Sin can make you physically sick and make
you suffer emotionally (mental illness).
Sin can make you physically sick and lead
Heart attack, depression, anxiety,
mental illness is a behaviour choice not a bodily disease. All the
behaviours associated with mental illness are without exception, sins
listed in the Bible. Sinful living choices can lead to further sinful
emotional choices like depression and anxiety, which then become the basis
of a mental illness label (diagnosis) by atheistic chemical
psychiatrists. Jesus commanded us not to be anxious and a
"depressed Christian" is an oxymoron, considering the great joy
of possessing the reward and blessing of eternal life in heaven.
behaviours associated with mental illness are solutions to personal
problems. Once you have check-listed the behaviours, simply ask,
"What personal benefit does the person derive from these
behaviours". The label of schizophrenia is applied to those who
choose to become delusional and paranoid. Delusion is the sin of deception
or lying and paranoia is usually pure narcissism mixed with delusions of
grandeur. Schizophrenia, therefore, is a sinful solution to personal
problems and provides a benefit. Here is a list
of benefits a person gains by choosing "mental illness"
- It is
well documented that sin can make you physically sick. Guilt and stress,
for example, can cause a heart attack as well as insomnia which can, over
time, wear down the immune system and lead to an infinite number of
choices in response to everyday life situations can also lead to a person
even choosing delusion and paranoia (insanity) as a behaviour solution to
their personal problems. The behaviour choices that lead to insanity
include protracted anger, protracted "love sickness", protracted
anxiety over financial loss etc. These sinful behaviour choices can lead
someone to then choose to appear disabled and become dependent. Love lost
and financial loss are just two of many problems that insanity solves. In
this way, the behaviours associated with insanity actually provide benefits
to the "mental patient". Psychiatrists always view these
behaviours as being driven by body chemicals. The Christian, however,
knows that there is no behaviour for which we will not be held accountable
for on judgment day, proving all behaviour is the result of freewill
choice of the human spirit.
outline focuses on Bible passages that say sin will make you physically
sick and drive you to choose to mental illness as a solution to problems
- It is
important to remember that when a preacher's wife, for example, has a
secret affair, this creates a serious emotional conflict and a very bad conscience.
In the 1960's the term "cognitive dissonance" was invented to
describe the effect of a bad conscience without giving any credit to God
who revealed it clearly in the Bible 2000 years ago. While such a sinning
adulteress puts on the angel act in church every Sunday, it creates a
never ending conflict within. The person seeks a solution to their own
hypocrisy which often leads them to choose insanity as the only open door
where they find comfort and relief from the bad conscience. Living in their
own fantasy world, the schizophrenic can then find inner peace through
- The bible
makes it very clear that insanity, depression, anxiety, stress, paranoia
are the punishments for living a sinful rebellious life contrary to the
moral pattern revealed by God in the Bible. Remember, insanity is not a
bodily disease, it is a behaviour choice. The only "cure" of
insanity, is repentance of the sinful lifestyle and the sinful behaviour
choices to solve the problems such a sinful lifestyle creates.

A. Bible passages that prove sin
can make you sick, depressed and anxious:
I accept that if my life is full
of willful sin, that I will suffer hurt and harm without realizing the cause
of my unhappiness is the sin itself. I realize that the greatest obstacle to
solving my own problems, is admitting my own person contribution to those
problems. I realize that if my life is "on fire" and I am unhappy and
I do not attend church every Sunday, that I am most likely suffering the
consequences of being a non-Christian.

brought an offering to the Lord of the fruit of the ground. Abel, on his part
also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of their fat portions. And the

