Dear Berean Call,
I have long seen your account name on YouTube and wondered if it was another “new cult.” I am so happy to have done some research today and discovered your Mission Statement. It gave me great joy to realize I wasn’t looking at another misguided Christian group. God bless your work in leading Christians into pure and increased discernment. I will enjoy searching your website for some good teaching. GS (email)
I was deeply appreciative of [my college’s] teaching that encouraged everyone to develop their way of counseling as they saw fit. We were free to debate and argue for our own thinking in the class setting.
The Christian students soon found each other, as you can imagine. We had a good many debates among ourselves that helped us when we were presenting to the whole class. We all were training to be Christian Counselors, even though that isn’t in [their] curriculum.
How could we not counsel as Christians? We deal with sin issues on a daily basis with our clients. I have always used biblical counseling with my clients, whether they are Christians or not. I just can’t quote scripture to them very often because they see no power in it, but I certainly paraphrase it without changing the meaning. If a client claims to be a Christian then I explain the ministry of the Holy Spirit to them. They have extra help from God Himself. I also quote scripture and use prayer….
There are uncounted numbers of counselors out there that are using the Scriptures as their counseling manual. We don’t condone homosexuality, drugs and alcohol, and the whole plethora of sin that Satan is pushing. We are working with the church, not against it. GE (WA)
Thank you for your continued support. Now I can pass on your newsletters to the members of my congregation. Bless you all and may God reign supreme in all of our lives. DJ (email)
Thank you, too, for your comments about Mother Teresa. I thank the Lord for your continued boldness in taking a stand against those who offer another Jesus. I have felt that in my spirit about her for a very long time. You will probably receive a lot of flack for taking such a stand but if the Lord be for you, who can stand against you and prosper! We all can rejoice that the gates of hell shall not prevail against us (His church)!
I will continue to uphold you in prayer to keep on that straight and narrow path. All these trials shall soon be over. Praise the Lord! MT (NY)
