What's the difference between traditional therapy and biblical counseling? Excellent question! The truth is, both have their place. Psychologists have studied the physical brain and the psyche. Much has been discovered to illuminate how and why we think and feel the way we do. Physiologically speaking, there are certain brain issues and injuries that require medical attention and treatment. For such treatment, one would absolutely require the assistance of a trained medical professional.
Not all human concerns, however, should be medicalized. "I praise you because I am... wonderfully made." (Psalms 139:14). Therein lies the difference. Who knows more about the "whole heart, soul, mind and strength?" (Luke 10:27) The creation? OR The Creator? Biblical counseling benefits all who seek to understand themselves and their circumstances through the eyes of our Creator. The foundation rests on the message of the gospel found in the written Word of God. Comfort and counsel begins and ends in the person of Jesus Christ. The Bible is not designed to be used as an encyclopedia, indexed and thumbed through for topical applications to various areas of life. This generally results in more rules, rituals, and religions.
The Bible is God's story! It's been called a collection of "66 love letters." It's about a Father, who's lost his kids, and has sacrificed everything to get them back! Biblical counseling seeks to restore and maintain wholeness of the spiritual heart, soul, mind, and strength. Who doesn't need that?
