The Pride Of Life

What is left to describe the pride of life? We've pretty much hit the nail on the head so far; The pride of life would be the statement that this lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh together are as much a part of what we experientially consider to be our inner person, that we are inseparable from it: and that consequentially it is our way to salvation or no way and we aint budging!

We consider that this dopamine addiction is part of what drives our behaviour instead of our consciences logically overriding the knowledge of our carnality with the truth that we should be obedient to absolutes. What is pleasurable is not what is right, nor what is common in the environment that which is good.

We with our carnal sensuous nature are trapped in a box that states we have animal passions because we are animals, but that is not the case. We are made to be above the animals by God our creator - we do not get into heaven with the carnal nature intact: it must be overcome and removed. If God permits the purely carnal nature he would have to permit all sin - for it is natural to covet. God does not permit us to inherit His kingdom on the basis of our flesh and blood. Neither can struggling with a system of laws show that a man may improve his self - it already shows that he fails to do so alone.

When someone is in good standing with God he has crucified the flesh along with Christ, and the carnal nature is no longer important - it is itself irrelevant in its lusts next to the the need for God's approval. What really did it for me was the realisation that God's grace does not get supercharged in heaven, it is the same gentle breath of air to the soul that it will always be. We are taught that at the resurrection the just will have their carnal nature removed and the corruption made incorruptible. Those that have a sense of self that resides after the carnal nature is removed have already shown their willingness to repent appropriately - those that struggle can not. Those that don't want to know are already pleased to be carnal and have no desire to be anything else.

People including christians struggle with the sin and the OT legal system: I found that when I left the church and realised that this is the day - now is the hour of salvation, I started to understand that God was working in me according to my need, not to my standing in a church or my perseverance in it - I have never been better off than I have been outside of the church. God is not found in the church, and neither shall I be unless I am there to honour someone else whom deserves it.

Likewise there is a further pride of life that finds itself in the spiritually dead: The fourth dialectic in a series does not logically follow intact, but the machine of the lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh (and the pride of life) may take the place of that fourth dialectic that would otherwise logically fail. The number of ways to choose two items from four is six, and these opposites may "latch" or "lock on" to the thesis and antithesis of a triple dialectic latching to the inverses of the "lust of the eyes."

When one such "triple balance" appears to animate itself in a similar fashion to the senses; the fourth part (of men) constructed by the participating group's inward sensuous nature is such that the image created in place of the fourth dialectic ("Death" - often the position of the beast or government.) is better termed "Hell". (Note the capitalisations.) For it follows after it (Death).

The play of six possible thesis/antithesis pairs from the available four are each with two choices of "wine" or "oil" respectively, where oil are the facts as taken off the meeting room table and the wine is what preserves the relationship at the table. Each position for oil and wine of those two, synthesizes the thesis/antithesis pair in question; yet only one is excluded as oil - usually the fact rather than the agreement to be reached.

If something simply can not be ignored, it may appear as a fact (as in the process): if it takes the place of "wine" rather than oil. Yet satan knows to "hurt not the oil or the wine".
