Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Freud But Were Afraid to Ask
Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) collected idols of pagan gods and kept them all around his rooms. Christianity, he said, “is the enemy.” The connection between occultism, socialism, relativism, and therapy runs deep. Freud was intensely involved in the Occult all his adult life, consulting soothsayers, attending séances, attempting telepathy, and becoming a devotee of Astrology. He was also a cocaine addict.
Instead of human unhappiness being caused by alienation from God, it was only due to sexual repression, according to Freud's grand theory. The goal was to take the most hideously unnatural sins that were condemned by every society on Earth as unholy and unthinkable and proclaim them to be natural. His central thesis was that psychological disorders are the result of constraining our deviant sexual desires. One could say that to Freud a psychopath is a natural man.
It was Christianity that was the problem to be overcome by Western Man so that he could finally be free and happy. “I regard myself as one of the most dangerous enemies of religion, “ he wrote. Freud also said, with his typical arrogance: “I stand in no awe whatever of the Almighty. If we were ever to meet I should have more reproaches to make to Him than He could make to me.”
One of his influential ideas is that evil chooses men; men do not choose evil. That frees man from moral responsibility for his choices. No one should ever feel guilty but should work to rid himself of feelings of guilt. Any restrictions on behavior are tyrannical, according to this view.
Freud saw himself as a new Moses the lawgiver, and as a new messiah—setting men free with a new secular religion.
Freud, Faust, the Devil, and the Witches Brew
The truth is that Sigmund Freud made a pact with the Devil, who revealed ‘psychoanalysis’ to him. The epigraph to Freud’s most famous book reads: “If the gods above are of no use to me, then I’ll summon powers from hell.”
Freud told his colleagues that he was the Devil. He was a Satanist. His chief aim was to convince the world that there is no moral law, no sin, no crime, and no responsibility—only mental problems that require therapy. First and foremost, he promoted the idea that sex is purely biological and has nothing to do with morality. Sexual perversion is not immoral, therefore, but liberating.
Even the far left wing extremist New York Times claimed Freud was issuing “a direct invitation to masturbation, perversion, illegitimate births, and fornication.” The leftist magazine the Nation said he had “an ingeniously obscene imagination” and was “a peddler of pornography, a sink of salaciousness, and in general about three shades worse than the mayor of Gomorrah.” Freud, of course, responded that anyone opposed to his ideas was afflicted with repression and sexual inhibition.
Throughout his life, a constant, foreboding theme is his relationship with the Devil and the Anti-Christ, according to one of his biographers, Paul Vitz. His library was full of books about Satan and the Occult. He firmly believed in ghosts and poltergeists.
Faust was his favorite literary work, in which Dr. Faust—who makes a living providing fake cures—does a deal with the Devil, mostly so he can have sex with a beautiful, innocent, pure, religious teenager named Margaret. The Devil delivers, and the girl is ruined, eventually drowning her baby and going insane in prison because of her shame.
Now the crucial part of this diabolical tale is that Faust never says what he did was wrong, never expresses remorse, never confesses that anything he has ever done was sinful, but still, he goes to Heaven. Meaning: The Pact was worth it.
One highlight of the story is a gathering of witches from around Europe for a wicked, orgiastic celebration with the Devil (Mephistopheles) on the night of April 30th. Now this date, April 30th, would become the night that Sigmund Freud first took cocaine, in 1884. He consumed it in liquid form, a ‘witches brew' according to the Spaniards who first discovered its use among Indians in South America. He got the devilish drug from Emanuel Merck—the grandson of Goethe’s model for Mephistopheles when he wrote Faust.
Dr. Freud regularly used pure, unadulterated cocaine in large doses for twelve years, which produces potent drug-induced altered mental states that include fantasies and hallucinations. More than one biographer of Freud has concluded that he was in these states when he created his theories about psychology. Cocaine use is still known today for producing psychosis in which one thinks he has discovered the secret to life. And is famous for causing an obsessive preoccupation with sex.
Although Dr. Freud presented himself as a scientist, he had virtually no interest in science, saying that his interest was "to investigate the origins of religion and morality." Freud saw himself as creating a replacement for confession, writing: "Confession is liberation and that is the cure. The Catholics knew it for centuries. I boldly substituted myself for the confessor.”
His ideas about the subconscious were designed to explain away the Devil and demons. Many times he noted the similarity with his concept of the “subconscious” and demonic possession.
Another of Freud’s favorite books was The Witches Hammer, which precisely outlines how to make a pact with Satan by renouncing God, Christ, the Church, and the Bible—which Freud did. But he artfully concealed his motives from the public.
In his letters, Freud writes of his “constant need for self-censorship, since most people are not sophisticated enough to understand.” When he was told how popular his latest book had become in 1901, he replied, “Not even if I had them by the scruff of the neck, I swear, would ever these people smell the devil.” He saw himself as working for the powers of darkness against the Lord.
The Root of Freud's Atheism
It is highly likely that Freud was sexually abused as a child, hence his preoccupation with childhood sexuality. The man was personally obsessed by incest. He wrote in a letter: “Unfortunately, my own father was one of these perverts and is responsible for the hysteria of my brother and those of several younger sisters.”
