The Curse of Psychology
(Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy)


Dean Gotcher

"... the hatred against patriarchal suppression—a ‘barrier to incest,' ... the desire (for the sons) to return to the motherculminates in the rebellion of the exiled sons, the collective killing and devouring of the father, and the establishment of the brother clan,"  (Herbart Marcuse explaining Freud's historiography in his book, Eros and Civilization: a psychological inquiry into Freud)

"Freud noted that patricide and incest are part of man's deepest nature."  (Irvin Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy)

"The child, contrary to appearance, is the absolute, the rationality of the relationship; he is what is enduring and everlasting, the totality which produces itself once again as such [once 'liberated' from the father's authority]."   (George Hegel, System of Ethical Life)

"And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable."  "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths."  Isaiah 3:4-5, 12  "Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein."  Jeremiah 6:16   "... and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death."  Mark 13:12

"Cursed is the man who trust in man [trusting in man's counseling] and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD."  "Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is." Jeremiah 17:5, 7  "And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Luke 16:5

Sigmund Freud built his foundation (for psychology) upon the rebellious sons, i.e., "the children of disobedience" who the father cast out of the family because of their acts (praxis) of abomination, i.e. for their incestuous practices, who returned and killed (and ate, i.e. annihilated) the father, 'liberating' the praxis of incest within the family ('justifying' abomination within the nation, i.e. establishing the child's carnal nature, i.e. man's sinful nature, i.e. "human nature" over and against doing the father's will, i.e. doing what is right and not doing what is wrong, i.e.,  righteousness).  The scriptures are clear regarding the nature of man ("human nature") and those who lust after and worship it.  "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;..."  Romans 3:23 "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;...." Isaiah 64:6  "There is none righteous, no, not one:..." "... There is no fear of God before their eyes."  Romans 3:10, 18 "If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." 1 John 2:16-18  "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." James 4:4  "For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."  1 Timothy 3:2-5

Psychology is based upon Freud's history of mankind, as children of "human nature," as "children of disobedience," as children of abomination, 'liberating' themselves from the Father's authority, negating the Father's authority in their thoughts and their actions: "... the hatred against patriarchal suppression—a ‘barrier to incest,' ... the desire (for the sons) to return to the mother [to be at-one-with nature, i.e. following after their natural urges and impulses of the 'moment']culminates in the rebellion of the exiled sons, the collective killing and devouring of the father, and the establishment of the brother clan,"  "'It is not really a decisive matter whether one has killed one's father or abstained from the deed,' if the function of the conflict [the negation (annihilation) of the Father's authority] and its consequences are the same [there is no Father's authority restraining the child's carnal nature, i.e. "human nature"]."  (Herbart Marcuse explaining Freud's historiography in his book, Eros and Civilization: a psychological inquiry into Freud

Freud's dialectic 'reasoning' is: If "human nature," i.e. man's sinful nature (man's desire to satisfy his 'libido,' i.e. his natural inclination to "lust" after the gratifying things of the world) is common to all men, then being sinful, i.e. "human nature" (man's "lust" for pleasure, i.e. for dopamine 'emancipation') must become the "norm," i.e. must become the starting point for determining right from wrong behavior.  If the child's (man's and society's') "guilty conscience" for sinning, i.e. for being "normal" is the barrier to the child becoming "himself" (knowing himself as he is, i.e. carnal, i.e. of the world only, thinking and acting according to pleasure, "enjoyment," happiness, "lust," in the 'moment'), for the child (and therefore man and society) to become "normal (physically, mentally, and socially 'healthy'), the "guilty conscience" (the Father's authority) must be negated.  Again: if the Father's authority engenders the "guilty conscience" (for disobedience against the Father, i.e. for sinning) then the Father's authority must itself be negated, making the child (and therefore society) "normal" again, as he was before the Father's first command and threat of judgment for disobedience, i.e. for sinning (which according to dialectic 'reasoning' no longer exists, since sinning is no longer found in the child's "human nature," i.e. in his love for himself and the world and therefore in his disobedience of the Father's authority, i.e. sinning is instead, the child and therefore man and society submitting to the Father's authority, i.e. sin is the act of burdening the carnal child and the carnal man with a "guilty conscience" for being "normal," i.e. for disobeying the Father, i.e. for disobeying God). 

"Sin is the estrangement of man from man."  "Concern for man [concern for pleasing the child, pleasing that which is below, i.e. satisfying the child's carnal nature, which is common to all men] replaces concern about pleasing God [concern for pleasing the Father, pleasing that which is above, i.e. submitting to the Father's authority which divides the child from his own nature and therefore divides the child from other children, i.e. therein dividing man from man]." (Leonard Wheat, Paul Tillich's Dialectical Humanism)  The very act of faith is an act of "prejudice," segregating the child from his nature and the nature of the world.  "Prejudice" is engendered in the child's obedience to his Father's will, where the Father's will rules over and against his will to become at-one-with himself, others, and the world.

