Justify And Complain.
(Personal note.)

Dean Gotcher

Adam and the woman in the garden in Eden were the first 'liberal's'—who when caught doing wrong, never admit they are wrong but, justifying their "self," i.e., their "lust of the flesh," "lust of the eyes," and "pride of life," complain about someone else (or the situation, i.e., the "unhealthy environment" God created), "throwing them (Him) under the bus" (doing the "blame game"). Those who 'justify' their "self" and complain about others getting in the way of their being "good" are simply claiming that what they did (wrong) was the result of the environment, i.e., a "good" environment creates "good" people and a "bad" environment creates "bad" people (meaning "goodness," i.e., Godliness resides in people, just needing a "good" environment in which to manifest itself), making themselves no different than animals—stimulus-response—'liberating' their "self" from being personally accountable for their actions before God, who told them right from wrong.

"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 he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Luke 16:15

The soul knows by being told. God told Adam right from wrong. He knew better. The flesh "knows" by "sense experience." Adam (following after the woman) chose to "know" right from wrong according to his carnal nature, i.e., his "lusts," resulting in him (along with the woman) 'justifying' his "self" (according to his carnal nature, i.e., "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life"), when caught doing wrong blaming her ("throwing her under the bus"), blaming God in the process (for giving him a "bad" woman, i.e., for 'creating' an "unhealthy environment" in which to live ina "healthy environment" being therefore one in which he could be his "self," i.e., enjoy the "lusts," i.e., the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates without being wrong, i.e., without being judged for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., "lusting").

"Prevent(ing) someone who KNOWS from filling the empty space." (Wilfred Bion, A Memoir of the Future) ... so you can "feel" 'good" about your "self" and be less offensive to others.

When it comes to knowing right from wrong, when you listen to your "self," i.e., the voice of "lust" you will always 'justify' your "self," i.e., your "lusts," blaming others (or the situation) when you are caught doing wrong. When you listen to the voice of God, being told, having humbled, denied, died to, controlled, disciplined your "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to his will (instead of yours) you will not fulfill (carry out) your "lusts." You will admit you are wrong (for 'listening' to your "self") and repent when you do—you will not 'justify' your "self" and complain about (blame) others (and/or the environment), i.e., not do the "blame game," i.e., not come up with excuses ("fables," i.e., opinions) for why you behaved the way you did. You will not say, when you are wrong: "It is not my fault. It is (or was) my parent's, spouse's, children's, teacher's,,, God's fault for ___fill in the blame___."

"Experience is, for me, the highest authority." "Neither the Bible nor the prophets, neither the revelations of God can take precedence over my own direct experience." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)

"Behavioral 'science," which is founded upon "sense experience," i.e., "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," i.e., only that which is "of the world," i.e., "self 'justifying' and complaining negates the voice of the father/Father in knowing right from wrong, i.e., from being told, using dialogue, i.e., the language of "self" 'justification' and complaint instead. There is no father's/Father's authority, i.e., being told right from wrong in dialogue, in an opinion, or in the consensus process. There is only the child's carnal nature, i.e., "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," i.e., "self" 'justification'—and complaining about being told. "Make me 'like' 'feel' 'like' 'good' (like God—only God is good) and I will 'like' 'listen' to (like) you. Make me 'like' 'feel' 'like' 'bad' (not 'like' 'feel' 'like' 'good,' i.e., 'like' not like God) and I will 'like' not 'like' 'listen' to (not like) you." is the mantra being voiced today from our "self" 'justifying,' complaining, "lust of the flesh," "lust of the eyes," and "pride of life," "Don't tell me what I can not say or do" culture.

"Prior to therapy the person is prone to ask himself, 'What would my parents want me to do?' During the process of therapy the individual comes to ask himself, 'What does it mean to me?'"

All of therapy is based upon "self" 'justification' and complaining about the father's/Father's authority.

"There are many stories of the conflict and tension that these new practices are producing between parents and children." (David Krathwohl, Benjamin S. Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 2: Affective Domain)

All education today is based upon therapy, i.e., "self" 'justification' and complaining about the father's/Father's authority. All "educators" are certified and schools accredited today based upon their use of what are called "Blooms' Taxonomies" ("a psychological classification system" used "to develop attitudes and values ... which are not shaped by the parents." "Ordering" "different kinds of affective behavior," i.e., "the range of emotion(s)" "organized into value systems and philosophies of life.") in the classroom, creating a culture of "self" 'justification,' complaining about their parent's, i.e., the father's/Father's authority

"The affective domain is, in retrospect, a virtual 'Pandora's Box' [a "box" full of evils, which once opened, can not be closed].' It is in this 'box' that the most influential controls are to be found." "In fact, a large part of what we call "good teaching" is the teacher's ability to attain affective objectives through challenging the student's fixed beliefs and getting them to discuss issues." (Book 2: Affective Domain)

