Today we continue our series of articles that proclaim that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness. As the Church prepares to celebrate the Resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ, unfortunately many in the world don’t feel much like celebrating. A dark shadow has been cast over the world from an increase in rampant lawlessness to the destabilization of other nations. The stress level of the world’s population is off the scale due to fear of catastrophic natural disasters, impending pandemics, the possibility of world war, or an increase in bloody persecution of Christians. The world is faced with a multitude of problems. In our struggle to walk as children of light in a dark world we have all lost many battles to the old nature and the enemy. Many Christians who are burdened with life’s problems find little accurate and authoritative counsel from others. For many they find little comfort or direction from the Bible which has resulted in a life of bondage to emotional and psychological problems forcing them to the world’s counselors to find a cure. Often times in desperation they have readily accepted the remedy of psychotropic (mind altering) drugs leading to life of addiction, other dependence, and spiritual depression. By God’s grace I want to spare you of that. Continue reading Finding Answers to Life’s Problems
Out of nowhere a tornado strikes un-expectantly in the Dallas area, while England is submerged under the worst flooding imaginable, then there is the constant threat of terrorism, unknown plagues, or lawlessness in the streets of America. The stress is beyond measure as more people line up at the counselors office or stock up more food and ammo to prepare for the inevitable. And if we are honest many of us or the people we know may already be reaching their breaking point. As we enter a New Year then wisdom says we must insulate our self with the pure teaching of God’s Word now before we reach our breaking point. Continue reading Breaking Point
As we have already seen in the previous articles many things can cause depression and the more problems not dealt with in a biblical way, the deeper the depression. So let’s look at another problem that can cause depression, which so many suffer from today – loneliness. Why does loneliness run so rampant in our society? Could it be because there is little face to face fellowship with other people on a regular basis? Much of the world spends an enormous amount of time sitting in front of their TV sets, their computers, or on their Smartphones. Indeed there is plenty to keep us busy, but many have only a few friends, if any at all, and they too are busy sitting in front of their TV sets, their computers, and on their Smartphones. After awhile, loneliness can turn into depression especially if there are other problems present that are not dealt with in a biblical way.
One of the characteristics of the new world is its acceptance of psychological counseling that attempts to modify man’s behavior and cure the ailments of his heart. This is accomplished through therapeutic counseling and the administering of psychotropic drugs. It’s all quite logical: if you remove God or admit that He is incapable of fixing your heart or changing your behavior then something must take His place and that’s where psychology exerts its authority over the masses. The intervention of psychology is a slippery slope that began many centuries ago in the Middle East and has spread to the West at the same pace as rejecting Jesus Christ as God’s Messiah. This has grown so widespread that nearly fifty percent of the population in America has regularly visited a counseling center or taken a psychotropic drug.

CAPA will examine the awful bondage to the new world religion (godless psychology) promoted by the world system. How widespread is the bondage to psychology? And why is psychology called godless and has become the new world religion promoted by the world system? We will answer these questions, but more importantly we will re-discover how the Bible has given us everything we need for life and godliness. No matter what the end time saint is facing in a turbulent world, if it be loneliness, anxiety, or depression we will discover together how God’s Word not only gives us the answer but the indwelling Spirit to help us to apply His remedies.
