Ministers of Dialectic 'Reasoning.'
Ministers of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e., facilitators of 'change' are different than ministers of the Word of God, who preach and teach the Word of God as is, unmingled with "human 'reasoning,'" accepting it by faith. Rather than basing their message upon the authority of God, ministers of dialectic 'reasoning' base their message upon the "feelings" of "the people," i.e., the opinions of men. This makes them, though highly prized by their followers, enemies of God. By making psychology, i.e., "group psychotherapy," i.e., the dialoguing of men's opinions to a consensus, i.e., man's "feelings" of the 'moment' the bases of their 'reasoning' they have rejected the authority of God, i.e., the Father, his Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, placing themselves (mankind, i.e., "human nature") in his place.
It is now how far down the dialectic pathway you have traveled. It is that you are on it in the first place. To take one step on the dialectic pathway of "self" 'justification' is to step in it.
There is no such thing as a "Christian psychiatrist," who, basing 'reality' upon the "feelings" of men, seduce, deceive, and manipulate all who, listening to them, "esteem" themselves (instead of denying themselves under the mighty hand of God), lust after the affirmation of men (instead of picking up their cross, enduring the 'rejection' of men, preaching and teaching the Word of God, untainted with "human 'reasoning,'" i.e., refusing to compromise it for the approval of men), and follow them in their abominable way, which seems to them to be "right" in the 'moment.'
"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25
"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
"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 16:5
"And for this cause [because men 'justify' themselves, i.e., their love of "self" and the world, i.e., their love of pleasure 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 bracketed added.
"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers [facilitators of 'change'] also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works ['justifying' their "self," dying in their sins]." 2 Corinthians 11:14, 15 bracketed added.
"Take heed therefore that the light [dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e., "self" 'justification,' i.e., enlightenment, i.e., illumination] which is in thee be not darkness." Luke 11:35 bracketed added.
"Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience." Ephesians 2:2, 3; 5:6
"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others." Ephesians 2:2, 3
"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." 2 Corinthians 6:14-18
"For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ." Galatians 1:10-12
