Just like some Christians get cancer or diabetes, some Christians live with mental illness.
Jesus doesn’t change your brain chemistry
Serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine, and other chemicals all help our brains to function the way they are supposed to. Sometimes, mental illness occurs when one or more of these chemicals become deficient. Sometimes, the other chemicals become over productive in response. The result is an off-balanced soup that can leave us in a panic attack, depressed, in psychosis or a host of other states. Bottomline, when the brain chemistry is off something bad is happening.
