Biblical Counseling Lesson 12


Four Soils Ministry's Biblical counseling certificate program is based on the premise that people do the things that they do because they believe the things they believe. The Bible says "as a man thinks, so he becomes". Therefore, if we can change the belief system of a person by replacing the lies he/she believes with the truth, we believe you can change that person's behavior. Four Soils Ministry believes that we can replace the lies a person has often believed since childhood by teaching truths found in the Bible. We call this system "Biblical Counseling" and a person who applies these principles a Biblical Counselor.

In other words, we believe that Biblical counseling "is counseling in which biblical principles are used exclusively". Four Soils Ministry's goal is to lay a foundation of Biblical understanding (knowledge of God's Word) and use other more focused Biblical counseling websites to show possible application.

Four Soils Ministry's goal is to train pastors, counselors, missionaries and lay counselors so that they are able to use God's Word to:

    • Help Christians overcome personal and interpersonal problems.


    • Help couples heal and strengthen their marriages.


    • Help parents be successful in their child rearing efforts.


    • Help convicts and offenders recognize the lies they believe and apply the truths as taught in the Bible.


    • Bring glory to God as we minister His Word.

If have been taking this course for credit (lessons in sequence) then you have now finished all twelve modules, therefore I would like for you to take a few moments and reflect upon "the fall" of Adam and Eve (Genesis 3). Meditate upon that Biblical account, then write a brief statement about the results of their sin and how those results are manifested your life and in the lives of those around you.

May God bless your desire to serve Him in the area of Biblical counseling.
