synopsis
 
"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness” (Gen.1:26).

God created the soul in His own image and likeness and designed the soul to follow a pattern for increase in His likeness within the environment He designed for this contact. Aggregating naturally occurring data, establishing systems theory for IDCCST, understanding knowledge transference, cyclical patterns, and transmutation functions of Spiritual Conjugation, measuring truth in light of its power, demonstrating homeostasis in God's physiology of truth are the dynamics found in God's Intelligent Design for Christ-Centered Spiritual Transformation.

Everything that God created in the universe is with design and demonstrates structure within that design to govern function. If we see design, structure, and function at the level of natural creation we should see it again at the level where God engages with humanity.

With 28 years of qualitative research, efficacy studies, clinical evidence, multi-scale analysis, design incompatibility studies, impact studies, and gap analysis reports Apostle vonAnderseck has established Intelligent Design in God _ s Spiritual Ecosystem and intends to answer such questions that relate to IDCCST such as,

  • "How are knowledge spheres transformed into integrated experiences?"
  • "What is the inertia rich environment required for IDCCST and how do those dynamics play out upon the soul?"
  • "How is veracity measured in light of its power?"
  • "What is Half-Life and how does it exhibit titration into God's truth?"
  • "What is the dynamic behavior of the knowledge and tools of the Second Covenant upon the soul for Spiritual Conjugation?"
  • "What questions do we need to ask about design, structure, and function to understand IDCCST?"
  • "Can multiple cultures experience the same spiritual transformation processes and still retain their ethnicity?"

Aggregating Naturally Occurring Data
Investigating Intelligent Design
God's Intelligent Design for Christ-Centered Spiritual TransformationGod’s ecosystem of truth provides us with a natural laboratory where we can study the phenomena of Spiritual Transformation. The human nature yearns for re-birth, for a definitive statement of origin, purpose, and destiny, to understand self, refine self, and conquer self, and to reconnect with God. What’s going to produce this re-birth, this transformation? What’s going to sustain it? What are the tools that God designed for the soul to be sustained by His grace? What knowledge sphere is self-referencing and which knowledge sphere references us to God? What dynamic behavior is endemic to IDCCST? Naturally occurring interactions between multiple distinct signature values can be observed, studied, and experienced. True theology is not only our observance of God's ecosystem of truth, but our active involvement in it. One cannot write about what one does not experience.

Transfer Functions
Investigating Intelligent Design
God designed His truth with dynamic behavior and transfer functions that nurture the soul by divine contact. The ability to differentiate spiritual transformation by system defined compatible attributes results in successful transfer from knowledge, to spiritual tool, to soul impact. The failure to successfully understand the criteria for spiritual transformation translates into inability to achieve and sustain IDCCST. Each spiritual unit of measure is a reference standard for Spiritual Conjugation the process of converting the elements of the gospel and the tools of the Second Covenant into the virtues of Christ within the heart. Conversion by the power of Christ is necessary for successful transfer of the likeness of Christ to the soul. Christology is this study of Christ.

28 Years Qualitative Research
Investigating Intelligent Design
Beginning in 1971 since his conversion, and from 1977 (beginning of his calling to apostleship) to the present, Apostle vonAnderseck has observed, recorded, studied, and documented personal experiences of Christ-Centered Spiritual Transformation. He has recorded over 3,000 dreams and over 6,000 spiritual experiences. A Spiritual Vitae is the collection of recorded, tangible experiences that are systemically associated with Christ-Centered Spiritual Transformation (CCST). These are not random experiences, subject to happenchance, but causally linked to the Second Covenant terms and protocols God has established for deep, sustained contact for the redemption and care of the soul.

Efficacy Studies
Investigating Intelligent Design
Efficacy Studies evaluate the relationship between prediction, engagement, and outcome of various spiritual transformation models and compare those to the design structures and function of IDCCST. The results of these studies demonstrate consistent low-end yield for spiritual transformation models that have design components incompatible with IDCCST and consistently demonstrated high-end spiritual yield for IDCCST.

