Counseling One Another: Discerning Between Spiritual & Medical Issues


Have you ever wondered if an issue that you, a family member, or a friend is facing is a spiritual and/or medical issue? If it is a genuine medical issue, you don’t want to treat is like a spiritual problem. Likewise, you don’t want to treat a genuine spiritual issue like it is a medical problem.
