Doctrine of Blockage of Bible Doctrine

February 4, 2016


A. Introduction.
1. This doctrine deals with the blockage of metabolization of Bible doctrine–the hindrances to the metabolization of doctrine.
2. The Background.
a. When Bible doctrine is taught by the spiritual gift of pastor-teacher, it goes through various stages.
(1) Positive volition is exercised by concentration under the filling of the Spirit, called “hearing the Word of God.” The Holy Spirit teaches the human spirit so that the doctrine becomes PNEUMATIKOS or spiritual phenomena understood academically.
(2) Then doctrine goes to the NOUS or left lobe to the mentality of the soul. This is where spiritual phenomena becomes GNOSIS doctrine, which is academic understanding only. GNOSIS has no spiritual content as such. It is a staging area for metabolism.
b. Metabolization of doctrine is moving GNOSIS doctrine in the left lobe of the soul to the KARDIA or heart, which is the right lobe of the soul. The heart has two concepts: the stream of consciousness with its seven compartments and the subconscious. In the heart or right lobe of the soul, Bible doctrine is metabolized as EPIGNOSIS. EPIGNOSIS is the only doctrine that has a spiritual connotation.
3. When there is a blockage between the conversion of GNOSIS to EPIGNOSIS, then you have the most disastrous condition for the believer.
4. GNOSIS is not the spiritual life. The spiritual life is EPIGNOSIS. EPIGNOSIS is spiritual growth, metabolized doctrine.
5. What is the basis for this blockage? How is it possible for a believer to come to Bible class on a consistent basis, to accumulate GNOSIS only, and therefore, to have no spiritual life, but rather to go from self-fragmentation to polarized fragmentation to the eight stages of reversionism to Christian moral or immoral degeneracy, and to become involved in dissociation (which is so much garbage in the subconscious that the believer becomes a psycho Christian).
6. Every believer uses his volition or free will to become a vessel of honor or a vessel of dishonor. The difference between a vessel of honor and a vessel of dishonor is the blockage between GNOSIS and EPIGNOSIS. This blockage is what causes people to say, “Doctrine does not work.”
7. Eph 4:18, “They have darkened their way of thinking, and they have been alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance which is in them, because of scar tissue in their hearts.”
a. The “life of God” is metabolized doctrine circulating in the compartments of the stream of consciousness.
b. Alienation from the life of God is lack of metabolized doctrine in the heart’s stream of consciousness or replacing that doctrine with reversionism. It is GNOSIS without EPIGNOSIS.
8. Principles.
a. When you have GNOSIS and fail to metabolize doctrine, you have academic understanding. You never apply academic understanding to yourself but only to others through self-righteousness.
b. Self-righteous arrogance is non-forgiving, implacable, vindictive, guilty of vilification, revenge, and seek to hurt those persons whom you will not forgive.
c. Arrogant preoccupation with self is a major block in the metabolization of Bible doctrine, and thereby, spiritual life and spiritual growth.
d. A flawed believer is a vessel of dishonor even though that vessel was prepared at salvation to be a vessel of glory.
e. All believers sin, which we will classify as faults. But flaws are all of the sins that result from blocking metabolization of doctrine. A flawed believer has lots of GNOSIS but little or no EPIGNOSIS. The sins of the arrogance complex and the sins of the emotional complex prevent metabolization and produce the flawed believer. Any association with a flawed believer is a tragedy in life. For example, people who marry a flawed believer have instant and terrible problems. In churches, flawed believers are legalistic bullies.

