Is biblical counseling exclusively about passing along theological information from one person to another?  As practitioners of God’s Word are we to only occupy ourselves with doctrinal understanding or scriptural application as it regards the sin and sufferings of others?  While theology and doctrinal acuity are essential components of biblical counseling, wisdom guides us to understand that,
