Psychology is a theory, philosophy is an opinion. biblical theology is Sovereign God revealing eternal truth.”

When a small group meets it’s essential that the goal be to find out what God is saying. Psychology and philosophy are two disciplines that are often and accidentally placed in the same category as biblical theology. Statements from the world of psychology often sound like wise counsel. Statements from the world of philosophy often sound transcendent. While psychology and philosophy are important to humanity, if anything stated from either of these disciplines contradicts the words of God found in the Bible, ignore them. God’s truth always trumps humankind’s ponderings.
