What is “Psychology?”

Most people don’t know the differences are between “psychiatrists” and “psychologists,” and

Both of those groups are confused about their histories & their roles.

To be candid, even when I went off to graduate school, I continued to evidence my naivete regarding the two and the differences thereof.

“Ology” means “the science of.”

And very few psychologists know this but “psychology” means

“The science of the soul”

or

“The study of the soul.”*

In modern man’s quest for further separation from God, he has assumed that

The “soul” is a term best forgotten!

:-(

How ignorant & how arrogant modern man is!
