Anti-Depressants: Psychological Side-Effects Are Even Worse Than Thought
A new paper finds that the situation involving mood-leveling medications could be even more dire than previously believed. A survey of 1,829 people who had been prescribed anti-depressants found large numbers of people, over half in some cases, reporting on psychological problems - thoughts of suicide, sexual difficulties and emotional numbness - due to their medication. This paper adds to growing concerns about the not only the scale of the problem, such as over-prescription of medications, but how well they solve more problems than they cause.
Psychologist and lead author Professor John Read from the University of Liverpool, said in their statement, "The medicalization of sadness and distress has reached bizarre levels. One in ten people in some countries are now prescribed antidepressants each year. While the biological side-effects of antidepressants, such as weight gain and nausea, are well...

I am going to bed shortly but I wouldn't be surprised if I don't get to sleep right away because of pondering some of the incredible things I saw in this video. The video concerns: Armageddon News
That was an awesome video and made those scriptures she read come alive and so real. That's what I personally believe about the rapture and the coming Tribulation. This video makes me want to not only pray even harder for the unsaved but do more to stay close to God and be His witness to the lost. Thanks, Dopey, for sharing this powerful video, that you just "happened" to come up on. When that happens to me I think of it as God wanting to tell me something maybe.It did confirm things for me anyway.
thank you Michael H for your thoughts and wisdom, when the centerpoint is Christ and making Him known, the other things can fall away a bit. I see God's wrath as hell. And that is what we should be warning unbelievers about, because time is short for all, because this life isn't very long at all! I do agree that there are many varied opinions, and that sometimes makes it difficult to communicate in short space.

IMHO I think SteveR just couldn't help himself in craftily attempting to slide in a comment intended to discredit opposition to the RCC, that is why I repsonded. If it wasn't me, he could just as likely have picked on someone else. btw I am thrilled, if that is the word, being in prayer with others here on SermonAudio for the salvation of your and our lost families and loved ones.
I'm so glad we got that resolved sooner than later. I would have been miserable all day if it had gone unresolved.
And, yes, being able to enjoy the fellowship of others likeminded and being able to pray for each other's burdens is indeed a God given privilege that I would never jeopardize for secondary theological/eschatological differences.
All the best to you and your family in Christian love, Michael.

No Michael, not at all.
You may not know but Steve has been on my ignore list for many months. This is the first comment to ME in a long time that has been civil and I felt I could respond to.
I certainly did not intend to condone his insulting comment about your view or imply that it was civil and I apologize to you for not making that known in my comment. We may disagree about eschatology but I believe we are both mature enough to disagree with all due respect.

I will agree its the GOSPEL that unites Gods people, and not the bloodlust colonization of Palestine
A civil comment that I can respond to. Thank you.
Agree that the ten northern tribes were initially united with Judah and Benjamin as a single kingdom and all were God's people. However, they quickly split into two kingdoms and finally God cast off the northern kingdom into Assyrian captivity and He disowned them as a people (Hosea 1:10).
That said, Ezekiel's prophecies speak of the time that God would gather both houses of Israel and they would become one nation/kingdom (Ezek 37:22) with one king (David, obviously a type of Christ, Ezek 37:24). I believe that time is clearly depicted in Rev 17:12 (not yet a united kingdom) and Rev 17:16 when they first hear the gospel and turn from the harlot to the living God.
Hosea 1:10 in context compared to Romans 9:25 is very telling.
Lurker wrote: Yes, I see what you mean about the seven mountains/hills of Rome. I've heard of that interpretation but it really is a stretch. I am inclined to believe the seven mountains (high places, e.g. altars) are the mountains of Israel mentioned 15 times in Ezekiel. Ezekiel's prophecies were directed to the house of Israel (ten northern tribes) which I believe are represented by the ten horns on the heads (mountains) of the beast which had received no kingdom at that point in the Revelation storyline. They would receive their kingdom when Paul preached to them scattered amongst the Gentiles.... Acts 13:48 compare to Isaiah 49:6. God bless.

