  1. Fast Paced & Interesting 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2015

    Steve Viars shares the history and metamorphous of the Faith Lafayette Biblical Counseling program and the need for every counselor and counseling program to grow and improve.

    Defining biblical counseling, he says in part… Biblical counseling recognizes the Bible as foundational and offers sound answers based on biblical truth taught in a way that helps people change. Biblical counseling believes that the Bible is sufficient and provides all we need to please and glorify God in this present age. Biblical counseling has a biblical understanding of man’s sinful condition, it is Christ centered and not problem centered, it speaks to both the imperatives and indicatives of scripture, and it is empowered by the Holy Spirit. Biblical counseling can be derived and understood by any growing believer and it does not become outdated.

    Pastor Viars refers a number of times to a pyramid and the notes may be helpful to the listener. Fast paced and interesting.
