What the Coronavirus Has Revealed About Us & How to Cure It

A crisis is like a divine knife exposing us to our deepest needs. Maybe a month ago we thought we needed less traffic or less work to do, but this crisis has made our deeper needs more apparent. The Coronavirus has increased stressors and temptations - maybe like never in our life-time. When a generation is faced with the threat of death and suffering on such a global scale, it is like a knife that exposes fundamental needs that we often either take for granted or do not even recognize - health more than wealth, safety more than self-esteem, greater love more than greater possessions, greater wisdom more than greater knowledge, eternal hope more than earthly security.

As a result of the Coronavirus our best scientists are now working non-stop searching feverishly for a cure. Our social engineers in similar fashion seek to stabilize society and the economy. As biblical counselors, we too are diligently working to identify and address and provide solutions to the current personal and relational stressors and needs which the current crisis is revealing. We have identified four major needs, stressors, and temptations humanity is facing right now in greater measure: ANXIETY, CONFLICT, ADDICTIONS, & CHILD-MANAGEMENT.

JOIN ONE OF WEEKLY HOPE & GUIDANCE GROUPS (click here to join)

To help you during this time, the Lowcountry Biblical Counseling Center's Executive Director, Tim Bryant, with the LCBCC Counselors, will be offering on Sunday evenings from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm virtual change groups. These change groups will begin with Tim Bryant giving a 30-minute presentation on applying biblical Hope & Wisdom to address the increased challenges that Covid has brought. Following this, participants will break out into one of out five virtual change groups led by LCBCC counselors: 1) Overcoming ANXIETY; 2) Unity in CONFLICT; 3) MANAGING Children; 4) Victory over ADDICTIONS (for Men), 5) Victory over ADDICTIONS (for Women). You will receive personal encouragement and guidance in these groups.

We will also begin four video series each week through April on our YouTube channel. Each series will address one of the four current needs we have identified: ANXIETY, CONFLICT, ADDICTIONS, & CHILD-MANAGEMENT. Each series will repeat itself once it is over so that you can watch other video series if you would like. Begin with the topic that you most need help with and then move to the next video series. But be sure to visit our watch page and subscribe to our channel to schedule a reminder so you will not forget the start dates.

*Help for the Anxious & Discouraged

Fear, Anger and Depression have increased because of the potential threat of sickness - even death, and the loss of wealth and income. We need something larger than self to assure us that a greater good and gain is going to result from all the bad. An assurance of a good that could come no other way but through bad is necessary if we are going to avoid controlling anxiety, anger, depression - even suicide, in this crisis. God is the giver of unfailing promises and His Word is the communicator of such assurance - convincing us that He is faithful.

*Help for Relational Conflicts

Have you had more arguments lately? Conflicts have increased in marriages and among many roommates because we are cooped up with nowhere to escape the challenges of imperfect people living with imperfect people We need the love and humility that Christ teaches his followers.


*Help for Addiction

Addictive Behaviors are resurfacing and increasing due to a mixture of more seclusion, less structure, and greater stress. People are seeking to escape the stress, the fear, the anger, the conflict, and loss as a result of the coronavirus through pornography, sexual-deviancy, internet and social media, gaming , online shopping, movie binges, eating, and substance abuse. Addiction is bondage to the rule of a substance, activity, or state of mind, which then becomes the center of life. Our loss of control to pleasure can be regained by gaining a higher pleasure and new habits that come from having a new center or core. God promises this new heart that can see more deeply the dangers of addiction and experience more fully the pleasure coming tomorrow for those who choose what is best today. Come learn how to gain and develop this new propensity.
