Is it normal for a Christian to contact a psychologist?

Answering a Facebook question: “Is it normal for a Christian to contact a psychologist?”

In principle, it is normal, but there is a problem: We want to cope with temptations, and many psychologists want to tempt us (such as “helping” us to sleep with as many women as possible). It’s impossible to work together when goals are opposite. But if there is any agreement, even an unbelieving psychologist or psychoanalyst can seriously help. Psychoanalysis is a scientific approach to the problem of sin and I don’t see much difference if a person is cleansed of sins by Christian ministry or by ordinary psychoanalysis. I do not see any such problems with Christian psychologists.
