The Liberal Mind.
"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
This explains the attitude of 'liberals,' acting as spoiled, unthankful, hateful children , i.e., children of disobedience when confronted with or restrained by 'conservative' principles, i.e., the father's/Father's authority (Hebrews 12:5-11), manifesting their love of pleasure (love of the world, including the approval of men for doing "good," making them "feel good," i.e., "right" in their own eyes) and their hate of restraint (hate of the father's/Father's authority). They do what they can to get rid of the father's/Father's authority so they (as a "big brother") can rule the world instead—believing that everyone is just like them, i.e., a child of disobedience (just not knowing it yet, i.e., still in "denial"), needing to be converted or else be silenced and/or removed. As children, in adult bodies, they reject restraint, perceiving anyone who reproves them, gets in their way, or exposes them as being "irrational" or "unreasonable," and therefore "irrelevant," needing to be removed (silenced) for the sake of "the people."
"In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other [through the praxis of dialogue], 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)
Our carnal nature of talking to our "self" about what we want in the 'moment' and our dissatisfaction (grumbling within) regarding what or who is preventing us from having it, i.e., 'justifying' our "self," makes us subject to the world, even when we are doing "good" for others. It is this murmuring (dialogue) within us which makes us subjects of the 'liberal' mind, with us deviating from what is right in order to satisfy our carnal "feelings," i.e., our carnal desires of the 'moment' (covetousness), which "seem to be" "good" or "right" in our own eyes in the 'moment'—which makes us subject to the seduction, deception, and manipulation of the facilitator of 'change,' who by encouraging us to evaluate the situation from our own "feelings," i.e., our "sensuous needs" and "sense perception" of the 'moment' or situation (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3), "helps" us 'justify' our "self" before others (affirmation), 'liberating' us from having a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning. By being drawn into dialogue, i.e., the liberal mind (which we are already doing internally by nature), we make manifest to others that which we are already desiring in the flesh, as well as our dissatisfaction with authority for getting in our way, making us sitting ducks to those wanting a the world of 'change,' a world subject to "the peoples" "self interests" of the 'moment,' which are ever subject to 'change' (making them subject to anyone manipulating the situation or information of the 'moment'). If we do not humble, deny, die to our "self" daily and willingly endure the rejection of others (which we by nature so much desire, their approval of us that is, along with their approving of us having or doing what we desire—which is actually affirmation, i.e., with others approving our carnal desires, i.e., our carnal nature thus affirming their "self," i.e., their carnal nature, which God does not affirm, he only approves of what we are doing when we are doing His will; we can only be affirmed by the world and affirm the world) we can not follow the Lord, doing His Heavenly Father's will as He directs, overcoming, in Him, the temptations which come our way (within and without) in this life. "It is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23
The hallmark of philosophy, socialism (all forms of socialism from Common-ism to Fascism), psychology, anthropology, etc., i.e., "group psychotherapy," i.e., anyone who approves (affirms) the carnal nature of men (which began in the garden in Eden, with the "help" of the first facilitator of 'change', i.e., the first seducer, deceiver, and manipulator of mankind—Genesis 3:1-6), is the praxis of someone coming between the father/Father and his/His children, 'liberating' them from his/His authority by "encouraging" them to dialogue their opinions to a consensus (the same system as a soviet which is used to 'change' how participants think, 'creating' laws which enforce socialism aka common-ism, i.e., "human nature" over and therefore against individualism, under the father's/Father's authority), 'justifying' (affirming) their "self" before one another, washing their brain of the father's/Father's authority, turning them against the father/Father so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity, i.e., so they can be "of and for self," i.e., of and for their carnal nature and the world which stimulates it, doing wrong, disobeying, sinning without having a guilty conscience, seeing no evil in their deceitful and wicked ways, i.e., in their unconscionable and abominable deeds (praxis), even doing so in the "name of the Lord," therefore—seeing no wrong in themselves—seeing no need to repent, ask for forgiveness, and be saved (Romans 7:14-25)—blaming someone else (character assassination), the situation (insufficient support from others, i.e., others failing them), or "misunderstanding" (others not communicating correctly with them) when caught or exposed.
