There is a lot said about the “carnal” mind. The carnal mind is just one whose focus is in time/space, on the globe we live on, of the flesh. Flesh meaning the physical body we house. It does not mean anything sinister or evil or pertaining to the physical sexual act. Preachers who major on the carnal mind are doing that to veer you off the reprobate mind.
The reprobate mind is the one that cannot be saved. Its every thought word and deed are to inflict harm. The reprobate cannot absorb truth. It cannot make right decisions. Those avenues and synapses are burned and destroyed. It is a type of automaton. You are deceived. Your truth is not truth. You have become a lie.
Those who are partaking in gaslighting in any form are REPROBATE, without remedy. No remedy. No mercy. No grace open to it. Do not mourn these entities.
A working definition of gaslighting I found on the internet is:
gaslighting (present participle)
- manipulate (someone) by psychological means into questioning their own sanity:
Gaslighting is a term that refers to trying to convince someone they’re wrong about something even when they aren’t. I would add, even when the one working to convince someone they’re wrong about something even when THEY KNOW the person is right.
Most commonly, it takes the form of frequently disagreeing with someone or refusing to listen to their point of view. Many of us might be guilty of some mild form of gaslighting from time to time – refusing to hear what our partner has to say even if they’re in the right or persistently disagreeing over some minor quibble, even when you aren’t sure of your position. It’s mostly harmless, a form of pettiness – an unwillingness to be proven wrong.
But, in more extreme cases it can be a real form of abuse. When it’s done repeatedly, over a long period of time, with full intent to do harm, it can have the effect of making someone doubt their own ideas about things – or even question their sanity. It can have a highly negative effect on a person’s self-esteem and confidence. In certain situations, someone might deliberately gaslight their partner as a way of controlling them – a serious form of emotional abuse that is never acceptable.
Why is gaslighting dangerous?
Gaslighting is dangerous because it undermines a person’s sense of self-belief. If you tell someone they’re wrong about things over and over, they will start to believe it. If you tell a person an apple is an orange, Eventually, they may come to agree with the person who is attacking them – believing that they must be right.
This can be true of small annoyances (‘I always do the washing up. Why don’t you do it?’ ‘You never do the laundry’) but it can be even more damaging when it’s related to things with an emotional context. This might include questioning your memory of events (‘Are you sure it was like that? I don’t think it was’) or trying to convince you that your emotional reaction to something is inappropriate or disproportionate (‘You’re acting crazy’).
Why does this happen?
Sometimes, the person doing the gaslighting doesn’t know they’re doing it. Sometimes, it’s as much to do with their own insecurities around being wrong or having less power in a relationship as it is out of an active desire to undermine their partner.
These insecurities might come out of experiences in childhood or in previous relationships. Or they might just be the kinds of insecurities that lots of us struggle to deal with – after all, it can be difficult to admit when you’re wrong.
In other cases, this can be a deliberate tactic used to make … another …. feel less confident and less likely to challenge them. Again, this is a totally unacceptable thing to do and a highly abusive pattern of behaviour.
The one who is gaslighting is always without exception doing it to gain power and/or authority/control over the mind of another. It is demonic in every aspect.
My words in blue. The black prose is from the article. I suggest you do a study of your own on this subject of gaslighting. It is the newest weapon from the rebellion against the true sons.
