Can Christians Use the Enneagram?

Episode 673 Show Notes 

From the Show

Think about the discussion Paul has in 1 Corinthians 8 where he is talking about meat that is sacrificed to idols. This food was associated with paganism and the occult, and Paul says, “these things do not defile us–they’re meaningless.” If eating that kind of food causes other people, then Paul says to avoid it. While we might do well not to put too much stock in these types of personality tests and hold them loosely, ultimately, it is a matter of Christian liberty.

Can Christians Use the Enneagram?

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. What does it mean for Jesus to also “give us glory,” as he says so in John 17?

2. Did God physically appear to Solomon?

3. If God is good, why does he allow people to suffer and even experience abuse?

4. Should Christians use the Enneagram? I have heard that it has origins in the occult, is this something Christians should be concerned about?

5. Will we have free will in heaven or will we essentially be slaves?
