Godly Counselors

Godly Counselors - seeking Christian advice in line with Colossians 2:8
"The disciplined Christian will be very careful what sort of counsel he seeks from others. Counsel that contradicts the written Word is ungodly counsel. " ~ Elisabeth Elliot 

There are many Christian "authorities" writing articles and doing personal counseling. Unfortunately, some lack Bible knowledge, maturity and experience, and others mix Biblical truth with error and opinion. 

A recent Barna study showed that 83% of practicing Christians say the Bible is the source of truth, but 67% of these same people believe enjoyment is our number one life goal. And 40% believe any type of sexual behavior between consenting adults is acceptable. Barna calls this a "morality of self-fulfillment." 

It seems that many Christians have ceased to resist culture and have begun absorbing it.

And that is why it's critical that we only seek counsel from those who genuinely know God's Word and seek to live it.

  1. Amen, amen, and AMEN! As a Bible teacher I am adamant about reading the Word, knowing the Word, and using the Word. I'll be including a link to this in my Friday Faves this week.

    Blessings to you and yours!
