Most of you are probably familiar with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a personality assessment based on Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types. But could Jung’s theory contain a hidden religious agenda? Let’s find out.
First, let’s examine Jung’s background, because his major theories came from his occult studies and demonic influence. Jung grew up in a religious home that was filled with bizarre, supernatural experiences. Occult researcher Dave Hunt said that “Carl Jung grew up in a haunted house, where the poltergeist activity was so intense that his mother kept a daily journal of the spirit activity.”
This “spiritual” atmosphere clearly influenced Jung, and he developed an intense interest in studying religious concepts. Unfortunately, he soon began to doubt the Christian religion in which he’d been raised. As a result, Jung soon began engaging in various occult practices:
- Jung held séances and even wrote his dissertation on this subject.
- Jung also practiced alchemy, astrology, tarot cards, and consulted horoscopes. He once wrote that “In cases of difficult diagnosis, I usually get a horoscope.” (As you can tell, Carl Jung was a VERY scientific man.)
- The I Ching divination technique was vital to Jung. This is still taught at some C.G. Jung Institutes today, as evidenced in the following course description: “It provides intensive teaching, individual attention and small group work with what Jung called the whole practical use of the I Ching that he felt was a basic and necessary part of his psychology.” (The basis of this man’s psychology is an ancient Chinese divination method? Yeah, let that sink in!)
- However, Jung received his greatest insights from his familiar spirit guide named Philemon, who first appeared to him in a dream. According to Jung, Philemon told him things he had never before considered. Philemon was instrumental in the development of Jung’s theories, and he would address Jung as “Christ.”
Occultism in Jung’s Typology
Considering Jung’s background, you can now understand that he got many of his concepts for his theory of psychological types from occultism and Eastern Mysticism, which he then incorporated into his theory.
“Pairs of Opposites”
First, consider how Jung took the four functions and arranged them as pairs of opposites. Intuition opposes sensation, and thinking opposes feeling. If you have intuition as a dominant function (like INTJs), you’ll have sensation as your inferior function.
But why did Jung arrange the functions as pairs of opposites? That’s what the “spirits” told him! In his book Memories, Dreams, Reflections (p. 190), Jung describes an experience in which “ghostly entities” haunted his house and contacted him.
Jung then describes a series of paranormal events: One of his children saw a figure move across the room; objects are being taken away. The doorbell starts ringing (the whole family heard it), and it was moving before his eyes. Jung was terrified. Then, the spirits speak to him through Philemon, and Jung writes it down as the “Seven Sermons to the Dead” (also called Septem Sermones ad Mortuos).
The spirits told Jung many interesting things that would become a foundational part of his psychology. First, they taught Jung that we are made of pairs of opposites, which represent the qualities of the pleroma, the spiritual realm in Gnosticism:
“The pairs of opposites are qualities of the pleroma which are not, because each balanceth each. As we are the pleroma itself, we also have all these qualities in us.”
This is why Jung sees everything as pairs of opposites, and this concept of “pairs of opposites” is a duality that is a fundamental teaching in occultism and mysticism. For example, a theosophy magazine from 1889 taught that “the fundamental teaching of Occultism, that everything in the manifested world is necessarily dual in its nature” and that “In all things we perceive duality, the “pairs of opposites…”
And Baphomet, a favorite symbol among Satanists today, represents the pairs of opposites that are reconciled into one figure:
- It reconciles male and female into one gender (it’s androgyne, featuring breasts and a caduceus phallus).
- It reconciles man and animal.
- It points up and down, reconciling the cosmic forces with our own world.
- It reconciles light and dark, justice and mercy.
- The “third eye” pentagram represents the reconciliation of the four elements with the mysterious fifth element (spirit or the astral light). It points up to the torch of illumination, which one supposedly experiences when the astral light is produced by the reconciliation of the opposites.
