“Praying, reading the Bible, and having a strong Christian faith can have a positive impact on both mental and physical health, according to a new report.
According to the “Faith and Wellness: Evangelical Insights on Healing and Physicians” report, released by Grey Matter Research and Infinity Concepts, 99% of evangelical Protestants agree that praying, reading the Bible, and having a strong Christian faith all contribute to positive mental health.”
If only evangelicals devoted their time praying for world peace and brotherly love, and reading the Bible as a devotional.
But the sad reality is that too many evangelicals waste their time reading about conspiracy theories, Christian nationalism and racist propaganda on the darkest corners of the Internet.
And when they do read the Bible it’s not to seek spiritual enlightenment, but to look for verses that they can weaponize against gays and lesbians, immigrants and pro-choice advocates.
Evangelicals don’t pray for global peace, unity and harmony, instead they pray that their God will smite liberals, the LGBT community and everyone who doesn’t subscribe to their Neanderthal beliefs.
That’s why there is no mental wellness in the evangelical movement. How can you be at peace with yourself when you hate everyone who isn’t part of your religious cult?
Having a strong faith isn’t a positive when it inspires vindictiveness, intolerance and inhumanity.
Almost 100 percent of the general population believes that evangelicals are an impediment to universal healthy mental and physical health. The world would be a better place without their divisive rhetoric and evil behavior.
