Biblical Psychology: Its Rise and Fall

From time to time I have asked certain individuals to write a guest article to shed light on the abuses of psychiatry and how the church surrendered its biblical authority for the preservation of the soul. Also, to shed light on how the church no longer trust in the sufficiency of Holy Scripture, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit for biblical counseling.

Biblical Psychology: Its Rise and Fall

In the year 1855, Franz Julius Delitzsch, one of the premier (or leading) biblical scholars of the 19th century, wrote a first edition, 500 page, Pastoral Theology textbook entitled: A System of Biblical Psychology.  Sigmund Freud was born one year later; Carl Gustav Jung was born 20 years later; and Wilhelm Wundt, who is often considered to be the “principal founder of modern psychology” did not establish his first psychological laboratory for another 23 years.

In his opening chapter of A System of Biblical Psychology, Delitzsch traces the long and valued history of “Psychology” within the life of the Church. His very first (or very opening) sentence makes this proclamation: “Biblical Psychology is no science of yesterday it is one of the oldest sciences of the Church.” (Delitzsch 3)

After making this amazing opening pronouncement, Delitzsch then begins to wonderfully survey the abundance of biblical and theological contributions, made over the many centuries, within this specific doctrinal field of psychological study within the Church, from Justin Martyr and Tertullian, St. Augustine and Gregory the Great, through to St. Thomas Aquinas, the Reformation period and then finally up and to his own time in the 19th century.

Former Chemist Attacked

Former Chemist Attacked for Telling People to Get Off Antidepressants in 2015 – SANTA FE, N.M., Jan. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Shane Ellison, a former pharmaceutical chemist tells readers to get off antidepressants.

“When I worked for a drug giant as a young chemist, Prozac (fluoxetine) was being marketed as a ‘happy pill.’ Newsweek hailed it as, ‘A Breakthrough Drug for Depression.’ Sales raked in enough profit to solve world hunger for a hundred years. Yet, in-house studies proved they didn’t work. Obfuscated from the public, the drug was shoved down the throats of millions, and still is,” wrote Ellison, who is known as “The People’s Chemist” because his books contain scientific evidence that anyone can understand, to help people get off their risky drugs so they can live a healthier more active life.

The Three Viruses

Never in my life have I seen three viruses descend upon the planet all at the same time. Is there any hope for humanity? Only for the true Christian is their hope, because no matter what happens at least he is assured of eternal life free from all the pain that’s coming upon the world. I am afraid that the coming Antichrist and his New World Order will use each of these viruses as a means to their end to establish total control over all of humanity. These viruses will unleash an unimaginable fear to have ever fallen upon the entire world. No, this is not a plot for an upcoming horror movie nor is it the vain imagination of a would be prophet. Perhaps it’s only reality in the making that simply needs to be unmasked. Only time will prove or disprove what I am about to write. The order in which these viruses are unveiled should in no way elevate their importance or the magnitude of their destruction. What is important however is that they all work in tandem to frighten the entire world into total submission to its new world leaders. Continue reading The Three Viruses

In the Spotlight with Rev Daniel W Blair

Podcast ImageWhen did we start referring our brothers and sisters to the world for counseling? When did Christian counselors stop believing that His Word had everything we need for life and godliness? When did they start going to the world for their guidance and approved methodology for counseling? Psychiatry and psychology have consistently asserted that people should be “salvaged” from the chains of religious upbringing and moral restraint. However, studies show positive moral and emotional benefits for those with religious faith. Churches and parishioners taking back control of their religions from psychiatry and psychology will accomplish the return to a morally and spiritually strong society.
