This video is not from a Christian perspective, but I find it interesting, and decided to write this:
Actually, demons cause a lot of depression. How come no one talks about demons anymore? In the New Testament, when people were sick they cast out demons. But we don’t have demons??
Many people are depressed because they rightfully feel condemnation because they’re not in Christ Jesus. They’ve hurt people and refuse to admit it and make amends. Pills don’t solve spiritual and rebellion problems.
Vitamins and minerals can help, absolutely, when there are deficiencies, but shutting off the conscience chemically with drugs cannot make us right with God and men — and don’t get rid of the demons.
Reconciliation is the unpreached message because most preachers refuse to reconcile to be free. Many preachers, possibly the majority, James-3 curse people who call them to repent, even wishing that people would die. “How can this be,” James says in chapter 3.
Paul worked out his salvation through *fear* and *TREMBLING* (way more than just “reverence”). Paul ran his race to win, so was able to say: “Herein I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men” (Acts 24:16).
Paul could relax while on earth, and died with a clean conscience, so is now in heaven.
Are we in Christ Jesus, having no condemnation because we walk according to the HOLY Spirit and not according to the flesh?
Pharmaceuticals don’t solve spiritual problems. Repentance, forgiving, reconciliation and praying in the Holy Ghost does — being right with God and people — demon free!!!
“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will heal him who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective.” – James 5:14-16
There is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.” – Romans 8:1
28 One of the scribes came, and heard them questioning together. Knowing that he had answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the greatest of all?” 29 Jesus answered, “The greatest is, ‘Hear, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one: 30 you shall LOVE THE LORD your God with ALL YOUR HEART, and with ALL YOUR SOUL, and with ALL YOUR MIND, and with ALL YOUR STRENGTH.’ This is the *first commandment*. 31 The *second* is like this, ‘You shall LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” – JESUS in Mark 12
