Common-ists (who were themselves setting policies which were anathema to the traditional, according to Adorno―a Transformational Marxist―"autocratic," "authoritarian" family structure, i.e. the patriarchal family. Thus abdicating his office of authority under God, the father of the German family turned to the Fascist propaganda of the Folk (to the state) for 'help' against the Common-ist agenda of annihilating the traditional family. Rejecting righteousness as a way out of totalitarianism (classifying it as a tool for totalitarianism) Adorno's dialectical logic went: "It would then be more understandable why the German family, with its long history of authoritarian, threatening father figures, could become susceptible to a fascist ideology." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality) The true is: when the family turned to national socialism to rescue itself from global socialism (instead of to the Lord) the father's authority over the home was destroyed. It was the fathers abdication of the family structure to the state (giving the government greater powers in an effort to rescue the family from government control―you don't have to think to hard on that one to see the outcome) which resulted in the disasters of Europe (the same disaster which is happening to America today, only in a more controlled way, i.e. rust is fire, just slower in its destructive ways, the end result being the same, in this case the negation of righteousness in the thoughts and actions of the people).
While the Transformational Marxists (socio-psychologists) of America seek to prevent Fascism (nationalism) again, by the negation of the traditional home, it is the fathers of the families who are again abdicating their position of authority over the home, under God, by turning to the government (state and church) for help, empowering the government rather than limiting its powers, under God. As God told Adam (not the woman) to 'rule,' when he abdicated righteousness for sensuousness sake, "empowering" himself, following the "empowered" woman, following the counsel of, the facilitation of the Devil, taking 'control' over his own life, i.e. negating top-down authority, under God, by 'discovering' equality with the creation, we see the same message and outcome in America today. God's instructions being ignored, i.e. husbands and fathers refusing to trust in and obey the Lord, instead trusting in themselves―leaning upon their own understanding, tuning to the 'wisdom' (philosophy and vain speculations) of men (socio-psychology). The fathers have given up, abdicating their office of authority, and thus sacrifice their families to the social cause, as they seek after the things of this world, including the approval of men for the sake of survival, thus building their foundation no longer upon the solid rock of righteousness, but instead building it upon the shifting sands of sensuousness, letting sensuousness negate righteousness for the sake of "peace" in the home and "justice" in the community. Totalitarianism awaits.
"Now that we know how positive reinforcement [dialoguing sensuousness; seduction, deception, and manipulation] works, and why negative [preaching and teaching righteousness; obedience and chastening] doesn't ... we can be more deliberate and hence more successful in our cultural design. We can achieve a sort of control under which the controlled, though they are following a code much more scrupulously than was ever the case under the old system, nevertheless feel free. They are doing what they want to do, not what they are forced to do. That's the source of the tremendous power of positive reinforcement―there's no restrain and no revolt. By a careful design, we control not the final behavior, but the inclination to behavior―the motives, the desires, the wished. The curious thing is that in that case the question of freedom never arises." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)
The child's "heart of hearts":
Like a disobedient child, the greatest fear of those who use the dialectical though process (sensuousness and 'reasoning') as the only means to knowing the 'truth,' is that the righteous one (the parent) will one day reappear and expose their sensuousness and 'reasoning' as wickedness and judge them for their evil ways. Rejecting God, they foolishly, turn to human nature and human 'reasoning' as the only way to overcome their dreaded man of righteousness and the system of Righteousness, all be it in a human form, i.e. Hitler. Thus the Karl Marx in your child's 'heart of hearts' (when properly 'coached') perceives the parent, who chastens him, repressing his human nature, as a Hitler. It is here that "making the world 'safe for democracy'" has its 'drive' and its 'purpose,' i.e. the negation of the system of