What is the widely agreed upon view of Christians with schizophrenia?

Member
I have been diagnosed with schizophrenia for about a year now. I'm prescribed pills for this disorder.
But some of the symptoms are still there even when sedated on "antipsychotic medications"... For a couple of years now I've been paranoid that the whole world is secretly watching me, either through my phone, or a secret microchip implant, or hidden software(bugs) in my house.
The people I get paranoid about watching me and stuff are everyone, not limited to even people with access to electronic devices.
I speculated this on and off again. Starting in August 2016 and I was diagnosed last December right before Christmas.
My symptoms include but are not limited to:

*Thinking people are watching me -started August 2016(that would make me famous)

* Me Thinking Im the antichrist- can't remember the exact time I started thinking this (but I don't match the Biblical description of the term)

* tactile hallucinations - Started feeling them late last year to early this year (tactile is me feeling something is touching me)

* me feeling like cars are talking to me when they make speeding sounds by passing by fast. (Weather its a hostile voice or it agrees with me)

*Me feeling like the sound airplanes make is someone talking to me(Weather its a hostile voice or it agrees with me)

* I hear little girl screams(since September 2019)

* Me feeling the imagery in my head is actually farting in my face (very recently)

*Me hearing a beeping sound that I hear every so often (it just popped up as I write this)

*Me thinking someone is plotting my death (the most recent date I heard is 2026)

That's all I could remember for the time being.

When I read up on websites about schizophrenia they show very relative traits I have with most schizophrenics... That is my base to believe that this is schizophrenia.

My question for people of my faith is this.

Who should I believe the thoughts in my head-- or the doctors?
Have any of you been stalking me?-
(I can't give my address for security purposes)

What is your personal opinion on schizophrenia?

&

How informed are you about the daily struggle who have a diagnosed disorder such as this?
How do you help them if you do know someone? (Such as me)

Thank you and have a blessed day! <3

Hi Reborn,

I'd say you're doing alright. The meds you've been given have alleviated probably the worst effects of your condition. It may be that if you spoke to your mental health practitioner they could try alternatives but then side effects and efficacy is something you'd have to discuss together.

When I say you're doing alright, I mean you're listing all the wonky thoughts and notions and put a big cross by them as irrational, which is good. You now need to find a way of mentally archiving and ignoring those thoughts and concentrate upon the every day.

Keep praising and praying to God and reading that Bible.

God bless you mate.

Oh my goodness. Honey- we all have so many of our own problems right now that we would not be stalking you if you were Elvis- ok? Not one person is secretly watching you except God- which is the only One who matters.
No you are NOT the antichrist. This person will hit the scene after the rapture of the church which could happen anytime. He will rise out of Pakistan and though he is alive presently- he has not come to power.
Imagery farting in your face? That sounds highly unpleasant- or hilarious I cannot tell which but if it makes sounds- I would laugh but that is just me. Have you been baptized? I would not listen to the voices in your head. They are not trustworthy because common sense and science of just life tells us car velocity does not have an audible voice so that is a lie. Airplane jetstream does not have an audible language so your brain is lying to you about that. One time about 20 years ago I was in a huge electronics store- I had been on a weekend bender- up for 3 days- and I could hear sex noises coming over the intercom and I could not believe no one else was reacting to it. It was very disturbing to me and hard for me to tell myself it was in my head. I went outside the store- could not hear it and went back in and heard it clear as day again!! I got some sleep and it went away but at the time it was very real TO ME. The brain is a master illusionist- that is for sure and the fact that we are forced to contend with the spirit world 24/7 is like a double whammy. I think that you are more susceptible to spiritual influence when you have mental illness because they know you are vulnerable in a sense to begin with. In your prayer sessions envision the blood of Christ pouring over you for protection and God bless you. I hope you find a good balance that works better for you because what you are describing is not normal honey. It's not. Talk to your doctor and tell him everything.

@sReborninChrist --- we've had conversation here and there on Forum. Since you Are on meds and still having the problems you Do have -- I'd get back with the Dr. -- let him know and hopefully he can adjust the dosage for you.

