“Or maybe you’ve watched a friend make an ill-advised purchasing decision. It’s amazing how we can have such clear insight into the poor choices of our friends and family members. If you’re connected to other people, there’s a good chance somebody has equally clear insight into implications of the decisions you’re faced with. The only way to benefit from their clear thinking–the only way to avoid the deceitfulness of sin–is to invite their input…
We must understand that solid commitments and deep convictions just aren’t enough… Who, outside of your family, has permission to talk to you and challenge you, if need be, about the things going on in your life? Who’s close enough to warn you if you begin to drift?”
(Community: Your pathway to progress, pp. 33, 34. North Point Ministries, 2008)
Notice the irony implicit in the use of these words…the ones I’ve put into bold print above: “invite”, “permission”.
Do you see it?
Not yet? Okay, let me give you another hint.
“–the only way to avoid the deceitfulness of sin–is to invite their input.”
Do you see it now?
Well, certainly some of you do. For those of you who do not, don’t feel bad. It’s really not a measure of your perceptive capabilities, nor your intellect. It’s more a measure of how these spiritual Marxists excel at deception, which is the modern currency with which they buy their followers. It has taken me years to develop my skills at spotting the fly in the ointment from a mile away, and your erudition will develop as well, in due time. And once you see it…well, you will not be able to un-see it. You will be called a skeptic, a doubter, a conspiracy theorist, overreacting, presumptive, and paranoid. But what you’ll really be is smart. What you’ll really be is someone who they can no longer exploit in service to there own interminable worldly appetites.
Notice the incongruent and contradictory relationship between a metaphysic which declares that you are, at the very fundamental root of your nature–your being, your existential seed–utterly insufficient to existence to the point where if you are not fully integrated into the Christian Marxist hive (the “church”) you can make no claim to existence at all, nor to the idea that you must “invite” or “give permission” to the collective (“the body”; “the nation”, the “race”, the “tribe”, the “people”, the “workers”…but in this case, specifically, the divine proxy known as the “small group”, which answers directly to the North Point Ministry autocracy known as the Pastorate, ruled by the Protestant Pope, the “Senior Pastor”).
Understand that you cannot make a claim that any one in possession of a “sinful nature”, which is the full sum and substance of his existence, has any natural right to invite people who MUST intervene in order to compel integration to the the group for that person’s “own good” (remember, according to the text I quoted, other people (the collective) inserting themselves into your life is the ONLY way to avoid the deceitfulness of sin).
Here’s a thought: In order for one to give permission to the group to perform the daily ritual of intervention one must possess the inherent intellectual and psychological faculties necessary to determine truth from fiction, and good from evil. But notice also how impossible this must be for someone whose nature is TOTALLY Depraved. Who functions, above all else, always and entirely according to a “sin nature” which is utterly destructive to the individual, to the point where any rational “existence” by such an entirely debauched individual is fully impossible.
You see, since your depravity is infinite and absolute, there is no way to define SELF as somehow distinct from it. This being the case, there can be no one who is capable of of the kind of intellectual and psychological attributes necessary to discern reality enough in order to make an invitation or to give permission to anything, or anyone, regarding any doctrine whatsoever. Since you are entirely a function of your depravity, you must be blind to whatever “benevolent” reality North Point Ministries is so arrogantly and deceptively and so fucking blithely asking you to choose to “invite” into your life. And this is because you, being entirely a function of your absolute depravity, cannot be distinct from it. Which means there is no way for you to discern reality at all, in order to make a value judgement concerning which group you “invite” to speak to you, and to ensure your safe travels upon the road of righteousness…a road which you must inevitably miss unless you “invite” the collective’s leadership to lead (force) you upon it. But to be able to invite–to be able to give permission–is to be able to see the road to salvation for yourself. But it is clear by the appeals to the metaphysic of man’s total depravity that this is simply not possible. According to the doctrine of Total Depravity, and the adherence to the idea of the abject Fall of Man, and the categorical acceptance of man’s Original Sin which thus MUST determine man to self-destruction in the form of infinite and interminable torment in hell fire, man is no more inherently capable of seeing the road to salvation than he is of flying to the moon by flapping his arms. In which case to “invite” the Small Group to come along and assist him in traversing it is obviously and demonstrably impossible.
