Mental Health Treatment That Excludes Jesus Christ

trees1Psychology is not a pure “science” as we know it.  It is based upon man’s perceptions of what is normal behaviors and feelings, upon their social norms and morals, and what is known about science at the time they are seeking treatments, including medications, for their clients.

The field of psychology cannot explain what goes on in a human brain that leads to a person’s behaviors.  It has been explained in a master’s degree level psychology course that “psychology is a type of science, but is also an art”, because mental illness and brain activity which may cause mental illnesses and behaviors are not truly understood. 

Medications are only testing grounds for the doctors who prescribe them.  They may work for a short time to help a person feel better but may cause them to act out violently or feel suicidal, or may not work at all in helping a person feel well.  Doctors frequently change medications and their doses that only serve to mask symptoms at best.  It is thought that some people may have to remain on psychotropic medications for the rest of their lives in order to function, but that they will probably not be cured.  People are left waiting for the next new drug in hopes of being made well.

Labels are used in mental health treatment which are often given a client in therapy based on their feelings.  If enough feeling-related symptoms are cited by a client they become diagnosed according to the criteria cited in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), which is the “bible” of mental health practitioners and doctors.

In the courts, unacceptable behaviors get explained away by a description of some earlier life’s experience, such as being mistreated in some way as a child which often times are offered as justifications for why a person did some criminal behavior, in order to sway a judge to hand down lessor sentences.

Behaviors can be explained away by how a person “feels” at the time.  Anger, depression, sadness, can be described as the basis for why a person behaves badly.  Seeking medication can seem to be the “cure” for feelings being expressed, presumably to inhibit further misbehaviors.

These man-man treatments leave out God – Our Lord Jesus Christ – from all equations in treating mental health.  Unless you go to a Christian therapist or doctor you may not find any words about Jesus and the bible included in your treatment in mental health therapy.  Even then, most mental health practitioners are licensed under state laws.  You must pass the exams of the state licensing behavioral boards of science in order to practice, or be working on a license, or have a licensed supervisor who holds authority over what you are able to do in the field.

As we know, state licensed mental health clinicians of any kind do not have to have any experience in knowing Jesus; they do not study the bible to learn anything about Christ, or how he teaches us to obey God according to Scripture.

As I write this post which seems ragged around the edges because I’m sitting in the public library, it is hard to imagine how anyone can be a healer in mental health and offer treatment without any guidance from God; Our Lord Jesus Christ.

How Spiritual Truth Is Lost In Dangerous Teaching Of Secular Psychology

good-friday-3243347_640Broadly speaking, I truly believe that in talking with people who are understanding, and taught to take themselves out of the dialogue where they give time to support a person who may seek counseling through them, may be very helpful.  We all need support at different times in our lives so I do not want people who seek therapy to feel discounted by what I write below. 

Much can be said about how people can help one another by just listening, or offering their guidance and support based on their experience and education, some reliable research about brain chemistry and physiological health, and there are many areas of specialty that are called “modalities”, that may be helpful for some but not others.  Having the love from the Father is not present, I believe, at least in my training to become a licensed Marriage, Family and Child therapist as well as from my education in a doctoral program to become a Licensed Psychologist.

My interest in this blog, mainly I think, is in why I don’t want to be a secular therapist because in diagnosing people we don’t ever speak about Jesus, nor what can be done to really help heal a person when there is much more involved in a person’s mental condition than what I’ve been taught in my studies. 

Secular humanism always goes back to the person healing themselves.  The focus is on us and not asking the Lord for His help.  We are able to live in ways that help us stay healthy but we Christians rely on Jesus Christ to help us live in this world daily.  We are not of the world as Jesus said in praying to his Father: 

They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. – John 17:16

Psychology practices the belief that goes against the belief in Jesus Christ – it is anti-Christ –  they leave out God completely.   This may be counted as secular humanism and as a Christian believer I think there is danger in this non-belief in all areas of life.

More information about the spiritual realm has been brought to my attention that I think should be followed, discerned and understood.  Factual knowledge from the bible tells us that Satan and his demons are real.  Any of these spiritual beings operate in a realm we do not understand; they are supernatural have been called “interdimensional” by the likes of researcher and Pastor LA Marzulli.

Marzulli’s work speaks to advanced technology of “nephilim hybrids”, and how human DNA could have been carried on into humanity after the flood.  One example of many of his posted works can be seen here:  L.A. Marzulli: Nephilim Hybrids, with host Gary Stearman.  As you may know, Marzulli’s house was destroyed completely in recent California fires, that some have wondered whether they were started by beam technology through the gas and electric company, PG&E.

