The Christian Bible suggests that words are important because they convey honesty and regret with intelligence and symbolism.

Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Liar, Liar" (1997) echo this intelligent sentiment.

There are many handicaps in our world: poverty, AIDS, unemployment, blindness, obesity, etc. However, one of the most crippling handicaps is one of speech impediments. Those who have speech impediments arising from various conditions such as brain stroke or deafness or a natural lisp or slurred mumbled tongue have great difficulty in conveying intelligence with words.

This makes society bigotries against those with speech impediments the most impactful of all bigotries against the handicapped.

Educational institutions and political organizations must take care to spread spiritual teachings that reinforce humanity's appreciation for any human being's right to express interest in communicating intelligence, be it with art, sign language, or private emotion despite the species crippling effects of speech impediments.

This is what makes communication-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Liar, Liar" (1997) representative of optimistic human dreams.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!

Um, torrette syndrome might possible a case of demon possession. Most people that have it seemingly blurt out profanity and nasty stuff uncontrollably. When I was like 10 one of my friends mom had it, she was blurting out all kinds of foul and nasty stuff she had no control over her tongue. As a child at that time I was crackin up it was halariously funny to me, especially up in the store if we went.

Medical science is now finding that some psychological illnesses may be caused by bacterial or viral infections (Tourettes can be caused by bacterial infections):

Just as you know it not to be factual, I know it to be factual from personal experience with an affected person. I know a person who overnight developed OCD complete with a vocal tic. None of us thought it was humorous, least of all the affected person. They had been an outgoing, independent person but they had become agoraphobic, riddled with nightmares and terrified to be alone. This lasted for months. It was a mystery that continued until they were diagnosed with strep throat and placed on long term antibiotics. They recovered only after the strep diagnosis and treatment with antibiotics.

God bless you and yours

"Born again" means different things to different people. Most the people on here who claim to be "born again" show very little interest in obeying Christ's commands, so that definition is clearly very vague to many. I simply refer to myself as Christian and see no reason to place qualifiers before the term.

I believe in God. I believe Jesus was God's son, that He is our Saviour, that He died for our sins, and that He was resurrected. I have accepted Christ as my Saviour and repented of my sins. I have been baptized. Because I love Christ, I do everything in my power to obey Him in ALL He commands.

God bless you and yours.

Well, I'm not saying that all brain disfunctions or disorders are due to demons but many are. And I've witnessed much personally myself. For some reason unknown to me I can sense evil spirits stronger than most folks in different instances and circumstances. I hope you are not one of those kinof christians that avoid the mention of demons or don't want to hear of them.

I don't avoid the mention of demons, nor do I mind if you wish to speak of them. I simply have no personal experience with demons.

God bless you and yours.

Saw an interesting programme recently where a 15 year old tourette sufferer was helped by a change of diet. His episodes of shouting and his tic was eased after several weeks on a special diet.
On the same programme a little lad with severe epilepsy was also put on a special diet and his seizures stopped.

Some might have accused these 2 lads of being demon possessed but it was proven that diet played a large part in helping to heal w physical problem.

Um, person who posted this thread....you must have read in scripture Mark 7:32. Jesus healed the man of his speech impediment and deafness, which shows that one can be healed of this health delima if they believe and trust the Lord.

So...you are baught, sold and convinced that its food that causes torettes and or epilepsy? Possibly mind altering chemicals in the food is what we are dealing with here more so not the food itself. When the mind is altered it provides an entry point for devils to enter. The bible says its not what goes into the stomach that defiles a man but what comes out of his heart Mark 7:19. In other words food doesn't make a person blurt out curse words.

They are finding many medical causes for what used to be considered mental illnesses now. Not in all cases, but in enough to warrant a medical evaluation for anyone who suffers from unexplained mental illnesses, especially if it was rapid onset with no know cause. If they can afford the medical tests:

food allergies

viral infection panel

test for numerous bacterial infections now know to cause mental illness symptoms such as: the whole lyme disease family, mycoplasma infections, strep A,( https://www.google.com/#hl=en&tbo=d&s... )

Immune deficiencies

Vitamin deficiencies

Yeast overgrowth in the gut

And probably many others.....

Many of these illnesses can be improved or cured with proper medical care. I am hopeful this new information will help remove the stigma around mental illness, but I doubt it.

God bless you and yours!
