A unique manual on True Biblical Counselling for Ministers and Laymen
The authors make the controversial claim that all “mental illnesses are basically due to self-centredness and self-pity.
Dr. Robert Law worked in psychiatric hospitals and when he became an Anglican priest he realised that the root cause of the problems of the numerous people he counselled was self pity. When he pointed this out to them, almost all agreed and then rapidly improved.
He drew up a chart showing how all the problems stem from self-centredness that could develop into self-pity. This generates deep guilt which is covered up by adopting various behaviours such as schizophrenia and depression.
The authors examine these two major classifications and show they are wrongly diagnosed as “illnesses” which allow patients to reside in psychiatric wards sheltered from the normal stresses of living.
A weight of evidence is presented to show that schizophrenia can be cured simply by training patients to take increasing responsibility for their actions without drugs. In one case a complete ward of schizophrenics was released into the community, fully restored to normal social life with very few relapsing. Prisoners have similarly been returned to society by this method. All such successful results have been completely ignored and ridiculed in this country.
A method of True Biblical Counselling is set out and practice cases given. Psychiatry, Freud, psychoanalysis and Christian use of secular theories are criticised.
The authors contend that the church should return to counselling its members using True Biblical Counselling and not commit them to secular treatments.
