Paul, Jesus, Disciples – Mentally Ill says Church of England

This is not a joke. News reports are indicating that the Church of England intends to embark on a new “Mental Health” campaign and trust me when I say they’ve gone all out, suggesting that Paul, Jesus and the disciples were all to some extent, mentally ill persons. This isn’t a Muslim saying this, or an Atheist, but the Church of England, and the best news is that they’ve even included Biblical justification:

A SUGGESTED sermon produced by the Church of England for clerics attempting to tackle the stigma of mental health pulls no punches.

Written by the Rev Eva McIntyre on behalf of the Church’s Archbishops’ Council and the Time to Change mental health campaign, it suggests John the Baptist, St Paul, St Francis and other figures from the Bible may all have been mentally ill.It even asks followers to consider accusations made in the New Testament that Jesus “had lost his mind”.

It reads: “Many of the people we read about in Bible stories might today be considered as having mental health issues.

“For example, ‘Would Jesus’ family maybe on occasion have said, ‘Cousin John is a bit odd, bless him!’ when John the Baptist took to his eccentric style of life?

“It has long been thought that King Saul, in the books of Samuel, was displaying mood swings that suggest he had bi-polar disorder and some think that St Paul’s Damascus Road experience was the result of some sort of breakdown or psychotic episode.

“Even Jesus was not immune to accusations about his mental health: there is a story in the gospel that tells of his mother and siblings attempting to take him home because they are afraid that he has lost his mind.”Many of the stories of the Saints, too, have led people to discuss their mental health. “For example was St Francis suffering from a mental health title?”

Acknowledging how shocking these ideas might be, Ms McIntyre, a member of the General Synod, adds: “Some may find these suggestions disturbing or offensive even.

“Perhaps we need to ask why it would be so terrible to think that some of our most inspirational forebears might have experienced mental health illness. – Source.

I’ve always hinted/ strongly implied, that St. Paul was infact, mentally ill, and the Jesus that the Bible portrays also seems to indicate a mentally unstable character. You can read my articles here and here on this issue. I can understand if a non-Christian held these views, but the very fact that Christians are beginning to point out, what Muslims, Atheists and Jews have been saying for centuries, make this a stark and bold revelation, indicating the extent to which learned Christians are realising the falsehood of their own faith.
wa Allaahu Alam,
and God knows best.

  • one day before your’re going to get murdered you tell your FEARFUL, UNFAITHFUL AND UNCOMPREHENDING deciples that they should make a ritual out of your blood and flesh in your rememberance .it is no wonder that mary in marks account thought that the diety she gave birth to had gone mad. do you drink cow and gate milk to remember cot death of a baby? do you dress up as fire man sam to remember how fire man gave up his life to save children from a burning hospital?

    “In ancient times, think of the Attis cult which centered upon the suicide
    of its savior who castrated himself and bled to death. Street corner
    celebrations of such rites invariably attracted bystanders, even
    initially hostile ones, swept up in the music and chanting, to
    castrate themselves and join the sect on the spot! “
