Wide Gates To Hell.

Dean Gotcher

"I greatly fear that the universities, unless they teach the Holy Scriptures diligently and impress them on the young students, are wide gates to hell." "I would advise no one to send his child where the Holy Scriptures are not supreme. Every institution that does not unceasingly pursue the study of God's word becomes corrupt." (Martin Luther, Luther's Works: Vol. 1, The Christian in Society: p. 207)

"The school must make room for the deviant student." (Robert Havighurst and Hilda Taba, Adolescent Character and Personality)

"We must develop persons who see non-influenceability of private convictions in joint deliberations as a vice rather than a virtue." (Kenneth Benne, Human Relations in Curriculum Change)

When you make room for (affirm) the deviate student, tolerating deviancy in the classroom, deviancy becomes the norm. Using psychology (the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus) in the classroom 'changes' the student, i.e., establishes his or her carnal nature, i.e., love of pleasure and hate of restraint over and therefore against God's authority, i.e., doing the Father's will.

"Freud noted that patricide and incest [love of pleasure and hate of restraint] are part of man's deepest nature."  (Irvin Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy"If the guilt [the "guilty conscience" for disobeying the Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth] accumulated in the civilized domination of man by man [reflected in the Father's authority over his children] can ever be redeemed by freedom [the children 'redeemed, i.e. 'liberated' from the Father's authority, 'reconciled' back to the world], then the 'original sin' [the children determining what is right and what is wrong according to their own personal (carnal) "feelings" and "thoughts" of the 'moment'] must be committed again: We must again eat from the tree of knowledge in order to fall back into the state of innocence [as the "children" were before their Father's first command and threat of chastening for disobedience (threat of being cast out for disrespecting his authority) came into their lives, resulting in them, having no access to the tree of life (their inheritance) dying in their sins]." (Herbart Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: A philosophical inquiry into Freud"The entry into Freud cannot avoid being a plunge into a strange world and a strange language—a world of sick men, ....It is a shattering experience for anyone seriously committed to the Western traditions of morality and rationality to take a steadfast, unflinching look at what Freud has to say. To experience Freud is to partake a second time of the forbidden fruit; and this book cannot without sinning communicate that experience to the reader." "Our real choice is between holy and unholy madness: open your eyes and look around you—madness is in the saddle anyhow." "It is possible to be mad and to be unblest, but it is not possible to get the blessing without the madness; it is not possible to get the illuminations without the derangement," "I wagered my intellectual life on the idea of finding in Freud what was missing in Marx."  (Norman O. Brown, regarding his book Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)  Mike Connor commenting on Brown and his work on Freud and Marx, at Browns funeral stated: "But Brown believed that the payoff was worth the price of sin—namely, that alienation would be overcome, and the return of the repressed completed, rendering problems of sin permanently moot. Life Against Death established Brown, along with his colleague and friend Herbert Marcuse, and later Charles Reich, as an intellectual leader of the New Left …. a Marxist mode of Freudian analysis. Brown's push to resurrect the human body with all its erotic urges freely expressed, resonated with the members of the Human Potential Movement and the undergrads they were influencing in the 60's." (March 23-30, 2005 issue of Metro Santa Cruz)  As was put into praxis by the citizens of Sodom, i.e. abomination and the threat to harm any who got in their way of realizing it ("now will we deal worse with thee, than with them." Genesis 19:9), we find ourselves facing the same attitude from an ever escalating culture of abomination (initiated and sustained by the praxis of psychology).

"Marxian theory needs Freudian-type instinct theory to round it out. And of course, vice versa." "This is a realistic combination of the Marxian version & the Humanistic. (Better add to definition of "humanistic" that it also means one species, One World.)" (Abraham Maslow, The Journals of Abraham Maslow)  "Psychoanalysis must treat religion [man having faith in God as a child has faith in his father, obeying His commands and accepting his chastening when he disobeys] as a neurosis."  (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History "God is conceived more directly after a parental image and thus as a source of support and as a guiding and sometimes punishing authority."  "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."  (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality"I have found whenever I ran across authoritarian students that the best thing for me to do was to break their backs immediately."  "The correct thing to do with authoritarians is to take them realistically for the bastards they are and then behave toward them as if they were bastards." (Abraham Maslow, Maslow on Management)

When you are silent in the midst of unrighteousness, refusing to condemn the thoughts and the actions of the unrighteous, warning them of the consequences of their thoughts and actions, casting them out of the class if they refuse to repent—not condemning the person themselves, God does that—unrighteousness becomes the "norm." Your silence in such a moment reveals your fear of being rejected by others, i.e., your fear of loosing out on the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' or the future you desire, i.e., what you can get out of the situation or person for yourself, which includes approval (affirmation) from them, revealing the unrighteousness within you.

"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: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that " Matthew 10:32-39

"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
