"And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:" 2 Peter 2:3
Plastic words! Malleable words! Beguiling words! That is what "feigned words" means in the Greek—today referred to as "double speak," in the past "speaking with a forked tongue." "Tolerance of "ambiguity" means the same thing. "Fusion words" is what Abraham Maslow called it, using broadly definable words in order to seduce and then deceive you into participating in your own demise, for the benefit of the manipulator of words, i.e., their use of semantics (lying) in order to control the outcome, i.e., you. As a "Christian" lawyer stated (in a law class I attended): "All lawyers are trained in semantics. Which makes us all liars. The more skilled you are in semantics. The more successful you will be." Ruth Benedict wrote about how a person could be 'changed' by incrementally 'changing' the words being used in a "discussion." Through the switching of eight words from belief to an opinion the "victim" could be 'changed' without ever noticing the 'change,' i.e., what was happening to him.
Discussion and dialogue are not the same. You preach, teach, and discuss facts and truth, i.e., doing right and not wrong if belief is the issue. You dialogue "feelings" if opinions are the issue. Globalists (Transformational Marxists, Socialists, Communists), i.e., "group psychotherapists" know this, injecting dialogue ("feelings") into all discussions in order to bring you over to their "side," i.e., to their way of "thinking" and acting ("feeling"). The conscience (guilty conscience when doing wrong, disobeying, sinning) is based upon commands, rules, facts, and truth which are established for all times and places. The "super-ego" is based upon "feelings" which are readily adaptable to 'change' in the "light" of the current situation. This is why legislators are so quickly 'changed,' becoming compromised or 'liberals' shortly after they take office (the result of having participated in facilitated, dialoguing opinions to a consensus, i.e., "bipartisan" meetings), making it difficult if not impossible for you to talk facts or truth, right or wrong with them, resulting in you loosing local control (sovereignty, i.e., individualism, nationalism, under God, i.e., private property, private business, private convictions) to environmental, humanistic, globalist concerns (other peoples "feelings"—who are not a part of, i.e., who transcend your family, city, county, state, and nation—and faith) in the process.
The key to seducing, deceiving, manipulating legislators is to gain access to what they are dialoguing with their "self" about in private. Instead of encouraging them to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline their "self," i.e., discuss commands, rules, facts, and truth with their "self" in order to do things right and not wrong the facilitator of 'change' seeks to 'discover' what they are dialoging with their "self" about instead, focusing upon their "feelings," i.e., their desire for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates and their dissatisfaction, resentment, hatred toward whoever is preventing, i.e., inhibiting or blocking them from having or gaining access to it (where they are willing to "spin words," i.e., use "feigned words" in order to get their way). The same applies to you, with your legislator now attempting to do the same to you. "The individual may have 'secret' thoughts which he will under no circumstances reveal to anyone else if he can help it. To gain access is particularly important, for precisely here may lie the individual's potential for democratic ["positive," i.e., socialist, globalist, i.e., adaptability to 'change'] or antidemocratic ["negative," i.e., individualistic, nationalistic, i.e., inadaptability to 'change'] thought and action in crucial situations." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality) Their agenda is to make you 'readily' adaptable to 'change'—as they are. "[We] must develop persons who see non-influencability of private convictions [those holding onto their belief despite their natural (carnal) desire to do wrong, disobey, sin, including their natural (carnal) desire to be affirmed by others, privately judging their (and others) thoughts and actions according to commands, rules, facts, and truth they have learned and accepted as is, by faith instead, holding others accountable to the same standards] in joint deliberations [in the consensus process] as a vice [as being mentally ill, i.e., negative, hateful, hurtful to their "self" and others] rather than a virtue [as being mentally healthy, i.e., positive, accepting, approving of others of differing opinions, affirming their carnal nature, making "human nature," i.e., man's "lusting" after pleasure the standard for "good" and restraint against pleasure, in order to obey commands and rules as being "evil"]." (Kenneth D. Benne, Human Relations in Curriculum Change)
