Documentary film on ‘The evils of psychiatry: the truth about bipolar, depression, abuse, disorders and DSM,’ by Nephtali
Nephtali did a great job on this video, as he gives a Biblical explanation and application.
It is a fact that most of these diagnoses, problems, or behaviors are sin. Others are simply personality traits. 100% of us have sin, and 100% of us have personalities.*
Our sinful nature is a direct result of being a byproduct of the fallen nature of man. We’re all born into sin, as a descendant of the seed of Adam. That is why to be able to inherit eternal life in heaven, we must be born twice (born-again) of the Son of the seed of David – Jesus Christ. Once a person becomes born-again, they will still sin. But sin will no longer rule or rein in their life. Their character will no longer be a continual lifestyle of sin, but of holiness.
We’re all created in the image of God. But once we’re born-again, we then become children of God. Yes – the Lord changes His children. People are changed even more as they submit to, and abide to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
“As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, be ye holy; for I am holy (1 Peter 1:14-16).
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
Sadly many Christians do not realize that most the psychiatric drugs (perhaps all), prescribed by psychiatrists are sorcery. What did the Lord Jesus say about sorcery?
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8).
Don’t just believe in Jesus. Commit to, trust, and ‘put on’ the Lord Jesus. “But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof” (Romans 13:14).
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord (Acts 3:19).
