Quote# 78273

(On the topic of Psychology being the Doctrine of Devils)

Rather then sitting down and talking to a person we don't know.. telling them all our problems.. wouldn't it be better to speak and pray to Jesus. He is the One we are to put our Trust in. He is the One that directs our paths in this life.. He knows that we are going through this trial and He is the One we should be talking to.. not a stranger.. that could care less about our problems.. Jesus is the only One that can help us through our trials and tribulations..

Jesus doesn't answer. Psychologists have been known to do.

Why not listen to the nice voices in your head, at least they're not strangers

So you want to treat mental illnesses by having people talk to the air and pretend it can grant them wishes? Ummmmmm, okay...I suppose next you'll be telling skin cancer patients to go to tanning salons for treatment.

'couldnt' its 'couldnt' you dumb american fucks!

Hmmm... person who knows their shit, and has been trained to counsel, or a mythical god-man. Yep, I'm gonna go with the actual, live, person, here.

Plus, I tried Jesus -- it only made me more depressed and suicidal.

@ChrisInManc -- Many of us know that, thanks. And it's not our fault that the most ignorant and slack-jawed of our countrymen have access to the internet.

Can Jesus write a prescription for Trazadone?


It's "it's" not "its". And I think you meant "couldn't"? But what do I know, I'm just a dumb American fuck. Oh, and nationalities are capitalized.

If Jesus answers back, you need to see a Psychiatrist ASAP.

Talking to an imaginary friend doesn't solve mental illness, it IS mental illness.

12/26/2010 5:05:21 PM


And people like this are one reason I'm glad that my parish priest had a PhD in psychology. He knew when to take your confession and when to gently suggest that you might consider therapy and a referral to a psychiatrist.

You're ignoring the same fact my ex-wife ignored:


12/26/2010 5:10:34 PM


Except Jesus never talks back to us when we talk to him. There is your first clue that he's only an imaginary friend.

So you want insane people to be reinforced in their delusions? Fuck off.

And to think that all this time I thought Scientologists were the only ones who thought that...

Take your troubles to a mythical dead Jew.

The problem is that Jesus doesn't answer us. We might as well tell our problems to the toaster. If he does seem to answer us, it's because we made the answers up in our heads and imagined it was Jesus. If he doesn't answer us, we're even worse off, because now not only do we have problems, but we're convinced that God doesn't give enough of a crap to help us.

An extra dose of fuck you to hell bitch from this Psychologist-in-training. It's nice to know my profession that helps millions each year is a tool of teh debbil.

I usually find Jesus rather disturbing and intimidating to talk to. I think it's because He has an image problem. In my admittedly limited experience, He always appears in a flat, two-dimensional guise, typically whitish, with a light bulb for a nose, although sometimes he adorns it with a shade. He also seems to have a curious and intimate friendship with flies, spiders and moths, who He often drives frantic. Sometimes He looms oppressively just a few feet above me, other times He hovers menacingly overhead but too high to hear anything He says.

12/26/2010 7:18:28 PM


Yeah, I mean it's not like psychologists know how the human mind works or anything. Oh wait...

Prof. Bill Hill

I used to have some interesting conversations with Jesus.
I'd say, "My Lord what shall I do?"
He'd say, " ".
I'd say, "Pardon, My Lord?"
He'd repeat, " ".
"Oh", I'd say, "I think I understand. Shall I persecute homosexuals, my Lord?"
He'd reply, " ".
"I'll take that as a yes, then, my Lord. Amen"

12/26/2010 7:29:41 PM


Yes, instead of sitting down and talking with someone who's actually real, and trained in such matters, we should talk to an invisible, non-existent being, which, I would think, would make the problems worse. But that's just me.

12/26/2010 7:35:51 PM


Yes, it is better to speak to Jesus. If he talks back you are indeed insane.

Because talking to guys who've been dead for two thousand years is sooo good for your mental health...

"my CURRENT church can help me a LOT better than any 'professional'" --CWC (source)

Yeah. That's how bad you sound.

12/26/2010 9:17:12 PM


Try telling that to my dad, who, as a psychiatrist, actually DOES care about peoples' mental health. That's the reason he became a psychiatrist.

12/26/2010 9:45:05 PM


When I last tried the pray-for-it method of getting through a depression I ended up nearly killing myself.

When I last tried professional mental help for the same problem, my condition improved.

Personal experience tells me that professionals wot are human can help me get well better than religion can.
