The Enneagram – I Thought We Were Done With That Crap

I thought we were done with hearing about this new age crap… I hadn’t heard anyone mention the “E” word since I was making fun of it 12 years ago in seminary… It was – at best – passe then. Now I come to read that someone somewhere is still having to deal with this TOTAL crap in a diaconate formation program.

It just goes to show that there is nothing new under the sun (Eccl. 1:9)..

So below are listed some decent articles to take a look at… Articles I thought for sure no one would be reading 10 years ago because I thought no one would still be messing around with this new age silliness.  80s modernism dies hard in some places I suppose. 

Enneagram: Psychic Babble, The
Mary Jo Anderson (2000?)

The Enneagram: Spirituality It Is Not

NCCB Preparing Cautionary Note on Use of Enneagram

UPDATE:  I am having a problem with figuring out how to delete the “possibly related posts” which are rather unrelated altogether!

    I went to an Enneagram workshop given by a friend’s monther. What c**p!! Yeah, let’s divide the entire human population into 9 personality types. Gee, that makes sense.

    The enneagram did not pinpoint my personality at all. I walked away scratching my head wondering why anyone would buy in to this inaccurate, new age garbage!!