Faith is not grounded upon the mother's "feelings" for the child (and therefore the child's "feelings" for himself and the world) but upon the Father's authority, i.e. in the child's obedience to the Father's commands (the child's will subject to the Father's will—"Thy will be done" Matthew 6:10; 26:42  "Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God."  Hebrews 10:7)  It is impossible to please God without faith.  While God (the Father) gives all men (all children) a "measure of faith" (Roman's 12:3), when the Lord returns he will not find faith in men ("will there be faith?").  The absence of faith in the Father and respect for His authority is the witness of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e. of the "feelings" and "thoughts" of the child (void of parental restraint), i.e. of the effect of psychology upon the thoughts and actions of men.  "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."  Hebrews 11:6  "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."  Romans 10:17  "For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom (by dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e. inductive 'reasoning' basing 'truth,' i.e. reality upon the child's "feelings," i.e. his "sensuous needs" and "sense perception") knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching (by man's acceptance of God's "It is written ...," i.e. beginning with the child's acceptance of the Father's "Because I said so") to save them that believe."  1 Corinthians 1:21  "Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked."   Ephesians 6:16  "Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" Luke 18:8  With the praxis of psychology, the answer is no.

If you start with the nature of the child, i.e. with "human nature" as the premise for 'reality,' then pleasure (the natural inclination of the child to approach pleasure and avoid pain) becomes the 'drive' and the 'purpose' of life, negating right-wrong thinking and acting, according to the Father's authority, in the process.  Therefore it is in the child's (and therefore man's) natural inclination to approach pleasure that Freud 'justifies' the praxis of psychology.  Psychology begins with the premise that "infants know no guide except the pleasure-principle."  "Freud saw that in the id there is no negation[no parental authority, i.e. no Godly restraint, i.e. no "Thou shalt not"], only affirmation and eternity [only the pleasures of the 'moment']."  "Infants have a richer sexual life than adults [who are burdened with the rules of right and wrong behavior regarding pleasure].  Infantile sexuality is the pursuit of pleasure obtained through the activity of any and all organs of the human body.   While adult sexuality serves the socially useful purpose of breeding children, it is for the individual in some sense an end in itself as a source of pleasure – according to Freud, the highest pleasure.  Children have not acquired that sense of shame which, according to the Biblical story, expelled mankind from Paradise, and which, presumably, would be discarded if Paradise were regained [if pleasure instead of right-wrong became the 'purpose' of life then man could know "Paradise" in this life, in the here-and-now, with no "shame," i.e. with no "guilty conscience"]."  "Self-perfection of the human individual is fulfilled in union with the world in pleasure."  (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)

Norman O. Brown (a fellow "comrade" of the Marxist Marcuse), explaining Freud's "Higher Order Thinking Skills" (basing man's, i.e. the child's 'drive' and 'purpose' of life upon "human nature," i.e. his natural impulses and urges to become at-one-with the world in pleasure, in the 'moment'), wrote: "Adult sexuality, restricted by rules, to maintain family and society [to maintain the "top-down" system or patriarchal paradigm of the "old" world order], . . . leads to neurosis."  "The repression of normal adult sexuality is required only by cultures which are based on patriarchal domination ["Lower Order Thinking"]."  "Our repressed desires are the desires we had unrepressed, in childhood; and they are sexual desires."  "Parental discipline, religious denunciation of bodily pleasure [abstinence (self restraint, self-discipline, the humbling and denying of self)], . . . have all left man overly docile [un/anti-revolutionary], but secretly in his unconscious [in his urges and impulses to become at-one-with the world in pleasure, in the 'moment,' manifested in his imagination] unconvinced, and therefore neurotic [where the child's mind is caught between that which is of nature, i.e. of his own "feelings," i.e. of the flesh and the world and that which "represses" (blocks) nature, i.e. that which is of the supernatural, i.e. the Father's authority, where the child's actions, made subject to the Father's authority, are in conflict with his thoughts, which are influenced by his "feelings" for (and therefore influenced by) the things of the world]."  "If society imposes repression [by supporting the traditional family structure, i.e. honoring the Father's position of authority in the home], and repression causes the universal neurosis of man [man obeying the Father's "top-down" authority instead of following after his own natural inclinations, i.e. thinking, feeling, and acting according to "human nature"], . . . there is an intrinsic connection between social organization [the traditional family structure which separates the child from his own carnal nature and the carnal nature of society, i.e. the "communist community," i.e. where 'common-unity' is based upon 'common-ism'] and neurosis."  "The bondage of all cultures to their cultural heritage [where children have to obey their parent's commands and rules, accepting their facts and truth "as given" (regarding right and wrong behavior), which "represses" their natural inclination, i.e. "putting the lid on" Pandora's box, ,i.e. on their impulses and urges to become at-one-with the world in pleasure, in the 'moment' ] is a neurotic construction."  "By the standards of normal adult sexuality [by the standards of the traditional husband-wife relationship, with the husband "ruling" over his home well, and the desires of the wife being to her husband, and the children obeying their parent's, in the Lord, to "maintain family and society"] children are polymorphously perverse ['incestuous']."  "Normal adult sexuality [the traditional husband-wife relationship], judged by the standard of infantile sexuality [the child's natural inclination to become at-one-with nature, in pleasure, in the 'moment'], is an unnatural restriction [a supernatural restriction] of the erotic potentialities of the human body."  "Freud takes with absolute seriousness the proposition of Jesus: ‘Except ye become as little children [think, feel, and act according to your carnal nature, unrestrained by the Father's authority], ye can in no wise enter the kingdom of heaven [become at one with your own flesh and the world, i.e. experience "worldly peace and socialist harmony"].'"  "Psychoanalysis declares the fundamental bisexual character of human nature [whatever the source of pleasure is, as long as it does not "harm" yourself or others, it does not matter];"  " According to Freud, the ultimate essence of our being is erotic, and demands activity according to the pleasure-principle ["lust," "enjoyment"]."  "The foundation on which the man of the future will be built is already there, in the repressed unconscious [in the child's (in our) carnal nature]; the foundation has to be recovered [the child in us all, i.e. the 'libido,' i.e. our "lust" for pleasure, i.e. our sexual drive has to be 'liberated' from the Father's authority]. "  (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)

