Psychology’s belief system is opposite what is taught in the Bible.
Psychology says: Love yourself. You need self-esteem.
Jesus says: Deny yourself. Follow Me.
The Bible says we are sinners, we need to repent, and only Jesus can change our hearts.
The psychologists say it’s our parent’s fault or our society’s fault, and by spending time and money for their services, they can help us change.
We so called Christians in America have compromised and combined the Bible and psychology to get our answers. The Bible isn’t enough. We want something more than just the Bible. And our fruit is rotten.
Today’s most prominent “Christian” Psychologist (that’s really an oxymoron—psychology is not Christian) has quite a following of folk across the nation and quite a bit of political clout in Washington DC. Jesus’ Kingdom is NOT political.
You may find these videos I’ve linked to interesting. “They” (government and business) have been using psychological techniques to manipulate the masses for years. The “Christian” psychologists are no different.

After viewing these videos, I began to wonder if we get the truth from anywhere, or if everything and everyone everywhere has an agenda to try and get me to think their way.
What does the Book say?
“…there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”—Psalm 53:3
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one…They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”—Romans 3:10, 12
“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. Therefore let no man glory in men.”—1 Corinthians 3:19–21
Doesn’t this sound like the result of years of psychologizing here in the US?
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
—2 Timothy 3:1–7
For true biblical counseling read from the Book:
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Proverbs and Psalms
