In order for the anti-Christ to enjoy a serious world-wide following prior to the return of Jesus Christ, a new man-centred religion must replace Biblical Christianity, not so? We know that our lives are ordered and controlled by our thoughts. Our collective individual thoughts make up our belief system. Satan knows this all too well and put it to the test with Adam and Eve. They thought, after Satan’s little discussion with them under the forbidden tree, that if they disobey God and eat the fruit, they would attain divinity. Today we experience the consequences of believing that lie in all the horrors we see around us. Satan still uses the same ploy and found a very willing candidate in Carl Jung. We already saw how he turned his back on Christ and the Church in the previous post. Now we will look deeper into the abyss of psychological and blasphemous evil he sank into. Yet his teaching are found and heard in Christian gatherings all over the world. Psychology has become the religion of the modern world!
We already know that Jung was inspired and led by a demon spirit called Philemon. There is a website dedicated to this demon at https://www.philemonfoundation.org/about_us/philemon
After discovering a book on spiritualism in a friends library while young, Carl Jung was at first sceptical but also open minded and had the following to say; “The observations of the spiritualists, weird and questionable as they seemed to me, were the first accounts I had seen of objective psychic phenomena.” (p. 99, Memories, Dreams, Reflections)
Soon he was into attending seances and experiencing all sorts of strange manifestations in his own home. The following pages of MDR, 106,190, 229-230 confirm this. As far as Jung was concerned psychiatry/psychology was his new found religion;
“Here alone the two currents of my interest could flow together and in a united stream dig their own bed. Here was the empirical field common to biological and spiritual facts, which I had everywhere sought and nowhere found. Here at last was the place where the collision of nature and spirit became a reality.” (p. 109, MDR)
The development of his early theories was a result of; “I read like mad, and worked with feverish interest through a mountain of mythological material, then through the Gnostic writers, and ended in total confusion.” (p. 162, MDR) In the process of this research, Jung began to observe “the close relationship between ancient mythology and the psychology of primitives” (p. 162). Thus begins the descent into a “religion” grounded in mythology rather than historical fact and/or truth. Here already we find absolutely no basis for anything scientific. He merely started developing a belief system based on his own experiences and thoughts through what he read about myths.
Then along came gnosticism and alchemy as well. Jung describes his interest in Gnosticism and alchemy as an attempt to “find evidence for the historical prefiguration” of his “inner experience” (p. 200, MDR). His studies of the Gnostic writers revealed that “they too had been confronted with the primal world of the unconscious and had dealt with its contents” (p. 200, MDR). Then came alchemy, “the historical link with Gnosticism”:
“Alchemy formed the bridge on the one hand into the past, to Gnosticism, and on the other into the future, to the modern psychology of the unconscious.” (p. 201, MDR) Gnosticism is an ancient heresy replete with theological and christological horrors. It was condemned by the early Christian church. However, its teachings haunt us again today in the form of New Age theology, which Jung has helped to popularize.
The more I read Carl Jung’s works, the more I realized that it was all about himself, and his own dreams, reflections on them as well as the occult experiences that flowed from them. In so many places he used biblical phrases and symbols but distorted them to fit into his own religious experience. The dogma was contrived as the dream developed. There was nothing absolute and no ultimate truth. How scientific?
The dogma, according to Jungian theory, is related to “unconscious” material: “The dogma is like a dream, reflecting the spontaneous and autonomous activity of the objective psyche, the unconscious.
Such an expression of the unconscious is a much more efficient means of defense against further immediate experiences than a scientific theory.” (p. 57, MDR)
Jung is not concerned with objective truth outside the psyche (such as the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ), but only with the internal world of man, particularly the “unconscious” as expressed in dreams and such. Thus religious dogma: “…presents the soul more completely than a scientific theory…expresses aptly the living process of the unconscious in the form of the drama of repentance, sacrifice, and redemption.” (p. 57, Psychology and Religion)
Jung was being used by evil spirits to persuade his followers that what Satan has promised is now in fact becoming reality. By refuting God’s truth man discovers his own truth and sets himself up as god. His religious experiences is all in his mind and soul and none of it relates to what God has determined as dogma. What God has revealed is dispensed with so that Jung’s psychology can replace it.
A new (but not really so new) form of idolatry occurs in Jung’s writings, wherein the imaginations of the human mind are deified: “…the gods in our time assemble in the lap of the ordinary individual and are as powerful and as awe-inspiring as ever, in spite of their new disguise–the so-called psychical functions.” (p. 102, PR)
I believe this is enough for now. In part 3 we will show his antagonism towards Christ as well as the horrific blasphemy that eventually permeated this man’s soul. Yet like the others in this modern day Babylonian Empire this man was elevated to iconic heights through the prevailing intellectuals of his time.
