Mental Health and the Christian
Mental Health and the Christian takes a look at the brain, mind, and soul as interchangeable entities and the effects of external and internal stimuli on homeostatic functions. Human beings are consumers. We consume through three gates: eyes, ears, and mouth. How everything we ingest affects what genes are turned on and off in the mind and body is called epigenetics. Achieving homeostasis or balance is the ultimate goal. For Christians, the health, growth, and development of the spirit man calls for a healthy thought process together with a diet beneficial to achieving homeostasis in our lifestyle. This book attempts to broach the subject by removing some of the misconceptions about mental health as it pertains to the lifestyle of Christians, eliminating some of the taboos and erasing the shame. This is nothing more than a rudimentary tool to be used to open dialogue about how we as Christians perceive mental health, thereby equipping us to approach and understand ministering to those among us who may be suffering in secret. The aim is to bring them out of the shadows and into the light, delivering them.
