Mature vs. Immature.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8, 9
"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." I Corinthians 13:11
Instead of children becoming mature, i.e., suspending their "feelings," i.e., humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining their "self" in order (as in "old" world order) to hear the truth and do right and not wrong (according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth), having a guilty conscience when they do wrong, disobey, sin, we now have children, i.e., the immature in adult bodies, requiring everyone to suspend the truth, as upon a cross, i.e., requiring everyone to esteem their "self" in order (as in "new" world order) for their "feelings" not to be hurt (so they can "feel" "good" about their "self," i.e., like god), so they can to do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity, i.e., so they can do wrong, disobey, sin without having a guilty conscience.
"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
"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') In other words: "lust," i.e., the child's carnal nature in us, i.e., immaturity, according to Karl Marx, "reconciles us to" the world which stimulates it, 'redeeming' us from the Father and His authority, i.e., from maturity.
"Sense experience must be the basis of all science." "Science is only genuine science when it proceeds from sense experience, in the two forms of sense perception and sensuous need, that is, only when it proceeds from Nature." (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3) Karl Marx simply made "lust" academics, redefining "the lust of the flesh" as "sensuous needs," "the lust of the eyes" as "sense perception" and "the pride of life" as "sense experience," making the child's carnal nature ("human nature") the 'drive' of life and it's 'liberation' from the father's/Father's the 'purpose.' "Behavioral scientists" can only find their identity in the carnal nature of the child, i.e., in "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life." Through their use of dialogue (starting with the "sensuous needs," "sense perception," and "sense experience" of the child, i.e., the immature) they 'justify' their "self," i.e., 'justify' their "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment which the world stimulates.
"The child, contrary to appearance, is the absolute, the rationality of the relationship; he is what is enduring and everlasting, the totality which produces itself once again as such [once he is 'liberated' from the father'/Father's authority to become as he was before the father's/Father's first command, rule, fact, or truth came into his life (separating him from his "self" and the world), of (and now for) "self" and the world only]." (Georg Hegel, System of Ethical Life)
While the mature can separate their love of the person, while hating their doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, judging them, i.e., holding them accountable for their behavior (while still loving them, wanting them to do right, obey, not sin), the immature, unable to separate their love of pleasure and hate of restraint, judges the person, i.e., holds them accountable based upon their "feelings," i.e., their carnal desires of the 'moment'—hating not only the person but also hating the way they think (reason, i.e., reasoning from establish commands, rules, facts, and truth instead of 'reasoning' from the child's "feelings," i.e., the child's "sensuous needs," i.e., the child's carnal desires of the 'moment'), accusing them of being "irrational," i.e., of not "understanding," i.e., of "getting in their way"; for not affirming them and the world they have created for their "self" (out of their own imagination—which the world has stimulated), i.e., for not 'justifying' their carnal nature, i.e., their love of pleasure and hate of restraint, i.e., for not esteeming them, i.e., for not making them "feel" good, i.e., like god, but making them "feel" "bad," i.e., not like god instead. The immature, dialoguing with their "self" and with others, 'justify' their "self," i.e., 'justify' their carnal nature, i.e., 'justify' their love of pleasure and hate of restraint, i.e., 'justify' their "lusts." They do not see their "self" as being above the law, but see their "self" as being the law instead.
"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 heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the father's/Father's will, i.e., having to set aside pleasure, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline "self" in order (as in "old" world order) to do the father's/Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth], and desperately wicked [hating the father's/Father's authority which "gets in the way," i.e. which prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks it from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'—which the world stimulates]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 You can not see your hate of restraint, i.e., hatred toward the father's/Father's authority as being evil since your love of pleasure, i.e., love of "self," i.e., "lust" stands in the way.
It is the father's/Father's authority that engenders the guilty conscience in us when we do wrong, disobey, sin. It is the child's carnal nature to "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates, wanting everyone to serve and protect them in their "self interest," 'justifying' their "self," hating restraint, i.e., hating the father's/Father's authority (which engenders the guilty conscience in them when they do wrong, disobey, sin) for getting in the way. It is the role (duty) of psychologists, i.e., "behavioral scientists," i.e., group psychotherapists, i.e., facilitators of 'change', i.e., Transformational Marxists (all using the same method or formula) to seduce, deceive, and manipulate everyone who comes before them into dialoguing their opinions (their "feelings") to a consensus (affirmation)—there is no father's/Father's authority, nor guilty conscience in dialogue—turning them into chickens, rats, and dogs, i.e., into "human resource," negating the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience which it engenders (called "the negation of negation"—since the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the guilty conscience is negative to the child's carnal nature) in their group grade," "safe zone/space/place," "Don't be negative, be positive," soviet style, brainwashing (washing the father's/Father's authority from the child's thoughts and actions; "theory and practice"), "Bloom's Taxonomy," affective domain, classroom/meetings. Home schooling material, co-ops, conferences are joining in the same praxis, fulfilling Immanuel Kant's, 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 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, negating having to repent before the father/Father for your doing wrong, disobedience, sins—which is the real agenda.
"Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment. Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity." "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil." Ecclesiastes 11:9, 10; 12:13, 14
"Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD." "Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is." Jeremiah 17:5, 7
If you do not take care of (chasten) the Karl Marx in your child while he is still young, instructing him in humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining his "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to the father's/Father's will, he, remaining immature, will take care of you when he "grows up," oppressing and killing you and anyone else who gets in his way (including the unborn and the elderly, i.e., "the innocent and the righteous").
"Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked." Exodus 23:7
It is the children (of disobedience), i.e., the immature who now rule the world, oppressing the people in the name of "the people," i.e., for the sake of their "self." If you "build relationship" with others based upon common "self interest" you can get rid of them (you do not need them) when you are in power since your "self interest" represents them (in your "self"). This is the wickedness of the unconverted heart of the child, i.e., the immature, instead of humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining his "self" in order to do right and not wrong, holding his "self" accountable to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, he esteems his "self," 'justifying' his "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, 'justifying' his hating and destroying anyone who gets in his way. In this life the immature may have their way, hating restraint and the restrainer, but in the end God will have His, judging them, i.e., holding them accountable for their thoughts and actions.
"And for this cause [because men 'justify' themselves, i.e., their love of "self" and the world, i.e., their love of pleasure (dopamine emancipation) more than God] 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 world]." 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12
"[E]very one of us shall give account of himself to God." Romans 14:12
"Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil." Proverbs 16:5-6
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverb. 3: 5-6
