What You'll Discover in this Episode:
The Psychologizing of the Faith and the Problem of Sin
In the last episode, we expounded and thought about the fact that Jude is saying how important it is to do battle and stand for the Word of God. Why does he say it's important? He found it necessary because, "...for certain men have crept in unnoticed who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turned the grace of our God in deludness and deny our only Lord God and and our Lord Jesus Christ."
The psychologozing of the faith or the watering down of the truth of the Word of God, especially in the counseling arena but in many other areas, we're finding that to be the case. The reality is our culture have exported this theory. Our culture has become deeply and extensively psychological. Our culture is into psychological theory because it's all about self and the independent self life and self exhaltation - the hierarchy of self-centered needs. It's invading the church. Yes, I can understand why the culture around us love psyschology because self is God when you don't have God.
PART 2: Psychologizing of Faith
Psychological theory does not deal with the problem of sin. In Romans 5:12-17, it briefly discusses the problem of sin. When sin gets psychologized, when the biblical foundation is removed, a major foundation stone gets shifted, realigned and redefined.
