Technical – The Times and Purposes for Hidden-Implicit versus Explicit-Expressed Standards for Ministry

This is just a conversation starter. 

This record (post) is in development primarily via secure email exchanges from T.J. in absentia to this website until we get fully confirmed HIPAA standards, both fully applied and war-tested on this website.   

Pray we do not move from in absentia to fully in dementia getting there, won’t you?  Pray?

We have had this conversation, and prayer, and study together at least hundreds of times in our personal communions, and meetings together, in our work in the public too, and in our online exchanges, right back to ‘secure’ IRC channels.  

Case example: 

Ehud had hidden-implicit standards for operating (Judges 3:12–4:1) when Ehud killed Eglon, the king of Moab, with Ehud using the most false possible pretenses contradicting at least some of Ehud’s own explicit-express Jewish traditions and his Jewish standards for operation, like not bowing down to foreign gods, nor taking offerings to the gods of enemy kings.  

Was this an early case of identity theft?  Or is it a case of hacking Eglon’s “secure servers” (read the story)?  Why leave his dagger in so deep that the shit ran out?  Why is that detail important?  And why leave his dagger stuck in Eglon at all?  Was Ehud’s boldness only in sticking the king in the first place, or was his boldness  more, say in leaving his dagger in the king’s twisted shit and in shit deep, as Ehud’s public business card, “come over to my address now!  Visit my home page!”? How do you like me as a neighbor now?   

With all the sewage flowing out of Eglon, are we really in the flow – the public flow – of this sewage soaked ministry now?   What are you willing to get on your hands in your own service to God?  Why are any of these details important in this book? 

As a judge, I want to know motives – do you?

Are there different standards for when to be express-explicit and when to be hidden-covert that are related to motives?  If so, then how did Ehud get validation and confirmation for these different motives?  Or did he?  Did he just act and get away with it?  How much ministry is based on acting first and hoping that one gets away with it?  

Technical – Love is the Ontogenetic Source of Trust – by Micheal, and Celie∞Hilbert

This is  an experience proof.  Or an existential proof. 

Love starts as a sense of Presence in undifferentiated and global-felt- loving-presence and Love progressively becomes differentiated across the span of an entire lifetime, generating as a result progressively differentiated experiences of states of trust across various domains of human action, including in domains of science and religion as species (and sometimes both as psuedo-species) of differentiated trusts,  manifested in judgments of trustworthy or untrustworthy behaviors.  

The metric for trust is to invest trust in any object in proportion to the trustworthiness or untrustworthiness of the object trusted. 

Trust is extremely highly metric in all hard sciences, is somewhat less highly metric, but is metric still to a great extent, in social sciences and in law, and trust is either ubiquitously metric with infinite results (for good and for ill) in religion as “religion,” or is most profoundly person-specific, address-specific, and time-specific in all actions  (at least these three axes, in acts-praxes πρᾶξις of the Spirit, where ‘acts’ are the vectors of movement and dimension) motivated and moved in humans, acting under the Holy Spirit.  

See e.g., @ Acts-Praxes πρᾶξις of the Spirit

The ontogenetic source of metric-trust is Love.

Epigenetics and synergetic effects play a yet intractable-to-metrics source of physical manifestations in the hard sciences, and in human sciences such as is the case with many mental and physical illness.  

It is not the purpose of this one comment to explore existential proofs for demonic influences and especially not for demonic ‘possession’ as auxiliary metrics and diagnostic criteria for those medical practitioners who do advise and oversee such procedures.  The results of errors in the metrics and criteria used in such diagnoses are potentially catastrophic.
