John 8:44; Rev 12:9; The doctrine of how the lie becomes the public lie of public opinion part 3
In our study of how the lie becomes so pervasive that it becomes the public lie per Jesus' statement regarding satan the "father of lies" who deceives the entire world John 8:44; Rev 12:9;
Last time we noted that when evil politicians in government seize power through lies and deceit and govern with evil deceitful policies including socialism and communism they must use lies and deceit to control the people because their policies contradict the natural law of Divine Establishment truth.
In order to acquire and maintain their power the criminal politicians must use lies and deceit to suppress the truth.
Last time we noted that the Lenin the architect of the communist revolution in Russia defined "propaganda" as the reasoned use of historical and scientific arguments to indoctrinate the educated and enlightened and he defined "agitation" as the use of slogans, parables, and half-truths in order to exploit the grievances of the uneducated and the unreasonable (the mob).
Lenin regarded both strategies as absolutely essential to political victory so he twinned them with the term "agitprop."
Communist "Agitprop" is being fomented in our country today by the rioting of the "black lives matter" brown shirts and other communist agitators who are controlled by democrat politicians that occupy high positions in the executive branch of our federal government whose hidden agenda is to force change through civil conflict.
The communist agitators in the federal government are also using the special interests of very small minorities to bludgeon average citizens with evil judicial rulings under the guise of "equality."
In Germany it was communist "agitprop" and the failure of the feckless Weimar government to properly deal with the communist criminal mobs that lead to the rise of Adolph Hitler in the early 1930's.
If the communist brownshirt criminal mobs are not properly dealt with by the legitimate law enforcement function of federal, state and local governments very soon there will likely be a civilian counter response to the criminal agitators and their "agitprop" that may well duplicate what happened in Germany in the early 1930's.
Brainwashing occurs when people reject the truth and chose to believe the lies contained in the propaganda.
In order to change the way people think, the false teacher or evil politician will use the following procedure:
(1) Objective: get individuals, one by one, to believe the lie,
(2) Means: Communicate disinformation containing lies and half-truths
(3) Mechanics: the people choose to believe the lie and accept it as being true.
(4) Result: the people's thinking is changed.
When enough people believe the lies and half-truths then the lie becomes the public opinion and that is the public lie.
The principle is that propaganda is what they do to you when they lie to you but brainwashing is what you do to yourself when you believe their lies. Propaganda is an outside influence, brainwashing is an inside decision.
No one who refuses to be brainwashed can be brainwashed.
Those without a frame of reference that is programmed with truth from God's Word are vulnerable to the propagandist and, once under the spell of indoctrination, they will choose to believe the lies and brainwash themselves because of an inability to accurately discern and make good decisions regarding the information that is being presented.
Those with a frame of reference programmed with truth from God's Word cannot be brainwashed. They use the resident truth in their frame of reference to properly analyze the incoming data and use discernment to chose not to accept the lies so they do not change the way they think.
Those who stand for nothing will fall for anything. This is why truth is the sine que non of freedom and the lie is the sine que non of slavery.
One of the techniques used by the deceivers is to overload people with rapid change in order to create cognitive dissonance by get them off balance.
This is what the anti-Divine Establishment media and politicians are doing in our country today by making evil judicial rulings about homosexuality followed rapidly by more evil judicial rulings about so called transgender people.
The rapid change causes doctrineless people to become off balance so they do nothing and passively accept the changes because they are bewildered by all of the changes when they should be resisting the changes through every possible lawful means.
One of the major sources of disinformation that the satanic progressives deploy against Christians is the concept of "tolerance."
The deceivers lead with the statement that "tolerance is a virtue and that Christianity teaches tolerance. They then follow that with the accusation that only intolerant people refuse to recognize that homosexuality (or "sexual licentiousness") is a viable lifestyle.
Their assertion contains two false premises (lies) that they use to challenge the conscience of those who wants to do the right thing by honoring God's Word of truth.
False premise (lie) #1: "Tolerance is a virtue." By its precise definition, this is a lie:
The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language defines: Tolerance: The capacity for or practice of allowing or respecting the nature, beliefs, or behavior of others.
Tolerate: To recognize and respect, as the rights, opinions, or practices of others, whether agreeing with them or not.
It is not a virtue to respect the nature, beliefs, and behavior of others. The Bible requires the believer to reject, not "respect," the "nature, beliefs, or behavior" of others when they are in conflict with its absolute standards. 1Thes 5:21-22;
This passage tells believers to Examine, test or prove everything and then to hold to what is good and reject every form of evil.
The Greek word translated "examine" is the present active imperative of "dokimazo" that means to test or scrutinize or prove that something is actually worthy.
The Greek word translated "abstain" is "apecho" means to keep away from, abstain from, distance yourself from or separate from.
So the assertion that believers are to be tolerant of evil lifestyles including homosexuality or any other deviant lifestyle is a satanic lie that the progressives use to deceive untaught believers.
God's word tells believers to reject these practices.
We see that Jesus did not accept evil lifestyles in His mandate to the woman who was caught in adultery to "go and stop sinning." John 8:11; but He did not condemn her either.
In His first advent Jesus Christ did not come to condemn the world. He came to save it. John 3:17; We have the same mission to represent Jesus salvific work to the world as Jesus' ambassadors. 2Cor 5:18-21;
God's Word tells believers not to accept or tolerate the evil practices of those who are in the world but at the same time not condemn them. Satan invented the world and as such the world cannot be anything but evil because is it intrinsically evil.
The world is what it is and it cannot change or be changed but individuals within it can be extracted from it an saved from it by believing in Jesus Christ. Believing in the Word of truth extracts those who believe in Jesus from the world. John 17:15-20;
This explains why believers are commanded not to condemn anyone who is in the world but that does not mean that believers must accept or tolerate the evil practices of those who are in the world.
In fact God's word tells believers to avoid those who practice evil lifestyles. 2Thes 3:6;
