Conversations through 95 Theses – Defining “Psychology” and “Secular Therapy” | Brad Hambrick
Brad Hambrick continues to remove the nails from biblical counseling’s “95 Theses.” As a number of biblical counselors have pointed out to me privately over the past week, many, if not most, biblical counselors do not support the tone or entire content of these “95 Theses.”

“A document as significant as Dr. Lambert intends for his 95 Theses to be should have more precision and clarity on key terms like “psychology” and “secular therapy.” Based upon the level of repetition that exists between many of his other Theses, space for this precision could have been created by eliminating redundancy.”

Conversations through 95 Theses –Evidences for/against Biblical Counseling
And another in the same series:

“I am not opposed to biblical counseling becoming the kind of movement that could make the arguments that Dr. Lambert tries to appeal to in his 95 Theses. Actually, I am very much for it. But at the current time, I do not believe we are in a position to make these arguments and should display greater humility and polemical integrity until we are.”

The Upward Call – Don’t be afraid of the big bad medication
“We need more women like Shona who will share these things with us. It helps to remove the stigma of this struggle. If we’re ashamed, we might not seek help, and that can’t be good for us or our families.”
