For nearly 2,000 years - prior to the rise of modern psychiatry and psychotherapy, the church has ministered to believers experiencing mental, emotional, and behavioral problems by using the teachings of the Scriptures.
Christianity’s embrace of psychology, raises important questions: Was there an insufficiency on the part of God’s Word and His Holy Spirit during those 2,000 years that made it necessary for the church to turn to modern psychotherapy in order to address a Christian’s problems of living?
Answers to that question is the focus of this program, considering the influence of psychological counseling on the church. In the history of contemporary Christendom, no secular enterprise has had such a influence on Christianity as psychological counseling. The critical question raised by this is: Have they been helpful or harmful to the body of Christ?