The thing is -- with mental disorders, no one can see what's going on in your mind. With a physical condition , it's obvious that there's a broken leg or head injury or whatever.

Christians / born again believers / are as succeptable to mental illness as any one else is.

So -- Do get back with the Dr. or maybe get a 2nd opinion,

What does your family think about it?

Its very disturbing. I have been baptized by a church in the past.. It was a church with quite a few people. It was in 2016 or 2017. Its called Legacy church..
I haven't been baptized into the current church I'm going to but would love to be if they allowed it I just need to ask them..

Your experience sounds crazy as well..im glad you don't hear those sounds anymore for your mental health.
I get very paranoid sometimes about my family thinking they are in on the stocking.. Which is paranoia when I think about it..

My meds have been changed back in January or February..
I tried working with my Dad when I was in them and I was lagging majorly and my dad was a little frustrated from my lagging because Im usually a excellent worker from my former work experience.
But medications seem to alter that.

I was supposed to get a call to set up an appointment yesterday but I didn't get a call according to my Dad.
He's supposed to be setting up my Dr appointments and stuff.
Thank you for your input ma'am!

What does your family think about it?
My family is supposed to be setting up my appointments for me. They are supposed to be receiving calls to set up my appointments. I have not received a call from them since March or April. I called the psychiatric center the other day and they said someone would call the number I provided-- (my dads number)-- to set up an appointment. But my Dad said he did not receive a call.

My family doesn't seem to worried about it.. my Mom always says she has work and she can't take care of everything for me.
My Dad has things he has to take care of like making sure the car is running.. All that stuff. I don't know if he cares either..
Part of me thinks he stopped caring after depression struck him in 2008..
He's had some moments where he made me feel cared for though so I can't say he's a bad dad.

What should I do about the doctors as well?


When I think about all the cars my dad buys, all the time my mom and dad spent at the casino, and the less and less "i love yous" i haven't been hearing I think I get paranoid they don't love me.
I think my Mom might have a excuse to not take care of me sometimes because she has been on oxygen for about 8 years.
Please pray for us all individually if you may.
With the medications I don't know how I'm gonna be able to take care of myself one day. I tried applying for social security disability but they were supposed to answer me back by last June but they haven't. I've heard it might be because of the corona pandemic..

@RebornInChrist -- Merry Christmas --- you mentioned Legacy Church -- my older daughter had been going to a Legacy Church in Georgetown some years ago.
It sounds like your family has problems as well. If possible, you need to be the one that Dr's and others call back To.

And, yes, this COVID stuff has changed a lot of things. Lots of people have been out sick -- but the government offices had been closed due to the mandated shut-downs.

Sounds like you'd hope that getting baptized is going to be a cure-all for you. I've researched about schizophrenia -- no one seems to know the cause -- except for an imbalance of chemicals in the brain. And there Are several chemicals that can get messed up and various meds Can be tried to rebalance your brain chemistry.

Your Mom and Dad do have problems of their own. Sounds like it Would be in your best interest to have someone outside of family do the Dr.'s appointments and the meds. Maybe contact the church you go to. Life Can get to feeling over-whelming at times. And a mental illness is not something that can be seen. And they are Trying to live Their lives. And sometimes people Don't take mental illness very seriously.

Back when my oldest daughter was having psychiatric problems -- my late husband went to all her appointments with her and regulated her meds and she was living next door to us for a while on our property. At one point she was diagnosed as being bi-polar. She had to be taking meds at particular times and with food. When she started doing that, she did better.

And getting social security benefits Can be difficult to get in the Best of circumstances -- but at least you're trying.

Do you know what your Mom's condition is that requires the extra oxygen? I've heard about that on TV. Possibly COPD?

And it sounds like you Do need to be around people who understand your conditions and take them seriously.

