The Clarity, Necessity, and Sufficiency of the Bible
- Did you read the entire chapter?
- How would you counsel someone who believed the Bible could not be understood?
- Why is the sufficiency of Scripture a big deal in counseling? Answer the question by writing out a case study. (Three paragraphs is sufficient.)
- When a person elevates experience over Scripture, how would you respond to them? Use a case study narrative to answer your question, whether true or fictional.
- What is the difference between interpretation and application and what are some of the dangers of application of Scripture?
- How do you walk someone through a conscience issue the Bible does not support, e.g. “It’s wrong to eat meat sacrificed to idols.” Or more specifically to our culture, “It’s wrong for a person to drink alcohol.”
- Why does the Bible not have a chapter on marriage or family, since it’s such a big deal? Why is it a good thing not to have such a chapter(s)? How do you explain this to a counselee who wants texts and verses to help them in their marriage or family?
