Is therapy really what you need?

I’ve grown to appreciate Albert Moehler, President of Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY.  He’s a sharp guy, and very helpful in thinking through many, many issues.

In one of his recent blog posts… he recounted one of his recent “Twitter” posts… it was in response to Congressman Weiner’s statement that he would be seeking “therapy” to help with his recent moral failure:

“Dear Congressman Weiner: There is no effective ‘treatment’ for sin. Only atonement, found only in Jesus Christ.”

As far as I know, Rep. Weiner is not among my “followers” on Twitter. I did not assume that he was reading my posting. My message was mostly directed at my fellow Christians as a reminder of this very concern — that the American impulse is to seek treatment when our real need is for redemption.

His point is very well taken.  Even many Christian authors nowadays seem to be convinced that therapy is king, when really, its Jesus.
