How to Be a Miserable Counselor

How to Be a Miserable Counselor

  The horrendous one-another ministry of Job’s so-called “counselors” is a bad example for us to recognize and learn from, but definitely not follow. American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight: An article how the friends of Job proved to be horrible counselors indeed.  The old view that suffering and personal sin are connected.  Suffering as seen through Christ has merit. The friends of Job felt Job had sinned to deserve what had occurred him but were wrong.  Instead Job was a just man.  This was a story of how suffering has merit for others.  Job also became a prefigurement of

Program in Christian Counseling: Pentecost: Common Belief of Protestant and Catholic?

Program in Christian Counseling: Pentecost: Common Belief of Protestant and Catholic?

Christian Counselors and Pentecost This week we celebrated Pentecost Sunday.  What does it mean to Christian Counselors? For Christian Counselors, one of the most important gifts of the spirit is counsel.  The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, mentioned in Scripture, are individual charisms or gifts given to a baptized individual.  These gifts manifest most notably when the person is born again, or in Catholic terminology, confirmed. The apostles were the first to receive this gift on Pentecost Sunday.  They awaited the coming of the spirit as Christ had promised them.  Upon reception, they became soldiers of Christ and truly

Christian Counselors Can Help With Deconstructing Depression’s Taboos

We need to bring the dialog about depression and suicide out into the open, instead of staying in the shadows of misinformation. American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight: A good article on Christian views on depression and suicide.  Christian counselors can help people through suicide with good pastoral care and training. The light of Christ has power to penetrate the roots of depression.  While we are not denying the need for licensed clinical aid as well, one still needs a focal point to find joy and meaning.  Christ can be that joy.  Christians counselors can help people find Christ in

Christ’s Ascension: What does it mean for us?

Christ’s Ascension: What does it mean for us?

Christian Counseling Certification: The Ascension of Christ and How Christians Perceive it For the longest time, Christians believed Christ would return soon.  After his departure, the perscutions of Rome waged on without mercy.  Christ did not come.  Then the fall of Rome and the barbarian invasions which led to the dark ages in the West befell Christendom, still Christ did not come.   Famous dates have come and gone, still Christ has not returned.  What does the Ascension mean to us as we await his return?  How should Christian Counseling address it when someone is always talking about the future instead

The Endangered Arab Christian by Fiorello Provera – Project Syndicate

In the wake of the Arab Spring, Christian communities across the Arab world have been facing a surge in discrimination and violence, driven primarily by Islamist militancy and the rise of political Islam. American Institute Health Care Professionals‘ insight: The persecution of the Christian Church continues, especially in the Middle East…in Egypt, Syria, North Africa, Iran, Saudi Arabia and other so-called tolerant Islamic countries.  Arab Christians need our prayers.  We must remember that the age of the martyrs is just beginning.  A new era of persecution of our Christian brethren has begun. #christiancounselingcertification To learn more about our certifications at

Like Lydia, Do We Share Our Home with Christ?

Christian Counseling: Story of Lydia As the Resurrection season continues, the Church reads from Acts of the Apostles.  One interesting story of relation to us is the story of Lydia.   Christian Counselors should utilize her as an example of Christian action. Lydia upon hearing the words of Paul was moved by the Holy Spirit.  She invited Paul and his companions into her home and worshipped with them.  The faith of God in Lydia was manifested by her works of charity and her action. As within the early Church, today, we must take action.  We must, like Lydia, give ourselves to Christ and

Keeping Our Conscience Sharp

Keeping Our Conscience Sharp

Christian Counseling and a Certain and Right Conscience Christian Counselors need to constantly remind people of sharpening their conscience.  Our consciences can become weak overtime when we are overexposed to secular life and immoral conversation, pictures and friends. With this in mind, it is extremely important to watch our company and to constantly train ourselves to feel the slightly prick from the slightest sin.  By examination of conscience each night, we can review our daily activity and acknowledge if our actions conformed with Christ.  We should not fall into the despair of scruples, but maintain a healthy reaction to each

Nigeria: The Deadliest Place to Be a Christian

  With countries like North Korea, Pakistan and Somalia topping the list as some of the world’s worst persecutors of Christians, it’s hard to imagine that none of these countries hold the highest Christian death toll. American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight: Modern day martyrs defending their faith at the hands of anti-Christ.  This is a sad event of intolerance towards Christians and is very common in Islamic countries, or those countries they seek to overrun. Nigeria is no different.  Split in two by Islam and Christianity, the Islamic element seeks to destroy the Christian counterpart. Much prayer needs to
