What's Wrong With Psychology?

Proverbs 21:30, “There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.”

By David J. Stewart

I triple-dog dare you to look up the word "sin" in any psychology dictionary. Here's a Google search for "psychology dictionary"... Good luck trying to find a definition for the word "sin"...


You WON'T find it! You see, the concept of sin is not recognized by modern psychology. How can a psychologist even begin to understand the human nature if the reality of sin is ignored? They can't. The Word of God is absolutely essential to understanding the human psyche, for no other Book on the planet addresses the issue of man being a vile sinner. Psychology is sinful because it attempts to heal men's souls without addressing the issues of sin, repentance, or God. Psychology is of the Devil.

So what do modern psychologists base their beliefs on, if not the Bible? To no surprise, much of today's psychology is rooted in the atheistic beliefs of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939)...

Photo to Right: Atheist and Evolutionist, Sigmund Freud (who commit suicide in his old age)

The father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud is best known for his tendency to trace nearly all psychological problems back to sexual issues. Although only parts of his theory of psychosexual development are still accepted by mainstream psychologists, Freud's theory of the Oedipal Complex has become a cultural icon nevertheless. Other now-famous Freudian innovations include the therapy couch, the use of talk therapy to resolve psychological problems, and his theories about the unconscious -- including the role of repression, denial, sublimation, and projection. Initially a Viennese medical doctor, Freud was trained in neurology, and he originally drew inspiration from the work of Charles Darwin which explained behavior in evolutionary terms. But Freud's introduction to hypnotherapy and to the stunning revelations it elicited from mentally ill patients led him to develop a revolutionary theory of the mind and of the dynamics underlying human behavior. While Freud's theories have always been controversial, his work forms a major portion of the foundations of modern psychology, with considerable modification by later theorists.

Freud's work forms a MAJOR PORTION of the foundation of modern psychology.  Sigmund Freud was an avowed atheist, who believed in the evolutionary process of life.  Freud was a devout Christ-rejecter.  Freud is quoted as saying...

"Neither in my private life nor in my writings, have I ever made a secret of being an out and out unbeliever."

As with many psychologists today, Freud, the father of modern psychology, commit suicide in 1939...

He was 83 years old when he asked his doctor to end his life, and died of a physician-assisted morphine overdose in London on September 23, 1939.

 Of course, Sigmund Freud is a big hit today with homosexuals...

"...he accepted the idea that all human beings come into the world as potential bisexuals."

Are you starting to see what is deathly wrong with psychology? How could modern psychology, that is largely based upon the work of an avowed atheist, even begin to understand the concept of sin? It cannot! Sin is completely ignored by the occult, New Age, Wicca, psychology, psychiatry, et cetera. 

Proverbs 19:21, “There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.”

“Insanity because we're in sin!”
—Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982), from the sermon “Steps In The Degeneration Of Our Nation.”

Sin: The Root Problem of Society

Sin is the true problem in society today. What is sin? Sin is the violation of God's Laws. 1st John 3:4... "Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law." How does modern psychology deal with an alcoholic? How do they deal with a rebellious wife who is emotionally distraught? How does modern psychology deal with a homosexual? Drunkenness, rebellion, and homosexuality are all condemned as SIN in the Bible (1st Corinthians 6:10; 1st Samuel 15:23; Romans 1:24-32). 

Modern psychology refuses to recognize drunkenness as sin; but rather, they call it a "chemical dependency." Homosexuality is a morally reprehensible sin in the Word of God; but modern psychologists call it an "alternative lifestyle." A rebellious wife may be diagnosed with hormonal imbalance, regressive anger, post-traumatic stress, clinical depression, or even a chemical-imbalance-of-the-brain; BUT no psychologist would dare cut to the chase of the matter--REBELLION IS AS THE SIN OF WITCHCRAFT! (1st Samuel 15:23).

