Christ Centred Therapy 1
Certain principles make Christ Centred Therapy or counselling unique. Christ Centred Therapy accepts the Word of God (Bible) as the final standard of authority. It is the Holy Spirit that integrated the Word of God into the thoughts, emotions, words, and behaviour of a Christian. Christians accept the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Word of God gives insights into human behaviour and puts everything into proper perspective. It tells who we are, where we came from, and our nature and purpose. By God’s Word we come to discover ourselves, God’s opinion about us, our situation, and others.
Guidance from the Word of God (AMPC)
2 Timothy 3:16 – 17 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action), So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
Proverbs 15:22. Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed.
Psalm 33:15 He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works.