Interestingly, Eliphas Levi, the man who created the symbol, also said the symbol represented the perfect social order that is supposedly found in socialism. What is socialism and communism all about? It’s about the reconciliation of rich vs. poor by abolishing private property. Communism was founded by Karl Marx, who, according to Richard Wurmbrand’s book Marx and Satan, may have actually been a Satanist.
A 1984 article, published in the magazine “Lucifer,” said the following about the pairs of opposites:
“enquirers ask […] Should we resist evils or take them as they come?—when the fact is that all these are pairs of opposites, which must be reconciled, if any progress is to be made. The occultist must be able to pursue either alternative with equal zeal in its proper season, so as to render himself independent of and unimpeded by the pairs of opposites […] Evils should be resisted when it is advantageous to do so, and ignored when ignoring them is the better course (p. 72).”
You see this “duality” concept in Eastern religions such as Hinduism or Taoism, represented by the Yin and the Yang symbol. And that’s the whole point of the reconciling of opposites. Evil is no longer evil, because it cannot exist without good. Therefore, they are just two extremes.
In fact, you need to recognize your evil side and integrate it with your good side in perfect harmony. And balancing the opposites in your life will lead to power or liberation, according to various occult teachings.
The Highest God…
Another thing the spirits taught Jung was that the highest god’s name is Abraxas, the Gnostic god. Remember “Abraxas” because I’ll show you how he ties into all of this later.
But it’s important to know that Jung was essentially a Gnostic. In fact, a man named Dr. Chalquist wrote an article showing that Jung essentially took the Gnostic teachings and translated them into psychology.
What do Gnostics Generally Believe?
- Gnosticism comes from Kabbalah and parallels many concepts from Buddhism, Hinduism, Eastern Mysticism, etc.
- The world has problems because it was created by a lesser, ignorant god (usually identified as Jehovah of the Bible…go figure) who trapped matter (which is bad) with the spirit (which is good).
- The ignorant god accidentally created most of us with a hidden “spark” of divinity, sometimes called the “god within,” “True Self,” or “ultimate reality.”
- Through hidden knowledge (“gnosis”) and self-discovery, which usually involves occult techniques, spirit guides, and reconciling your opposites, we can find our True Self (also called the ‘god within’ or ‘ultimate reality’), whereby we can attain liberation or salvation.
Occultism in Jung’s Four Functions
Next, let’s talk about the four functions, because we can see that Jung also borrows heavily from occultism and the mystical religions with those.
Jung described us as having four functions:
perceiving functions (sensation and intuition), judging functions (thinking and feeling), and the “psychic flow of energy” of each function (introversion or extroversion).
Now compare that to Buddha’s Five Skandhas (or Aggregates), which describe us as a collection of five changing processes:
“the processes of the physical body, of feelings, of perceptions, of responses, and of the flow of consciousness that experiences them all.”
Jung even wrote a letter in which he correlated the Skandhas to the four cognitive functions of sensation, intuition, thinking, and feeling:
- “Rupa-skandha = Thinking.
- Vedana-skandha = Sensation.
- Samjna-skandha = Feeling.
- Sangskara-skandha = Intuition.
- Vijniina-skandha = Buddha Vajra-sattva . Knowledge.”
But here’s where it gets interesting: Jung taught that the four cognitive functions come in pairs that oppose one another (N vs S, T vs F), which creates tension between the opposites.
However, when we begin to balance our functions, a fifth function emerges: the transcendent function. You rarely hear of this fifth function on the typology channels, but the fifth function transcends the opposing functions and unites them together.
Where did the concept of four basic functions that are balanced with an emerging fifth function originate? It has been the foundation of occultism and mystery religions for thousands of years! It’s called the classical elements (or elementalism), and the idea is that all structures are comprised of four classical elements (fire, earth, air, water), which can be balanced and united by a mysterious fifth element, sometimes called quintessence, ether, void, or spirit. The elements are not always literal, but can be symbolic representation of four irreducible qualities.