If you start with the Father's authority, i.e. (1. to give, i.e. preach and teach commands, rules, facts, and truth to be obeyed without questioning them and or challenging his authority (2. blessing those who obey, (3. chastening those who disobey, and (4. casting out those who disrespect, question, and/or challenge His authority, making the Father's authority the thesis, then the child's carnal nature ("human nature)" remains the antithesis—the world remains as it is, i.e. 'unchanging.'  But if you start with the child, i.e. make "human nature," the child's carnal nature, the thesis, giving the child 'liberty' to dialogue his opinion, i.e. how he "feels" and what he "thinks" in the 'moment,' in the current 'situation,' then the Father's authority, i.e. the barrier to 'change,' becomes the antithesis, i.e. the object to negate—making it possible to unite (synthesize) all the children as "one," uniting all of mankind upon their carnal sinful nature ("human nature").  The objective of psychology therefore becomes the praxis of negating the Father's authority over the children, i.e. 'justifying' the child's (man's) carnal, sinful, unrighteous nature—the very act of dialoguing opinions to a consensus itself (to a "feeling" of "oneness" between one's feelings, thoughts, and actions and between self and others) accomplishes the deed (the praxis) even if the original intent was to bolsters the Father's authority.

Freud built the praxis of psychology upon his two mythological Greek heroes, Orpheus, a homosexual who made love to young boys, i.e. who freely expressed his nature within nature, and Narcissus, who fell in love with his nature being reflected back to him from nature, i.e. who discovered his nature within nature itself only.  "Narcissus and Dionysus are closely assimilated in the Orphic mythology.... identity of the one and the many... reunification ... of God and world, man and nature..."  "Orpheus rejects the normal Eros ... the repressive order of procreative sexuality [to preserve family and society, i.e. the "old world order"]... for a fuller Eros ... the negation of all order [where the child's incestuous nature is 'liberated' from the Father's authority, i.e. the "new world order" where non-repressive Eros ("human nature") prevails]."  ibid.

"Freud noted that patricide and incest are part of man's deepest nature."  (Irvin Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy"If the guilt [the "guilty conscience" for disobeying the Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth] accumulated in the civilized domination of man by man [reflected in the Father's authority over his children] can ever be redeemed by freedom [the children 'redeemed, i.e. 'liberated' from the Father's authority, 'reconciled' back to the world], then the 'original sin' [the children determining what is right and what is wrong according to their own personal "feelings" and "thoughts" of the 'moment'] must be committed again: We must again eat from the tree of knowledge in order to fall back into the state of innocence [as the children were before their Father's first command and threat of chastening for disobedience (threat of being cast out for disrespecting his authority)]." (Herbart Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: A philosophical inquiry into Freud"The entry into Freud cannot avoid being a plunge into a strange world and a strange language―a world of sick men, ....It is a shattering experience for anyone seriously committed to the Western traditions of morality and rationality to take a steadfast, unflinching look at what Freud has to say. To experience Freud is to partake a second time of the forbidden fruit; and this book cannot without sinning communicate that experience to the reader." "Our real choice is between holy and unholy madness: open your eyes and look around you―madness is in the saddle anyhow." "It is possible to be mad and to be unblest, but it is not possible to get the blessing without the madness; it is not possible to get the illuminations without the derangement," "I wagered my intellectual life on the idea of finding in Freud what was missing in Marx."  (Norman O. Brown, regarding his book Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)  Mike Connor commenting on Brown and his work on Freud and Marx, at Browns funeral stated: "But Brown believed that the payoff was worth the price of sin—namely, that alienation would be overcome, and the return of the repressed completed, rendering problems of sin permanently moot. Life Against Death established Brown, along with his colleague and friend Herbert Marcuse, and later Charles Reich, as an intellectual leader of the New Left …. a Marxist mode of Freudian analysis. Brown's push to resurrect the human body with all its erotic urges freely expressed, resonated with the members of the Human Potential Movement and the undergrads they were influencing in the 60's." (March 23-30, 2005 issue of Metro Santa Cruz)  As was put into praxis by the citizens of Sodom, i.e. abomination and the threat to harm any who got in their way of realizing it ("now will we deal worse with thee, than with them." Genesis 19:9), we find ourselves facing the same attitude from an ever escalating culture of abomination (initiated and sustained by the praxis of psychology).

