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.

For some time now we were required to pass a series of psychological tests and in some cases fit into a certain profile to be hired. Furthermore, it was also required to advance in our careers, to enter public office, or to serve in the military. Many companies these days also require your attendance at seminars and training sessions steeped in psychological methods to improve your productivity and to develop your workplace behavior. No longer is the church or its teachings on behavioral issues required or even wanted. Working hand in hand with law enforcement and the courts, psychiatry has for some time now filled the void left by the church’s failure to hold their membership accountable to Christian moral behavior. Now families are broken up as courts intervene, requiring extensive psychological counseling, assigning them a permanent label for their newly prescribed mental illness, and in most cases psychiatric drugs in an attempt to cure their new behavioral problems. The real tragedy is that the local church, if they are willing, are no longer allowed to address their behavioral problems even if no law has really been broken or if charges have not been pressed against them. The church is no longer allowed to be the same church that Christ established two thousand years ago.

When will the church start being the church? When will we truly come out from among them and help our brothers and sisters to grow up in Christ? (See II Corinthians 6:17) When will we help them to be transformed in Christ? Those are some hard questions for a hard and difficult age. I believe the best we can hope for is to start with small groups of sincere believers that want desperately to follow the Christian Way no matter what the consequences may be. I can tell you the fallen world will not go quietly into the night. They will fight back. They will fight back with the same arsenal that they have been stockpiling for the past two hundred years. They will fight back with their accepted belief system that mankind’s answers to all his problems fall in the archives of their psychiatric techniques and its approved drugs. They have already won over the largest part of the Christian Church and most other world religions. What’s left to conquer is what they have classified as fringe groups either in other world religions or in groups that claim to be following the Christian Way and specifically the rejection of psychiatry and its psychotropic drugs to control the behavior of its members.

As new people in Christ, we are convinced that only Christ and the indwelling Spirit has the power to cause people to change through faith. Only Christ can take a very immoral person that has done great harm to society and completely change his heart. The Bible says, “And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God” (Ezekiel 11:19-20). What a tremendously beautiful and powerful prophecy fulfilled by the Messiah, Jesus Christ our Lord. The very cornerstone of who we are, as God’s beloved children, His true Church, is that God alone has the power to change our hearts through faith. We as believers in Christ cannot and must not allow the State, in league with the devil, to take this away from us. If we do, then we are no longer the true Church. We must come out from among them and stand firm on our belief in the infallibility of God’s Word, the sufficiency of Scripture, and the exclusiveness of Christianity, which are the hallmarks of who we are in Christ Jesus.

Make no mistake the world of fallen humanity will fight back by proclaiming that all fringe religious groups, including those who claim to be Christian, are mentally ill. They will design a simple fail or pass test to determine if we are mentally ill and in need of counseling, drugs, and in certain cases incarceration. Everyone who fails this test will also have all their weapons forcefully removed once a label has been placed upon them for being mentally ill. So, what is the content of this simple, pass or fail, test? We don’t know at this point but can only speculate. Perhaps some of the questions would be: (1) do you believe that your God can completely change your behavior without the help of psychiatric counseling and prescribed drugs, (2) do you believe that God has made you into a new creation where old things have passed away and you no longer need our help in dealing with your past and its problems; (3) do you really believe that your God can transform your life in Christ where you no longer need the help of the State and its resources of psychiatry? Of course, to answer any of the questions with a positive affirmation of God’s abilities will give you the mark of a Christian fringe group and clearly classified as having a mental illness. God help your beloved children to come out from among them and stand firm.

When we come out, we will need to make certain that we have preachers and teachers that know how to use God’s Word alone to give godly counsel to all its members. We can’t say that we believe in the sufficiency of Scripture and then not known how to give godly instructions from the Bible to solve every emotional and psychological problem known to man. Indeed, the Bible is true, when it says, “… and there is no new thing under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9). If we really believe God’s Word that says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 1:3), then we would search the Scriptures, through the direction of the indwelling Spirit, until we find the truth needed to give proper counsel. We would do this without the help of fallen humanity. We would trust God to bring forth healing to our brothers and sisters’ heart. We would learn how to encourage one another, to edify, to admonish, and to counsel one another in the power of God to bring forth change in their hearts. We would learn how to respectfully hold them accountable in the Spirit of love and affection. Let’s come out from among them and be the true Church. Amen

The Final Word to Mankind (Video)

If you could write one more article, or make one last speech, or record one last video for mankind what would you say? More importantly, what would God want to say through you for all of mankind? What would be His final Word to mankind? I believe He would simply and very powerfully say, “you can’t do it.” What? You cannot really change mankind.