You are so welcome. You can message me private just to chat and stuff so that the messages aren't so public. Not that I am hiding anything but sometimes I am more comfortable talking candidly one on one- just more personal. Life is about sharing our experiences and learning from other people's story so we can all figure this out and get through it together. No one should ever have to feel like they are facing it alone. It is scary and hard enough as it is! One time at about 3 am I heard a helicopter circling above my house. It was louder and louder and I looked out the back window and I could see the spotlight in the alley behind my house and I heard " This is the Maricopa County Sheriff's office! Get on the ground!" I got scared and got on the ground, then I was like wait! That's for someone else! Then I closed my blinds and ran and locked my doors. Found out a year later that what I experienced may have been a symptom of drug induced psychosis. I don't know if it really happened or not! I think it did- but doubting your own memory is a difficult pill to swallow. Like to admit to yourself that you do not know if it was all in your head is disturbing. How can you trust anyone else If you can't even trust what your own head is telling you? The equipment has to work properly to navigate this life effectively! We cannot change the world if our computer keeps glitching out! Do not measure your success by worldly men's standards because they will lead you to hell. True success is being found blameless before God and being worthy enough for Gods grace and being given the gift of salvation into paradise. Then and only then have you truly made it.

What is your personal opinion on schizophrenia?

&

How informed are you about the daily struggle who have a diagnosed disorder such as this?
How do you help them if you do know someone? (Such as me)
Ok, you asked for a "personal opinion," so...

Firstly, a disclaimer: The transnational drug corporations are among "the rich men of the earth," the fantastically wealthy dynastic banking families who control the world economic (for a season). They have influence in all spheres, including online forums. Any push against their status quo usually results in warnings, bannings and sometimes even visitations for those with more vocal platforms...

Secondly, I have a prophetic calling on my life and I am involved in what the mainstream churches deny i.e. the deliverance ministry.

Thirdly, I am paramedically trained.

Fourthly, I have dealt with the powerful spirit of pharmakeia, of which the rich men of the earth would not repent:

"Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries (pharmakeia), nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts." (Rev. 9:11)

sorceries = the use or the administering of drugs; poisoning; sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it.

Fifthly, whatever authority you submit to, is the authority to which you will render. Sadly, the vast majority simply acquiesce to the enemy because no one has taught them any differently. They simply do not know of any other way. "My parents and grandparents got vaccinated, and they seem ok, so I'll just follow their actions." "I'm feeling sick/tired/sore/stressed, so I'll just accept their gnostic dia-gnosis and take their drugs."

NO ONE has first dropped to their knees, sought the Lord, and tried i.e. TESTED the spirits, to see if they are being lead around by God, or by Satan's boys, because the power of the lie is strong and herd mentality reigns. They simply trust the worldly authority because, after all, everyone else does and "I don't want to be in the minority here."

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." (1 John 4:1)

Beware, as there is a form of obedience that leads to death:

"Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?" (Rom. 6:16)

The situation is not unlike visiting a fortune teller. Because you have willfully submitted to that authority, you have implicitly agreed that such person (e.g. MD, medical deity) has the right to speak over your life. Your symptoms match one or more of those from an ever-increasing list of symptoms in one of his required books. Jesus Christ or God is never mentioned or consulted, the cause is never investigated. The MD merely treats "symptoms;" it's never about any cure. Rather, you're turned into a manageable patient, a ca$h cow, who remains "on the line" for life.

Here's the bugaboo: When we choose self-will over God's will, Satan is granted legal right, legal access, to us. And God is a gentlemen; he forces no one. We are left to deal with the consequences of our decisions, whether they be God's will or our own self-will.

Virtually all of the effects from taking the drug (as you listed in your posts), are the EXACT SAME SYMPTOMS that the drug itself causes. Don't believe me? READ THE PRODUCT INSERT for yourself.

You have opened several doors that need closing, thus you need deliverance and not worldly mollycoddling.

Confess, repent, forgive, and thus come into obedience to Christ, then appropriate his authority as a believer to be delivered from the demons that are dogging you.

PM me if you want to learn more.

@backNforth -- I grew up around the medical field -- it sounds like you have no use for the medical world or for medications that can / are prescribed for various problems. Any medications are required to list any possible side-affects to that given medication Because people are - generally speaking - 'sue happy'. And, lots of times the side-affects sound worse than the illness.

Part of deliverance ministries is casting out demons / demonic activity. Born again believers Can't be demon possessed because they have the Holy Spirit residing in them and He won't leave us. God's Word tell us to resist the devil and he will flee from us -- Spiritual warfare is found in Ephesians 6 -- the Armor of God.