Righteousness, i.e. wiping sovereignty, nationalism, isolationism, imperialism, i.e. Fascism and the traditional family structure which initiates and sustains it i.e. the "authoritarian" family being the seed bed of Fascism (according to the global socialists interpretation), off the face of the earth by creating a "new" world order of sensuousness and 'reasoning,' (via the soviet style of equalization and citizen "empowerment"―a diverse group of people-tolerant of the deviant, dialoguing to consensus, over social issues, in a facilitated meeting, to a pre-determined outcome that all thoughts and actions of life, i.e. policies of life will be resolved through this soviet method, engendering "fraternity, equality, and liberty," amongst the common-ist 'citizens' of the common-unity, all united in the praxis of negation the system of Righteousness, i.e. 'liberating' the child's "heart of hearts" (his sensuous nature) from the repressive nature of the "authoritarian" father figure (from Godly righteousness). the system of Righteousness is not heartless or uncaring (as dialectical thinkers classify it), it just knows what is good and what is evil and does not let the deceitful and wicked heart of the child manipulate it into 'justifying' evil. It prevents the child from blindly following after sensuousness, thinking that it can "see," i.e. 'justify' its actions, and end up harming itself and others. In the act of chastening, for righteousness sake, the parent's love for the child is manifested. His love is revealed in his caring for the child (feeding, sheltering, protecting, and instructing him in the ways of righteousness, i.e. encouraging him in doing what is right and admonishing him when he does wrong). "Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?" Matthew 7:9-11
Starting with Sensuousness, not Righteousness, changes the "negative" environment of 'unchangingness' (do what I say when I say it, or else) into a "positive" environment of 'change' (do as you will, i.e. as long as it does no 'harm' to others or it is 'good' for all):
"Thinking through the process it is dialectically faulty to start with the negative, with anxiety." (J. L. Moreno, Who Shall Survive) Thus in dialectical thought it is "faulty" to begin with that which divides both parties (righteousness, doing that which is right according to the parent or God's will as opposed to what you and/or the 'group' wants to do), that which makes them different, thus reinforcing the conscience (the sense of guilt for not obeying the parent or God). This only leads to more animosity, with one side either accumulating information to help support his position and/or weakening the other side's ability to do the same (quantity). By building relationships between all parties in a 'non-hostile' environment (non-righteous environment), sensuousness can come to the forefront, and 'reasoning' (humanity, i.e. the unrighteous, sensuous 'child within') can prevail over the system of Righteousness (the parent and God).
'Reasoning' through sensuousness desensitizes a person to the system of Righteousness (the parent and God) and righteousness (God). He can then do unthinkable (unrighteous―abominable) things, even in the name of 'righteousness' (in the name of society):
By both parties 'discovering' that their position is not "their" position, i.e. a position built upon their own sensuous nature and their own sensuous 'reasoning', but that their position is actually a higher authorities position, a position of righteousness that they have accepted by faith, i.e. accepted out of the fear of chastening, they come to 'realize' that it is only within their own "senses experiences" that 'truth' ('reality') resides. That being the case, their only objective, i.e. 'purpose' in and 'drive' of life, is to rationally initiate and sustain a world of sensuousness (negating the system of Righteousness as the 'purpose' and 'drive' of life) via. the individual-social praxis of the dialectical process of 'changingness.'
R(-s) + -R(-s) = 'R', i.e. "Hegel's" 'A + -A = A', is sensuousness, according to dialectical 'reasoning,' being liberated out from under the restraints of the system of Righteousness, thereby negating righteousness, thus producing a 'reasonable' (practical) world of sensuousness, "sense perceived" (dialectically 'justified') by all of mankind as being 'Righteous,':
By mankind finding common ground through the praxis of consensus, i.e. 'rationally' building upon his own sensuousness, the system of Righteousness, which causes division amongst men, can be negated and oneness (the 'new' world order) can be actualized. "Getting in touch with your feelings." and "Can't we all just get along?" can then come together in a 'moment' of "truth," in a sensuous 'moment' of oneness and pleasure.
