Christian and Biblical Counseling and Its Proper Use

Christian and Biblical Counseling is important to spirituality and development.  Individuals need spiritual guidance and aid throughout their life from a Biblical perspective.  However, spiritual care is not mental care.  Biblical Counseling is for salvation of the soul but it is not a clinical book for mental health.  When these things are confused and interwoven, it becomes a serious problem and misuse of the Word of God.

Biblical Counseling is important but it has its purposes and limitations. Please also review AIHCP’s Christian Counseling Certification


Furthermore, Christian Counselors who are not Clinical or Licensed Counselors cannot help those suffering from pathology.  They require proper training at the clinical level.  Some clinical and licensed counselors may specialize in Christian Counseling and can treat individuals but they still should know where Scripture starts and ends when treatment is involved for pathology.