Clinical Studies
Investigating Intelligent Design
Conducted a 5 year international ethnographic research study of culturally diverse groups utilizing IDCCST model of spiritual transformation. Clinical evidence showed a predictable pattern for transformation that behaves consistently across religious and cultural boundaries to assist believers to connect with God, overcome obstacles of faith crisis, allowing them to achieve their spiritual goals 100 % of the time.

Multi-Scale Analysis
Investigating Intelligent Design
The vonAnderseck Assessment Scale (VAS) is a concise means of measuring doctrine and discipline against primary and secondary factors to determine where the Exigent Faith lies and how to assist those in faith crisis to make choices that will enhance their Christian experience rather than destroy it. Multi-scale analysis is used to approach and evaluate spiritual transformation protocols. Each scale uniquely allows investigators and educators to approach the information they intend to evaluate within relevant context to measure successes against a proven system; measuring spiritual yield by plotting the results against the benchmarks.

Verification
Investigating Intelligent Design
Verification of spiritual transformation cannot be set in single incidents of subjective experiences. Rather, verification must be set within a system. Truth evaluates to the system that produced it. Therefore we are verifying and authenticating the system as well as the experience it birthed. When observation of spiritual transformation comes in single incidents the experience is being assessed outside of the context of the system that produced it. Knowledge experts then speak of the experience, but not the system that produced the experience. A single experience of spiritual transformation can be assessed within the immediate environment and tools that induced the experience, but not understood within relevant context of the soul, the will, the conscience, and the kingdom that produced it.

There are essential features that must be present for IDCCST take place. There are specific components, if titrated into the system change the dynamics of the system. When this happens people complain about faith crisis. They still profess experiences, but the experiences are accompanied with paradoxes. The EVA Law of Veracity states: The veracity of any truth is measured in light of its power. In other words, the value of truth is measured in light of its power to perpetuate a continual cycle of unbroken spiritual transformation that is causally linked to proven methodology.

Quote from Apostle vonAnderseck
Investigating Intelligent Design
Bridging the gap between exclusivism and inclusivism; diversity and unity. Redemption cannot take our image; it must take on the image of Jesus Christ. As God set a restriction upon Satan _ s imagination to disallow his projection into God’ss plan, God also set a restriction upon our imagination so our imagination does not enter into His plan to plunder for self. There are not many truths about Jesus Christ, but one truth. This one size fits all concept of truth has been spurned by some as narrow minded and exclusive. However, the Spirit of God enters into the covenant doctrine and discipline that Jesus shed His blood to provide. God, as the Creator of His own faith model, designed the model to be living, and planned that He would personally become involved with the model to interact and engage with each believer on an intimate, intelligent level. Therefore, it takes on the properties of inclusivism. Because the God-Indigenous Faith Model is living, and because God created it to be interactive, it grows and changes with the needs of the individual believer yet the doctrine and discipline itself does not change. This ability of God to design a model that stays the same in application and principle, yet grows with the individual is equal to His ability to create and design the universe and all that is therein (vonAnderseck, E. (2005). “Breaking The Anti-Christ Code; The Blueprint of Deception,” chap. 14).

Systems Theory
Investigating Intelligent Design
Systems theory is the study of the unifying laws, principles, and structure of a complex environment. Systems theory looks at an environment and asks the question, "Do we know what is going on within the system and how it produces the results we see?" We define our question by first studying the framework in terms of the binary, proclitic, and systemic values that are integral to that system. We then trace dynamic behavior from structural design to predictable functions, observing the unique cyclical patterns that drives the patterns of revolution. In regard to God's culture of truth, systems theory describes the dynamics of an ecosystem and the powers that play upon that system to keep it in motion, to keep it growing, and forming Christ within the soul.

Physiology of Truth
Investigating Intelligent Design
The physiology of truth takes a turn away from the physical reactions of the body in response to knowledge spheres and turns the attention towards Christ Himself who said, “I am truth.” According to Claude Bernard, “...Physiology is the science which investigates those phenomena that are characteristic of the living being...We study here the vital process itself...” (Phenomenon of Life, 1878). The phenomena characteristic of the living Christ, His knowledge, His power and virtue, and the vital processes of transferring His life to the soul is the physiology of truth. That physiology of truth requires the same dynamics of internal environment, can demonstrate mechanical and spiritual functions that describe the exchange of substance between the soul of man and the soul of God.