Karl Marx recognized the same "barrier" to man's (the child's) progress ("socialist harmony and worldly unity") as Freud, i.e. the Father's authority. "Once the earthly family [where the children learn to be obedient to their parent's, even unto death] is discovered to be the secret of the holy family [where the only begotten Son of God is obedient to His Father's authority in all things, even unto death], the former [parental authority, i.e. the father's authority in the traditional home] must itself be annihilated theoretically and practically [in the child's personal "feelings" and thoughts and in his social actions, i.e. in his relationship with others no longer being "judgmental," i.e. condemning]."  (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4)

George Hegel saw 'reality' (the true nature of society) as residing within the child's nature ("human nature"), not in the Father's authority (in righteousness, i.e. in doing the Father's will).  For 'reality' to become 'reality,' the Father's authority over his family, property, and business (and therefore society) had to be negated., this could only be done by making the child's nature, i.e. "human nature" the standard from which society is built.  "The child, contrary to appearance, is the absolute, the rationality of the relationship; he is what is enduring and everlasting, the totality which produces itself once again as such."  "On account of the absolute and natural oneness of the husband, the wife, and the child, ... the surplus is not the property of one of them ... all contracts regarding property or service and the like fall away ... the surplus, labour, and property are absolutely common to all, inherently and explicitly."  (George Hegel, System of Ethical Life)

By the 50's men who had merged Marx and Freud (sociology with psychology), who came to the States from Germany in the 30's, had succeeded in infiltrating education, the media, and government with psychology, hiding Marxism within it. "As the Frankfurt School wrestled with how to 'reinvigorate Marx', they 'found the missing link in Freud'"  (Jay, Martin, The Dialectical Imagination: The History of the Frankfurt School and the Institute of Social Research 1923-1950)

You have Karl Marx within you.  Have you ever seen a two year olds face (and fist) when his parent took something away from him that he wanted, that he "lusted" after.  If he were strong enough and had a gun he would use it on them.  That look, that raised fist, that kick against the parent is the Karl Marx within your child (within you) wanting to annihilate the Father's authority (hating the Father's authority) because it prevents him (you) from having his (your) carnal way.

"Freud [and], Hegel, like Marx, [are] compelled to postulate external domination and its assertion by force in order to explain repression.... Therefore the question confronting mankind is the abolition of repression – in traditional Christian language, the resurrection of the body [the 'liberation' of the child from parental authority, the 'liberation' of man's carnal nature from Godly restraint—what I call Satan's "Genesis project" (Genesis 3:1-6)].  The resurrection of the body is a social project."  "In the words of Thoreau: 'We need pray for no higher heaven than the pure senses can furnish, a purely sensuous life.  Our present senses are but rudiments of what they are destined to become.'"  "Freud speaks of religion [loving the Father over and against the world]] as a 'substitute-gratification'– the Freudian analogue to the Marxian formula, 'opiate of the people [loving the King over and against "the people"]."  "We must return to Freud and say that incest guilt [the Father's authority engendering a "guilty conscience" in the child while he is doing (or thinking about doing) that which comes naturally, i.e. becoming at-one-with the world in pleasure, i.e. following after his carnal nature, i.e. satisfying his urges and impulses of the 'moment, i.e. "lusting" after the things of the world] created the familial organization."   "What we call 'conscience' perpetuates inside of us our bondage to past objects [parental authority] now part of ourselves : the super-ego 'unites in itself the influences [the child's own "feelings"] of the present and of the past.'"   "The guilty conscience is formed in childhood by the incorporation of the parents and the wish to be father of oneself."—Freud considered children as being sexually active, just not able to procreate] created the familial organization." "Eros is the foundation of morality." "The basic structure of Freud's thought is committed to dialectics [the child's mind and behavior 'liberated' from parental authority, i.e. man's mind and behavior 'liberated' from Godly authority, i.e. being purely of and for himself, i.e. of "human nature" only, individually and socially]."  "His [Freud's] finest insights are incurably 'dialectical.'"  (Norman O. Brown,, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)

