In the chosen article, the scientific view of human physiology and the Christian view of human physiology promoted integration where both views contributed to fuller understanding of human nature as well as God’s design for humans. Each has its purpose. The scientific view informed and broadened certain aspects of Christian theological belief (Whitney, 2019). The Christian view broaden, critiqued, and informed features within psychology (Whitney, 2019). Specifically, the doctrine of creation is critical to the integration of psychology and Christianity (Whitney, 2019). Psychology alone cannot touch the extent of learning about personhood (Whitney, 2019). Christian theology provides such resources to learn about the fullness of personhood, especially in regard to the Trinity (Whitney, 2019). I agree with the conclusions drawn from the chosen article. God is the One who created this world, humanity, our bodies, our minds, and our nervous system (English Standard Version Bible, 2001, Genesis 1:26). He knows how they function now and how they were intended to function (English Standard Version Bible, 2001, Psalm 139). He is Lord over it all, even with the presence of sin (English Standard Version Bible, 2001, Colossians 1:16,17). I do not see things as separate but more integrated, more holistic. The article provided illuminating insight to how sin cannot fully taint such created orders and how goodness remains in them (Whitney, 2019). The article also brought encouragement to the work of psychology and of therapy as ways to be about God’s work (Whitney, 2019). If one has the time, I highly encourage one to read it.
I am strongly drawn to physiological psychology mostly due to being a survivor and advocate of trauma and abuse. This following article provided such good and rich insight to the affirmation of embodiment, the goodness of it, and how our bodies work out of a certain order for a reason. Providing information as such, brings comfort and destroys shame regarding such harmful experiences as well as paving the way to better care for others. This article brings further excitement to this course and all we will be learning!
