Description: Hubbard discusses some reasons why people don't get case gain, including overts; criticizes Christian confessions.
This subject becomes a big subject. But let’s look at it in just the framework that we’re addressing it in – is why can’t some students audit and why can some students audit and why, more germane – since this is not always at the root of auditing but more germane to the pc – why do some pc’s just never, never, never, never, never, never, never get any tone arm action?1 See?
Well, I’ve given you two sources and this was the third one. Now you think I’m going to tell you that they believe they have been wronged and you’ve got to get their overts2 off. No, if it were just that simple, I would have found it out a long time ago. But it isn’t that simple. Remember, I told you a problem – solutions are as complex as the problem and this is pretty complex. This person has been so wronged – how a thetan can be wronged is pretty hard to do – but this person’s been so wronged, that they have no longer any concept of an overt. This person cannot really handle the idea of an overt act. And that’s what’s wrong with that person.
Now the Christian already ran into this in the year yup – gup. He already ran into this and he tried to do something about it. He didn’t run into this, he had another pitch in mind. But he came down the line saying, “Repent ye, repent ye, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand and you’d better repent.” He was pulling an inversion. He wanted people to invert. 3 He wanted people to admit their guilt. And it’s interesting that amongst Middle Western Christians particularly, when you listen to their confessions and so forth, at Holy Roller meetings and so forth, all you hear is a long potpourri of things they never were courageous enough to do in their whole lives. You could ask any one of them this burning question, “Are you bragging or confessing?”
