Counseling, medication and the Image of God

There’s an excellent article over at TheGospelCoalition about the place for medication for psychological needs. The author points to balance in saying that, “we should not approach human problems with the false dichotomy: Is this problem spiritual or physical? Rather, we should consider how the physical is affecting the spiritual, and vice versa. Thinking in this vein prevents the counselor from concluding that a problem is physical while ignoring spiritual influences, and vice versa.”

I’ve written often on this theme. See the page link above titled “To counselors”
