I wish to reply to K. Conder’s letter that suggests the church has a lot to answer for regarding mental health issues.
It is obvious the writer has little knowledge of the true value of the church. People give money willingly to help others in need, and we also worship a true and living God who changes people’s lives for the better.
The church does not create mental health issues. They are brought about through the pressures of society and people’s circumstances in a world that has largely chosen to leave God out. He is a God of love, so don’t put the blame where it does not belong.
