the conclusions I came to regarding this topic may surprise you and many of you will most likely not agree with my hypotheses, because they are quite uncommon and do not have any scientific studies behind them, in fact, I even believe that science itself should also be a matter of doubt for those who put all their trust in GOD, but that’s the topic for another article.
If I have not already lost you with this opening statement, may I ask you to read on considering that I came to these findings after many years of research and after many years of offering therapy myself, out of the best motives, genuinely wanting to help people and even more earnestly wanting to heal them from whatever may have mentally troubled them.
I will use a “backwards” approach to prove my claim:
let’s take a look at the problems where not only psychotherapy or psychiatry, but also many New Age “healers” offer solutions for and lets then take a look at the origin of the solution science has in stall for them, shall we…?
They are problems everyone or if not every single person then at least the largest majority of humankind have to go through at some point in their lives (except if they are saved, born again AND OUR FATHER decides not to let the devil trouble them – but we shall come to the only true solution later):
depression, loneliness, grief, personal tragedy or trauma, financial or health catastrophes, relationship / marriage breakdowns, career failures, difficulties with children or parents, addictions, compulsions, delusions.
All of these are “catered for” by many sources and so called experts.
Scientific ones and non scientific ones.
For instance, if you are depressed, you can go to a psychiatrist and he will describe you medication, you can go and see a psychologist and he will book you in for 10 or 20 sessions of therapy and you can also go to a herbalist, he will give you tea or supplements to take or you can go to a guru and he will tell you which classes or “initiations” you need to book / buy or how many dvds you’ll need to change your life so that your depression will disappear …
OR you can chose the Christian way to deal with depression, which is to consider it to be an evil spirit and treat it accordingly:
do spiritual warfare against it and pray for deliverance in the name of JESUS.
You may already guess which one of the solutions I prefer and suggest, but let’s go through them one by one.
First of all, medication.
A drug is a drug is a drug, no matter if it is legal or not or herbal or not.
The people producing drugs are companies.
Companies want to make money.
They sell products in order to make profit.
If they made drugs which would cure everybody, then nobody would need to buy any drugs any longer.
So what do they do instead?
They make drugs which make people either addicted or not well or even worse than before, in all cases people will (have to) buy MORE drugs.
I think this is a no-brainer.
Likewise with anyone who makes money out of helping people.
A psychotherapist for instance.
When you go and see them for the first time, they will prescribe you 10 or 20 sessions.
And how do they know this is the amount of sessions you will need to get cured?
You are right, they don’t!
What they do know though is that this is the amount of sessions they would like to get payed for by your health insurance or by yourself.
Basically what they prescribe you is the amount of sessions THEY need you to buy!
When I was a therapist, I wasn’t one that any health insurance would pay for, I wasn’t registered with any association, because I wanted to be free of what I would do to help my patients, did not want to belong to this or that category and organisation, but wanted to do what would help my client in that specific situation the most (at least form my best of knowledge), but that meant on the other hand that my clients had to pay for the sessions themselves.
For many of them, this was part of the cure, because my sessions were not cheap and they had to really engage, work together with me and had to do their best to make the most out of it – for their own profit!
I didn’t believe I could give them the knowledge to change their entire life, I wasn’t that full of myself, I believed I could give them something, an impulse, a sort of starting – aid, to help them get back on THEIR track and then take it from there… actually, I preferred only to have one or two sessions with them and not let them depend on me in any way. And after every session, I encouraged them to let our work sink in, to do the assigned homework and then to decide IF they need another session at all, because only they can know what’s best for them, is that true or not true?
Well, many people gave this responsibility for their lives to their therapist, to their doctor, to their guru… when you do that, you mustn’t be surprised if the outcome is also in their interest, and not mainly in yours – there is only ONE PERSON who will only and solely have YOUR BEST INTEREST in mind and that person is not even a person, but GOD, JESUS CHRIST.
But even if you don’t follow me on the last conclusion, I hope you can agree that only you can take responsibility for your life and for your (mental) health.
I find that in many cases, medication or even institutionalization, those institutions or medications or treatments are doing exactly that, taking the responsibility away from the individual.
I’ve just recently seen a statistic which states that 60% of all prisoners are taking some sort of prescription drugs (additionally to the illegal drugs they will still take while they are serving their sentence) and it is a huge market for the pharmaceutical industry.
