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).

Following up on my comments about “feelings” as a guide, I’d like to make one other point.
When I taught in the doctoral program at Westminster West, there were students—pastors, I should note—who would ask, “Prof., what do you feel about so and so?”
Often, to make the point, I’d say (with a smile), “Lousy.” Or, if the response seemed appropriate, “Great!”
Invariably, they’d go on to say something like, “No, you don’t understand. What I’d really like to know is what you feel about. . .” entirely missing my point, or unable to express themselves in any other way.
So, I’d continue, “You got my feelings. I’d like to give you my opinion, or belief, or conviction. But what you asked for is feelings.”
People today use weak language—pastors ought to be the last to do so. No one ever nailed another to the door for expressing his feelings. It’s when you state your convictions that they do!
When pastors are willing to speak in such a weak, namby-pamby way, no wonder the members of their congregations have few, if any, strong convictions. Let’s learn TO STAND UP AND PLAINLY DECLARE WHAT WE BELIEVE OR—BETTER STILL—WHAT GOD SAYS!