B. James 1:20-25.
1. Jam 1:20, “For the anger of persons does not achieve virtue from God.”
a. Anger can and often does represent the implacable and vindictive believer who replaces mandated forgiveness (“Forgive as Christ forgave,” Eph 4:32) with anger.
b. Anger and hatred is the first representative of a gnosis Christian, one who has not metabolized doctrine.
2. Jam 1:21, “Therefore remove all pollution and excess of evil, receive with humility the implanted doctrine, which is able to deliver your souls.”
a. “Excess of evil” describes a flawed person, not a believer who fails, not a believer who sins.
b. This verse is teaching that problem solving begins with rebound and the filling of the Spirit, and then moves to faith perception which metabolizes doctrine.
c. Only metabolized doctrine can produce problem solving devices. Only metabolized doctrine can deliver your souls.
3. Jam 1:22, “Moreover, keep on becoming doers of the word, and not hearers only, constantly deluding themselves.”
a. If you have GNOSIS minus EPIGNOSIS, you are a hearer of the teaching of the Word of God but not a doer of the Word. This passage has nothing to do with Christian service.
b. A doer of the Word is: the believer with metabolized doctrine circulating in the right lobe of the soul, the believer who extrapolates from epignosis doctrine the problem solving devices, the believer who avoids the flaws through metabolized doctrine in the stream of consciousness, the believer who fulfills the principles of his spiritual gift, the believer who functions under his priesthood and represents himself before the Lord with occupation with Christ, and the believer who uses his royal ambassadorship to witness for Christ.
c. The believer who never metabolizes doctrine constantly deludes himself. These are the believers who think they are great, those who are filled with their own self-importance. They never see themselves in light of the Word of God but with gnosis, they see everyone else. These are the believers who are critical, vindictive, implacable, on the one hand full of self-pity and on the other hand constantly nagging, pushing, and building themselves up at the expense of everyone else.
d. Self-fragmentation through the sins of the arrogance and the emotional complexes hinders the metabolization of doctrine.
(1) Absence of epignosis in the heart or right lobe means a flawed believer. A flawed believer cannot apply doctrine to self and distorts doctrinal application to others.
(2) Absence of epignosis means that a flawed believer converts the outside pressure of adversity into the inside pressure of stress in the soul. The believer who is a hearer but not a doer of the Word lives under stress in the soul.
(3) The doer of the Word has maximum metabolized doctrine in the stream of consciousness and maximum use of the problem solving devices and develops what we do not have naturally–humility and authority orientation.
4. Jam 1:23, “For if anyone is a hearer of the word but not a doer, this person is like an individual who looks at his natural face in a mirror.”
a. The believer who hears Bible doctrine and fails to metabolize it, so that it remains only academic understanding, is a hearer but not a doer of the word of God.
b. The hearer of the word cannot prevent the conversion of the outside pressure of adversity into the inside pressure of stress in the soul. Stress in the soul blocks metabolization of doctrine.
c. Inevitably, the hearer builds up the most phenomenal blind arrogance and they make a role model out of self, so that when their self-righteousness is challenged, they become competitive by maligning, judging, and gossiping. They express their implacability and their hatred in inordinate competition and they seek to put down and destroy anything that gets in their comfortable position of building up self from gnosis. This is the description of the flawed believer. The hearer only distorts self-righteous arrogance into anger, hatred, vindictiveness, implacability, vilification, revenge, no genuine forgiveness, and a total absence of virtue love.
5. Jam 1:24, “For once he looks at himself and departs, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.”
a. If all you have is gnosis, you never see yourself in the light of the word of God. The flawed believer never applies doctrine accurately to himself, yet he applies gnosis doctrine to others critically. He sees flaws in others in his left lobe, but never sees his own flaws. The flawed believer is very hypersensitive about himself and totally insensitive toward others. The flaws of the arrogance complex blind the believer to his own failures and hinder the function of faith perception. Yet the flawed believer has a remarkable ability to see the failures of others and to be critical of them. They never see others in terms of impersonal love.
b. When the flawed believer uses his own mental attitude sins and verbal sins to prevent gnosis from being metabolized into epignosis, he has used the law of volitional responsibility to become a vessel of dishonor. Garbage in the subconscious then comes in to help hinder metabolization.
c. The doer of the word applies doctrine to himself and sees himself in the light of the word of God.
6. Jam 1:25, “But he who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom, and has persisted, not having become a forgetful hearer but a doer of accomplishment, this man will be happy in what he does.”
a. The perfect law of freedom is Bible doctrine.
b. The believer who is a hearer and doer of the word of God has doctrine circulating in his stream of consciousness, and this doctrine works for him in every possible way. He avoids the flaw of self-righteous arrogance with a critical attitude toward others.
c. The characteristics of the hearer and doer of the word are:
(1) He converts gnosis into epignosis through faith perception and metabolized doctrine circulates in the seven compartments of the stream of consciousness.
(2) He applies epignosis doctrine in the stream of consciousness to himself. As a result, he clears the garbage out of the subconscious.
(3) He extrapolates the problem solving devices from metabolized doctrine in his stream of consciousness and puts them in the forefront of his thinking for application.
(4) He uses the problem solving devices to prevent outside pressures of adversity becoming inside pressure of stress in the soul.
(5) He produces divine good through the principle that spiritual skills must precede production skills for the performance of divine good. He glorifies God in time through the fulfillment of His plan, purpose, and will.

