Jon Rappoport links to Mike Adam's article, Psychiatry goes insane: Every human emotion now classified as a mental disorder in new psychiatric
Mike goes on to say, "This is called quack science
and circular reasoning, yet it's indicative of the entire industry of psychiatry which has become such a laughing stock among
scientific circles that even the science skeptics are starting to turn their backs in disgust.
Psychiatry is no more "scientific" than astrology or palm reading, yet
its practitioners call themselves "doctors" of psychiatry in order to try to make quackery sound credible."
Again, I should say, there is certainly a legitimate need for counseling
based on the truths of God.
I'm sorry to say that many pastors
are basically social workers in religious garb.
So it takes some
real effort to find counseling from God.
Proverbs 24:6 says, For
by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.
The whole book of Proverbs is dedicated to the wisdom from God. Psalms is great too.
Of course, the whole Bible has wisdom everywhere.
I use these Internet "helps" most: BibleGateway.com, BlueLetterBible.org, and
The King James Bible (KJB) is still, by far, the very best, but I use other bibles
for comparison, usually the ESV. See my several web pages on this subject.
Personal Bible reading and study is
by far the best way to wisdom and problem solving.
Acts 20:32 says, And now, brethren,
I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all
them which are sanctified.
I use the 1871 JFB commentary because it PRE-DATES the tsunami of academic
and moral garbage that flooded in with Darwinism or Evolution, which got rolling about 1870.
I do differ with this commentary
when they speak of "older, better" bible manuscripts.
I'm convinced the Traditional Bible Text underlying
the KJB and widespread by the Reformation is the very best, most reliable.
God has providentially brought this "Received
Text" down through history -- it is his text.
Again, regarding Bible study, I often do, just a standard Internet
search with a question that I have -- apart from the bible "helps."
Very often some person on the Web
has wrestled with this same issue and has posted his results on the Web. This is often the very best answer available.