Society is royally messed up today because people REFUSE to repent of sin. The greatest sin of all is unbelief, for it is the only sin which can keep a person out of Heaven (John 3:36). There can be no healing of the mind or soul apart from making peace with God (Romans 5:1), and that can only happen through the precious blood of Jesus Christ that washes our sins away (1st John 1:7; 1st Peter 1:18,19). Do you think your psychologist is going to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with you, and tell you how you can KNOW, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that you can go to Heaven when you die? 

No, they surely won't. They can't, because most are atheists themselves. All psychologists work closely with psychiatrists, the only difference being that psychiatrists are licensed to prescribe drugs, but psychologists aren't. Most of the time, you will be prescribed some sort of drug when you seek help from a psychiatrist. If you go to a psychologist, they will likely refer you to a psychologist. It's all a big scam if you ask me. 

The ROOT problem of mankind was, is, and always will be his love for sin (John 3:20). 

What's Right with Psychology?

Perhaps a better question than the title of this article is... "What's right with psychology?" Modern psychology is rooted in Humanism and the unproven theory of Evolution. Sigmund Freud was strongly influenced by Charles Darwin...

"...he originally drew inspiration from the work of Charles Darwin which explained behavior in evolutionary terms."

SOURCE: http://www.nndb.com/people/736/000029649/

Although Darwin attended church in the earlier days of his life, and then quit, it is unmistakably clear that he had churchianity without Christianity. Charles Darwin was a Christ-rejecting, Bible-denier, who stated that he could...

"...hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true; for if so the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my Father, Brother and almost all my best friends, will be everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable doctrine."

SOURCE: Darwin, Charles (1887), in Darwin, F, The life and letters of Charles Darwin, including an autobiographical chapter; London: John Murray (The Autobiography of Charles Darwin)

From it's roots, modern psychology has it's origins in atheism and the unproven theories of evolution. Psychology is effectively synonymous with Modernism, worldliness, Humanism, Evolution, and the occult...

"The greatest aspect of holistic health is its recognition of the role played by mind in health. "Mind is omnipotent" said Freud..."

SOURCE: http://www.circlesoflight.com/g-kumar/kumar1.shtml, by G. Kumar, Pranic Therapy -
Part 1: Introduction to Pranic Therapy and Rise of Holistic Health

Is that what the Word of God teaches ... that the Mind is Omnipotent? Freud is wrong! Does not Jeremiah 17:9 declare... "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" The only thing "omnipotent" about mankind is our ability and tendency to sin. We are all stumbling failures apart from the salvation which God offers to us through Jesus Christ. "Heart" is the Bible refers to man's subconscious mind--and our innermost self is certainly saturated with sinfulness (Romans 3:23). This is the sin-nature, another term you'll never find in modern psychology. If there is no God, then there need be no morality, nor absolutes to live by.

Concerning the monster of television in America, Brother Lester Roloff said...

“The Devil's got a way of taking people's brains out and they never know it, and a man without any brains is in bad shape!”

—Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982), from the sermon “Steps In The Degeneration Of Our Nation.”

There is nothing correct about modern psychology. Psychology is poisonous from it's roots, which is atheism. Freud based his beliefs largely upon Darwin's theoretical evolutionary process of man's development. As a result, Freud's work is flawed, having left out God. How can a man study the human soul without including the Creator of the soul? (John 1:10).

Psychology, Sexual Immorality, and New Age Occultism

Everywhere we go nowadays, we are seeing the yin-yang symbol of the occult (pictured to right). The symbol itself dates back at least to the fourth century B.C., and has been identified with the Eastern philosophical religions of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism. In the Western world it has long been adopted into the symbolism of myth, magic, astrology, and witchcraft. The yin/yang symbol is quite appropriate today for Humanists, New Agers, secular educators, psychologists, witches, Satanists, et cetera. As Michael Tierra, a proponent of the yin/yang theory, states:

"The Yin/Yang theory is a teaching method and does not define anything absolute.'' There are seven laws concerning the yin/yang, one of which is: "2. Everything changes."

This is an important item to notice. The idea that "everything changes" does not agree with the Bible. Hebrews 13:8 tells us that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He doesn't change. James 1:17 also states... "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." Malachi 3:6 tells us, "I am the Lord, I CHANGE NOT." God is immutable, i.e., He cannot change, because He is a Holy (morally perfect) God. 

