Description

Although there are psychologists who believe that psychology is the answer to all of mankind's mental disorders; there is no one program which will be effective to help fallen mankind. While the scientific knowledge of psychology has its place, it must never supersede the infallible Word of God. Therefore, counsellors should use this therapy very moderately and with wisdom. Moreover, there are not many psychologists from the secular arena who are of the opinion that the Word of God has any place in counseling. Still, counseling is a function and ministry of the Christian church. A few years ago I did a research study which answered the question, "What is the purpose for counseling in the Christian church and the role of psychology in this approach?" In my findings I found that many pastors were not interested in counseling, while others sent the hurting individual to secular professionals who do not acknowledge the fallen state of man. However, one of the most important features of Christian counseling is the truth of God's word which has effect for any condition and helps the entire person: soul, body, and spirit. This sets Christian counseling apart from secular which is based on psychology. The text is prepared for the Christian counselor who wants to excel in the profession with a desire to help the wounded counselee. Dr. Stuart is a Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor who has been in the profession for many years.
