Carl Jung in these words are shown to be pro-Gnostic and wanted to merge good plus evil in his dogma. I never agree to these views at all. I wrote these words on Carl Jung many months ago.

Carl Jung
Carl Jung is one of the most controversial figures in human history. It is said that Jung is an descendant of 2 well-known Basel families.His paternal grandfatherwas named Carl Gustav Jung who lived from 1794 to 1864. This man was born inMannheim, Germany and studied medicine at the universities of Heidelberg andBerlin. He came under the influence of two leading liberal Protestant theologians Jacob Fries and Friedrich Schleiermacher. Carl Jung‘s paternal grandfatherconverted from Roman Catholicism into Protestantism, because ofSchleiermacher‘s influence. Carl Jung said that this grandfather was aFreemasons and Rosicrucianism influenced his ancestry.Carl Jung lived for along time from 1875 to 1961. He changed the way we look at the human psyche.He was a pioneer of the New Age Movement. Jung (who had illicit affairs withother women being an adulterer against his wife of 52 years) said that we areentering into the Age of Aquarius. He was a pioneer of dream analysis, which isabout interpretation human dreams. Some have criticized Jung as a medicine
man who utilized discredited scientific views on the human mind. Others praisehim. Carl G. Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist. His disciples called him the"Hexenmeister of Zurich" or the Master sorcerer. He is known to have writtenthat:
“…Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love islacking. The one is the shadow of the other...”-
Carl Jung
"On the Psychology of the Unconciousness", 1917 
 “…Why is psychology the youngest of the empirical sciences? Why have we not longsince discovered the unconscious and raised up its treasure-house of eternal images?Simply because we had a religious formula for everything psychic — and one that is farmore beautiful and comprehensive than immediate experience. Though the Christianview of the world has paled for many people, the symbolic treasure-rooms of the East arestill full of marvels that can nourish for a long time to come the passion for show and newclothes. What is more, these images — be they Christian or Buddhist or what you will —are lovely, mysterious, richly intuitive…”-Carl Jung, “
The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious”
(1934) pgs. 7-8
Some have classified him as a Christian or his father as a Lutheran pastor.This just isn't true, because Jung admitted privately that he was a Gnostic. He evenborrowed elements of his thinking from ancient Gnosticism.As early as Augustof 1912, he wrote a letter to Freud that he believed that Wisdom personified fromGnosticism (called Sophia) would re-enter Western culture by the way of depthpsychology. Carl Jung read the Gnostic work of Pistis Sophia. Jung was a veryintelligent man. He could read Latin, Greek, German, English, and French. Hewas a medical doctor, an university professor, and an early disciple of thecontroversial Sigmund Freud. Jung was the founder of his own school ofpsychology called Analytical Psychology. Carl Jung explored dreams, myths,imagination, and the occult. He “experienced precognition, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, and haunting” (
Harper’s Encyclopedia of Mystical and ParanormalExperience
).His critics contend that he regularly used New Age thought underthe cover of psychological science. Soon, Freud broke form Jung. Carl Jungexperienced a six year breakdown afterwards. Jung believed that archetypes (orfigures from his fantasies) can improve someone's conscious mind. Carl Jungbelieved that one archetype (which he called a daemon or a demon) namedPhilemon would guide him as his "teacher." These are Carl Jung's words abouthis "spirit guide" Philemon: "...Philemon and other figures of my fantasies brought home to me the crucial
insight that there are things in the psyche which I do not produce, but whichproduce themselves and have their own life. Philemon represented a force thatwas not myself. In my fantasies I held conversations with him, and he said thingswhich I had not consciously thought. [?] Psychologically, Philemon representedsuperior insight.” (The Automatic Writings of Jung by Philip Coppens)Carl Jung even worked with his mother and 2 female cousins in hypnoticallyinduced séances. The Bible condemns spiritism and demon contact. Even theBible says that Satan can masquerade as an angel of light. It doesn't matter if aso-called "spirit guide" expresses great intellect. If this being says something thatis blatantly contrary to the Scriptures, you ought to reject that "being"completely. John gave this warning: “Do not believe every spirit, but test thespirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have goneout into the world” (I John 4). He has so much demon contact that Jung claimedto experience poltergeists in his house. Jung wrote the Gnostic book of the SevenSermons of the Dead (that praised the false Gnostic god of Abraxas, whichembodied both good and evil in one). In Scripture believers are admonished to,"give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to bedefiled by them: I am the Lord your God" (Leviticus 19:31).Carl Jung's embrace of the occult didn't end there. He promoted the embrace ofoccult phenomena as apart of the exploration of the unconscious. He coined thescientific sounding word of synchronicity to describe it. Synchronicity can referto meaningful coincidences as well.
He tried to legitimatize divination, the IChing, yoga, astrology, and all manner of psychic practices. This is strange fora doctor to embrace such unscientific methods such as astrology
. Evenautomatic writing has been embraced by some scientists to explore theunconscious. Carl Jung believed that the metaphysical occult world have certaincomponents that is found in all religions, therefore giving the human psycheequal status to all religious views. Jung believed in visualization and in the innerchild (or that even an adult has a representation of a child that represents theway he or she was treated as a child. Jung views it as an archetype. An archetypeis a mental image that are innate in human lives. They can have a life of theirown and influence religious experiences). Visualization deals with using mentalimages and using the mind in esoteric methods (some want to do it for paincontrol, psychotherapy, and other reasons). According to Carl Jung, there is animpersonal "collective unconscious" or a type of library possessing all things everknown. This is present in each person's unconscious. The “collectiveunconscious” is pure myth. Richard Webster wisely observes that “theUnconscious is not simply an occult entity for whose real existence there is nopalpable evidence. It is an illusion produced by language--a kind of intellectualhallucination” (Richard Webster,
Why Freud Was Wrong
, p. 250, quoted from EdHird). According to Don Matzat,

Typical ad hominem attack. I have studied Jung for years. His sources are avaliable. Just because modes of information are from second or third parties doesn't mean that the information is distorted or gravely falliable. Regardless of your tirade, the founded judgment about Jung is that people have the subsequent right to dissent with some of his personal assessment and psychological persepectives
Graeme Sharrock added this note
So many distortions and unfounded judgments in this essay I don't know where to begin. It is so easy to write an essay based on third party information, especially when the writer has clearly never taken a single class or read a single book of Jung's.

In Jung's psychology "evil" is the demonized aspect of wholeness - something regulated to the trash heap as being worthless. Satan (the devil aka evil) is also called Lucifer or "light bringer". It short - it is the feminine principle that has been declared evil by religion.
