Guilt: A Natural Reaction to Sin

Guilt: A Natural Reaction to Sin

Christian Counseling Must Utilize The True End of Guilt Which Is Contrition The sting of guilt can drive one to many roads.  Christian Counselors want to ensure that guilt drives one to remorse in a healthy spiritual way.   Too many times,  guilt can drive one to the extremes of depression or suicide.  One merely needs to remember the sin of Judas and how guilt instead of bringing him back to Christ, misled him to despair.  Christian Counseling must always be alert adverse reactions to guilt.

God Finds Friends In Low Places and Become a Christian Mentor

God Finds Friends In Low Places and Become a Christian Mentor

The Lord Makes Christian Counselors Worthy Recently I saw a very interesting post about the type of God people chooses for his ministry.  Upon further review, I was amazed at the people on the list and their “baggage”.  Among the many on the list was Paul-a murderer, David-an adulterer, Peter-a denier, Noah- a drunk, Moses-a stutterer and a host of other castaways.  I would have also included Mary Magdelene-a prostitute and of course St. Augustine-a sinful party boy!  As Christian Counselors, what is our past? It gave me some inner hope and strength in regards to myself when I realized

Christian Counseling Program:  Tips to Find Sanctity on the Little Things

Christian Counseling Program: Christian Counseling and the Little Things Great men become great because of even greater trials.  Yet, for most of us, great trials or moments that define history rarely occur.  Tales of martyrdom rarely accompany our death.  Instead we are called to live a life of Christian excellence.  Christian Counselors can guide many people to extraordinary lives of sanctity simply through the “little things”.  If you would like to help guide others, consider our Christian Counseling Program The idea of sainthood or a virtuous Christian life was not considered during the age of persecution in the early Church.  Most saints were people who heroically died

Spiritual Renewal Before the Bread of Presence and Also Become Certified in Christian Counseling

Spiritual Renewal Before the Bread of Presence and Also Become Certified in Christian Counseling

Christian Counseling Those to Peace Via the Bread of Presence The prayer of the quiet as taught by St. Teresa encourages us to find a place of solitude and silence to meditate upon God.  In some cases, this spiritual “retreat” is a perfect time to escape the world, heal old wounds, and become strengthened.  Christian Counselors should encourage those who are suffering mentally to find this solitude before the presence of the Holy Eucharist.  In Exodus 25:30, this is called the Bread of Presence.  Later through Christ’s institution of the Eucharist, the ideal of the Bread of Presence became literally

Education in Christian Counseling: Protecting Your Child From the Dangers of the Internet

Education in Christian Counseling: Christian Parenting and the Internet So on your “Good Christian Parental Checklist”, you can successfully declare before the Lord that you send your child to Church every Sunday, taught him his prayers, send him to a good Christian school and represent yourself as a good example.  You have created a stable home with Christian values and have attempted to fortify your child with the necessary Christian morals to ward off Satan, yet something is amiss despite your Christian Parenting.  Your child still occasional spurs out a dirty word and knows things he should not know about sex.

Certified Christian Counselors: Champions of the Children Against Abuse

Certified Christian Counselors and Reporting Abuse Within the Church As cowards hide within the inner sanctuaries of the church to prey upon the innocents, we can see the plans of Satan to destroy the Church.  However, the words of Christ echo that the “gates of Hell shall not prevail against it”.  While these agents of Satan corrupt the hierarchical aspect of the Church, it is the role of the laity to help reform this branch of the Church Militant on Earth.   Certified Christian Counselors can play a special role as a mediator between clergy and laity in helping ministers, priests

Program In Christian Counseling: Spiritual Flowers From Heaven

Christian Counselors Must Understand the Interior Graces of the Soul and How to Discern Them In previous blogs within our program in Christian Counseling,  we have discussed Mystical Union as described by St. Teresa of Avila.  Mystical Union is the pinnacle of temporal achievement on this earth.  I say achievement only in the sense of what one should strive for in this temporal realm because ultimately Mystical Union is a gift and cannot be earned.  Prior to Mystical Union exists a variety of spiritual graces and gifts that are given to the soul as it progresses towards this union with
