What You'll Discover in this Episode:
The way we approach the Bible determines our worldview. There are a lot of Christians that believe psychology is above Scripture in counseling. It's true that people have been helped by theories and concepts, but when we take man's ideas and value them above the Bible we have made our worldview cloudy. We need to create a better worldview with the Bible as the foundation and psychology as a secondary humanistic thought. Although man has achieved a lot since creation, God is still sitting on the throne. We cannot say that psychology should be more treasured than Scripture. God has given us all we need for life in His Word.
Because psychotherapy deals with the meaning of life and the value of life in behavior, it is religious in nature. When you see the people promoting psychology they are religiously using their ideas to shape morals and values. When psychology collides with Scripture, it is as though two religions are being forced together. Although some would call psychology scientific, it does not deal with science. Psychology deals with morals, behaviors, and ideas to shape minds to make them "better", so to speak. God doesn't need our help, God has it figured out.
In this episode Pastor Jeff sticks to his convictions as he shares the danger of mixing psychology with the Bible. It is trying to join two religions together and it just doesn't work. Feel free to chime in on the comments below. Pastor Jeff wants to connect with you.
