Everything we do and experience is processed through the mind, so it should be no wonder to us that satan1, the influences of the unregenerate world, and our own sin nature team up to keep us from God.
Almost since the beginning of my ministry, I have been blessed in serving those who are mentally afflicted in some way. And when it comes to mental illness, permit me to say this: Compared to Jesus Christ, we are mentally ill to some degree or another. Personally, both my mother and I had suffered from major depression, and I suspect I had grandiose depression in my teenage years.
I fully believe that Jesus Christ is the ultimate cure and I would also say that we must take care of the body He has given to us, which includes our mind.
The following is a list of pages that have written in regard to various needs of the human mind:
