A handy reference tool for counselors, pastors, and teachers that lists applicable Scripture on a wide range of ninety-three topics including adultery, alcohol, bitterness, church discipline, depression, fear, homosexuality, lust, mixed marriages, priorities, temptation, waiting on the Lord, and many others. All Scripture quotations are taken from the New King James Version but can be linked to other versions in the Libronix Digital Library System. This tool has been widely used for one on one to assist those with emotional and spiritual needs and in preparation for sermons and classes.
The Scriptures are ideally suited for any and every counseling situation. "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work" (2 Tim.:16-17). Paul makes it clear that there is no substitute for Scripture when counseling those with personal, family or marriage problems. In order to be "thoroughly equipped" for counseling, one must know God's Word. This resource was designed as a road map for discovering what the Bible has to say about various topics in counseling.
