Several years ago, I happened to come across a sermon by a pastor who delineated several spiritual dangers inherent in the field of psychology. Initially, I was not happy about what I read in this sermon because the writer attacked most, if not all, that I had been taught as a psychologist. But, as the Holy Spirit worked on my heart and led me to further study this issue, I finally had to admit that there are many concepts in secular psychology that are in direct conflict with the Word of God. What an eye-opening experience this was for me!
Dear reader, as you go through this book it is my prayer that you will allow your mind to be opened to the information that will be shared. It is my hope that we, as individuals, will learn that we can turn to God for help with every problem that comes our way. It is also my desire that, on a corporate level, we will realize that God's Word contains all that we need to have a flourishing, vibrant church. All things are possible with God!
