Jungian Psychology teach us that the soul and the spirit are the same thing. He talks of the dualistic compartments of the soul called the conscious and the collective unconscious. In the collective unconscious you will find archeteypes and dark shadows. The Scripture teaches that the archetypes and dark shadows are in fact evil spirits, principalities, powers and rulers of the darkness of this world. (Ephesians 6:12) The Word of God is able to separate the soul from the spirit. (Hebrews 4:12) Wright calls this teaching heresy, truth that is not the truth.
Wright teaches in A MORE EXCELLENT WAY from the Word of God. Teaching sacitfication of the human Spirit. When we finally have it straight upstairs (Spirit), then our bodies start to conform to the Word and the life of the living God. It comes from obedience (2 Corinthians 10:6) where Scripture tells us to have a readiness to revenge all disobedience.
Satan is called the god of this world; principalities and Powers, spiritual wickedness in high places, the ruler of the darkness of this world. We have been called out of darkness. The devil is not omnipresent. Satan is called the prince of the air.
God has not given us the spirit of fear. There is a normal fear God has give, so we don’t play in traffic or jump off a cliff, think we can fly. There is a normal fight or flight pattern God has developed in us.
Are we going to resist the devil today; No we are going to defeat the devil in our life.
