I'm confused. Jung said on more than one occasion "I know God exists." From what I can find on the web, the interpretation of Jung's thoughts on God varies from person to person. So I'm wondering if the reason is because Jung's views varied during his lifetime.
Here's a video taken before Jung's death. Pay attention to context. The interviewer asks Jung about church and then immediately asks Jung if he believes in God. In that context, Jung says he knows God exists. I naturally assumed he's talking about the God of the Bible.
Is Jung talking about the God of the Bible? Is he talking about intuition?
Here is a Jung quote, which may have different meaning. I'm not sure. I found it with the vid on the YouTube watch page:
A young female student accused Jung of being an atheist. Jung was confused and asked the student where she had gotten that idea. The student paraphrased a quote she had read in which Jung said he didn't believe God existed. Jung smiled and said "Dear girl, rest easy, When we have a relationship to a particular thing or experience with it - belief/faith ceases to be a factor. The truth is this, I have had the experience of being gripped by something that is stronger than myself, something that people call God. So, I will never say that I believe that God exists. I must say I know God exists!"
