Why "Conservatives" Will Not Win The Battle.
"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
"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's/Father's authority as being evil, i.e., "wicked," i.e., "desperately wicked" because it's lust for pleasure is standing in the way, 'justifying' the hate.
"Despotism ... predominates in the human heart [in man's lust for dopamine emancipation]." (George Washington, Farewell Address)
"... it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23
"... I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet." Romans 7:7
"Conservatives" will not win the battle because they refuse to deal with their sins, i.e., the lusts in their own heart—like Adam and the woman in the garden in Eden, blaming someone else for their problems instead of looking at themselves, i.e., "conserving" themselves instead of repenting. God looks at the heart of "the people" to determine what to do with the nation. He is looking at your heart. Is the nation worth saving?
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
The Lord made it clear (before pilot and the world) that this world (that which is of the world) is not his kingdom. This nation is not a "theocracy" but it was blessed because of "believers" not "Christians," trusting in the Lord with all their heart, soul, and mind, doing His Father's will instead of theirs. As in the Soviet Union, in the "new" world order they kill "believers" not "Christians." (Belief, i.e., faith is killed the 'moment' a "believer" goes into dialogue, i.e., makes his opinion, i.e., his carnal nature, i.e., his lusts of the 'moment,' including his desire (lust) for approval from others the foundation from which to determine right and wrong behavior, instead of turning to the Word of God) When a "Christian" goes to Washington he will compromise in order to save "the church," i.e., his self, i.e., his lusts." A "believer," on the other hand, having died to his self, i.e., his lusts, will preach the Word of God without shame, enduring rejection and being cast out.
"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
"Do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ." Galatians 1:10
Whether you go to Washington or stay at home pulling weeds, washing dishes, etc., it is still the same, either save your self, i.e., the world around you, including "the church" and the lusts it stimulates or trust in the Lord letting him direct your steps, doing His Father's will no matter what it cost you in this life, i.e., respect with your relatives and "friends," your job, next term in office, etc.,—you will never go deeper into the Word of God than your friends (desire for "relationship" with others) will allow you. Why then would you "build relationship" with those of the world, including "Christians"—who will quickly and happily 'justify' your (and therefore their) lusts, i.e., self interests—when they will "throw you under the bus" (or in silence let someone else do it for them) when you get in their way, i.e., in the way of their lusts, doing to you what you will have to do to the Heavenly Father for getting in the way of your lusts, including your lust for "relationship" with your "friends" because they 'justify' your lusts?
"Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful." Proverbs 27:6
"[E]very one of us shall give account of himself to God." Romans 14:12
On the day of judgment (where you will know—without question—where you will spend eternity, eternal life or eternal death) your opinion (or anyone else's opinion) will not count. Why then let your self be controlled by men's opinions, thus "conserving" your self, i.e., your lusts instead of dying to your self, letting the Lord direct your steps? Where you will spend eternity is at stake! Or maybe, living in the lusts of the 'moment,' i.e., in the "eternal present" that does not "bother" you now, you have the world and the "church," i.e., your lusts to save, i.e., to "conserve." Doctors warn that the hospital is the most dangerous place to be, for your health sake. The same can now be said of the "church," for your soul sake. "Ministers," i.e., facilitator's of 'change' are (through the use of dialogue—there is no Father's authority in dialogue, there is only your opinion) turning believers into "Christians" in order to 'change' the world, making it safe for them, so they can lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates without having fear of being judged, condemned, and/or cast out, i.e., without having a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating, with "the people's," i.e., the "churches" approval, affirming their carnal desires, i.e., lusts.
"And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you." 2 Peter 2:3
All the 'liberal,' i.e., the facilitator of 'change' has to do is through dialogue 'discover' what the "conservative's" self interests, i.e., lusts are and, offering to "help" him achieve them, i.e., seducing, deceiving, and manipulating him, use him to satisfy his own carnal pleasure, i.e., lusts. This works as well in the "church" as it does in Washington.
"If we have the power or authority to establish the necessary conditions, the predicted behaviors [our potential ability to influence or control the behavior of groups] will follow." "We can choose to use our growing knowledge to enslave people in ways never dreamed of before, depersonalizing them, controlling them by means so carefully selected that they will perhaps never be aware of their loss of personhood." "We know how to change the opinions of an individual in a selected direction, without his ever becoming aware of the stimuli which changed his opinion." "We know how to influence the ... behavior of individuals by setting up conditions which provide satisfaction for needs of which they are unconscious, but which we have been able to determine." We can achieve a sort of control under which the controlled though they are following a code much more scrupulously than was ever the case under the old system, nevertheless feel free. They are doing what they want to do, not what they are forced to do." "By a careful design, we control not the final behavior, but the inclination to behavior—the motives, the desires, the wishes. The curious thing is that in that case the question of freedom never arises." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)
"Prior to therapy the person is prone to ask himself, 'What would my parents want me to do?' During the process of therapy the individual come to ask himself, 'What does it mean to me?'" (Rogers) This works as well for "conservatives" in Washington, i.e., "What would my constituents want me to do?" vs. "What can I get out of this for my self?"
