Freud or Fellowship
Sigmund Freud attempted to find ways of penetrating the camouflage that obscures the hidden structure and processes of personality.

Which image you like, according to Freud, defines who you are – the ego and the super-ego. W-h-a-t-e-v-e-r.
God, on the other hand, the one that created you, has an image in mind to create a brand new you.
Your choice, Freud who merely explores the obvious, or God who will create a new you that is nothing like the old you. God is right next to you ready and willing to call into existence what you are not. He who made the Universe out of nothing can create a brand new you out of what you are not.
As it is written: …in whom he believed–the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were. (Romans 4:17)
If you look at yourself, and are humble, you will admit that you cannot live the Christian life. If you turn to God, God, who is all-powerful will create a new image of you. An image which can live the Christian life by the power of the Holy Spirit. How you ask? Well, …go ahead, ask me.
- Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Freud was actually a very wicked individual and it would be in extreme bad taste to write his theories of psychoanalysis in the post – even to refute them. That said, a new self, the image God has for you, is full of His love and life, but you have to be willing to let go of the old one.
For me. once I surrendered that old me, I have never looked back. Fellowship with the Living God beats Freud – hands down.
Never a regret, never a moments second-thought over the decision and never a grumble in trials about the choice to humble myself before the living God.
That holy, that good, that great.
- Jesus replied, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:62)
