Ed Bulkley is the founding pastor of Life Fellowship in Westminster, Colorado. He is also the President of the International Association of Biblical Counselors. He is the author of 3 books including, “Why Christian’s Can’t Trust Psychology”, “Only God Can Heal a Wounded Heart”, and “How Big is Your God?” He speaks extensively on Biblical counseling. For several years he hosted, “Return to the Word” a program addressing Biblical counseling issues.
Dr. Bulkley began by explaining that our world has moved away from Christ and is relying on the philosophies of this world as Paul describes in Colossians 2:8.
Since people are moving away from the simple truth that God’s word is more than enough to deal with any life issue when we obey him, many adults are on anti-depressants or anti-psychotics. Children as well are on drugs for maladies like Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. In fact, Vic noted that 90% of school shootings are linked to medications yet as Dr. Bulkley noted earlier in the discussion, drugs often anesthetize the conscience and the mind itself.
Sanity comes from obeying the Lord. Unfortunately the world has things turned around and is communicating today that religious practice can be a sign of deeper mental health issues. Find out why that’s false and discover why God’s word is mankind’s only true solution to issues of the heart when you review this edition of Crosstalk.
