I wholeheartedly agree. Therapy can be a useful tool for some people, as it can help them to overcome depression or suicidal inclinations. But like anything else, it is only good in its particular context.

I’m a devoted long-distance runner, and running is great as a form of exercise or as a social activity, but it can’t serve the place of a church. Food is vital to human life - it nourishes us and gives us plenty of enjoyment - but you can’t worship food. Many musicians derive immense satisfaction from playing music, but that doesn’t mean music can be a religion either.

By all means, therapy can play an important role in people’s lives. But it can’t play the role that faith plays.