One occult site noted that if you’re an occult newbie, you “may want to begin with the four elements[,] as they provide a general overview of the occult.”
Elementalism plays a significant role in astrology, alchemy, personality temperaments, secret societies, and the pagan mystery religions:
For example, in astrology, the zodiac types are grouped into four main “element” categories, which correlate to three zodiac types (or triplicities):
- Air: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.
- Fire: Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
- Earth: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
- Water: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
The free eBook (excellent resource) titled Four Temperaments, Astrology and Personality Testing notes on page 46 that:
“The four elements were considered to be unstable and in tension with each other. It was believed that the fifth, though not seen, keeps the other elements bound together, though never in perfect balance. Yet the Quintessence itself was thought to be the perfect balance.”
- The pentagram, a symbol associated with satanic rituals and occult practices, is often depicted as representing the four elements, with spirit or quintessence being the mysterious fifth element that reconciles the elements together. Many occult practitioners teach that developing your “elements” (just like developing your functions) will allow you to cast more powerful spells or contact more powerful spirits, which are represented by each of the cardinal points of the pentagram.
- In alchemy, the four elements made up everything. Creating a perfect balance of the four elements would produce the fifth element, often called the philosopher’s stone, allowing them to transform lead into gold. The fifth element was also called the elixir of life, which supposedly brought about immortality.
- Empedocles, another occultist, correlated the four elements to four gods or spirits. The dominant element (like the dominant function) in your body would produce personality traits that mirrored that of the corresponding god, and you could gain insight into yourself by worshiping or contacting that god, according to esoteric teachings. By balancing the elements, you could achieve greater health, wisdom, and experience “ultimate reality.” The four humors of Hippocrates, as well as Galen’s temperament theory, all contain this same basic premise of the classical elements, and they have been correlated to Jung’s four functions*:
- Air – Intuition
- Water – Thinking
- Fire – Feeling
- Earth – Sensation
*Some suggest that intuition = fire, feeling = water, and thinking = air, and earth = sensation.
- The secret societies also teach the four elements. The four points of the Rosicrucian cross, for example, represent the four opposing elements, and the rose in the center corresponds to the mysterious fifth element. Freemasons have used the four elements in their ceremonies. All of these secret societies have ties to Gnosticism, Kabballah, and the mystery religions.
- Eastern religions teach the four elements as a way of salvation or liberation: “In early Buddhism, the Four Elements are a basis for understanding that leads one through unbinding of ‘Rupa’ or materiality to the supreme state of pure ‘Emptiness’ or Nirvana.”
Many occult or esoteric websites have correlated the four elements with Jung’s functions, with one writer noting that “Carl Jung was the first modern psychologist to identify personality types based on the four elements.”
Do you see how Jung took the occult concept of the four elements with the emerging fifth element, as well the occult concepts of “pairs of opposites” to set up his theory of types? By developing your four elements or functions, you’re practicing the same old occultism. The only difference is that Jung changed some terms and added some details. It’s all based on Buddha’s Skandhas, the four elements, and pairs of opposites!
This brings me to the third thing the spirits taught Jung during his “ghostly” encounter:
They taught him that unless we distinguish ourselves, we “are given over to dissolution into nothingness” and that we must become distinct, a process which they referred to as the “Principle of Individuation” (Sermon I, ibid).
The concepts of “individuation” and “reconciling opposites” became central to Jung’s entire psychology. In fact, the full title of Jung’s book is “Psychological Types: or The Psychology of Individuation.” That’s what it’s really about, and Jung himself didn’t seem to care for categorizing random people into types.
According to Jung, it’s not really a good thing that you are a personality type. Somewhere along the line, you were forced to become a part of the collective. By experiencing traumas or conforming to certain pressures in life, you lost your individuality and became unbalanced. Thus, a dominant function emerged, making you one of many psychological types.
