Psychology and a Biblical Worldview
From April 16-18, the Association of Biblical Counselors will be hosting their annual National Conference. They introduce their conference with these words:
“How does one biblically address the complex issues related to psychology and psychiatry? Issues that have risen in prominence within our culture such as homosexuality, mental illness, psychotropic medication, and the myriad of diagnoses presented to us in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual? Are we, as believers, equipped to answer the big questions of psychology: Who are we? Why do we do the things we do? How do we change? This year’s annual conference is designed to equip all believers to address these paramount issues with wise, Gospel-oriented, biblical precision.”

Side by Side
The Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF) introduces their 2015 annual National Conference with these words:
“A vibrant church community is dependent on us being both needy and needed. So we want to grow in how we ask for help and how we give help. This conference is designed to guide us in those skills, with a focus on how these work in everyday friendships. Even in our professional culture, God is pleased to use needy people and ordinary conversations to do most of the heavy lifting in His kingdom. It’s the perfect system. If God used only experts and people of renown, some could boast in their own wisdom, but God’s way of doing things is not the same as our own. This conference is for ordinary people who need help and want to grow in giving help, and, as we grow, we hope to contribute to the ongoing transformation in our local churches.”
