It is difficult to go through Daniel chapter 4 without realizing that, in our day and time, Nebuchadnezzar would have been diagnosed with some type of mental disorder, medicated to the point of absurdity, and put in an institution with little or no hope of returning to a normal life.
But, what is the Biblical view of mental health? How should we as Christians (and especially Pastors) look at the "mental health" industry? In this sermon, Pastor Voddie gives a Biblical look at these issues.
Great Sermon! I've listened to this sermon in the past and because of it's obvious God given content, I had to revisit it.
There are people in my family who've been diagnosed with 'chemical imbalance' and bi-polarism, all of which I feel is due to all of our sinful natures and the constant push for medication to hide sin is just a bandaid for mankind's sinful affliction.
Minister Baucham, keep preaching the truth, no matter what!

Great Sermon! I am about to listen to this sermon again after several months and because I am taking a course on Pastoral Counseling at RTS. Both my children have had "treatment" in their young adult lives rather than Christian based counseling/therapy. This sermon has had a real impact on me. See also his sermon on Brokenness on YouTube.

Great Sermon! Youtube "most Shocking Psychiatry Documentary" to learn who is behind getting everyone on drugs and the reason. Thank you for preaching about this.
Great Sermon! Very good sermon. Psychology and psychiatry have infiltrated the church and have made it anemic, sick and worldly. There is no place for these fields in the body of Christ. The problem is sin and the answer is the Person of Jesus Christ. Remember Mark 5; Jesus can restore anyone if we repent and believe and receive Jesus as Savior and Lord. Amen!

Great Sermon! My son is a true ADHD child and after 8 years of being on variety of meds...I pulled him off...I had to step out on faith and Let the Lord...in addition, the my church has stepped up to the plate to be the men in his life...those meds... all decrease the size of the brain and can cause permanent delusion and delayed in emotionality ...this is especially seen in teens. God Bless you!

Thank you Mr. Bauchman I am speechless to finally hear a pastor to preach on this TRUTH!!
I totally agree 100% with this passage, always have ever since my dad had me see phsycologists/phsychiatrists for being dumped by a long term boyfriend I had as a teenager and for rebellion. My dad didn't know how to deal with a teen daughter with raging hormones, so the answer was, she's not right. I was in family counseling for most of my teen years, due to my dad's ignorance on this topic. It put a damaging stigma on me growing up. This is what happens when you don't have God in your life! I was suffering from a broken heart, NOT a chemical imbalance!

Great Sermon! What an inspiring sermon! A real eye-opener to the truth! So many of us do not like the truth, lies makes us feel more at ease in a psuedo way, which again accentuates our hatred for the truth!

Great Sermon! Oh, I tried 4 times to listen to this sermon but kept getting interuptions so today I said I am lisning to it no matter what. What a wonderful sermon and so true and I wish more pastors would preach like this. So many people need to hear this and I have people in my family I want to get them to listen to this as they are being treated for mental disorders. God bless your ministry.
Great Sermon! This is a must-hear sermon for anyone (especially Christian) that has been or is under psychological/psychiatric care. I was on anti-depressants as an unbeliever but weened myself off (dangerous to do as Voddie says) soon after being saved. All psychotropic drugs just mask symptoms and can rob you of your God-given humanity. There is even something in this sermon for coffee addicts :)
Great Sermon! The Truth in this is so right on! We need to go to the root of the problems and to have a a God-centered view on psychology and that whole realm. God is still the answer! Thank you, Mr. Baucham.
