Theory Critique - Crabb and Hawkins Rose Monk COUN 507 Liberty University Dr. Hunter November 3, 2013 Concise Summary of Theories Larry Crabb’s model for Christian counselors is based on Christian values and includes secular principles that are consistent with Scripture. Plain and simple this theory works to create a receptive mind for the truth. Ultimately, the idea behind this model is to work on the thought process, and in altering the way the mind thinks, this will motivate correct actions to reach the client goal. By identifying the problems in feelings, behaviors and thinking, this model not only works to change the way clients think, yet their belief of needing anything other than God. Understanding the basics of
4-MAT Review: Entwistle Liberty University Summary Entwistle, Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity (2010). Entwistle (2010) explains how everything such as the decisions we make (personal choices) and the decisions society makes for us shapes our image of worldview and our perception of the world as a unit. The acquisition that people tend to hold on and cling to the assumptions of others, ourselves and the world without even trying to find out the truth behind the assumption also have an effect on worldview. “The sins and assumptions of a culture affect the sins and the thinking of its resident members” (Entwistle, 2010, p.74). This clearly states that the sins of one’s society affects every member of the society even though it may affect them in different ways.
Part III: Presuppositions * The author assumes that the readers have a preconceived idea of how to properly define justice. * The author assumes that the readers will agree with him about the book’s validity on the topic of justice and the authenticity and accuracy of scripture. * The author assumes that his readers are not in need of generous justice themselves. * The author assumes that the readers have a basic understanding of the gospel of Christ.

There are lots of different interpretations of which source of morality is the greatest for use within the contemporary world. There are also two main categories these sources fall into; intellectual or instinctual. The Bible “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, in order that the man of God may be fully qualified, equipped for every good work.” For orthodox Protestants (Jehovah’s witnesses) and Evangelical Christians they affirm the Bible, first and foremost, as the inspired narrative of God's loving plan of redemption for His creation. These sects of Christianity tend to believe that the Bible is the only method that should be used when making ethical decisions, with writer Carl F. H. Henry calling ‘biblical ethics’ ‘Christian ethics.’ There is a diversity of approaches in the Bible which Christians can use to make ethical decisions; the Old Testament which includes the Decalogue, many of which have been applied in practical law today (‘thou shalt not kill’); and the New Testament involving the teachings of Jesus and St. Paul and the Golden Rule (‘treat others how you’d like to be treated’). The Bible is the witness to the central events of the Christian faith.
By knowing the definition of these integration models, one can better understand how others approach integration. In doing so, the author also refers to two books of God, the Book of God's Word (the Bible) and the Book of God's Works (His creation). Enemies do not believe integration to be possible. Spies tend to "piece together" information from both psychology and theology to come up with something that they could believe in and helps others in the process. Colonialists place "...the book of God's Word over the book of God's Works, and theology over psychology."
This research has repeatedly shown that faith-based programs combining psychology and bible-based instruction and support can help clients overcome psychological and emotional problems (e.g., Frank, & Grubbs, 2 8; Reinert & colleagues,28). Hermeneutics and psychology: A review and dialectical model. If so, is this the best service that can be provided to Christians? I think not. Thus, Anderson's theme in this regard appears to be substantiated but clearly with certain restrictions and
God wants us to see the world the same way in so far as we can; but sin distorts our vision. For Catholics, the informed conscience is the highest moral authority. Our informed conscience with all the tools of discernment functions as a reliable compass to guide us in moral living. There are many good rules to live by but the main and most common rules to follow would be the Ten Commandments, Seven fatal or “seven deadly sins” both are rules that we should not do. The Church does provide rules in which one should follow, which are the works of mercy.
We use ethics to guide us in our everyday lives. Certain situations we sometimes find ourselves in can lead to something good or bad and mortality allows us to try to make the best decision that would hopefully have the outcome that God would want us to have. We all are sinners but having morals gives us the advantage to try to make decisions that God would want us to make. (Psalm 51:5, 1 Corinthians 15:54) 5. The question of destiny- Christians
Christian Worldview Paper I Abstract It is true, knowledge and truth can in fact be sought out in different ways. The ways in which one may seek knowledge has a lot to do with their background or worldview. We all have opinions and biases based on what we have been taught or experienced A scientist will seek knowledge and base truth only on things that can be proven, by use of the scientific method. On the other hand Christians see truth as being what is God's word. There are people that feel the two can be integrated, but there are others that feel Christianity and science are not at all compatible.
Christians across the world battle on the issue that memes does or doesn’t exists. Religious memes and me metric may not be inherently good or bad superior or inferior but they do exist. That no matter what are cultures are we can evolve while staying true to ourselves and are roots. So whatever category one’s culture labels it’s all a meme of a belief in someone or something being the teacher, philosopher that we should follow his word and know that other cultures beliefs may seem to imitate each other. That some disagree that they believe in what another culture or religion believes to be what they believe to be Jesus and what he stands for also.
