If you have struggled personally against the powerful draw of pornography, or if you have ever tried to help someone fighting this battle, you know how hard it is to break free. But real freedom isn’t found by trying harder to change. Nor is it found in a particular method or program. Only Jesus Christ has the power to free people from the enslaving power of pornography. In Finally Free, Dr. Heath Lambert, a leader in the biblical counseling movement, lays out eight gospel-centered strategies for overcoming the deceitful lure of pornography. Each chapter clearly demonstrates how the gospel applies to this particular battle and how Jesus can move readers from a life of struggle to a life of purity. If you or someone you care about is fighting this battle, there is good news: No matter how intense or long-standing the struggle, Jesus Christ can, will, and does set people free from the power of pornography.

When’s the last time your church spoke openly about sexuality? Messages about sex are everywhere. Books, magazines, films, television, and billboards bombard us daily with the culture’s standards and beliefs about sexuality. And while the world tells us how we should live in regards to our relationships and sexual identity, the church has too often been silent. But sexuality is not an issue that can be ignored. Pure Love deals openly, honestly, and biblically with these core issues of sexuality facing young people today: • dating • singleness • modesty • emotional purity • pornography • masturbation • homosexuality Confident in the power of the gospel, Timon and Sarah draw on their own experiences and the truth of the Scriptures to show you how you can be freed from the slavery of sexual temptation and walk in a manner worthy of your calling as a Christian.

A Theology of Biblical Counseling

Author: Heath Lambert
Publisher: Zondervan
ISBN: 9780310518174
Release Date: 2016-04-05
Genre: Religion

Since the beginning of the biblical counseling movement in 1970, biblical counselors have argued that counseling is a ministry of the Word, just like preaching or missions. As a ministry, counseling must be defined according to sound biblical theology rather than secular principles of psychology. For over four decades, biblical theology has been at the core of the biblical counseling movement. Leaders in biblical counseling have emphasized a commitment to teaching doctrine in their counseling courses out of the conviction that good theology leads to good counseling…and bad theology leads to bad counseling. A Theology of Biblical Counseling is a landmark new book that covers the history of the biblical counseling movement, the core convictions that underlie sound counseling, and practical wisdom for counseling today. Dr. Heath Lambert shows how biblical counseling is rooted in the Scriptures while illustrating the real challenges counselors face today through true stories from the counseling room. A substantive textbook written in accessible language, it is an ideal resource for use in training biblical counselors at colleges, seminaries, and training institutes. In each chapter, doctrine comes to life in real ministry to real people, dramatically demonstrating how theology intersects with the lives of actual counselees.

As we experience love, joy, and intimacy with God and others, sexual shame and sin lose their power. Integrating theology, psychology, and spiritual formation, participants engage the process of transformation by practicing vulnerabilityembracing their identity in Christlearning healthy intimacy Incorporating peer-to-peer leadership, this field-tested small group curriculum is suitable for use in both men’s or women’s groups. The process is neither linear nor easy, but change is possible because Christ is able. The only question is, Do you want to be healed?
