Biblical Counseling (Season 3 Episode 28)
This week on the Straight Truth Podcast, the best Christian podcast on the web, we are talking about biblical counseling.
In this episode of the Straight Truth Podcast, Dr. Richard Caldwell and special guest Dr. Nicolas Ellen talk to us about biblical counseling and its purpose and goal. They help us see that, while biblical counseling has its place, it is not sufficient by itself. They guide us to look to the local body of Christ as a ministry with responsibilities and insight that outside counseling lacks. The church’s role involves shepherding people and caring for their souls, not only through the preaching and teaching of God’s Word, but also through the giving of wise, loving counsel from the Bible.
What if my pastor or church doesn’t offer counseling? Can I seek a counseling ministry outside my church? Do I need to seek out a “Certified Biblical Counselor”? These questions and more are addressed in this episode of the Straight Truth Podcast, as Dr. Richard Caldwell and Dr. Nicolas Ellen take us to God’s Word.
