What is the root meaning of the word?
Psycho – Psuche (Greek) is the only word translated “soul” in the New Testament. So the root meaning of the English word “Psycho” is soul, life or mind.
1. QERAPEUW – Therapepuo (Greek) – to serve, do service
2. to heal, cure, restore to health
3. to serve, i.e. (figuratively) to adore (God), or (especially) to relieve (of disease): — cure, heal, worship.
4. treatment, which embraces physical and psychological therapies, and usually involves a permanent change of life style. Metanoia (Greek) the process of experiencing a positive psychological re-building or “healing.”
So the root meaning of the word “therapy” is to serve God by healing. Put the two words together and “psychotherapy” means serving God by healing souls.
This meaning would come as quite a shock to the many agnostics and atheists who, as secular professionals, inappropriately call themselves “psychotherapists.”
Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
