by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Drug Addicts
Editor’s note: This article started out as a rant against boys taking Ritalin, but very swiftly morphed into Michael telling mothers exactly what was wrong with them. It’s pretty sick and fits with our recent discussions in the comments on the lack of all compassion and disdain that Michael holds everyone but himself and Jesus. This is going to take a couple of days to unpack. Where does it say in the Bible that taking medicine for a problem is a sin?
It is a development that could have been predicted, for many of the mothers are drug addicts also. Their drug is called Prozac, or some other name with the same application. It too controls the moods, just like Ritalin. There is an herb to take the place of Prozac, it is called St. John’s Wort. It is an old drug, a natural drug, but nonetheless a drug. It is sad to look out over a crowd of strong, young families knowing that as many as 1/4 of the mothers over 35 years old are on Prozac, and about the same percentage of squirming little boys are on Ritalin. One psychologist told us that as many as 1/3 of all the young boys in the school system of Texas are on Ritalin.
When I think of Ritalin or Prozac I think of a great big bandage that is covering up an ugly wound so that no one will see it. Very likely a woman that goes on Prozac today will need to double the dosage in six months, and within two years will need to add another drug to her growing arsenal of drugs in order to maintain the same results. Drugs are not the answer. God’s Word is exceedingly clear on that point. Oh, I know your case is different.
