I expect we’ll be seeing more of this:
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
-Ephesians 4:29-32 (ESV)
…Even secular psychologists practise what they call “Cognitive therapy” or the idea of telling yourself the truth. Cognitive therapy seeks to replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts. For instance, instead of a person thinking they are “stupid” they should tell themselves they are “smart.” It seeks to replace negative, error thinking with positive truths. …
In reality, what cognitive therapy and the positive confession movements have hit on is the truth that we need to correct our thinking and negative speech with more positive truths. This is biblical.
And a fundie will lead them. Therapists, hello, do you understand the appeal, here? Hint: When the religiously insane endorse no other psychotherapy but CBT you might hit the social theory a little harder before proceeding to shove it down my secular throat, and ask how you became a tool of the encroaching American theocracy. I repeat, this is biblical.
And this is a chip off the ole Rockpile:
