Definitions (for purposes of this article)--ARRESTED Seized; apprehended; stopped; hindered; restrained.
DEVELOPMENT The series of changes or stages a person goes through from conception to adulthood.
Americans are not growing up to become mature adults. This is a message that most people do not want to hear. "Something is wrong with us," I would keep saying continually--but I don't know if anybody was listening, I think I just looked like something was wrong with me (which there was).
The term "Arrested Development" came to me yesterday. Later on, I took some notes--
To stop, interrupt
Progression by stage
[American-style Arrested Development stops, hinders, or interrupts progression at each stage of a person's life leaving them severely handicapped and retarded mentally at best and depraved, useless, wicked, and reprobate at worst. All iced over with pride that prohibits them from hearing the truth. They have to be right about everything.]
EARLY ON, ARREST THE ATTENTION AWAY FROM INWARD THOUGHT AND REFLECTION. REDIRECT IT TO THE OUTWARD AND SENSUAL. FROM THE IMPORTANT TO THE INCONSEQUENTIAL, INCORRECT, AND WICKED. [does not television do this?]
FROM REAL LIFE TO FANTASY
They deliver the continuous ramblings of men of corrupt minds through visual, spiritual, and audial channels full of incidents and enticements. They weave them INTO THE DEVELOPING MENTAL FABRIC THAT THE MIND MAY NEVER RECOVER. They arrest (seize) the attention with corruptive messages which include the ways/means to replicate the corruptions. Through various means and modes, they initiate into all categories of evil. They awaken what was not there and, having awakened the illicit, proceed to further corrupt. CORRUPTIONS TO MISLEAD, ENTICE, REDIRECT, HOOK/ADDICT TO CORRUPTION, CREATING INCONTINENT, FIERCE, OVERCOME PROFLIGATES THAT WILL RESPOND FAVORABLY TO WHATEVER THE LEADERS TELL THEM NO MATTER HOW OUTRAGEOUS IT IS.
This abominable attack surges on from infancy and onward during every stage of life. During the formation of the mind, it warps the attitude and conception of the world. This is a sustained, highly aggressive, systematic assault and corruption of the mind--the mind which has been diverted from its progress and arrested (held) and fixated on wickedness. How much foolishness and wickedness is on the television in cartoons where dogs read and rabbits talk? Television where revisionist history, scandalous speech, false science, lies, whoredom, foolishness, horror, and stealing are soaked in continually and further confirmed in conversations with other brainwashed people and in schools and homework and extracurricular activities and newspapers and movies?Proverbs 13:20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
Who can bear this from infancy through young childhood and into adulthood and not be GROSSLY MALFORMED MENTALLY? Who????? Name him. If we have been affected--and we have--should we not look to ourselves?[Note: Those who did not grow up with television may think all is well, however, from what I have seen in even the most conservative Mennonite circles and, from a distance, the Amish, we all need to do some checking on our souls for pride and correct doctrine. People are growing up with doctrines that they keep because their people keep those doctrines--and those doctrines are wrong. And some think that Bible college is the answer--they need to think again. The modern church has exchanged the anointing of the Holy Ghost for Bible college--colleges infiltrated by the poisoned "scholarship" that has corrupted the minds of multiplied millions. The "elders" believed a book that they ordered or a teaching they learned in Bible college and now say that Israel did not cross the Red Sea (I saw this with my own two eyes in a conservative Mennonite children's workbook (Rod & Staff's "God Chooses a Family" Book 5, page 125, Copyright 1997, Code 97-3-02, Catalogue 17521. It shows Israel NOT crossing the Red Sea) . Since their elders say it is so, the congregation decides that they must listen to the elders instead of confronting them and leaving that fellowship, if need be. Any message that contradicts God's word is a lie and it is to be rejected no matter who said it.Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Galatians 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
I submit that nobody is exempt from the possibility of corruption. Those that receive not the love of the truth are given over to strong delusion (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12). We must love the truth even when it shows our own deceptions, ignorance, sins, and problems.]
Back to the gross mental malformation...The underlying fabric of the mind was messed up--for some, worse than others.
Children are being kept away from the work, skills, outdoorsmanship, and the accompanying perception necessary to be a "regular" person while simultaneously being swept away into the imaginary, inconsequential, dangerous, and wicked by parents who were swept away. Profligates (people given over to sin) do not make good husbands and wives, fathers and mothers. They do not make good uncles and aunts, grandfathers and grandmothers. They do not make good teachers, friends, neighbors, citizens, associates, "pastors", or co-workers. Hence all the divorce, bullying, crimes, backbiting, etc. [Troubles meet the man at every stage of life.]
The people is swept away--
AWAY FROM THE TRUTH TO FICTION
(that world where dogs read and rabbits talk and wear glasses and children don't grow up)
AWAY FROM THE LIGHT TO THE ABYSS OF DARKNESS
(WHERE AT THE MERCY OF MEN OF CORRUPT MINDS, THERE IS A SPEEDY DESCENT TO THE DOCTRINES OF HELL, THEREBY RESULTING IN MADNESS, SIN, DEATH, AND DESTRUCTION--horror movies, whoredom, cartoons, etc. abound)
and then a man gets saved.and he goes to the church on the corner.
a church where people are still watching television. A church where dogs read and rabbits talk. A church where the deacon's "kid" takes his "Star Wars" video with him on outings so that he will have something to do.
and the man reads his Bible.
he never seems to quite fit in, but he stays in church--at least for a while (sometimes years) before he gives up and leaves to find God and holiness and to be free. The church people did not want to see him anymore anyway, he was "too legalistic" for their tastes.