Design and Function
Investigating Intelligent Design
Willard Van Orman Quine, American logician and philosopher, thought that the most useful language system for humanity is that of science (retrieved March 16, 2005 from http://people.uncw.edu/stanleym/bewitch/quine.html). Yet according to Charles Townes, the UC Berkeley professor who was awarded the $1.5-million Templeton Prize in March of 2005, there is no greater question facing humankind than discovering the purpose and meaning of life. He is quoted as saying, “If you look at what religion is all about, it's trying to understand the purpose and meaning of our universe. . . Science tries to understand function and structures. If there is any meaning, structure will have a lot to do with any meaning. In the long run they must come together.” (Stammer L.B.,Times Staff Writer, _ Physicist Wins Spirituality Prize, Los Angeles Times, March 10, 2005).

Townes is right about the question of purpose and how it presses heavily upon the soul. People want to know, “What is my origin, purpose, and destiny? What is the purpose of life? Why am I here? Where do I fit in? What is God’s purpose in creating the universe and the human race?” These are timeless questions. Although science has contributed much to advance humanity to discover the environment in which we live, the language of science has not been useful in translating God’s system, design, structure, truth, or culture into an ontology for IDCCST; the language of science has not been useful in building the bridge to span faith failure. People are still looking for the purpose of life, they still suffer spiritual separation anxiety, they are still frustrated and confused because they do not know how to reconnect with God.

God created the soul in His own image and likeness. Therefore, God designed the soul to experience completion and increase only through contact with Him. Yet we have seen throughout history that thousands of spiritual tools can bring a life time of spiritual experiences that are said to be very satisfying. People of every faith confess spiritual highs, love, joy, and awe. However, it is important to note that not all spiritual experiences bring the soul to completion nor increase the soul in the likeness of God. When faith participants can’t make that distinction they are confronted with many problems as the soul continues to struggle against paradoxes and a host of Exigent Faith symptoms. The claims of spiritual experiences of love, joy, or awe are weighed against these Exigent Faith symptoms to determine the veracity of truth.

Quining The Constant
Investigating Intelligent Design
Quine: Named after Willard Van Orman Quine, American mathematician and logician, Quine’s work with indirect self-referencing is interesting. “Indirect self-reference describes an object referring to itself indirectly. For example, define the function f such that f(x) = “x(x)”. Then, the object f(f) = “f(f)”. This object could be seen as indirectly referring to itself. This example is similar to the Scheme “expression “((lambda(x)(x x)) (lambda(x)(x x))) which evaluates to itself, and therefore implements an infinite loop without using any looping constructs.” (Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indirect_self-reference). A slight variation of the principle of the Quine is used to establish a system of measurement that demonstrates direct self-referencing rather than indirect self-referencing. Knowledge base and spiritual tools will either directly reference faith participant to the kingdom of Light (Constant) or the Kingdom of Darkness (Variable). The power of Jesus Christ in His knowledge and His tools evaluates to Himself, implementing an infinite loop.

God said, “I am that I am;” this demonstrates God evaluating to Himself, implementing an infinite loop (self perpetuating) based on Himself. This is why He is called the Alpha and Omega, from everlasting to everlasting. God’s plan has a beginning and ending that He set within the infinite properties of Himself. His plan will therefore duplicate what He is perpetually. God being self eternal embodies the very power of what He is. He does not need to access any power outside Himself to sustain His virtue. God intruded into this dimension with His power (called Christ) to engraft into humanity this seal, which breaks the cycle of sin and death and brings peace and equity to the soul. The Constant is sustained by faith, so God put that value within a covenant and governs the activity with knowledge structures and functions that allow believers to reciprocate “in kind.”

God uses the tools of light to beget the fruits of Jesus Christ within the soul for which there is an eternal reward of light and life (eternal inheritance with God). God’s inspiration is directly interfaced with holy knowledge, spiritual tools, and activity of faith that evaluates to Himself, thus implementing an infinite loop. Therefore, any CPI that is tethered to this baseline is Quining the Constant rather than the Variable.
