"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
"... it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23
The "problem" for the child is having to do what he has been told, i.e., doing what he does not want to do or hates doing, missing out on what he wants to do, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will instead of his, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline, capitulate his self in order (as in "old" world order) to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, having a guilty conscience when he is doing or is thinking about doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating with his "friends" instead of doing what he has been told. The problem for the Father is the child lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating, i.e., missing out on eternal life, being cast into the lake of fire that is never quenched instead. Lust, i.e., "self interest" negates the father's/Father's authority in the mind of the child until he is caught or the guilt conscience shows up. The soul knows from being told. The flesh by "sense experience." When man lets "sense experience," i.e., the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life" direct his steps, he sacrifices his soul upon the alter of "self preservation."
"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself [flee his lusts], and take up his cross [endure the rejection of others for not affirming, i.e., 'justifying' their lusts], and follow me [doing the Father's will]. 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
"[E]very one of us shall give account of himself to God." Romans 14:12
The problem is right under your nose. It is so close to you, you can not see it. It is the heart of the carnal child within you, speaking out against, i.e., resenting and resisting the father's/Father's authority.
"for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh." "But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment." Matthew 12:34, 36
"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure (lust) is the standard for "good" instead of doing the father's/Father's will], and desperately wicked [hating whoever prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks it from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' it desires (lusts after)]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 It can not see its hate of the Father as being evil, i.e., "wicked," i.e., "desperately wicked" because it's lust for pleasure is standing in the way, 'justifying' it.
"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
"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." Ecclesiastes 11:9
All anyone has to do is "encourage," i.e., pressure your child (along with other children) to "open up" and dialogue his or her opinion, i.e., his or her "feelings" and "thoughts" of the 'moment,' to a consensus, i.e., to a "feeling" of "oneness" with other children, affirming each other's carnal desires and dissatisfactions of the 'moment,' i.e., to "help" your child (along with other children) share his or her heart's desires, in defiance to your authority, and they will have succeeded in turning your child against you and your authority, with your child no longer having a guilty conscience for his or her carnal thoughts and actions, i.e., for questioning, challenging, disregarding, defying, attacking you and your authority. It is just that easy. It is what has been taking place in "education" from the 50's on (Mao's long march across America) with its use of "Bloom's Taxonomies." "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) It is the political system of socialism-globalism ("group psychotherapy") which has been used in the "facilitated" classroom (over the past six decades) in order to 'liberate' children from parental authority, i.e., Godly restraint—which is equated to Nationalism, i.e., individualism, under God, i.e., "Fascism."
"Authoritarian submission was conceived of as a very general attitude that would be evoked in relation to a variety of authority figures—parents, older people, leaders, supernatural power, and so forth." "God is conceived more directly after a parental image and thus as a source of support and as a guiding and sometimes punishing authority." "Submission to authority, desire for a strong leader, subservience of the individual to the state [parental authority, local control, Nationalism], and so forth, have so frequently and, as it seems to us, correctly, been set forth as important aspects of the Nazi creed that a search for correlates of prejudice had naturally to take these attitudes into account." "The power-relationship between the parents, the domination of the subject's family by the father or by the mother, and their relative dominance in specific areas of life also seemed of importance for our problem." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality) Adorno's Marxist ideology, as expressed above, is the "Weltanschauung" (world view) of "Bloom's Taxonomy," which is being used not only in the public but in the private (including "Christian") classroom today, across America (from pre-school to the Universities and Vo-Tech's, including "Christian")—they are increasingly being used in home-school material and in home schooling "co-ops" as well. All teachers are certified and schools accredited (including "Christian") based upon their use of "Bloom's Taxonomies," i.e., "group psychotherapy" in the classroom. Obama "Common Core" was built upon them, as is all curriculum today.
