Psychiatry offers false hope and no solutions:
Only Jesus brings real hope and peace!
gives people false hope and artificially positive expectations about their
life. Unrealistic future outlooks that promise rose gardens and green pastures.
Unfortunately you cannot make a fur coat from a pig skin lifestyle.
Psychiatry damages society and individuals
The mental health system causes harm to both individuals and
society as a whole.
- The arrogance of humanistic and chemical psychiatrists is
staggering. They set themselves up as the priests of a new world order
offering peace, hope and solutions to every day problems. Lets get one
- Christians make better councilors than psychiatrists.
Christians have been offering real hope peace and solutions to every day
problems based upon the Bible for 2000 years.
- The psychology industry has actually positioned itself as
an exact replacement of the Bible, church, priests and God. The problem
is, they do not deliver what they say they promise.
- "If these shocking presumptions were not an actual
description of the current state of the Psychology industry, they might be
laughable. But regrettably, these simplistic theories are widely applied
and widely accepted in a society that naively trusts psychologists to be
scientific and objective, optimistic and positive, and caring and

A. What psychiatrists and psychologists say:
- "The altruistic appearance of the services offered by
psychologists is dangerously misleading. People need to recognize that the
Psychology Industry thrives by promoting its services and expanding its
market, and that psychologists are selling the
public a bill of goods, making promises about happiness, health and safety
which they cannot fulfil. Psychologists are in the business of
posing as experts in living, claiming for themselves the ability to divine
right from wrong and cause from effect. The Psychology industry has
persuaded society that the "good life" is possible through the
guidance and assistance of psychologists." (Manufacturing Victims,
Dr. Tana Dineen, 2001, p 269)
- "They uphold what Thomas Wolfe refers to as "the
new alchemical dream." Whereas "the old alchemical dream was changing
base metal into gold... the new alchemical dream
is changing one's personality- remaking, remodeling, elevating and
polishing one's very self... observing, studying and doting on it."'
As the ancient alchemists were inducted into secret societies and magical
orders, those with a psychologically-prone personality are inducted into
the psychological society. Probably their most salient feature is
suggestibility. They are easily seduced by the rhetoric of psychology;
influenced by the subtle communication of experts and easily persuaded by
the directive guidance offered in psychotherapy. As Hans Strupp observed:
"all forms of psychotherapy employ suggestion... the patient's
suitability for psychotherapy is based on his potential openness to suggestion."
Dr. Tana Dineen, 2001, p 200)
- "Following the dissemination of Freudian theory, many
conditions that psychiatrists had not previously taken seriously or that
they had thought represented malingering [faking] were now dignified and
given the status of real ill-nesses. . . So the incorporation of Freudian
thought into medical practice increased the scope of psychiatry in a
number of ways. . . . The psychiatrist had received from Freud a new kind
of power, different from, and greater than, any he had wielded before. Psychiatrists and psychologists could now claim to
understand what was going on in the unconscious." (Jonas
Robitscher, 1920-1981, professor of psychiatry at Emory University in
Atlanta, The Powers of Psychiatry, p 35)
- "Being a real victim involves pain, injury and loss.
in contrast, becoming a fabricated victim entails none of these obvious
costs. Rather, it amounts to being reassured that the worst thing that can
happen has already occurred and that help is on the way. The Psychology industry sells the idea that once
identified as a victim, one can anticipate relief and healing and
"happily-ever-after" endings. One self-described abuse victim
writes: " ... Every fairy tale I ever read as a kid had a happy
ending, and I'll be damned if mine doesn't too".' (Manufacturing Victims,
Dr. Tana Dineen, 2001, p 67)
- "Recognition as a victim provides the starting point.
It identifies the client as the central character and the psychologist as
the guide in some heroic journey, the modern-day quest for innocence and
fulfillment. Becoming a fabricated victim isn't
about endings and losses so much as it is about beginnings and gains. What
all fabricated victims have in common is not some extraordinary experience
but rather the expectation of a future made brighter by virtue of victim
status. Fabricated victims are given permission to lead
psychologized lives, where guilt and shame are banished and
responsibilities are diminished. Meanwhile, those unidentified by the
Psychology industry must go on with their lives complete with
disappointments, failures, self-doubts, embarrassing moments, regrets,
sicknesses, debts, and even sins to be confessed and crimes for which to
be punished." (Manufacturing
Victims, Dr. Tana Dineen, 2001, p 68)
- "Remember Harris and Reynold's statement: "When
your teen comes home from a therapy session, you
may notice attitudinal changes. Your youngster will be developing greater self-esteem, improving confidence,
and becoming more assertive and expressive." Self-esteem has
become embellished to the point where lack of it is generally accepted as
one of the major causes of personal and social problems, which must be
directly addressed before people will change or social problems can be
solved. As one psychologist wrote: "every theory of mental health
considers a positive self-concept to be the cornerstone of a healthy

- "McCord identifies three factors that may contribute
to the harmful effects: encouraged
dependency, false optimism and externalized
responsibility; all of which are likely effects of many services promoted
now by the Psychology Industry." (Manufacturing Victims,
Dr. Tana Dineen, 2001, p 121)
B. Jesus offers what psychiatrists cannot:
- You have spent all this time wondering what is wrong with
you. Hours in therapy, many books read, but still no solutions.
- Why not start attending a Bible believing
church and discovering for yourself the true inner peace and
contentment that comes from Jesus Christ.
- The psychology industry tells you that you have no purpose
other than this earth. Jesus says you have a spirit that can live in
heavenly bliss forever.
- "psychologists are selling
the public a bill of goods, making promises about happiness, health and safety which they cannot fulfil.
Psychologists are in the business of posing as
experts in living, claiming for themselves the ability to divine right from wrong and cause from effect.
The Psychology industry has persuaded society that the "good life" is possible through the guidance and assistance of psychologists." (Manufacturing Victims,

- Do you really want to exchange the beauty and wisdom of
the creator for the personal opinions of some self serving, material
oriented psychiatrist who thinks man evolved by random chance processes
and rejects the existence of a creator? If you do, you get what you
deserve in life! Better to stick with God and the Bible!
- Have you read the Bible? Go buy a modern language Bible
and read it!
- Unlike psychiatrists and psychologists, God delivers on
the promises he makes!
