Twitter users have called on Davey Blackburn to stop publishing Amanda Blackburn's private journal. Read it here.
Why does he do it? The crass nature of his ambition, and ability to deceive tells us that he will do "whatever it takes" to accomplish his goals in life. He always has.
This is very difficult for the average honest person to accept. It is taught in Scripture, and it is taught in statistics and it is taught in Statement Analysis. It is a progression, or pathway, of deception and its end.
It begins in childhood when the child is not corrected for lying and he grows stronger in lying so that each 'successful deception' only strengthens both selfishness, and contempt for others. The liar is a murderer in training. As one becomes desensitized to the impact of lying upon others, it is only the situation that arises that can lead to murder: the liar will do whatever it takes for self to be satisfied and though the child liar's self only wants to get out of homework, the teenaged 'self' wants more, as does the young adult, and then, the adult.
Liars get worse with age.
It is the path of life that actually gets stronger with age.
Deception is linked to theft and if needs be, murder.
Few people understand this, and this is why companies who screen for deception protect themselves from the myriad of fraudulent suits so popular today, and why homicide investigators must learn to discern deception.
'He lied about who's house it was, but that doesn't mean he killed her!'
Actually, it does.
It was the motive.
Statement Analysis showed the deception regarding the title deed of the home and linked him to the murder only to later learn: he had no record of violence but had 50 years of deception and when his girlfriend saw through it, he killed her to take away her home.
Not only did Blackburn humiliate her in life, but continued to after her death, reading her personal journal, telling us that she was not well read, and than he won't be alone for very long, as his language of "moving on" came immediately and repeatedly.
He went from there to disparagement of the sufficiency of Scritpure, and turned a biblical story into his own "marching orders" with the delusional "God told me in the shower that I would be great in history" speech.
There is something else regarding this that should be considered.
1. The coincidental nature of the case has been thoroughly explored
2. The psychological profile of the husband has been mildly explored, including:
a. obsession with work
b. sexual projection
c. subtle degradation of victim
d. incessant marketing and self promotion
There is this that must be explored further: the nature, design and pathway of deception.
Deception begins small but its end is murder.
I had noted that by going beyond the sufficiency of Scipture, he did so on the path of cult like status.
Once a leader or organization goes beyond their authority, the appetite for power is insatiable. For some, it is generational, while for strong personailties, it goes quickly, even in one leader's life time.
The educated and intelligent man recognizes that in order to capitalize on his wife's murder, he had to go beyond the boundary of scripture for his own purposes:
He knows exactly what he is doing.
This is the key.
I wrote that in his statement about the quotes from God that he was "deceptive indicated" which has a specific meaning: in order to be deceptive, one must know he is deceptive; not wrong. That he goes beyond the sufficiency of Scripture (demanding to be heard as one who has directly heard from God), he has shown a willingness to lie.
This lie must be seen for what it is. Today, LA schools are shut down due to credible threat.
Q. Why do many Americans fail to see Islam as the overarching criminal and lethal threat it is?
They see it not as a supremacist criminal ideology but as a religion. For many Americans, religion is a "lifestyle" to be adapted into life. They do not see it as that which formed the United States, or that is all encompassing. It is compartmentalized and quickly overruled by most anything.
Americans project this view point onto Islam. They do not grasp the slavery, mutilation of young girls, stealth jihad, view of work, itself, and so on. They project themselves into another and fail to see.
This is the point in lying.
A 15 year old girl is hired by her church to answer the phones from 5PM to 9PM and do basic clerical work.
While doing this, she is assigned the clerical duty of mail where people send in cash for prayers for their dead relatives.
She pockets a good portion of the cash each night, week after week, for the months she worked there. Just a foolish teenaged thing, or an indicator of trouble to come in life? Not only is 15 very late, but not caught, the consequences will increase in time.
Here is what most people fail to grasp and this failure will cost them dearly:
"Just because someone tells a few mistruths, it doesn't make them a murderer." Cindy Anthony.
This failure to grasp the reality of deception cost someone her life; Caylee Anthony.
Regarding Blackburn and his 'divine revelation': I pointed it out, not for theological arguments, but for another classification that is very closely associated with murder as part of the overall 'coincidental nature' of this case.
Not only do we have a husband madly driven for success with a wife hindering it, and all the bizarre coincidence pointed out by investigators, but we have a pattern of deceit that falls in line with the coincidence already examined.
