Christians with psychological disorders often have concomitant issues with guilt and shame.
They seem unable to forgive themselves for their ???weak faith.? Well-meaning interventions
sometimes compound their guilt and shame. This workshop shares how Christian counselors
can correctly diagnosis the spiritual/theological issues using Luther?۪s Theology of the Cross and
Law/Gospel distinctions so clients can receive the forgiveness and new identity won for them
by Jesus Christ.
