Or if you're hearing voices, go GET some medication. Please do not figure that somehow God is against certain types of pharmaceuticals just because your conservative Christian brothers and sisters said so.
Yes, you need to be careful what you put in your body. But when you're hearing voices, acting weird and no one wants to be around you, it's time to see the doctor, ok? I've read in other news stories that the fellow who did this was homeschooled in a deeply religious family. Hopefully that doesn't get TOO much play in other places... but I will say... what I hear from more conservative homeschool families (like this one SEEMS to be at first glance, and you really don't know based on a news story... I'm just talking about generalities here...) is that somehow it's wrong to take medicines prescribed by a psychiatrist. That children should never be medicated.
I'm going to differ with you all in love on this one. I think after a careful consideration of the risks versus the benefits, it's certainly OK to take medication that has been prescribed by a physician. Just because you pray over your children and are schooling them up in the Lord does NOT make you totally immune to mental illness any more than any other physical ailment.
This story is just so sad, but that aspect of it is something I felt needed to be talked about. God bless you all.
