The difference between the "old" and "new" world orders.
"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." Jeremiah 6:16 For the full picture of where we are today read Jeremiah 6-7.
The "old" world order is when the child recognizes and honors his Father's authority, i.e. His authority to give commands to him (setting the standards whereby he is to think and act) and to chasten him when he disobeys—where the Father has the authority to cast him out, with wrath, if he disrespects His office of authority, i.e. if he refuses to accept chastening from his Father for doing wrong. The "old" world order is initiated and sustained when the child accepts the standards of a higher authority than his own carnal nature, i.e. seeking to please Him in all things, subjecting himself to the lessons learned in the "past," living in the "present" and hoping in a "future" according to His Father's will. Although our earthly fathers' are not perfect, their office of authority, under God, is. It is a world where the preaching and teaching of truth and facts by his Father is accepted "as given," i.e. by faith, with the truth and facts being applied "as given" as well, making truth and facts 'unchangeable.' While our knowledge of the laws of nature (which are established by God) might change, i.e. regarding our understanding of them, the understanding of right and wrong behavior in the use of them (as established by the Father) does not change. It is a world where sin is the child's disobedience to his Father.
"For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous." Romans 5:19
"But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ." Galatians 4:4-7
"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not." 1 John 3:1
"And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others." Ephesians 2:1-3
"If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them." Colossians 3:1-7
The "old" world order is where a "guilty conscience" restrains the child's "human nature," i.e. his "feelings" and "thoughts," i.e. his deceitful and wicked heart, making the child accountable to an authority higher than his own carnal nature, i.e. dependent upon the approval of his Father. It is the "guilty conscience" which makes the child an individual—as every soul will stand before God, being answerable for his personal thoughts and actions, so the child stands before his father under the same condition. It is a world where the child is 'guided' by his Father's Words, 'purposed' in doing them according to his Father's will. It is a world built upon Hebrews 12:5-11 (the Father's authority) and Romans 7:14-25 (the "guilty conscience" for disobedience).
The "old" world order is "top-down" order where the Father's authority (thesis) restrains the child's carnal nature (antithesis), i.e. with the Father directing his child steps, i.e. his thoughts and actions in the way he should go, knowing that he would not go that way (the way of righteousness) if left to himself. "O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23 "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 "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55: 7-9 It is a world in the need of a savior to 'redeem' it from the Father's wrath (for having gone the way of unrighteousness), 'reconciling' it to the Father (imputing His own righteousness upon those of faith in Him).
Because it is a world that recognizes, respects, and honors the Father's authority, it can hear the gospel message of Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God, whose message is "I want you to meet my Father." "I want you to know my Father's love." Without 'reconciliation' to the Father there is no gospel message, only the so called "gospel" message the "new" world order, i.e. a "gospel" message of 'redemption' from the Father's authority (the children, through dialectic 'reasoning,' ''justifying' themselves, 'reconciling' themselves back to their carnal nature, i.e. "enjoying" the pleasures of this life only, 'liberating' themselves from their Father's authority, i.e. going the way of eternal death). "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." John 3:16-18
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." John 5:24
"I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." "For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak." John 5:30 and John 12: 49, 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." "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven." "For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." "After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen." Matthew 7:21, 10:32, 12:50, 23:9, 6:9-13
"And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins." "As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." John 8:23, 24; 15: 9-14
"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? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness." Romans 8:16-18
"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
"For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life." Titus 3:3-7
