About This Workshop

Considering the tumultuous days in which we live, psychology is probably one of the most critical topics for Christians to study. Why? Because it is concerned with the health of the mind – a subject that the Bible addresses more than twice as often as it does love. The Proverb says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so he is.” Romans 12:2 adds, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…” The way we think affects our behavior, therefore we need to be very aware of the ideas we’re taking in so that we aren’t deceived and misled, and we must warn our children of the same! Bertrand Russel was a highly revered philosopher, educator, and atheist in the mid-20th century. He wrote:
"I think the subject which will be of most importance politically (over the next 50 years) is Mass Psychology. Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. It will be used most successfully in the area of public education. Where all children go to school, and all schools are controlled by the government, the authorities can close the minds of the young to everything contrary to official orthodoxy… Education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished”
Again, our children must be warned of this strategy of the enemy of our souls!
