There are many people who believe that biblical counseling has a horrible perspective on abuse. One of the big issues is that Biblical counseling isn’t the same as going to a Christian counselor for example. It’s a separate field basically that only focuses on the literal translation of the Bible. These counselors aren’t licensed either so you don’t really have a confidentiality agreement to work off of. Finally, these Biblical counselors tend to blame the victims and tell them to go through their abuse for their love of Jesus.
- There are many good biblical counselors that you can go to who have been informed in the past about abuse.
- MacArthur’s Master’s Seminary has a biblical counseling program but the head of it believes women should endure abuse in a marriage for Jesus.
- Many people on Twitter saw this and talked about how this is a major problem and how warped some people are.
