SoulCare is not about good technique; it is about genuine relating. Do you agree or disagree? Explain your answer.

      SouCare is about relating. It’s a Spirit-led experience that leads to a greater appetite for God despite anything else that is happening or not happening. We can draw nearer to Him. The disease may or may not be cured. Soulcare is about relationship, intimacy, vision, uncovering uncorrupted desire for God above all. It’s not solutions, it’s a relationship.

      I agree. This course is helping me to see the importance of a “real” relationship. The key to SoulCare is Interacting so that the person knows I am curious and care about their interior world. More importantly, that I desire the spirit to lead me so they may draw closer to God.

      Techniques rely upon self and not the spirit

      I say amen! It is more encouraging to sit with someone who cares, but has no answers than to be fixed without care. I have experienced both. I value the gift it is when someone joins me where I am, and cares and points me to a better hope. It is far more desirable than, answers. Only God has real answers that satisfy my soul.

      I agree with this statement. Soul care is about relating because we are incapable of giving technique to a better life. We need the God whom we relate to working through us. we need to turn our chairs and curiously learn the unseen story, the battle, of the soul. Literally entering into the depths of a person soul. Genuine comes from relationship while technique is shallow and doesn’t not go deep into a person soul

      Yes. Soul care is about getting to know someone’s interior world, about being curious about where they are as God’s fallen image bearer. How have their capacities to relate, desire, perceive, choose and feel been perverted by foolishness? It’s about walking alongside with them on their journey. Then by the Holy Spirit’s power help them to see their brokenness and to see God as their greatest desire and need.
      This requires supernatural power, not good techniques.

      I totally agree. I think it is so true if we do not genuinely relate to others and be more interested in what is really going on in their lives, we tend to go down the path of trying too hard to come up with solutions from our experiences and not theirs. We are not listening to other’s heart and try too hard to rely on our own interpretation which for a lot of times are not accurate and discourage others to share as well.

      Being a good listener and some of these things are not bad but it is when we genuinely relate to someone that we can get beyond the superficial. When we have a good genuine relationship with someone, this is when they are more likely to become honest about what is going on inside of them so that the Holy spirit can then address the story of the soul without the Spirit.

      Techniques are only tools to help you in relating and reaching people. If our hearts are not in it then we become the sounding gong of 1 Corinthians 13.

      Absolutely. Every person and situation is unique, and no matter how many life experiences we have, we cannot fix or carry the burdens of someone’s life circumstances on our own. We cannot just learn some way to “function” in a conversation with someone, but we need to follow The Spirit. The times when I do this, I find that the answer about what I need to do is different with different people. Sometimes it is just to “be” with them; sometimes, to listen for long periods; sometimes, I have a word of wisdom that did not come from me, because I cannot reword or restate it afterward in the same way that it came out of me. Sometimes I even think “wow, I needed to hear that too”, and I love seeing God work through the Spirit in my life in that way. Truly, when I try to give advice, I come up with things that miss the mark; when I follow the Spirit, He guides us with his knowledge of that person, and just uses us if we are willing!

      Good technique informs us, and help is conform to better thoughts and behavior.
      Genuine relating is entering the journey reality with the other person, and seeing the story of a soul without the Spirit, and envisioning how the redemptive work of Jesus Christ can transform our whole being to the possibility of an entirely new story, through the ministry of the Spirit.
      Aside, Jesus did not leave his disciples with good techniques, He incarnated and showed us what is genuine love, and left us with the command to “love one another.” This is relational, not technique.

      Technique will lead to more foolishness, will cover up a huge infection with a small band aid. Relating and peeling back the corruption and foolishness by involving the Holy Spirit is the only way to effectively move forward in a person’s realty journey to get closer to God. Both individuals involved with Soulcare are in like paces of foolishness, or have been, it misleads and deviates them both from seeing true and open issues or sins, through prayer and seeking a vision from the Holy Spirit God moves to reconnect with the soul, he also uses one to reach that soul in surrender thus bringing them both closer too. Each is brought into a view of the Trinity that becomes clearer and sacrificial and sanctifying, allowing each to move closer to God.