C. The Blocks to Metabolization of Doctrine.
1. Eph 4:30-31, “Stop grieving the Holy Spirit, the God, by whom you have been sealed until the day of redemption. All bitterness, both anger and wrath, verbal brawling and slander, must be removed from you, along with all malice.”
a. A bitter soul never metabolizes doctrine.
b. Bitter people slander because they have placed themselves on a pedestal.
c. Malice is one of the most descriptive words of gnosis without epignosis, of the hearer but not the doer of the word. Malice is the desire and the motivation of the gnosis believer to inflict suffering and injury on others.
2. Eph 4:32, “But become kind toward one another, compassionate and forgiving each other, just as God also by means of Christ has forgiven us.”

D. Summary.
1. Believers can be positive toward doctrine and still fail to metabolize that doctrine.
2. Every preconceived notion that is wrong, every notion that contradicts the plan of God that you have learned from childhood finds its way into the stream of consciousness. Preconceived notions circulating in the stream of consciousness contradict Bible doctrine that has reached the left lobe of the soul as gnosis. They give you a false impression of self and are just waiting for gnosis doctrine to come along so they can reject it and not believe it. This believer immediately forgets the doctrine they have just learned. Gnosis doctrine cannot be converted into epignosis because the preconceived notions are busy trying to throw all that doctrine out of the soul. These preconceived notions are firmly planted in the stream of consciousness; they have been there since childhood; they are reality up to that point in a person’s life. Doctrine slaps down these preconceived notions, so that now you must make a decision as to what is right: your preconceived notions of how great you are or the truth of Bible doctrine.
3. Before positive volition existed toward Bible doctrine, the stream of consciousness was loaded with inculcated myths of life, such as: marriage is a state of happiness, sex is happiness, money is happiness, approbation is happiness. Reality is that virtue, integrity, and honor based on metabolized doctrine is happiness. Most believers have been propagandized with the myth that circumstances constitute happiness or legalism is happiness.
4. The inner resources of Bible doctrine cannot be formed in the state of positive volition when preconceived notions contradict gnosis (doctrine understood academically in the left lobe of the soul). Because of the conflicts with preconceived ideas in the stream of consciousness, there is a grid lock, a bottle neck. The accumulation of gnosis in the left lobe is never metabolized because of fallacious, unsound, misleading, and erroneous reasoning which has saturated the stream of consciousness (sometimes for years) with deceptive, contradictory ideas which resist gnosis being converted into epignosis and prevent the metabolization of Bible doctrine.
5. Three things make this identification of myths sometimes difficult and sometimes impossible.
a. Self-righteous arrogance, which is self-centered arrogance, blind arrogance plus the arrogance complex of sins.
b. Dissociation, which results in garbage in the subconscious which hinders identification of problems and stimulates emphasis on the problems and failures of others.
c. Lack of authority orientation.
