language, etc.” Here is an example of what they say. The so-called ‘discriminative’ religious words “sin” and “sinner” cause “impaired and irrational emotions” as it condemns human rights by labelling people and their actions “negatively.” In psychology, negative words such as “sin” and “sinner” do not exist. The reason? The words “sin” and “sinner” cause the “impaired and thus unreal perception” that people are “negative, undesirable forces.” The reality is that these people (sinners,) are merely people who do not act as ‘patients’ expect them to. Such a negative perception of others and their actions “distorts the patient’s reality” through his or her “learned religion, culture, and use of language.”
The ‘cognitive knowledge’ that ‘sin’ is simply a learned, impaired religious view, is allegedly“ true logic or rational reality.” In this case, the “real problem” is that the God of the Bible Himself constructed “a negative and thus unreal view of personal and cultural reality in the mind of humanity.”
Cognitive “reality” is that Jesus is not the Truth and his Word is a lie; “cognitive reality” is supposedly ‘truth!’ They convince people in dire need of Jesus, The Truth, Who “can set them free,” that their personal, impaired perception of [co-called] psychological reality is the wrong or ‘unreal’ reality — while they also say that ‘wrong’ does not really exist!
Therefore, Pontius Pilate, severely infected by these same age-old Roman philosophies, asked upon the testimony of Jesus, The Truth Himself, “What is truth?...” Then he went out to the Jews and said, “I find no fault in Him at all,” (Jn. 28:35-38.) Pilate was actually saying, “Your truth; my truth; the truth of the Jews… None of it is reality but merely learned, yet impaired, distorted religious and cultural reality. Reality is that cognitively, (or interpreted collectively,) no one’s truth is reality.”
To understand the oxymoron of ‘cognitive reality,’ lets say, a patient’s husband or wife committed adultery. The words “commit,” “adultery,” and “adulterer” do not exist in cognitive behaviour therapies because they say, in one culture, adultery is a nearly unforgivable, abusive sin that destroys marriage, family, and social life. In another, polygamy and free sex are an acceptable part of everyday life. Hence, the ‘patient’s’ belief that the spouse “committed” a “crime” such as “adultery;” (therefore the spouse is an “adulterer,”) is not logic, collective [here’s that New Age global consciousness of Carl Jung again] rational reality. Supposedly, the mere ‘cognitive knowledge’ that, (viewed collectively,) ‘adultery’ is simply a learned, impaired religious view, is true ‘logic and rational reality.”
The “real” problem is therefore not the adulterating spouse, but the patient’s own impaired and negative religious/cultural view of reality. [Actually, adultery does not exist. It is merely an “upsetting perception” in the ‘sick’ mind of the victim!] The victim (although, actually, victims too are self-made and therefore do not really exist!) is the problem, not the “negatively perceived” ‘adulterer.’ Thus, the “unreal, negative perceptions” in the mind of the ‘patient,’ which is an impaired reality, constitute the problem.
So, those who suffer because of sin actually do it to themselves as they are ‘religiously and culturally impaired,’ mainly because of their ‘sick’ religious beliefs. This is the old-old psychiatric (or actually the Buddhist/Hindu/Nazi/communist doctrine of ‘Maya’) that suffering is not real [but caused by impaired reality.] These religions all teach the humanism and reincarnation,’ where suffering is supposedly not a reality but an unreal, imagined perception of pain, torture, starvation, incarceration, etcetera.
“COGNIVIVELY (OR MINDLESSLY) ‘LIVING IN THE MOMENT’ MAKES YOU HAPPY”
On the surface, ‘here and now,’ occult Buddhist/Hindu therapies such as ‘Living in The Moment’ seem to turn regression therapy on its head and appear to be much more ‘beneficial’ than ‘repairing the past therapy,’ as the focus seems to be “a straight-forward, logic, fresh approach to psychiatric help.”
