Christian Counseling and the Law

The positive, often referred to as the secular, law is one of the most influential and decisive elements in our society. Its extent is mind boggling. It touches on every role in which we function—individually and collectively. Every facet of our complex society is involved with the law from cradle to grave, womb to tomb: education, welfare, business, labor, family, church, etc. The scope of the law has undergone almost geometric expansion.

It is not an overstatement to say that the law affects everything. It cannot leave our lives untouched. It has to do with the way we live and the way we are as a people.
