Christian Counseling

Do not read this as an attack against Christian counselors, battling to save people. Utmost respect for those who take on this role. Take this as an attack against every single Christian in the world trying to solve every other single Christian’s problems.

Christians are fake because we’re deathly afraid of revealing our faults. We’re not so much afraid of the faults, we know everyone else has them too, we’re more afraid of having to listen to the stupid lectures that follow.

The Bible doesn’t say, “confess your faults one to another and gladly receive pandering lectures.”

Job had obvious problems. His three buds came to set him straight. They each had one point: “Job, your life stinks because you are a sinner.”

Eliphaz—speaks from Experience, “I have seen” that bad guys get smashed.
Bildad–speaks from his Boys—”Everyone knows” that bad guys get smashed
Zophar—speaks from human merit, he knows all men have fallen Zophar short of the glory of God, that’s why you’re getting smashed.

God shows up and says, “Hey, all’a’ya, shut up!” I love my God, I really do.

This reminds me of one of my favorite verses, “For God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few” Ecclesiastes 5:2. And with that, I’ll take my own advice.
