Non-Christians and Christians alike often embrace a low-view of God, and consequently a casual view of sin and Scripture. Instead of perceiving God as "most high" they attempt to make God subservient to man by thinking of "Man as Most High". This low view of God is reflected in their attitudes of the heart.
If our minds are to be transformed to think Scriptural beliefs about God, we must also have a biblically accurate view of man. The evolution of psychology as detailed in this booklet, focuses on men and women and their needs rather than God. We must evaluate our thinking of ourselves as "Psychologized Man".
Point: The author would like to "help us all clearly understand what's wrong with 'Psychologized Man Most High'." (Found in Introduction)
Path: Peace shows how she experienced working in a facility where many people were told that they were mentally ill, and there was no hope. She shows how Sigmund Freud, Abraham Maslow, and Erik Erikson's views and theories of man have taken the place in the minds of many people that belongs to the Bible. She shows helpful charts of these theories alongside with God's Word actually says about them.
Agreement: This is an extremely helpful little booklet (an excerpt from her book Attitudes of a Transformed Heart). It is short enough to read easily in one sitting and has just enough information to help the reader understand the importance of focusing on God's Word as authority and not on man-made thought. Many believers fall into the trap of believing a lot of lies that are clearly contradictory to God's Word.
Personal App: It was encouraging to read this as it is easy to fall into the trap of just assuming something to be true since you have heard it many times. I must continually exercise the habit of going to God's Word to double-check what I am hearing and reading.
It would be worth another read and I would recommend it. - S. Grotzke
