Biblical Counseling Part 6
Chapter four discussed diagnosis – discovering problems in the heart. The process of heart diagnosis exposes sins in the motives, decisions, will, attitudes, desires, emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. Step one in recovering from these sins is repentance (chapter five). Repentance, however, is not the only step in overcoming sin. Unless steps are taken to defeat sin in the heart there will be a continued cycle of falling, repenting, then falling again. The purpose of this chapter is to explore ways to help a person once he has repented and is willing to change.
