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. Merely because the soul survives the temporal reality and the body dies, people have come to the conclusion that the soul is superior. This is even the case among Christians who are far from Platonic in judgment on the body. Christians have always revered the body as more than a shell but a temple of the Holy Spirit. While this respect has existed it seems in popular thought that

Christian Counseling and Labor Ethics

Christian Counseling and Labor Ethics

Christian Counseling and Labor Ethics With the recent outcry of union rights versus the state, one may come to many questions regarding Christian ideals and how to counsel confused individuals upon what is right and wrong.  One prominent document that championed the right of the worker but also guided many away from the idealology of socialism was Rerum Novarum.  Pope Leo the XIII wrote this encyclical in a time of public outrage as workers tried to organize against oppressive industrial barrens who exploited the poor.  Yet during this dark era of labor history, the Pope also warned Christians of the dangers

Christian Counseling Certification Program: Counseling for True Happiness: A Christian View

Christian Counseling Certification Program: False Idols of Christian Happiness to Avoid when Christian Counseling  Like an illusion in the desert, false notions of happiness pose as an oasis, but in reality are handfuls of dry coarse sand. It is important then to identify a few notions of false happiness and classify them in your  Christian Spiritual counseling sessions. To many times, people are directed towards these ends and never find genuine happiness.   The first notion is materialism. Materialism values happiness in finite objects that appeal to the senses.

Positive and Direct Suicide: Picture from the Yorck Project

  Counseling the Sin of Despair  How should religious counseling view suicide?  Since the hanging of Judas, suicide has been equated to the ‘sin of Judas’ and the unforgivable sin. This stain for centuries prohibited those   victim to self death from the rites of Christian burial. This hard stance was the main view within Christian circles but this view has seemed to decline over time with a stronger emphasis on pastoral care and understanding of the so called “damned”. Escaping from centuries of social stigma and religious condemnation, a new view has emerged due to a better understanding in the

Christian Counseling Those in the Occult

While the Occult may not be Witches on broomsticks, it is still real and Christian Counselors need to indentify the signs of its presence

 Counseling those in the Occult A Christian counselor is given a unique opportunity to help those stricken by the demonic. With prudence and discernment from the Holy Spirit, a Christian Spiritual counselor can help identify demonic issues with clients. Armed with Christ, prayer and fasting, they can also help rid a client of obsession cases. Possession cases should be dealt with more carefully, especially with the dangerous nature of such cases. Help from ministers, priests, or the Church may be needed. During counseling sessions, a person may bring up such situations of the demonic. Whether it is an obsession or a
