Sufficient for Counseling

Authentic biblical counseling chooses no other foundation to build its philosophy and practice upon than the Scriptures: the will of God faithfully revealed to man by the Spirit from the living Word, Jesus Christ. God’s vision of discipleship requires a conviction that biblical truth is supremely authoritative and completely adequate for its task. Therefore, we must diligently search the Scriptures in order to know God better and to understand man’s needs, as God defines them, so that we may have a worldview that is truly biblical and help others experience the transformation of life that characterizes followers of Jesus Christ. First and foremost, this demands an unwavering commitment to the sufficiency of the Scriptures with every soul-related struggle a believer may face during the Spirit’s ongoing work of sanctification.