"Marxian theory needs Freudian-type instinct theory to round it out. And of course, vice versa." "This is a realistic combination of the Marxian version & the Humanistic. (Better add to definition of "humanistic" that it also means one species, One World.)" (Abraham Maslow, The Journals of Abraham Maslow)  "Psychoanalysis must treat religion [man having faith in God as a child has faith in his father, obeying His commands and accepting his chastening when he disobeys] as a neurosis."  (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History "God is conceived more directly after a parental image and thus as a source of support and as a guiding and sometimes punishing authority."  "Authoritarian submission was conceived of as a very general attitude that would be evoked in relation to a variety of authority figures—parents, older people, leaders, supernatural power, and so forth."  (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality"I have found whenever I ran across authoritarian students that the best thing for me to do was to break their backs immediately."  "The correct thing to do with authoritarians is to take them realistically for the bastards they are and then behave toward them as if they were bastards." (Abraham Maslow, Maslow on Management)

The moment a psychiatrist walks into the room, Satan walks into the garden in Eden, 'liberating' the children from the Father's authority, making the environment a "better" place for the children to live in.  The psychoanalyst (the therapist) through their use of language, i.e. their use of dialoging opinions (using the language of sight, i.e. determining right from wrong according to the child's "sensuous needs" and "sense perception" i.e. according to his "feelings" and "thoughts," i.e. according to his flesh finding harmony/unity with the world, regarding the current situation, i.e. in the 'moment,' which is temporary) instead of preaching and teaching facts and truth to be accepted "as is" (using the language of faith, i.e. knowing right from wrong according to the words of the Father, which are eternal), they 'liberate' the children from the Father's authority.  There is no Father's authority (preaching and teaching of commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e. "It is written ...," i.e. "My father says ..." Matthew 4:1-11 ) in the child's opinion, i.e. in how he "feels" or what he "thinks" in the 'moment' (in your opinion, i.e. in how you "feel" or what you "think" in the 'moment').  Just know this: your opinion will not count on the day of judgment. Through the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus (to a "feeling" of "oneness," i.e. creating a "new" world order of "socialist harmony and worldly peace"), the Father's authority is annihilated (negated) in the child's personal thoughts and in his social actions, 'liberating' the other children of the Father's authority, i.e. 'liberating' the world of Godly restraint.  As Satan did in the garden in Eden, so social-psychologists do today.  All psychologists who are are concerned about the child's "social life" are socio-psychologist, i.e. Transformational Marxists, facilitators of 'change,' i.e. of their father the Devil, 'liberating' the children from the Father's authority, i.e. 'redeeming' them from "repression," "alienation," and "neurosis," 'reconciling' them back to the world, as they were before the Father's first command and threat of chastening (judgment) for disobedience, 'justifying' the praxis of abomination along the way.  All psychoanalysts must yell (or encourage others to yell) "Crucify Him," i.e. crucify the one who obeys his Father's will to the death.  "We choose Caesar and the way of the world (the approval of men) instead."

When you hear of someone (or you yourself are) being labeled as being "psychological" (as anti-socialist or a-socialist, as "intolerant of abomination," as "unadaptable to 'change," i.e. as a person of unwavering faith,  i.e. as one who is "non-influenceable of private convictions"), as "was done" in the "old soviet union" (is still being done today), you now know what is going on, i.e. who is speaking to you (and about you), i.e. psychoanalysts, i.e. sons of the Devil (even if they are speaking from behind the podium in the "church," calling themselves "ministers""For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."  2 Corinthians 11:13-15, i.e. those who, loving the praises of men, i.e. loving the approval of the children for their "experiencing" of worship), hate the Father of Christ. "We must develop persons who see non-influenceability of private convictions in joint deliberations as a vice rather than a virtue." (Kenneth Benne, Human Relations in Curriculum Change)  Without the "non-influenceability of private convictions in joint deliberations" you have not private, as in private property, business, or right to rule over your own home, or inalienable rights, as in right of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, under God.

Psychology (the 'liberation' of the child's carnal nature from the Father's authority, i.e. 'liberating' "human nature" from Godly restraint) has become so entrenched in the American way of thinking today that to question it will bring your "rationality" into question and put your carrier at risk, i.e. "Who can trust the man who puts his trust in Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ instead of trusting in his own understanding and the understanding of his fellow man?"  Who can trust the man who believes that we are to: "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."  Proverb. 3: 5-6 when all that we hear about is a world of pleasure, of "enjoyment," of "lusts" as the way of life.  All that psychoanalysis have to say to you and others, if you expose them for that they are doing, is "Oh. We are not doing any of that," and most people will believe them, letting them have their way on them and their children, questioning your sanity along the way.

