Although Tolkien would not have put it this way, a purely psychological account of man ignores a vital dimension of our existence, namely, that in which we are able (with the help of divine grace) to transcend our biological and even psychological existence. This process—termed in the Christian tradition not individuation but divinization—involves an additional discernment, not just between the ego and the Self but between the Self and the false self. This path is not one of balancing the elements and forces of the psyche alone, for at the level of the spirit we are part of a greater whole even than that of the Self. The false self can only be distinguished once the Self has been found, and at that point we are powerless to achieve the quest without help that comes from beyond ourselves.—Appendix 1, An Archetypal Journey: Tolkien and Jung.cf, http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p3s1c3a2.htm
So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).
