Psychology and the Church (Pt. 1/6)

March 25, 2014

Subtitled “Critical Questions, Crucial Answers”

FOR NEARLY TWO THOUSAND YEARS prior to the rise of modern psychiatry and psychotherapy, the church has ministered to believers experiencing mental, emotional, and behavioral problems by using the teachings of the Scriptures and in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Contemporary Christianity’s embrace of psychology, then, raises an important question: Was there an insufficiency on the part of God’s Word and His Holy Spirit during those two millennia that made it necessary for the church to turn to modern psychotherapy in order to more effectively address a Christian’s problems of living?

Crucial answers to that question will be the focus of this program, as we consider the influence of psychological counseling upon the church. In the history of contemporary Christendom, no secular enterprise has had such a profound influence on Christianity as has psychological counseling. The critical question raised by these developments is: Have they been helpful or harmful to the body of Christ? T.A. McMahon, co-author of The Seduction of Christianity, is your host for this ground-breaking documentary. Featuring perspectives and insights of both Christian and secular experts including Martin and Deidre Bobgan, Tana Dineen, and Dave Hunt, this powerful presentation exposes the roots—and results—of Christianity’s embrace of the beliefs of Freud, Jung, Rogers, Maslow, and others.

WIDE IS THE GATE

March 7, 2014

A look into the invasion of the old New Age Movement in today’s Post Modern Church. Today’s new brand of Christianity has a different gospel and is targeting thousands of the younger generation with a so-called hip, cool, experiential spirituality, much of which is embracing the mysticism of Roman Catholicism with its ecumenical philosophy of uniting people from all faiths to work together and bring about a new world of peace and harmony. This notion dovetails with the heart of New Age thinking and the utopian ideals of many world religions who all await their religious leaders and dreams of world domination.

The dangerous result of this new spirituality in the church is bringing about the rise of today’s “Christianized” occultism. It’s stretching its tentacles around the souls of unsuspecting youth, setting them up for the lie that subjective emotions of “power” and “experience” are “feelings” to be held higher than an objective walk in the Christian Faith, based in Truth found in the Pure Word of God. The Holy Bible is presented as unattainable truth: “stuffy”, “dry” and “churchy”

Through modern marketing techniques and business management skills a global agenda of faith, commerce and government is being orchestrated for churches to partner with other faiths for world peace and unity. This man made utopia will usher in the reign of Antichrist and his kingdom, preceding the coming of the True Jesus Christ and the True Kingdom of God on earth.

 

Christ is the foundation to Christianity

February 14, 2014

Christ is the foundation to Christianity; & Freud is the foundation to psychology. Many different groups & teachings have sprang from the teachings of Christ, and so it is w/ Freud also.

…If its shrinks are its priests & it is a religion of the state, just think about how your tax dollars support this religion in many ways.

While Christ as a foundation has proven to be a solid rock, Freud has proven to be shifting sands, and yet he remains the foundation to state education & curriculums (like values clarification) & counselors, our govt.’s Dept. of Mental Health & Dept. of Social Services, our prison & court psychologists, and even the counseling of thousands of our Christian ministers. The Amer. Assoc. of Pastoral Counselors, with over 3,000 protestant pastors & Cath. Clergy as members, is based on Freud’s psychoanalysis. (By the way, it was minister/33rd degree Freemason Norman Vincent Peale in the ‘30’s who brought psychoanalysis & Christian counseling together.) While Christ’s teachings have stood the test of time but are banned from our schools, the values clarification system was adopted by Amer. schools while unproven & only a few years old.
.
One of the central teachings of Christ is to love your neighbor as yourself. Freud taught that this was impossible, & that agape love was needless self-sacrifice. Instead of loving one’s neighbor, Freud believed that sober thinking meant that the neighbor had a far more “claim to my hostility & even my hatred.”(Freud. Civilization & Its Discontents, NY: W.W. Norton, 1961, p. 67)

….the foundation to the “social science” that is used to make certain individuals to be experts who are assigned almost godlike power…power like the power to banish anyone to a medieval-like torture dungeon called a mental hospital. The power to decide if someone is to be labeled w/ some crazy label. Is it any surprise that so many of these shrinks have been Illum. members & have participated in trauma-based total mind control?
.
It would be ridiculous to claim that psychology doesn’t have some proven truths. Unfortunately, the unproven theories & dogmas of psychoanalysis & psychology are woven into Amer. culture & thought. Many people today no longer have a coherent unified worldview, but grab whatever is handy to use for the moment from whatever they see in the moment to use. Free men need to be responsible, & not just lazily grab whatever thinking comes along.
