How do I choose the right therapist?
One typical response you may have heard is that pastors are not always the best choice for therapeutic guidance.
You know who else may not be the best choice?
Therapists and counselors—especially secular ones.
First, without an allegiance to Scripture, even Christian professionals in these fields can drop the ball.
So, when seeking help, it’s important to find a professional who is not just a Christian, but one who has not sacrificed the authority of Scripture at the alter of pop-psychology—as so many well-meaning Christian professionals have today.
This is precisely where your pastor can help. Your pastor can be a spiritual arm of accountability for everyone—including the professional of your choice.
