The Christian knows that theology can have a prominent voice within the practice of counseling. However, integrating theology and secular counseling truths demand that the counselor draw both truth from secular psychology and from the Bible in a manner where there is no contradiction of God's word. The truth from secular research can yield answers to questions about “what works” and God’s word gives us an explanation of why life happens in the way it does, as well as what life should be like! When persons seek counseling, they are often asking what they can do to change things and wondering why their life is like it is. Counseling provides skill to cope with the dilemmas in your Christian life while theological as well as empirical (proven) theory and reflection can help you make meaning of these same dilemmas.
If you are a Christian, you can have the product of both the truth of empirical studies for effectiveness of techniques as well as the truth of God's word. If technique lines up with God's word, then it is biblical since all truth comes from Him!
