Episode Notes:   
  • A biblical anthropology rooted in the gospel completely rewires human psychology from the way we think and to our affections. 
  • In counseling, we’re not trying to better the old man, but rather, we’re trying to cultivate the new man.  
  • Humanism’s anthropology is to try and better the old man, which cannot accomplish what it sets out to do.  
  • Gospel driven counseling is set to cultivate the new man as described by scripture.  
  • Loyalty war that rages within, the fight for worship. The flesh is set on worshiping creation and self, where the spirit is set on having us worship God.  
  • The Holy Spirit is at work in us to transform our desires, and to set them upon The LORD.  
  • The hierarchy of needs model is a passive heart approach, but a biblical model says the heart will elevate an appropriate desire to an inappropriate level rendering them even sinful.