To fix this problem, you must go through Jung’s process of individuation, whereby you will reconcile and balance your opposing forces: your functions, your psyche and instincts, your light side with your dark side, and your conscious with the unconscious. Occult methods such as spirit guides, dream interpretation, and active imaginations will help you find your “True Self.”
And if you do everything right balance all of your opposites, you’ll achieve “wholeness,” find your “True Self,” and realize that you are, in fact, God.
As one person put it:
Jung’s individuation “is a journey to meet the self and at the same time to meet the Divine.”
Jung himself wrote that
“[The self] might equally well be called the ‘God within.’ “
Dr. Jeffrey Satinover is a psychiatrist, physicist, and former president of the C.G. Jung institute in New York, and he said the following:
“[Jung] blended psychological reductionism with gnostic spirituality to produce a modern variant of mystical, pagan polytheism in which the multiple ‘images of the instincts’ (his ‘archetypes’) are worshipped as gods.”
Dr. Richard Noll, a psychiatrist, scholar, professor, and author of the books The Jung Cult and The Aryan Christ, exposed the true Carl Jung. His book won an award and was nominated for the Pulitzer. In an interview, Noll described an experience in which Jung became deified by Salome.
He said that “Jung himself admitted this was a deification experience and that it was absolutely essential for any personality transformation. [Jung] thought that you had to have the experience of godlikeness…of self-deification…of literally becoming a god, experiencing yourself as god, and Jung was there to teach people how to do that.”
Jung also indicated an agenda to “transform Christ back into the soothsaying god of the vine:”
“we must give [psychoanalysis] more time to influence people from many centers […] ever so gently to transform Christ back into the soothsaying god of the vine, which he was, and in this way absorb those ecstatic instinctual forces of Christianity…”
This quote tells me two things: First, Jung knows his theories are antithetical to Christianity (he’s right). Second, Jung is a very clever deceiver who operates in a very subtle way. Just look at how strategic he is. He wants his theories to slowly permeate society so as supplant the real Christ by demoting him to a mere myth or archetype.
And in the book The Other Worldview: Exposing Christianity’s Greatest Threat, Peter Jones quotes one of Jung’s private conversations with his own soul [aka Philemon], in which Jung was instructed to “no longer be a Christian” and that his new calling would be “The new religion and its proclamation.”
What Jung’s spirit guide conversation is a perfect example of what the Bible is referring to when it says that “in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” (1 Timothy 4:1).
If you begin studying the occult, you’ll see the same teachings appearing over and over again after people contact a disembodied spirit. It’s all about reconciling opposites, ascending to higher levels of consciousness, abandoning Christianity for a so-called higher truth, becoming enlightened, and so on.
What is MBTI’s Role in Jung’s Theory (Occult Ties)?
MBTI uses Jung’s concept of four functions as pairs of opposites, which are clearly associated with occult teachings for thousands of years. But what is MBTI’s purpose? According to their own website, “The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people’s lives.”
In other words, they dumb down Jung’s dense, unreadable books and make it easy for everyone to get in on his occult, Gnostic-based theory of psychological types and individuation. That way, you can begin to learn your strengths and weaknesses, and also to start reconciling your opposites.
Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid!
After my “INTJ Dissents” video, someone wrote a snarky comment: “Don’t drink the Kool-Aid,” implying that I’m a religious fanatic for point out Jung’s stupidity and occultism. It’s funny, because Carl Jung can help people become gods, have induced hallucinations, base his major theories on information he got from demons (or magical spirit guides), engage in every occult practice under the sun, and that’s completely normal. But I’m a Christian, so I’m a religious fanatic (of course!).
But the phrase “Don’t drink the Kool-Aid” became popular after some 900 members of a cult drank poisoned Kool-Aid in a mass suicide. The Peoples Temple cult was started by Jim Jones, who taught the following:
“You are god. I’m a god and you’re a god. And I’m a god, and I’m gonna stay a god, until you recognize that you’re a god, and when you recognize you’re a god, I shall go back into Principle, and will not appear as a personality. But until I see all of you knowing who you are, I’m going to be very much what I am. God, almighty god.”
