This article articulates well the problem of “overdiagnosing” that is ALREADY occurring in our culture today. It’s already happening and this new DSM version will only make it worse than it is now!
It is an epidemic in our country because EVERYONE struggles with some sin issue and yet these labels excuse “sin” and call it “sickness.” Re-labeling sin does not change the truth that many “psychological issues” stem from sin. That’s the truth. No medication can permanently solve a sin problem. Only Christ does that!
Diagnosing sin and calling it sin will lead someone to the Cross because that’s the ONLY place that sins are forgiven!
-Mark (glad to see people are seeing the dangers in psychological labels that point people away from sin and our Savior of those sins!)