"He that committeth sin [disobeys the Father] is of the devil; for the devil sinneth [disobeys the Father—not that the devil was a ever son but only an angel created to Worship and Serve the creator of all things good, turning to his own talents instead, worshiping them and the creation in defiance to God's will, intent in making the world subject to his will instead] from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested [obeying the Father in all things], that he might destroy the works of the devil."  1 John 3:8 "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil [the seduction, deception, and manipulation of socio-psychologists].  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;"  Ephesians 6:10-18 

When men, who claim to be ministers of the word of God, use psychology to "grow" the church (basing it's "growth" upon "human relationship," i.e. upon how people are "feeling" and what they are "thinking" in the 'moment,' i.e. about themselves, others, and the world) they are doing nothing more than turning the bride of Christ into a whore, prostituting her on the street corners of the world.  Woe be to that man who uses the bride of Christ for his own gain!  If community is founded upon 'compromise' and the church on none, then what is a "community church" other than an organization (an institution) of man's own making, based upon a religion of 'compromise.'

The art craft of seduction, deception, and manipulation (of psychology) is so great these days that no one can stop it. "The consequences of family democratization ['liberation' of the child's thoughts and actions from parental authority] take a long time to make themselves felt–but it would be difficult to reverse the process once begun."  "Once the parent can in any way imagine his own orientation to be a possible liability to the child in the world approaching the authoritarian family is moribund, regardless of whatever countermeasures may be taken."  (Warren Bennis, The Temporary Society)  Like Pandora's box, once it is opened, i.e. made the law of the land, accepted by the citizens, i.e. by the parents as a legitimate "profession," it can not be closed, with all the evils of the heart of man pouring out, now under it's "control."  As Carl Rogers confessed in his book on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy: "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."  "…our potential ability to influence or control the behavior of groups.  If we have the power or authority to establish the necessary conditions, the predicted behaviors will follow."  "'Now that we know how positive reinforcement works [dialoguing opinions, i.e. "feelings" and "thought's" to a consensus, i.e. to a "feeling" or sensation of "oneness," i.e. a Heresiarchal Paradigm of 'change', i.e. of revolution, circumventing parental authority, overcoming the affects of the "guilty conscience"], and why negative doesn't' [preaching and teaching truth to be accepted "as given," and chastening when it is rejected, i.e. a Patriarchal Paradigm of revelation, i.e. of "It is written ..." and "Because I said so," i.e. engendering a "guilty conscience" for disobedience] ... 'we can be more deliberate and hence more successful in our cultural design [negating American sovereignty, replacing it with "cosmic consciousness," i.e. globalism in the thoughts, feelings, and actions of the citizens].  We can achieve a sort of control under which the controlled, though they are following a code much more scrupulously 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 wished.  The curious thing is that in that case the question of freedom never arises."  "In psychology, Freud and his followers have presented convincing arguments that the id [the child's impulses and urges of the 'moment'], man's basic and unconscious nature, is primarily made up of instincts which would, if permitted expression, result in incest, murder, and other crimes.  The whole problem of therapy, as seen by this group, is how to hold these untamed forces in check in a wholesome and constructive manner, rather than in the costly fashion of the neurotic."  

Why would you want to "hold "incest, murder, and other crimes" "in check" for the "betterment" of society, rather than "repress" them, i.e. defending parental authority, unless you wanted to use crime to gain access into the "community of interest" for the 'purpose' of 'change," i.e. for the purpose of controlling the people.  Robert Trojanowicz (the creator of COPS, Community Oriented Policing Services) recognized the importance of crime in that it allowed socialist, i.e. the "community policing officer" (serving and protecting the "community concept," i.e. common-ism, i.e. the "collective," not the individual citizen of the community) access into the community, i.e. to gain access to and thereby gain control over the citizens thoughts and actions through the use of the consensus process, circumventing local control (parental control) of the community, i.e. negating the traditional parent's "top-down" way of doing business.  "The community of interest generated by crime, disorder and fear of crime becomes the goal to allow the community policing officer an entree into the geographic community."  (Trojanowicz, Dr. Robert, The meaning of "Community" in Community Policing)  As the guru for globalism and environmentalism, Irvin Laszlo stated it:  "Individual values must be measured by their contribution to common interests and ultimately to world interests.... transforming public consensus into one favorable to the emergence of a stable and humanistic world order." "Consensus [the circumventing of parental, i.e. local control] is both a personal and a political step. It is a precondition of all future steps..." (Irvin Laszlo, A Strategy for the Future: The Systems Approach to World Order)  "The central problem of democracy is the formation of a somewhat vaguely defined 'postconventional' consensus through which everyone affected by a decision must be able to participate in reaching it [through the dialoguing of their opinions, i.e. how they "feel" and what they "think" in the given 'moment' to a "feeling" of "oneness," i.e. "common-ism," i.e. circumventing parental authority, i.e. negating Godly restraint in their thoughts and actions]." (Stephen Eric Bronner, Of Critical Theory and Its TheoristsWhen you do not reprove, correct, or rebuke deviancy, deviancy becomes the "norm."

