NLQ Question of the Week: Why Are Complex Problems Always Met With ‘Turn to Jesus’?

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Are Complex Problems Always Met With ‘Turn to Jesus’? June 2, 2016

QuestionoftheweekThis is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.

This question comes out of tonight’s Quoting Quiverfull where Michael Pearl seems to believe that the way to overcome things like addictions, pornography, prostitution and other serious problems like depression is to turn away from the problem and fear God. Many times I’ve seen Fundamentalist Christians try to claim that cancer can be cured only by turning to Jesus for healing, or mental health and depression can only be answered by prayer, Bible study and believing more strongly in every word of the Gospel. Why this reluctance to use real proven methods to deal with complex problems, and only relying on prayer and Bible study? Going to a doctor or therapist doesn’t make you any less of a Christian.
