Amazon|Depression and Post-Traumatic Growth

     

When it comes to the definition of a good person, most people think of boundless forgiveness, obligatory tolerance and charity, but countless people have no idea about the 7 heavenly virtues and 7 deadly sins. The fact is that most people underestimate the sins of pride, prejudice, anger, habitual laziness, apathy and jealousy. It’s something unusual but common that innumerable persons choose a certain religion without much understanding.

 

Most people perceive their mistake will be forgiven if they confess, which can be deadly wrong. Everything we do has consequences.  In Christianity, there are forgivable and “unforgivable sins.” Satan was once God’s favorite angel. As angels make mistakes, hey are punished by God too. No exemption. God is righteous. He executes justice by rewarding the good deeds and condemn the sins.

 

God knows the motives of our prayers. If we ask anything according to Gods will, God will respond. (John 5: 14, ESV) You ask and not receive, because you ask with wrong motives (James 4: 3). 

 

God abhors wickedness. Thus, God’s punishment demonstrates God’s wrath and God’s justice. Much like the leading character Truman Burbank in the film “The Truman Show,” we are living under God’s supervision. God is watching our every move. According to the Bible, God reads our minds and every spoken word will be judged by God. And everything we have done for the lifetime will be recorded in a book and God will evaluate our performance on Judgment Day. The Judgment Day will determine whether us lived a life of righteousness. The Final Judgment is the retribution time. Receive the rewards or pay the debts. Face what you deserve.

 

According to the Bible, a blessed life is not an easy life without any challenges. As to the occurrence of an unexpected traumatic event, would you identify it a life challenge or life trouble or would you question God’s justice? Countless people feel they are badly rewarded by God. Most people stigmatize their life troubles because they know nothing about “God’s discipline” (Hebrews 12:11). According to the Bible, God only disciplines those He loves. In a sense, we betray God’s love and benevolence if we stigmatize life challenges. 

 

What about the great figures in history? What about the life of Mater Teresia, Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II, or Albert Einstein? Evidently, God does not tend to make anyone’s life perfect. It’s just some people hide their tears from you.

 

There are too many temptations. Its never easy to live a life fully abide by the creeds laid out in the Bible. we might commit sins that we do not even aware of, such as anger, pride, gluttony and apathy. Significantly, pride is recognized as a capital sin in the Bible. Generally, pride and social prejudice go hand in hand. As to those who love to gossip others, be aware of your words.

 

Without Gods discipline, we might be allured by unduly desires, excessive greed or lust. The positive value of hard times is assured, because we only have the chance to witness unconditional love and God’s miracles in the tough times. And sufferings teach us to be truly humble and compassionate to others pain.

 

In Hebrews 13:5, it says “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have.” Material enjoyment are common temptations. According to the Bible, “The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs” (1 Timothy 6:10:). That fully explains why the Bible says, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God” (NRSV, Mark 10:23-27). As pointed in the Bible, those who have been “given much, much will be demanded” (Luke 12; 47–48). Keep going the right things and God will still supply your needs and guard your life.

 

The omniscience of God is assured. God is all-knowing and God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil (Ecclesiastes 12:14).

 

Knowing the Word and will of God isn’t enough, we have to act upon the conviction. As we become cynical of the world, we push away from God’s grace. A hardened embittered impenitent heart leads us away from God’s blessing.

 

Love covers over a multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4: 7-8) Pray for each other (James 5:16). “Get rid of all bitterness,” including but not limited to anger, and “every form of malice (Ephesians 4:31-32).

