Are Personality Disorders New Territory for God?

Twenty-first Century Americans seem to think that we have entered into all new territory. To read current psychiatric studies, it is almost like we have arrived at a place where medical and psychological sciences have described and told us exactly what our disorders are, and now they are removed a step away from us, and our behavior is no longer part of our personal responsibility.

Nearly every sin Paul describes in the New Testament Epistles are now disorders and diseases that we can be diagnosed with. Once a person gets the diagnosis we can comfortably excuse what God has called sin.

1. Should we excuse sinful attitudes, and unbiblical behavior because the person has a disorder?
2. Was God incorrect in formerly declaring that these were sins?
3. Is it now true that people with these recently catalogued disorders are not exhibiting the sinful attitudes and activities of their flesh, they just are dealing with a medical disorder?
4. Are these almost 300 catalogued disorders new to modern times?
5. Were these same “disorders” not previously experienced and dealt with in past generations of believers using only the Word of God and not counselors, plus medicine, plus psychiatric frameworks?

Each of us as followers of Christ, have been commissioned by Him to spend our lives going and sharing the Gospel. Some of us preach, some of us pray, some of us go to other lands, others of us serve in the nursery, adult, youth, or children’s ministry; but each of us are seeking to be a part of bringing others to Christ.

Hear Christ’s Message

The seven most important letters in the Bible are usually overlooked, the seven authored by Jesus personally, and sent to us individually. For many reasons, those seven letters, comprising chapters 2 & 3 of Revelation, are the most important in the Bible.

The seven most important letters in the Bible are usually overlooked—the seven authored by Jesus personally, and sent to us individually. For many reasons, those seven letters, comprising chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation, are probably the most important part of the Bible for you and me. For in them, and in chapters like the following, Jesus has written the secrets of: how we can live forever; how we can have a joy-filled life; and how we can experience real love.

Live forever “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” -John 17:3

Joy-filled life “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.” -John 10:17

Never fear the future. “A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also.” -John 14:19

Experience real love And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” -1 Corinthians 13:13

The last message Jesus has for us today is His wonderful plan. He has spelled out what He wants us to be like. He has detailed how He by His grace will enable us to live! Jesus is here. CHRIST SEEKING OUT HIS CHURCH: Our Lord Jesus Christ came to give so much. Have you received what Jesus came to give ?
