"You Can't Tell Me What I Can Not Do Or Say."
"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, i.e., "self interest" is the standard for "good" instead of doing the father's/Father's will, i.e., having to set aside your carnal desires of the 'moment,' i.e., having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline your "self" in order (as in "old" world order) to do the father's/Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth], and desperately wicked [hating the father's/Father's authority that "gets in the way," i.e. that prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks you from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 You can not see your hate of restraint as being evil, i.e., "wicked" because your love of pleasure, i.e., your "self interest," is in the way, blinding you to it. Like a drug, pleasure (dopamine emancipation), i.e., "self interest" which the world stimulates blinds you to your hatred toward restraint, i.e., blinds you to your "wickedness" which is being expressed toward those who are preventing (or trying to prevent) you from having access to the drug, i.e., to pleasure (dopamine emancipation) when you are doing wrong, disobeying, sinning—making you not just wicked but "desperately wicked" in your effort to attain it, keep it, or get it back. In the praxis of the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process, you not only become intoxicated with, but addicted to and possessed by your "self" being 'justified' by others, with you then 'justifying' them, affirming your and their carnal nature, i.e., "self interests" over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, i.e., knowing right from not wrong by being told.
"You can't tell me what I can not do or say." That is the attitude of carnally minded, i.e., "self" centered children (including those in adult bodies) when they are told what they can not do or say. The soul knows by being told, requiring you to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline your "self" in order to hear and receive the truth. The flesh knows by "sense experience," i.e., by experiencing for its "self," 'justifying' (esteeming) "self." In the garden, as is true today, there were two choices, One by being told, the other by "sense experience." One leads to eternal life. The other to eternal death.
"In an ordinary discussion people usually hold relatively fixed positions and argue in favour of their views as they try to convince others to change." (Bohm and Peat, Science, Order, and Creativity) In a discussion you must suspend, as upon a cross, your carnal desires of the 'moment,' i.e., your "self interest" in order to hear and receive the truth, i.e., you must humble, deny, die to, control, discipline your "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, making your "self" subject to authority (accountable for your thoughts and actions).
"A dialogue is essentially a conversation between equals." "The spirit of dialogue, is in short, the ability to hold many points of view in suspension, along with a primary interest in the creation of common meaning." (ibid.) In dialogue you must suspend, as upon a cross, any command, rule, fact, or truth that gets in the way of dialogue, i.e., that inhibits or blocks, i.e., prevents you and the other persons from discovering and building relationship with one another based upon your and their common carnal nature, i.e., your and their common "self interests" (what "lusts," i.e., carnal desires, i.e., "feeling" you and they have in common)—which is the broad path of common-ism.
"In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other, they experience the common ground of their existence." (Jürgen Habermas, Knowledge & Human Interest, Chapter Three: The Idea of the Theory of Knowledge as Social Theory) It is in dialogue we discover our commonality with one another, i.e., our common "self interests" in each other, 'justifying' our "self," i.e., "the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," i.e., what which we have in common, i.e., that which is "of the world" only. "Lust" becomes manifest when dialogue is brought into the realm of discussion (right and wrong), establishing "self," i.e., love of pleasure over and therefore against established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will.
Discussion, indicative of the father's/Father's authority results in the one in authority directing the outcome, deciding right from wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth. Dialogue, indicative of the child's carnal nature results in the one(s), i.e., psychologist(s), "behavioral 'scientist(s),'" "group psychotherapist(s)," facilitator(s) of 'change,' Transformational Marxist(s) (all being the same in method, formula, or structure of though, i.e., paradigm) seducing, deceiving, and manipulating "the group" with its "feelings," i.e., its carnal desires, i.e., its "self interests" of the 'moment,' directing the outcome. Today all decisions (in the home, in education, in the workplace, in government, and even in the "church') are being made by "sense experience," i.e., "If you make me 'feel' good (like God—only God is good) then what you are doing or saying must be right, i.e., I will listen to you, i.e., I will affirm you." "If you 'hurt' my 'feelings' (do not make me 'feel' good, like God) then you must be wrong, i.e., I will not listen to you, i.e., I will not affirm you." making right and wrong, as in the garden, subject to "sense experience," i.e., to the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus (affirmation) process rather than to the Word of God, i.e., being told.
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge [knowing by being told], I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." Hosea 4:6
"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." Romans 1:28-32
The objective of dialogue (when it comes to right and wrong) is to "prevent someone who KNOWS from filling the empty space," (Wilfred Bion, A Memoir of the Future) It is why the father has to resort to "Because I say so," when the child, continuing to argue, demands "Why?" in response to the father's/Father's command, i.e., refuses to accept the father's/Father's preaching, teaching, and discussion (which retains the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the father's/Father's final say on the issue), insisting upon dialogue instead (wanting to have his way). There is no father's/Father's authority in dialogue, only the child's carnal desires, i.e., "self interest" of the 'moment' which the world stimulates. Dialogue is our "light" within us which illumines our carnal desires of the 'moment' which the world stimulates.
"Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness." Luke 11:35
"The ideas of the Enlightenment taught man that he could trust his own reason [his own "feelings," i.e., his own "sensuous needs" and "sense perception," i.e., his own "sense experience," i.e., "self" 'justification'] as a guide to establishing valid ethical norms and that he could rely on himself, needing neither revelation [the Word of God, i.e., the Father's commands and rules to be obeyed as given and His facts and truth to be accepted as is, by faith] nor that authority of the church [following the Son of God, Jesus Christ, preaching, teaching, and discussing the Word of God, in obedience to the Father] in order to know good and evil." (Stephen Eric Bronner, Of Critical Theory and Its Theorists)
"Experience is, for me, the highest authority." "Neither the Bible nor the prophets, neither the revelations of God can take precedence over my own direct experience." (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, on becoming a person)
"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') In other words, Karl Marx is saying: "Lust" "reconciles us to" "the world." For Marx, if pleasure ("lust") is the 'drive' and the 'purpose' of life, then negating the father's/Father's authority, which gets in the way of pleasure, must take place.
"Sense experience must be the basis of all science." "Science is only genuine science when it proceeds from sense experience, in the two forms of sense perception and sensuous need, that is, only when it proceeds from Nature." (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3) By making science subject to "human nature," i.e., to the carnal nature of the child, i.e., to love of pleasure, i.e., "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, Karl Marx simply replaced the words "lust of the flesh," "lust of the eyes," "pride of life, " and "all that is of the world," with "sensuous needs," "sense perception," "sense experience," and "only when it proceeds from Nature" making the child's carnal nature the medium from which to know right from wrong, good from evil, requiring the negation of the father's/Father's authority before that can become reality.
"Once the earthly family [with children having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline their "self" in order (as in "old" world order) to do the father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according to the father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth] is discovered to be the secret of the Holy family [with the Son humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining his "self" in order to do the Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according to the Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth], the former [the earthly father's authority, i.e., the system itself with children having to trust in (have faith in) and obey the father (their parents), their teacher, the laws of the land, etc.,] must then itself be destroyed [vernichtet, i.e., annihilated, i.e., negated] in theory and in practice [in the children's thoughts as well as in their actions—resulting in children no longer "fellowshipping" with one another based upon the father's/Father's (their parents/God's) commands, rules, facts, and truth but, through dialogue, "building relationship" with one another based upon their carnal nature, i.e., their carnal desires, i.e., their "self interests," i.e., their "lusts" of the 'moment,' 'creating' a "new" world order where the child's carnal nature rules without parental restraint]." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4)
"... the central problem is to change reality.… reality with its 'obedience to laws.'" (György Lukács, History & Class Consciousness: What is Orthodox Marxism?) In other words: "reality" is found in "self," i.e., in the child's carnal desires and dissatisfactions of the 'moment,' and the world that stimulates it, not in anyone external to it, restraining it, requiring "obedience to laws" that go against and even condemn "human nature."
"Lawfulness without law:" where the child's carnal nature, i.e., "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," i.e., "human nature" rules without the father's/Father's authority, i.e., without "obedience to laws" getting in the way, where the child's carnal nature is 'justified' over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority. (Immanuel Kant, Critique of Judgment)
"The child, contrary to appearance, is the absolute, the rationality of the relationship; he is what is enduring and everlasting, the totality which produces itself once again as such [once he is 'liberated' from the father'/Father's authority to become as he was before the father's/Father's first command, rule, fact, or truth came into his life (separating him from his "self" and the world), of (and now for) "self" and the world only]." (Georg Hegel, System of Ethical Life)
"... the hatred against patriarchal suppression—a 'barrier to incest,' ... the desire (for the sons) to return to the mother culminates in the rebellion of the exiled sons, the collective killing and devouring of the father." (Sigmund Freud in Herbert Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: a psychological inquiry into Freud) According to Sigmund Freud, children, having been cast out by the father for their carnal behavior ("incest"), united as one—in consensus "killing and devouring" the father/Father, negating the father's/Father's authority from the face of the earth—so they could be their "self," i.e., "of and for self" and the world only.
"'It is not really a decisive matter whether one has killed one's father or abstained from the deed,' if the function of the conflict and its consequences are the same [the father no longer exercises his authority or has authority over his children in the home, forcing them to do right and not wrong according to his established commands, rules, facts, and truth that go against their nature, i.e., their carnal desires of the 'moment,' that the world stimulates]." (ibid.)
