What You'll Discover in this Episode:
As we speak about humanistic philosophical psychology we are speaking directly about what is not scientific. This type of humanistic psychology deals with moral dilemmas and the humanistic worldview that has captured a broad audience today, not only within the world but also within the church. Church, we need to wake up and see that this type of worldview has crept into the church. Scripture tells us that in the latter times that some will depart from the faith and turn to human teachings. As believers we need to be aware that God is sufficient, His Word is all that we need.
The knowledge of psychology is human understanding that we get from a fallen man. We have turned away from God and we turned to emotions or our intellect. The way of the world is now turned away from the supernatural which is God and turned to human understanding. Psychology has captured peopled and turned them away from God. You need to ask yourself as an individual, "do I know the difference between soul and spirit?". Are you able to determine what is from God and what is from man? These are questions we need to be able to answer in order to discern if we are stuck in human flesh or led by the Holy Spirit. Living in the flesh is living at enmity with God. We need to be in the Spirit and led by God. You do this by turning away from the flesh and dive into your Bible.
In this episode Pastor Jeff contrasts psychology with the Bible. We need to not live in the flesh but live in the Spirit. As biblical counselors, we must be able to differentiate the difference between soul and spirit.