Before psychology the schools had to deal with gum under the student's desks (with student's having a "guilty conscience" hiding it), now it has to deal with shootings (with student's who have no "guilty conscience" for their thoughts and actions).  Instead of restoring order by restoring the use of the paddle and expulsion  for deviant behavior (returning to parental authority) it finds the solution by removing guns from the citizens hands, engendering a police state instead.  You do not want people who have no "guilty conscience," i.e. who have no fear of God (or parental authority) for their thoughts and actions, running around with guns.  Nor do you want people who have a "guilty conscience" to have them as well, defending the "old" world order, i.e. their right of family, property, business, and life (the Father's authority).  "The guilty conscience is formed in childhood by the incorporation of the parents and the wish to be father of oneself."  "What we call 'conscience' perpetuates inside of us our bondage to past objects now part of ourselves: the super-ego 'unites in itself the influences of the present and of the past [the child's carnal desires of the past which were restrained (repressed) by parental authority and his hatred against parental authority which restrains them in the present].'"  (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History "Social control is most effective at the individual level. The personal conscience is the key element in ensuring self-control, refraining from deviant behavior even when it can be easily perpetrated."  "The family, the next most important unit affecting social control, is obviously instrumental in the initial formation of the conscience and in the continued reinforcement of the values that encourage law abiding behavior."  (Dr. Robert Trojanowicz, The meaning of "Community" in Community Policing

Bennis admitted the effect psychology (i.e. agencies under its influence and control) would have upon the traditional "top-down" family, i.e. negating it, i.e. 'liberating' the children from the effects parental authority have upon their thoughts and actions. "Any non-family-based collectivity [or dialectically (socialist) based society, i.e. Child Protective Services] that intervenes between parent and child and attempts to regulate and modify the parent-child relationship will have a democratizing ['liberating' the children from parental authority] impact on that relationship.  For however much the state or community may wish to inculcate obedience and submission in the child, its intervention betrays a lack of confidence in the only objects from whom a small child can learn authoritarian submission [the parents], ... [By changing the focus from parental authority to the child's "well-being," society is changed, its focus now becoming] an overweening interest in the future development of the child-- in other words, a child centered orientation.(Warren Bennis, The Temporary Society)

Instead of removing psychology (hate of the Father's authority) from the community, the Father's authority is being removed instead (replacing the student's "guilty conscience," i.e. accountability to parental authority with the "super-ego," i.e. accountability to the flesh, to the "group," i.e. to society, to psychological manipulation), all done to 'liberate' the the child's "feelings" and "thoughts," i.e. his actions from parental authority (and man's carnal "feelings," thoughts and actions from Godly restraint).  The dialectic theory being: Anyone having a "guilty conscience" for their wicked thoughts and actions, who then reproves, corrects, and rebukes others for their wicked thoughts and actions, need's psychological counseling, to remove the "guilty conscience" (the Father's authority) from the "community," (negating righteousness as an issue of life) all for the sake of creating a "better" society.  God created the world, and called it good.  Then Satan (the first psychological councilor) came along and "made it 'better.'"  Since then man has been working to make the world a "better" place, following after the ways of psychoanalysts, who are following after the first psychoanalyst, i.e. following after the ways of the world ('justifying' his carnal nature) instead of seeking after the lord (repenting of his sins). "The most important symptom of the defeat in the fight for oneself [the indicator of a persons inability to 'liberate' himself (his "self") from the Father's authority, i.e. from the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ] is the guilty conscience." (Erich Fromm, Escape from Freedom)  While psychologists recognize the effect of the "guilty conscience" (the Father's authority), i.e. restraining "deviant" behavior, they can not let it exist, because, if they did, they, along with their profession (defending deviant behavior, i.e. 'liberating' abomination), would "collapse into a bottomless abyss."   "If the 'restoring of life' of the world is to be conceived in terms of the Christian revelation, then Marx [i.e. sociology, Hegel, i.e. philosophy, Freud, i.e. psychology, etc.] must collapse into a bottomless abyss." (Jürgen Habermas, Theory and Practice)