PG&E is said to be owned by the Rothschild’s.  As of today, you can see that listed on the PG&E Corporate Directors page, Roger Kimmel, is listed, also as “Vice Chairman of Rothschild, Inc.”

As is said by Targeted Individuals around the globe and many others including conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones (is he really a conspiracy theorist?), the Rothschild’s are people behind the One World Order, and meet at the secret Bohemian Grove meetings where “globalists” have met for years, plotting their ways about how to reduce the world population, among other topics.

Now, the reason I have gone ahead down this road here is that in my recent studies of “unclean” spirits and the evil spiritual realm, and how they have interacted with humans – and even animals dare I say – is to see the connection between how mankind is evilly trying to reportedly kill off the human race and how evil spiritual entities, having more advanced knowledge and abilities than we humans, can teach humans how to target people and with advanced technology – leaving people unaware that this is happening to people around the world, and that these people are labelled negatively, and are thrown into mental health wards, treated like they are mentally ill and under some unrealized mental traumatization such as being raised by a cruel parent or something to that effect.

I am known for long, run-on sentences.  Perhaps I should use better sentence structure and write in shorter, non-run-on sentences.  

Say that the Nephilim were the hybrids born from the women who were taken as wives by Lucifer’s angels.  The bible says that the flood destroyed the earth because people had become so evil.  But were the spirits of these awful creatures also destroyed?  That is a huge part of what I am saying, that we don’t speak of satan, and demons, as having been destroyed in the flood. This topic is never allowed to be discussed as part of secular education or training in the field of “psychology”.  

I am leaving out huge amounts of information I am learning through the many pastors and researchers online and I invite you to do your own research into these topics of spiritual evil, the Nephilim and who they were, who the “tall Anakim’s” were (Deuteronomy 2:10), Satan, and the boy who was inhabited by demons that Jesus called out of (Mark 9:14-29) as a starting point.  

This is related to the field I have left behind because the spiritual teaching of the bible is left out of diagnosing and Jesus is never mentioned, and I believe the field of psychology has led many people away from learning through the bible and the healing that is offered through the teachings of Jesus as a man who walked the earth, being also fully God, and through belief in Him, and through prayer.

If these evil spirits have technology that mankind can only dream about since they are from the fallen angels that God threw out of heaven, what can they teach mankind who are not believing Christ to harm their fellow man?  How evil can it get against humans?  If Satan and his demons can inhabit, lead and direct humans, it is not a hard concept to understand that this has gotten into the realm of psychology.  That is my fear and that is why I stay away from secular humanistic thought which the field of psychology is based upon.

Again, for people who suffer from strange manifestations, including “hearing voices”, having things or people suddenly disappear, seeing things that are in the spiritual realm, feeling things that touch and even push them physically, feel pain of electricity shot through their bodies, feel inhabited by “other beings” that they know are not part of themselves; these strange manifestations are reasons that I feel the need to explain to the field of psychology why they must open the doors to exploring Christians and their faith in Jesus Christ. 

These psychology professors and instructors in secular psychology are not usually going to have read the bible, nor believe it.  I was one of those.  One may ask, how does the field of psychology resonate with your dreams and auras, after all?  Isn’t that what it directs a person to; finding their own spiritual paths for what will heal them?

It comes down to teaching the Christian faith to those who seek and not everyone will seek to find Jesus Christ, nor to understand the Bible and its history.

I feel it best to share my truth as found in the Bible rather than continue to ignore my faith in the field of psychology.  I cannot continue down this path that I know to be detrimental to so many people’s lives.  Their lives and wellness are at stake. 

I applaud the men of God who explore the biblical teachings referring to the Nephilim.  These people lead us in the right direction, expose the truth about how technical advances may well be led by the spiritual realm, as well as teaching the need for God today.

 

Catagorizing Satan’s Tricks Of The Mind

brain thinking areas

Today I was reading a psychologist’s blog post who categorized what biases we have in thinking, and called them “cognitive biases”.  This psychologist, which will remain unnamed, listed several ways that people make the wrong judgements about things so that they are fooled by one thing or another.

He first begins by saying that with all the thoughts running in our heads that “our judgment would be highly accurate but that’s far from the case.”

It seems to me that this man does not know God and is exactly why I jumped out of psychology wondering how I would pay the student loans back.