"'Truth' is a moment in correct praxis." (Antonio Gramsci, The Prison Notebooks)
Bloom's "Cognitive Domain Taxonomy" (a sociological-psychological classification system) when put into praxis in the contemporary classroom follows the same "Hegelian" formula: Knowing is the father stating, "You can not go out." Now the child knows. Comprehension is the father looking the child in the eyes and stating, "Do you understand what I just said? ("Do you understand what I mean?"). Now the child understands he had better not go out or he will be punished. This is a thesis condition where faith, belief, obedience, and the acceptance of chastening from the parent or God for doing wrong is required. According to Bloom, this is indicative of "lower order thinking skills." Application might be the child instead feeling like going out and then doing so. Analysis is the child knowing how important knowing is as dad is taking him to the "wood shed," i.e. chastening him. This is an antithesis condition where a person is caught between their righteous belief, given by the teacher or parent, and their sensuous behavior, of their own nature (a time of doubting, questioning, and confusion). Synthesis is where Bloom then takes the class, where every child must praxis sin, i.e. where every child must experience for himself 'discovering' for himself what is good and what is evil, guided by his own sensuous nature and his own sense 'driven' 'reasoning,' i.e. in the "light" of others sensuous nature and sense 'driven' 'reasoning' ('driven' by the "sensuous needs" of survival and the approval of others, both of "sense perception," one internal the other external, both manifest a fear of the loss of the pleasures of this world, "of nature only"). Evaluation is therefore the same system of 'reasoning' as was used by the woman in the garden in Eden, i.e. the system of 'reasoning' ("higher order thinking skills") used in 'justifying' the negation of the system of Righteousness, i.e. God's warning of "lest ye die" is "sense perceived" as being irrational, in the "light" of the "sensuous need" to "touch" and the 'sense based evidence' that the tree will be 'good' for them (all of the 'moment') and therefore his command, not to eat of "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil," becomes irrelevant in the "light" of her 'here-and-now' "sense experience." In his praxis of the dialectical process man is moved from placing his faith in God ("trusting in the Lord with all his heart") to trusting in his own sight ("leaning to his own understanding"), thus 'changing' himself and the world around him from righteousness and life to sensuousness and death. Take a generation of students through Bloom's Taxonomies and they will not longer need (and thus will negate) the Ten Commandments, prayer to the Lord, the Word of God, and chastening for doing wrong in their life experience, sensuousness negating righteousness will become the 'drive' and the 'purpose' of life.
"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." "For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." 1 Corinthians 2:14, 21 emphasis added
"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith [reprobate: of no judgment]." 2 Timothy 3:1-8 emphasis added
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!" Isaiah 5: 20, 21
"Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core." Jude 1:11
Like the spider and the fly, all who enter into the dialectical lair, never come out. The 'boarders' of a dialectical country are not there to keep the deviant from entering, they are there to keep the righteous from escaping its intended 'purpose,' the negation of the system of Righteousness in their lives. "For a state to become a state it is necessary that the citizen cannot continually think of emigrating, but that the class of cultivators, no longer able to push to the outside, presses upon itself and is gathered into cities and urban professions. ... for a real state and a real government only develop when there is a difference of classes, when riches and poverty become very large and a situation arises where a great number of people can no longer satisfy its needs in the accustomed way." (Hegel quoted in Carl Friedrich, The Philosophy of Hegel) Thus the dialectical process is not successful until no one can escape. All must participate if it is be successful. "We will leave no child (or adult) behind." and "All children (and adults) are 'at risk'." take on new meaning when you realize the intended purpose of those pushing (by force when necessary) their "Democratic ideal" upon all the world, all being done for the 'purpose' of 'global governance.'
You can not have faith in God, i.e. fear God and love His Word, and participate in the dialectical process. I have never met a minister of the Church Growth, Emerging Church, Mega Church crowd who fears God and loves His Word. They all champion dialogue. They are all in love with their own and other's opinions of God's Word. When they preaching and teaching the Word of God itself, they do so only to silent any opposition to their "new" program of 'change.' In this they reveal their love for the approval of men and their love of the pleasures of this life, hiding their wolf nature under the cover of "saving the lost" for Jesus, while growing (synergizing) 'His' church and 'His' Kingdom through their polls, surveys, and feasibility studies, i.e. through the use of human sensuousness and 'reasoning' skills. It is upon this foundation (the dialectical process of seduction, deception, and manipulation, i.e. sensuousness, lies, and exploitation) that the harlot church and beast unite, with the beast destroying the whore (the sensuous 'church') in the end.
"And what concord [harmony] hath Christ with Belial?" 2 Corinthians 6:15.