Jim Jones was a communist who once admitted to being an atheist, but he would use passages from the Bible and mix them with Gnostic and New Age teachings to deceive his followers. Who was a Gnostic and is considered the father of the New Age movement? Carl Jung!
The Enneagram’s Occult Roots Exposed
I want to briefly cover the Enneagram, too, because many people who practice typology will reference it.
The Enneagram is a personality system that was popularized by George Gurdjieff, another key figure in the New Age movement. It, too, has roots in Gnosticism and mysticism. Like Jung, George Gurdjieff, Oscar Ichazo, and Claudio Naranjo engaged in occultism, including hallucination and meditation techniques, psychedelics, and contact with spirit guides.
The Enneagram classifies types based on fears and motivations, and the main goal is for individuals to develop into healthy states in order to achieve “liberation” and awaken to the “True Self” (god within).
The “True Self” is synonymous with the term Ātman in Eastern Mysticism. The Atman is defined as “the first principle, the true self of an individual beyond identification with phenomena, the essence of an individual. In order to attain liberation (moksha), a human being must acquire self-knowledge (atma jnana), which is to realize that one’s true self (Ātman) is identical with the transcendent self Brahman [the Hindu concept of god].”
You see this same teaching in all of the esoteric religions. For example, Madam H.P. Blavatsky, co-founder of the occult organization known as the Theosophical Society, channeled spirits who taught her that we have a true divine Self. In fact, look at what theosophy teaches about the Skandhas, which Jung correlated with his four functions:
“the Skandhas are the karmic ingredients which constitute our personal self in each lifetime that we have. They relate to finite, manifested existence only and thus not to our true Spiritual Self, which is literally one and the same in essence and identity as Brahman, the Absolute.”
It’s the same old teaching that we can become a god, we can become the Brahman, we can become the force, etc. It’s all based on Eastern mysticism, Gnosticism, Kabbalah, and the mystery religions.
Do you see what’s going on here with Jungian typology and the Enneagram?
- These concepts are based on Gnosticism, Eastern Mysticism, and occult teachings.
- They try to classify you into a “type,” based on the pagan premise that you have a god within, the divine spark…a hidden Self, which you must discover to achieve liberation or wholeness.
- They teach you their occult methods. With Jung, the occult methods include balancing of the opposites (a duality taught in Taoism, Rosicrucian, Gnosticism, etc.), active imaginations (induced hallucinations), spirit guides, and dream interpretation. With the Enneagram, it’s spirit guides, meditation, and so forth. It’s all the same!
People say to me, “But Ben, I know that Jungian theory or the Enneagram may be based on occult stuff, but it helps me to understand myself.” That’s the point! They want you to understand “Self,” for that’s how you become liberated and discover that you’re a god!
And the whole thing is very clever. It’s like rat poison. Manufacturers of rat poison know that they can’t give 100% poison to rats. No rat would touch it. Instead, they make a block of 99% food, mixed with 1% poison. The rat smells it, tastes it, and then eats it, not knowing that it is ingesting a tiny bit of poison in the process that will end its life.
Jung would observe real traits or behaviors in people, and then try to assign those traits or behaviors to a certain function or “element,” just like Empedocles and other personality theorists have done in times past. In addition, there is a grain of truth to virtually any personality test, because you supply it with information. That grain of truth, combined with a few generalized statements, becomes very convincing to people.
So, people take these personality tests and think, “Wow, that’s so me!” And they begin to study more about “self,” hoping that they can overcome some of their struggles or become self-realized. And most people have no idea that they are gradually being conditioned to think in terms of “pairs of opposites” and “the four elements” dominating their mental processes, just like all occultists teach as a basis for their occultism and astrology.
