Conversely, Adams has “tunnel vision” when it comes to the Christian Counseling approach. As long as Scriptural revelation is the basis of the process, psychological concepts can be integrated to build a more sound and effective approach that is substantiated by biblical truths. Adams clearly points out that we are separate from the world, we are to be wise Christians in all capacities. What is Dr. Adams approach in counseling a child who has learning issues in school with behavior problems and in the foster care system living in a negative environment? Kozulin et.
Diandra Suarez November 16, 2012 Luke/Acts Critical Book Review-Reading the Bible from the Margins De la Torre presents Reading the Bible from the Margins as a book that brings perspectives to the standard way of reading the Bible. He makes the point that only one interpretation of the Bible was considered due to the dominant culture’s power (Delatorre 8). Despite this power, Delatorre hopes to show how the marginalized are spiritually empowered. Although the Euroamericans, or people in power, are not racist, they all have a privilege which will dominate above the marginalized and therefore they must be educated on the disenfranchised. By viewing Scripture from those who are oppressed, readers can learn God's will for us with a better
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.
In making sure that the secular psychology principles align with biblical thinking the biological issues seem to be forgotten. While it is optimal that every human’s make up consist of all the right parts, not every personality will come to counseling complete due to external circumstances and life’s path in general. Hawkin’s model implies that every human beings make-up contains a complete personality and the core is influenced by the Holy Spirit. This is a weakness because only a Christian’s core has the ability to be influenced by the Holy Spirit. It is more reasonable to lean towards Crabb’s model in this area because he discusses the development of maturity in the Christian walk.
Critics such as Levis believe that Jane’s understanding of the meaning of ‘sacrifice’ is a part of her education that she obtained at Lowood institution, which makes out a great deal of her religious beliefs. Levis is of meaning that Jane does not naturally aspire to ‘sacrifice’, but the word itself is a widespread term and we can explore it widely. Probably the first thematic link one can make to Jane’s sacrifice is her rejection of Rochester’s love, Is it his love that she rejects? a deed of principle rather than passion. In Chapter 27, Jane describes an inner conflict.
Growing up I was taught with Christian views to always forgive; however, after reading Simon Wiesenthal’s book I believe there are boundaries and sometimes we do not hold the power to forgive and we have to leave it up to God. Forgiveness has limitations such as sincerity, the power to forgive, and they can never forget. When there is no sincerity, power, or remembrance it is then out of our hands to forgive. “The question, for me, is not whether he should have forgiven, but whether he could have done so. Was it in his power to forgive?” (Fleischner 139) This question should be asked before we decide whether or not Karl should or should not have been forgiven.
She also gave concerns of what may get in the way of one believing in a certain religion. Infinite Life (2004) was written by Robert Thurman and “Wisdom” was taken out of this book. Wisdom talked about selfishness and how a person needs to evaluate one’s self to find themselves. He argued that you can never be nothing or a nobody and he also gave insight on a yogin exercise for a person
That is where there is much debate on the idea of contextualization and if we, as messengers should do it or not. I think the way Muller goes about describing contextualization is great, he encourages us to strip down our cultural ideals and look at the culture we are in focusing on the values of that culture; at the same time he also informs us that quite simply, there are certain things about other cultures that will never allow you to be the same as the people you are with and instead of taking that as this awful thing, we take it, address the current place we are at, and from there we share the gospel to the likes of the relationship we share with the culture we are in. Overall, I can say that in reading The Messenger I was challenged and reminded
Reflection Paper Theo 104 Liberty University April 14, 2014 I. Introduction The two topics that I would like to discuss in this reflection paper stood out to me in a profound way. First the Eternality of Christ and the second being the Fall of Man. The overwhelming amount of history that I learned in the past four weeks of this Theology class will stay with me and will affect my everyday decisions for the rest of my life. My overall understanding of my topics as well as many others truly stunned me at how uneducated I was in this area.