The "new" world order is when the children no longer recognize and honour their Father's authority, i.e. refusing to accept His commands (His setting the standards whereby they are to think and act), refusing to accept His chasten of them when they disobey his commands, turning His casting them out, with wrath, if they disrespect His office of authority, i.e. if they refuse to accept His chastening of them for doing wrong, into them annihilating or destroying Him (the dialectic process is not successful until no one can escape—there is no tolerance, mercy, or grace for those outside the dialectic system). It is when the children (now "children of disobedience") set the standards of right and wrong, good and evil for themselves, according to their carnal nature, seeking after pleasure, living for the 'moment.' It is a world where children 'discover' the truth of the day through the dialoguing of opinions, i.e. how they "feel" and what they "think" in the 'moment,' to a consensus (to a "feeling" of "oneness," i.e. depending upon the approval of children), where truth is subject to "human nature," ever changing according to the 'moment,' i.e. taken all things captive to the situation (instead of "to the obedience of Christ," i.e. to His Heavenly Father), thereby making truth and facts ever subject to 'change.' Accepting and applying the dialectic theory, that the "laws of nature are ever 'changing'" (evolving, relative), right and wrong, regarding behavior, is ever changing as well, makes the child subject to the "ever changing laws of nature" (making all children materialistic, i.e. subject to the material world of "sense perception," i.e. therefore all children must to be seducible, deceivable, and manipulatable, i.e. adaptable to 'change,' if they are to be of worth or of value in the ever 'changing' world—being no longer able to hear the truth through the preaching and teaching of it they can only 'discover' it through the dialoguing of their opinions, making all "truth" subject to their carnal nature). It is a world where "sin" is made manifest when the child, in obedience to his Father, is in disobedience to the children.
"Sin is the estrangement of man from man." "Humanism asserts that the test of human conduct must be found in human experience; concern for man replaces concern about pleasing God." "Humanism elevates man to the rank of God. Tillich's message is that God is man, mankind, humanity." "Tillichian salvation is a symbol, a symbol for becoming ultimately concerned about humanity [the relationship between the children negates the relationship between fathers and their children]―salvation in an 'eternal' present." "The answer to man's predicament lies in the realization by individual man, that all men are essentially one and that the one is God. This self-realization is a 'return' to union: potential becomes actual." (Leonard Wheat, Paul Tillich's Dialectical Humanism: Unmasking the God above God)
"Alienation is the experience of 'estrangement' (Verfremdung) from others, . . ." "Alienation has a long history. Its most radical sense already appears in the biblical expulsion from Eden." "Alienation, according to Feuerbach, derives from the externalization (Entausserung) of human powers ... God. . ." "God is thus the anthropological source of alienation . . ." "Alienation will continue so long as the subject engages in an externalization (Entausserung) of his or her subjectivity." (Stephen Eric Bronner, Of Critical Theory and its Theorists)
"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;" "I wagered my intellectual life on the idea of finding in Freud what was missing in Marx." "... 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 [by redefining sin as being the "repression" of "human nature," sin is negated as long as man does that which is "normal," i.e. sin's, i.e. disobeys his Father, i.e. "questions authority"]." "... a Marxist mode of Freudian analysis.... 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." (Mike Conner in response to Norman O. Brown's book Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History; Mike Connor, Apocalypse Now)
"We are proud that in his conduct of life man has become free from external authorities, which tell him what to do and what not to do." "Man is free from all ties binding him to spiritual authorities, but this very freedom leaves him alone and anxious, overwhelms him with a feeling of his own individual insignificance and powerlessness." [Fromm believed that man could] "not take the last logical step, to give up 'God' and to establish a concept of man as a being who is alone in the world, but who can feel at home in it if he achieves union with his fellow man and with nature." (Erick Fromm, Escape from Freedom)
The "new" world order is 'driven' by "human nature," i.e. the child's "natural inclination" to be-at-one with the world (sensing, identifying, attaining, and controlling a gratifying object in the environment) in pleasure in the 'moment,' i.e. a world 'driven' by the child's deceitful and wicked heart (equating the sensation of pleasure as being the standard for "good" and the sensation of pain to "evil"), 'purposed' in 'liberating' and 'actualizing' "the child within," i.e. having to negate the Father's authority (and the "guilty conscience" which restains it) to do so. It is a world build upon the use of Genesis 3:1-6. ('self-justification,' i.e. 'justifying' the child's unrighteous thoughts and unrighteous actions, i.e. establishing right and wrong according to his own carnal nature), negating Romans 7:14-25 (the "guilty conscience"), negating Hebrews 12:5-11 (the Father's authority which engenders the "guilty conscience" which keeps the Father's authority in place). It is a world of "equality," where the children (through their use of dialectic 'reasoning,' which makes the child's' "feelings" and "thoughts" equal with his Father's authority, which negates the "guilty conscience," i.e. searing his conscience, called it a "super-ego" instead—the "super-ego" is "the voice of the village" in the child's mind replacing, i.e. negating the voice of his Father) are united as "one" (in synthesis) in the social action (praxis) of collectively negating their Father's authority (antithesis) which restrains their " human nature" (thesis), thereby creating a "new" world order out of their own image.
