Many, Clear, and Simple
This month and next month’s feature articles address the reasons why psychotherapy (psychological counseling) is not good for biblical Christians—those who have believed the gospel, who have received the gift of salvation, and who are indwelt by the Holy Spirit.
The reasons for rejecting psychotherapy are many, they are very clear, and they are not complex according to the Scriptures. Consider just Psalm one. Believers are not to walk in the counsel of the ungodly. Furthermore, we are to study God’s Word and apply it to our lives. That is the lifestyle that will yield godly fruit, be a blessing to others, and is pleasing to Jesus, our Lord and Savior. It’s not complicated, and requires only our willingness to obey Him.
