John MacArthur On Psychology


John MacArthur demonstrating the power of Bible-based Counseling over and against the errors of the evil unbiblical Satanist lies of modern secular Psychology and Psychiatry.

John MacArthur on the evils of Psychology:

I think it’s no exaggeration to say that the Christian counseling scene today is in total shambles. I’m not talking about true Christian counseling–that which trusts the Bible and the power of the Holy Spirit to conform a person to Christ–that kind of counseling has been successfully changing sinners since the apostolic age. I’m talking about pseudo-counseling–the attempt to fix people with a blend of secular psychological theory and the Bible. But have integrationist counselors affected any real change among evangelical Christians? Are people really fixed?

It has been sad to see so many Christians seek counsel from Christian psychotherapists who fumble around with theories developed by Sigmund Freud, Carl Rogers and B. F. Skinner. Psychology and talk therapy are so bankrupt that many are abandoning them to embrace biological psychiatry. Psychotropic medicine is the new savior. Problems that were once blamed on dysfunctional families and Id/Superego conflict are now charged to chemical imbalances and disorders.

Yesterday’s psychology and today’s psychiatry share the same fatal errors–they reject the total depravity of man due to sin; they treat the symptoms instead of the heart; and they aim for change that is not true sanctification.

In spite of obvious failure, the notion prevails within the church that psychotherapy and psychiatry are more effective agents of change–particularly in dealing with the most difficult cases–than the Holy Spirit who sanctifies. But can psychotherapy or psychiatry possibly accomplish something the Holy Spirit cannot? Can an earthly therapist achieve more than a heavenly Comforter? Is behavior modification more helpful than sanctification? Of course not.

    Psychology is a legitimate study of the human mind. There is bad psychological theory and good psychological theory. It is not a question of psychology invading Christianity, but more a question of Christians impacting the field of psychology just as they have a legitimate place impacting the business world, media, education, the arts etc. I still admire a lot about John MacArthur, but he doesn’t give the appearance of having much balance on the subject of psychology, appearing at least to dismiss out of hand a general field of study that is without a doubt, a legitimate science. Is it true that his church was sued when some of his counselors intervened into the therapy being undergone by a member of his church and they subsequently committed suicide? If this is true, then it was well deserved.
