Reflection on psychology and christianity




Description: You will reflect on the relationship between psychology and Christianity as you currently perceive it.




The purpose of this reflection paper is to allow you to think about the relationship between these two disciplines before discussing how others have approached the topic.






  1. The task is to reflect on the relationship between psychology and Christian faith.

  2. There is no required format/content for the reflection, but if you’re having trouble getting started, you might consider the following ideas:


  • Whether truth can be found in either/both;

  • Whether one is more important and why;

  • How psychology is viewed by your church;

  • Whether they should mix with each other; and/or

  • How your experience has led you to this position.


  1. Although you may discuss how your church background has impacted your perceptions, this is not the place to share your personal conversion testimony.

  2. Make sure that your reflection demonstrates critical thinking; it must not simply be a collection of personal stories.

  3. No citations are necessary for this reflection, but feel free to incorporate Scripture(verses from the Bible).

  4. You are NOT graded on your position; you ARE graded on your thinking.
