Psychotherapy

  As the "great" facilitator of 'change,' i.e., psychotherapist, i.e., seducer, deceiver, and manipulator of children, men, and women (taking the father's/Father's place), Carl Rogers stated: "We know how to change the opinions of an individual in a selected direction, without his ever becoming aware of the stimuli which changed his opinion." "We know how to influence the ... behavior of individuals by setting up conditions which provide satisfaction for needs of which they are unconscious, but which we have been able to determine." "If we have the power or authority to establish the necessary conditions, the predicted behaviors [our potential ability to influence or control the behavior of groups] will follow." "We can choose to use our growing knowledge to enslave people in ways never dreamed of before, depersonalizing them, controlling them by means so carefully selected that they will perhaps never be aware of their loss of personhood." "'Now that we know how positive reinforcement works [dialoguing opinions to a consensus, i.e., dialoguing our feelings (our carnal desires of the 'moment') to a feeling of oneness ('discovering' through dialogue the common carnal desires that we can all agree on, thereby affirming ourselves, and working together, as one, in fulfilling them, we establish our carnal desires of the 'moment,' i.e., our "self" over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, i.e., his/His restraints)], and why negative doesn't' [the father's/Father's authority to 1) give us commands and rules which go counter to and therefore restrain our carnal desires of the 'moment,' 2) reward us or bless us when we do what is right and obey, 3) chasten us when we do wrong and disobey, and 4) cast out those who disrespect i.e. who question and/or challenge his/His authority, i.e., who reject his/His restraints]... 'we can be more deliberate and hence more successful in our cultural design. We can achieve a sort of control under which the controlled [the manipulated] though they are following a code much more scrupulously [more government regulations and oversight (sight based management)] than was ever the case under the old system, nevertheless feel free. They are doing what they want to do, not what they are forced to do. That's the source of the tremendous power of positive reinforcement—there's no restrain and no revolt. By a careful design, we control not the final behavior, but the inclination to behavior—the motives, the desires, the wishes. The curious thing is that in that case the question of freedom never arises." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy) Emphasis in original. God has warned us of such praxis. Psychology is based upon, i.e., 'justifies' the deceitfulness and wickedness of man's heart—why man so readily identifies with it and embraces it, being full of it, i.e., full of "self"—loving the pleasures of the 'moment,' hating restraint (and the restrainer) when it (he/He) gets in the way.

G. B. Chisholm, the first Director-General of the World Health Origination under the U.N., wrote, regarding the use of psychotherapy to 'change' the world, i.e., to 'liberate' children from the father's/Father's authority: "For many generations we have bowed our necks to the yoke of the conviction of sin. We have swallowed all manner of poisonous certainties fed us by our parents, our Sunday and day care school teachers, our politicians, our priests, our newspapers, and others in a vested interest in controlling us."  "'Thou shalt not become as gods, knowing good and evil,' good and evil with which to keep children under control, with which to prevent free thinking, with which to impose local [familial] and national loyalties, and with which to blind children to their glorious intellectual heritage." "The mature person ... has the qualities of adaptability and compromise."  "Is the family, the school, or the church teaching in that direction?"  "The re-interpretation and eventually eradication of the concept of right and wrong which has been the basis of child training, the substitution of intelligent and rational thinking for faith in the certainty of the old people, these are the belated objectives of practically all effective psychotherapy."  "Would it not be sensible to stop imposing our local prejudices and faiths on children and give them all sides of every question so that in their own good time they may have the ability to size things up, and make their own decisions."  "If the race is to be freed from its crippling burden of good and evil it must be psychiatrists who take the original responsibility."  "The fact is that most psychiatrists and psychologists and many other respectable people have escaped from these moral chains and are able to observe and think freely."  "Psychiatry must now decide what is to be the immediate future of the human race.  No one else can."  (G. B. Chisholm, Reestablishment of Peacetime Society: The Responsibility of Psychiatry)

"For this cause [because they "did not like to retain God in their knowledge"] God gave them up unto vile affections [let them have what they wanted, i.e., the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' they "lusted" after, to their own demise]:" Romans 1:21, 25 "And for this cause [because men, as "children of disobedience," 'justify' themselves, i.e., their love of "self" and the world, i.e., their love of the pleasures of the 'moment' over and therefore against the Father's authority] God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie [that pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will]: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth [in the Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ], but had pleasure in unrighteousness [in their "self" and the pleasures of the 'moment,' which the world stimulates]." 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12