The New Age Movement looks favourably on homosexuality and immorality. One particular group that knows the sexual implications of the yin/yang, and intentionally uses it as their official symbol, is The Sex Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS). This group promotes extensive sex education in schools. SIECUS Position Statements reveal the following:

"It is the position of SIECUS that contraceptive services should be available to all--including minors who should enjoy the same rights of free and independent access to... contraceptive care as do others... It is the position of SIECUS that the use of explicit sexual materials (sometimes referred to as pornography) can serve a variety of important needs in the lives of countless individuals..."

Another group using the yin/yang (knowingly or unknowing) is the Girls Scouts. On page 66 of the Girl Scout Badges and Signs book, the yin/yang symbol is used to represent the World in My Community proficiency badge. In the Junior Girl Scout Handbook, yoga exercises are explained. The theme for their 1987 program was "The Year of Magic." 

Modern society is absolutely saturated with demonic influences, from occult New Age to Harry Potter's witchcraft.  Psychology is rooted in the same Satanic principles. Here's a quote from a leading psychology website, psychology.suite.com, from none other than miss New Age herself, Oprah Winfrey...

Oprah Reveals How Energy Flows Where Your Attention Goes

© Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen  |  Feb 9, 2007

Oprah Winfrey shared The Secret & showed how to achieve your goals. Here it is in a nutshell: all you need to know about The Secret book & the Law of Attraction.  The Secret on the Oprah Winfrey Show is all about the Law of Attraction, which is the most powerful law in the universe... According to the Secret on the Oprah show, the law of attraction is the law by which we're creating our lives... Fears, doubts, and worries are often unconscious. Spiritual growth means becoming more aware of who you are. You're consciously and unconsciously sending out orders into the universe, and you'll get what you order... Do something every day towards achieving your dreams – because action is the key, according to the Law of Attraction and The Secret on the Oprah Show!

SOURCE: http://psychology.suite101.com/article.cfm/the_secret

It appears that Oprah is out-to-lunch in the metaphysical realm, i.e., she's nuts! No wonder the Bible warns in 1st John 4:1... "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." How do you "try" (i.e., test) a spirit? You test a spirit the same way you'd test any doctrine, practice, music, etc... with the Word of God. How does Oprah's teachings measure up in comparison to the Bible?  There's no mention of a "secret law of attraction" in the Bible. She even calls her heresy, the most powerful law in the universe. Nonsense! The Law of God is the most powerful Law in the universe!!! Oprah is wrong, as usual. 

Oprah Winfrey influences MILLIONS of American women for evil, receiving upwards of 20,000,000 viewers daily. One of her biggest show appearances is Dr. Phil, a psychologist, who openly supports homosexuality and abortion groups. Millions of Americans look to "Dr. Phil" for answers to their life's problems, but they ought to be looking to the Word of God instead.

Pat Robertson's CBN Promotes New Age Psychologists!

Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) promotes and recommends ailing Christian leaders to William Gaultiere (http://www.soulshepherding.org), a psychologist, who suggests $130 counseling fee to help pastors and other Christians who are having emotional problems in their life. I looked over Gaultiere's website, which offers a ton of lame so-called spiritual guidance and teachings, but the words “sin” and “sinner” aren't found. If THE TRUTH about sin is ignored, then Mr. Gaultiere is teaching New Age heresy, which also ignores the reality of sin.

For anyone to teach “spirituality” without mentioning the fact and remedy for sin (the blood of Jesus, 1st Peter 1:18-19)  is teaching New Age heresy. Modern heathen psychology is rooted in New Age philosophies. The father of modern-day psychology, Sigmund Freud, went and committed suicide. I wouldn't give you a dime for modern psychology. Every psychologist is trained in atheistic, humanistic, and evolutionistic universities. They are preacher's cemeteries!

I also noticed that the Biblical Gospel is NOT found anywhere on their website.

