Scripture remains the bedrock of the Christian faith. It serves as a book of wisdom and guidance. Christian Counselors, preachers, ministers and priests are able to utilize it to define, defend and spread the faith. As the Church grew, the bedrock of the faith remained in Scripture, but new challenges arose that denied core Christian doctrines. The Early Church Fathers utilized Scripture to defend and preach the faith. Their writings while not inspired still stem from Scripture and provide invaluable concepts and doctrines to help others.
Christian Counselors should become acquainted with their teachings and writings and utilize them in their own ministry.