The Final Word to Mankind

If you could write one more article, or make one last speech, or record one last video for mankind what would you say? More importantly, what would God want to say through you for all of mankind? What would be His final Word to mankind? I believe He would simply and very powerfully say, “you can’t do it.” What? You cannot really change mankind. All of your laws, all of your grandiose teachings from your professors of higher learning, and, all of your well-thought-out peace deals will not change mankind. All of your psychiatrist, psychotherapist, psychologist and all of your pleading, counseling, and social programs will not change mankind. Finally, all of your religious teachings will not even change mankind. Only one thing will. Only transformation in Jesus Christ through faith will ever completely change mankind from the inside out. Only transformation in Christ will change an undisciplined beast full of lies and deceitfulness into a beautiful new creation full of love, truth, and righteousness. Here’s the question, “is the world still trying to change you or are you being transformed in Christ?” Before you answer that question let’s take a closer look.

The world can’t change people, but it can go a long way in changing their opinion about life. They can convince them that it’s right and honorable to strap on some explosives and destroy their fellow man. They can convince them that it’s ok to destroy the baby in the mother’s womb. They can convince them that it’s perfectly acceptable to change their gender and desire another person of the same sex. They can even teach them to discipline their outward behavior. There is one thing they cannot truly change. They cannot change you, nor can they make you into a new person where you can observe your old life passing away right before your own eyes. Let me say it again, man and all of his institutions, both civil and religious, cannot truly change mankind. They cannot give them a new life. They cannot give them the life that they were originally created to have. Only Christ has the power to make that change through faith. The Bible says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). Jesus Christ was not kidding; it was not hyperbole. He spoke the truth of what He came to do for all of mankind if they were willing to listen and obey.

Let me say very clearly at this juncture, to be changed by Christ is much more than saying a little prayer and walking the aisle. It starts by admitting that you are a sinner. The Bible says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). That means every thought and every action comes short of the glory of God. Unless things really change you are destined for hell in the future, beyond the grave, and the wrath of God now in this life. We can and should feel sorrow for our sins before a Holy God but that’s not enough, it should move us to confession and true repentance, making a commitment before God and man to stop sinning. Now comes the power to stop! Believing that Jesus Christ will transform you into a beautiful new creation. Our belief will be proved by our actions. Dying to self, allowing Jesus Christ, through the indwelling Spirit to have full access to every area of our life. Until you have completely turned away from the world trying to change you into its own diabolical image, you cannot say that you have turned your life over to Christ completely. As Jesus Christ had the power to rise from the grave in three days, He also has the power to give you a brand-new life through faith. It is essential that you believe this truth, which is your first step to transformation in Christ.

If we truly expect to be transformed in Christ, to experience this bountiful life that He has promised, then we will follow His instructions in putting off the old life, dying to self, and putting on the new life in Christ, by keeping in step with the indwelling Spirit. Let me say it again, you cannot follow the world through its teachings, its movies, and its beliefs and claim to be following Jesus Christ through the indwelling Spirit. Unfortunately, most who claim to follow Christ in the last days will get stuck on this one point because they want the best of both worlds. They are unwilling to completely give up one life for the other. Most will continue to watch their videos and television nonstop. They will continue to get advice from the world’s counselors. They will continue to take their drugs for their emotional and psychological problems. They will continue to entertain evil thoughts and ignore the clear commands of Christ. They will continue to commit sexual immorality by living together before marriage, committing their unchecked perversions with children, and men committing shameless acts with other men. They will continue in their pride, boasting, and outrageous lies, all along claiming to be a follower of Jesus Christ. I implore you to stop following the world and let Christ show you the way to your new life in Christ. Time is running out.

The Bible says, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:1-2). This is beautiful instructions from the Bible on how to know the perfect will of God, then once followed, allowing us to be transformed from one degree of glory to another (See II Corinthians 3:18). Dear children, do you really want a new life in Christ? Then get off the fence and stop being conformed to the world. The more we submit our body to Christ as a living daily sacrifice the more the indwelling Spirit will transform our lives into the perfect image of the Son, bearing every Spiritual fruit. The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17). Dear friends, if we don’t believe that Christ will make us into a new creation, then quite simply, it will not happen. If we don’t actively follow the Way as presented so clearly in the Bible, then transformation will not happen, and we will still be stuck in the old life. To escape the world and allow Christ to change us, there is one more essential truth that we must believe.

We must believe that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness. If we truly believe that, then we will have no need for the godless teachings in the world. The Bible says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 1:3). Let’s be clear, we are talking about life and godliness, not instructions on how to paint your house or fix your computer. On the other hand, the Bible will give us instructions on patience and long-suffering as we complete our work. It will give us wisdom and guidance on how to flee anxiety and overcome depression if we run into difficulties. It will give us everything we need for life and godliness. Here’s great news, the indwelling Spirit will bring His instructions to our memory and give us guidance and application for His truth. Praise God. Dear children, although Christ came to promise us eternal life in heaven with Him, He has also given us a bountiful life right now through faith in the person of Jesus Christ who is the divine Son of God. So, before time runs out, I implore you in the Name of Jesus Christ to follow Him and become all that He wants you to be. Transformation in Christ opens up a whole new world, full of wonder and amazement beyond our wildest imagination. This is your final word to mankind. The Clock is ticking.
