Here is a funny Madtv clip that has been floating around and causing laughs for a while (my mom loves this).  However, there is value in what this psychologist says, though lacking gospel-love.  We tend to go over board in psychologizing our sin, when, all we need to do is stop it.  We are not sinners because we have been mistreated in the past, we are not stuck in our sin because we have been doing it since we were young; rather, sin is sin and you are guilty.  However, we have been bought with a very high price and set free from the power of the law to condemn.  Paul puts it this way, “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal bodies” (Rom. 6:12)…in other words, “STOP IT!”