"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other. . .Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Matthew 6:24
The violent praxis of "Hegel's" 'A plus -A equals A' formula:
While the formula calls for the removal from society of that which blocks nature it does not change the hate nature of man, i.e. man's nature to "have it his way or else." Whether done by command of others or from one's own desires, violence results in a change of the environment, via. the use of violent death (including hastened death, i.e. "non-lethal-weapons" which expedite death). While the system of Righteousness chastens the individual, which is "grievous for a season," the dialectic process kills in mass, with violent death (disconcerting those who might live on) . Since 'perception' rules the minds of men, all acts of violence, done by those promoting "Hegel's" formula upon others (unborn babies, believers, elderly) are extrapolated from the media (visual and mental awareness is minimized, redefined, or 'justified' to advance the process) while all effort is made to 'expose' any act of violence (including acts of defense) done by those 'opposing' the process, any act of violence done by those defending the system of Righteousness from the violent attacks (emotional, mental, and physical attacks) perpetrated by those of the formula, any act of violence (physical, mental, and social response) done against those who are using the formula to promote "world peace" and "social harmony," is labeled as terroristic (or potential terroristic) behavior or anti-social behavior at the least. While no man can defend his faith, or righteousness itself (faith and righteousness defends the believer from the systems of sensuousness and 'reasoning,' from them becoming united over and united against faith and righteousness), the system of Righteousness must be defended if civil government is to prevail and tyranny is to be abated. God has not called believers to the use of violence to initiate and sustain 'change' as those who perpetuating the dialectical process think and do. "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord." Romans 12:19 "For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, fear him." Luke 12:2-5
Since the systems of sensuousness and 'reasoning' (self-social justification) do not tie to eternal consequences (the realization that all men will be held accountable for their thoughts and actions which are counter to God's will in this life, after this life), the 'good' life is "sense perceived" as being for the sensuous 'moment.' If environment change, i.e. the removal of barriers to a life of pleasure (for self and others), is the praxis of life, i.e. done for the sake of society (which has no soul other than perception, in one's mind) then the death of another person or of self is based upon the betterment of the environment for mankind in general and the individual in particular on a carnal level (dying with dignity meaning everybody 'feels good' about your death, including you, when it benefits society). Eat, drink, and be merry thus rules. When done on a global scale, violent death, while being labeled the result of the use of the system of Righteousness, ("It's something in the environments fault, not my fault") is multiplied exponentially by the use of the dialectical process (world wars and civil wars are engendered by it's use and used for its advancement). Justification of acts of violence for social and environmental causes (the negation of the conscience) results in a callous heart toward those of 'no worth,' i.e. those who do not praxis the dialectical process, as well as those who no longer are perceived as assisting in its advancement, i.e. who have served their time or whose demise can better serve the cause, according to some "consensus" group's collective opinion. All human praxis is for the sake of society and the environment. To question those who are 'guided' by the formula is to put oneself in peril.
In all cases the heart is not changed. Greed, vanity, and envy rule the day, only on a larger scale of silenced 'corporation' with the process, so that the individual (possessed by, i.e. justified by, 'group think') can 'live' in the pleasures of the approval of men for another day. Leaders of the world, driven by the approval of men and the pleasures of this life (as drug addicts) justify the 'collateral damage' done to millions in their efforts to save the 'world' from potential calamity, i.e. saving it from the effects of the system of Righteousness, i.e. saving it from 'alienation' and 'reification,' saving it from Armageddon. Lifting no finger to rescue the Righteousness when being violently killed (unless for controlling the perception of the masses, i.e. we 'care' for all people), it will spend all its effort in rescuing (liberating) those of the processes (Marxists, socialists, etc. i.e. socialists are actually Marxist who are in denial) from those of the system of Righteousness (now improperly, i.e. for ulterior motives, labeled as Fascist or potential Fascists―Adorno). Without changing the heart the object in the environment which is to be hated is all that is changed, with the environment, sensuousness and human 'reasoning' being the only guide in its 'justification.'
Death is no longer considered judgment for sin―with eternal consequences, but is just a passage of time for all to either collectively remember the person as a contributor to the process of 'humanity' or forget them as having been a waste of time, a burden upon society. History is expunged of remembrances of the 'moments' of Righteousness (only recorded as a time of repression and alienation) leaving only moments of sensuousness and 'reasoning' advancing the world to higher states of being, to be exonerated and advanced. Hate and violence (mental, physical and social) are now regarded as 'love' when done for the cause of humanity, turning God's love, chastening man to bring him to righteousness, into an act of hate, an act of violence against human nature, an act which is to be hated by all mankind, with all mankind united in one dialectical voice of 'consensus' over and against it, it being righteousness. With righteousness no longer on the mind man, death no longer has a sting. "The style of integrity developed by his culture or civilization thus becomes the ‘patrimony of his soul,' the seal of his moral paternity of himself." "Before this final solution, death loses its sting." (David Krathwohl, Benjamin Bloom Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: Book II Affective Domain) This would be just some more social-psychological jargon if it were not for the fact that it is from the textbook which all certified teachers and all accredited schools must base their curriculum development upon. "Death loses its sting" not because of righteousness and eternal life (from God) but rather because of the negation of them―the approval of men and social praxis negating the "guilty conscience."
