Martin & Deidre.

Do we identify with a crucified Lord for our sins and ask what is the fullness of this for my life and death, or do we try to figure out the type of person we become as a result of our own experiences and the sinfulness of others?

If true righteousness comes through faith in Christ, then whatever I resolve by my own works of introspection competes with that, no matter how rationalized for the sake of ultimately becoming a better person. Do we become a better person by understanding our innate goodness and how we are victimized?

Of course introspection is essential in sanctification, but it is in light of His law and His precepts, not in how man has defined who we are at base, how we define our problems, or what the remedy might be. Deception, as tricky as it is, tends to ignore God and elevate man. We could conclude that the intellect is more often complicit, but a heart that seeks after God in child-like faith is no detriment.      New York


Dear friends in the Lord Jesus Christ,

I recently finish reading Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology and the Business of Keeping Us Hooked, by Adam Alter (2017). Alter grabbed me with his prologue, recalling the Apple event where Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad in 2010. I remember watching part of that. Jobs explained how wonderful the iPad is, to do all kinds of cool and useful things. “But,” says Alter, Jobs “refused to let his kids use the device.” Apparently many of those working in high-tech production know how terribly addictive these devices can be, and in many cases, how addictive they are designed to be. But most of the rest of us don’t. That is, until we discover how much we rely upon them, not just for work, but as a means of interacting with life. It’s a very thoughtful book, though quite disconcerting when one thinks about how to find ways to limit our dependence upon our technology. As I’ve often heard said about technology, “Good servant; bad master.” But, that’s a constant challenge.   France


Dear Martin and Deidre,

We really appreciate your faithfulness to God and your adherence to His Word. We also appreciate your boldness in proclaiming God’s truth and your efforts to inform Christians and all who will listen, about the dangers and consequences of psychotherapy. Your ministry is such a blessing to us and so many others. We pray that God will richly bless you and your ministry as you continue His work.      Oklahoma


Dear Bobgans:

I’m an 82-year-old retired college professor, who was born-again as a Christian the year before I retired (1989). My field was sociology and my education included some psychology, social psychology, and anthropology. It was a few years later that I came to realize that all the so-called behavioral sciences fail to deal with one essential component of human beings — the spirit.

I Thessalonians 5:23-24: “May God Himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit [pneuma], soul [psyche] and body [soma] be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The One who calls you is faithful and He will do it.” NIV 1984

That’s the missing component; minus which, calls into question all of the studies and findings of our behavioral sciences. Yet, this flawed referent forms the foundation of all professions spawned from those fields of study and research. It’s one thing to choose to not believe or reject our Creator God; it’s quite another to ignore the spirit within the human being while calling your approach “science.” Humbug!

Thanks to both of you for your many years of ministry. My gratitude I offer to you as one you have turned from so-called “Christian/Nouthetic counseling” a few years ago as well.      Maine


Hi!

Thank you very much for sending me your newsletter so faithfully. I’ve been moved again. I am currently doing prison time 100% because I won’t do the State’s unholy “mental health” psychology programs. God is in control and eventually He will make it right.

With eternity in view!      Prisoner
