Got counseling questions?

Got counseling questions?

Maybe you didn’t know who to ask or maybe you were too embarrassed. “Ask the Counselors” is a safe place to ask questions and receive biblically based answers. We are trained in biblical counseling and have many years of experience counseling couples and individuals.

Depending on the subject matter, we’ll answer your questions here on the website (with your permission and with first name only or first initial if you prefer) or by email. Click here to ask your question.

Most importantly, our answers are based on the Bible, God’s inerrant, sufficient Word.

16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Tim. 3.16-17)

2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (2 Pet. 1.2-4)

Even though David was God’s chosen king he fell far short. One of the things kings were strictly forbidden to do was to gather wives and horses, gold and silver, and the like (Deut. 17.14-20).
