Part one: Goal of Christian counselling Crabb argues that the primary goal of the biblical counseling theory is to promote Christian maturity and to enhance an individual’s spiritual life and worship experience. Precisely, he maintains that Christian maturity is developed by dealing with emergent problems with the consent of the scripture (Crabb, 1997). As such, the basic reference material in developing spirituality and neutralizing therapeutic problems is the Bible. Moreover, the development of one’s inward character during the counselling session is likened to that of Jesus Christ.

Myers goes on to discuss how it is a religious duty that our faith act as our attitude in everything that we do. Miltenberger says, “Because a behavior is an action, its occurrence can be observed.” (Miltenberger, 2016).
