As a concerned Christian, I would like to fervently respond to the following paper which was delivered at the CAPS Convention in Virginia Beach, Virginia entitled:
THE USE OF THE MYERS/BRIGGS
INSTRUMENT IN SANCTIFICATION
OF LIFE AND MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIPS
John H. Stoll, Ph.D.
Executive Director, ASK, Inc.

Dr. Stoll proposes that your marriage can be sanctified by the Meyers-Briggs test even though the Bible states precisely that we are sanctified by the Word of God. Ironically, he uses the very Scripture to support using Myers-Briggs which should be used to refute its use. If the Word sanctifies and perfects us, "He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word" (Ephesians 5:21-26) then what can Carl Jung/Myers-Briggs add? He also states that Christians should be treated equally, but most Christians were never administered the Myers-Briggs test either today or before it existed, so how is that equal treatment ("There should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care, one for another" (I Cor. 12:25). Now, the only difference I can see between MBTI & Carl Jung himself, is that MBTI uses numerology to codify and number the results of the personality profiling. To sanctify means in part to make holy. How do you make something holy with something which is unholy?

As you all know, Myers-Briggs is based on the theories of Carl Jung. So, I invite you to test the spirits to see if they be of God and re-examine whether or not his ideas are truly Biblical and whether or not a Christian Counselor or Pastor can truly implement these tests. I will prove to you below from Jung's own words that his personality profiling was derived from a demonic spirit-guide named Philemon. The Bible calls this Divination and is forbidden by the Lord.

In addition to my article below, I encourage you the read the following two scholarly articles on the Paganization of Christianity.

I invite you to consider the following documents which prove the Clear and Present Danger of Carl Jung and Psychology which has already become the Trojan Horse and Strange Fire within the Body of Christ and has become a central theme to the Church Growth Movement through Bill Hybels at Willowcreek and Rick Warren via his Purpose Driven Church.

I appeal to you all to consider two Scriptures with respect to the use of Meyers-Briggs and Personality Profiling in counseling:

"Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come "Behold, they shall be as stubble;..." Isaiah 47:13. "Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?" Matthew 7:16 "For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes." Luke 6:43-44 "Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so [can] no fountain both yield salt water and fresh." James 3:12
"Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils." I Corinthians 10:21
"Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful." Psalm 1:1 (Carl Jung was clearly ungodly and unbiblical in his ideas)

Finally, I humbly submit to you the following verse in the hope that I might actually recruit you to become part of a vanguard to your colleagues, members, and those you counsel to fear the Lord in considering this Scripture:

"Whoever causes one of these little ones to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18:6

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Kindest regards in Christ,

James Sundquist
