Unit 1 - Jesus Christ : Unit 1 - Jesus Christ The Lord of Psychology Week 1 January 5-9 AP? Psychology From A Christian Worldview Jesus Christ,The Lord of Psychology : Jesus Christ,The Lord of Psychology In this course on psychology we are making the assumption that Jesus Christ is the lord over all of a Christian’s life. All truth about human nature, including psychological truth, is an expression of God’s mind. All truth is God’s truth. Jesus Christ,The Lord of Psychology cont. : Jesus Christ,The Lord of Psychology cont. The Bible is needed to properly interpret human nature. Acknowledging Christ’s lordship involves rejecting all former gods and submitting to Christ’s absolute supremacy over all of life. Everything a Christian does is to be done in Jesus’ name to the glory of God. Jesus Christ,The Lord of Psychology cont. : Jesus Christ,The Lord of Psychology cont. “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” ~Colossians 3:17 “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” ~1 Corinthians 10:31 Jesus Christ,The Lord of Psychology cont. : Jesus Christ,The Lord of Psychology cont. Submitting to the authority of Christ in all of one’s life was a distinguishing mark of an early Christian. Submitting in this way is fundamental to Christianity. So, as you study psychology, do so submitting to the lordship of Christ, and by doing so you give glory to the Father. The King and the Kingdom: : The King and the Kingdom: In scripture God presents himself not as the deity of a small tribe in the middle east, but reveals himself as the God of the universe. The original humans (Adam and Eve) were created to be the “image-bearers” of God himself. (Genesis 1:26-27) The King and the Kingdom cont. : The King and the Kingdom cont. The Creation Mandate to bear God’s image was to be past down to Adam and Eve’s offspring. The fall of human kind occurred through the deceit of an enemy of God (Satan) who tempted God’s image-bearers into rebellion. Genesis 3 The King and the Kingdom cont. : The King and the Kingdom cont. After the Fall, the image-bearers lost the image of God and became marred in their nature. “When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth.” ~Genesis 5:3 Conflict from a Biblical perspective: : Conflict from a Biblical perspective: Many of the Old Testament narratives are set up as conflicts between God’s servants and his enemies. The New Testament asserts that there is massive opposition to God’s lordship on the earth. Conflict from a Biblical perspective cont. : Conflict from a Biblical perspective cont. The N.T. term world is used to denote humanity as rebellious and hostile to God. John 15:18 – the world hated Jesus. John 17:25 – the world did not know God. 1 John 5:18 – this world has a ruler besides God. John 12:31; 16:11 – Christ’s redemptive actions. Also Gal. 1:4; Eph. 2:2; Rom. 1-3; Eph. 2:1-3 Conflict from a Biblical perspective cont. : Conflict from a Biblical perspective cont. Apart from God’s grace, all oppose God. Becoming a Christian involves being delivered from this “domain” of darkness (Col. 1:13). The Coming Kingdom: : The Coming Kingdom: Jesus came to bring in a new kingdom which was really an old kingdom. Jesus came to bring a reestablishment of God’s lordship over his image-bearers. God’s reign over his people: : God’s reign over his people: Through their godlikeness. His kingdom is presently a spiritual realm. It is manifested in the hearts and lives of God’s people. In His Kingdom: : In His Kingdom: God is revealed to be a king who desires to avoid judgment. God wants to bring his rebellious subjects back to sanity, submission, love, and forgiveness. (Luke 15:11; John 3:16; Matt. 22:1-10) The theme of Jesus’ teachings on the Kingdom: : The theme of Jesus’ teachings on the Kingdom: Not primarily the salvation of humans. It is the manifestation and vindication of the divine glory. It is God’s kingdom – he is its focus and its source. The Kingdom in three stages: : The Kingdom in three stages: Stage 1 – Was being established during Christ’s first coming. Stage 2 – Consummation that will occur when Jesus returns to earth a second time. Millennium Stage 3 - Forever Two Kingdoms in Contrast: : Two Kingdoms in Contrast: Paul’s understanding of history appears to have been shaped by a contrast between a present, evil existence and a coming, new existence in which Paul was already participating. Two Kingdoms in Contrast cont: : Two Kingdoms in Contrast cont: God’s ultimate victory has been guaranteed. Yet human history is playing out a serious conflict between the two ages. The conflict continues throughout this stage. The Kingdom and Psychology: : The Kingdom and Psychology: Many of the major figures in early modern psychology were raised within Christian or Jewish families, but moved away from this religious orientation. They saw their work in psychology as offering more sound alternatives than traditional Judeo-Christian forms of meaning-making. The field of psychology has been shaped (to some extent) by an anti-spiritual agenda. The Mind of the King: : The Mind of the King: God knows all things. His knowledge existed before the world was formed. He knows what will happen in human history. God knows what should be. The Mind of the King cont: : The Mind of the King cont: Two goals for Christians interested in human beings – Understand human nature as it is. Understand human nature as God does. The Christian’s epistemological goal is to understand more of all that God thinks about something. Out of the King’s Mind: : Out of the King’s Mind: The Scriptures reveal that – All creation (including human nature) has order. God created all things and continues to hold them together. Laminin by Louie Giglio Whenever a scientist encounters the creation, they will encounter some of the glory, wisdom, and power of God. From A Christian Worldview: : From A Christian Worldview: God’s mind is the ultimate concern of all science, including psychology. Christ is the Word of God, the singular expression of God’s mind. God’s mind is revealed in creation and in Scripture through Jesus Christ. Psychology is not neutral; it belongs to God.
