There is Nothing Christian About Psychology:
God is the Solution, Answer, & Source of Comfort
Beloved of God, What ails you? Are you grieving? Struggling with sinfulness? Wounded? Tempted? In a fiery trial? Brokenhearted?
“Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.” Isaiah 51:1
e us (spirit, heart, soul, body) from the dust of the earth and breathed into us His breath of life? (Gen. 1:26-28) Can He heal and comfort us? What does His Word say?
HE PERSONALLY COMFORTS US IN ALL OUR AFFLICTIONS
"Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ." 2 Corinthians 1:2-5
"Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle (Holy Scriptures). Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work." 2 Thessalonians 2:14-17
HE GAVE US HIS WORD TO COMFORT US
"For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope." Romans 15:4
HIS EMINENT RETURN COMFORTS US
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
GOOD NEWS: The "so great salvation" accomplished for us by Christ's one sacrifice and continual intercession (Jn. 19:30; Heb. 2:3; 7:25; 10:12), is all the believer ever needs to appropriate for all desired comfort, healing, deliverance from addiction, sins, etc. Let no one fool you friend, Jesus Christ, the eternal God, did a complete work. He failed in no way in His mission to redeem mankind, spirit, soul and body (Lk 4:18; 1 Jn 3:8; Acts 10:38). He crushed the head of the serpent (Gen. 3:15) and frees His children of every affliction as they call upon Him in truth (Gal. 5:1; Ps 34:17,19; 97:10; Acts 26:18; Lk 10:17-20, etc.)
"The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of ALL their troubles." Psalms 34:17
"Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them ALL." Psalms 34:19
Why in the world would a true born again Christian (the only kind of Christian) ever seek help in any other direction than upward - in the LORD and His Word? “Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin: That walk to go down into Egypt (the world system), and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt! Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.” (Isaiah 30:1-3) Here we see the LORD warning His very own people that He will judge all of them who seek help from the world system. Doing such is spiritual adultery.
“Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalms 103:1-5
Psychology is of the world and not of God. Such a faulty and limiting philosophy is not the answer to man's problems nor is its diagnosis of man correct. So-called "Christian psychology" and its deluded proponents call the Almighty a liar by daring to introduce their subversive theories and methods to band aid the problems of the unlearned and naive who erroneously seek their help.
Please read the following words carefully. Do these words need explanation?
“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
How could psychology possibly be Christian or of God since it didn’t start with God or godly men nor is it even remotely based upon what the LORD gave us in His Holy Word? Sin is man’s problem (not lack of self-esteem). Sin separates men from the holiness of the Almighty and relationship with Him and only the LORD can solve that root issue through the blood of His only begotten Son whom He so graciously gave to redeem us (Gen. 6:5; Isa. 59:1-2; Rom. 3:23-25; 5:9; 6:23). Sin: Mans Core Problem
Since Christ is our perfect Salvation, there is therefore no need for extra-Biblical mere theories which originated from godless, sinful men - men who are now burning in hell if they didn't repent before it was too late. Psychology is the religion of Satan friend, to rob us of the reward Christ died and rose again to grant every one of His disciples. Paul warns:
"Beware lest any man spoil (rob) you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth al
l the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: " Colossians 2:8-10
MAKE NO MISTAKE: There is no such thing as a "Christian Psychologist". There is no reference to such in Scripture. "Christians" who attempt to utilize psychology in any form are greatly deceived at best and should be corrected and led to believe in the total and complete sufficiency of the blood of Christ, the eternal Word of God (Holy Scriptures), and the power and presence of the Holy Ghost resident in each and every born again disciple of Christ. “God is love” and He gave us “all things that pertain unto life and godliness” in His precious Word and commanded us to “forget not all his benefits.” (Ps. 103: 2; 2 Pet. 1:3-4; 1 Jn. 4:7-8).
