why do you think God gave us doctors and medicines?
Here we go with the “if doctors can’t cure it, it must be those DEEEEEMONS!” and we used to burn witches too!
Lets not go into the “its a sin...no its a disease...no its a sin” spin.
( oh, but it will go on here, sadly)
I do believe in doctors and medicine. I also believe in a few cases there can be legitimate mental illness where perhaps there is a physical causation. With that said, I also believe that most mental illness is really a spiritual illness that can be dealt with effectively by men of God who are familiar with the word of God. Most of psychology and psychiatry is mere philosophy and theory for the most part. The problem generally stems from guilt, unforgiveness, anger, jealousy, hatred, despair, and hopelessness; base on a simple rejection of God and a refusal to believe Him. Much healing can be afforded by simply taking God at His word and applying it to our lives. I speak as a minister who suffered from 10 years of addiction, who was at one time prepared to take his own life after 3 rehabilitation centers failed. I looked to Christ, discovered who I was in Him, and life became much more tolerable. That was 32 years ago, and life has progressively become more abundant with time. The One True God does and can heal the afflicted when we truly believe and apply the truth to our inward parts.
