Despotism Predominates In The Heart Of The Child.
"Despotism" ...."that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart." (George Washington, Farewell Address)
"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will, i.e., having to set aside pleasure, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to "self" in order to do God the Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according the Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth], and desperately wicked [hating God the Father and His authority which "gets in the way," i.e. which prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks you from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'—which the world stimulates]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 Those of dialectic 'reasoning,' as children of disobedience ('justifying' their "self") can not see their hatred toward God the Father as being evil because their love of "self," i.e., their love of pleasure—which the world stimulates—is "in the way," blinding them to the truth of the deceitfulness and wickedness of their heart.
By 'shifting' education (communication) away from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., away from the preaching of commands and rules to be obeyed, as given, the teaching of facts and truth to be accepted as is, by faith, the discussing of any questions those under authority might have (at the one in authority's discretion: providing they have time, those under authority can understand, and they are not questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking authority), the rewarding or blessing of those children who do (or are doing) what is right, the correcting or chastening of those children who do (or are doing) what is wrong, and the casting out or expelling of any child who are questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking authority, thereby engendering a guilty conscience in the child(ren) for doing wrong, disobeying, or sinning, to the child's carnal nature, i.e., to the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus, i.e., to the heart of the child, i.e., to the child's "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates, 'justifying' his hatred toward restraint (hate of the retainer), the child's carnal nature predominates over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority. It is in dialogue that the child 'creates' a "new" world order of his own "liking," i.e., a world 'liberated' from the father's/Father's authority, where he, 'justifying' his "self," i.e., affirming his carnal nature before other children can do wrong, disobey, sin without having a guilty conscience, i.e., where he, justifying' his "self," i.e., affirming his carnal nature before other children, can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity.
"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 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
There is no father's/Father's authority, and therefore no guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in dialogue—only the carnal nature ("lust") of the child, ruling without restraint. It is in the heart of the child (in adult bodies) that despotism resides. It is why psychologists, "group psychotherapists," facilitators of change,' Transformational Marxists 'shift' communication away from discussion to the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus instead, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin ("lust") with impunity.
"The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flattereth himself [his "self"] in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful. The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good. He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil." (Psalms 36:1-4)
"And for this cause [because men, as "children of disobedience," 'justify' their "self," i.e., 'justify' their love of the carnal pleasures of the 'moment,' i.e., "lusts," which the world stimulates over and therefore against the Father's authority] God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie [that pleasure ("lust") is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will]: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth [in the Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ], but had pleasure in unrighteousness [in their "self" and the pleasures ("lusts") of the 'moment,' which the world stimulates]." 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12