There Are drugs that Can be used to help with brain disorders -- chemical inbalances. My older daughter developed problems being bi-polar -- the psychiatrist was very helpful as well as the medications prescribed. We were the ones taking her to and from and monitoring her meds.

And, yes, vaccinations from our childhood were very good and needed. Present-day COVID is another completely different situation. But it's definitely Not the blind leading the blind and being indoctrinated by evil sources.

There Have been people who've resisted the medical field and relied strictly on prayer to cure them. And, yes, God Is the one we are to go to with all our problems. But there have been people who've been persuaded to quit their insulin or whatever their doctor has prescribed and 'pray it through' and end up dying because their bodies Did Need the insulin or whatever medications their bodies did need.

You Do realize that in the Bible -- Luke was a physician.

The medical world is Not 'out to get ya' -- there are many good Christian doctors -- and we do know our own bodies.

...it sounds like you have no use for the medical world or for medications that can / are prescribed for various problems.
You've missed the gist.

Any medications are required to list any possible side-affects to that given medication Because people are - generally speaking - 'sue happy'.
Of course, it's all about the money. Covetous men shall make merchandise of you (2 Pet. 2:3).

And, lots of times the side-affects sound worse than the illness.
That's because they ARE worse. Doubtless, the drug peddlers would rather not be legally required to cop to the side-effects as listed in the drug inserts.

Born again believers Can't be demon possessed because they have the Holy Spirit residing in them and He won't leave us.
That's not the point. It's time to wake up and smell the coffee. The point is, people in bondage make poor witnesses.

God's Word tell us to resist the devil and he will flee from us...
Kinda hard to "resist the devil" when he's in your head telling you:

-people are watching me

-Me Thinking Im the antichrist-

-tactile hallucinations -

-cars are talking to me

-the sound airplanes make is someone talking to me

-I hear little girl screams

-Me feeling the... farting in my face

-Me hearing a beeping sound

-Me thinking someone is plotting my death.

There Are drugs that Can be used to help with brain disorders -- chemical inbalances.
The "chemical imbalances" theory is another lie. Scientists in the late 1950s first proposed the idea that mental health conditions are caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. The theory also transformed the pharmaceutical companies. In spite of the enormous amount of money and time that has been spent in the quest to confirm the chemical imbalance theory, direct proof has never materialized. What is the evidence that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance? Hint: there isn't any.

My older daughter developed problems being bi-polar -- the psychiatrist was very helpful as well as the medications prescribed. We were the ones taking her to and from and monitoring her meds.
The joy is gone; there is no joy; the joy has been stolen.

And, yes, vaccinations from our childhood were very good and needed. Present-day COVID is another completely different situation. But it's definitely Not the blind leading the blind and being indoctrinated by evil sources.
...more baseless worldly rhetoric.

There Have been people who've resisted the medical field and relied strictly on prayer to cure them. And, yes, God Is the one we are to go to with all our problems. But there have been people who've been persuaded to quit their insulin or whatever their doctor has prescribed and 'pray it through' and end up dying because their bodies Did Need the insulin or whatever medications their bodies did need.
It's called an "addiction" -- by design.

You Do realize that in the Bible -- Luke was a physician.
Luke was the real deal; he was not a dope dispenser. And unlike today's medical deities, he repented often and kept his accounts with God short.

Can you tell me what church I should go to?
Can you tell the people at that church to treat me as a family treats the child. Can you also tell me what do I do about the voices I hear all day they don't want to go away even though I said to leave me alone in Jesus's name.
I don't like drugs they hurt.
What do I do brother?
I have been wronged at every job it seems... Please pray in Jesus name that all forces of evil will cease and will be unable to harm me and that they will fear the name of Jesus when I say it.
I love the Lord and I've noticed in Matthew chapter 7 when Jesus said to those who did miracles and all that it says in his name he will reply

We cannot change the world if our computer keeps glitching out! Do not measure your success by worldly men's standards because they will lead you to hell. True success is being found blameless before God and being worthy enough for Gods grace and being given the gift of salvation into paradise. Then and only then have you truly made it.
What do you believe the true church to attend is?
I was wondering because today I felt a little upset after I attended one local church I don't know what to do or where to go..
Al I know is JESUS is the answer. Part of me thinks I need a church that accepts anybody but I am thinking conservative when it comes to how people act regarding personal decisions.
Because if someone knows they are committing a sin and wants to take their sin to the church that to me is something I would not want to do it seems immorally and wrong.

