JANUARY Update
Notes

Dear Co-Laborers in Christ,

Our January-February newsletter continues to reveal the fact that biblical counselors, just as their psychological counterparts, are indulging in sex counseling. In our book Biblical Counseling Reviews (BCR), we expose the fact that the seven biblical counselors included are all doing sinful counseling. Keep in mind that the seven counselors, who claim to be biblical, are among the best-known evangelicals with highly laudable international reputations. These seven counselors are looked up to as the ones to emulate as they demonstrate through their literal (mostly acted out) counseling the best that biblical counseling has to offer. Yet, their best is sinful, because their very conversations and many words violate Scripture.

The current article, “Sex Counseling by Biblical Counselors,” quotes from the sex counseling of four of the luminary seven counselors reviewed in BCR. Whereas twenty years ago this type of counseling by well-known and highly regarded evangelicals was absent and unknown, today these, as well as many others in the biblical counseling movement, blatantly do sex counseling.

Although all four of these celebrity counselors are not sexually explicit in their words, they are sexually implicit in what they are saying to the degree that people know exactly what they are implying! Their sex counseling is one glaring example of how the biblical counseling movement is problem-centered with sin-saturated conversations. We have demonstrated in our writings that problem-centered counseling inevitably leads to sinful conversations. Of the thousands of people who claim to do biblical counseling and the numerous Christian colleges and seminaries that provide courses, someone should be able to meet the following challenge in BCR: “We challenge biblical counselors to provide a word-for-word counseling session or a detailed description of one to demonstrate that they are truly biblical.” To date no one in the BCM has answered that challenge.

We pray that God will open eyes and give His children discernment regarding the difference between biblical, Christ-centered conversations and the sin-saturated conversations of problem-centered counseling. We are exceedingly grateful to those of you who share these concerns and support our attempts to warn fellow believers of this subtle shift from trusting the Lord and His Word to integrating the ways of the world.
