The Church Has Taken In A Trojan Horse
Evangelicalism has opened its gates to a Trojan horse. This horse is not a literal wooden horse filled with enemy soldiers, but is the teachings of modern psychology. The integration of modern psychology with the Bible is indeed one of the most challenging issues facing the Church today. Some Christian psychologists have become so beloved that to criticize them would be almost like criticizing the Bible itself. While their intentions may be good, intentions are not the issue. The issue is whether today's Christians are mixing men's ideas with the Bible. Amazingly, most Christian leaders today who rightly cry so fervently against false teachings are saying little if anything about the subtle shifts in biblical interpretation that undermine the faith of millions. In many cases it reflects a lack of awareness and understanding of the teachings of psychology.