And you slowly begin to view yourself through the lens of “type,” seeking career or dating advice through the lens of type, classifying everyone you know by “type,” and it poisons your thinking and is a gateway to heavier occult methods taught by Jung and Gurdjieff (spirit guides, psychedelics, dream interpretation, etc.).
The Satanic Connection
Where did this idea that you can become a god originate? It came straight from Satan. Satan used the same lie when he tempted Eve by saying,
“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:5, KJV, emphasis mine).
Satan has been running that same scam in paganism, occultism, and the secret societies for thousands of years. “If you learn the hidden knowledge, you’ll become a god. You’ll find the god within,” whispers Satan.
Dave Hunt, in his book The Seduction of Christianity, observed that “The bait on the pagan hook has always been the promise of godhood that the serpent offered to Eve (p. 12).”
As I mentioned before, the spirits told Jung that the highest god’s name was Abraxas. Occult researcher Linda Kimball noted the following:
“According to ancient Gnostic texts, Abraxas is the astral serpent (Satan) on the tree who gives the illumination of both good and evil to Adam and Eve, whose eyes were then opened. The powerful occult symbol, the Oroboros (snake biting its’ tail), signifies Abraxas, the king worm who rules this world.”
The ouroboros is found everywhere in the occult religions and secret societies. It pays homage to Satan, and it represents the reconciliation of opposites (Gnosticism), wholeness, as well as eternity.
Jung loved the ouroboros symbol, and he wore a Gnostic serpent ring (though he publicly claimed it was a Christian symbol…yeah, right!). This symbol can be found on many of the C.G. Jung Institute websites, and the Wikipedia article for the ouroboros even mentions Carl Jung.
The ouroboros has long-been used in alchemy. And Freemasonry, an organization with ties to Gnosticism and that is alleged to have taught Satan worship, has also used the ouroboros in many of its symbols.
The Theosophical Society, an occult organization that teaches the idea of the True Self that is identical with god, uses the ouroboros in their logo:
And many of you would probably recognize the Enneagram symbol. However, what you see today is not the original depiction of the symbol. The original symbol was surrounded by an ouroboros.
Should Christians Practice MBTI, Jungian Theory, or the Enneagram?
Now, let me just say that I know most of this information won’t come as a shock to occultists, astrologers, New Agers, Jungians, Gnostics, Buddhists, Hindus, etc.
But if you are a Bible-believing Christian (or are looking for something a little more “scientific”), you should seriously consider the information I’ve presented in this article. Since deleting my videos, I’ve found countless ministries online who have ditched the MBTI (or have written books/articles condemning it) after learning about Jung’s true agenda, and I’m going to link to many of them on this website.
Furthermore, many Christians have dabbled in typology, only to find out its occult origins and leave it. Christians are often mocked by others who are “in the know” about this stuff. In fact, one person created a very popular MBTI-based website, and abruptly deleted it after finding out the occult connection. Here’s what forum member “Red Magician” wrote on personalitycafe.com:
“I just accept that most Christians dabbling in MBTI, would run if they knew what Jung really said. Cause most hardly go further than the cute little “Psychological types.”
When non-Christians realize that typology is antithetical to Christianity, it should be a wake-up call to Christians!
Here’s what the Bible says about this:
Paul’s Warning Against Gnosticism
Colossians 2:8 says, “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of this world, and not after Christ.” This passage relates to typology in two ways: First, the Apostle Paul was fighting against corruption by the Gnostics. I’ve shown you how typology largely comes from Gnosticism and mysticism.
Second, the word “rudiments” comes from the Greek ‘stoicheion,’ which means elements (or elemental spiritual forces), and it is referring to the classical elements – the idea that the four elements are controlled by the four spirits or gods.
Occult researcher Martin Edwyn notes that “[Elementalism] is the belief that all life forms are controlled by four spirits (or in some cultures five), which represent the four basic elements of Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. These four elements are at the very heart of the practices of: fortune-telling, divination, witchcraft, astrology, metaphysics and temperament profiling. http://www.breath-of-truth.com/ChristianProfiling.html
Pauls instructs us to stay away from this four elements, balancing your opposites nonsense. It’s a worthless philosophy that will spoil you!
