Always Call Sin “Sin:”
It is no favor to the counselee to call sin “sickness” or “a genetic problem.” The kindest thing to do is tell the truth. There is hope in right labeling. Jesus came to forgive and to defeat sin. He doesn’t promise to change our genes or to heal all our sicknesses. Names are important. Names can be signs and sign posts: they point to solutions. “Sickness” points to the physician; “sin: points to Jesus Christ.
Don’t minimize the severity of a counselee’s problem. Nor should you minimize his negative evaluation of himself. It isn’t easy for a sinner to admit his sin. Some, meaning well, do poorly instead when they say things like, “O, come on, John, you haven’t been that bad.” If a woman says, “I’ve been a miserable failure as a mother,” take her seriously. Say something like this in response: “That is serious; tell me how bad a mother you have been.” Minimize neither the evaluation that the counselee makes, nor the severity of his situation. Rather, maximize the Savior: “Yes, your situation is really bad, but – thank God – Jesus Christ can solve problems even that serious.”
