    “ Courageous Truthful Speaking! ”
    Thank you for being willing to speak the truth in love. I have searched high and low for a sermon like this. Most pastors are afraid to touch the West's sacred cow - "happiness" that comes from legalized drugs. In the past couple years alone I have seen several people ranging in age from 13 to 60-something commit suicide due to being on drugs (anti-depressant and/or anti-anxiety). More and more evidence is coming out that these drugs which have been a financial boon for pharmaceutical are damaging people's minds and bodies. In fact, Harvard Medical has done a study showing a probably connection between benzodiazepines and dementia. God's Word tells us to gird up the loins of our minds, to be sober, to have self control - not to numb our minds or put a chemical in to give us a "happy feeling". Our brothers and sisters in the East who are daily persecuted for their faith are not crying out for anti-depressants, they are running to the Lord in prayer and consuming God's Word. How I pray that this truth gets out, so the Church in the West wakes up from it's life-dominating dependence on mind-altering drugs which stunts our spiritual growth and inhibits our service to the Lord. May we focus on that which is eternal and work while it is still day!

    “ The Danger of Worldly Diagnosis/Philosophy ”
    The troubled spirits of Cain & Saul were from hateful envy, unlike David. Depression is not an excuse to avoid truth-telling, self-examination, or indulging in personal sin. It might even be the *unrighteous expression* of legitimate provoked sorrow (Elijah), or anger turning to wrath, "going off" (Moses), tempting to retaliation (David with Nabal). Envy, unjust anger, suicide, self-destructive behavior, or revenge the Bible prohibits. The world's philosophy is to make "emotional well-being" their Chief End, and so they teach all to avoid the truth, just "move on", suspension of convictions, pursuing pleasure or industry as distractions to remedy. Thus guilt-ridden Cain, says Matthew Henry, turned his trouble-driven conscience ("more than I can bear") into building cities and industry, while remaining impenitent of Abel's murder, the reason for the shameful "mark" on him. Thus the worldly make *personal happiness* their pursuit by indulging the flesh, "let us eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die" (anesthetized living) instead of turning from sin in repentance and living "soberly, righteously, godly in the present (evil) age" (Titus 3). Jesus warned up front that being a true disciple might cost family and friends, broken relations (Luke 14), not peace with all.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    Thankyou brother Brian for your wisdom on this subject.I have suffered from depression but since the Lord chose me twenty years ago I have learnt the biblical truths to deliver me from it. I tried anti-depressants but they made me feel like a zombie. So I put my trust in God to help me to change my negative thinking that I get sometimes, by learning memory verses and preaching the gospel to myself everyday.Good Christian music is important too.I can still get down but I have the tools from God to help myself get out of it.Praise God for His healing words.I have listened and read much on depression, my husband suffers from it too, exercise helped him, but he is not a Christian yet. I know now how to help him and myself. Both of us came from very dysfunctional families. Amazing how our two daughters dont suffer from it, they are both Christians. Thank God! Its all the baggage from the past that comes up and the devil. Thats when I need to remember God's promises, renew my thinking,and do what is right. I thank God for men like yourself who are compassionate and very wise in dealing with this very common affliction in the Church today. How we need each other to support and pray for one another.Bless you!
