Abstract: Carl Ransom Rogers proposed three conditions required of counselors: (1) genuineness or self-congruence, (2) unconditional positive regard, and (3) empathic understanding. This study examined Christian aspects of self-congruence. Self-congruence means the state in which the "actual self" and "idealized self" are consistent. Only Jesus Christ completely met all these conditions. The keyword for exploring Jesus's self-congruence is "the least of these." There were four phases in the process through which Jesus achieved complete self-congruence: (1) Jesus realized that he himself was one of "the least of these," (2) self-awareness, (3) awareness of spirituality, and (4) spiritual conversion. When Rogers was young, he recognized that Jesus was "the son of a human being," not" the son of God." If Jesus were the son of God, He would be a faraway existence, only to be looked up to. On the other hand, if Jesus were the ethical son of a human being, Rogers might be able to reach him. Rogers decided to take the latter perspective, and kept developing as a counselor, following Jesus's way of life, which corresponded to the four phases described above.
