Bad Christian Counseling Advice For An Affair

A Podcast listener asked, "My husband had an affair. The Christian Counselor told me the affair was partly my fault. He told me I needed to pursue my husband so he'd be attracted back to me. He told me to not be angry, to forgive quickly and to not bring up the affair again. Is this the right advice?"

No, it is not the right advice. It's a complete and utter disaster and, frankly, a catastrophic disaster. You have just nicely summarized the wrong approach. Many Pastors and Christian Counselors take in affair recovery.
