  • Ep. 36 Why I Don't Align With Nouthetic Or Biblical Counseling

    04/07/2016 Duración: 30min

    Counseling movements are relatively new to Christianity. They were introduced to the church in 1969, and though they have served us well it's time to restore historical soul care to its former position in the church. The historical model and practice is discipleship, a model that truly enlists every person in the body of Christ and is practiced at any time and in any place.
