Christian Biblical Counseling: Advent Preparation in Religious Counseling

Christian Biblical Counseling: Advent Preparation in Religious Counseling

Religious Counselors Must Reintroduce Christ to Christmas The secularization of religious feasts is common in America. The Christmas season which spiritually begins December 25th, begins on Black Friday after Thanksgiving.

Christian Counseling Programs: Counseling Must Teach that the Body is a Temple of the Holy Spirit

Christian Counseling Programs: Counseling Must Teach that the Body is a Temple of the Holy Spirit

Counseling must emphasize the holiness of the body There has been a over-emphasis on the value of soul when one looks at the essence of human nature in Christian Counseling Programs.