Make no mistake then, the words “invite” and “permission” are simply there as tools used by these tyrants to diffuse skepticism. To deceive people into thinking that there is some kind of cooperation being effected here. This is the kind of conscious and intentional deception these evil institutions use to coerce otherwise intelligent men and women into surrendering the entirety of their lives and resources to the wolves who in past centuries and in past societies would have skipped the sophism and propaganda altogether and simply used threats of violence to compel people into the pews, and murdered those who refused or dissented.
“To invite their input”.
Listen, diplomatic terms like “invite” imply that one by natural right has full possession of his life and property. Indeed, it implies that the only means by which anyone can legitimately seek to influence you–and the purposes and promises and objectives you have set for yourself by your own ideas and your own volition as an autonomous, fully sentient and fully competent agent–is to seek your permission; to entreat your invitation. And this not by sophism or by deceit, but by appealing to your sense of Self…that is, by appealing to the idea that what they are proposing is that which brings value to the realization of your own existence, in a way which ultimately benefits YOU. And by YOU–by Self–I mean one who is fully capable to his or her own existence, by nature, and thus possesses fully the means by which to discern fact from fiction, and therefore good from evil; one who employs reason as a means by which to promote the Self, which is the only rational context of existence, and that promoting Self, then, is the very definition of morality.
A casual examination of the doctrines of Protestant Orthodoxy reveals that this definition of Self utterly incompatible with the religion. There is simply no fucking way any professing Protestant in good standing can with a straight face describe man’s Self the way I have done so above. The metaphysic of man as an agent fully aware of himself, fully in possession of epistemological faculties resulting in a right and good discernment of truth, could not be further from the metaphysic of Christianity today, which makes no pretense of any notion of man which does not fully condemn him to abject self-annihilation to the point of rendering man fully non-existent even upon his birth, due to his categorical and singular fusion with the abstractions of “depravity”, “evil”, “fallen”, “insufficient”, “unable”, and “unholy”. In other words, the metaphysical presumptions endemic and categorical in Christianity today (and every day since Augustine, for that matter), which guide the entirety of the doctrinal cannon espoused in churches across the globe scream in bloodcurdling fashion a contradiction to the notion that anyone has any right, or any rational, psychological, or intellectual means, to “invite” or “give permission”.
I mean, the absurdity of it all makes one question whether or not he is awake or still in bed dreaming.
Nevertheless, this is what is touted. And this is what people accept as reasonable. This is what Christians pass off as “truth”.
God help us.
Look, it’s very simple. The church today all but announces with every worship song and in every sermon in every church in America that you have no motherfucking right to self ownership. And that the sum and substance of all evil is to be found in the presumption that man is somehow an actual sentient and fully capable agent, fully divested with and fully sufficient to self ownership and thus possesses the necessary right to his own life…to do with it what he or she pleases in whatever fashion he or she decides, and that since in the name of rational consistency, ALL men and women must have this very same natural right, there can be no such thing as the idea that rationally and morally working out one’s existence can somehow violate the right of another human being to manifest his or her own existence; and that this, and nothing else, is the rational means to both individual existence, and the co-existence of individuals with other individuals.
No. The church today will die, literally and figuratively, upon this hill: that existence is fully a function of a metaphysic contrary to self-ownership and the sufficiency to one’s own existence, and that without the FORCE (the violent coercion) by those men who don title’s such as “Minister” or “Pastor” or “Father” and appoint themselves as divine proxies and then proceed to demand that the laity make no practical distinction between proxy and Deity, there can be no such thing as a human race at all.
So know this:
When they say “invite”, they mean they will invite themselves.
When they say “permission”, they mean they will permit themselves.
They will help themselves to a full portion of your life and property, because that, by their own doctrine, is their divine right. And whatever you want? Whatever you decide on your own behalf?
