Testimonials

Andy Cherry

Over the past two decades, the church has been inundated and has even embraced the tenants of secular psychology disguised in spiritual terminology.  Surprisingly, many pastors have turned to other sources to help hurting people besides the Bible, as if the sacred scriptures do not contain what is needed to meet people's deepest needs. Dr. Kerry L. Skinner has adeptly seen these disguises and is on a quest to return counseling for Christians back to its guide for the problems we encounter - the Word of God. With the Bible as his sword, Dr. Skinner cuts through the pseudo-spiritual Christian counseling maze and reveals that the heart of our problems is a problem of the heart.  Every pastor as well as every lay person who desires to counsel fellow believers should always do so from the precious truths taught in scripture.  Dr. Skinner, through his books, seminars and now his 'Think LifeChange Institute for Biblical Counseling', will equip you and challenge you to return to the sufficiency of scripture for the answers to life's difficulties.

Distinction of Biblical Counseling

Some people believe that if you are a Christian and think, you have Christian thinking! In the same way, some believe if you are a Christian and you counsel, you are providing biblical counseling. But that is not necessarily so. To have biblical counseling requires a standard to be used. The standard is not determined by the person doing the counseling but rather is the use of God’s Word—The Bible that determines if one is practicing biblical counseling.
