I have told many people in my life that one of the reasons I love Behavioral Psychology so much is because I believe that God created the human intellect and therefore the behavioral studies that Psychology examines are very much consistent with God's word! HOW COOL IS THAT? So many concepts that I learned in my Psychology classes are things also found in the Bible! I believe that is because God created us and knows best how we "work." The Bible existed long before Psychology did... so I am going to use the Bible as the launching pad for discussing some of these Psychological research findings.
I realize that the intellectuals among us may call this confirmation bias, and perhaps this is true. But my blogging is not an effort to convince you that scripture is true (though I hope it may challenge your perspective). I already admit am biased because of my faith. Rather, as an overflow of my own exciting discoveries, I hope to simply share God's word with you and show you how the science of the mind backs up the scriptural text.
For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. Romans 8:19-20
