About the Book

In a world of moral relativism, Christian counselors often struggle to address 21st century issues which have barged right into the church. In unprecedented times, pastors, parishioners, and counselors must come together to face these challenges head-on. Identifying areas where the counselor and counselee can agree to disagree, as well as those areas where they cannot afford not to agree is of utmost importance for reaching answers to some of the toughest issues in counseling. Moral and cultural relativism often widen the gap between resolution and problem. Christian counselors are tasked with sorting out the entangled web of distortion concerning what is idealistic and what is realistic. The process of addressing hot topics such as abortion, artificial intelligence, racism, same-sex marriage, sexual orientation, and a growing list of other things, requires a compassionate approach without compromise of the Word of God and also, without condemnation. The equilibrium necessary to accomplish this delicate balance of delivering compassion without compromise and condemnation is achieved through proper application of the Holy Scriptures. There Is Now No Condemnation: 21st Century Christian Counseling Without Compromise is a guide for understanding the counselor/counselee relationship and a tool for exploring a comparative analysis between worldly relativism and God’s absolutism. The need for salvation, the work of justification, and the ongoing process of sanctification are stressed in this work. These fundamental pillars of the Christian faith are important not only for successful Christian living, but also for successful counseling.
