Why Is A Christian Pastor Seeking Counsel From (Iyanla Vanzant) A Yoruba Priestess?

I'm one who believe  in biblical counseling for the Christian.  Not that I have anything against Iyanla or any other non Christian counselor.  I'm from the old school of thought that the believer should first seek out  a person with formal training and experience in applying the truths of the Bible to life.   According to scripture, Jesus Christ is emphasized as the chief counselor (Is 9:6) and answer to all issues of life who especially equips his people in caring for souls (Heb 13:17).

Now in this particular episode Saturday night of Iyanla's Fix My Life has got the social media world buzzing. Some good and some bad. This married pastor has lied, he's cheated, he's fathered a child with another woman, but still he wants his marriage. In the episode mention Pastor Patrick Dennis says he isn't ready to let, his wife of 10 years, go.

The question that's  posted above is one that I found on YouTube under the below video clip.  This comment has caused me to stop, sit down and reflect on just how far we Christians have moved toward having no personal power in our own lives at all. Any time a believer believes  that Christ can no longer fix his or her life,they are doomed.
