PSYCHIATRY MEETS ALCOHOLISM MEETS JESUS

From The Works of Carl Jung.
When asked if he believed in God, Carl Jung remarked,

“I do not need to believe, I know.” –(BBC Face to Face)

After unsuccessfully treating the American, Rowland Hazard III, who suffered with acute alcoholism, Carl was convinced that this man had no hope save an intervention from and with God. Rowland took his advice and joined the Evangelical “Oxford Group”. Ebby Thatcher and Bill Wilson were drinking buddies in this clan who would meet together in what would later become AA Alcoholics Anonymous.

Dr. Jung then is indirectly responsible then for AA. He would later say,

“For instance, when a member of the Oxford Group comes to me in order to get treatment, I say, ‘You are in the Oxford Group; so long as you are there, you settle your affair with the Oxford Group. I can’t do it better than Jesus.” (volume 18 Collected Works)
