Discussion must be approximately 300–400 words and demonstrate course-related knowledge.

As we consider the broad topic of integration of science (psychology, in our case) and theology, consider this conversation that a student had with his pastor:

Pastor: I know you are studying counseling at Liberty University. As you know, I received training in theology, and I well remember Jay Adams’ famous statement: “Psychology is just sinful human beings sinfully thinking about sinful human beings.” I am deeply concerned about the wisdom of pursuing this degree at Liberty. Personally, I think psychology is secular “mumbo jumbo.”

The Pastor continues: In my opinion, all psychological problems are simply problems of faith, and should be addressed through prayer, repentance, and seeking counsel from the Holy Spirit. After all, you, as a sinner, cannot be expected to help other sinful people–can you? Can psychology really be integrated with theology? What’s your opinion?”

How would you respond to your pastor? In your dialogue with your pastor (“Pastor, thanks for allowing me to answer your concerns. Personally, I agree/disagree. . . “) include the following:

  1. Explain why you agree or disagree with Adams’ quote, based on your understanding of the course materials. Adequately justify your position considering both Adams’ presuppositions and implications for Christian counseling. How does your own worldview largely determine your answer? What does the quote say about sources of knowledge, per Entwistle’s discussion? Your answer will indicate which of the models of integration you support.
  2. Review the reasons supporting the integration of psychology and theology. Based on your thoughtful analysis, what is the one best argument for attempting to integrate the two disciplines?

Make sure to justify and support your answer. Where appropriate, use in-text citations to support your assertions. Feel free to actually create a dialogue with your pastor, or provide your answer in a narrative. For all your discussion board work for this module/week, make sure you draw upon the textbook and presentations to support your arguments, as well as Scripture if appropriate. For your initial post, use citations with at least two sources to “back up” your statements.
