Spiritual Sloth and How to Become a Certified Christian Counselor

Spiritual Sloth and How to Become a Certified Christian Counselor Spiritual sloth is a deadly thing.  As one of the seven capital sins it can lead the soul to  many vices.  According to Pope Francis, spiritual sloth is also a threat to apostolic zeal.  It can strip the soul of the zeal and energy to not only care for itself but also one’s brother or sister in need. Like any vice, we must be alert and aware.  Sloth can quickly make work on an industrious soul’s pray life and divert the soul’s attention to other worldly things or play on

Possessed by Our Stuff

Possessed by Our Stuff

  Americans are known for our materialistic ways. Our wastefulness. Our self-indulgence. Do you contribute to the mess? American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight: With secular humanism everywhere, how many times do we unknowingly put objects before God?  Christian mentors must guide their spiritual children from this form of possession.  People all over the world, sometimes unknowingly put their possessions above all.  This form of idolatry is contrary to the first commandment which tells us to put God first above everything. People worship their possessions in how they behave.  This form of materialism is very dangerous to the health of

Corporate America and Its Battle for the American Soul on Thanksgiving and How to Become a Certified Christian Counselor

 Materialism over Christianity: Where Have Our Values Gone?   Christian values are becoming more and more eroded in this country.  One sign of it is the lack of thanks we show on Thanksgiving by going and fighting each other for mere objects on Black Friday.  If that was not bad enough, the greed of corporate America and the upper 3 percent now push these sales during the sanctity of Thanksgiving!  This emergence of a ‘Grey Thursday’ should be very alarming and a line we should all draw where we tell the barrons of this country that enough is enough.  While

Christian Counseling: “Lord, Help Me Up Again!”

Christian Counseling: “Lord, Help Me Up Again!”

Christian Counseling: What Can Falling Teach Us? When we fall, the least thing we need to hear is “shame on you” or “you hypocrite” or “you sinner” or some long sermon on what is right.  Most people who continually fall, while in need of spiritual betterment, nevertheless are in the habit of “getting back up”.  In these cases, Christian Counselors need to be more pastoral in their counseling than dogmatic.  Those in the habit of getting back up after moral relapse usually already know the nature of their vice and want to be better.  What they need is love, compassion and

How A Certified Christian Counselor Can Help People Find Peace

How A Certified Christian Counselor Can Help People Find Peace

The Peace of God The evil one utilizes confusion, chaos, anxiety, and uneasiness to torment the soul.  The negative energy of a situation, occasion or person can cause massive distress to the soul.  The soul as it attempts to flee is bombarded with these feelings to prevent spiritual growth and reflection.  These distractions from spiritual union with God lead the soul into a valley of tears where it focuses on meaningless things.  The soothing words of Christ are a distant echo as the soul struggles with needless things.  The focus of the soul is lost and in these cases counseling

Christian Counseling and the “Challenge” of Atheism

Christian Counseling against Atheism Christian Counseling with Atheists or those who reject the existence of God is a difficult task because one does not have a common ground to build upon.  Both philosophies stem from very different ideals.  Where the Theist finds existence to be a product of God, the Atheist finds it to be a happen chance of nature, while where the Theist finds objective morality in God, the Atheist finds subjective morality in himself. In dealing with an Atheist, Christian Counselors must first identify an Atheist’s mindset.  First and foremost, Atheism is a materialistic and humanistic philosophy that

Truth, Happiness and Morality in Christian Counseling

Truth, Happiness and Morality in Christian Counseling

In Christian Counseling  it is important to point your spiritual children to truth–not necessarily happiness. When I say happiness, I mean subjective happiness. On numerous occasions, happiness poses as an illusion. While the initial feeling appears good, the ultimate ending is destructive. Subjective relativism proposes a variety of truths and what constitutes happiness varies with each person. While at the lowest level, happiness can correspond with individual like and dislike, happiness in its truest sense is an objective reality. It is objective in that it satisfies man’s every desire and end. What corresponds with this and leads to this? Truth
