Most of our common ways to maximize our levels of: self-confidence, certainty, purity and unity --- involve alienative risks due to arrogance, self-righteousness and hubris --- through the generation-and-maintenance of our: Alienative-Conflicts between our Good: Assumptions, Attitudes, Approaches and the Evil: Assumptions, Attitudes and Approaches of --- Evil-People - - - who are Strange-and-Different-Strangers whom we cannot trust to do what is Certainly-Right-and-Absolutely-True in God's-Way.

It is Extremely-Risky to Trust-Strangers who do not reliably know what is Certainly-Right- and-Absolutely-True in God's-Way. Such people have dangerous doubts about the Sharp-Boundaries between Right-and-Wrong, Good-and-Evil, Good-People and Evil-People, Absolute-Truth and The-Devil's-Seductive-Relative-Truths.

We have been called and anointed By-God to Do-God's-Will as Reliably-Delivered to US.

We have been called and ordained by God to "Further the peace,unity and puriity" of our very special-community; by excluding-from-power those Evil-People who are Strange-and-Different --- and cannot-be-trusted to do what is Certainly-Right under Our-God's-Will. God will defend us as we fulfill our ordained calling upon which we agree with certainty!

We must be certain that we do a good job of playing our collusive-games-of-mutual-self-deception. There can be no doubt about that! We must be fully in control of how faithfully we play to win in in such games, making sure that those whom we cast out are clearly the people who lose --- our-games-of-mutual-self-deception. We must defend the most faithful players of these games! We will win big rewards for our faithfulness in obedience!
