Traditional vs. Transformational Education.

Dean Gotcher

Traditional Education is structured (patterned) after the father's/Father's authority. Transformational Education is structured (patterned) after the child's carnal nature.

The father's/Father's authority (system, method, or pattern):

1)  preaching commands and rules to be obeyed,
     teaching facts and truth to be accepted as is, by faith, and
     discussing with his children any question(s) they might have regarding 
     any command(s), rule(s), fact(s), or truth given,
        at the one in authorities' discretion:
            providing he has time,
            those under his authority are able to understand, and 
            are not questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding,
                attacking his authority,

2) rewarding and/or blessing those who do right and obey, in order to
     encourage them to continue to do right and obey,
3) correcting and/or chastening those who do wrong and/or disobey, in
     order for them to learn to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline their
    "self" and do right and/or obey, and
4) casting out (expelling) any who question, challenge, defy,
    disregard, attack authority, in order to maintain order.

The father's/Father's authority requires those under authority (and in authority) to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, engendering a guilty conscience for/when doing wrong, disobeying, sinning. In traditional education the objective is to teach children to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline their "self" in order (as in "old" world order) to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth.

The child's carnal nature (system, method, or pattern):

1) approach pleasure,
      including the pleasure which comes with being affirmed by others
2) avoid pain,
      including the pain which comes with missing out on pleasure,
      including the pain with comes with being rejected by others.

The child, by nature, seeks ("lust") after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation), which the world (the current situation—imagined or real) stimulates. He therefore hates anyone who gets in his way, i.e., who inhibits or blocks (prevents) him from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' he desires. He is absorbed in his "self." When caught doing wrong, disobeying, sinning he naturally attempts to 'justify' his "self." He dialogues with his "self" ('reasons' with his "self"), 'justifying' his carnal nature, i.e., his love of pleasure and hate of restraint.

In transformational education the objective of the "educator," i.e., the psychologist, i.e., the "behavior scientist," i.e., the group psychotherapist, i.e., the facilitator of 'change', i.e., the Transformational Marxist (all being the same in method or formula) is to "help" children (and their parents) "esteem" ('justify') their "self" (affirm their carnal nature). By 'creating' a group grade," "safe zone/space/place," "Be positive, not negative," soviet style, brainwashing, "Bloom's Taxonomy," affective domain classroom, in order (as in "new" world order) to seduce, deceive, and manipulate children (and their parents) into dialoguing their opinions ("feelings") to a consensus (affirmation)—turning them, as chickens, rats, and dogs into "human resource" —they are able to negate the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the children's (and parents) thoughts and actions (called the negation of negation). By replacing the guilty conscience for doing wrong and not right according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline "self" in order to do the father's/Father's will, which is "negative" to the child's carnal nature, with the "super-ego," i.e., with the child's "feelings" (desires) of the 'moment,' which are being stimulated by the world (or situation), which is "positive" to the child's carnal nature, they are able to use the children (and their parents) for their own pleasure and gain. Even home schooling is being pulled into the praxis.

Transformational education, i.e., 'liberating' children from the father's/Father's authority so they could do wrong, disobey, sin without having a guilty conscience is what Immanuel Kant, Georg Hegel, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud had in mind—putting into praxis Genesis 3:1-6, negating Hebrews 12:5-11, thereby negating Romans 7:14-25 (the real agenda) so they could do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity.

"Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?" Romans 6:16

"No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Luke 16:13

"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

"Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." "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 5:19, 30; 12:47-50

"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

"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

"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." Matthew 23:9

"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. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me:" Matthew 10:32-37

"and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ." 1 John 1:3
