"Christ-based Counselors"

From Yahoo! News :

"During a recent meeting of the Southwest Region of the National Association of Certified Christ-based Counselors (NACCBC) the theme, “If it’s not Christ-based, It’s a Corrupt Basis, I Peter 1:23-25” resonated through the regional gathering at Macedonia Ministries in Lewisville, Texas."

"As DavidSon proclaimed, “I submit that Jesus understands human functioning far better than any of those who hold to the psychotherapies. And if there is an approach in the psychotherapies appropriate for believers, it is already in God’s Word.”"

Sounds like our presuppositionalist friends here... "it's either God's psychotherapy, or no psychotherapy !". Now, I do want to know a few things... can any Christian tell us where in the Gospels "Jesus" defines any term of psychotherapy, gives case studies or scientific explanations for mental problems ? Oh wait, "Jesus" believes that they're caused by DEMONS !

Now that's scientific.

Here's I Peter 1:23-25 :
"For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For,
"All men are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you."

Oh, I can see how that relates to psychotherapy, this makes perfect... HUH ?

So if a recent mother suffers from post-partum depression, the Bible-based diagnosis is: DEMONIC POSESSION!

And if someone has anxiety issues in large groups, the obvious cause of this anxiety is: DEMONIC POSESSION!

Gosh why didnt I think of this sooner! Seriously though, I cant figure out which group is wackier: the Tom Cruise crowd, or the Christian psycotherapy crowd!
