The Law is Holy—Perfect

Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.  Romans 7:12

The law of the Lord is perfect, Psalms 19:7

There Is None Righteous—For All Have Sinned

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.  James 2:10

            For all have sinned.  Romans 3:23

There is none righteous, no, not one:  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.  Their throat is an open sepulcher; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:  their feet are swift to shed blood: destruction and misery are in their ways: and the way of peace have they not known: there is no fear of God before their eyes.  Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.  Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.  Romans 3:10-20

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

Jesus Fulfills The Law

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.  For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  Matthew 5:17-19

In Christ Only Is Condemnation Removed

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already. (John 3:18)

For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. (John 1:17)

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins. (Ephesians 1:7)

Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Romans 3:24)

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. (Romans 5:20-21)

What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace. God forbid. (Romans 6:15)

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)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. (Ephesians. 2:8)

Christ and Christ Alone!

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

Human relations Christianity—A False Gospel


And what concord [harmony] hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 2 Corinthians 6:15

Belial and deviancy are synonymous.  Throughout the scriptures men of Belial were referred to as perverse, vile, wicked men, who taunted and bore false witness against the righteous for personal gain.  They were able to seduce whole communities into protecting and defending them, even to the death and, like thistles, would harm anyone who tried to remove them by normal means.  Their constant aim was to separate the children of God from His authority.  One word sums up their art craft—deviancy.

Diaprax (the dialectic process acted out—praxis) and deviancy are likewise synonymous.  When it comes to morals and ethics, deviancy becomes the norm when one uses the dialectic process.  The person using it must deviate from any position they originally claimed was right and therefore become tolerant of, embrace, or become that which right classifies as wrong or evil.  The operative word under attack by the dialectic is the "negative," i.e. the restraining and judgmental word  "not," as in "Thou shalt not ...."

Whether it is Jesus Christ quoting scripture, "It is written. . ." and therefore "not" of man's opinions, i.e. by human perception, or the teacher telling her students that "two plus two is four" and can "not" have any other answer, i.e. all other responses are wrong, or the policeman reminding the youth that "It is illegal to use drugs," or the employer informing his employee that he "is fired" because he did "not" do things right, or the parent inculcating their children about what "is right" and what "is wrong," the word "not" always acknowledges accountability to a higher authority—whether it be to God ("I AM that I AM"), to the laws of nature, to the laws of the land, to the boss, or to the parent.

By promoting the "right" to deviate from what higher authority says "is not," the dialectic process challenges accountability to higher authority, i.e. the one who "is.".  It "rationally" justifies, to its participants, the "I have my rights" attitude and the disrespect for authority so blatantly being manifested in society today.  Belial and the dialectic process are both the same.  When Christian ministries use the dialectic process to promote their ministry, as is being done today, they will always have to deviate from the Word of God to justify "their ministry."

When it comes to the Word of God, men of faith, when asked to justify their faith, can only respond with "It is written." God's Word is the only truly objective view of mankind.  It is His Point of view, God breathed (inspired).  It is not man's point of view, private interpretation (dialectic), as are all the other religions of the world.

Because God's point of view is above man's, when it comes to scripture hard or impossible to understand through "rational" temporal means, all one can say is "It is written."  This kind of response is spiritual (inspired) and reveals Godly wisdom and is not dialectic reasoning (temporal-sensual) which leads to death.

"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." 1 Corinthians 2:14

"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 2:21

"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: or, of no judgment." 2 Timothy 3:1-8

"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

 Inspired understanding responds with "I know" and is willing to admit when it can not explain God's point of view to carnal satisfaction, yet responding with "nevertheless it is written."  Dialectic understanding seeks to make God's point of view equal to man's point of view by responding with either "I feel" or "I think" or "How do you feel?" or "What do you think?" in matters of scripture not clearly understood.

Almost five hundred years ago, Martin Luther wrote about the dangers of using human reasoning (the dialectic) to define God's point of view.  "Miserable Christians, whose words and faith still depend on the interpretations of men and who expect clarification from them!  This is frivolous and ungodly.  The Scriptures are common to all, and are clear enough in respect to what is necessary for salvation and are also obscure enough for inquiring minds. . . let us reject the word of man." (LW. V. 32, p. 217)

"I think" and "I feel" (our opinion) is the gray zone of human reasoning which has always deviated from the Word of God so it could be used for human agendas.  When "Christian ministries" use the dialectic process to "advance" the work of God, they have become the messengers of Belial and not Christ.  As Luther would say "because they teach not Christ but human reasoning. . .  Woe to these lost and dreadful men of Sodom and Gomorrah!"  (LW. V. 44, P. 200)  These are dialectic priests, who have simply covered themselves with scripture, so they can seduce souls to support them, in an effort to justify their evil affections.

