Counseling lesson 7

 

Four Soils Ministry is a Bible Based Ministry established for the purpose to equip workers in the area of preaching, teaching, discipleship and Biblical Counseling. We firmly believe that God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit uses His written Word to provide the solution to man's emotional and relational problems that were caused by Adam and Eve's sin in the garden of Eden. Read in Genesis chapter three the fear and guilt, plus the blaming, covering-up and excuses demonstrated by Adam and Eve immediately after their sin (disobedience). Any time we sin today we experience the same emotions and broken relations that were generated in the garden.

Four Soils Ministry provides the Biblical foundation for our counseling students and we rely on organizations such as Open Arms Internet Ministry to supplement our instruction with specific Biblical counseling resources.

What is Biblical Counseling?

Counseling is nothing new; it has been around for a very long time. The kind of counseling we at OAIM do is called BIBLE counseling (Basic Insights for Biblical Living Everyday). It is a type of Nouthetic Counseling.

What is Nouthetic Counseling?

Nouthetic is a term that was coined by Jay Adams that is based on the Greek word nouthesis. This word is used to define this concept of a combination of confronting, admonishing, warning, teaching, and training that is the heart of biblical or Nouthetic counseling. Since this Greek word is very rich in its meaning, no one English word is sufficient to translate it. (While we do agree with much that Dr. Adams says, we differ on some specific points that we will list below.)

The Bible is very clear in teaching that it holds the answers for us to live our lives in a godly way. "All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Nouthetic counselors are committed to the belief that God through His word and the Holy Spirit is the one we should turn to for instruction in dealing with our problems.
