@winternet:converser.euwinternetWhat's the difference between a reformed baptist and Presbyterian baptist? 14:21:32
@reformedbaptist:matrix.orgStrategyzerPresbyterian Baptist is an oxymoron. It's about the mode and purpose of baptism17:19:33
@reformedbaptist:matrix.orgStrategyzerThere are also differences in church government (presbyterian church government versus independency).17:23:06
@reformedbaptist:matrix.orgStrategyzerIs anyone here an acbc certified biblical counselor?17:40:49

@winternet:converser.euwinternetI see. Thank you for answering 🤝00:36:50
@biep:nltrix.netM BipI am a relationship counsellor, but not acbc - being Dutch, I don't even recognise that abbreviation.00:41:35
@reformedbaptist:matrix.orgStrategyzerOh whoops the ACBC is... https://biblicalcounseling.com/training/certification/00:44:32
@biep:nltrix.netM BipThanks!00:49:49

@reformedbaptist:matrix.orgStrategyzerYou're welcome!00:57:02
@winternet:converser.euwinternetHmm, I don't know what it could give you though? The Bible actually has everything we need to do Christian ministry. 01:02:25
@reformedbaptist:matrix.orgStrategyzerWinternet, are you saying that you do not know what the ACBC could give you? If you believe that the Bible has everything we need to do Christian ministry (which I do too), then you would have a great appreciation for an organization like the ACBC. Imagine an organizing which sought to develop biblical counselors that were exactly that, biblical. There you have it in the ACBC! :)01:37:50
@winternet:converser.euwinternetThank you 😜 but if the Bible is sufficient and it is 2 Timothy 3:16-17 16. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17. That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. than what's that organization can bring to the table? I'm not criticizing BTW, just trying to understand what it does. 02:06:49
@reformedbaptist:matrix.orgStrategyzerThink of it as iron sharpening. As 2 Tim. 3:16-17 states, the Bible is sufficient. But, not all Christians can sufficiently use the Bible. The ACBC seeks to bring the two together. Much like the church, the ACBC seeks to equip teach and train Christians for the purpose that we would be better disciples ourselves and can better disciple others.02:19:21
@winternet:converser.euwinternetI agree, Christians should read and study the Bible more. Myself included. But I have a question, what is exactly biblical counseling?02:29:46
@reformedbaptist:matrix.orgStrategyzerRomans 15:14. Don't over think it! It's helping people with the Bible. Christians who are serious about their faith are counseling each other often. The question is, are they giving sound biblical counsel? I wish I could say I always did! But the truth is, I'm still in the process of growing in Christ-likeness. The ACBC helps Christians who want to help people with the Bible, no more no less! I am currently counseling someone who is struggling with their salvation. I wish I could go into more detail about how it works but I have to go to bed! If you would like to know more, surf the website a bit or we can chat another time. The website is: https://biblicalcounseling.com/ I hope this has been helpful!02:53:19
@winternet:converser.euwinternetThanks a lot. Good night, sleep well! 02:57:40