Discussion deals with details, i.e., specifics (facts and truth), dialogue with generalizations ("feelings"). The father's/Father's way of thinking, i.e., preaching commands and rules to be obeyed as give, teaching facts and truth to be accepted as is, by faith and applied, discussing (at his/His discretion) with his children any questions they might have in order to clear up any misunderstandings in order for them to do what is right and not wrong or discussing any differences he has with others in order to change their (or if he is wrong his) mind (the issue being doing things right and not wrong according to facts, truth, and belief) is antithetical to the children's way of thinking, 'driven' by his carnal nature to approach pleasure and avoid pain, "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment's which the world stimulates, hating whoever is restraining him—with the child's "Why?" (in response to the father's/Father's command or rule—in order to move him/Him from discussion into dialogue, so the child can have his way according to his "feelings," i.e., his carnal desires of the 'moment,' the issue being everyone's "feelings" of the 'moment' so the child can "feel good" "doing his thing") resulting in the father's/Father's "Because I said so," i.e., "It is written" ending the child's attempt to draw the father/Father into dialogue, i.e., cutting off the entrapment of dialogue in order to keep his/His authority in tact in the mind of the child. Rule of law, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, i.e., true representative form of government is explained in the Lord Jesus Christ's statements, i.e., his way of thinking: "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." Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." "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 12:47; John 5:19, 30 By someone drawing your representative into dialogue, on issues that should only be discussed, you loose your representative form of government to Globalism aka Socialism aka Common-ism aka Marxism. It is just that easy.
Only by the father/Father (and those having faith in, following after, and obeying him/Him) staying in discussion, regarding his/His commands, rules, facts, and truth can he/He retain his/His position of authority in the children's thoughts (and actions). When the father/Father replaces discussion (facts and truth) with dialogue ("feelings") he abdicates his/His authority to the child's "feelings" (desires, i.e., "lusts," i.e., "self interest") of the 'moment,' 'liberating' the child from his/His restraints (commands and rules). That is why those who seek to "make merchandise of you" try to draw you (your spouse, your children, your legislators, your minister, etc.,) into dialogue , i.e., try to 'liberate' you (and everyone else and therefore themselves) from the father's/Father's authority by using "feigned words," in order to deceive you (and everyone else) into trusting in them, so they can have their own way (without "your," i.e., the father's/Father's restraints). It is your "coveting," i.e., your "self interest," i.e., your "lusting" after the things of this world—as a child desires the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, "lusting" after what others have that he wants—that makes you seducible by those who seek to deceive you, in order to manipulate you (as "natural resource" aka "human resource") in order to "make merchandise of you," i.e., in order to buy and sell you, i.e., your soul for their own pleasure and gain. Thus the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus (the soviet system aka brainwashing) has become the means by which you (your children, your spouse, your relatives, your neighbors, your friends, your educators, your legislators, your minister, etc.,) are being seduced, deceived, and manipulated, i.e., so quickly 'changed.' It is what globalism, i.e., the "new" world order is all about, 'changing' the way you think and act (communicate with others) in order for there to be "worldly peace and socialist harmony," with "group psychotherapists," i.e., facilitators of 'change' (in the old days called the vanguard party) leading the way. This leads back to the garden in Eden, where the first facilitator of 'change,' i.e., the master "psychotherapist" used dialogue , i.e., "feigned words" in order to seduce, deceive, and manipulate two "children" into doing their (his) will instead of the Father's.
"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Matthew 6:24
"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." James 4:4
"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
"And for this cause [because men, as "children of disobedience," 'justify' themselves, i.e., their love of "self" and the world, i.e., their love of the pleasures of the 'moment' over and therefore against the Father's authority] God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie [that pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will, i.e., that truth lies within them]: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth [in the Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ], but had pleasure in unrighteousness [in their "self" and the pleasures of the 'moment,' which the world stimulates]." 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12