In the end, the eternal consequence for one's thoughts and actions (the fear of judgment for one's praxis against righteousness) is abated by a person's (or the next generation's) participation within the dialectical formula of social 'change.' Death is no longer recognizes as the consequence of sin but has becomes a social 'moment,' a time of passing by one so that all can come together, united in a 'moment' of remembrance for their social contribution.
Hate of sin is displaced with hate of righteousness. The righteous (the haters of sin) are now perceived as being haters of humanity―haters of human-unity. No longer perceived as being an act of hate but rather as being a praxis of love for human-unity (sensuousness), hate of righteousness is thus dialectically 'justified.' It is the same spirit of vanity, pride, and envy which 'drove' men to put Jesus (righteousness) on the Cross, the spirit of human-unity (the 'love' of sensuousness dialectically 'justified' as being 'righteousness' instead).
What can you do to stop the spread of this diabolical process?:
Repent of your sins before the Lord, trust in him with all your heart, lean not upon your own dialectical 'reasoning', preach and teach the truth of His righteousness, and let him direct your steps, enduring the hate of the world toward you (his righteousness in you) to the end, holding fast to that which he has given you, i.e. His Word, to the death. "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Philippians 1:21
"O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23b
The praxis of sensuousness and 'reasoning' negates the system of Righteousness by making itself 'righteousness':
By changing the work environment from an environment of the system of Righteousness (didactic 'reasoning', patriarchal paradigm, where everyone does what the boss says, or else ...) into a permissive environment of sensuousness and humanistic 'reasoning' (dialectic 'reasoning', where a deviant group, i.e. men and women working together, dialoguing to consensus, over social issues, in a facilitated meeting, must always come to a pre-determined outcome that no decision is to be made without first going through the sensuous dialectical process, where human relationship building―initiating and sustaining common-ism―becomes the 'driving purpose' for life), because the work environment is carried back into the home, the home environment, a patriarch environment of right and wrong, where chastening and love, i.e. chastening and the system of Righteousness go hand in hand (Hebrews 12:5-11), where the husband rules, the desire of the heart of the wife is to her husband, and children obey their parents, in the Lord, is 'changed' into an environment of sensuousness and humanistic 'reasoning' (Genesis 3:1-6), an environment of permissiveness and unrighteousness, where unrighteousness, i.e. the sensuous will of the children, 'influences and monopolizes' the home experience. In this way the conscience, which is developed in the patriarchal home, which ties a person to the system of Righteousness, is negated with the dialectically development of the super-ego, which 'rationally' ties the person to his sensuousness and the sensuousness of the 'village.' Both the individual and the 'village,' i.e. the deviant group, are united within a common sensuous 'moment' of common sensuous 'reasoning', 'discovering ' developing, and sustaining a world which continuously uses the dialectical process in developing and sustaining all workplace, home, and common-unity policies, all working and living within in a common sensuous-'reasoning' experience.
"Teambuilding," building of human relationships, encounter groups, etc. are all the product of a system where: 1) a diverse group of people (plurality negating duality), 2) dialoguing to consensus (opinions negating righteousness, i.e. negating the preaching and teaching of truth), 3) over social issues (the temporal-man negating the spiritual-of God), 4) in a facilitated meeting (the manipulation of feelings and thoughts which speaks to the heart and head of man negating the persuasion of logic and truth based upon righteousness which speaks to the soul of man), 5) to a pre-determined outcome that all must participate in the these five steps every time a decision is to be made. This is a soviet system. The idea being that with the use of this dialectical system in setting policy, the top-down system of "representation" is negated. While people may vote for a particular person to occupy an office in government (be it legislative, executive, or judicial), by departments using the soviet system in assisting him in making policy and then carrying out government initiated agendas ("to serve the people"), unelected people (who have not sworn to defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic) now make laws, enforce them, judging and punishing those who do not obey them "for the common good." With the networking between all branches of government, via these soviets (where all branches of government are united when the soviets under each branch unit with the soviets of the other branches as one) we now have a politburo form of government, all 'driven' in the 'purpose' of "making the world safe for democracy."
