The concept of sin is not recognized by modern psychology. How can a psychologist even begin to understand the human nature if the reality of sin is ignored? They can’t. The Word of God is absolutely essential to understanding the human psyche, for no other Book on the planet addresses the issue of man being a vile sinner. Psychology is sinful because it attempts to heal men’s souls without addressing the issues of sin, repentance, or God. Leaving those in search of with a moral decision. Who will you believe, the world or God.
Much of today’s psychology is rooted in the atheistic beliefs of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939)
Psychology is poisonous from it’s roots, which is atheism. Freud based his beliefs largely upon Darwin’s theoretical evolutionary process of man’s development. As a result, Freud’s work is flawed, having left out God. How can a man study the human soul without including the Creator of the soul?
Sin is the true problem in society today. What is sin? Sin is the violation of God’s Laws. 1st John 3:4… “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.” How does modern psychology deal with an alcoholic? How do they deal with a rebellious wife who is emotionally distraught? How does modern psychology deal with a homosexual? Drunkenness, rebellion, and homosexuality are all condemned as SIN in the Bible (1st Corinthians 6:10; 1st Samuel 15:23; Romans 1:24-32).
Modern psychology refuses to recognize drunkenness as sin; but rather, they call it a “chemical dependency.” Homosexuality is a morally reprehensible sin in the Word of God; but modern psychologists call it an “alternative lifestyle.” A rebellious wife may be diagnosed with hormonal imbalance, regressive anger, post-traumatic stress, clinical depression, or even a chemical-imbalance-of-the-brain; BUT no psychologist would dare cut to the chase of the matter–REBELLION IS AS THE SIN OF WITCHCRAFT! (1st Samuel 15:23)…
A call for all sinners to come to repentance, to seek God’s forgiveness and cleansing from within. The Scriptures will either keep us from sin (Psalm 119:11); or else sin will keep us from the Scriptures (John 3:20).
Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
