“The whole point of knowledge is to produce both meaning and purpose in our personal lives.” To what extent do you agree with this statement? How is knowledge used in psychology and religion to provide comfort to people? Firstly, to define both meaning and purpose, purpose will be the reason for which something is done or created. Meaning comes from the philosophical and spiritual question to the significance of one life, often using the questions “Why are we here?” “What is life about?” “Does life even exist?” etc. Using these definitions, I will prove how humans attempt to achieve these answers by the same means as not only are they the most used but also the most effective.

The COSE has five subdomains (microskill, counseling process, dealing with difficult clients’ behavior, cultural competency and awareness of value) with 37 items and it is recommended for the score to be used as a total score rather than factor scores separately.

The participants were asked to rate on 6 points Likert scale on how they feel they will behave as a counselor in a counseling situation for each item. The scale ranged from 1 (strongly disagree) to 6 (strongly agree).

Personal Position Spiritual discernment is a process that integrates prayer and knowledge of the Bible within decision-making, taking the process of strategic thinking beyond what is rational or political, to the level of the sense of the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Characterized by listening to God and putting situations into biblical context, spiritual discernment is a discipline viewed as a transformative process of divine-human cooperative imagination, while discovering and choosing decisions that lead to actions (Mellon & Kroth, 2013). According to Horton (2009), there are three major approaches to spiritual discernment: the bull’s eye approach, the wisdom approach, and the relationship-formation approach. Individuals who adopt or practice the bull’s eye approach believe that God has a perfect detailed plan for their lives and they are responsible for discovering that plan and following it. By making the right decisions, that are gradually revealed by

The doctors continued to have a less than ideal outlook on my life and advised that I would be lucky if I made it to twelve years old.

Myth’s appropriation is used as a guide for sacred space. Evangelicals’ personal experiences perceive and confirm this use by the social acceptability of the “spiritual” or “Spiritualizing” as nonempirical. Both evangelicals and nonevangelicals present valid arguments containing well grounded evidence. Boundaries move during the comparison of mankind’s and God’s world affecting truth. However, rationale defines both the possible and probable.
(2010) by McMinn, Staley, Webb, and Seegobin the authors decipher the differences between various Christian approaches. Biblical counseling, pastoral counseling, and Christian psychology are a few of the different methods which can be used when clients want a Christian perspective integrated into their therapy. Biblical counseling is mainly used among very conservative Christians who wish to return the role of counseling to the church (McMinn et al., 2010, p. 392). “Biblical counselors consider the bible to be superior and more authoritative than psychological science, theory, or technique” (McMinn et al., 2010, p. 392). Pastoral counseling can have two different meanings.