Living in the moment therapy can be compared to the belief that ‘mindless’ fish cannot remember anything for more than three minutes, and that they cannot feel pain. Believing silly myths like these is why fish are some of the most abused creatures in the world! Thus, ‘living in the now therapy’ says a lot about the abuse of humans, because these ‘therapists’ actually expect us not to remember abuse or feel pain. However, the God-given abilities to remember and feel pain are essential in learning innumerable survival and other skills, which keep us alive and benefit us, as well as all of humanity.
The same creation principles apply to animals. I have kept Koi fish, Goldfish and tropical fish for many years, and can confidently state they have different personalities, show emotions — and remember faces, specific feeding times, what is safe and what endangers them. One can clearly see when fish are happy, cold, sick or scared. I have seen fish die by giving up on life when they are separated from the school for prolonged periods of time. My Koi fish hide underneath the plants and deep in the pond when strangers arrive. They also respond when I call each one by name to come out from under the water lilies during feeding time. This is how unique God made His whole creation.
The human spirits of people [1 Ths. 5:23] even cry out in the afterlife. Although the deceased “know nothing more of what is going on here on earth and have no share in anything done under the sun,” (Eccl. 9:5b-6,) they remember clearly the abuse they suffered while they were still physically alive. Rev. 6:9-10, “...The [human spirits] under the altar of those who had been slain for the Word of God and the testimony which they held, cried with a loud voice, “How long, O Lord… until You judge and avenge our blood on those who well on the earth?”
Of course, the human spirits in heaven crying out to God for righteous judgment, (Rev. 6:9-10,) is not a licence to hold grudges and harbor unforgiveness. This merely proves God does not expect us to live with three-minute memories and that the pain we feel while physically alive, is very real. Rom. 8:28, “[God promised] that [He will] work all things for good for those who love Him [and keep His Moral Law commandments.]”
How can we believe we do not learn from past and present suffering? Not because we sinfully cling to harm and hurts but because we learn and grow emotionally from experience. Experience comes through hardship, loss, suffering, personal sacrifice, and pain. Heb. 5:8 declares, “Though He was the Son, yet Jesus learned obedience by the things He suffered. [In His complete humanity, He had to endure all things just like we do, while also being God: Col. 2:9.]”
In contrast to the facts of life and the truth of God’s Word, Killingsworth and Daniel Gilbert wrote, “Happiness is found by living in the now, particularly if the now involves having sex, [this is a call to immorality and fornication — which of course, do not ‘exist’ in psychology,] according to a major study into mental wellbeing… Happiness was more affected by… where they went in their imagination, [visualization] than by the activity they were doing at the time... [The doctrine of Maya: suffering is not real it’s only an illusion.]
“The ability to think about what is not happening [or ‘living in the moment,’ which, ironically, psychology calls “denial”] is a cognitive achievement… Sex is one of the few broad categories of activity that requires and perhaps benefits from our full attention…” [What utter immoral nonsense!] A reporter continued, “More than 5,000 people have signed up for the happiness study and the researchers hope to attract more so they can look at mental wellbeing in different geographical regions and between the sexes with greater accuracy…”
So, now we know why psychologists urge people through this co-called ‘therapy’ to live as ‘mindless’ beings. They are creating an entire mindless race of banged up ‘new humans.’
Supposedly, Cognitive Based Therapy, (or CBT,) as it’s later version, Logic Based Therapy, (LBT,) differs from psychoanalyzing in that it no longer lingers on the cause of problems, but focuses on the problem itself. Confrontation (not the Biblical way in Mt. 18:15-20,) now plays a major part in ‘resolving’ problems.
This ‘logic based solution’ to problems seems to be working, they say.
However, appearances can be very deceiving.
Albert Ellis spelled out the meaning and goal of all these ‘cognitive’ and ‘logic based’ therapies. He is another devoted disciple of the anti-god, masonic religion called “evolution,” and the wrote, "[Evolving] humans, unlike all the other animals on earth, create fairly sophisticated languages which not only enable them to think about their feelings, actions, and the results they get from doing and not doing certain things, but they are now able to think about thinking.” This means they are “now” allegedly evolving spiritually to ‘metacognition’ or ‘higher order’ [paranormal/spiritual] thinking skills to problem solving. Psychologists are “now” ‘going beyond’ thinking and memory by using hypnosis to help people achieve ‘higher’ or ‘metacognitive’ “understanding between cross cultures to provide better results in learning about all the different cultures,” to mould the world into one global culture or the One World Order.
