God is allowing your sanity to be threatened (a life hallucination [see Why Is God Somewhat Stingy? for an explanation of life hallucination]) so that you will engage in the paradoxical drama (see our other articles on paradoxical drama; especially, Why Is God Somewhat Stingy?)…so that you will engage in the paradoxical drama of seeking something other than God to maintain your sanity.
Why is God unfaithful (inconsistent)? That is, why doesn’t God keep his word all of the time? Well, once again, we are dealing with paradoxical drama. You must read our earlier articles on this subject to be able to understand this article:
Note that God is not really unfaithful.
Now, why is God unfaithful?
So that we will engage in the paradoxical drama of putting material defenses above trusting God. Note that we did not say so that we do not trust God but rather that material defenses are to be given greater priority than faith in God.
Material defenses are money, food, clothing, shelter, guns, police, military, etc., etc.
Note that the logic behind this paradoxical drama is that, while unfaithfulness, per se (in itself), calls for a cessation of trust in God…since God is the only source of supply, we cannot cut ourselves off from him completely. Therefore, rather than cessation of faith in God, logic dictates a synthesis, subordination of faith in God.
You must read Why Is God Somewhat Stingy? first to be able to understand this article; especially, the concept of pardoxical drama. You may also read Why Does God Sometimes Make Our Faith Pointless? for some additional insight. Note that God does not really sometimes send unbearable torment.
Now, why does God sometimes send unbearable torment? First, the unbearability is unconsciously unreal, which is proven by the fact that we do not lose control of ourselves. So, why does God send the experience?
So that we will engage in the paradoxical drama of subordinating everything else in our lives to the work of eliminating the unbearable torment; that is, so that we put the elimination of the unbearable torment before every other task and responsibility.
You must read Why Is God Somewhat Stingy? first to be able to understand this article; especially, the concept of pardoxical drama. Note that God does not really sometimes make our faith pointless.
Now, why does God sometimes make our faith pointless?
So that we will engage in the paradoxical drama of acting without faith, which would be having faith but doing what you would do if you had no faith.
Now, we can hear the uproar in certain communities at the idea that God is stingy to some degree. Well, that is because of their ignorance of the divinely ordained complexity of the human experience.
Now, is God somewhat stingy? In terms of fact, no. In terms of apparent fact, for some people, yes. Okay. So what is apparent fact? Apparent fact is belief resulting from unrecognized life hallucination. What is life hallucination?
An hallucination that comprises (makes up) a period of one’s life. Such a period of one’s life could last for seconds or minutes or hours or days or weeks or months or years.
So, why does God send these painful life hallucinations? Of course, with some people it is because of sin. But, with other people, good and decent people, it has a different purpose. That purpose is:
What is paradoxical drama?
Paradoxical drama is acting as if, though not really the case, God is defective in some way. In this case, it is acting as if, though not really the case, God is somewhat stingy.
How do you know that God wants you to engage in this paradoxical drama? If this were not true, God would truly be somewhat stingy.
So, how do you act as if God is somewhat stingy?
You plan your life accordingly. You say to yourself, “In effect, though not really, God is not going to provide me with everything I need. Therefore, I must save some resources – money, time, energy, property, food, clothing, shelter, etc. – for future use.”
Masturbation is not one act. It is two acts performed at the same time. We call these acts “stations.” The stations are the:
- Action Station
- Experience Station
This is simply the physical activity involved in masturbation. We have no commandment of God about it. However, the Bible teaches that spiritual leaders should sometimes give their judgment about whether something is right or wrong. Our judgment is that the action station of masturbation is so private that it should be left up to the individual’s judgment.
This is the experiential activity involved in masturbation; that is, the imagination and/or sight of pornographic content. Here, we have clear commandment of God:
One must not choose to engage in the experience station (imagination and/or sight of pornographic content).
We emphasize the word “choose” because there are unchosen processes that occur in human beings; for example, sexual dreams, which are never sins. See our sexuality think tank at Sexual Karate: The Mastery of Self-Control for more information.
Evolutionists are evil because they apply evolution to a realm that evolution has nothing to do with – the spirtual realm. Evolution has to do with plants and animals. It has nothing to do with God and angels. Evolution has to do with protoplasm, nuclei, and mitochondria. It has nothing to do with spirt, mind, and soul. Evolution has to do with adaptation and natural selection. It has nothing to do with salvation and divine election. So, evolutionists, stick to what you know – plants and animals – and keep your mouths shut about what you don’t know – the deep things of life: God and human immortality.
Dr. Michael J. Bisconti is the founder of the science of empirical epistemology with over half a century of accumulated, scientific data and observations.
“E2 Science” is shorthand for “Empirical Epistemology.” What is empirical epistemology? Well, first, what is epistemology? We’ll give you Webster’s definition first then we’ll provide an easier to understand explanation:
Epistemology is the study or a theory of the nature and grounds of knowledge especially with reference to its limits and validity.
Epistemology is an explanation of what knowledge is and how to prove it is knowledge.
In the past, for millenia, epistemology has been provided by philosophers (thinkers). Well, in our age of science, that is not enough. Hence, we established:
“Empirical” means “based on experience.” Thus, empirical epistemology is:
The first scientific approach to epistemology
In other words:
We have established through scientific observation (experience) what knowledge is and how to prove it is knowledge.
Now, other researchers have been working on this as well and are prepared to take credit for our achievement. Therefore, we are copyrighting our work before we publish it. We will say this, though:
Those of you on a seemingly endless and futile quest for certainty, your search is amost over.