The individual from then on only has worth as he 'willingly' (for personal survival and the desire for approval of others, i.e. for the 'common good') participates within the process and works for the continuous improvement of a social-istic workplace, home, and common-unity, i.e. world peace and social harmony (all citizens working together for a common sensuous cause, i.e. the augmentation of the sensuousness of pleasure for "the all"), and he 'willingly' sustains the development of a workplace, home, and common-unity built upon the scientific, material-istic, human-istic, common-istic, sensuousness-'reasoning' 'unifying' method called the dialectic process, or else .... The righteous individual has, from then on, no say on matters of the workplace, home, and country, unless he also bends his knees to the abominable dialectical beast and 'discovers' his sensuous 'child within' and 'rationally' joins with the rest of the children (in adult bodies) in their annihilation of the patriarchal father figure, i.e. the negation of the system of Righteousness from man's thoughts and from his common-unity praxis.
This is the pattern applied to all institutions, including the 'church,' i.e. the apostate, harlot, whorish (synergistic, emergent) church. All working together for the sake of negating the patriarch home and its father figure from the mind of the individual (theory) and from the actions of society (practice), i.e. and thereby negating belief in the Righteous, Pure, Holy, unchanging God of absolutes, i.e. God defining good and evil according to His eternally established will, condemning all to Hell who refuse to do it his way: "Be ye perfect as I am perfect," which requires our repentance (godly sorrow) for our wickedness in trying to be as a 'god' ('reasoning' good and evil according to our sensuousness). And is only possible because of His mercy, His grace, and His righteousness.
This is what theory and practice is all about. It is the illusion of building of a 'better' person, home, church, workplace, common-unity, and world through the praxis of the dialectical process, i.e. negating the system of Righteousness, negating what those who facilitate and participate in it perceive as the cause of division, dissention, and war in the person, home, church, workplace, common-unity, and the world, i.e. negating the system of Righteousness (the father) from restraining sensuousness (the child's love of self and the world) from uniting with 'reasoning' (the collective), and then 'reasoning' (the self will with the collective will) justifying sensuousness (hatred toward the father and his restraint upon the self and thus the collective), all united in the praxis of negating the system of Righteousness. And you thought it was all about building better houses, 'schools,' 'churches,' roads, cars, planes, and boats. Don't let your sensuousness and 'reasoning' blind you to the truth that it is all about His righteousness, and His righteousness alone (exposing your 'righteousness' as wickedness).
"This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness." Ephesians 4:17-19
"But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness." Ephesians 4:20-24
"Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Flee fornication (πορνεία porneia, which we get the word pornography from: includes adultery and incest).
"Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." 1 Corinthians 6:15-20
Without His righteousness, no matter how you feel, or what you think, you are going nowhere but 'down.' You can jump out of an airplane, twenty thousand feet above the ground without a parachute, and tell yourself "I don't feel" or "I don't think that there is such a thing as gravity" all you want, but eventually you are going to meet an object, and at that 'moment' it won't matter how you feel or what you think. Your opinion won't count.
Some day you are going to take your last breath, the last of all the breaths that God has given you. You might not feel or think he has given you every one of your breaths, that he is even giving you your next breath right now, instead denying him, but after the last breath he gives you, you are meeting an object. You are meeting God who gave you all the breaths of your life (given you that you might, knowing his love, mercy, and grace and praise and worship him as your savior and Lord). But at that moment, after your last breath, your opinion that God is not the source of your life, that there is no heaven or hell (rejecting that he alone is the one who determines, according to His will, i.e. according to His work, who will spend eternity where), your dialectical ('A + -A = A') opinion, united with all the opinions of the world, won't count―John 3:16.
"Every one that is proud in heart [thinking that he can 'direct' his own steps] is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished." Proverbs 16:5 bracketed information added
"Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." Mark 13:12
"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. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry." 2 Timothy 4:3-5
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Revelation 12:11
"Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers." Titus 1:9
Paul is encouraging those of faith to press on in the Lord's word, "and to convince the gainsayers," those who oppose themselves (Anti-Lego, in their use of the dialectical process), to know the truth (ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth), convincing them that there is a God who loves them, who is faithful to his word of mercy and grace to those who repent and turn from their wicked ways, who sent his only begotten son to die for their sins, taking their place of chastening, that they might come to the way, truth, and life which is only found in Christ, that they might come to know his righteousness, imputed to all who believe upon him, that they might turn away from the way of sensuousness, 'reasoning's,' and death and instead walk in the way of the Lord, in his righteousness and life, which is made available by God, i.e. our Heavenly Father, His only begotten Son, our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, to all who believe upon the him.
"As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne." Revelation 3:19-22 emphasis added
"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;" Ephesians 6:10-18 emphasis added
