Martin’s doctorate in educational psychology from the University of Colorado qualified him for the Clinical Psychologist license in California, for which he never applied. After reviewing the many often conflicting theories and therapies along with their often contradictory techniques, they realized the whole business of psychotherapy was a hoax and were alarmed to see it coming into the church.
Dear Co-Laborers in Christ,
We are living in difficult times as the world around ignores or opposes the only Almighty God, who has graciously revealed Himself in the Bible. One theme we continually reiterate is the importance of diligently seeking God daily, and especially during dire circumstances of life, so that believers may grow in the things of the Spirit, rather than being swallowed up by the trials, tribulations, and sufferings of life.
A daily walk with the Lord would include communicating with Him and being strengthened by Him through His Word and Holy Spirit throughout the day. One of the most important things followers of Jesus can do for one another is to encourage a daily walk in which we acknowledge God’s presence and trust Him to guide and strengthen us: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
In contrast to sinfully discussing the problems, as both secular and many biblical counselors do, we believe that talking about and encouraging the daily walk will serve to mature believers and put them into a position wherein the necessary wisdom and knowledge for what to do will come from the Lord. Those who minister to fellow believers should themselves have a very definite daily walk with the Lord. Then, as the daily walk is discussed, those who minister will know what to encourage and suggest.
The daily walk is so essential to Christian living that we begin ministering by asking a person or couple about their daily walk, so that we could put everything into that perspective at the very beginning. If those seeking help have a consistent daily walk or are willing to start one, we can discuss their concerns within that perspective, which could curtail much of the evil speaking about others, which occurs in most counseling conversations.
We continue to be grateful to all who support our efforts to encourage fellow believers enduring trials and tribulations to experience them biblically with a daily walk with Jesus, who is the “way, the truth, and the life.”
Contending for the Faith,
Martin and Deidre Bobgan
