Will Christianity be Classified as a Mental Illness? (Video)

Before we attempt to answer the question, “Will Christianity be classified as a mental illness,” it’s important to understand that not everyone who calls upon the Name of Christ is cut from the same cloth or holds to the same doctrine. As classic Christianity drifts to the left of center it looks and acts more like the world of fallen humanity every day. After watching the video on my secure website, please share with others.

Will Christianity be Classified as a Mental Illness?

Before we attempt to answer the question, “Will Christianity be classified as a mental illness,” it’s important to understand that not everyone who calls upon the Name of Christ is cut from the same cloth or holds to the same doctrine. As classic Christianity drifts to the left of center it looks and acts more like the world of fallen humanity every day. Most in this large group gladly accept the label placed upon them individually as suffering from some form of mental illness needing the counsel and medication supplied by the fallen world. In time, it has become so accepted by the local church that psychiatrists are asked to teach from their pulpits and even train their counselors in the proper methods of counseling. Most so-called biblical counseling is so integrated with the techniques of psychiatric counseling, it’s difficult to see the difference, other than an occasional quote from the Bible. This unholy wedding has already taken place between the psychiatric dogma established by the fallen world and the biblical doctrine of the local church to produce a new man for the modern age. This new man is no longer subject to the doctrine of his church but is now held accountable by the new teachings of the fallen humanity that will affect every area of his social-economic life.

Making Sense Out of Another Tragedy

The nation was shocked again with another mass shooting this time in Las Vegas, Nevada. Already blame is given to mental illness. gun control, ISIS, and the list goes on and on, but no one looks at the real problem. It’s like the whole world and most of Christianity ignores the problem completely. Yes, it is a deep-rooted problem that goes back many years, perhaps as far back as the 1950’s. Until we recognize the problem we will never be able to solve it. Everyone will admit that what a man thinks is what he will eventually do. This was a truth taught by the Bible and echoed by Jesus Christ and His Apostles. Proverbs says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…” (Proverbs 23:7). And clearly a man always thinks what he has been taught. Continue reading Making Sense Out of Another Tragedy

The Witness

The witness stands before the lord of the earth as the Beast ascends from the bottomless pit. For two thousand years the Church faithfully witnessed while millions were martyred. Now we stand on the precipice of time and eternity crying out for an authoritative witness. In a world of confusion we seek clarity. In a world that’s gone mad we seek a powerful witness. We long to hear thunder from the Throne as mankind destroys the earth. Yet can we bear this witness? The world as a whole will not but happily celebrate when the witness is killed by the one who arises from the pit. For this witness is against everything they believe, for their deepest aspirations, and unfulfilled dreams. The world as whole wants peace at any cost, among all people, blurring the lines of nationality, culture norms and religious convictions. They long for a time when the entire world advances out of its infancy and reaches an age of maturity where all religions are on the same level with none having a corner on the truth. They long for a time when their counselors alone will be the embodiment of all truth given legislative ability to enact their will upon the people. In their mind this can only happen when the witness is removed. Continue reading The Witness

Whatever Happened to Sin?

Whatever Happened to SinThe world is in shock once again to the senseless, horrific deaths of little children at yet another school shooting. Just only to imagine the broken and lifeless bodies of those little children at the Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut make it difficult to write this article. As my heart aches and my spirit cries I feel compelled once again to write about the consequences of a society who has turned its back on God. For the past 24 hours law enforcement and our nation’s leaders have been frantically looking for a motive for another tragic mass murder. What triggered it? What caused a quiet young man considered by his peers to be brilliant do the unthinkable? Computers are checked, emails are scanned, and countless people interviewed to determine what drove this man to do the unconscionable. As the investigation enters its second day it’s now being leaked that the shooter may have suffered from an obsessive disorder. I must ask again whatever happened to sin?
