Thank you for visiting BibleTherapy.com. This section has articles and information on Biblical Counseling, Biblical Change, Counseling Errors, Sexual Addiction, Counseling Theories and other counseling topics. Our goal is to provide articles and information to help individuals deal with problems and issues from a Biblical foundation and perspective.
There currently are 'hundreds' of psychology theories that differ on how to bring change and what causes personal or interpersonal problems. Most are opposed not only to each other, but take a very unbiblical view of how to help others.
Thank you for visiting. We have a small set of Theology websites that are divided or separated by category (though there is some overlap).

A Real Life Testimony from Our Psychiatric Disorders Conference
CCEF recently held its 2011 National Conference titled "Psychiatric Disorders: A Compassionate Look at Complex Problems" in Louisville, Kentucky. While many attendees have let us know that the conference was beneficial to them in increasing knowledge from which they could draw in their practices and ministries, there were also many stories of personal transformation that took place during the conference. One participant took the time to write to us about their experience, and gave us permission to post it here:

Dear CCEF Staff,
I want to express my deep gratitude for the Psychiatric Disorders Conference that you provided in Louisville last weekend. I have been processing the sessions and want to share with you what a blessing all of the teachings were to me. To best understand how God used the words spoken to “quiet me with His love,” a little background is needed.
An unresolved traumatic event from early childhood catapulted me into a life of fear, anxiety, panic, paranoia, hypervigilance, and hypochondria. In college I struggled with anorexia and experienced severe bouts of post-partum depression after both of my children were born. I have just recently, at age 42, connected the significance of that early event with the symptoms I have dealt with over the years. I came to Christ at age 20 in college and for the past 22 years, I have felt immense shame over my inability to “get over” these symptoms and “get off” medication. God didn’t give a “spirit of fear”…I am to be “anxious for nothing.” All of my symptoms have driven me over and over to cry out to God, to cling to His promises, and to grow in intimacy with Him. But, I always felt I was a disappointment to Him for my powerlessness to change.
Enter CCEF conference…where life giving, healing words were spoken over me again and again and again. Here are just a few of the truths that I am basking in:
We must differentiate between being unable to do something because of WEAKNESS and being unwilling to do something because of SIN.
Thank you, thank you, thank you CCEF for being a conduit of God’s grace.
