Oh to be a Pastor instead of a Shrink.

Sometimes I hate that I am a psychologist rather than a pastor. What happens when a client has achieved his or her stated goals, yet has a fundamentally flawed theology? You terminate treatment. This person's theology isn't likely to cause them any problems temporally - it is quite adaptive, but wrong. Wherein lies the problem? Fundamentally it is a looking inward to feelings of peace rather than objective law and objective gospel. I think I'll be reading and posting in the near future on the glory and fallenness of the emotional system.

Perhaps the problem lies with too much financial reliance on 3rd party payments (i.e. insurance) and the corruption of our calling as a consequence.
