Online Doctor of Biblical Studies Degree in Biblical Counseling With A Focus on Sexual Addictions

The power of Biblical counseling can be summed up in seven words: "The unfolding of Your words gives light" (Psalm 119:130).  As never before in human history, our world needs light - the light of eternal truth.

 

Biblical counselors are trained to present the eternal truth of God's Word to individuals and families who are seeking to move past the false, shallow, and worthless advice of secular humanism.  Countless lives are being ruined by the wages of sin (Romans 6:23), and countless individuals are desperately seeking truth.

 

Jesus said of the Word of His Heavenly Father, "Thy Word is truth" (John 17:17).  He also said, "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).  So many in our broken culture need rest - a rest that can only be found in Christ.

 

Properly trained Biblical counselors are prepared to lead the broken to the truth, and in that truth experience life as God created us to live.
