Dear bretheren and visitors,
When true Apostolic Governance was abandoned the faith of believers fell into a crisis. Truth was titrated with error which resulted in believers experiencing despair, anxiety, frustration, guilt, confusion, lack of purpose and fatigue and thus mitigating tools were developed to make up for these paradoxical experiences.
It is by these mitigating tools that faith practitioners have become parasites instead of fathers in the faith. A parasite is a person who habitually relies on or exploits others and gives nothing in return (dictionary definition). These mitigating tools are a compromise to the terms of the covenant of Jesus Christ. They only lessen the blow of the paradox and normalize it and thus church leaders who guide believers into the activity with these powerless tools are giving nothing to believers but taking from them their emotional energy, finances and trust.
The most popular mitigating tools are the Sliding Scale, Program Recall, Journey Mask, and Retooling of Themistic Law and you can read about these in Apostle Erics' doctoral thesis. These tools do not bring about the fruits of the Spirit in the soul, they do not change the perspective and they do not purge the conscience of sins. It is only by the tools of the covenant of Jesus Christ that we can overcome self, Satan and the world experiencing Gods' Intelligent Design for Christ-Centered Spiritual Transformation.
For your edification and growth: "The power tools effect change and freedom from sin whereas mitigating tools cause us to accept life in bondage to sin and death."
Yours in Christ,
Second 8th Week Apostolic Institute of Theology
