It is a culture that is being formed and is constantly changing. In itself, the term has nothing to do with Christianity.

Explain the importance of Christianity in the ethical decision making of adherents. Christianity is a monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus the Son of God.

A COMPARISON PAPER: CRABB’S EFFECTIVE BIBLICAL COUNSELING Dr. Larry Crabb believes that “God has ordained the local church to be His primary instrument to tend to his people's aches and pains.” He lays out a counseling plan for the local church to use in his book, Effective Biblical Counseling: A Model for Helping Caring Christians Become Capable Counselors (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 1977). In this standard textbook for Christian counselors, he reminds us that people “will never be happy if [they are] concerned primarily with becoming happy (Crabb, page 22).” The real goal of life and thus the path of happiness is glorifying God and serving others.

How Being a Christian Equips Me to Help Others through Counseling There are various reason how being a Christian can equip me to help others through counseling.

By following the biblical values and morals that we learn and the education we gain from secular sources we are fully able to help those who come to us.

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
This was important because it was a way for local community’s to ensure that education was passed down from generation to generation.

All others will be annihilated. Hell does not exist.” Jehovah Witnesses do not belive that hell fire exist and that a loving God would punish his people by placing them in hell for enternity.

The first supporting arguments would be that President Bush never presented evidence of Saddam Hussein having any interactions with terrorism. Say he might have done so where Is the evidence to prove the case, the only way people will believe such thing is when they are looking at the evidence. He might have been stockpiling biological any other weapons of mass destruction, but he never had any interactions with terrorism. The next supporting argument is, the United Nations neglected to the invasion of Iraq. The principal itself that the United Nation, the one and only organization that protects human rights and stands against threats to rights of all people, refused the invasion of Iraq should give enough reasons to not support the placement of war.
