Many other forms of counseling approaches have a tendency to be to direct and have the potential to become theological based rather than spiritually based. The difference in the two years everyone will have a different theology as it pertains to the word of God. All Christians must have the same spirituality when it comes to the word of God. When counseling the counselor must always have the Spirit of Christ to help individuals through their problems. Limitations of the Counseling Theory James Crabb form of counseling is broad but yet profound.
Detail Worldview Outline Eibylardo M. Funes Grand Canyon University CWV-101 20131221 Dr. Jeff Jibben Christian Worldview The Christian Worldview is usually many Christians view and meaning of the teaching of the bible. I often look at Worldview as majority of opinions from many Christian denominations and how they perceive the word of GOD and the teaching of the bible should be in related in today’s world. As a new Christians my views are in between and I’m just now learning GOD, so I fall in the category of Majority I believe and have Faith that they are true.

“Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee” (1 Tim 4:16, KJV). In this vein, this paper will examine the validity of Charles Spurgeon’s theological foundations for Pastoral Ministry and their relevance for today’s pastor. A comprehensive analysis of two specific theological foundations from Spurgeon will corroborate their critical relevance for the success of today’s Pastoral Ministry. Spurgeon
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper). Hammett goes on to detail how through these ordinances believers are united to Christ (263). He discusses the proper administration of these ordinances and explains how we should properly view these in our worship.

On the other hand, the Address mainly focused on the argument of unity. In the above discussion, other major principles of the document include the purpose and the method of restoring peace and unity with the Christendom. For instance, the primary objective, in this case, entails the unification of Christians as the people of God. Disunity in Christianity is a stumbling block to progress among Christian faithful. About the method of restoring peace and unity, Thomas Campbell in his document highly believed in a direct appeal to the
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.

I have successfully read Crisis counseling: A guide for Pastors and Professionals, now its time for practical application. While reading this book I thought of several different ministries within my local church assembly that could benefit from this book. Especially since my church is located in the heart of a very high risk community, I believe it is important to educate our ministry on how to deal with crises as well as to show them and guide them through the process. Showing the community that the church is still relevant and that we care about the well-being of the people is how we all can cope with and get through crises. As stated before the plan of action is simple, however, we as the body of Christ have got to become more sensitive to the needs of the people and the one of the ways we can do that is through counseling.
They want you to respect your fellow man, your wife, your family; they want you to be a rigouts man or woman. They want to teach you to pray and ask God for forgiveness and they want you to live by their ways. In many cases they have a few books about it. One example would be the Catholic bible; they have the book of Genesis, Exodus, and even Psalms.
