Title
A Reply to "An Iintegration of Statistics and Christianity"
Abstract

Kotesky's article, "An Integration of Statistics and Christianity," recommended that the discrepancy between scripturally informed psychological research and using currently available statistical procedures to compare sample statistics against theoretical population values could lessen current practice. The lack of consensus among Christians regarding what constitutes an ideal demonstration of love, honesty, or courage was used to illustrate the difficulties involved in implementing Kotesky's proposal. Judging from previous attempts, satisfactory operationalizing of the commonly accepted standard of Christian perfection, "Christlikeness" was considered rather unlikely. The alternative solution of devising new statistical procedures, which meet our unique needs as Christian psychologists, was offered as a more viable solution.