Here we see a cause of the father hatred at the bottom of his theories. And father hatred as the root of Freud's rejection of his father's Judaism. Freud closely related the concepts of God and father, as in God the Father. He wrote of “the intimate connection between the father-complex and belief in God. A personal God is nothing other than an exalted father.”
The psychological basis of his atheism was that God no longer seems real once your father’s authority is undermined. Behind many atheists today we see shame, disappointment, or anger towards their fathers, with disbelief in God a sort of revenge on their earthly father. Atheism is often an expression of psychological pathology.
Freud: the Antichrist
Freud admired Mussolini because like himself Il Duce hated Christianity. Even though he was Jewish, Freud famously wrote, "The Nazis? I'm not afraid of them. Help me rather combat my true enemy: the Roman Catholic Church."
He did later write of the Nazis: "The fact is that the Gospels tell a story that is set among Jews, and in fact deals only with Jews. The Nazis’ hatred of Jews is at bottom a hatred of Christians. The German National Socialist revolution finds such clear expression in the hostile treatment of both of them."
Isn’t it interesting that the Antichrist is seen as a false messiah, who is a Jewish man, known for false cures and miracles, and works to destroy belief in Christ? In Freud's library are Anti-Christ by Nietzsche; Anti-Christ by Renan; and The Anti-Christ Legend by Boussett. Here is Sigmund Freud in his own words: “Do you not know I am the Devil?”
Arnold Zweig knew Freud well and wrote of him in 1930: “Analysis has reversed all values, it has conquered Christianity and disclosed the Antichrist.” Freud accepted this as true and wrote, “I have no attraction to Christianity with its lie of salvation.”
He saw his life’s work as to debunk and denigrate the sacred. It is obvious, as Paul Vitz has said, “Freud had a life-long neurotic obsession with religion” even while he sneered that religion itself was a “universal obsessional neurosis.”
The Future of an Illusion: Christianity is the Illusion and It Has No Future
Freud’s most powerful and influential attack on Christianity was his 1927 book The Future of an Illusion, in which the illusion is Christianity, and it has no future. Among his thoughts: "Religion is the child-like condition of humanity." As Vitz says, "The interpretation of religion as an illusion thus allowed him the pleasure of interpreting religious belief as other people’s problem, not his own loss. “
Freud’s diabolical writings give the distinct impression that he is an expert on Christianity. But what is little known is that he never had any Christian patients, except for one little old lady, of whom he said, "She always received me as if I were the Devil; she was always armed with a small ivory crucifix.”
Most of Freud’s patients were like himself, born Jewish by blood but Atheist by adult choice. He appears to have known no religious Jews - adherents of Judaism - as an adult at all. There is no evidence that he ever read the New Testament or the works of major Christians writers.
By the 1930s, Freud's invention, psychoanalysis, became a lucrative business. Wealthy women latched onto it, "satisfying their need for attention, flattery, and someone to listen to their malicious chatter," as Clare Booth Luce, a big fan, put it.
Before long, Hollywood caught on. After all, Tinseltown was (and is) full of neurotic people who needed someone to explain the meaning of life to them, and they had plenty of dough to pay for it. Soon psychoanalysts start to appear in movies, without exception as a suave, sophisticated intellectual who’s got it all figured out and is a savior figure for the lost.
While he made no positive contribution to the world, Freud’s ideas still permeate the classroom, mass media, and the therapy business. Who hasn’t heard of his terms, such as repression, anxiety, guilt complex, libido, and penis envy? By rejecting religion, morality, and fatherhood, and reducing love to sex, he unleashed a plague upon modern society.
Psychology is the only profession that creates the diseases it claims to cure. Before Sigmund Freud came along, no intelligent adult could claim his own actions were not his own fault.
Psychology created a new man, one who is blameless for his faults and not responsible for them because they come from his childhood, when he was indeed innocent. Since psychology was created in Christian society, there is no question but that Christianity is its target, what it seeks to displace. A sinner is told to “Repent!” by Jesus but the psychologist says there is nothing to repent for; only things for which you need therapy at $250 an hour.
After World War Two, it became unfashionable to think that heredity had anything to do with how one turned out. Instead, it must be social forces, especially bad family environments. It became accepted that it was only bad childhoods that made for delinquents and criminals. And so the Social Worker Revolution came.
Christian volunteers had done social work for centuries, but the new paradigm was that Freudian psychology would work better—that social work should be done without Jesus. Soon, this idea was being applied to juvenile and adult offenders and it was observed that criminals have other conduct disorders as well as committing crimes, perhaps mental or nervous abnormalities.
The mind doctors generally concluded that rather than beset by spiritual problems, felons are victims of psychic trauma in their past, that they might not even remember. The remedy was to establish a system of psychiatric clinics alongside all courts and prisons, and to allow mental experts to guide judges and prison officials in their treatment of those who misbehave.
Some experts said prisons should be eliminated altogether and replaced by mental health rehabilitation centers, since criminals were not truly blameworthy for their foul deeds. Even the famous atheist lawyer Clarence Darrow argued in court: “There really is no such thing as crime; therefore there is no such thing as moral responsibility.”
