When I was a lad, there were people with "inferiority complexes." What happened to those people? " Did Pennicillin or some other miracle drug cure them? You dont hear about that anymore. Maybe it was Rodney Dangerfield who went to a psychiatrist for help with his inferiority complex. "Your not sick," the shrink said. "You really are inferior."
It is too bad that we have only one word for 'love'. Greek has three. To us we can 'love' apple pie, see two dogs 'making love', speak of homosexual 'lovers' and say that God is love.
A notorious component of sin is the loss of man's sense of responsibility. Adam and Eve ran, hid, covered up and shifted the blame. Adam said, "The woman whom You gave me to be with me, she gave me from the tree and I ate." Eve said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate ( Genesis 3:12,13.) The bottom line is that they were saying that God was to blame.Modern psychology, with satanic shrewdness, destroys as our capacity to know and feel that we have sinned. It spiritually drugs us to where we feel no guilt or responsibility. It numbs the conscience and so dulls the voice of the Holy Spirit in the life.Unfortunately we have during the last fifty years, the philosophies of Sigmund Freud, Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers and many more have been woven into the warp and woof of the gospel message. We speak of the blame game and so it is. Let me illustrate. Supposing I lose my temper. The tenancy is to say, "I got mad because...." "Because" makes someone else to blame and so why should I ask God to forgive me? Any action that requires a decision means responsibility. A drug addict or an alcoholic are responsible for what they do because they have to go somewhere to get their fix/drink (a decision). They know the consequences but have decided that the 'buzz' for now is more important than the consequences later.We know that if we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive and to cleanse from all unrighteousness. But confession will not come until we take responsible for what we do.
