Description: Many Christians today are caught up in counseling, which deals with the thinking and emotions (at least) in the human being. This will take in the area of psychology. Let us look at what these two areas are, so that we can better understand what this course is about. Psychology is, according to the
Webster Dictionary, "The science of the human mind in any of its aspects, operations, powers, or functions." A second meaning is, "The systematic investigation of mental phenomena, especially those 25 associated with consciousness, behavior, and the problems of adjustment to the environment "It is also associated with" The aggregate of the emotions, traits, and behavior patterns regarded as characteristic of an individual or type," according to Webster. Counseling is, by the same dictionary, "To advise; give advice to" A second meaning says, "To advice in favor of; recommend." The third meaning is "To take
counsel; deliberate" A synonym is given of "admonition" We can see reference to the word "admonition" and its root "admonish" in the scriptures (Ac.27:9; Ro.15:14; Co.3:16; 2Th.3:15; 1Co.10:11; Ep.6:4).