In this apostate and faithless generation, it it not surprising that Christians are flocking to psychologists trained in heathenistic, evolutionistic, humanistic, and atheistic universities for emotional help. 2nd Timothy 1:7, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Psychotherapy is not God's answer to sin

The Bible gives us an example in the life of King David in the Old Testament. David stole a man's wife and then murdered her husband in a conspiracy to cover-up his sins. David later repented at the preaching of God's man, Nathan. In Psalm 51:1-10 we have God's remedy for sin...

David acknowledged his transgressions as sins, and sought forgiveness from God, asking God to cleanse him from all sin:

Psalm 51:1-4, “Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. ”

David desired to be clean within, to be righteous in the eye's of God:

Psalm 51:7-10, “Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.  Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”

David memorized Scriptures to help him overcome sin in his life:

Psalm 119:11, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”

David didn't commit those sins anymore. Thus, we learn from the Bible that there is a call for all sinners to come to repentance, to seek God's forgiveness and cleansing from within. The Scriptures will either keep us from sin (Psalm 119:11); or else sin will keep us from the Scriptures (John 3:20).

I am against modern psychology, because it is an agendacized religion intended to lead people into New Age philosophies; totally ignoring the reality of sin, placing no emphasis upon being born-again by miracle of God, nor of the critically important Doctrine of Christ which is the foundation of Biblical Christianity (1st Corinthians 3:11).

The biggest problem with modern psychology is that it totally ignores the reality of sin and the evil nature of mankind. God hates when people combine secular demonic psychology with the Bible, which amounts to Psychoheresy!

William Gaultiere, Ph.D. is a Psychologist specializing in “Christian Soul Care” since 1986. Bill and his wife Kristi (a Marriage and Family Therapist) have a donor-supported ministry to pastors and leaders called Soul Shepherding. In counseling, spiritual mentoring, seminars, and retreats Bill and Kristi help people to connect deeply with Christ in ways that facilitate soul transformation. At Bill and Kristi’s webstie, SoulShepherding.org, you will find articles, prayers, and pictures to nourish your soul in God.

The hope of the world is Hell, fire and damnation preaching; not spiritual seminars! Jesus commanded us to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES in John 5:39. None of these apostates teaches soul-winning (Proverb 11:30).

Bill and Krista Gaultiere Teach New Age Mediation, Occultism, and Chanted Prayers

The SoulShepherding.org website sounds completely New Age to me. There is no invitation to receive Christ as one's personal Savior, no teaching of the Doctrine of Christ, no call to repentance, et cetera. Anyone who claims to be helping people in the spiritual realm is treading on holy ground. We need to expose these imposters!

On their website, Bill Gaultiere and his wife Kristi claim to help people...

 “connect deeply with Christ in ways that facilitate soul transformation.”

SOURCE: Bible Study and Theology Index: CBN.com Spiritual Life

“In ways that facilitate soul transformation”? Huh? How many different ways are there to “connect” to Christ? These people scare me. Many of the writings on their website are written in 3rd person, as dead chants commonly recited in the Catholic Church. This is NOT Biblical Christianity.

On the front of their website it states:

A Ministry of Soul Care And Spiritual Mentoring;

SOURCE: http://www.soulshepherding.org/about/foundational-values/

Since they claim to be mentoring people spiritually, caring for the souls of others; and they are receiving hundreds of web visitors per day; we must try the spirits to see if they are of God as 1st John 4:1 commands.

In the following article on their website, titled, God's Word to Me, they teach people to doing a breathing exercise while chanting this prayer...

Let me prayer poem based on Psalm 19 help you to breathe in and out the name that is above all names…

God’s Word to Me

Jesus… You are God’s Son shining in the heavens

Jesus… I smile in your light


Jesus… You are my Bridegroom coming for me

Jesus… I hold you in my heart


Jesus… You are my Champion rejoicing to run your course

Jesus… I follow you


Jesus… You are God’s Law restoring souls

Jesus… I study and obey you


Jesus… You are more precious than gold

Jesus… I give up all for you


Jesus… You are sweeter than honey

Jesus… I delight in you


Jesus… You are God’s Word to me

Jesus… I love to speak your name

Ladies and gentleman, that is 100% pure demonic CATHOLICISM!!!