The "educator" does not have to tell the students to question, challenge, defy, disregard, attack their parent's authority when they get home from school, if they were not doing that already (telling them would be "old school," maintaining the "old" world order of being told even if it was done for the 'purpose' of 'change,' i.e., for the 'purpose' of creating a "new" world order), all they have to do is use a curriculum in the classroom that "encourages," i.e., pressures (out of the students natural desire for approval from and fear of rejection by "the group") the students to participate in the process of 'change,' i.e., into dialoguing their opinions to a consensus, 'justifying' their carnal nature over and therefore against their parents authority. Being told to be "positive" (supportive of the other students carnal nature) and not "negative" (judging them by their parents standards) pressures students to 'justify' their and the other students love of pleasure and hate of restrain, doing so in order to be approved, i.e., affirmed by "the group," resulting in "the group" labeling those students who, holding onto their parents standards, i.e., refusing to participate in the process of 'change' or fighting against it as being "negative," divisive, hateful, intolerant, maladjusted, unadaptable to 'change,' resisters of 'change,' not "team players," lower order thinkers, in denial, phobic, prejudiced, judgmental, racist, fascist, dictators, anti-social, etc., i.e., "hurting" peoples "feelings" resulting in "the group" rejecting them—the student's natural desire for approval and fear of rejection forces him to participate. "Mental illness," following along this same line of 'reasoning" requires "social health" as an essential part of its solution. In essence without "social health," i.e., socialism, i.e., the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process, i.e., "self" 'justification' before others, complaining about parental, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, "mental health" is unattainable. Without the "self" 'justification' before others and the complaining about parental, i.e., the father's/Father's authority "self-actualization," i.e., the "new" world order where "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life rules without the father's/Father's authority, i.e., "lawfulness without law" can not become a reality. (Immanuel Kant, Critique of Judgment)

"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

Facilitators of 'change,' i.e., psychologists, i.e., behavioral "scientists," i.e., "group psychotherapists," i.e., Marxists (Transformational Marxists)—all being the same in method or formula—are using the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus (affirmation) process, i.e., dialectic 'reasoning' ('reasoning' from/through the students "feelings" of the 'moment,' i.e., from/through their "lust" for pleasure and their hate of restraint, in the "light" of their desire for group approval, i.e., affirmation and fear of group rejection) in the "group grade," "safe zone/space/place," "Don't be negative, be positive," soviet style, brainwashing (washing the father's/Father's authority from the children's thoughts and actions, i.e., "theory and practice," negating their having a guilty conscience, which the father's/father's authority engenders, for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the process—called "the negation of negation" since the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience, being negative to the child's carnal nature, is negated in dialogue—in dialogue, opinion, and the consensus process there is no father's/Father's authority), inductive 'reasoning' ('reasoning' from/through the students "feelings," i.e., their natural inclination to "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'—dopamine emancipation—which the world stimulates, i.e., their "self interest," i.e., their "sense experience," selecting "appropriate information"—excluding, ignoring, or resisting, i.e., rejecting any "inappropriate" information, i.e., established command, rule, fact, or truth that gets in the way of their desired outcome, i.e., pleasure—in determining right from wrong behavior), "Bloom's Taxonomy," "affective domain," French Revolution (Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité) classroom "environment" in order (as in "new" world order) to 'liberate' children from parental authority, i.e., from the father's/Father's authority system (the Patriarchal Paradigm)—seducing, deceiving, and manipulating them as chickens, rats, and dogs, i.e., treating them as natural resource ("human resource") in order to convert them into 'liberals,' socialists, globalists, so they, 'justifying' their "self" before one another, can do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., "lust" with impunity.

"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken." Jeremiah 6:16, 17

Home schooling material, co-ops, conferences, etc., are joining in the same praxis, fulfilling Immanuel Kant's as well as Georg Hegel's, Karl Marx's, and Sigmund Freud's agenda of using the pattern or method of Genesis 3:1-6, i.e., "self" 'justification,' i.e., dialectic (dialogue) 'reasoning," i.e., 'reasoning' from/through your "feelings," i.e., your carnal desires of the 'moment' which are being stimulated by the world (including your desire for approval from others, with them affirming your carnal nature) in order to negate Hebrews 12:5-11, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline your "self" in order to do the father's/Father's will, negating Romans 7:14-25, i.e., your having a guilty conscience when you do wrong, disobey, sin, thereby negating your having to repent before the father/Father for your doing wrong, disobedience, sins—which is the real agenda.

"And for this cause [because men, as "children of disobedience," 'justify' their "self," i.e., 'justify' their love of "self" and the world, i.e., their love of the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) 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 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 of the 'moment,' which the world stimulates]." 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12