The "new" world orders is built upon Synthesis, i.e. the children united as "one," thinking and acting according to "human nature" only. Without Synthesis, Antithesis (the Father's authority) remains in place. Thesis = "human nature," Antithesis = the Father's restraint of "human nature," separating the child from his love of the world by "forcing" him to love his Father instead (what Freud called a "substitute gratification," i.e. where the Father's authority makes the child subject to a world which is not of his own nature). Synthesis = the child reunited with his "human nature," where, through his use of dialectic 'reasoning' (through self 'justification'), all children are united in 'justifying' "human nature" over and against their Father's authority. It is a world where the Heresiarchal Paradigm of 'change' (the Proletariat), i.e. where the sensuous nature of the child is ever 'changing' in its relationship with the ever 'changing' world, in pleasure, in the 'moment,' establishes itself through negating the Patriarchal Paradigm of ' unchangingness' (the Bourgeoisie), i.e. negating the righteousness of the Father (that is, the system of righteousness of the earthly father, for only God is righteous in and of Himself) who establishes laws and chastens his children when they disobey, pouring out His wrath upon those who question, challenge, or circumvent His authority. It is a world where the child's "Why?" (stated in response to his Father's "Can not") must be responded to by the Father through dialogue, negating the Fathers' command and His "Because I said so," i.e. negating His office of authority in the process. It is a world where, when the child's "ought" is 'liberated' in the "light" (enlightenment) of dialectic "thought" (in self 'justification'), the Father's "Not" (His "Can not," "Must not," "Thou shalt not," "It is written") is negated, i.e. is no longer "relevant" to the 'changing' times. "The ideas of the Enlightenment taught man that he could trust his own reason [making "himself," i.e. "human nature" 'justified' in his own eyes] as a guide to establishing valid ethical norms and that he could rely on himself, needing neither revelation [the Word of God telling him how to think and act] nor that authority of the church [the only begotten Son of God showing him how to think and act] in order to know good and evil." (Stephen Eric Bronner, Of Critical Theory and its Theorists)
The "new" world order is a world of inductive 'reasoning,' where only that information which is "appropriate" to the social agenda (is of "sensuous need" and "sense perception," i.e. of "sense experience" which is "only of Nature," Karl Marx) is considered 'rational' and therefore 'relevant' to the 'moment,' with all other information (of deductive 'reasoning') which restrains, inhibits, or is hostel towards the social agenda, i.e. restraining "human nature," being considered "inappropriate information" or 'irrational' and therefore 'irrelevant' to the 'moment.' The "positive" in this case would be the child, the "negative" the Father's authority restraining the child. Therefore it is the objective of the "positive" (all the children united as "one") to negate the "negative" (the Father's authority) in order to negate the "guilty conscience." In dialectic terms this is what is called "negation of negation" (getting the Father's authority, i.e. the "guilty conscience" out of the child, i.e. out of his thoughts and his actions, referred to as "theory and practice"). In the "new" world order, unless the Father (and anyone who supports Him) negates His office of authority, He (and those who support Him) will be found guilty of a "hate crime" and be negated in the name of love, i.e. love for the child and his carnal nature. "Could there be, indeed, any conservative response to leftwing aggression that the Left would not condemn as hate, excepting immediate unconditional surrender? The answer is no: since anything less than surrender would amount to resistance, and resistance to the Left, according to the leftist dialectic, is simply another manifestation of hate. (This, of course, is not logic; it is ideological. That is to say, it is extralogic. As such, it is unanswerable.)" (Chilton Williamson Jr., What's Wrong With The World)
The "new" world order is built upon the dialectic 'reasoning' of Hegel, Marx, and Freud fame. It all has to do with the Father's authority, i.e. how to negate it in the thoughts and actions of the children of the world (in "theory and practice") so that they can become "like God himself" (without Godly restraint), united upon the foundation of carnal pleasures, with pleasure ("enjoyment," or as Hegel wrote in in German "Lust") being the 'drive' and the 'purpose' for all things, i.e. with carnal pleasure, "enjoyment," "lust" (for all) being the highest "good":
