The spiritual battle we find ourselves in is not only for the young. Conscription into this war is not age-based. The battle is joined when you lay down your rebellious weaponry and surrender to Jesus as Lord. At that point you are assigned new weapons which you are required to familiarize yourselves with and become proficient in. You will need them for the rest of your time on this earth. There are two in particular that we are assured are capable of defeating our terrible enemy, Satan–by their judicious use, he will be bested and finally overcome. But, they require us to imitate our Master’s life as well as His death.

Our Jewish forefathers had no difficulty identifying the opposition. They were the perverse Canaanites, the Gentile nations, cruel oppressors, unjust leaders, or lying and deceptive acquaintances bent on tearing them down to nothing. But, if C.S. Lewis is correct when he notes that “Christianity is a fighting religion”; if we wake up every morning on an actual battle field, in “enemy-occupied territory,” who or what do we fight against? Who is our enemy?

In Treatment paints us no rosy picture of triumphalistic Freudian or Jungian therapeutic models vanquishing the insidious and crippling terrors of the inner mind. It is brutally honest at that point. And quite a few others, as well. But, what the show cannot divulge, and I doubt ever could, is the ultimate vanity of a materialist psychotherapy which treats people as machines, or animals, rather than amazingly complex, spiritual beings crafted by a Creator in His own image and likeness.
