This is The Free Thinker, Powered by Urban Theologian Media. A show where Dr. Luther Smith, assistant professor and program director of the Biblical counseling department at Calvary University in Kansas City discusses current and relevant issues in the field of psychology from the Biblical worldview.
There is a study by the University of Oxford that shows that to be self-compassionate leads to decreased heart rate and a greater sense of well being. Are believers in Christ, who hold to a biblical worldview to be compassionate to ourselves? Is just the psychological and physiological benefits are the only thing we are to be observing as believers in Christ? In this episode, Dr. Luther Smith seeks to explain that although there may be some good observations made concerning good thoughts about oneself and physical benefits, there are two major things, according to the Biblical worldview that is missing from this perspective of self-compassion.
