Those who study psychology, psychiatry, and sociology may understand some aspects of the natural man, but when dealing the spiritual man they are empty and void of wisdom. The worlds wisdom is incapable of effectively dealing with the spiritual part of man known and understood only by God. When man has a physical problem, he should perhaps consult a professional familiar with the physical body. When he needs financial investment advice, he should visit a professional financial adviser. When a man is confronted with a spiritual problem, he should consult the word of God and seek counsel from a man of God who can provide knowledge and wisdom on spiritual matters.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly
Twice, in the name of Jesus Christ, I’ve had hands laid on me, and thus I’ve had demonizations cast away, and I walked away a different person.
Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory in the highest!
Glory not to the people who laid hands on me, Glory to Jesus Christ!
It is good to read the Bible and seek other Christian opinions, but I believe one day God will require those who seek him to be weined off the Bible and men’s counsel and demand we have a living relationship with Him..The one who wrote life into being and the Bible reflects is alive and looking through our eyes, in our hearts. God can teach a rock more in a glance than anyone could ever get from the scriptures without seeking Him..
I appreciate your testimony and the fact you have directly acknowledged Him to be the source, one day the believers in mankind will leave the books behind and speak with their Lord as the only path to grow and solve issues..He is not some distant entity we cannot have a relationship with,,the question becomes does man really want one, the truth will not be kind to the world in its state and concepts of morality..The Ten commandments are the rules for our lives, walk in them with the promise of forgiveness in Christ and the physical will change before your eyes..As His children through Christ only, we take on His nature, speak your path into being in a living conversation with The Lord..that’s what the Bible was written for, to bring us into that relationship, but was not intended to be the answer for all our questions. God reserves that right for himself and is very willing to be involved..keep the faith my friend..
Amen. May I seek HIS will for my life, and may I seek it FROM Him directly, since He is not far from any of us.
He did not say, “All of you, seek me in vain.” When we seek Him, we find Him.
Keep the faith.
“When you seek Me with all of your heart, you will find me.”
Three secular rehab centers failed to help me by the age of 25. God miraculously delivered me, and this book sets forth the story of how he did it. It is biblical, based on 30 years of sobriety, 30 years of biblical study and prayer, and years of working with addicts. God can use men, their experience and studies to assist us in growing, maturing, and developing. That’s why He gave apostles, prophets, evangelist, pastors & teachers, “for the perfecting of the saints.” I have learned much directly from the word of God, and still do. I have also learned much from those who studied, sat at God’s feet, and went before me. God still uses individuals in sharing His hope with others. This book is a book of hope for those who perhaps feel hopeless in the world of addiction. It also provides hope for family members and friends of addicts. It also contains valuable knowledge for pastors and ministry students in understanding addiction and the addicted. Paul exhorted Timothy to “study.” We can glean from the knowledge and wisdom of those God has blessed.
I agree, you have to read the Bible, otherwise you can think you intuit what God thinks or says but you could be wrong.
ok and I object that the link does not continue the article but hawks the book itself