Norman O. Brown wrote: "Freud and 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." "Our repressed desires are the desires we had unrepressed, in childhood; and they are sexual desires." "Psychoanalysis declares the fundamental bisexual character [the abomination] of human nature [unrestrained by the Father's authority];" "The new guilt complex appears to be historically connected with the rise of patriarchal religion (for the Western development the Hebrews are decisive)." "The guilty conscience is formed in childhood by the incorporation of the parents and the wish to be father of oneself." (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)
Abraham Maslow wrote: "A patriarchal culture [where the Father's authority rules] is an argument against the higher possibilities of human nature, of social actualization" (Abraham H. Maslow, Maslow on Management)
Theodor Adorno wrote: "God is conceived more directly after a parental image and thus as a source of support and as a guiding and sometimes punishing authority." "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 [how to create the "new" world order out of the "old" world order without loosing it to an aberration, where the "new" world order (socialism) is structured after the "old" world order (with a "top-down" Father's authority), i.e. how to create socialist globalism (Totalitarianism) out of "authoritarianism" (Nationalism) without loosing it, in the process of 'change,' to, socialist nationalism (Fascism). Therefore the dialectic based idea of 'changing' the family structure from "authoritarianism" (focusing on the Father) to socialism (focusing on the children) is key to the process of 'change,' i.e. the Father's authority over the home being equated to "potential Fascism"—as Wilhelm Reich wrote: "The authoritarian family becomes the factory in which the state's structure and ideology are molded." (Wilhelm Reich, The Mass Psychology of Fascism) Without 'changing' "the authoritarian family" "structure and ideology," Fascism will ensue as the Globalist attempt to take over]." "It would then be more understandable why the German family, with its long history of authoritarian, threatening father figures, could become susceptible to a fascist ideology." [This has been proven false in that all forms of socialism (national and global) must negate the Father's authority (the Father's authority being falsely correlated to prejudice, i.e. to racism) in order to control the people (prejudice the public mind against the autonomous, i.e. "anti-socialist" Father figure). The concern was that the Fathers (pl.) might turn to the government to protect them and their families, land, and business' from global socialism, giving the government unlimited power, leading to national socialism with a Father figure at the top controlling "the people." While global socialism leads to "the children of disobedience" (the vanguard party, i.e. the facilitators of 'change') at the top, the "new" world order is a combination of both the national and global under one roof (public-private partnership without Godly restraint), i.e. with the use of social-psychology (Marx and Freud—Transformational Marxism) to pull it off, i.e. both united as one in negating the Father's authority.] "The impact of Sigmund Freud's work on modern culture [was] the connection between the suppression of children (both within the home and outside) [and] the psychological dynamics of the life of the child and the adult alike." "Social environmental forces must be used to change the parents behavior toward the child [breaking down the Father's authority in the home so that 'change,' i.e. socialism can take place—the idea being, if you don't weaken the traditional family structure as you take the nation into socialism, Fascism will ensue]." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality) Note: All public and private teachers are certified on (as well as all public and private schools are accredited on) Blooms' Taxonomies, which are based upon Adorno's works. 'Changing' the classroom experience from the teacher's preaching and teaching truth to the students, to be learned and applied "as given," to the teachers and students in partnership, i.e. through the dialoguing of their opinions 'discovering' the "truth" together, will do it, i.e. produce a world of 'change,' negating the Father's authority.