"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."  Romans 1:21-32

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."  2 Thessalonians 2:3-12

The word of God declares: "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;"  2 Timothy 4:3 1  "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;"  1 Timothy 4:1  "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety [through the seduction, deception, and manipulation of counseling, i.e. through the facilitating of 'change, i.e. putting Genesis 3:1-6 into 'praxis' 'liberating' the flesh, i.e. negating the Father's authority, i.e. Hebrews 12:5-11, 'justifying' the child's nature, i.e. "human nature," i.e. negating man's need for salvation from the power of sin and the wrath of God upon him for his praxis of it, i.e. dialectic 'reasoning' (psychology) saves us from eternal life, that we might "enjoy" the "lusts" of this life, inheriting eternal death instead, i.e. 'redeeming' us from Romans 7:14-25], so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ [in His obedience to His Heavenly Father in all things]." 2 Corinthians 11:3  The first time dialectic 'reasoning' was put into praxis is recorded in Genesis 3:1-6, where the woman, under the facilitating (psychological counseling) skills of Satan, became the first "environmentalist," i.e. the first "tree hugger," with Adam, following after the 'reasoning' of the woman, i.e. basing 'reality' upon "feelings," i.e. "human nature" and "human reasoning," abdicated his God given authority and become the first "humanists," i.e. choosing the woman (feminism, i.e. "human relationship") over and against God's word.

 "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."  Matthew 4:4 "O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23

"For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous."  Romans 5:19  The only begotten Son of God, Christ Jesus, was sent by His Heavenly Father, took on the form of man (became as a child before his father) to obey His Heavenly Father's commands without question, doing for us what we could not do for ourselves, living without sin, i.e. living without once disobeying His Heavenly Father's will, dying on the cross, taking our place for our sins, i.e. 'redeeming' us from His Heavenly Father's wrath upon us, i.e. 'redeeming' us from damnation, i.e. from spending eternity in Hell for our sins, i.e. for our loving of "human nature" over and against His Father's authority, the Father raising Him from the grave, 'reconciling' us to Himself that we might particle in His Holiness, i.e. spend eternity with Him in His glory, imputing His righteousness, i.e. His Son's obedience to Him, to us, for placing our faith in Him instead of the world, i.e. instead of "human nature," filling us with the Holy Spirit that we might do His will, i.e. His Heavenly Father's will while here on earth (as He did).  "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me."  John 5:30  "For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father who sent me, he gave me commandment what I should say, and what I should speak." John 12:49

"For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life."  Titus 3:3-7

The gospel message is about the Father's love for us (His mercy and grace), i.e. the Father sending His only begotten Son to die on the cross to 'redeem' us from damnation and then raising Him from the grave to 'reconcile' us to Him.  While the prodigal son thought his father's money was what life was all about, in the end he learned that it was his father's love for him. While sociology and psychology negates the Father's authority, there is no gospel message without the Father's authority (without the Father's authority it only becomes a socialist gospel, i.e. of and for the world only).  The gospel message is the Son's love of His Father and His obedience to His Father's will, i.e. His righteousness being imputed to us (who follow Him by faith), redeeming us from His Father's judgment upon us, 'reconciling' us to Himself, i.e. to His Father, that we might have eternal life—"and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ."  1 John 3:1  But if we are infatuated with the "lusts" of this world (with ourselves, others, and the world), i.e. how we "feel" and what we "think" (and how others "feel" and what they "think") in the 'moment,' having no "guilty conscience" for our thoughts and actions (no conviction and contrition and therefore not need for repentance before the Father for our sinful thoughts and actions, i.e. our carnal "felt needs" taking hegemony), then the Father becomes anathema, i.e. the antithesis to life, i.e. the "barrier," i.e. the object to overcome and negate.   The only 'drive' and 'purpose' of psychology, despite what psychoanalysts, i.e. seducers, deceivers, and manipulators of children might claim, i.e. they want you to believe that they are for the "family," is to negate the Father's authority in the thoughts and actions of all the children of the world.  Even Martin Luther, the founder of the Protestant Reformation understood the issue for man was righteousness (doing the Father's will), not sensuousness (man doing as he wills, thinking, feeling, and acting according to his carnal "felt needs," i.e. "lusting" after "the 'moment'").  "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?"  Matthew 16:24-26

Consider the following:

"For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." Matthew 12:50    "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my father which is in heaven." Matthew 7:21 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

"Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father."  John 6:46  "All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him."  Luke 10:22  Jesus declare: "I and my Father are one."  John 10:30  "Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?"  John 14:9

 "Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?"  Hebrews 12:9  "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven."  Matthew 23:9  "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is." 1 John 3:1, 2

"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." Matthew 16:24  "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast."  Ephesians. 2:8, 9  "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;"   2 Corinthians 10:5  "and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ."  "He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son."  1 John 3:1, 22

There is no such thing as a Christian psychologist, only a seduced, deceived, and manipulated person seducing, deceiving, and manipulating children and adults (including Christians) into negating the Father's authority, embracing abomination ("human nature") as the way of life, evaluating their life and the lives of others according to the "light" of this world, i.e. according to "human nature," according to their love of the world. "Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness." Luke 11:35  "No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."  Luke 16:13

"And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."  2 Corinthians 6:15-18

"As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.  For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.  But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man [according to men's opinions]. For I neither received it of man [through dialogue], neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ."  Galatians 1:9-12