Countless people tend to stigmatize life troubles because they never heard about “God’s discipline” in the Bible (Hebrews 12:11). The Bible makes it clear that God ’s discipline and God’s love are intertwined, which fully explains the strong connection between God’s discipline and post-traumatic growth. As we stigmatize life challenges, we betray God’s love and benevolence. Thus, when our life track differs from our original plan, don’t be scared. For sure, there’s a distinct unequivocal difference between God’s discipline and God’s punishment. As to the occurrence of an unexpected traumatic event, would you take it for granted, or would you question God’s justice? Most people experience the moments of wavering faith. People have doubts in their hearts. With only a smattering of bible understanding, wavering faith is common among Christians, especially in the hard times. This book offers clear-cut answers to people’s questions and doubts about God’s justice, God’s wrath (God’s anger), Final Judgment (Judgment Day, Last Judgment), the images of heaven and God’s promise of eternal life, God’s blessing (peace, safety and health) and God’s discipline. According to the Bible, a blessed life is not an easy life without any life troubles, worries and challenges. What about the great figures in history? What about the life of Mater Teresia, Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II, or Albert Einstein? Evidently, God does not tend to make anyone’s life perfect. It’s just some people hide their tears from you. Going through the hard times gives us the chance to witness unconditional love and sufferings teach us to be truly humble and compassionate to others’ pain. When it comes to the definition of a good person, most people think of boundless forgiveness, obligatory tolerance and charity, but countless people have no idea about the 7 heavenly virtues and 7 deadly sins. The fact is that most people underestimate the sins of pride, prejudice, anger, habitual laziness, apathy and jealousy. God knows the motives of our prayers. I always believe that everyone is having the life as the leading character Truman Burbank in the film “The Truman Show.” Because we are living under the camera of God. There’s a famous Chinese saying: God is watching our every move, which means our daily lives are under the supervision of God. According to the Bible, God reads our minds and every spoken word will be judged by God.

Do not stigmatize life challenges. Because the Bible mentions that God only disciplines those He loves. It takes time to figure out the blessings in life. According to the Bible, those who have been “given much, much will be demanded” (Luke 12; 47–48). 手機板建議「利用目錄或關鍵字搜尋主題」或留言發問。初衷是成立一個兼具療癒性及知識性的平台,囊括中英文稿。支持網站最好的方式,是幫忙把文章分享出去。世界太多聲音,太容易迷失,所以互相督促!學問和人際關係,都最怕道聽塗說和一知半解。 理財,從照顧好自己的健康開始!中醫「肝開竅於目、心開竅於舌、脾開竅於唇、肺開竅於鼻、腎開竅於耳」。研究證實好壞情緒會關鍵性決定身體的發炎指數和血糖指數!容易緊繃焦慮不安或睡不好,多補充維生素B和鈣的食物(補給品不建議天天吃,建議攝取天然的食物)。術前或牙科看診前多補充鈣,因為鈣是解痛劑。術後或身體發炎期間或痘痘,多補充E,主修復,可以大大降低留疤機率! 根據營養學,害喜是因為缺乏B6,而攝取含維生素E的食物可避免baby有黃疸的情況。生產前多補充鈣質和維生素D的食物可以有效降低生產的疼痛。 母體缺乏維生素E,是造成早產的常見主因之一。攝取充足維生素E,可望終止慣性流產。 據國外研究,治療阿茲海默症(失智症),戒糖痊癒機率高!胃食道逆流,建議選擇鹼性飲食,忌過食!便秘,建議攝取水溶性纖維的蔬菜!還有,身體缺少油脂,便缺少潤滑劑,無法順利排便。肩頸痛、背痛建議按壓手背指間的穴道,效果立見!脖子控管甲狀腺和自律神經,甲狀腺控管體溫,所以手腳冰冷或自律神經失調或久坐族群,都應該經常按壓手背食指和中指之間的穴道,非常有效。嘉義,不容錯過的景點《鰲鼓濕地》、《幸福山丘》、《傲慢烘培坊》。醫學書籍推薦《求醫不如求己》及《向癒》。盼你我都能抵達想去的地方,想著別人的好,卻是最先溫暖了自己。最近很想找好喝的擂茶。合作邀約jpsiawase@gmail.com
