1 Timothy 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called… Paul warned Timothy to protect himself from profane and vain babblings. Vanity is something that does not have value in eternity, and as such, it is not real, it is a lie, or it is involved in lies and deceptions. There is a thing which is called “a false science.” Science in our day is considered a recognition of proven principles by scientists which are repeated by unassociated people which confirm the results by parallel experiments, always with the same results. Science is made with these scientific principles that have been formulated by investigations and research, which can be measured. To do “science” with presumptions but without research that can be repeated with the same results just is not science at all.
Psychology tries to solve life’s problems, but without the context or consideration of what God says. It is used INSTEAD OF THE BIBLE. Even “Christian Psychology” mixes the principles of psychology with the Bible, seeking biblical texts to support the principles of psychology. This is not valid. Using psychology causes the counselor to reject God and His wise counsel, giving authority instead to man’s ideas.

The Foundation of Psychology
2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.
The “science of psychology” is a study about the soul and the problems of life. Its foundation is not according to the Bible. But God has spoken about our lives, and His eternal omniscience and wisdom are the foundation of God’s counsel. Psychology is all of man. But what is the soul? It is the invisible part of the human being, but what is the difference between the soul and the spirit of a person? We are dealing with the body, the mind, the emotions, etc. of the human being. James 3:15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. (There is a “wisdom” that pretends to solve our problems, but it is not of God, but rather from demons which we must reject.)
It is crazy that psychologists declare that they are experts on matters of the soul. God gives us solutions and clarifications on spiritual matters. This topic is in the area of the Bible, of religion. Psychologists generally do away with the existence of God as a deception of the masses, and they despise the counsels and principles of God. But psychologists want to begin WITHOUT TAKING GOD INTO CONSIDERATION. They do not see the root of human problems as being in sin, or offense against God. From there, a Christian should reject and denounce psychology. There are also “psychologists” that say that they are Christians. But who better has the solutions to the human existence, man or God, man’s Creator. No psychologist is going to begin with God and end with the salvation of God, with Jesus the Savior. They offer alternatives outside of the Bible. 1 Peter 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. Faith is what you use to guide your life.
Salvation in the Bible is to be free from the presence and consequences of sin, and from the wrath of God on sin in the soul by receiving Jesus Christ as one’s Savior. Remedies for life have no meaning if you do not begin with God FIRST, and then confessing sin, and salvation is FROM SIN in the soul by receiving the Savior. But psychology begins by denying all this to build on its own foundation.
Psychology is not a True Science
1 Timothy 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
What God clarifies for us is what our reality is, that we are in a spiritual war with philosophies like psychology. Science is founded in the reality of our world (what is real). What is distinctive of science (the scientific method) is that it is a conclusion based on what has been researched, examined, and corresponds to what is real. The experiments that a scientist does in one place can be repeated anywhere and the conclusion is not valid if the results aren’t always the same. Nothing in psychology is a clean experiment with a definitive result that is always the same. To always get the same results every time no matter who does the experiment is an absolute necessity if others are to accept the conclusions. The results must be definitive (the conclusion must be obvious to anybody). Psychology is not science but presumptions, opinions, and philosophy. Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Psychology versus Psychoanalysis
We must understand psychology from its history. There were two human philosophies opposing one another, both claiming to be true science. These are psychology (by Carl Jung) and psychoanalysis (by Sigmund Freud). Psychoanalysis denies the existence of the human soul, and equally denies that God exists, as well as the world of spiritual beings that interact with humans. (They do not accept God, angels, nor demons.) Psychology accepts the “spiritual” aspect of human existence, and equally admits the world of spirit beings, but they deny God as the Supreme Being, and as who we must obey, and instead they seek help from “spirits” (which for them, they do not distinguish are angels, fallen or not.) But both deal with human problems without subjecting everything to God. They deny God’s view on sin as the foundation of all our problems, even less do they suggest that repentance and obedience to God as desired solutions for their thinking. Jung began following Freud, but later he separated from him with his own philosophy, psychology.
The True Origin of Psychology: Philemon
Isaiah 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? 20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
Leviticus 19:31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, (mediums or people who channel spirits speaking for them) neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God. Leviticus 20:6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. 27 A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.
