Depression, Anxiety, and the Child of God is a book that has been long overdue. It is a book that takes the taboo out of being a Christian and suffering with emotional issues. All throughout the Bible, we see accounts of great people of God being afraid, depressed, panicking, even thinking suicidal thoughts. If the Bible speaks about these issues, why don’t we? Far too long the church has been silent and lacking the education to deal with these things. Today is a brave new world with new challenges that pastors and clergy from days gone by never had to deal with–the dismantling of the family unit, pornography, a sexually permissive, anti-Biblical, and anti-moral society. The church has lost all of its significance and effectiveness. The church has no clout or relevance today, letting the important ones fall to the wayside. We are a laughingstock to the world today, known only by our hatred of certain select peoples and pet peeve sins. Why aren’t we known for Christ’s love, his redemption available to all, and Christ’s high standard of moral excellence? No, we have become like the world, and with it we have acquired the world’s problems, including depression and anxiety. This devotional and book set (sold separately) attempts to turn all of that on its side just as Christ turned this world upside down. We are due for a flip, and Pastor Scott hope to make that flip back to true Christianity through his life’s work put into this project.
