The following fits that category.
Lately, I’ve been getting lots of inquiries about the use of the enneagram in spiritual communities.
Some churches are now using this personality test as a screening device for employees.
Some Christians are upset about this as the test allegedly has some roots in occult practices.
What do I think?
I think the vast majority of all these personality tests are pseudo science garbage.
I had no use for them when I worked for corporate America and have no use for them now.
When I was a younger man we had these things called “newspapers”.
In the newspaper was the daily astrological forecast for your “sun sign”.
Occasionally, it was accidentally accurate because it was vague and general enough to be so.
The enneagram is what happens when you no longer have newspapers…I kid because I care…not really…
Is the enneagram spiritually harmful?
Probably not…Christians have had their own cottage industry since the 70’s with Christianized personality profiles and identity tests that were every bit as stupid as this one.
Lots of Christians used to sneak a look at their horoscopes in the newspaper.
Salvations held up under the strain…
This is where I’m supposed to remind you that you can only find your true identity in Christ and through the Bible… even though the Bible isn’t written about your identity, but God’s.
You should understand who you are in Christ…but we’re talking about apples and oranges here.
Now that I’ve offended everybody, I’m going to go deal with something that matters.
Make your own application…