Karl Marx wrote: "Once the earthly family [the earthly father's authority] is discovered to be the secret of the heavenly family [the Heavenly Father's authority], the former must be destroyed [annihilated] in theory and in practice [the Father's authority must be negated in the child's personal thoughts and in his socialist actions through the dialoging of opinions]." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis # 4)
Sigmund Freud wrote: "'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 functions with a father's authority in the home, with the family now dialoging opinions to 'discover' what is right and what is wrong behavior for the 'moment']." (Sigmund Freud quoted in Herbert Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: A philosophical inquiry into Freud)
George Hegel wrote: "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 [when the child's "natural inclination" to become at-one-with the world in pleasure in the 'moment' is 'liberated' from his Father's authority, i.e. when his Father no longer has authority to make "human nature" subject to His will, i.e. "repressing" it, the child ("human nature" unrestrained by righteousness) becomes the 'drive' of and the 'purpose' for life]." (George Hegel, System of Ethical Life)
Warren Bennis wrote: "In order to effect rapid change, . . . [one] must mount a vigorous attack on the family lest the traditions of present generations be preserved. It is necessary, in other words, artificially to create an experiential chasm between parents and children—to insulate the children in order that they can more easily be indoctrinated with new ideas. If one wishes to mold children in order to achieve some future goal, one must begin to view them as superior. One must teach them not to respect their tradition-bound elders, who are tied to the past and know only what is irrelevant." (Warren Bennis, The Temporary Society)
George Hegel wrote: "On account of the absolute and natural oneness of the husband, the wife, and the child [in their commonality of "human nature"], where there is no antithesis of person to person or of subject to object [there is no "top-down" Father's authority], the surplus is not the property of one of them [there is no private as in family, property, business, etc.], since their indifference is not a formal or a legal one." (George Hegel, System of Ethical Life)
Jean-Jacques Rousseau wrote: "The first man who, having fenced in a piece of land, said 'This is mine,' and found people naive enough to believe him, that man was the true founder of civil society. From how many crimes, wars, and murders, from how many horrors and misfortunes might not any one have saved mankind, by pulling up the stakes, or filling up the ditch, and crying to his fellows: Beware of listening to this impostor; you are undone if you once forget that the fruits of the earth belong to us all, and the earth itself to nobody." (Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Discourse on Inequality) This is socialism which is anathema to the creator of the world: "For the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof." 1 Corinthians 10:26
Warren Bennis wrote: "Any non-family-based collectivity that intervenes between parent and child and attempts to regulate and modify the parent-child relationship will have a democratizing [destructive] impact on that relationship." "...any intervention between parent and child tend to produce familial democracy [destroys the Father's authority] regardless of its intent." "The consequences of family democratization take a long time to make themselves felt–but it would be difficult to reverse the process once begun [once the children have (once democracy, i.e. the tyranny of the masses has) gained a foothold over their Father's authority (over civil society) "it would be difficult" for the Father (for civil society) to "reverse the process"]." "… once the parent can in any way imagine his own orientation to be a possible liability to the child in the world approaching … once uncertainty is created in the parent how best to prepare the child for the future, the authoritarian family is moribund, regardless of whatever countermeasures may be taken." "The state, by its very interference in the life of its citizens, must necessarily undermine a parental authority which it attempts to restore." (Warren Bennis, The Temporary Society)