Forgive me God, for my sin of thinking man’s accurate opinions of why we act and think as we do is something we can “cure” right off the bat or prescribe meds for.  A few sessions and you’re done and that’s all it takes, is what I thought.  If one wanted to heal and improve themselves, just giving the time of day to a therapist is the cure… admitting one’s mistakes, doing writing assigments or journaling, or some therapy or other and telling the therapist secrets and emotions one is having will help cure a person.

Certainly having friends to talk to in an emotional time can be helpful.  But friends are not what cures.  Only Jesus can. 

Here are some Scripture verses I found quickly doing a google search of bible verses about mental health.  I am sure there are many more than these:

The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delight in him; – Psalm 37:23

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. – Psalm 119:105

in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your path straight. – Proverbs 3:6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. – Proverbs 3:5

In this article, there are 13 types of bias that cloud the thinking.  As I said, this is written by a man studied in the world of man-made psychology, who studied like I did, wanting to know the inner workings of man’s mind, and try to heal it.

Some examples the psychologist used to describe biases in one’s thinking are:

The decoy effect, where one makes choices by judging an extreme, then taking what’s in the middle, when they know it costs too much, as a rationale for allowing themselves to buy an expensive thing that they normally wouldn’t have.  The example in this case is when a car dealer shows you a much more expensive car than you would be able to buy and rationalizes that the mid-level, but yet still too expensive car that costs less isn’t so bad a buy.  So you buy the mid-range car, instead of buying a less-expensive car that would be more in line with your budget.

The affect heuristic effect, where we base our decisions on our emotions.  He gives an example of a number of people who have died due to a disease as seeming more horrible than given as a percentage, which was not a clear picture of the number of deaths as the number 1,286 was.  The number of dead people aroused much more emotions in people than the percentage did of 24.24%.  People couldn’t picture that percentage as much so didn’t have the higher emotional response.

These are but two examples of the catagories he has given to some biases poeple have.  Of course, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) that people use to diagnose mental illness in people is a catalogue of symptoms people can report over a long period of time. 

The DSM is full of changing diagnostic attributions or symptoms, called “disorders”, making its way through time as social standards and ideas of acceptable behaviors, feelings, emotions, ways of identifying oneself, calling them “traits” which may be deleted with new versions of the DSM or can change in degree of importance and accuracy over time.  Diagnostic “V” codes can be added or subtracted, depending on how many people on deciding boards who edit the DSM into new versions every so often are convinced that a thought process, or some kind of issue a person has, should be categorized as being “not-normal” and relates to mental illness.

The problem as I see it is; unless it is an organic problem, it is a tumor that makes a person act strange, then the mental health diagnostics used are based on man’s ideas or concepts of what mental illnesses are.

They do not have the guidance of God; it is a Godless industry, created by man.

The bible did not have Jesus diagnosing mental illnesses.  He said the person was inhabited by demons or upset tummies were treated by drinking a little wine to settle the stomach.  There were not categories of how sick a person was, no variety of types of mental issues.  There was sin and there were the demons and everything else would have been a medical condition causing a person difficulty; people have sores, the lame, the blind and the like.

Everything was healed by God; Jesus healed many but not all, but he showed that he was God.  He performed healing miracles and brought people from the dead to life with people witnessing these things.  He proved he walked as one with the Father who created mankind and universe.  See my Basic Gospel No One Told Me When I Was A Non-Believer.

I have come to know Jesus and have followed the path of belief and trust in His wisdom, and it seems He is appealing to me that the field I got into and practiced as a mental health clinician was sadly wrong, and not the right path for the mind.  A favorite passage I refer to is;

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7

Everything else is man’s concept of the reality of life and is not the way of God, and the field of psychology cannot know the wisdom and reality of God’s wisdom, power and healing strength.  It just falls short and may have been invaded by Satan’s lies.  In fact, I’m a believer that it is the realm of the devil now and has no basis in the reality of what may be happening to a person’s mind – and health.

Mental health has been a real interest of mine, but as I have said before, when I entered the field I had no concept of the Lord Jesus Christ, really.  I may have wanted to help poeple heal and I had a sympathetic heart, but I needed God to show me the reality of a person’s soul.  They are not saved and so will fall into eternal judgment and God’s punishment.  They need to know God; the Lord Jesus Christ, who really heals and promises a sound mind through His Holy Spirit who resides within us; true believers of Jesus Christ.

Prayers are needed that more will come to the reality of God and the Son who walked the earth for us, to save us from our sin and from being bought, led, and taken over by Satan.
