Tag Archives: biblical counseling

Biblical counseling, tribal loyalties and grooming. Windup of the Chris Moles series.

Biblical counselors who are carrying the DV banner are starting to say some good stuff about domestic abuse and how it affects victims — things that weren’t being said when ACFJ began in 2012.
