"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him." 2 Corinthians 11:3, 4
The gospel message is not only "positive," i.e., God's love for you, sending his Son to die for you, i.e., for your sins that you might spend eternity with him in Heaven, it is also "negative," i.e., God's judgment upon you for your sins, i.e., being cast into the lake of fire that is never quenched, i.e., damnation because you never repented of your sins, i.e., of your "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and or people are stimulating. Without denying your "self," i.e., your "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the situation and/or people are stimulating, accepting the rejection of men (because you refused to 'justify' them, i.e., affirm their "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating, warning them of God's judgment upon them for their sins), and following the Son, Jesus Christ, doing His Father's you have rejected the gospel message, despite calling your "self" a "Christian" (if you do). Without the Father, i.e., judgment and damnation, i.e., the "negative," there is no Son, i.e., salvation, i.e., eternal life, i.e., "positive."
"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
When you are asked to be "positive" and not "negative" when it comes to behavior ("behavior 'science'"), the Father's authority is negated, resulting in you following "another Jesus," dying in your sins. It is a subtle 'change' from discussion (preaching, teaching, and discussing what is right and what is wrong behavior, with coming to know and doing right requiring you to suspend, as upon a cross your "self," i.e., your "self interests," i.e., your "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and or people are stimulating in order to hear and receive the truth, i.e., humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining your "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., in order to do the Father's will) to dialogue (with "right," i.e., being "positive" requiring you to suspend, as upon a cross any command, rule, fact, or truth that gets in the way of your and the other persons carnal desires, i.e., "lusts" of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating, and "wrong," i.e., "negative" being anyone who gets in the way, i.e., who prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks you and others from "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating, thereby 'justifying' your and their"self," so you and they can "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating without having a guilty conscience—which the Father's authority engenders for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating—with each others affirmation, 'justifying your and their hatred toward the Father and his authority, i.e., that which is "negative" for getting in the way. It is a subtle 'change' which has eternal consequences. Without the "negative," i.e., the Father's authority, i.e., God's judgment upon you for your sins, all you have is the "positive"—from your perspective—i.e., "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," that which is only "of the world."
"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
Being "beguiled" starts with "Thou shalt not surely die," i.e., being "positive," i.e., dialogue, i.e., your opinion, i.e., "I feel" and "I think" when it comes to right and wrong behavior. The simplicity of Christ is denying your "self," enduring the rejection of men, and following him, doing the Father's will, i.e., being told, i.e., by faith doing the Father's will.
"For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." Matthew 12:50
"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." Matthew 7:21
"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." Matthew 23:9
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6
"Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven." Matthew 10:32, 33
"And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself [his "lusts"], and take up his cross daily [endure the rejection of other's for not affirming their "lusts"], and follow me [the Lord, doing the Father's will]." Luke 9:23
"Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is." Jeremiah 17:7
"By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil." Proverbs 16:5
"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
"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
