What You'll Discover in this Episode:
Theories vs. The Truth
Training up the next generation of Biblical Counselors
What is the right way to stand up for the truth? What makes the doctrine of the Sufficiency of Scripture so important?
In this episode of the Biblical Counseling Podcast, Pastor Jeff Christianson explains how Paul called people out who strayed from the truth such as Hymenaeus and Philetus (2 Tim. 2:17). Just as Paul called people out we should also call people out who teach against the truths of the Bible. One of these people is Carl Jung a Spiritist and contemporary of Sigmund Freud (also false) who promoted unbiblical mystical and experiential methodology. Scientists/Psychologists are the “experts” that have become the authority in our culture. These people have so much knowledge but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth (2 Tim. 3:7) and have been propped up by people who will not listen to sound doctrine (2 Tim. 4:3). Psychology appeals to the flesh and has no lasting impact.
In this podcast, Pastor Jeff Christianson helps us see the importance of courageously standing firm on the sufficiency of scripture despite opposition. The doctrine of sufficiency of scripture is a minority position in Christendom. Sadly, many Christian universities and Churches are trying to integrate psychology and the Bible together. “And a servant of the Lord must not be quarrelsome, but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, and forbearing. He must gently reprove those who oppose him, in the hope that God may grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 2:24-25). When people disagree with the sufficiency of scripture we should do as Paul says by showing them love and kindness and by gently reproving or correcting them.
