Christian maturity is often spoken of in preaching and other discussions. The problem of this thesis is to distinguish exactly what the nature of Christian maturity is in contrast to psychology's view. This is to result in the display of the distinctive character of Christian maturity.

The main burden of this thesis is to sharpen the lines of Christian maturity in contrast to psychology. It is not intended to be a definitive explanation of how the mature Christian reacts in a given situation but to determine the guiding principals in a mature Christian's life.
