Counselling and Guidance: #3~Steps on How to counsel young people facing premarital problems.

5개월 전

Hello Dear Friends, Praise the Lord!

In my last blog, I talked about the addicted generation where many of our youths are engaged in fornication. Today I want to continue talking about how to counsel young people who are addicted to premarital sex.

Counselling must begin at an early period among teens when puberty begins in the female and sexual awareness begins in the male.

Most people who are dealing with people involved heavily in numerous sexual practices are actually ignorant about sex.

How to counsel young people with sex problems:

  • Have and provide a comfortable setting. The counsellor must ask himself, "Am I the kind of person others would feel comfortable talking with about something so personal and intimate as their sexual hang-ups?" The point is, don't demoralise, condemn an seek to punish them. Don't uncover the sin that God has already covered!

Psalms 32
[5]Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the lord.” And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.Interlude

Psalms 32:1-3,5
[1]Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight!
[2]Yes, what joy for those whose record the lord has cleared of guilt, whose lives are lived in complete honesty!
[3]When I refused to confess my sin, my body wasted away, and I groaned all day long.
[5]Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the lord.” And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.Interlude

Avoid such reactions as, "Oh, how could you do a thing like that!" Or, Don't you know that's wrong?" Or, "God will punish you for this." That will only cause the person to go deeper into their shell of guilt and fear. The first reaction should be one of understanding and compassion, so that the individual will open up and pour out the whole story.

Remember, the sex problem is often hidden behind other problems. In such cases the sex problem must be uncovered.

I will be right back. Thank you for reading!
