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).

All Used Up
You are watching a movie. There she is, right on cue. The archetypal seductress appears. The prostitute of Proverbs (6, 7) comes to mind. Follow this siren to your peril because she is taking you straight to her home in the grave. How easy it is to assess her and her motives. Everything is so blatant.
“Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of my pasture!” declares the LORD. (Jeremiah 23:1)
It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin. (Luke 17:2)
There are times, God says, when the sins of other people cause us to sin. In response, he says that he, himself, will replace the wretched shepherds. He will search for his sheep; he will rescue them from where they were scattered, and he will look after them (Ezekiel 34:11-12).
It usually takes just one more question to hear the full story from someone who has suffered like this, though you might have to be persistent. It could be any of these:
What has been done to you that you would feel so unworthy? I can see the hard exterior, what about the inside? You act like nothing can hurt you, but the only time nothing can hurt us is when we have already lost everything. How did you lose your life?
In imitation of our Father, we too want to see those who have been “destroyed and scattered” and look after them with the help of Jesus, our shepherd.
