Well, Christian is being a diciple of Jesus, follower and believer of His teaching (John 14:15-27). So, the one and only Counselor for Chrstian is the Spirit of truth (John 14:16-17). Psychologycal operations may be used in creating target audience(the unbeliever) opinion when we excecute our Christian Great Commission (Mat.28:16-20)as an implementation of our love to God (Deut.6:5-9) since God has said: "For my thoughts is not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways", declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.............. (Isaiah 55:8-13). In Conclusion: Psyhology is a human science, it may gives us a good benefit if implemented in a proper time and space but also may resulted a boomerang to us if it is not used properly. So, the most importan thing is : We have the authority of God with us(Mat.28:18-20) where ever we are and what ever we do in this world.....d cannot be blank