We have noted that he had complained about Amanda, boasted of his heterosexual sex drive which Amanda could not satisfy, and that a steady stream of both distancing language and subtle castigating the victim has been seen.
We have noted the bizarre circumstances of being driven in his career, his wife's imposition to this career, and her sudden and violent removal from hindering his ministry. He was at the gym, the place of his sexual temptation, when she went down and, we have been told, spoke every week at the same time to the same friend which also just happened to fall on the day of her murder...
If that is not bad enough, there is then this:
On this particular one hour call, 20 minutes of the call was spent en route to the home, but for 40 more minutes of this weekly one hour call to the very same person was now spent in the driveway while Amanda lay bleeding out.
What are the odds?
We have seen this, and the bizarre distancing language, lack of denial, guilty pronoun use and now, with his "vision" of Ezekiel, insulting of his father in law's congregation, and his personal "Isaiah" meeting with God (of whom Isaiah emerged humbled for service, but Davey emerged in historical importance) we have the category that, from his own Bible, is less than pleasant,and it predicts what may happen next besides the media and Hollywood assault with "Amanda's Story" blitz.
Liars versus the Errant
Blackburn did not have a Q & A with God.
He is deceptive.
To be deceptive, one must know he is deceptive. Statement Analysis does not pick up error; it picks up the language that is used to deceive.
"I had this thought" previewed "God spoke to my heart" which then prepared for "God said, Davey..." which thus allowed the deception to be noted in the need to qualify it for later defense.
He was not done.
This is vital.
He showed that not only is he a liar, but a most purposeful and cunning liar.
He wanted to show his authority.
It would not be enough to slogan Amanda's death to drum up business. He knew he needed more which is precisely why he ambushed his father-in-law's church with the "authoritative insulting correction", which, in effect, said, "Your pastor has failed to feed you. He has deprived you of nutrition and has fed himself while you have suffered famine and finally starved to death."
The emasculated father of Amanda took the spanking publicly.
Why would he allow a young kid who should have been grieving and incapable of doing much other than crying, to publicly insult and humiliate him and his entire congregation?
Davey knows why.
He had just played Moses in the mountain and returned with thunderous Divine authority.
Amanda's father is a victim of a lie, just as the congregation was. Was Amanda, ultimately, the victim of a liar who so desperately wants success that he had her removed?
How does the father in law refute to his board, for example, that his flock is dead and he should not be fired? Blackburn got his 'foot in the door' claiming divine authority while knowing that no such conversation took place, and no such vision was given.
My point about the sufficiency of Scripture was principly about the pattern of cult leaders who seize for themselves tyrannical authority, but there is something else that should not be missed and this comes from Christ, Himself, and how He spoke about people. Cult leaders grow with success. They don't back down.
Cult leaders are liars. They seek control over lives to exploit them and no one knows where the exploitation ends and the damage done. Look at the 'date setters' in religion. How many of them have actually said, "I was wrong; forgive me..."?
Even those who appeared to do a 'mea culpa' were embittered and sometimes 're set' the numbers and continued to arrogantly draw attention to themselves.
The authority, once claimed, is not returned, nor is it satisfied at its current level. Like a successful thief, the score was big, but there will be the temptation for 'just one more' even bigger reward.
When you told your dearest Aunt Polly that she didn't look a day over 70, you are not a fabricator of reality. You're not a liar and you must not think in terms of "all liars" are the same.
Your son did not do his homework and lied about it. You corrected him because you know
a. Lying is wrong
b. Lying has consequences
c. Lying hurts people
d. All children lie and must be taught otherwise.
If you do not correct him, you will be very sorry later in life, as will those who will be hurt by the liar you failed to correct.
In spite of all moral relativism, excuse making, delicate snow flake college feelings, and victim status, when a company hires a fabricator of reality, it is not "if" but "when" the liar brings his or her harm.
Liars who put their own needs and wants above others can, and do, graduate to murder. The links of deception and murder are real, but often dismissed by social or white liars who fail to understand the threat and damage.
The liar who is 'successful' in childhood grows to continue to lie:
a. He or she loses empathy for mankind
b. Fears consequences less and less due to success
c. Holds people in contempt; a growing contempt, as each successful lie 'proves' to the liar his or her own supremacy.
e. Increases selfishness.
