Psychology Redefines Religion

In the spiritually challenging decades between the two world wars, World War I and World War II, psychiatry and psychology grew by leaps and bounds.

It was an era when fear and pessimism had engulfed the globe. An era when poison could masquerade as medicine.

John Dewey, an adherent of psychologist Wilhelm Wundt, and the man who would later pollute America s education system with Wundt s theories, designed the 1933 Humanist Manifesto. Dewey, the father of progressive education, believed that what man had always done was precisely what should no longer be done.

His manifesto denigrates religions and their ability to help solve people s problems. He couches his information in a deceptively mellifluous style and declares emphatically that man does not have a spiritual nature. He declares this with the arrogance of contemptuous authority.

His Manifesto calls for a one world “religion” which was not to be chained to “old beliefs” but to be influenced by scientific and economic change

“There is great danger of a final, and we believe fatal, identification of the word religion with doctrines and methods which have lost their significance and which are powerless to solve the problem of human living in the Twentieth Century”

Religion should be a “human activity” in the direction of a “…candid and explicit humanism.”

A list of fifteen precepts was drafted. These included:

Religious humanists regard the universe as self-existing and not created. Humanist hold an organic view of live Humanists find that the traditional dualism of mind and body must be rejected. Humanism asserts that the nature of the universe depicted by modern science makes unacceptable any supernatural or cosmic guarantees of human values. Humanists say that religion must formulate its hopes and plans in the light of the scientific spirit and method. Humanists say that the distinction between the sacred and the secular can no longer be maintained. Humanists assume that humanism will take the path of social and mental hygiene and discourage sentimental and unreal hopes and wishful thinking.

After World War II humanists went on to say, ” . . .humanists still believe that traditional theism, especially faith in the prayer-hearing God, assumed to love and care for persons, to hear and understand their prayers, and to be able to do something about them, is an unproved and outmoded faith.”

Humanists say that “…traditional moral codes…fail to meet the pressing needs of today and tomorrow… ” Humanists say, “promise of immortal salvation or fear of eternal damnation are both illusory and harmful. .. The total personality is a function of the biological organism transacting in a social and cultural context. There is no credible evidence that life survives the death of the body.”

Quotes from leading individuals in this movement:

“More children from the fit, less from the unfit-that is the chief aim of birth control.”

“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

“Birth control appeals to the advanced radical, because it is calculated to undermine the authority of the Christian Churches. I look forward to seeing humanity free someday of the tyranny of Christianity no less than capitalism.”

Parents! Christians! Church! Wake Up!!! Let s stop going to bed with the DEVIL Himself.

How can we call ourselves Christians and call ourselves Christian Churches and Christian Colleges and go to bed with this philosophy? How can our Christian schools be awarding degrees in this field and related fields such as sociology and still say they proclaim the name of our Savior Jesus Christ?

Michelle Mundy receives college scholarship

Thank-You

“We just wanted to write and thank you for the help you gave to Michelle. Michelle heard you speak at a home schooling meeting. She begged and pleaded for me to bring her to you to be tested…

Michelle has always had a close walk with the Lord and has been praying to attend Bryan College since the 4th Grade. You told me that Michelle would progress and be able to attend college and would probably make you “look good.” She has done very well.

We owe much of Michelle s schooling success to you and your son, Peter. God bless you and your family.”

Love Cindy Mundy
