Lambert Dolphin is willing to combine the secular with the sacred as expressed in, “Made in the Image of God”. He writes:
The moment we introduce the terms “conscious” and “unconscious” into our modeling approach, we immediately draw into the discussion one or more schools of psychological thought. Since these prevailing schools derive from secular models for the most part, we want to stress once more that our desire is to create a reasonable model in order to better see ourselves. There are a number of Christian teachers today who object to all psychological models and insist that we rely oN the Bible alone for our understanding of reality. We disagree with that viewpoint. As long as the Bible sits in judgment over the knowledge we acquire from observation and secular sources, we can expect to be on a sound track.
The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? Saith the LORD.Chaff is removed from the wheat and discarded as non beneficial so also that which is secular is also worthless.
Observation is different than secular. “It is truth and all truth is God’s truth,” A quote from my Theology professor. Observation for instruction is used by God in the Bible. An example is in Jeremiah 35:12-19.
Observation is good but it must be correctly interpreted. Judah failed to correctly interpret what God was saying and was destroyed.
