Sense of Guilt.

Dean Gotcher

Those who praxis the dialectic process, i.e., dialectic (dialogue) 'reasoning,' i.e., "self" 'justification,' i.e., the children of disobedience, who are lead by "group psychotherapists," facilitators of 'change,' Transformational Marxists (all three being the same) base 'reasoning' upon their "feelings" of the 'moment,' which are stimulated by the world—what Karl Marx called "sensuous needs," "sense perception," and "sense experience," i.e., "only that which is of nature," i.e., of the world only (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3), which the Word of God calls "the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," i.e., "all that is in [and of] the world."

1 John 2:16 "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."

What dialectic 'reasoning' leaves out, i.e., rejects (what Abraham Maslow called "theory X") is your God given ability to receive commands, rules, facts, and truth from authority and your God given ability to understand the consequences for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., accountability—the sense of guilty, i.e., the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning. By 'justifying' your "self," i.e., 'justifying' your "feelings" of the 'moment,' i.e., your desire for ("lusting" after) the carnal pleasures of the 'moment,' which the world stimulates, and your dissatisfaction, resentment, hatred toward authority, which gets in the way over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will, thereby negating commands, rules, facts, and truth (to be obeyed as given, by faith), the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning is negated, i.e., is replaced with the so called "super-ego," negating your God given ability to have a sense of guilty for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning. This is why socialists, i.e., 'liberals' do wrong, disobey, sin with no sense of guilt, claiming they are being "victimized," i.e., "repressed," "alienated," etc., when they are told to do what they do not want to do. Refusing to humble, deny, die to their self in order to do the father's/Father's will, "justifying," i.e., "esteeming" their "self, i.e., affirming their love of pleasure and hate of restraint, i.e., the "deceitfulness" and "wickedness" of their heart instead, they can not see (are blinded to) the Father's love for them.

If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15

"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure (dopamine emancipation) is the standard for "good" instead of humbling, denying, dying to "self," in order to do the father's/Father's will], and desperately wicked [hating whoever prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks you from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' you desire]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9

"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

"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

"The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flattereth himself 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

Kurt Lewin explained how the sense of guilt, i.e., the guilty conscience (what he called a "negative valence") is engendered and how it can be negated:

"The negative valence of a forbidden object which in itself attracts the child thus usually derives from an induced field of force of an adult." "If this field of force loses its psychological existence for the child (e.g., if the adult goes away or loses his authority) the negative valence also disappears." (Kurt Lewin; A Dynamic Theory of Personality)

By replacing the preaching of commands and rules to be obeyed, as given, the teaching of facts and truth to be accepted as is, by faith, and the discussing of any questions or misunderstandings regarding what is being preached and taught (at the one in authority's discretion) with the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus, the guilty conscience, i.e., the sense of guilt for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning is negated.

The Holy Spirit, along with the preaching of the Word of God (which the Holy Spirit confirms) restores the sense of guilty (contrition, repentance, forgiveness, salvation) in the person. Anytime dialogue (your opinion) appears, the sense of guilt (contrition) is negated. There is no sense of guilt, i.e., accountability for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in dialogue, since that which is negative (judgment, condemnation, damnation for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., the father's/Father's authority) must be set aside, suspended, as upon a cross, if dialogue is to be initiated and sustained.

"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works." Matthew 16:24-27

John 15:26, 27 "But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning."

John 16:7-11 "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged."
