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).

So many things make me sad
Recently I received the following letter from a woman who raises searching questions about herself and her experience of life
Have you found that people who tend to be more thoughtful also tend to be sadder? I am the type of person who thinks about every little thing that happens— and sometimes I get really sad.
I'm not sure that the sadness I feel is the type of sadness that lies in self-pity, but I'm also not sure that it is the kind of sadness that is groaning for the return of Christ. Many times I will be sitting down and thinking, "I really wish Christ would come back so I don't have to deal with this terrible sinful situation any more."
Perhaps I am not seeing the grace of God in everything that he has given to me. Perhaps I'm not seeing God for who he is.
Everyone else around me seems completely happy, and I know I put on a good show, too, but is this what life is really like internally?
She asks good questions.
• First, does my underlying sadness arise from having a temperament that tends to reflect on life experience?
• Second, how can I sort out the difference between self-pity and faith?
• Third, is my faith in God supposed to give clarity and consistency in how I look at life?
• Fourth, does putting on a good show express the reality of what is going on?
• Fifth, what is life really like, and so what should my internal experience be like?
These are primal questions.
