“Knowing that you were not redeemed (lytroo) with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.”
I Peter 1:18&19  (NASB)


What is Biblical Counseling?

As a Biblical counselor I believe that God’s word holds the answers for the difficulties of life in a fallen world.  “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the faith and correcting error, for re-setting the direction of a man’s life and training him in good living.  The scriptures are the comprehensive equipment of the man of God and fit him fully for all branches of his work.” II Timothy 3:16-17 – PHILLIPS

Sometimes the difficulties are caused by our own heart.  We learn from Jeremiah 17:9 that “the heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; Who can understand it?”  Thankfully, again, God’s word speaks to that problem.  “For the Word that God speaks is alive and active; it cuts more keenly than any two-edged sword:  it strikes through to the place where soul and spirit meet, to the innermost intimacies of a man’s being:  it exposes the very thoughts and motives of a man’s heart.” Hebrews 4:12 – PHILLIPS