This dangerous messing with people’s minds by contacting ‘higher powers’ or spirit guides through hypnosis, to lead them to ‘higher knowledge’ and ‘collective consciousness,’ is merely Carl Jung’s occultism under a ‘new’ guise. Additionally, Ellis lies with a straight face about this ‘metacognition’ rubbish. It is definitely not “new.” Wikipedia wrote, “Writings on metacognition date back at least as far as two works by the Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-322 BC): On the Soul and the Parva Naturalia.”
So, cognitive behaviour therapy and it’s many offspring are supposedly based on logic thinking but in truth, they are all still grounded in evolution, humanism, and the occult doctrines of Greek, Roman, Buddhist and Hindu philosophers!
Just a superficial study of these occult psychology dogmas brings me to the conclusion that, after these Satanists have messed with your mind either through psychoanalyzing or cognitive therapies or both, you will never be a rational, sane individual again — unless you immerse yourself totally in the grace and truth of God and His contextual Word!
Some of the Treatments to Repair the ‘Patient’s problem,’ as addressed by Cognitive and Logic Based Therapy: Confrontation through Role Play Exercises like Gestalt, and Safe Place
The ‘patient,’ through self-discovery, self-healing and self-will, (as humanity supposedly only uses 10% of their brainpower,) must rectify “learned, self-destructive, unreal, irrational emotions” by changing their “negative perceptions” and feelings of rejection, anger, etc. cognitively into positive, rational, and real emotions.
The problem of “impaired religious and cultural belief” can easily be treated by doing ‘positive corrective exercises’ to acquire the “real” cognitive knowledge of different cultures. This can only happen if the patient cognitively replaces his or her impaired reality of self-defeating, learned perceptions and negative words such as “sinner,” “sin” and “adultery,” with collective, “positive and real reality” such as unconditional love and unconditional acceptance.
Role play treatments invoke spirits to supposedly help traumatized children and adults ‘correct their pasts’ by “confronting” their abusers. For instance, in Gestalt Therapy or “empty chair treatment,” [in German, ‘gestalt’ means ‘form or shape, or manifestation of the unseen,’] the ‘patient’ “confronts” a spouse, parent, child molester, etcetera by “imagining” the person is sitting in the opposite, empty chair. The ‘patient’ must then face the imaginary person to vent all his or her “negative feelings” to the “gestalt.” Then, the ‘patient’ changes chairs and “imagine” that he or she is the “gestalt” that sat in the chair, who now cognitively answers ‘the patient.’ In this way, the ‘patient’ and the ‘gestalt’ alternate roles until the ‘patient’ resolves his or her problems by cognitively “repairing” his or her “impaired, negative perceptions.” In fact, this is calling up spirits, and the devil will never pass up such a golden opportunity to get hold of someone’s soul.
In Safe Place Therapy, ‘patients’ ‘escape’ to an alternative state of mind when they feel threatened by imagining or visualizing that nothing can harm them while they are in their ‘safe place.’ This place might be on the beach or under a bed, wherever they feel completely safe. It is told, one ‘patient’ went as far as to build a wooden jail to use as his ‘safe place!’ Of course, the only ‘safe place’ that is real is to be found at the throne of God in the Name and Power of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Thus, God’s Word states, “The Lord is my Light and my Salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the Stronghold of my Life, of whom shall I be afraid? Ps. 27:1.
THE ABUSE OF PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION IN BEHAVIORAL THERAPIES
While Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT) seem to mirror Paul’s commandment to ‘deal with the past God’s Way and move forward,’ (Phil. 3:13-14,) in reality, it equals the medicating of symptoms such as a runny nose and fever, while ignoring the cause of the illness: killer bacterial pneumonia.
In Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and all its occult accomplices, prescription medication also plays a major part in the treatment of mostly unsuspecting people, who fail to reach cognitive or actually ‘collective consciousness,’ which these shamans term “repaired reality.” (All of this, of course, is pure New Age Dogma!)
Sadly, the careless over-medicating, over-dispensing and long-term use of soul and life demolishing prescription ‘medication’ (or actually very dangerous drugs,) resulted in the addiction of countless people suffering from depression, post traumatic stress, anxiety, etc. These drugs are far more habit forming and life destroying than the addictive and dangerous drug named “alcohol” - and addiction to alcohol can never be defended or minimized in any way! In fact, used indiscriminately, these drugs are just as hazardous as any other illicit narcotic found on today’s market.
Consequently, many conscience ‘impaired’ medical doctors, psychiatrists and chemists have become superrich, sophisticated, educated drug lords, while medical aid funds pay billions upon billions to support the addiction of ‘sick’ drug addicts on prescription ‘medication.’
The extremely dangerous, illicit drug PCP (or Phencyclidine,) widely known as one of the “dissociative drugs” used from 1926 to 1965, (and in some countries into the 70s-90s) as an anaesthetic in medical operations on humans, (it is still used in animal ‘care,’) was banned from human use because of its hallucinative “disruption of distinct cognitive functions… overt alterations in cerebral metabolism, [that is brain function] and brain connectivity…” [Medical Journal, BioPortfolio.] In ‘laymen’s’ terms, PCP causes, among the many other complications, cognitive and memory impairment, and amnesia. Today, PCP or Phencyclidine is the most widely used ‘recreational’ drug in the world known as Dip, Angel Dust, etc. As an Anaesthetising, Dissociative or Detaching drug, it completely distances the user with the first inhalation, (when smoked in a ‘dipped’ cigarette, etc.,) from him or herself, the surroundings, circumstances, other people, and above all, from God! PCP, (as most other drugs,) instantly destroys the ‘cognitive’ or religious, moral, and cultural framework of the user!
In effect, PCP or Phencyclidine and all its dangerous relatives do what cognitive psychology does through ‘cognitive exercises’ and ‘re-education:’ it obliterates the Moral Law of God, written on the hearts and minds of humanity!
Similarly, when used long-term and indiscriminately, anti-anxiety drugs or actually, dissociative drugs in the Benzodiazepine class subject people to memory loss and other dangerous complications. Two most common drugs in this class are Alprazolam (Xanax,) and diazepam (Valium,) used as anticonvulsants in epilepsy, in panic attacks, insomnia, etc. Cognitive impairing drugs (among others) are anti-cholinergic drugs such as Paxil, Detrol, Demerol, and Elavil. These prescription drugs and all their deriditives are psychoactive drugs or hypnotic drugs that act on the central nervous system, “affecting brain function, resulting in alterations in perception, mood, consciousness, cognition, and behavior. These substances are also used recreationally, to purposefully alter one's consciousness, or as entheogens for ritual, spiritual, or shamanic purposes, and as a tool for studying or augmenting the mind.”
Entheogens (that allegedly “generate the god within,”) are drugs that actually ‘blow open’ a hole into the reality of the spirit world, (the Fourth Dimension,) effectively connecting the user with demons, who usually pretend to be ‘angels of light and truth.’ False religiosity, hallucinations and prophecy; “transcendence, revelation, (including meditation, yoga, and ritual prayer, psychedelic and visionary art, chanting,) and music (including peyote song and psytrance, traditional medicine,) psychedelic therapy, witchcraft, magic, and psychonautics” flow from these encounters with demons.
When stopped, Benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome multiplies all the effects that this drug first suppressed and supposedly ‘medicated;’ plunging the user into a deep abyss of emotional and physical hell.
Believe the Word of God, people! The Lord Jesus Christ is the Only answer to the spiritual, emotional, and physical ills of this world! He Alone is the Healer and Redeemer. Without Him, there is no Truth, Life, Light and Way; only darkness, deception, and eventually, eternal hell.
