Why (pure) Psychology is unreliable…
“Man was not made because for himself (man) alone, but because he was made for something greater than himself, the greatest perfection Whom is Perfection Himself- God ... ”
That’s why I cannot accept the reliability of psychology about and pertaining to man because what psychology offers is not (to man) from a accurate truth but rather only a glimpse of it- that sometimes and most of the times it is misleading. If you realize that all the theories and concepts made by different branches of psychology are just from man (man- made) ideals, conceptions, and speculations by man’s mind.
Since the beginning of the fall of our first parents, human defects arouse from the original sin, and also from actual sins as well, also infects the mind since it is a lower and lesser level from the soul. Ephesians 4:18 “ They are darkened in their understanding and alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardness of their hearts. “
By this, we should be in no doubt that our individual minds, without the proper grace and sufficient faith, can fall and err. So I call out to all educated people to not just consider the faith in finding truths about the being and essence of man but also to treat it as above all sciences and speculations.
“Faith for all defects supplying”…
- St. Thomas Aquinas
