-Mental Illness is the cognitive reasoning and explanation people say to grasp why things are carried out in horrific proportion.
-Why? I don’t give a flying turkey hoot what “belief system” you have, but there’s a clear darkness/enemy in the World that delights in human destruction.
Let’s break these things down in basic form. I guarantee you that even if guns were illegal in the U.S., there would still be killings and horrific incidents. If someone is determined enough, they can create destruction with everyday objects. 2 sentences, sounds like a good summary to me. Now to get real messy.
Mental Illness. Humanistic approaches to “mental illness” will never stop the problems. Look at the profiles of all the people who carried out horrific crimes in the past 2 years. What are their similarities? Seclusion, deep-rooted frustrations or anger, and/or a deep lack of caring for others are the top 3 that come to mind. I’m not some psychologist to give you all the theoretical reasoning behind mental instability and etc.
However, I can tell you from personal experience that there are thoughts and voices that are of death. Everyone has them, and if you say that you don’t then you’re blind to what’s going on around you and in you. People ACT out of what they believe about themselves. Think about this for a second. No seriously. Why did you just act the way you did yesterday when something unnerving happened? Was it calm or an outburst? It’s from how you view yourself and expectations.
Mental Illness? STOP LABELING SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE DEALS WITH. It’s ANYONE who hears thoughts that destroy ones core and image enough that they start to act out in anger and hatred of the world and life. “Geez, I wonder where these thoughts come from?” Where do you think Carmen San Diego? The Enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy. The only weapon that Lucifer has are Words. Words, that if you believe them, they will formulate into an action and then chaos reigns.
“You’ve lost your mind thinking it’s just rooted in someone’s thoughts”. Oh really? You ever had those thoughts that “you’re not good enough”, “no one likes you”, “you’re a pathetic human being”, “people don’t understand you”, “they don’t accept you”, “you’re never going to make them proud”, “you have to show that you’re better for them to like you”, "you have to get back at them to prove you're better", "your image is tarnished because of them", and on and on and on and on and on? What do you do with those thoughts? You either believe them or reject them. Then, if you believe certain lies long enough your actions reflect your belief about yourself. It doesn’t take a psychologist or philosopher to figure that out.
Evil is the belief that God is not Good and rooted in selfishness.
“You sound like a kumbaya dancing hippy”. Why thank you, but I don’t drink coffee.
I feel led to share all this, because I can see my old self in their profiles. I read a profile on one in college in a human-growth and development psychology class. It scared me stiff. It almost felt as if I was reading about myself, but of one who had zero support and carried out their thoughts. They eventually carried out horrendous acts of violence. I used to believe those thoughts and attacks of ones core. Let me be frank with you…USED TO is key.
What happened? Oh, I still get those thoughts that attack my core, but I rebuke them now. Through encounters over time, I was more impacted by a Love that doesn’t make any sense and can erase all fear, doubt, worry, anxiety, and self-hate. Key Point: Encountered. Thousands and millions of people have yet received a drop of hope and love from others in such a long time, that they’re hopeless.
How to stop massacres? Love people. “It can’t be that easy”. Oh yes it is.
“You have no idea what you’re talking about and forgetting so many other factors”.
I used to be depressed, have suicidal thoughts, said horrific things, lived in a life of mental torment and hopelessness, and filled with anger and rage and bitterness. And then Love showed up that didn’t make sense. It was ugly, in my face, constant, subtle, and consistent. Love never left. No matter how low and in some rotting hole I thought I was in, it brought me out of it. I didn’t deserve it on a human scale, but the FATHER says I am.
I know people will want to give me problems for sharing these things that they don't agree with. And IF you DO, just know that I don't hate you and you are Loved. People can keep trying to encounter “mental illness” with human reasoning, but it isn’t going to cure the problem. Love from the Father is. Loving each other even when it hurts. Knowing ones worth in Him leads to healing and Life.
“That’s all I got to say about that”.
