In this episode of the Ordinary Radicals podcast, Jonathan Hayashi and Brandon Boatner speaks on the topic of Counseling in the Local Church. Counseling can be confusing and even touchy at times.
Some highlights from today’s episode;
Counseling in the church perhaps has done more damage in the kingdom ministry.
- Sometimes in Christian counseling, people give advise in the name of Jesus, yet what is said is based on scripture is too often far from scripture.
A lot of people, they don’t go to a Christian Counselor first. They go to their pastor.
- As much as the Public Ministry of Word of God is important, the Private Ministry of the Word needs to be elevated as well.
Here are few questions we discussed;
What do you know about counseling? (Knowledge & Understanding)
How do you feel about counseling? (Affection & Desires)
What do you do in practice of counseling? (Practice & Actions)
What might prevent you to give biblical counseling to members?
