During the 20th century, three prominent Psychologist made their mark on the world of psychology through their analysis of human behaviour.
Their work has touched many of the ways in which human behaviour is judged and treated. What I hope we will understand after reading my simple article is that our ways are not God’s ways and perhaps take time to think about how we need to respond to what God asks of us, as well as how God’s ways bring practical results in mind as well as body when we follow the example of Jesus.
To put it simply;
1) Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) advocated indulgence in desire as a way of releasing repressed emotions – mostly relating to sex.
2) B F Skinner (March 20, 1904 – August 18, 1990). Declared that there was no such thing as ‘free will’. Therefore there is no such thing as personal responsibility.
3) Alfred Adler (1870-1937 advocated that individuals should seek after power.
THE THREE TEMPTATION. (Matt 4:1-11)
The devil came to Jesus with three temptations as he was fasting in the desert.
1) “…Tell these stones to become bread.” = You are hungry Indulge in your desire. Jesus refused:
2)”… “Throw yourself down. For it is written: ‘He will command his angels concerning you” = Give up personal responsibility.
3) Showing Jesus the world and its splendour the devil promises; “All this will I give you if you bow down and worship me” = The temptation to seek power.
It is striking that even under duress, Jesus refused to indulge in his desire. He declined to give up His responsibility and again declined to seek after power.
Jesus chose to not to indulge in His desire. He refused to forfeit personal responsibility and rejected power.
Choices We Make Today In Ireland:
PRESENT MODERN IRISH CULTURE.
In our present cultural climate, we can see that indulgence, irresponsibility, as well as power, has led our society toward a rejection of deeper values. These values were all dependent on choice. Have we made bad choices?
Freud, Adler and Skinner, Though in other ways have contributed positively to psychology. However, in these particular instances their psychology has embedded itself within Ireland’s, social psyche. It present us with a false understanding of what freedom of choice really means.
Personally and as a nation, we continually face choices There are constant protest and demands made for freedom of choice, when in fact we have always had this freedom.
What we rarely consider is the consequence of choice. The effect of pleasing our desires. The result of evading personal responsibility. The impact of compromising our values to get power.
If we are not scared, we should be.

Serious prayer is when we can raise our hearts and our minds to the feet of Jesus. He hears and answers us in the midst of our concerns. He is willing to show us that He loves us and that he is interested in every detail of our lives.
The Gospel has some great moments of humor. For instance, the time they lowered the poor paralytic from the roof by enthusiastic followers of Christ who wanted him cured. (more…)
