In Psychology and Religion by Carl Jung he questions Sacraments in the Catholic church stating that either the Sacraments are like magic procedure which force God into action, or they that God responds because he has ordained the process.
Is it a magic spell used to compel God to do our will, and if so, what happens if he refuses? Does it mean the Sacrament/liturgy/ritual/faith confession is broken, and therefore useless to all?
If it is something we are doing to be obedient to God by going through a liturgy or process, does this mean God cannot act unless our little actions are completed. In other words, is God's will prevented from happening if I don't use the right words or actions? This would render him much less than a Sovereign Lord of all.