Thomas Szasz, the famous atheist psychiatrist, admits what psychology really is: “The clever and cynical destruction of the spirituality of man.”
The good doctor had a lot more to say, as well, about important things, such as that ‘mental illness’ is just a term to describe unwanted behavior and what is wanted and unwanted behavior is a judgment call not a scientific fact. ‘Mental Disorder,’ he called a ‘weasel term,’ and ‘drug addiction’ not a disease but a ‘social habit.’ A disease is something a person has; behavior is what people do. Szasz taught that diseases are "malfunctions of the human body, of the heart, the liver, the kidney, the brain" while "no behavior or misbehavior is a disease or can be a disease. That's not what diseases are."
Calling people diseased denies them responsibility as moral agents with free will. Disease can be seen during an autopsy - but not voted into existence by members of the American Psychiatric Association.
Szasz said, “One of Freud’s most powerful motives in life was to inflict vengeance on Christianity.” And he called psychotherapy “a fake religion that seeks to destroy true religion.”
Secular psychologists Keen and Reiff described psychotherapy as “a kind of national religion, with a gospel of self-fulfillment and with therapists as the new priests.”
Note that psychology often promotes itself as the solution to the same problems that the Bible addresses as spiritual issues to be solved by entering into a relationship with Jesus. A person who does not believe in Heaven cannot possibly show you the way. Since man did not create himself he cannot comprehend himself unless he consults his owner’s manual, which is the Holy Bible.
Jesus said you must deny yourself to be saved. When I was young, self-centeredness was considered a grave fault. Today, it is at the center of our culture: self-love, self-esteem, self-acceptance, self-forgiveness, self-awareness, self-image, self-confidence, self-worth, self-control, and self-improvement.
It is an odd thing that people in the mental health field seem to suffer from many psychological problems themselves. Every fourth psychologist admits to having considered suicide and they commit suicide at twice the rate of their patients.
Freud killed himself, but before he did he said, “Patients are nothing. We cannot help them.” And as Professor of Psychiatry Al Parides notes, “If you look at the personal lives of all Freud’s initial disciples they have an unbelievable amount of particular problems in the sexual area. The amount of deviancy as far as their sexual behavior is enormous.”
And yet these are the same people who decree: “Parents should be licensed to have children only upon demonstrating a sound understanding of truths dispensed by psychologists.”
Freudian Ideas Permeate Our Culture
Freud used Darwin's ideas as a base from which to launch his destruction of Christian morality. His views of human nature underwrite the ‘anything goes' culture we have today. To him, nothing is more important to a man than sexual pleasure, whether he admits it or not. Christian morality imposed rules on sexual behavior and to Freud that had just about ruined everything.
One of his principal ideas was that the only reason we are repulsed by any taboo such as incest is that we so very badly want to do it. According to Freud, every person wants to have sex with his or her mother, father, sister, and brother. In order to explain this, he invented what we call the ‘subconscious,’ something there is zero evidence even exists.
Only 5% of American psychologists/psychiatrists believe in the Creator God of the Holy Bible—the lowest of any profession.
It was Freud and his followers who encouraged us to sexualize everything and to think about and talk about sex all the time. And in all his works you will not find the word ‘responsibility.'
Sigmund Freud, a militant atheist, worked to undermine belief in God, angels, and demons, so he made up substitute ideas about the mind. His fundamental theory was that all of the world's problems result from males repressing that they want to kill their fathers so they can have sex with their mothers.
His ‘science' has long since been discredited, but his phony theories are still incredibly influential in our culture, in how we unknowingly think and see things. When you hear that we are nothing but animals; that whoredom is the key to happiness; that hedonism should be your aim in life; that we all need to be therapized to get rid of guilt and shame—the tools God uses to bring us to repentance—thank Freud.
What Works and What Doesn't Work
The ideas of Sigmund Freud “are now firmly planted in the unexamined beliefs of the average man and woman,” said Harold Bloom, even as they have been completely discredited in the scientific community. Research shows that the more mothers know about psychology, the more trouble they have raising their children.
Another study shows that people in the mental health field—whose jobs it is to solve our problems—have no fewer problems themselves and no less trouble with their children than the average parent.
We must remember the original claims of this profession: If only we had enough professionals and billions of federal dollars we would see an enormous decrease in depression, suicide, divorce, and crime. Instead, we have suffered from ten times more of all social pathologies since we stopped turning our troubles over to the Lord and His Church, and turned instead to the godless mental health industry.
Psychiatrists say that the most common cause of suicide and mental illness is unresolved guilt. But they never recommend the only therapy that truly works: Telling their patients that God loves them and will forgive them of everything they have done if they will just believe on His Son.
God can cleanse your conscience and set you free; free from sin, guilt, shame, and the wages of sin: Death. Since man cannot live with guilt, he will try to justify what he has done and what he plans to do. We sin willfully, which naturally leads to guilt unless you are a sociopath. You can turn that into Godly sorrow, which leads to repentance. Confess to God that what you have done is wrong. Ask Him to heal you and He will.
