by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies – How Far Have We Come?
Editor’s note: It’s amazing some of the most innocent things that people in Evangelical circles take offense at and see conspiracies. Is it really a bad thing that the hospital is calling to ask new mothers if they have issues? Outreach is always good. This isn’t some vast plan cooked up by Big Pharma to hook people on depression meds, it’s an attempt to prevent any more Andrea Yates from happening.
How far have we degenerated from God’s original plan?
Recently a new mother mentioned to me that before her post-partum checkup, the hospital called to check if she was suffering from depression.
“Why would they ask you this question? I asked.
“Oh, don’t you know it’s a standard question?” she replied. “Most mothers have depression after a baby. Didn’t you hear about the new mother who recently committed suicide because she was so depressed because of her new baby?”
I was appalled. What is their purpose? To get them started on anti-depressants? Make them victims? Give them a pill to counteract our deceived society?………….
Snipped out Nancy breaking down all the reasons, which mostly boiled down to mommas not Biblically training their daughters and evil wicked state-led society. Nancy’s solution? Push her magazine. If you know a mother of a newborn that you have concerns about please do not bring her a trite and guilt-inducing magazine, offer to help, to give her a break so she can take a nap, bring her a meal, do something concrete that will make her life just a little bit more bearable. Help her get the help she needs in that moment.
As you go out of your home, always be prepared to drop seeds of truth wherever you go. Take a few Above Rubies magazines with you. Put them in a plastic bag in your purse so they don’t get mutilated. Give them to people and to mothers when you meet them. You may not have a chance to say a lot, but you’ll never know how the Holy Spirit can speak to them through the pages of the magazine. We need to get this magazine out in greater and greater ways. I’m tired of being bombarded with liberal and progressive jargon. The feminists and liberals do not keep quiet. Why do we when we have the truth?
