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.
