Philosophy of Biblical Counseling
LampLight Biblical Counseling finds its identity in Psalm 119:105. We truly believe that God's Word is the "light" for the path that we call life. Our counseling approach is based upon the presupposition that the Bible is sufficient to help man address his (non-organic) problems of living. The Holy Scriptures (as found in the Old and New Testaments) offer help and hope to those who are interested in learning how to solve personal and relational problems God’s way. By applying biblical truths to life’s problems, followers of Jesus Christ can learn to live their lives in ways that are pleasing to God. By interpreting personal problems through the lens of Scripture, biblical counselors, as ambassadors of Christ, seek to ensure that Christians are “not taken captive through false teaching, philosophy and empty deception according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ” (Colossians 2:8). Biblical counselors seek to lovingly share one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:1–10) and to proclaim Christ, “admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, that we may present every man complete in Christ” (Colossians 1:28). Our goal is to help others solve problems in such a way that they discover and become useful and fruitful "in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 1:2-11). Our counseling approach is "nouthetic" and is not a form of psychotherapy.