 "Team building" is being used within the Church today.  It is dialectic.  Just question its use before any theology student, minister, or youth minister and see how quickly it is defended.  As in Baal worship, it will be more vehemently defended than the Word of God. Jesus tough (didactic) his "small group" of men, today, "ministers" dialogue (dialectic) with their small groups and call it being like Jesus.  This is deception and not of God.

The verb "is" (because God says so in his word) destroys the dialectic process.  Therefore, to exist, the dialectic must seduce those of faith to question their faith in "I AM."  God gives us all a measure of faith.  It is the master facilitator of the dialectic process (Satan) who always seeks ways in which he can seduce us (through our affections) into questioning our faith, so he can become the master of all things created.  The only way out of his grasp is in "I Am."  Jesus Christ is "I AM," "I am the way, the truth, and the life."  There is no other name under heaven whereby we must be saved.

Jesus never participated in the dialectic. He asked no man how he felt or what he thought in an effort to discover truth. He only asked for the facts. "Peter, who do you say that I am?" He only expected revelation from his Father to be the right source for answers. "And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." Matthew 16: 17, 18  The rock of the church is built upon God revealing himself unto his own not upon mans reasoned opinions of God. That revelation being: "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God." Matthew 16: 16

Jesus is not a team building, consensus seeking, role playing, psychodrama, sociodrama, sociometric, group dynamics, relationship building facilitator looking for social harmony and environmental oneness, savior.  A look at Christian material will more than likely reveal most if not all of these Belial-dialectic methods in them.  Let's put them to the side and get the Word of God out and preach and teach "It is written."

James Coleman

James Coleman, a socio-psychologist, earned his Doctorate at Columbia University, trained under the tutelage of the "Frankfurt School" Marxist Paul Lazarsfeld.  He wrote Equality of Opportunity in 1966.  It was used by the Supreme Court to help them solve educational issue.  His books have had a major influence in our society, so a look at them is essential if we are to have an understanding of what has happened to our educational system.

In 1957 Coleman wrote Community Conflict, a book on how conflicts arise in communities and how to control them in favor of a particular (socialist) outcome.  Controversies in a community, says Coleman, need "(1) the existence in the community of a few extreme activists, who gain moral support, and sometimes information, leaflets, etc., from national sources; (2) the existence of a national climate of fear and suspicion concerning internal subversion; (3) the lack of close and continued relations between school administration and community organizations representing conservative as well as liberal segments of the population." If any one of these is missing, controversy will be modified and controllable.

Without directly admitting that ‘progressive education' is tantamount to Communism, Coleman writes "In school controversies, the issue of Communist subversion in the schools is one-sided; as long as it occupies the attention of the community, it is to the advantage of school critics.  In contrast, the issue ‘progressive education vs. traditional education' offers not differential advantage to either side (unless, of course, progressive education can be identified by its opponents as ‘Communistic')…" Coleman equated the strong mayor-council form of government as "dictatorial control (whether benevolent or tyrannical)" in favor of his "democratic" style of government-transformational Marxism.

From the classroom (The Adolescent Society) to the school system itself (Public School-Private School) to politics (Equality of Opportunity), James Coleman, a student of transformational Marxist Kurt Lewin and Ralph Tyler, has played a major role in the restructuring of America, bringing it into the New World Order.

In his book The Adolescent Society, a book by the way which Benjamin Bloom uses to build his educational Taxonomies (Cognitive and Affective), Coleman writes:  "In the traditional society each child is at the mercy of his parents.  The ‘natural processes' by which they socialize him makes him a replica of them."  "Strengthening the family to draw the adolescent back into it faces serious problems, as well as some questions about its desirability."  "Equality of Opportunity becomes ever greater with the weakening of family power."  "Rather than bringing the father back to play with his son, this strategy would recognize that society has changed, and attempt to improve those institutions designed to educate the adolescent toward adulthood."  "In order to [improve those institutions], one must know how adolescent societies function, and beyond that, how their directions may be changed."  "The family has little to offer the child in the way of training for his place in the community."

