PACO 507: Theology and Spirituality in Counseling
Instructor: Dr. Mills
Liberty University

Every believer has a divine appointment and that appointment is a call to service in serving God, and humanity, especially to serve those of the house hold of faith. Counseling is without doubt a very important part of the divine appointment. “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16 NIV).” In James 5:16 that is a form of counseling in which all believers may have fulfilled in some part of their lives. Whether it was ...view middle of the document...

21). However there is a thin line between what the personal goal of the counselor, the counselee’s goal and the biblical truth that can be obscured by self-centeredness (Crabb, p. 22). You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand (Psalm 16:11, NIV). Happiness is conditional but joy is deeply or should be deeply rooted in the life and essence of the believer if he/she is truly seeking to live as Christ himself lived. So comparing what the believer quest is versus what the true pursuit of what the bible teaches in essence, should mirror the life of the believer.
For example, we all should look at the bible as the ultimate truth, and the manifestation of that truth should be reflected in the life of the believer. Another way of looking at it is this, no believer should be taken by surprise when they are tested, tried, or persecuted. Jesus said”, in this life, you will have tribulation.” That is the surety that trouble is coming and always will as long as we are alive in this world.
The development of problems and personal need derives from attention and the lack thereof. Dr. Crabb gave several examples of the consequence of creating bad decisions and as a result of those poor choices, consequently the outcome always result in unaffordability. For example, Mr. A who knew that he should have gotten a smaller affordable home, but instead go a bigger home because, he loved the response and the attention he got from his friends, over practical living. (Hawkins, 1977) I unfortunately found myself in that same paradox. I was involved in an accident with a tractor trailer with minimal damage to the vehicle I was driving.
But because I wanted a newer car, I came up with all kinds of excuses to obtain the car of my desire. Instead of using the settlement money to fix my car and even put more money toward the car to pay it off, I purchased a newer car with higher payments and more interest. The most basic need is a sense of personal worth, an acceptance of oneself as a whole, real person (Crabb, p.62-63). Significance and security are the basic needs of all individuals. If these needs are not met, then that’s when problems and irrational thinking occurs.
Biblical integration is essential to counseling because you are taking Gods view and placing it above your own. This is what Jesus meant by “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God (Gods way of doing things), and all of these things shall be added unto you” (Mathew 6:33). A survey taken by Bergin and Jensen (1990), showed that 72% of the general population claimed religious faith as the most important influence in their lives. However, only 29% of the mental health professionals that were surveyed viewed religious matters as important for therapeutic work with clients (Hawkins, 1999). One goal in teaching from a biblical worldview perspective is to highlight the truth, and reveal the errors.  Through the course of study,...