This increase in selfishness along with the process of desensitization does things that just a few years before, he would not have considered.
Blackburn's message of 'jesus' has little resemblance to the Jesus described by John the Baptist. This alone is enough to offend the senses, but it is something that matters to this case: the driving force is greed. He must have his numbers and a liar will stop at nothing because it is all he knows from childhood.
We have all remarked at the incredible lack of emotion he showed after Amanda's violent sexual murder.
We have all remarked at the incredible lack of emotion about his son or pre born child.
We all were shocked, as were police, at the calloused salesmanship so very close to her death and while the killers were on the loose.
This is the path he is on, but he has given us insight into his history where he, himself, speaks of lying.
In his high school lie story, the lie he told had universally shaken everyone, from his own teachers and coaches, to faculty, to family, to...his peers.
In his remarks, he was left utterly alone, abandoned by all, including peer.
What is shocking about this is that a single lie can hurt this many people, including peer, yes, but there is something more shocking:
He showed no concern, or human empathy, for all the hurt he caused, as he, as an adult, looked back to high school. His concern was only his reputation.
This is a liar. This is what they do and how they operate.
They get worse with time as desensitization meets with continued success and an incessant growth of contempt.
Where does the contempt lead?
This is not a white lie or a social lie: this is one who's traits have become cemented into himself so that he is unafraid to lie using God, God's people, and the Bible.
The purpose of swearing an oath upon the Bible was to so very heighten one's own fear of Divine Judgement, that one would be forced to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Blackburn is utterly unafraid to lie about his shower conversation with God.
Yes, we have noted the sexual connection to water and how in child abuse, sexual assaults and sexual homicides "water" enters the language.
Criminal psychologists, psychologists, and statement analysts, along with investigators, did not miss this reference from a man who has coincidence standing firmly against him.
It is interesting as the Amanda Blackburn murder case has hit the news, how few people have felt that Blackburn was not involved. Even among those who have stated that they believe he is not connected, their support of him ended there. These have stated that he speaks the language of guilt and has something to hide.
Then there are those who, like me, identify the guilty language and behavior, and openly opine that they are not certain it is directly related to the murder.
It is not just the coincidental nature of the case that has drawn suspicion;
It is not just the emerging profile of selfish ambition that has fueled speculation.
It is now the factor of one who not only fabricates reality, but is unafraid of using his deception, boldly, to gain authority and control which will thus be used to further his goal of grandiose history making self.
Lastly, there is this to be known of liars:
It is what they do. Like the message of the 'pearls before swine' they 'turn again' and they attack.
Lance Armstrong, a liar since childhood, fabricated reality and when exposed, sought to destroy others.
Liars hold the world in contempt. It begins early and even the kindly kindergarten teacher of whom the child has successfully lied to, is slightly devalued in the mind of the child and each successful lie means another victim, unworthy of the truth, incapable of discernment, further enhancing the ever growing self esteem of the liar.
Contempt grows and it grows.
Blackburn showed utter contempt of all that is holy when he expressed his personal emotional disappointment over failure to invite people out, comparing it negatively to those who claimed received eternal salvation. This is far more telling than most realize.
He held his audience in contempt when he not only claimed to have intimate, name using conversation with God in the shower, but when he then turned and ripped his father-in-law's work, right in front of him, only to see the older man humiliated into accepting this subordination. He ripped the congregation, just as he ripped Amanda, ever so subtly in the videos, and now, after death.
He knows what he is doing.
He will do the same to those who expose the deception, even as he trudges his way to Hollywood fame.
The path of the deceptive is an ever growing confidence, an ever growing contempt, and a bite that inflicts much damage upon those who dare question them.
This is the path of the deceptive.
Now multiply it manyfold by one who claims to have heard from the Creator of the universe and you have a liar with ambition that has allowed him to not only blaspheme the faith he claims to uphold ("Amanda gave her life so the church could live"), but who knows that this lie is used to sell.
We look forward to the 911 call, but even this, should it and a thorough investigation not link him to Amanda's death, will not cover that which has been made evident:
A liar with ambition who now claims divine authority.
It cannot end well for anyone.
Not only does coincidence bring suspicion,
not only does the language bring suspicion,
not only does the profile of ambition bring suspicion,
but the ability to fabricate reality while employing Divinity tells us that he is capable of that which many are suspicious of.