In Public School-Private School, Coleman writes:  "Public schools represent an orientation that sees the school as an instrument of the society to free the child from constraints imposed by accident of birth."  Coleman "sees schools as society's instrument for releasing a child from the blinders imposed by accident of birth into this family or that family."  "Schools transcend the limitations of the parents' disparate [different, dissimilar, diverse] cultural backgrounds."  "They have been a major element in social mobility, freeing children from the poverty of their parents and the low status of their social origins.  They have been means of stripping away identities of ethnicity and social origin and implanting a common American identity."  "The young are seriously at risk because of the decline in strength of the family and those institutions that spring from it.  It is important that government policy by made in full recognition of this risk and of potential ways of reducing it."  [A National At Risk].  The reason children are at risk today, according to Coleman's reasoning, is because they are under the influence of traditional-minded parents and teachers.

Coleman's values are not traditional but rather transformational.  Equality of Opportunity, Social Class, and Social Mobility were the concerns of his mentor, Ralph Tyler.  These are the goals of transformational Outcome Based Education, the Outcome being a socialist society—transformational Marxism on a global scale.

Coleman worked hard to identify how a traditional-minded community seeks to protect its values.  He is instrumental in helping to identify forces of resistance and methods of neutralizing them.  So when his protégées (facilitators) come up to you, smiling and saying, "Trust us we are here to help you," beware, your freedom is at risk.

Without Law There Can Be No Grace

"It is Satan, the god of all dissension, who stirs up daily new sects, and last of all, which of all other I should not have foreseen or once suspected, he has raised up a sect such as teaches that man should not be terrified by the law but be gently exalted by the grace of Christ." Martin Luther (Source: Ray Comfort's sermon "The purpose of the Law in evangelism" in his tape series Hell's Best Kept Secret.) 

How to make the Gospel of non-effect—Preaching the Gospel without the Law and God's Wrath against those who have broken it.

            "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;" Rom 1:18

For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.  Be not ye therefore partakers with them.  (Ephesians 5:5-7)

The beast is the dialectic process incarnate, man's fallen nature personified and symbolized.  The heart and soul of OBE, TQM, & STW is the dialectic process preparing the world for the beast's appearance and God's wrath upon all who participate.

 If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.  (Revelation 14:9-12)

Human Relations Christianity—A False Gospel

 A Hindu form of thinking is now being used to define the Word of God.  It simply focuses upon the affections (feelings) of God for his creation, disregarding the cognition (facts) of His Wrath towards sin.


"Let's agree to disagree" is a phrase being used around the country these days.  It is the dialectic in short form.  I just tell those who use such verbiage, including deceived Christians, to use that phrase on God on the day of judgment and just see how far they get with it.

Another response, for the here and now, can be, "Oh, I see, you're one of those unprincipled people."  Anyone who uses the phrase "Let's agree to disagree" is an unprincipled person since they do not have a position they wish to stand on except ambiguity and all they want is for you to become like them, unprincipled.  If you agree to disagree with an unprincipled person you are simply justifying their ambiguity and are participating in the dialectic process yourself—kiss your faith good-bye.


When one hears the response "Oh, that's just your point of view" after having shared the Word of God concerning a social issue they need to respond with, "No, that is not my point of view.  It is God's point of view, and not only am I going to be held accountable to it, so are you."  The Word of God is God's point of view.  We simply, by faith, accept it as the only true point of view.

Since "It is impossible to please God without faith," and "Faith comes by hearing and hearing from the Word of God," and since none of us have crawled outside the creation and can say we see things from that point of view, God is the only one with a true point of view of who we are, where we came from, and where we are going.  Therefore we must trust His point of view, His Word, to be the truth.

Christians need to remind themselves, and the group and the facilitator (even if he happens to be their Sunday School teacher or their minister), that everyone on the face of the earth will be held accountable to God's "it is written" and not how we feel or others feel about his word or what we think or others think about it.  While facilitators may facilitate the Word of God with I feel and I think, men of faith preach and teach it with "It is written."

To make God's point of view equal to man's point of view makes one an enemy of the Cross.  Many Christians have been seduced, deceived, and manipulated by this satanic process simply because they desire to better relate with the world's point of view.  This is foolishness.   How can souls, your included, be saved from eternal damnation if God's Word is made of non-effect in the ears of man?  "Having eyes which are human eyes, and ears which are human ears" is what Karl Marx believed in and promoted.  If the "church" builds upon this paradigm then it has "eyes which can not see, and ears which can not hear," and is not of God, it is apostate. It is God's point of view which really matters, not ours.
