One of the issues that is discussed is how Christian counseling is viewed, and how it will continue to be viewed. Each client should be given the right to choose the aspects of Christianity in counseling, and this begins with the informed consent to incorporate prayer and scripture into the sessions.

But Christ wants to speak truth into our lives, many times in the form of the Holy Spirit’s constructive criticism. Again, we have a choice to respond positively or make it personal. The Lord knows that this criticism is for our own good, and when we realize that, our relationship with Him will deep- en.

My purpose in this essay is to explain and analyze the Divine Command Theory. Divine Command Theory states that morality is ultimately based on the commands of God. I disagree with this theory because how do we know what concepts of God are true and what other concepts are false? There are so many religions making their own claims and interpretations that they believe are true. Therefore, how do we know then what God approves or disapproves of?
In the Protestant system it is a single act of God, followed by sanctification. It is based upon the merits of Christ, conditioned by faith, and manifested by good works. Luther’s doctrine of justification by faith was the key insight that sparked the Reformation. He began to teach and preach in accordance with his new understanding of the Book of Romans.