B. The mind can make the body
sick: "Vasovagal episodes"
has thoroughly documented how the mind can make the body physically sick.
The way a person thinks can lead to a real medical disease even death.
Likewise, all the behaviours of mental illness are caused by the mind, not
a chemical imbalance in the brain. All behaviour is the result of a choice
of the human spirit.
are very familiar with the fainting that is induced by the mind at the
thought of getting a needle.
episodes are where the thought of getting a needle or the sight or
discussion of blood can trigger fainting.
student was sitting in grade 10 health class in high school, where the
components of blood were begin discussed including some photos. He put
his hand up and asked to be excused from the class to get a drink at the
fountain just outside the classroom door. The teacher, having just
observed that the student was in perfect condition, assumed the request
was frivolous and refused. The student obediently sat in his chair for a
few more minutes, then got up and ran out of the class, sipped a drink,
then fainted on the floor of the hallway.
- This was
not an example of faking, but a very real physiological reaction induced
by the mind. Interesting, that this reaction to blood was present in
three generations of males in the same family. Stories were told how the
grandfather fainted in the bathtub when he cut his own finger in the
kitchen with a knife and drew a bit of blood. His son would faint at getting
needles and the sight or discussion of blood.
grandson, aware of the history of the grandfather and father, would lapse
into rather extreme "panic like" attacks when TV programs like
ET or Emergency were on.
these reactions were overcome in time by just controlling the mind.
- Since the
very thought of getting a needle or seeing blood can trigger a shock like
episode in the body, this serves as undeniable proof that the mind can
make the body sick.
- Whereas a
"vasovagal episode" is not a sinful behaviour, sin can make the
body sick as well, through the same mechanism.
- There is
clear scientific proof that the human spirit can
altar brain chemistry!
C. Delusion and mental illness can be caused by violating the
- Detailed study on
- When we
violate our conscience, we get a bad feeling. This bad feeling has the
power to tear the mind in two leading to delusion and a diagnosis of
psychiatry uses drugs to take away the bad feeling that results from
violating your conscience. It is like the engine warning light coming on
in your car and the psychiatrist disconnects the light bulb. Sure the bad
feeling is gone for the few hours the drugs kick in, but it has not fixed
the problem. Repentance not drugs will cure such schizophrenics whose sin
led them into delusion as a solution to the pain their consciences were
fixes the problem through repentance and confession and the warning light
D. The psychopath and the
psychopath is anyone who has made themselves their own standard of
authority. Evolutionary theory, atheism and humanism have created fertile
ground for a large crop of psychopaths to germinate, grow and come to
maturity. Most of them are not really dangerous, but they have adopted
their own personal version of morals and made themselves their own god.
Whatever they have decided is ok to do, is ok to do! They can murder, and
it doesn't bother them because after all, they kill mosquitoes and rats
and cows all the time. Man is just another animal.
not only believe in the theory of evolution, they have understood its
implications for the purpose and meaning of the existence of man. Since
there is no God, then all morals are determined by the collective
agreement of mankind. There really is no such thing as right or wrong,
since sin is defined by a God they do not believe in. Sure society has
rules, taboos etc, but they are smart enough and perceptive enough to
notice that these rules are changing. Whereas adultery and homosexuality
was once a capital offence, today it is openly promoted. A psychopath is
someone who is lived in a time when adultery was a capital offence, but
was able to look ahead to the present time when he realized adultery would
be the norm and accepted without consequence. Living in a time when
adulterers were stoned in the public square, they are able to look forward
to the present time when TV commercial openly say, "Life is short,
Live it up, Have an affair, Call us today."
therefore, are usually quite intelligent, philosophical and think
"outside the box". A psychopath is able to do things others view
as wrong and it does not bother them because they believe that whatever
they have personally decided is right, is right and they don't care if
others have determined it is wrong.
psychopaths generally do not suffer from depression, anxiety or delusion
because they believe murder and cannibalism is the right thing to do.
Since they believe there really is no right or wrong, there is almost
nothing they can do to cause their conscience to give them a bad feeling.
to popular myth, psychopaths have a conscience that is as healthy as any
Christian. They have simply trained their conscience that all behaviour
they do is right and nothing they do is wrong.
this to the general public, we can clearly understand why non-Christians
are never driven to delusion by secretly having an affair behind their
spouses back or living common law. Whereas they understand the social
consequences of such adultery, they do not think it is wrong, per se.
Therefore non-Christians will live in the sin of common law in a totally
good conscience, whereas a Christian would experience internal conflict
and a bad conscience.

E. Healing comes from repentance & confession:
in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own
understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your
paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and turn away from
evil. It will be healing to your body And refreshment to your bones. " Proverbs 3:5-8
2. "Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for
the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil
in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one
who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he
has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. Therefore, confess your sins to
one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The
effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. " James 5:14-16
3. "For the time already past is sufficient for you
to have carried out the desire of the Gentiles, having pursued a course of
sensuality, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties and abominable
idolatries. In all this, they are surprised that you do not run with them into
the same excesses of dissipation, and they malign you; but they will give
account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. " (1 Peter
- The Bible
is clear that sin can cause physical disease and make a person to become
depressed, anxious and delusional (mental illnesses).
- It is
dangerous for us to violate our conscience because after a time, we harden
our conscience and we feel no pain any longer. This is why people admitted
to mental hospitals will recover on their own, if they are not given any
drugs to interfere with this natural process of destroying the conscience.
After the pain is gone, the behaviours of insanity no longer are needed as
a solution and they chose to give up these behaviours and return to
people diagnosed (by their behaviour choices) as "mentally ill"
confess their sins to Jesus and repent of their sinful lives and put their
faith and trust in God, they will be almost instantly "cured" of
their mental illness by changing their behaviours.
