    After I got done stabbing my eyes out I was struck with the thought that the sentence “______ has no place in a believer’s life” really has no place in a believer’s life. I’ve never once heard that used in a way that wasn’t dismissive, overly simplistic, or judgmental.

    Wow, so it’s not enough to be ashamed of your body and worried about your salvation, you’ve got to cut off half of your normal emotions as well. That can’t possibly add impossible stress. /sarcasm

      And then it’s a ridiculous cycle. The stress it adds can only make you feel worse, because you’re not *supposed* to be stressing. If you had real faith, you wouldn’t be anxious. So you get more stressed out. The fact of having stress creates more stress, and you end up worrying about worrying.

      • NeaDods

        All the whole assuming that everyone else is doing it effortlessly and not knowing that they’re also messed up and hiding it. Wow. You’ll know we are Christians by our sweet Prozac, apparently.

    Way to insult believers.

    Generalized anxiety disorder, phobias, social anxiety, and panic disorder: not a chemical imbalance; a sin.