But I do need help with my schizophrenia.. It sucks and i don't know how long it will last its been a problem for a long time!
Please pray that the Lord will help me overcome it in Jesus name!
I would love to talk...

How can I message you.?

@RebornInChrist -- Merry Christmas --- you mentioned Legacy Church -- my older daughter had been going to a Legacy Church in Georgetown some years ago.
It sounds like your family has problems as well. If possible, you need to be the one that Dr's and others call back To.

And, yes, this COVID stuff has changed a lot of things. Lots of people have been out sick -- but the government offices had been closed due to the mandated shut-downs.

Sounds like you'd hope that getting baptized is going to be a cure-all for you. I've researched about schizophrenia -- no one seems to know the cause -- except for an imbalance of chemicals in the brain. And there Are several chemicals that can get messed up and various meds Can be tried to rebalance your brain chemistry.

Your Mom and Dad do have problems of their own. Sounds like it Would be in your best interest to have someone outside of family do the Dr.'s appointments and the meds. Maybe contact the church you go to. Life Can get to feeling over-whelming at times. And a mental illness is not something that can be seen. And they are Trying to live Their lives. And sometimes people Don't take mental illness very seriously.

Back when my oldest daughter was having psychiatric problems -- my late husband went to all her appointments with her and regulated her meds and she was living next door to us for a while on our property. At one point she was diagnosed as being bi-polar. She had to be taking meds at particular times and with food. When she started doing that, she did better.

And getting social security benefits Can be difficult to get in the Best of circumstances -- but at least you're trying.

Do you know what your Mom's condition is that requires the extra oxygen? I've heard about that on TV. Possibly COPD?

And it sounds like you Do need to be around people who understand your conditions and take them seriously.
I would love to have someone who cares about me do the phone calls and stuff.
I don't know who because I struggle to find those who are actually loving. I will not trust an unbeliever because the are unbelievable and I only trust God and those born by the Holy spirit.
I just don't know schizophrenia could be creating an illusion that people don't care about me.. Or it could be the truth because Jesus the Lord said that the love of many will grow cold in the last days..
That's sad but I felt really sad today after church...
I have no one to give me advise.. Its like I have to mix my meds or something myself.. Life is sad to me..
My mom and dad have grown cold...
I need to find the right church...
I thought very evil thoughts today..
I'd love to message you too...

@RebornInChrist -- I've been researching your shhizophrenia -- it's complicated -- I'm praying that you'll be able to connect with someone in a good Bible-teaching church who can help you -- your bio says you're from Albuquerque -- my thought is that since you have access to a computer or you wouldn't on Forum. You have a search engine -- Google -- is what I use. Type in 'Baptist churches in Albuquerque' and find out what's listed and a contact number for a church and find the pastors' number '. A Scripture passage for you to look at -- Philippians 4:6,7, and 8. Read those.

Ask one of the moderators to give you instructions for getting to the "Conversation" area of the Forum. And then type in the name of whoever you want to talk to.

I feel that the people I live with are being mean. The one formerly known as my dad has been really mad about something I'm bot aware of all day.. I hear sounds in the form of voices...they are sometimes very intense... I've prayed that the Lord will protect me from being harmed.
I don't know what I should do.. My Mom doesn't seem completely evil ...or not quite yet... Sometimes I feel like I'm microchipped or that the person formerly known as my dad is involved in freemasonry or some type of practice contrary to Christian life...
I'm paranoid.
But as big as changes as the man formally known as my dad has went through these last years I cannot tell if or when he will turn on me or reveal his true colors,..
Please you may message me privately because I don't know how.. Or we can just chat here..

