The effect of a cognitive behavioral intervention on Seventh-day Adventist church members to help them discern communication from God
Richard Lee Johns
The author studied the subject of receiving communication from God (hearing God's voice) from a biblical, physiological, and historical perspective. The author conducted a project on the effect of a 12-week cognitive behavioral intervention on Seventh-day Adventist Church members that helps them properly and biblically discern God's communication with them in a way that increases their intimacy with God and avoids the extremes of hearing God's voice in other voices or not hearing from God at all. A mixed methods approach was used and the results showed a greater level of attachment to God was achieved. Qualitative feedback suggested participants believed they were better able to discern communication from God after completing the intervention.
