A Word on the Goal of Biblical Counseling

See the source image“A Christian counselor addresses a person’s thoughts, beliefs, desires, feelings, decisions, and actions in light of God’s revealed will for how people ought to function. As people relate rightly to Christ through faith in his gospel, their hearts are progressively transformed to relate rightly to everything else – to others, to self, and to circumstances. Being right with God restores right relations to everything else. … While acknowledging human trouble as complex in its dynamic expression, it unapologetically uses old biblical categories like pride, lust, anger, fear, hatred, revenge, foolishness, ignorance, confusion, and suffering.” (Jeremy Pierre and Deepak Reju, The Pastor and Counseling)
