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).

Competent to Counsel, The Revised Edition
Dr. Adams continues to recuperate and undergo physical therapy at a rehab facility near Inman, South Carolina. Please continue to pray as these are difficult days for him. His room does not afford him access to the internet so while he is temporarily exiled to a world without WiFi I am going to take over the blog during the coming week. I plan to spend the week talking about Jay in a way that would cause me grief if he knew. So yes, I will be talking about him behind his back.
Several years ago I began to pester Jay with what I thought was a brilliant idea. “How about publishing a revised, updated version of Competent to Counsel?” I asked naively. “Competent to Counsel II, Competent to Counsel 2.0, Competent to Counsel: The Next Generation” or some such thing.
CTC was enjoying its 40th anniversary and critics were saying it had become outdated. Now, CTC has always had its critics so why I thought critics should be heeded now after 40 years I cannot say. I thought my idea was inspired. Jay was, well, unimpressed. He was too kind to simply tell me what he was really thinking (Arms is an idiot) so he simply smiled and said he would think about it.
Because I was too obtuse to take the hint I persisted and after several months of raising the subject he finally said no but went on to explain his reasoning. While you are certainly more acute than I am I thought you might enjoy hearing his reasons:
What about you? Have you read Competent to Counsel? How long has it been? If it has been awhile, or if you have not read it for the first time, let me urge you not to merely listen to what others say, read it for yourself . . . soon! It is one of those books that you should reread every few years. You can then use my response to people come into my study and see my books. Invariably they ask the question, “Have you read all of these?” My response, “Some of them twice!”
