Inadequacy of Secular Psychology

A psychologist was on Michael Smerconish's radio show this morning. They were mentioning studies about how people, under group pressure, go bad. And the psychologist said that prisoners were good people who did bad things. This is where secular psychologies fail.

They don't take the Fall into account. People aren't good. What we perceive as people being good is a thin veneer over our stinking, rotting fallenness. Being put in charge of a camp in WWII or prisoners in Iraq strips all that away, leaving the true self to shine (or stink).

We aren't sinners because we sin. We sin because we are sinners.