The role of the facilitator of 'change' is to pre-select the "Legos" that are put in the box (the "appropriate information") so the children can only build the object he wants built. When only the children's "feelings" of the 'moment' (in the 'light' of the given situation), that which is "positive,' i.e., their opinion guides them in making decisions, i.e., in deciding right from wrong—excluding their parent's or God's commands, rules, facts, and truth (which divides them from one another, i.e., which is "negative")—the only outcome will be their carnal nature, 'liberated' from parental and/or Godly restraint, which makes them one and the same, i.e., of and for the world only, hating parental and/or Godly restraint, calling their parent's and/or God (or anyone preaching and teaching commands, rules, facts, and truth to be accepted by faith and obeyed) hateful for getting in their way, i.e., for making them "feel" bad, i.e., for making them "feel" guilty for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning—not seeing their hate of the father's/Father's authority as being what it is, hate itself. While the father hates what the child does when he does wrong, he loves the child, chastening him that they might learn to do right and not wrong, forgiving him when he repents and asks for forgiveness (showing him mercy and grace), the child on the other hand hates the father when the father gets in the way of his "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'—in that 'moment' he would kill the father if he could. Georg Hegel, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud all had this in mind.
"There are many stories of the conflict and tension that these new practices are producing between parents and children." (David Krathwohl, Benjamin S. Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 2: Affective Domain) This from the books all teachers are certified and schools are accredited by today, referred to as "Bloom's Taxonomies," 'changing' how teachers (and students) communicate with one another in the classroom—away from the teachers preaching commands and rules to be obeyed as given and teaching facts and truth to be accepted as is (which is "negative" to the child's carnal nature, i.e., "human nature"), to the teachers "encouraging" students to dialogue their opinions (being "positive") to a consensus (the "group grade" classroom), making teachers therapists, i.e., counselors, i.e., social-ist engineers, i.e., facilitators of 'change,' i.e., 'change' agents, 'changing' traditional minded students into socialists—defying and/or attacking authority when it gets in their way.
"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure 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]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 If you start with the heart of the child, i.e., dialogue, you can only end up with a world of deceitfulness and wickedness, i.e., all that is of the world, hating the father's/Father's authority.
The solution is simple to the 'liberal'—to those hating authority (equating authority to Fascism). By creating a classroom environment where children can dialogue their opinions (reflecting their desire for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, i.e., their "self interest" and their dissatisfaction with restraint), to a consensus (to affirmation), resulting in their challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking their parent's authority when they get home, parent's are pressured into dialoguing their opinions to a consensus with their children, negating their office of authority in the process—their participation (abduction of their authority in order to dialogue with their children in an effort to "build relationship" with them establishing their "feelings," i.e., their desire for relationship with their children, i.e., affirmation over and therefore against "doing right and not wrong") accomplishes the deed. In this way, those hating the father's/Father's authority are 'justified' in accusing anyone supporting the father's/Father's authority, i.e., those being "negative," i.e., inhibiting or blocking their carnal nature (desires of the 'moment') as being hateful, thereby 'justifying' their passing laws against hate, i.e., against the father's/Father's authority; through tax dollars and government agencies forcing all, including those supporting the father's/Father's authority, into support them and their hatred toward authority, calling it "freedom of expression and speech." The very praxis of dialogue engenders hate, i.e., hatred toward the father's/Father's authority, i.e., toward restraint, i.e., toward "Because I said so," toward "It is written," which cuts off dialogue. If you reject (strike out against) the father's/Father's chastening of you for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, you are a sulking, pouting, spoiled, unthankful, hateful child of disobedience, who God calls a "bastard," i.e., a 'liberal,' thinking that everyone owes you a favor, that no one has the "right" to 'judge' you for your deceitful and wicked heart, that they should be taking care of you and worshiping you instead.
"Because that, when they knew God [the creation bearing witness of Him, i.e., of His power and greatness, along with man's ability to be in awe (aware) of it, i.e., in awe (aware) of His works and therefore in awe (aware) of Him], they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools," "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;" "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 1:21, 22, 28, 32
In the 'liberal's' world of "oughtiness," a world of their "imagination," i.e., a world subject to their heart's carnal desires of the 'moment' they are preparing the world for judgment, as in the day's of Noah. "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)
"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 While you, by nature, love pleasure and hate restraint the father/Father loves you, hating your deceitful and wicked ways, chastening you that you might learn to do right, obey, and not sin, i.e., repent and receive his blessing, which includes eternal life.
"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. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." John 3:16-19
The question is are you a 'liberal,' i.e., a phosophobe (fearful of the light), i.e., a Marxist?
"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
