Religion Psychology – A Perspective on Human Beliefs and Emotions


  • Hai Nguyen


First, we define the notion “Creator” as it is used in this article. From there, we discuss two important and contrary human beliefs.
Next, we present the situation of people who deal with troubles. From analyzing the change in their feeling, we withdraw a psychological mechanism describing the struggle between two contrary beliefs and the role of this struggle in dealing with troubles. In fact, this struggle is separated by two basic notions of time in our mind: The Past and The Future. In addition, we discuss the mutual relationship between the troubles relating to the Past and the troubles relating to the Future.
At last, we conclude about the importance of acknowledging and controlling these two contrary beliefs.
