Certified Christian Counselors: Champions of the Children Against Abuse

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

The Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross and Learn How to Become a Christian Counselor

We Must Have One Cross With Christ   The Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross is on September 14th.  This great feast commerates the rediscovery of the Holy cross by St. Helen, mother of Constantine, in the Fourth Century.  Stories retold tell of the miraculous nature of the cross when it was discoved.  Of the three crosses that were uncovered, only the third cross miraculously cured the sick in Jerusalem.  With such certitude, the cross was exalted and eventually found its way to Rome as one of Christendom’s most precious relics. The Cross and Us The cross of Christ became the instrument and

Program In Christian Counseling: Spiritual Flowers From Heaven

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

Christian Counseling Training Program: Do We Hoard Our Talents?

Christian Counseling Training Program: Do We Hoard Our Talents?

Christian Counseling and the Parable of the Talents Christ in Matt: 22:1-14 spoke of the parable of “Talents”.  This parable is unique for Christian Counseling sessions because it involves the utilization of one’s particular talents to the Christian community.  As a Christian counselor one can help others share their unique charisms as well as utilizing their own charism of counseling. In the parable, Christ speaks of a master who gave his three servants each a coin to hold and guard.  The first servant increased his value fivefold and the next tenfold but the last servant hoarded the coin to himself and obtained no

Sunday Worship: An Option?

Sunday Worship: An Option?

Christian Counseling: The Parable of the Great Feast and Us   Christ spoke of a great feast.  Many were invited to this feast but noone came.  In response, the host told his servants to invite others along the wayside to come and partake of the feast he had prepared.  Some were good while others were evil.  The good were properly dressed in wedding garments, while the evil arrived in rags.  These evil ones were cast away while the good partook in the feast.  What can be gained from a Christian Counseling perspective from this parable found in Matthew 22:1-14? This parable

Christian Counseling Online Program: Christ’s Human Nature: A Counseling Paradigm for All Spiritual Maladies

The Icon of Christ as Pantocrator teaches us his divine power but also his human side. The distortion of the face represents two natures in one person

Christian Counseling Should Utilize Christological Principles Christ’s human nature is a divine mystery tied to the Hypostatic Union or as stated in Scripture when “the Word became Flesh”.  This miraculous fusion of natures gives much for meditation and thought but also serves as an excellent paradigm for Christian Counseling.  Through it, Christ becomes the ultimate example for any spiritual malady men may face.  His example consists in his victory over any temptation. The Importance of the Hypostatic Union The mystery of the Hypostatic Union transcends all human reasoning.  Our reason must acquiescence to faith and our spiritual eyes must see what

Christian Counseling Certification: The Keys to Spiritual Healing

Christian Counseling Certification: Spiritual Healing Also Involves You     Spiritual healing involves not only the healing agent but also the recipient of the gift.  Christ never healed against one’s will, but required the consent of the person wishing to be healed.  In this way, three characteristics should be present in the person to be healed.  Besides the prerequisite of faith, the first step involves obedience, the second-change and the third-responsibility. Rev. Cindyann Faubel discusses how prayer and healing takes place in these three steps of obedience, change and responsibility. Now in this town of Jerusalem, by the ‘Sheep’s Gate’, was a pool. In Hebrew,

Christian Counseling Courses: The Inner Essence of Prayer

Mental Prayer involves understanding what we are saying and reflecting on it

Christian Counseling People to a Better Prayer Life   In past blogs, we discussed the external nature of prayer, its purposes and benefits.  In this blog, I would like to discuss key points that should be highlighted in one’s prayer life.  Many of these ideas stem from St. Teresa of Avila and other saints whose experience in meditative prayer far outweigh our own.  However before delving deeper into prayer itself, I think we can find the core of prayer found in the words of Christ in the “Our Father“. Our Lord taught us a few key concepts in the “Our

Obedience: A Bitter Gift

Obedience: A Bitter Gift

Christian Counseling and Obedience If union with God involves submission of our will to God’s will and making two wills become one, then how can one accomplish this feat without obedience.  Obedience is the ultimate bitter gift in which we surrender our own will to God’s will.  How can one surrender without the virtue of obedience?  How can one magically surrender to God, if throughout one’s life, they have manifested disobedience to all forms of authority?  Disobedience is a fruit of pride.  Lucifer in his pride, disobeyed God and refused to submit his will to the divine. Christian Counseling sessions should seek to
