JULY Update
Notes

Dear Friends in Christ,

In the current newsletter we discuss differences between a “Psychological Worldview” and a “Biblical Worldview.” We explain: A psychological worldview encompasses how people think about themselves and others in terms of who they are, how they act and feel, why they act and feel the way they do, and how to change in terms of thoughts, feelings, and behavior from a godless perspective.

Psychological counseling is known as psychotherapy, which is within the field of clinical psychology, which contains the educational training for state licensing and encompasses a psychological worldview. The psychological worldview is embedded in almost 500 psychotherapeutic theories and thousands of techniques. The world of psychological theories and therapies has shaped the thinking and behaving of how most of American society views human nature apart from God.

A psychological worldview from a godless perspective apart from God results in all the psychotherapies being unrestrained by biblical standards and biblical admonitions. In spite of this truth, thousands of Christians are licensed psychotherapists and many more are enrolled in clinical psychology programs with the goal of becoming licensed. The preparation for state licensing includes a large dose of clinical psychology courses, which must be godless and absent the fundamentals of the faith or they would not be approved by the state. Therefore, the counseling conversations are unrestrained by the Bible with respect to content. Most counseling conversations are replete with expressions of Jeremiah 17:9, where the heart of man is revealed as “deceitful above all things and desperately wicked.”

From the counseling conversations we have seen and/or heard and the case studies we have read, we conclude that psychological counseling includes numerous violations of Scripture, such as James 3 regarding the tongue and Proverbs 26:22: “The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.” If one listed only a half dozen Bible verses having to do with the words that emanate from the mouths of counselees, that would reveal that such conversations are sinful to the core.

Thanks to all of you who recognize biblically that the counseling office is not where believers should go to find solace. God has provided all believers need for life and godliness, wisdom and confidence, comfort and peace. May we all encourage one another to maintain a Biblical Worldview and walk accordingly!
