Welcome

I'm available to sort out issues regarding BPD and Christianity.  I noticed your other post about devaluing  as well.

First:  Christianity and Christian tradition.  I'm the Baptist variety and try to stick to the more literal side of Biblical interpretation. 

Hmmm..interesting...launching right into literal Biblical stuff, I wonder why???

Proverbs 4:23  (NIV)

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

Now that's an interesting scripture to lead with...  Why not talk about forgiveness and sacrifice and kindness and how that can relate to BPD? 

That's a good question...  How would you answer it?

For the devaluing question in another thread.  Can you give an example?

I'll check back soon.

Best,

FF

From the Christian perspective, mental illness is seen as a departure from the divine.  In the past, and across cultures, people who were mentally ill had exorcisms.  Priests and shamans were consulted to drive out the mental illness by casting out the demons causing it.

In some cases, the demon driven out of the mentally ill person must be taken into the body of the priest/shaman and then destroyed.  This is done through love.

We know now that many mental illnesses have physiological and chemical causes, but what about the spiritual part of this?  Here is an article that might help.

https://hopes.stanford.edu/exorcism-and-mental-illness-across-different-cultures/

There is also the late psychiatrist Dr. Scott Peck who examined mental illness through the spiritual perspective and demonic possession.

This is interesting because my uBPD H, when he was drunk several months ago, said he was tormented by "demons" that caused him to abuse me.