The Constitution, with its Bill of Rights, was written in a way so as to limit the power of government (from the federal to the local), separating the legislative, executive, and judiciary branches so that the Father could have them all united in himself instead, under God, training up the next generation of citizens with a conscience (engendering individualism), doing that which the "non-family-based collative" seeks to negate, i.e. individualism, instead uniting all branches under departments of public-private partnership, i.e. facilitating meetings engendering consensus, i.e. common-ism meetings, known in the past as "soviets"). Karl Marx wrote: "It is not individualism that fulfills the individual, on the contrary it destroys him. Society [socialism] is the necessary framework through which freedom and individuality are made realities." Max Horkheimer admitted that: "Protestantism ["the priesthood of all believers," individual believers seeking and serving the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ, doing their best as unto the Lord, openly preaching and teaching the truth in the public domain with love, authority, and clarity (without the fear of "What is going to happen to me?")] was the strongest force in the extension of cold rational individualism." (Max Horkheimer, Vernunft and Selbsterhaltung, as quoted in Martin Jay, The Dialectical Imagination: The History of the Frankfurt School and the Institute of Social Research 1923-1950)
Because it is a world that is built upon dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e. creating a "gospel" message out of it's own image, i.e. determining right and wrong, good and evil according to the child's nature, "lusting" after the pleasures of the 'moment,' it can not recognize the Father's authority and therefore can not understand the gospel message of Jesus Christ, 'redeeming' the world from His Father's wrath, 'reconciling' it to His Father. It is a world which instead is 'redeeming' itself from the Father's authority, 'reconciling' itself back to the world only. It is a world of Antichrist, i.e. following after a Fatherless savior, the devil. It is a world of abomination, i.e. a world built upon the opinions of carnal children, i.e. "the children of disobedience" dialoguing (how they "feel" and what they "think" in the given 'moment') to a consensus that they are 'justified' ('righteous') in and of themselves. Needing neither God to guide them or His Son to save them they have instead establishing themselves as God. As witnessed by their own writings: "In the process of history man gives birth to himself. He becomes what he potentially is, and he attains what the serpent—the symbol of wisdom and rebellion—promised, and what the patriarchal, jealous God of Adam did not wish: that man would become like God himself." (Erick Fromm, You Shall Be As Gods) "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.'" (Sigmund Freud in Herbert Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: A philosophical inquiry into Freud)
"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 16:5 "Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil." Proverbs 16:5-6
"And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable." "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:4-5, 12
"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 "But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death." "Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts." James 1:14-15; 4:2, 3
"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 [i.e. to the opinions of men]." 2 Timothy 4:3, 4
"But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." Matthew 12:36, 37
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes." Romans 3:10-18
"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him." 2 Corinthians 11:3-4
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 10:3-6
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. Romans 8:5-10
"A Dialogue is essentially a conversation between equals." "A key difference between a dialogue and an ordinary discussion is that, within the latter people usually hold relatively fixed positions and argue in favour of their views as they try to convince others to change. At best this may produce agreement or compromise, but it does not give rise to anything creative." "The purpose of dialogue is to reveal the incoherence in our thought ... genuine and creative collective consciousness." "What is essential here [in the consensus process] is the presence of the spirit of dialogue, which is in short, the ability to hold many points of view in suspension, along with a primary interest in the creation of common meaning." (Bohm and Peat, Science, Order, and Creativity) Discussion keeps the Father's office of authority in place, dialogue negates it. It is why a child asks his father "Why?" when he tells him to do something he does not want to do (or not to do something he wants to do), to get the Father into dialogue. The Father's "Because I said so" brings both discussion and dialogue to a close, engendering the rebellious child's "Well, I ought to be able to ...." It is upon this ground, i.e. the rebellious child's "ought" (engendering dialogue) that the "new" world order is built, 'liberating' all children from their Father's authority in the praxis of consensus, i.e. in the environment which dialogues "oughtiness," i.e. where the issue of sin (the wickedness of deceitfulness of the child's heart) never comes up. (Abraham Maslow, The Farther Reaches of Human Nature).
