I once would have agreed with you. I couldn't understand why someone could get depressed and just not snap out of it, as I assumed it was self-imposed. Though it might be self-imposed to some degree, when you are in it you cannot control it.
Just hope (and pray if that helps you) that it never happens to you, as you may or you may not survive it.
I rebuke that in the name of Jesus Christ:

Galatians 5:22-23
New International Version (NIV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, JOY, PEACE, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Sadness and depression [may] come, but with the Spirit of YHWH God through Jesus, only for a short time. And certainly not to the point that I will need to pop pills.

Can I assume that you have no knowledge of mental illnesses? I was in rehab with two medical doctors, one of which checked himself out intending to commit suicide though we never were told if he actually did do it?
I am proud of the fact that I went through what I did and am still alive and functioning, and I have a happy marriage, two children, who have had 6 grandchildren. Some people have to deal with strokes, heart attacks, paralysis, and go on. At least my problems left me functional - so far. I had the doctor take me off all meds one year, and after that suffered a major depression, which was far worse than I had ever been before.
I won't do that again. In fact I asked my doctor, perhaps last year, if he thought that attempting to go off meds would be a good thing, now that I am retired and don't have to be stressed by work any longer, and he definitely advised against it. This is the same doctor who agreed to take me off meds before, so I don't think he is just keeping me on for the monetary benefit to him.
No, you are not right. My mental problems may have been indirectly caused by some of the attitudes I had as a Christian but my turning from Christianity had nothing do do with my mental problems. I also did not leave Christianity because of any animosity or bad feelings. I just gradually moved away from it, as it became clearer to me that it was based on mythology. Perhaps having more time to read and think when I was disabled helped me to actually think about these things rather than blindly going along with the things that I had been indoctrinated into.
I am not opposed to Christianity or a belief in God now. I just get a bit ticked with believers who treat others badly who are not believers, and also some of the beliefs that are harming people. I also do not believe there is any truth behind the beliefs in the supernatural, so it is rather silly to participate when I don't believe it is true.
Whatever gets you through life is fine with me. Congratulations on your family.

Whether you see any purpose for believers debating their beliefs doesn't change the fact that you expressed that view in an insulting manner. Stating that Christians are betraying their ethical system to pursue personal vendettas to argue insignificant dogma is insulting. And it is sheer hypocrisy to point out such arguments separate when you do so in an insulting manner that separates
<quoted text>
Yet you hypocritically engage in it regularly, including insults about my time while incarcerated, my lack of rehabilitation, questioning my sanity, my honesty, and attacking Christians and their motives
<quoted text>
What??
Paraphrasing serves the purpose of paraphrasing. It expresses the general idea of what someone stated while removing the unnecessary requirement of having to use the exact wording. What serves no purpose is to deny something based on it being paraphrased without indicating that is why you made the blanket denial. It hinders honest exchanges when someone uses semantics after the fact because originally they wanted to give the false impression they don't engage in insults while chastising others for doing the same
<quoted text>
Then by that logic nothing can be taken at face value and nothing you attribute to anyone else's post is anything but your interpretation. This is simply an unethical yet increasingly common tactic being employed by you and a few others to remove themselves from taking responsibility for their own words or to help someone else do the same. IE "filthy Christian liar". Some statements require no special insight or interpretation and simply speak for themselves. To claim an obvious insult isn't really an insult and its on anyone that views it as one not the person who said it simply isn't honest.
<quoted text>
If analyzing your behavior proves defamatory then perhaps you ought to reevaluate how you operate. A good start might be not to insult people and then complain about other's engaging in insults and not trying to blame your obvious insults on the interpretation of someone else
I'm beginning to question your sanity.

This is a tough one

The Spirit grants His gifts as He sees fit. Not everybody gets the same gifts or necessarily all of them. While to be sure there is joy to be found in the Lord and we are to ease our burdens by allowing God to carry them for us, we are not immune from depression or sadness.

1 Peter 4:12-13
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.

We will have hard times and with the Lord will can endure

I guess the question is where we draw the line as far as what remedies along with our faith do we find acceptable.

Is it wrong to bandage a cut or take aspirin for a headache? Couldn't one just turn that suffering over to Christ?

It is an interesting question as far as the line

I agree medication should be a last resort. That it shouldn't be a primary solution and that medications used to alter reality or induce chemical euphoria should be avoided. However physiologically each person is different. Depression can be the result of many things. While I would always encourage people to try everything they can before using medication, in some cases I can see it being necessary. What about someone that is bi-polar, which can also cause depression?

As you probably know I am an ex-addict or I guess i should say I am a recovering addict that does not currently use anything but aspirin. As a rule of thumb I say approaching life sober and without artificial help is the best way to go. And when someone becomes dependent on medication or it becomes a crutch it is counter-productive and harmful. But IMHO some suffering can be avoided and should be. Suffering that can not be avoided or dealt with properly should be turned over to the Lord

Just one man's opinion

Why and how is it that other humans are always speaking for God, stating what God thinks or God does or doesn't do, when these people have not even proved that a God exists?
Your description of what God expects and how one becomes a Christian etc., are you rationalizing. If a God really existed, I am pretty sure that we would be well aware of the fact.
God to you is more interested in our having faith in his existence though unseen, than He is in how we treat our fellow human beings. I think that is a pretty shallow narcissistic God, and I wouldn't worship it, even if I knew it existed. He likes to play mind games rather than be forthright with us, according to what I understand you are saying.
We humans do not approve of or accept that kind of behavior from another human being, so why would we accept if from what some think is the best entity existing?
Your God makes people like Hitler, Gaddafi, and Hussein seem like angels in comparison. Angels are another imaginary entity.
I'm pretty sure Jesus Christ is not upset at all by your rejection of Him as the only access to Almighty God, or who you compare Him to. If I'm not upset with you, I'm sure God isn't either.

You don't know how any Christians on this billboard treat human beings. If you're talking about the passionate discussions, well the worse treatment by far comes from [it aint necessarily so]. But if you want to discuss controversial subjects such as philosophies, then do not complain about the passion of the discussions.

God plainly says in His word what is required. Just because you do not believe it does not mean anything. It just means you do not believe the means by which God chooses to deliver His message which is through people.

HL will be very disappointed in your post

It is insulting and insults serve no purpose but to separate

I'm just kidding!

HL will be fine with your post. The whole point of her being a hypocrite is that it is self-serving to her and those she wishes to side with

Although if you have anything you want to address on-point as it relates to the hypocrisy shown by HL I will be happy to discuss it with you.

Do you claim she doesn't insult people while criticizing others for doing the same? What points exactly in my post causes you to question my sanity?

I am always curious to see how far some of you are willing to move the line when it comes to your own integrity and defending each other. Or was your post simply an attempt to aid knowing you had no actual basis, thus the stand-alone ad-hominom?

I appreciate how Christians try to treat other people in their best Christian manner, such as annoy others, spam others, attack others, spread hatred towards others. The many Christians that I have known and respected in my 66 years, mainly didn't act that way. Topix Christians have really disillusioned me about what Christians do.
That's your fault. You make yourself disillusioned. People can't disillusion me, because I don't put my trust in people. My trust is in Jesus Christ. And Jesus Christ, has never disappointed me. He always comes through. Maybe not in the way I wanted or asked for, but in the way that was best for me.
