What Makes Your Counseling Christian?
Counseling is not Christian simply because the counselor is a Christian. This distinction is significant. This question addresses the practice of counseling rather than the personal beliefs of the counselor. Counseling that is Christian is is founded on the fundamental beliefs. That man is inherently sinful and can only find wholeness, psychological health and purpose in life through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Christ is “the Wonderful Counselor” (Isaiah 9:6) and He identified the Holy Spirit as the “Comforter” (John 16:16-26). Christian counseling may utilize secular observations and instruments for testing and assessment, but resolution, recovery and wholeness are found in Christ.
