Psychotherapies and their underlying psychologies constitute religion rather than science. In attempting to change the inner man, they intrude into God’s territory. They contradict and interfere with God’s means of transforming the inner man. By offering various other means of change, they subvert the Gospel and bypass the Cross and the resurrected life. Because they are man-made, humanistic religions, psychotherapies are religions of works. Paul urged believers to walk in Christ and have nothing to do with worldly means of growth and change (Colossians:2:6-8).
The Lord Himself is the Christian’s source for living and confronting [life’s] problems. The Bible gives the only accurate understanding of why man is the way he is and how he is to change. The Lord and His Word provide all that is necessary for life and godliness (2 Peter:1:2-4).
