"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
"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
Overview Of The Dialectic Process. What It Really Is.
When used to establish right and wrong behavior the dialectic process, i..e., dialogue ("I feel" and "I think"), i.e., the "affective domain" effects ('changes') your children's, teacher's, sheriff's, legislator's, minister's, etc., and even your way of thinking—makes everything subjective, i.e., only "of (and for) the world" (even when done in the name of the Lord), negating the father's/Father's authority (in the child's, et al thoughts), thereby (as a result) negating the child, et al having a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or object, people, or person (imagined or real) is stimulating, directly effecting his feelings, thoughts, and actions toward his self, others, the world, and authority (changing his paradigm), i.e., 'justifying' his self (his lusts), others (who lust), and the world (which stimulates lust), 'justifying' his hatred toward, removal and negation of the father's/Father's authority (and anyone who submits their self to him/Him and his/His authority) for getting in the way of his lusts, i.e., his self interests. Dialogue is (or was) the "Why?" in your response to the father's/Father's command, rule, fact, or truth that gets (got) in the way of what you want(ed) to do or want(ed) to have. When it comes to establishing right and wrong behavior the dialectic process (dialogue) so easily becomes ("owns") you (if you let it, i.e., when you yield to it, i.e., when you "lean to your own understanding") because it 'justifies' your self, i.e., your "lust of the flesh," "lust of the eyes," and "pride of life," which are only "of the world." There is no father's/Father's authority in dialogue, in an opinion, or in the consensus process, there is only your self interest, i.e., your lust for pleasure and hatred toward restraint being 'justified' (in your mind), directly effecting your (and your children's, etc.) actions (behavior). When you reject the father's/Father's authority (system), the child's carnal nature (the Karl Marx) in you, i.e., "the lust of the flesh," "the lust of the eyes," and "the pride of life," i.e., only that which is "of the world" is all you have from which to establish right and wrong behavior. This is the dialectic process being put into praxis (into personal-social action). You can not see the dialectic process effecting you (until it is to late) unless someone points it out, since it is such a big part of your daily life. It is why you must die to your self daily, i.e., deny your lusts daily, endure the rejection of others for not 'justifying' their lusts, and follow the Lord, doing the Father's will—in order to not let it (and those who use it to) control ("own") you.