It is easier to compromise, i.e., to be your self., i.e., to 'justify' your lusts in a group.
"It is usually easier to change individuals formed into a group than to change any one of them separately." "The individual accepts the new system of values and beliefs by accepting belongingness to the group." (Kurt Lewin in Kenneth Bennie, Human Relations in Curriculum Change)
"There is no more important issue than the interrelationship of the group members." "To question the value or activities of the group, would be to thrust himself into a state of dissonance." "Few individuals, as Asch has shown, can maintain their objectivity in the face of apparent group unanimity." (Irvin D. Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy)
"One of the most fascinating aspects of group therapy is that everyone is born again, born together in the group." (Yalom)
"Without exception, ["conservatives"] enter group therapy [the "conservative" party] with the history of a highly unsatisfactory experience in their first and most important group—their primary family [their constituents telling them what they can and can not do]." "What better way to help [the "conservative"] recapture the past than to allow him to re-experience and reenact ancient feelings [resentment, hostility] toward parents [his constituents] in his current relationship to the therapist [the facilitator of 'change and "the party"]? The [facilitator of 'change'] is the living personification of all parental images [takes the place of the constituents]. Group [facilitators] refuse to fill the traditional authority role: they do not lead in the ordinary manner, they do not provide answers and solutions [teach right from wrong from established commands, rules, facts, and truth], they urge the group [the "conservatives"] to explore and to employ its own resources [to dialogue their "feelings," i.e., their desires and dissatisfactions of the 'moment' in the "light" of the current situation, i.e., their desire for "the group" approval (affirmation)]. The group ["conservatives"] must feel free to confront the [the facilitator of 'change'], who must not only permit, but encourage, such confrontation [rebellion and anarchy]. He [the "conservative"] reenacts early family scripts in the group and, if therapy [brainwashing—washing respect for and fear of the father's/Father's authority from the child's brain (thoughts) ] is successful, is able to experiment with new behavior, to break free from the locked family role [submitting to the father's/Father's authority, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will] he once occupied. … the patient [the child] changes the past by reconstituting it ['creating' a "new" world order from his "ought," i.e., a world "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the current situation and/or people are stimulating, i.e., a world void of the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience which the father's/Father's authority engenders for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the current situation and/or people are stimulating]." (Yalom)
"Authoritarian submission [humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining "self" in order to do the father's/Father's will] 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)
"And truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ." 1 John 1:3
The believer turns to the Father, and His Son Jesus Christ, i.e., the Word of God for direction concerning right and wrong behavior, instead of to man, i.e., including the opinions of men in the "church." "Miserable Christians, whose words and faith still depend on the interpretations of men and who expect clarification from them! This is frivolous and ungodly. The Scriptures are common to all, and are clear enough in respect to what is necessary for salvation and are also obscure enough for inquiring minds ... let us reject the word of man." (Luther's Works: Vol. 32, Career of the Reformer: II, p.217) "Protestantism [where doing the Father's will no matter what, i.e., individualism, under God] was the strongest force in the extension of cold rational individualism." (Max Horkheimer, Vernunft and Selbsterhaltung; English, "Reasoning and Self Preservation," i.e., using your reasoning to 'justify' your self, i.e., your lusts, blaming someone else or the situation when you get caught where "Protestantism" was to recognize you are at fault and repent before the Lord, putting no person, i.e., rocks, i.e., friends or situation,, i.e., thorns, i.e., cares of the world between him and you).
"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
"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 he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels." Luke 9:23-26 [Deny your lusts, endure the rejection of others (including your "friends") for not affirming, i.e., 'justifying' their lusts, and following the Lord, do the Father's will.]
"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." Matthew 23:9
"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." 1 John 2:15
"No man 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." Matthew 6:24
"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
"And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." 2 Corinthians 6:15-18
"As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man [according to men's opinions]. For I neither received it of man [through dialogue], neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ." Galatians 1:9-12
"He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son." 1 John 2:22
"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
The "conservative" will not win the battle because he has his self interest, i.e., his lusts, i.e., "What can I get out of this situation and/or person for my self" in mind, directing his thoughts regarding right and wrong behavior, which leads him to the fear of man, i.e., "What will happen to me if they reject me and/or turn on me?" instead of "What is the right thing to do according to the Word of God?" i.e., turning to the Lord and following him, doing the Father's will no matter what. "Conservatives" might mention God, but their heart is in themselves, i.e., "conserving" ("Preserving") their self, i.e., their lusts—without them the world (and their lusts) can not be saved. They are not the solution but part of the problem, if not the problem itself. When you dance the Marxist waltz with those of the world, i.e. "build relationship with them based upon your and their common self interest" they will take you two steps forward—one step past your lusts, i.e., your self interest—till you object, then take one step back, with your approval, i.e., with you thinking you (and they) have come back to your original position. Foolish you. Repeating the two steps forward and one step back they will waltz you across the room, i.e., "own" you. That is how it is done to "conservatives" in Washington, in your community, in the classroom, around the world.
"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
"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," "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