Anytime your child is in a so called "discussion" group dealing with personal-social issues ("discussing personal-social issues" is not a discussion but dialogue), i.e., being asked ("bullied") to "be positive, and not negative," he or she is being pressured, for the sake of "group approval," into leaving his or her parental/Godly restraints out, i.e., to suspend the truth, as on a cross, in order to "get along," so that the outcome of the meeting will be Godless, i.e., not "hurtful" to the deviant's carnal feelings, i.e., not offensive to the atheist and or the 'liberal,' with your child's affirmation making Godlessness, deviancy, atheism, 'liberalism' the "norm," making anyone (from then and thereafter) who rejects and condemns deviancy "hateful," i.e., guilty of a hate crime. The "be positive, not negative" meeting, though appearing to be "loving" is in itself a hate crime against parental/Godly restraint, making the child's deceitful and wicked heart the foundation from which to determine right from wrong, over and therefore against doing right and not wrong according to his or her parent's, i.e., the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth. "Private convictions," i.e., the child's desire to do right and not wrong according to his or her parent's, i.e., the father's/Father's will, i.e., the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning is negated in the "group grade," consensus, facilitated, "group psychotherapy" classroom. It is the same procedure being used in the workplace, in government, and even in the "church" in order (as in a new world order) to 'create' a "feeling" of "oneness," i.e., "build relationships upon self interest" around the world—based upon the child's carnal nature.
"[We] must develop persons [students] who see non-influencability of private convictions [those student's holding on to their parent's, i.e., the father's/Father's authority] in joint deliberations [in the facilitated, consensus, "group grade" "relationship building" classroom] as a vice rather than a virtue [as being "negative," i.e., "the problem" instead of "positive," i.e., contributing to the solution]." (Kenneth D. Benne, Human Relations in Curriculum Change) Why are we so far in debt as a nation? Is it not the result of children (in adult bodies), i.e., so called "representatives," i.e., children of disobedience using their parent's, i.e., their constituents credit card, putting their constituents and their children into debt in order (as in new world order) for them to rule the world, enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates—doing so in consensus meeting, having no guilty conscience for their actions, i.e., for making the next generation slaves to their debt masters, claiming it was necessary for the "good" of "the people."
"Few individuals, as Asch has shown, can maintain their objectivity [their belief, i.e., their faith in authority, be it in their parent's, their teacher's, their boss's, their leader(s), or God's authority] in the face of apparent group unanimity [especially when "the group" is excluding, i.e., rejecting them (because of their "ridged," i.e., "prejudiced," i.e., unadaptable to 'change' "negative" attitude, i.e., their holding onto the father's/Father's restraints) is heading down the road, hand in hand with their carnal desire (lusts) of the 'moment,' "enjoying" it without them]." (Irvin D. Yalom, Theory and Practice and Group Psychotherapy)
If adults can not handle the group pressure of the consensus process (very few can), how do you think children will be able to handle it? Who would put their child in such an environment anyway?
"The child takes on the characteristic behavior of the group in which he is placed. . . . he reflects the behavior patterns which are set by the adult leader of the group." (Kurt Lewin in Wilbur Brookover, A Sociology of Education)
By replacing 1) 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 the children might have regarding the commands, rules, facts, and truth being taught (at the one in authorities' discretion, providing he deems it necessary, has time, the children are able to understand, and are not questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking his authority), 2) blessing or rewarding the children who obey and do things right, 3) chastening or reproving the child who disobeys and/or does things wrong, and 4) casting out (expelling, grounding) and child who questions, challenges, defies, disregards, attacks 1-4, with the dialoging of opinions to a consensus, children are 'liberated' from parental authority, turned into socialist-globalists—questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking authority. The words that come out of their mouth reveals the heart from which they originate. It is more than your child's "education" that is at stake.
"For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." Matthew 22:37
"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
The problem is not only what you say but what you do not say. You are not accountable for what happens to you, but you are for how you respond. To be silent in the midst of unrighteousness, i.e., to suspend the truth (as on a cross) in order to initiate or sustain the affirmation of others, i.e., the approval of men is to make unrighteousness the "norm"—with your affirmation. Silence is consent.
"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
"It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4
"And when the woman saw ... she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat." Genesis 3:6
"I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." "For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak." John 5:30; 12:47-50
The problem is your eyes come before your ears, lusting after the carnal pleasure of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating, blinding you to what you are told.
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17
"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6
"Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." Psalms 119:11
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," "open ended, non-directed," 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)—as predators, charlatans, pimps, pedophiles, 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
