  • No, physical and mental health issues are not sinful conditions. They are simply maladies that need to be treated. Those conditions are afflictions, IMHO.
  • No, it just means you are at a spiritual warfare. If you endure, Satan and those negative thoughts he is putting in you will go away. Romans 5:3-4 "More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,"
  • No, and I can't answer the second part, but I have found the thoughts of a Christian with schizophrenic, see link:- https://livingwithschizophreniauk.org/schizophrenia-christian-perspective/ There are videos online regarding this as well. I do have a friend with bi-polar, she has delusions, she is fortunate to have a very loving husband and friends around her that care, this keeps her grounded, the only time she might get a bit manic is when she needs her medication adjusting, it hasn't stopped her believing in God, or living a good and fulfilling life, even though she acknowledges her delusions can often make her feel special and god like, she knows the difference once she is stable, she is a very kind and loving person, and I, as always am grateful to not have this condition, but have admiration for those who do, and live with it, I cannot begin to imagine how difficult that must be, it does affect family and friends, but to actually suffer it, must be so much harder.
  • I personally don't know of any Christian denomination that would consider those things a SIN. That doesn't mean that there is no such denomination, but if there is, it's almost certainly not any of the major denominations.