Carl Gustav Jung was renown as an expert in the analysis of dreams, which for many people, they think that these are messages from God. Jung did not believe in God, but in “a collective conscience” within everybody. His ideas came from Philemon, a spiritual guide that taught him most of his ideas that form the principles of Psychology. Jung wanted to put every type of mysterious experience, even the occult, on a scientific plane. To Jung, mysticism is a valid thing to study and use to understand the world. God prohibits us from getting involved in this. The research of Jung, as well as his thinking revolved around the occult, and his thesis for his doctorate was on the paranormal. Catholicism also has very strong elements in mysticism, in spiritualism, and Jung was very involved in these parts of Catholicism. And all this parallels oriental mysticism. Jung followed the religion of his parents, and Jung’s parents were spiritualists, his father was a pastor in a spiritualist church. From the age of three, Jung had experiences with this spirit Philemon, and many other spirits. Jung took all these spirits as “good spirits”, and he listened to them. Isaiah asks, Isaiah 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?
Darkness versus Light
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
It is very important to understand that the ideas of Jung and psychology come from this demon, Philemon, and are opposite the truth of God. Jung taught that “good” needed “evil” so that there is a balance in the world. In other words, according to Jung, a homosexual that practices this perversion balances what others that do good, so that there is a balance or completeness in the world. Jung also thought that Jesus Christ failed in that he did not have a dark or sinful side to him so that Jesus would be complete.* So Jung believed that Christ was “imperfect” because he did not have this dark side of his character. Instead of a biblical view of good (God) and evil (Satan), Jung thought that good needed evil. Jung put a positive value on wickedness and thought that evil completed what was good because “good is incomplete.” Exactly in this concept of “being complete”, Jung thought that it was incorrect to condemn sin, evil, because evil is necessary for equilibrium between good and evil, and that things were unbalanced without evil. Obviously, this whole system is from a demon which justifies sin and rebellion against God. *Carl Jung, Neo-Gnosticism, & the MBTI — A report by Rev. Ed Hird, Past National Chair of ARM Canada.
Ying and Yang
In oriental religions, for example, the concept of ying and yang is that the good NEEDS the evil to counterbalance each other. This balance, the being “complete,” or in some way being “perfect” that they think the Bible and God does not achieve, this perfection cannot exist without that person seeking the evil within themselves. This lie of demons teaches that man cannot be “complete,” or perfect, except when they embrace the evil within themselves. In other words, they say man must sin as an absolute imperative. The Bible says that all human beings sin, and that we are wrong if we do not confess our sinful state. But God exhorts us to flee wickedness, not to embrace it and pursue it. 1 Timothy 6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. After all the talk, psychology is pushing us into more sin, removing the blame of sin, the damage sin does, the evil of sin. They try to convince us to sin and embrace it and do it.
Salvation is dependent on the action and attitude of repentance within oneself, the unilateral rejection of evil. Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out… The Bible puts the evil in our lives at the feet of our sins. Psychology tries to convince people of the opposite. Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. The final consequence is to be cast into hell. To be saved, the person must reject sin in his own life. This is the principle to understand salvation and be saved. Psychology is a doctrine of a devil, as Paul commented about it in 1 Timothy 4:1. Jung believed that sin WAS NECESSARY in some way.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
People play with sin in their lives, mixing salvation, light, with darkness and sin, but they don’t understand what salvation really is. Salvation IS FROM SIN (which is the danger), so we cannot mix salvation WITH SIN LIVING WITH THE TWO MIXED IN YOUR LIFE. All salvation is ultimately to clean yourself from the presence of sin, which includes our sanctification. Our reality is that the two are at war, one against the other.
What Fellowship does Light have with Darkness?
2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
In other words, good and evil are opposites because of their different natures.
Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Spiritism is Prohibited
(Leviticus 19:26-31; 2 Chronicles 33:6; Isaiah 47:8-11) We must insist that this philosophy of demons which proposes that darkness is acceptable, or that it is necessary, or that what God proposes is incomplete, is prohibited by Scriptures, human beings making contact or even to try to contact spirits. This is just witchcraft and is abominable in the sight of God.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (1 John 2:15-17)
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
