24: Depression is Natural and Spiritual

(Full Notes)

Well it looks like as it went I just couldn’t feel good about saying that anxiety is sin, and that depression is sin.  Couldn’t feel good about it.  I guess that tells me I need to get off that track, don’t be thinking that, or saying that.  So I won’t.  And I want everyone to know that I can’t feel good about it, so I don’t want you to worry about it either.  So don’t.

So then what does this say about anxiety?  That all the psychology books are right, that basically anxiety is just inappropriate amounts of fear?

But they’re missing something, right?  They’re missing the ingredient of self-deception.  Right?

Did this just happen or did heaven intervene?  Isn’t this the same question as some others we’ve been considering (what?)?  My BACnet network is now working, I found out from Brandon.  I went ahead and said a prayer of thanks anyway.  You look at things from one side and it’s all caused by God.  You look at it from the other side and there’s a natural explanation.

Jordan Peterson says he could have told his client how they were a victim , or he could have told them they were pathetic and need to take more personal responsibility or something, and both would have been true…. Both sides of the political spectrum might have their true enough points…

Then why do we tend to see things from one side or the other? 

How was the Earth created?  Did God do it or is there a natural explanation?  Well both are true, right?  God works by natural means.

Is depression a lie from the father of all lies?  Or is it the result of brain chemicals?  (See how philosophy is good for understanding psychology?)  Is it a spiritual sickness, or is it scientific, explainable by natural science?  Is it spiritual or is it physical?  Was the Earth created spiritually or naturally?  We know it’s both!  So in this light isn’t it so much easier to see how it’s wrong-headed to think that depression is just one or the other?  Just natural and not spiritual, for example?  Or the other way around?  And of course the same with anxiety and everything else.