While they are in prison and many people and programs are used to help them to be re-socialized, they can still get drugs, are even prescribed more of them and they can have access to many psychopharmaceuticals (and there is not much difference between legal and illegal ones, after all, heroine is the same as morphine, which is used in ALL hospitals as a pain reliever!) and can get into different “states” of being in the world – sometimes even easier than they can outside!
So much to psychiatry and psychotherapy and institutions which are supposed to heal and restore (mental) health or help people change their lives for the better.
They are industries!
(Not only the private prisons, but also all) Hospitals are businesses nowadays.
They need to be profitable or they will be shut down or not receive any more funding, most of which come from the pharma industry by the way.
Now THAT makes sense, that this industry would sponsor the houses where the people are being treated with their drugs.
So what you need to do whenever you enter into any kind of relationship, and I repeat ANY KIND of relationship, is to ask yourself, what is the interest of the other part?
When you go and buy groceries, it’s simple, they want to satisfy your need and make a profit by selling you what you want to eat.
But it is just as plain and straight forward with ANY other business.
ALL of them want to make a profit and respond to a need.
Regardless how spiritual or altruistic or benevolent they present themselves.
Even some churches want to make profit and are not solely serving the poor and needy and are not only spending their earnings on charitable projects, church planting and evangelism.
But then, there is GOD.
HE is the ONLY ONE who doesn’t need anything in return for helping and healing you.
This alone is the best argument for choosing HIM as your helper and healer and advisor.
HE doesn’t need your money.
HE doesn’t need fame.
HE doesn’t need approval or love or recommendations.
HE IS OUR FATHER.
HE MADE US.
HE LOVES US.
HE WANTS US TO BE WELL.
No hidden agenda.
No small print.
No too good to be true.
Another very convincing point in my opinion is that the bible contains many examples where people were healed from “mental health issues” by JESUS CHRIST and how HE did it was to cast the devils out of them.
THE LORD never even distinguished much between healing and deliverance. So why should we? And why should we spend so much time and money for something HE has given us and enabled us to do as well? WE HAVE the power and the authority to do the same!
When you look in the bible, it’s all there!
But why do people go to a therapist instead of going to THEIR FATHER for healing, if we stay with the example of depression for instance, the bible says in
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
And it works.
SO does deliverance.
Depression and many other mental illnesses can be CAST OUT by a deliverance minister or even by self deliverance.
And without any side effects.
There is a lot of proof for that.
Not scientific proof, but even “proper” literature with case studies, for instance, I’ve mentioned him before, Kurt E. Koch has published quite a few books on the topic and youtube is full with evidence and if you don’t believe the videos I can only encourage you to try it if you are struggling with a mental health issue, because it can’t hurt to try something that will not cost you a penny, now can it?
That’s right, it’s completely FREE!
GOD’s help is always FREE and available for EVERYONE.
NOBODY will EVER be excluded, you don’t even need to go to a church, all you need it is a bible and if you don’t have any money, you can go to a library or download one for free from the internet.
NOT ONE PENNY do you have to spend to get healed and free from the mental health issue that is plaguing you!
And I personally believe that ALL mental health issues come from demons.
But regardless if you believe this with me or not, it can’t hurt to try something which costs nothing and will in no case and by no means cause any further damage, but can be tried free of any risk:
Everybody can pray and everybody can access this information.
So why do we not know about it or most of us don’t?
Because we are not supposed to.
Can you imagine what would happen if people knew that instead of taking pills, doing years of therapy, perhaps even spending time in a mental hospital or in the worst case, even committing suicide, which is the endresult of untreated and uncured depression, we could be cured by JESUS CHIRST instead?
All the therapists and psychiatrists would be without job, without assignment, the pharma industry would loose gazillions of money, all the mental hospitals and most likely even the prisons would be empty…
Does anyone want that?
Humans do NOT want that.
The devil doesn’t want that.
ONLY GOD does.
Think about it, dear friend.
WHAT IS the interest of the other party???
Well, I can tell you what JESUS’ interest was and IS and what HE said about this:
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
I hope and pray that this will inspire, heal and bless you.
And that THE LORD will bless you richly in all areas of your life and that HE will keep you and make HIS face shine upon you and give you PEACE.
In JESUS’ name I pray.
