Above Rubies Nancy Campbell does not mention Prozac or any SSRI drug by name in this loathsome take on the best way to cure depression. She simply parrots the standard line in Evangelicalism that implies that depression is caused by lack of faith. She just hints that Jesus is better than Prozac.
This is just the type of toxic theology that leaves a body count. Depression is not demonic, it’s not a bad attitude, it’s not selfish. It can be circumstantial, or chemical, or the result of an underlying medical condition. It reveals nothing about the state of one’s soul.
People taught that it’s selfishness or demonic in the church tend not to get legitimate treatment, be that getting a physical to look for medical causes, medication or talk therapy.
