This is a great read. In recent months we have briefly discussed the topic of “Christian Psychology” in our fellowship time after church. So when I stumbled upon this article I was delighted to have such a well stated review of the subject. Written by Pastor Steven J. Cole of Flagstaff Christian Fellowship this is a fast 16 page read and is well worth the family discussion time that can follow.
Here are some of the headings he deals with in detail:
- The Christian psychology movement is built on an inadequate view of salvation.
- Christian psychology focuses people on self, not on God and His glory.
- Christian psychology denies the sufficiency of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.
- Christian psychology undermines the sufficiency and authority of God’s Word.
- Christian psychology minimizes the biblical view of sin and personal responsibility.
So while the topics are not light subject matter, the article was a great help in analyzing how we rationalize the sins we commit. But isn’t that human nature..uhm I mean sin nature itself; to rationalize sin. Go ahead, lay back on the couch, relax on the pillow and tell me once again, why do you feel you should not read this article?….That’s a very interesting observation.
