PHILOSOPHY AND AIM
A Clinical Spirituoprophylaxist is someone who is trained and grounded in the use of the scriptural methods and power of the Holy Spirit to cure ailments of the soul of man. This enables the soul to be free from all forms of afflictions and torments. The spirit of man will be healthy. Once the spirit and soul of man become pure and healthy, his body will function properly and be very active to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ his creator.
Spirituoprophylaxist is needed in our time of faithless generation to care for the problems of man with God’s solution. Psychotherapist and psychiatrist have not been able to the problems confronting man in God’s perspective because only God who created man can fully lead us to understanding the problems and fix the solutions. Secular humanistic psychology is a product of human depravity so we need to turn to God for accurate diagnosis and perfect restoration through His spirit of truth – Psalm139
A Psychotheologian is one trained in the understanding of the psychology of God’s word with the help and leading of the Holy Spirit to turn inward and meditate deeply on every word of God spoken and written to every situation from God’s perspective. To do effectively, there will be a tremendous dependence on the Holy Spirit in the life of man. This course will expose the students to develop deeper relationship with God for spiritual understanding and necessary skills to dealing with diverse issues problems confronting man.
The Psychotheologian is needed in our time of polluted living. it is necessary requirements for living a life, pleasing and acceptable unto the Lord. Not until we turn inward and conduct sessions of meditations over the word of God as spoken to every generation as revealed in the Holy Bible we can never reach that level of understanding that our creator desires.
Spirituoprophylaxist and Psychotheologian is a Christian soldier with the word of God as his spiritual weapon of warfare. When we are sound in the psychology of God’s message, we tend to appreciate the purpose of man in the physical reality and his destiny. These would in a great deal help man to develop the skills to helping the lost and troubled souls out of their confusion.
