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

Are You Following a Blind Guide? (Video)

For the first time in world history, there is a multitude of blind guides in every segment of secular society and religious life promising to guide you into an enlightened truth. With all these guides in our world today we are forced to ask the question, “Which one has eyesight to see the whole truth?” After watching the video my secure website, please share with others.

Are You Following a Blind Guide?

For the first time in world history, there is a multitude of blind guides in every segment of secular society and religious life promising to guide you into an enlightened truth. With all these guides in our world today we are forced to ask the question, “Which one has eyesight to see the whole truth?” To be partially blind to the truth, or mixing truth with a lie, still makes you a blind guide leading your followers into the pit of inevitable consequences of following a lie. A true word from Jesus Christ is not to let these blind guides overcome you or cause you anxiety (See Matthew 15:14). With God’s help, we can confront all these lies from every source in both society and religious life as they are brought before us through listening or reading. This is possible my dear friends, if we truly hide God’s Word in our hearts and learn how to listen to the indwelling Spirit. When we do this, we will be able to expose and confront every lie. We will also be able to free those who have been taken captive to follow the lies of the enemy.

Of course, if we don’t do anything to confront the lies, then things will only go from bad to worse in this country and around the world. For those who have eyes to see, we have already seen God’s wrath being poured out on fallen humanity for some time now. We have seen reoccurring epidemics and we will continue to see them get even more deadly and widespread. We have already seen great forest fires that have wiped out entire towns and with the heat index on the rise, due to the consequences of man’s sins, then even greater conflagrations are on the horizon engulfing larger cities in monstrous flames of the roaring fire. We have seen smaller earthquakes traumatize entire communities, it won’t be too long before we see larger and more devastating earthquakes paralyze great sections of our country bringing both death and massive destruction. We could go on, but the point is clear until God’s beloved children rise up to confront the blind guides with the whole truth then things will only get worse. Moreover, things will get worse contrary to who’s the president or whatever new laws and global agreements are passed.

Have you hidden God’s truth in your heart, so that you can expose and confront the lies of the world? Let’s see if that’s so. Most lies from the entertainment industry are carefully knit together as subtle lies in every movie they produce. They almost never miss an opportunity to push the lie of evolution that removes God as the Creator. Evolution destroys the fact that everything was created perfect in the beginning (See Genesis 1:31). Friends, man is not getting better, he’s getting worse. The decline in actual intelligence and memory of historical events is beyond the pale. We can easily see the incompetence in every area of society. We are not evolving but devolving. For some time now the big screen has also been pushing homosexuality and sex before marriage. They have shamelessly ignored God’s Word that homosexuals will receive the due penalty for their error (See Romans 1:27). They have covertly removed God’s law that says marriage between one man and one woman should be consecrated before sex (See I Corinthians 7:2). We must expose the lies coming out of Hollywood by proclaiming the truth. In public education, it’s less subtle when they teach their lies. They teach that abortion is not really killing a child by removing God’s foreknowledge of the child in the Mother’s womb as he’s being formed (See Jeremiah 1:5). It’s less subtle when they teach that small children can choose their own gender when it was God who made woman out of the rib of the first man, Adam, so that he could have a helpmate; so that the two shall become one flesh, fulfilling His command to be fruitful and multiply (See Genesis 2:18,24; 1:28). Our gender was uniquely designed by God to fulfill this command. How is this possible if we change our gender? We must confront the lies of public education by proclaiming the truth.

Many of the lies preached from the pulpits of America are destroying the foundation of classic Christianity. One of the biggest lies is that God is the same in every world religion. How can the God of love be the same god that teaches his followers to kill people in cold blood, chop off their heads, and subject their women to excessive cruelty? On the other hand, our God of love teaches us to turn the other cheek, go the extra mile, and consider others better than ourselves (See Matthew 5:39, 41; Philippians 2:3). This lie has destroyed the exclusiveness of Christianity. Remember that Jesus Christ said emphatically, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one cometh to the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). We must expose the lies in religious life by proclaiming the truth. Another lie is that God did not give us everything we need for life and godliness, so we need their worldly counseling techniques and their pathetic drugs in an attempt to cure their increasing number of diagnosis of psychological problems. In so doing, they have destroyed the sufficiency of Scripture that clearly 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). As new creations (see II Corinthians 5:17) it is essential that we have all the necessary knowledge to confront every problem faced by humanity in the way of emotional and psychological problems. It’s essential that we are transformed in Christ so that we will have the power to confront the lies in religious life by proclaiming the truth. To do so my friend, will deliver many from spiritual blindness and the pit of eternal damnation.

To expose and confront the lies of the world we must listen to and obey, yes, I said to obey, the voice of the indwelling Spirit. Let me say first, and very importantly, that the indwelling Spirit will not contradict the Bible. He will uphold its truth by confirming it over and over again. So, how do we listen to the indwelling Spirit? A good place to begin is to confess your sins before a Holy God and quiet yourself before Him. That is, you cannot listen to the indwelling Spirit while you do all the thinking. Think not! And learn to listen to the still small voice of God through the Spirit. This will be the most difficult part for most because we love to think and keep on thinking until we drown our every voice but our own. If we properly quiet ourselves before the Lord, then it’s even possible to receive a short vision with its immediate interpretation. I have been listening to the indwelling Spirit for many years and I can tell you it almost always has something to do with our work for the Lord. The indwelling Spirit was not sent to be your prophetic looking glass, nor was He sent to tell you unrelated truth about your fascinations and inquiries. On the other hand, in the course of our work, we may see the prophetic and we will see and understand deeper truths beyond anything we could have imagined. Primarily, however, His job is to lead you to expose and confront the lies of the world with His truth. Won’t you join Him today in this great task or will you remain quiet as the entire world is being led astray by their blind guides? The choice is yours.

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.