Warnings Against Sorcery / Astrology / Divination
The four elements make up the basis of astrology, to, and the Bible warns against astrology:
“There shall not be found among you any one that […] useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord” (Deuteronomy 18:10-12).
“Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee” (Isaiah 47:13).
Next, MBTI attempts to make predictions based on your personality type: “If personality type is real […], then we should be able to use MBTI type to understand and predict people’s behavior to some degree.”
This is a form of divination (see above) based on ‘mental processes,’ which is modern-day palm reading or elementalism.
“Oh, you’re an INTJ? You’ll probably want to study computer programming and marry an ENFP,” according to some articles. Everyone seems to think Arnold Schwarzenegger is an INTJ. I never see bodybuilding or acting as a career for most INTJs, but that seemed to work out okay for him. Imagine if Arnold had taken a personality test and resigned himself to a career in programming.
While it may not feel like divination, reading someone’s “type” and predicting their careers, behaviors, dating matches (ENFP and INTJ), stresses, etc. is no different from astrology charts, palm reading, or the I Ching. It is all divination based on the four elements (or mental processes, as they call them now)!
In addition, the Bible warns against contacting “familiar spirits” (see Deuteronomy 18, above). Both Jung and the Enneagram founders consulted spirit guides for their information and encourage others to do the same.
Finally, the Bible says to examine ourselves, but only to see if we are living in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5). Otherwise, we are to deny ourselves, take up the cross, and follow Jesus Christ (Matthew 16:24). The answers to your problems are not “within,” they are without (in Christ). They don’t come from self-knowledge, but by knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord, who paid the penalty for our sins by dying on the cross, so that whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
Let’s Recap What We’ve Learned:
- Jung abandoned Christianity and revealed his agenda to turn Christ back into the “soothsaying god of the vine.”
- He received the information for his theories from his demonic spirit guide, who also happened to mention that Abraxas (aka Satan) was the highest god (of course!).
- His concepts parallel fundamental teachings found in occultism and mysticism, including the “pairs of opposites” and “the four classical elements.”
- The premise of both Jungian theory and the Enneagram is that finding your True Self (based on the Gnosticism/Mysticism) will lead to liberation…to finding that you are god or have a god within, which has always been the promise of Satan.
- MBTI is based on Jung’s theory, uses the functions and pairs of opposites, and states that their purpose is to make Jung’s theory easy to understand and useful in people’s lives. In my opinion, to promote or teach MBTI is to promote Jung, which is to promote occultism and an antichrist agenda.
- Because people choose which options on a personality test fit them best, there is a grain of truth to typology (“the food”), but it’s not that accurate.
- Problems of mistypes, changing type, and questioning people’s type persist, even among so-called experts using the same model. Jung himself seemed to indicate at times that he was an INTP, at other times an ISTP, and at other times an INFJ. Personally, I don’t think Jung even knew his type half the time.
- MBTI used to say INTJs have Fe as the tertiary function, now we have Fi.
- And in the end, typology will corrupt your thinking in many ways (“the poison”).
There are a lot of nice people who get sucked into typology without knowing about the occult connection, and I’m not claiming that the Myers-Briggs organization has an underlying occult agenda. For all I know, they may be unaware of Jung’s occultism.
Nevertheless, we have to ask ourselves: Is Jung’s theory a scientific tool to help us understand how we perceive information and make judgments?
Or is it a clever deception that is based on information he received from ghostly entities, which mixes truth with lies, occultism with observations, and is all designed to condition people’s minds to think in terms of four elements and opposites–the same old occult/gnostic philosophy that supposedly leads to enlightenment and godhood?
Hmm, I wonder…
I’ll be adding more resources to my website to expose this stuff. Thanks for reading / watching!