WE WERE ALL BORN AND RAISED UNDER THE DREADFUL CONSEQUENCES OF SIN
It is a reality of life that we all live under the dreadful consequences of sin from the moment we are born into this sin-infested, broken world, (Romans Chapters 2 & 3.) Despite what psychology teaches, man is not an ‘advanced animal.’ God made humanity in His Image. Humanity forfeited their peace and holiness at the fall in Eden. Thus, we can only begin to change this sick situation through personal surrender to Christ when we reach the age of accountability according to our No one can hide behind the fact that we ‘inherit’ the sin, troubles, and even sinful behaviour of our forefathers. It remains a reality for us all. This has nothing to do with the occult teachings of regressive psychology or the alleged ‘generational or bloodline curses’ on sincere, obedient believers of Christ, which some denominations teach. Sincerely born again believers in Christ cannot be cursed and sin has no hold on them unless they transgress God’s Moral Law and remain in sin unrepentantly, (1 Jn. 5:18.) Jesus said no one can curse those whom He had blessed. Still, God views unrepented sin in such a serious light He curses those who choose to continue in immoral lives without a personal relationship with Him. Prov. 28:13 declares, “He who covers his sin will not prosper. But whoever confesses and forsakes it, [or repent and does restitution according to God’s commandments,] will find mercy.”
This does not merely pertain to the sin of abuse; it refers to all kinds of unrepented, immorality or moral sin!
Notwithstanding the false doctrine of ancestor curses on obedient disciples of Christ, we cannot dispute that we all gravitate ‘naturally’ towards the sinful behaviour and problems of our ancestors. We naturally ‘fall into’ what we know and learnt. Apart from the fact that we learn from our parents, teachers, friends, spouses, etc., God Himself declared in Ex. 20:5-6, “...I am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, [unbelievers and believers who continue in unrepentant sin] but showing mercy to those who love Me and keep My [Moral] commandments.”
Psychology teaches alcoholism and other types of sinful behaviour that run in families are ‘illnesses’ not sin. For instance, Great-grandpa Tim or Thabo was a violent alcoholic. Grandpa Tim or Thabo was the same. Pa Tim or Thabo followed closely in their footsteps. Generations of Tims or Thabos were also too lazy to hold down a job. They neglected and abused their wives and children, pushed them into dreadful poverty, molested their little girls, beat up their boys, destroyed their families and nearly shamed them all out of existence. Or: Grandma had her brother-in-law’s child and raised him as her husband’s own child. This “illness” skips one generation. Then it surfaces in the third generation, when Daughter-in-law or granddaughter has her brother-in-law’s child, recycling the sin, just as God had warned in Ex. 20:1-6!
Now psychologist say, we should all sympathize with the Tims or Thabos, and Grandmas and Granddaughters, and forget the immense suffering they caused because they all inherited the same dreadful ‘genetic disease’ of alcoholism and sexual immorality, not being able to control their drinking and sexual urges! Its in their ‘genes’ and in their blood; it’s an inherited abnormality, and their ancestors are to blame for it all. Therefore, they are the victims, not their abused loved ones, because they could not help themselves. They deserve the unconditional forgiveness, love and support of all their abused spouses, families, and friends!”
However, if a “generational curse” and “sin-illness” could be excuses for destructive, unrepentant sin, we must disinfect all bottles containing alcohol before the whole human race catches this deadly disease. And we should protect and help all those who continue in destructive sexual behaviour while disciplining all other people for contaminating these poor “victims” with their “negative, impaired perceptions of sin and wrongdoing!”
If sin could be ‘inherited diseases,’ why did God state in the full contextual truth of His Word that life is all about personal choice by the grace of God, (Deut. 30:19; Jn. 1:11-13.)
The old example of two brothers illustrates the reality of free will perfectly. They both had the same mad, alcoholic father. They both grew up under his intolerable abuse. Both were neglected, assaulted, scorned, and battered. The one became a drunkard and abuser just like their father. The other became a dedicated pastor. When asked why they are so different, the drunkard answered aggressively, “What do you expect with a father like mine?” However, the pastor explained quietly, “Well, what do you expect with a father like mine?”
