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

Want to Become a Christian Counselor: Where is Our Vocation?

Want to Become a Christian Counselor: Where is Our Vocation?

Christian Counseling: Daily Life is Where We Will Find Our Vocation So much time is spent in Christian Counseling hoping to discern a vocation.  Should I marry or enter the religious life?  With such uncertainty, counseling can offer ways to find discernment.  The Ignatian model of discernment is an excellent way to discern spirits and vocations, but today, I do not want to focus on aides of discernment.  Instead I would rather emphasize what we already know–that we are called to know, love, serve God and our to love our neighbor as ourself.  No vocation will ever flourish unless we

Christian Spiritual Counseling Certification Program: You Are Already Forgiven

Christian Spiritual Counseling Certification Program: You Are Already Forgiven

Christian Counseling: Sin is Forgiven, We Need to Only Seek Forgiveness Christians as they go through life bear much guilt.  While non-believers will mock Christian guilt over sin as a psychological malady, we know much better.  Christian Counselors can help their spiritual children by emphasizing that while guilt leads to contrition, it can also lead to despair. The reality is we are already forgiven.  We need merely to tap into the sacrfice of the cross and bathe in the precious blood of Christ.  The grace is already there and the payment for the sin has already been paid. We sometimes

How to Pray in the Midst of Crises

How to Pray in the Midst of Crises

How should we respond in the midst of crises? The short answer is: by praying. Here are some examples from the Psalms. American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight: In our most turmoil, we sometimes do not realize that God is closest, but he still needs to hear our prayer.  This is when prayer is most beneficial.  In these moments of desolation, Christ and God is very close to our heart.  We may not realize it, but we are being carried in these moments. St Teresa of Avila teaches that when we feel most abandoned is when Christ is most near.

St Theresa the Little Flower would offer up her daily duties to God.  Whether as menial as sweeping the floor to taking out the garbage, she offered it up to God.  The crosses that we choose,

Can a Person Be Overly Righteous?

Can a Person Be Overly Righteous?

  Can “be not overly righteous” in Ecclesiastes 7:16 really be saying what it seems to be saying? Does God actually want us to tone down our righteousness? American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight: The pharisees showed this type of behavior.  When we look at our goodness from ourselves instead of God, we find danger.  We can merit no good of our own accord but only through the Holy Spirit and divine grace. When we enter into a “how glorious am I” type attitude we become the pharisees.  We see only our virtues and everyone’s vice.  We do not see

Christian Counseling Certification: What is a Petrine Relationship? In Christian Counseling, do ever notice different types of Christians who possess different characteristics in their relationship with the Lord?  One relationship to view is Peter. When we look at Peter and our Lord, we see a definite relationship that was special beyond the other apostles.  It contained certain qualities of leadership, inspiration and a deep bond.  This unique relationship played itself out from the very first time Christ and Peter went aboad his fishing boat to Peter’s ultimate end and martydom in Rome. Peter as a Leader Peter is seen as

The Rhythm of Forgiveness and Repentance

What the Lord’s Prayer teaches us about the practical effect of the gospel in us American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight: A closer look at the depth one must seek to forgive their brother and sister if they wish to be forgiven themselves. This is key in Christianity.  Christ emphasizes it in his teaching, as well as in the Our Father.  It is not an option but a requirement.  It is also something necessary for us to attain forgiveness.
