    Here is the important thing--the non-dominionist "Christian counselors" do have membership in legitimate medical and social work associations (like the National Association for Social Work or APA) and they have formal seminary training (from a non-diploma-mill institution).

    Dominionist "Christian counselors" in general are missing one or the other (if not both).  As I've noted (and will go into detail on this weekend), most neopentecostal denominations require little or any formal training at all, and (as I'll go into later in the series) dominionist groups in general have a severe problem with "diploma mills" and "accreditation mills" in their midst.  It is, in fact, possible for a dominionist "Christian counselor" to get a completely bogus "Social Work" degree, a bogus "Doctor of Divinity" degree, and set up shop without any formal seminary or social work training at all.

    About the only dominionist denominations that require any sort of formal seminary work are the steeplejacked congregations like the SBC--and generally the method of attack in those cases was to steeplejack the seminaries.