"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works [corruption]." 2 Corinthians 11:14, 15
"To experience Freud is to partake a second time of the forbidden fruit;" (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)
"If the guilt accumulated in the civilized domination of man by man can ever be redeemed by freedom, then the 'original sin' must be committed again: 'We must again eat from the tree of knowledge in order to fall back into the state of innocence.'" (Marcuse, Eros and Civilization)
Philosophy, sociology, psychology all have this one thing in common, resentment toward being told., i.e., hatred toward the father's/Father's authority.
"The philosophers have only interpreted the world in different ways, the objective however, is change." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #11) All children are "philosophers," 1) dissatisfied with how the world "Is," where they, having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline their "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth are subject to their parent's authority, not being able to do what they want when they want, 2) thinking (dialoguing with their "self") aka imagining how the world "Ought" to be, where they can do what they want, when the want, and 3) how it "Can" be once the father's/Father's authority is no longer in their way. The problem, according to Karl Marx, et, al, is that once children grow up and have children of their own they tell (force) their children to do right and not wrong according to their established commands, rules, facts, and truth, telling them what they can and can not do, getting in their way, i.e., preventing them from "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, i.e., preventing them from being (becoming) their "self," i.e., preventing 'change.' Without creating a world of dialogue, the child, out of fear of being judged, chastened, condemned, and/or cast out privately dialoguing within (with) his "self" his love of pleasure and hate of restraint will remain forever "repressed" by the father's/Father's authority system—since he is not strong enough, by his "self' to overthrow the father/Father and his/His authority system.
As Robert Dale Owen stated, in response to his father's (Robert Owen's) attempt the develop the first socialist society, all socialism produces are the "improvident, unskilled, and vicious." "All cooperative schemes which provide equal remuneration to the skilled and industrious and the ignorant and idle must work their own downfall. For by this unjust plan they must of necessity eliminate the valuable members and retain only the improvident, unskilled, and vicious." (Robert Dale Owen, Robert Owen's son) "Socialism rewards bad work, capitalism rewards good work."
"According to Freud, the ultimate essence of our being is erotic, and demands activity according to the pleasure-principle ["lust," "enjoyment," dopamine emancipation]." "The foundation on which the man of the future will be built is already there, in the repressed unconscious [in the carnal nature of the child]; the foundation has to be recovered ['liberated' from the father's/Father's authority]. " "The individual is emancipated in the social group." "I wagered my intellectual life on the idea of finding in Freud what was missing in Marx." (Brown, Life Against Death:)
"Third-Force psychology is also epi-Marxian in these senses, i.e., including the most basic scheme as true-good social conditions [an environment void of the father's/Father's authority where children can "actualize" their "self" without fear of judgment or condemnation] are necessary for personal growth, bad social conditions [where children have to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline their "self" in order to do the father's/Father's aka their parents will] stunt human nature,... This is to say, one could reinterpret Marx into a self-actualization-fostering Third- and Fourth-Force psychology-philosophy. And my impression is anyway that this is the direction in which they are going now." "The whole discussion becomes species-wide, One World." "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)
"Self-actualizing people have to a large extent transcended the values of their culture [their parent's/God's authority aka the father's/Father's authority]. They are not so much merely Americans as they are world citizens, members of the human species [Globalists] first and foremost." (Abraham Maslow, Farther Reaches of Human Nature)
"Freud, Hegel, ... are, like Marx, compelled to postulate external domination and its assertion by force in order to explain repression." "The repression of normal adult sexuality is required only by cultures which are based on patriarchal domination." "Self-perfection of the human individual is fulfilled in union with the world in pleasure." (Brown, Life Against Death:) This is antithetical to "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." Matthew 5:45
By making right and wrong subject to dialogue (dialoguing opinions to a consensus, i.e., affirmation), i.e., to "feelings," i.e., to "sense experience," i.e., subject to the child's carnal nature instead of discussion, i.e., subject to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., being told, i.e., subject to the father's/Father's authority we now have a society which does what it wants, when it wants, no longer considering the consequence of its thoughts and actions—doing wrong, disobeying, sinning ("lusting") without having a guilty conscience, i.e., doing wrong, disobeying, sinning ("lusting") with impunity, i.e., with "group approval," i.e., with affirmation, killing (or not caring about what happens to) the unborn, elderly, innocent, righteous, or anyone who gets in the way of its "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates. The pathway to "Utopia" is strewn with the bodies of those who got in the way.
"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
"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." "... the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth;" Genesis 6:5; 8:21
"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25
"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
"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
"[E]very one of us shall give account of himself to God." Romans 14:12
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
"For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing:" Romans 7:18
"It is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23