Dopey: Lurker, I have respectfully considered your request in the light of scripture and this is the answer I have received: God: "Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men."--- Acts 5:29
Have it your way. I suspect SermonAudio takes a dim view on harassment so I'll let them deal with you.
Dopey wrote: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.---Proverbs 27:17 John UK, are you in a sharpening mood? A couple of weeks ago I took stock of some things. I noticed that I had four computers, two of which I bought new about a year and a half ago and neither of which I had ever used. I also had one used one I had bought about a year and a half ago and which I had used a couple of times. I also had one about 10 to 11 years old which I used about 99% of the time including all of any time I spent on the internet, thus including SermonAudio. Perhaps I thought I needed one for each hand and each foot Well John if you care to sharpen, I will respond; if anyone else tries it until you have I will ignore him/her. ******** Dopey2, you are a hoot.

If one of them responds differently to what you have stated we will know your analytical powers ("Everyone") leave a lot to be desired and you need a serious rest."
I would suggest the poster(Dopey 2 and his other IDs) has Dopey envy and should be ignored
penelope Thanks for posting to me Let me be honest and open regarding those holding a pre-trib rapture interpretation that there is a wide range of...let me use the word application
For me I indeed believe the people of God will go through much tribulation right now, and Jesus Christ is more than worth anything we suffer for His name's sake, others heartbreakingly to me, pretend they will have ease and comfort, and careless of the real persecution of Christians going on today (YUK!)
Space is limited here So let me simply say this, the knowing for the child of God that because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the redeemed will never be objects of the wrath of God, maybe as needed His severe corrective disciple for our good, to perfect holiness in us (see Hebrews), that prophecy, to ultimately be with Jesus Christ, accepted in the presence of His Glory blameless with great joy forever
ought to produce in us a wonderful hope (DESIRE) of seeing Him face to face no matter what we suffer here, and at its deepest level the desire to be found faithful and holy whenever that meeting comes.

Sure I know. I just wanted to see how far he would go to distort God's word to support his viewpoint.
Notice how every time he gets it wrong, he either ignores the issue and quietly moves on or else laughs it off as a joke.
Michael H -- many have said that the RCC influenced both futurism and preterism. Problem with this would be that the promises of Revelations for the believers going through tribulation and persecution today, well, it shut for them, saying it was all fulfilled already or that it will happen in the future or "soon", "almost there but not quite". I often wonder if that's why some posters make jokes regarding Christian persecution, its just not a big deal because the "real" events are "almost" here, while I see the world around me and it is the book of Revelations! Those are my thoughts and I can provide links, but I certainly do not want to interfere with your conversations anymore than that, your posts are greatly appreciated!
Duh wrote: The more pertinent question here is, what are you reading into that text Dopey, that you couldn't in the Ezekiel 'rapture' text which Lurker demolished? Where does the Bible call this a rapture? What do you understand happened to Elijah in this 'rapture'? Under whose reign was Elijah 'raptured'? Think carefully before you answer these questions, because you may get a surprise.
Duh I think you already know I am a pre-trib pre-mill Baptist type believer so allow me to offer a consideration
our, meaning all of us genuinely born again of the Holy Spirit with our, I am going to use (or abuse) the word friend here is NOT that he believes in the rapture - which to me as a Baptist is bizzare knowing the RCC opposes a literal interpretation of Revelation (Bibical Prohpecy) - a whole other issue.
BUT his "Catholicism", his 'cannot be trusted' in his postings, his support/approval/endoursement of SteveR and JohnY and opposition to people like Observer
While Prophecy is indeed an important matter to believers IMHO it might be a distraction to hide the real issue at stake
I would think you already know this and would likely not fore example agrue Prophecy with Jehovah's Witnessess Mormons or Muslim or even so called emergent

How different from the fellowship of true believers which we enjoyed earlier, despite differences, between Observer, Michael Hranek and myself. ______________________
Dolores is a kind hearted woman who will talk to anyone. Still I would hope that she knows who you really are.
That leaves your fellow Jesuits John Y and SteveR.
regarding the article, people are finding higher and higher amounts of heavy metals in hair samples of americans, makes sense they are having more mental issues. too bad mainstream medicine ignores this and uses synthetics like a bandaid. there are ways to pull heavy metals out of the body. and when you think about it, with our exposure, it makes sense that would be an issue..... especially when we celebrate injecting substances directly into the blood (no barrier to brain) that contain heavy metals like aluminum, that otherwise would be passed through the GI.
