  1. Hello, dear brother.

    Would you please answer a few questions?

    1. Would lithium have helped Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 4:34-37)? What I’m asking is, could lithium have warded off God’s hand? How does that apply to schizophrenics today, for whom lithium is a great help at times?

    2. Are you aware that many of our spiritual fathers were profoundly depressed for much of their lives? What would you say to Edwards, Brainerd, Spurgeon, Luther, Calvin, Bunyan? Would you really look them in the eye and say, “YOU are the problem! No excuses!” Is your answer consistent with:

    And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.
    (1 Thessalonians 5:14 ESV)?

    3. If you came upon Job as he was giving his lament, recorded in Job 3, what would you say to him in light of God’s testimony concerning Job in 2:3?

    4. Are you familiar with Dr. Charles Hodges, a medical doctor who frequently speaks at ACBC conferences? Do you know he stood in Grace Community Church two years ago at the conference you guys hosted and said schizophrenia is a disease? Here is a link to a talk he gave– you can listen to the preview for free:

    5. In light of this, are you comfortable with your statement, “GOD says to the schizophrenic, YOU made you this way!”?
