Premarital Sex?

Premarital Sex?

Christians talk a lot about premarital sex. And I think that’s a mistake, for one, because the grammar is skewed. (Read more) Source: www.crosswalk.com Good article on the issue with the term premarital sex and fornication–especially with how the other word implies a wrong time, but not in essence an evil action within itself. This is a common sin, among Christians–some who struggle with it and others who find no wrong in it, but this article correctly points out the broken covenant it represents.

Christian Counseling Program: The Body Will Be Rewarded Too

Christian Counseling Program: The Body Will Be Rewarded Too

Christian Counseling Program: The Glory of the Body Should not be Under-emphasized In Christian circles, theology obviously stresses the importance of the soul and its everlasting attributes that are beyond mere matter.  Sin, vice and temptation that attacks our senses should be avoided at all costs.  This world or this flesh is not worth the cost of everlasting paradise.   The story of Faustus reinforces this ideal that worldly gains are not worth the sacrifice of one’s soul. This has created a distortion on the value of the “Body” and its importance.  Does not Scripture refer to it as a

Certified in Christian Counseling: A New Year’s Resolution in Christ

Certified in Christian Counseling: A New Year’s Resolution in Christ

A New Year’s Resolution in Christ The secular world focuses on material growth and gain.  This is why the many resolutions we see proclaimed every year circle around physical appearance, diets, exercise, or relationships.   Rarely, does the secular person look to examine one’s conscience and seek to uproot a vice that is detrimental to the soul. The Pope recently challenged everyone to cease being a slave to the desires of the world and seek true freedom via Christ.  This involves rejecting vice, an illusionary good, and accepting virtue which alone frees us. Examining one’s conscience is true freedom because it

Christian Counseling Training: The Virtue of Purity and the Teenage Years

Christian Counseling Training: The Virtue of Purity and the Teenage Years “Blessed are the Pure of Heart for they shall see God” proclaims Christ.   This statement speaks volumes about the importance of the virtue of purity and its role in our spiritual salvation.   It is not a footnote or minor point for Christians to disregard as insignificant to our spiritual salvation but an essential part of our spiritual life.   Society would like to diminish the importance of this virtue as outdated to the times or unnecessary as long as one is kind to others, but the necessity of this virtue

The Church, the Eucharist and  the Broken

Christian Counseling Certification Program: The Church, Eucharist and the Broken Just this week, the Synod of Bishops met in Rome to discuss pastoral care of the family, including pastoral care of broken families due to divorce.  It also examined hot issues regarding the homosexual unions and adoption.  Some of these issues were Catholic only issues that did not relate to Orthodox or Protestant Christian communities, but the theme of thought I think reflects upon all of Christianity.  It represents what view we will have as a people of God in regards to modern problems and modern ideas. Hate the Sin,

Christian Unity and Communion: Christian Counseling Training Program

Christian Unity and Communion: Christian Counseling Training Program

Christian Unity and Communion: Christian Counseling Training Program Christian Unity and Communion is a difficult subject to breach because of multiple theological divisions and the multiple social reactions to unity.  Some groups wish and desire that one Church emerge and others seem to relish the disunity via their hate filled speech against other denominations. Is it possible?  Does it matter? First the later question.  Christ calls for all to be one.  St Paul further reprimanded Christians for those who decided to follow him or other apostles, but reminded them that Christians are called to follow Christ!   Division is unnatural to
