Christians Were Scared of Counseling
A Christian Ministry Building a New Apartment
When we began our new clinic we thought naively that Pastors and Christian leaders would welcome us with open arms.

Even worse, since I had been doing Pastoral Care at a large church, I "Had left the church to selfishly make money with secular ideas". One of my Pastor friends asked me, "Gary, now that you have left the church do you still believe in God?" I said, "More than ever!"
Let's do a thought study now: Are Christians commanded to never buy or use anything created by ungodly people?
Are all Christians commanded to work only in churches?
Can a person that works in a secular job still believe in Jesus?
Do you think all Counseling is heresy?

Buy my books and see if I am a heretic!
