Unfortunately, many Christians today who hold to the authority of God’s Word falter when it comes to counseling. Brad Bigney highlights the foundation from which most counseling today is derived, and reveals how the basic principles are often contrary to God’s Word.


Does your church give counsel to people based on a hybrid of secular psychology and the Bible?

The field of counseling has been dominated for the past one hundred years by psychology and a therapy industry, but long before Sigmund Freud’s ideas spread across America, the Puritan Christians were using their Bibles effectively to do what they called ‘soul care’ – addressing the struggles of people facing depression, grief, marital issues, anger, addictions, and more.

The word ‘psychology’ comes from the words ‘Psuche’ and ‘Logos’ which means ‘a word about the soul.’ Who would have a more accurate and timeless word about the soul than our Creator God in the Bible? Unfortunately, many Christians who hold strongly to the authority of God’s Word still falter when it comes to counseling, even “biblical counseling.”

In this message, pastor Brad Bigney highlights the foundation from which modern counseling is derived, and reveals how the basic principles are often contrary to God’s Word. It’s time for God’s people to turn back to God’s Word when it comes to counseling those who are suffering and confused by life in this fallen, broken world.
