Curriculum

The Bible is sufficient.

Below is an introduction to the main curriculum offered here at House Regeneration – Biblical Therapy, written by Dr Ado Krige.

 

It has been many years that we at House Regeneration have been researching, studying and applying certain programs in an attempt to help people through their life controlling destructive habits. The quest for truth started personally for me in 1987 when I opened the first inner-city anti-drug disco for teenagers which we called Club Regeneration. The name was strange at the time and it came through much prayer. It meant to convey the message that, God was relating to this generation through a desire to make them new. Later on I discovered that this word was used in some places in the Bible and it often also appeared in theological books that taught the process one goes through from salvation to glorification. Regeneration is the supernatural rebirth of a person when they pronounce faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for their sins. When you are reborn you are regenerated.

Belief Therapy as a major.

Belief Therapy is the registered brainchild of Dr Paul Carlin who developed and tested the program through prisons in certain States of the USA. The premise of Belief Therapy is that people do what they do because they believe what they belief. In other words their behavior is basically determined by their belief systems. In practice this means that when people believe lies to be the truth, their lives will be dysfunctional. In Belief Therapy the therapists confronts the lies his client believes with the truth in God’s Word. He/she is then challenged to change their mind and their belief system to bring it in line with God’s will. Issues such as doubt, fear, perceived rejection, guilt, anxiety, stress and various forms depression are dealt with and the healing process is started. Once new Biblically based thinking patterns are established the person is on the way to a radically new lifestyle. This also correlates with the teaching of many other Bible based Counseling luminaries such as Dr. Jay Adams, Dr. Wayne Mack, John C Broger and Adam Pulaski to name a few. It is out of this wide but in-depth pool of resources that we have put together this basic Bible Therapy handbook.

“The life we Christians obtain in regeneration is the same which Adam could have had but never did: God’s Life. Regeneration not only retrieves out of chaotic darkness the order of man’s spirit and soul; it additionally affords man the supernatural life of God. Man’s darkened and fallen spirit is made alive through being strengthened by the Holy Spirit into accepting God’s life. This is new birth. The basis upon which the Holy Spirit can regenerate man is the cross (John 3.14-15). The eternal life declared in John 3.16 is the life of God which the Holy Spirit plants in man’s spirit.” – Watchman Nee; The spiritual man

Pro 11:14 Where no wise guidance is, the people fall, but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.
