Critique of Two Theories: Nouthetic Counseling Vs. Misbelief Therapy Sandra Hanford Liberty University Summary Dr. Adams (1986) opens his book, How To Help People Change, by stating that all counselors agree on “the aim of counseling is to change people” (p. xi).

Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary Evidentialist Apologetic Method Analysis A Paper Submitted to Dr. John Durden In Partial Fulfillment Of the Requirements for the Course Introduction to Apologetics APOL 500 By Roy D. Thomas L22758923 3 June 2012 Evidentialist Apologetic Method Summary 1 Peter 3:15 states; But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.

Evidential Apologetic also called Natural Theology emphasizes reason and rational truth and logic as the reasons why a person faith must exist in Christianity.
In detail we will discuss the relationship between inspiration and inerrancy. And then, before concluding this paper we will discuss how the answers to these questions provide structure to how we as Christians should live our lives. To a Christian who has accepted God as their personal Lord and Savior the Bible has authority. The same should not be said for someone who hasn’t made that confession. As a Christian we have accepted that the Bible contains the true Word of God written by apostles who received divine inspiration to guide the recorded works.