Instead of teaching people to get alone with God and pray from the heart, they provide recited prayers as the Catholics do, chanting dead repetitious words they Jesus condemned in Matthew 6:7, “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.”

These are the psychotherapists that Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) are referring troubled ministers and Christian leaders to for spiritually help and guidance!!! The truth is that Christian leaders who are weak enough to fall for this are being mentored into the Catholic Church, New Age philosophies; and are being inoculated from THE TRUTH of God's Word. Our beloved Savior told us in John 5:39 to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES!

Just like Contemporary Music music {CCM) singers and groups, these imposters don't tell anyone how to be saved! The Gospel should be in plain view for everyone to see; but it's not. Hell is a real place, with real fire, where real people die a second death and are tormented in real pain for all eternity. Why prey tell me don't all these professed CCM singers, ecumenical ministers, so-called Christian psychologists, and all the rest of them, PREACH THE GOSPEL. The Gospel is so simple; but the Devil has gone to extreme lengths to BLIND THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT (2nd Corinthians 4:4), to hinder them from finding THE TRUTH of the Gospel and being saved.

Religious Humanism Has Replaced Christianity In Many Churches Today

Any attempt to spiritually improve man's nature without the new birth in Christ Jesus is religious humanism. The following is an excellent description of what RELIGIOUS HUMANISM is. Please understand that these words are written by an unsaved Unitarian Universalist, go figure! Murry is an admitted humanist as well. Here is exactly what religious humanism is and you'll likely recognize it right away, as it is being taught everywhere these days instead of Christianity...

Religious humanism is a life stance that exults in being alive in this unimaginably vast and breathtakingly beautiful universe and that finds joy and satisfaction in contributing to human betterment. Without a creed but with an emphasis on reason, compassion, community, nature, and social responsibility, it is a way of living that answers the religious and spiritual needs of people today.

A new humanism is emerging among Unitarian Universalists, a religious humanism informed by cultural developments and recent discoveries in the natural and human sciences and grounded in the larger context of religious naturalism, a religious humanism that offers depth, meaning, and purpose without sacrificing intellectual honesty or the spiritual dimension.

SOURCE: uuworld.org : the emerging religious humanism

Any attempt to better or improve humanity by bypassing the Gospel is humanism. If it's a spiritual concept, then it's religious humanism. Biblical Christianity means a new birth by obeying the Gospel. We obey the good news (the Gospel) by believing on Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God Who died, was buried and rose from the dead three days later. That's it. Acts 16:30-31 says the way to be saved is to BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!!! It's that simple. But don't ADD anything or else it's false plan of salvation like Roman Catholicism (they add keeping the seven sacraments).

Beware of any spiritual teachings that leave out the Word of God. If someone is teaching about spiritual matters and never mention the Bible, run away. Colossians 2:8 says to beware (be on guard, look) against worldly philosophies and manmade traditions that spoil (sinfully lead men astray) from Jesus Christ!

What this Faithless Generation Needs is Biblical Preaching!

Titus 1:3 teaches that God “hath in due times manifested his Word THROUGH PREACHING, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour.” God deliver us from psychologists! I am not criticizing nor condemning Mr. Gaultiere, I am simply saying that people's problems are because of sin. You give God your heart, and He'll comb the kinks out of your head.

The Bible warned us that false teachers would creep into our churches UNAWARES (Jude 1:4). Satan is doing this by convincing churches that they need Christian leaders who have degrees in secular psychology. No you don't! All across America, churches are calling pastors to their pulpits who have degrees in modern heathen psychology. This is evil. No wonder today's churches are in such a mess. Modern psychology is of the Devil, ignoring the reality of sin (a term they don't even recognize).

The answer is not reformation, rehabilitation, education, nor legislation; but regeneration. Ye must be born-again (John 3:7)!

“Old-fashioned, Spirit-filled, Christ-honoring, sin-hating, soul-winning, Bible preaching! It is the hope of the church! It is the hope of the nation! It is the hope of the world!”Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001)