Can you tell me what church I should go to?
Can you tell the people at that church to treat me as a family treats the child. Can you also tell me what do I do about the voices I hear all day they don't want to go away even though I said to leave me alone in Jesus's name.
I don't like drugs they hurt.
What do I do brother?
I have been wronged at every job it seems... Please pray in Jesus name that all forces of evil will cease and will be unable to harm me and that they will fear the name of Jesus when I say it.
I love the Lord and I've noticed in Matthew chapter 7 when Jesus said to those who did miracles and all that it says in his name he will reply

Well just remember that everyone at every church you could possibly choose has sinned so

Well take comfort in knowing every person in every church has sinned and most are not there because they want to sin on purpose. We all have regrets- Even the Lord Himself has had regret. We all are just trying to get to the same place facing the same hater that wants us to fail. Are we all hated equally? Of course not. The more you love God the more the devil hates you and the harder he will try to ensnare you in his lies and traps. The right church to attend? I do not know. I would say meet with the Pastor one on one and ask him these questions.
1. How does a person find Salvation?
2. What are the paths to heaven?
3. What is your church doing to prepare for the Rapture?
4. Who is God?
See what his answers are and for number 2, if the Pastor is like Joel Osteen and replies " there are many different paths to get to heaven." Shake his hand, say " thank you." And leave! That is the wrong answer!! To message me, click my name or pic and then the envelope upper right corner.
I know what you mean..I was looking for a church to get baptized at, had spoken to the Pastor, set up the baptism, went to the service, halfway through people were on the ground talking in tongues and the people started marching up and down the aisles carrying 3 large flags with (1) Church Logo, (2) AZ State flag (3) blue flag with a big snake on it. I said " Oh I don't think so." And I got up, left and never looked back! Did it somewhere else!

@DieAmartyr -- you were wise to leave that particular church.

To answer your questions myself

Finding salvation -- 1 Corinthians 15;1-4 -- believe that Jesus Christ / the Son of God / died on the cross, was buried and rose again bodily on the 3rd day. -- and Romans 10:9-10 we believe in our heart and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord. -- we thank God for His gift of salvation that is possible only through Jesus Christ and that we Do need Him as our Savior. Because nothing 'we' can do will earn our salvation for us. The blood of Jesus Christ that He shed for us and His death, burial and bodily resurrection are all that is needed for our personal salvation. Ephesians 2:8-9.

There is only one path to heaven. Jesus Christ tells us in John 14:6 "I am the way the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father, but by Me."

A church is made up of people -- all Anyone can do to prepare For the rapture -- is make sure of their own personal salvation -- be ready Now. Jesus Christ will come back for all born again believers -- meeting 'us' in the air -- to be with Him forever -- but only God the Father knows When that will take place. But a person could die of cancer, or a heart attack or stroke or from old-age -- or being in a vehicular accident , etc, etc, at any time , Also. And a person Can be sharing the Gospel of salvation with all who are willing to listen. A person doesn't need to be a 'Bible-thumper' but simply be willing To share as an opportunity presents itself.

As to Who is God -- He is The creator of all this world. He Wants to be our heavenly Father. He's the 1st part of the trinity // God the Father, Jesus Christ His Son and the Holy Spirit.
He's omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient. /// it's a huge subject. But, we did not evolve. He created everything just as Genesis says He did. In 6 / 24hr days.

The purpose Of baptism is to Show others what has already happened in your heart. That you've already accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior and want to live a Christ-like life. That because of the Holy Spirit's indwelling 'us' , we are able to be a 'new creature' In Christ.

I talk to the pastor every week that I'm there pretty much...he's not a bad guy in my opinion... I just don't know what to do about my paranoia that schizophrenia makes me prone too...
I don't know if I should trust medications that make it a little uncomfortable while I'm on them...
But its also very very uncomfortable when I'm off them...
When I'm off them i don't know if my perception is completely off or something...

I'm glad you realized that the church with the flags is not right...

Im not a pastor but the answers I would hope to get are:
Salvation is only found in Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the pathway to heaven!
Jesus Christ is our God who believe in him.
We are alive in Christ not dead to sin. Our God is the God of the living, not the dead.

Im gonna message you about something personal i need to ask for me..
