"What Is Going To Happen To Me?"
(Personal note.)

Dean Gotcher

"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

"What is going to happen to me (if the group rejects me)?" is you 'justifying your "self," i.e., "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life."

"Few individuals, as Asch has shown, can maintain their objectivity [their belief, i.e., their faith in authority, be it in their parent's and/or God's authority] in the face of apparent group unanimity [especially when "the group" is excluding, i.e., rejecting the child because of his "ridged," i.e., "prejudiced," i.e., unadaptable to 'change' "negative" attitude, i.e., his holding onto his parents, i.e., the father's/Father's standards, i.e., preaching, teaching, and attempting to discuss commands, rules, facts, and truth to/with "the group" while "the group" is heading down the road, hand in hand enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the child desires himself, "enjoying" them without him, i.e., excluding (rejecting) him in the process for the way he is thinking and acting, i.e., for not joining with them, 'justifying' their (and his) carnal nature over and therefore against their (and his) parent's authority, i.e., the father's/Father's authority]."  (Irvin D. Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy)

Two forces, what Kurt Lewin called "force fields" are active in a group setting. One is doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth that you have been taught—under threat of punishment, i.e., consequences if you disobey or do wrong or sin, preventing 'change.' The other is doing what you want, i.e., what you "feel" like doing in the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating, with the approval of others and the fear of rejection by them being extremely strong, engendering 'change.' One is formal. The other informal. One is based upon preaching, teaching, and discussing, with authority making the final decision. The other upon dialogue, with everyone having input. One is "top-down." The other is common amongst all. By placing a person in an environment of dialogue, deciding right and wrong behavior pressures the preaching, teaching, discussing person into experiencing a condition known as "cognitive dissonance" where he is caught between his belief, which is formal and his desire for approval from other, which is informal, having to choose between the one or the other in order to restore internal stability, with the pressure from "the group" to participate with its activates, what Sigmund Freud called the "pleasure-principle" more than likely wining out over the "reality-principle," i.e., the consequences for doing wrong (according to commands, rules, facts, and truth that are foreign to the persons carnal nature, restraining his carnal impulses and urges), resulting in the force of pleasure, i.e., "lust" (that is desired, that is "positive") winning out over the force of authority, i.e., the father's/Father's authority (that gets in the way of pleasure, that is "negative"). Placing a child in such an environment has dire consequences, turning him against his parents authority, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, with the "voice of the village," i.e., "the group," i.e., "the people," i.e., "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life" (what all people have in common) now in control of his thoughts and actions.

"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)

"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
