The Flesh - The Strength Of Sin

The strength of the dialectic is that participants merely take part in order to retain their own part in a group relationship. To resist is to be either excluded from the group or to exclude oneself from the process altogether.

The dialectic can not support the complete set of four balances without revealing its inconsistency; The strength of the flesh takes the place of thesis/antithesis with its inverses wrapping the machine of the lust of the flesh, (see the "lust of the flesh" page in the last section), those inverses being the unwinding pair of the lusts of the eyes. The final state is that when it is realised that the initial choice of wine at the table is now taken off the table and become oil, or that the oil initially at the table is now contradicted; the flesh takes the place of and masks the fourth dialectic - and the machine runs on a low gear.

The machine runs with the thrill of group participation and supplies the dopamine that overcomes the knowledge that deceit is being practiced. The impetus of the meeting and consensus reached in the group under the appearance of progress is what supplies the dopamine release, the machine of the flesh and lust of the eyes provides the running justification to the group consensus, the equivalence to "Well I felt we made real progress" or "The group really incorporated my ideas, I feel we had real fellowship".

What is in effect is the receipt of the mark of the beast: the "ring of truth" in the dialectic process is actually the spiritual identity of "Death" hiding behind the "balances" used (as it were the pale horse accumulating): So that "Death" stands ready to swamp every logical argument against the process, with doublespeak (or dragonspeak) to the exclusion of all such views from the room. The glazed over eyes of those being seduced by the process has switched the realisation that Death is in the room with the substitution of Hell. Their flesh provides the justification of the current "now-truth" on the basis of previous dopamine release and the willingness to participate in order for the low gear to supply more. All the while they put aside the endless inconsistency of the method and lack of spiritual validity in favour of the current group dynamic.

The machine of the flesh provides the pleasure of participation that should otherwise be employed to be avoiding the process as a cause of future discomfort under the judgement of God; Lack of knowledge has destroyed the Lord's people for the most part, except for the tiny majority.

The real strength of sin is in the mental somersaults that one may make dialectically to cover the inconsistency of one's paradigm. The sin itself is a relationship with pleasure, and the mind moves to justify itself dialectically rather than didactically. With the process of the lusts of the eyes and flesh with the "pride of life" - the attempt to justify ones carnal nature as the germ of the self, the essence of the soul as well as the "personality"of the individual is a synthetic position - the position that sin is the cause of the creator who made the machine rather than the fault of the sinner that loves the evil deeds of the flesh, because they themselves are evil.

The somersaults that may be made by the mind are in fact taking the fact of "sin" off the table whilst running the machine on a low gear; What is realised is the thesis and antithesis of the conflict between the desire to do well or to sin - and the resistance of the realisation that the choice not to sin is easily made when the machine is on high gear. All the while the machine runs tis process on low gear, protesting against the possible denial of its low-gear use; dopamine is required by the machine for low gear and the "flesh" protests the possibility it may lose a good source of fuel. Running on high gear is an easy alternative (that is hard to make the change to) without the comfort offered by the machine's designer then "well oiling" the machine.

Those mental somersaults have one initial choice of oil - the identity or unity that there was or is sin, and the six possible permutations of the remaining three balances and the then alternative choices of wine/oil are mental somersaults one may make that obfuscate the mind from the issue - the sin. It is easier to synthesize to some other choice of "wine" and switch the oil out underneath for one that justifies what was previously the antithesis (The desire to continue on "low gear").

The result is that the machine of the flesh takes the place of the intended 'oil' of the balances - rather than the oil of the spirit that ensures a good run on high gear. What has been synthesized is the thesis and antithesis of the fault of the sin made by the self and the desire to continue in low gear: The synthesis is the idea that the machine is the self and the running on low gear is justifiable because it was created in the intent that it run in low gear continually if necessary, to supply the dopamine requirement of the individual.

Surely the strength of sin is the resistance to the will of the creator - and that being properly oiled spiritually and comfortably cruising along in high gear is the natural state of the creature of God.
