Recently I finished up counseling a dear sister. Over a relatively short time the truth of scripture took hold by the work of the Holy Spirit in her life. She now redily testifies that "She didn't need pills but needed what was in the bible." Now there are times where medication is necessary. But we ought to look to find that our Savior died on a cross to not only give us the grace of forgiveness, but to set us free from bondage and effects of sin.
It is my hope that over the next few days these posts will help you to gain insight to the methodology and implimentation of Biblical counseling.
Though there are a myriad of viewpoints in secular psychology, and five main vistas of counseling that use the scriptures as some reference, this paper will focus from the single viewpoint that the bible and its teachings are sufficient in itself for counseling.
