Scott,
You wrote,[...far too different..the conceptualization of deity...it falls into my belief...using psychotropic drugs to treat illness does not render one unfaithful to God...God works in many ways...the practice of medicine is one of them...]
We may have too different gods as you state here to continue to have dialog concerning that, but maybe not if more was disclosed.
The conceptualization of a god is not what I am intending to have discusssion here about, but for one interested as to what their god wants for them in relation to if taking psychotropic drugs as a medicine is or is not being unfaithful to their ggod or not. I could not post my views unless I was to know which God the member was referring to.
You write that in your belief system [...using psychotropic drugs to treat illness does not render one being unfaithful to {god}....].
That is your belief, but I am unsure as to if you are wanting to mean or not the folllowing. If you could post here as to if you do or do not want to mean the following, then I could have the opportunity to respond accordingly.
A. The {god} that you are referring to is not identified by you but is a what is known as pantheism.
B. The god that I am referring to is (omit)
C. The member that innitiated this thread could have a different god than you
D. The God that the Jews give service and worship to could be a different god than the god that you are referring to
E. The scriptures that the Jews use that they consider to be the Word of God is accepted by you as truth.
F. The member that innitiated this thread could find the answer to their question by going outside of the scriptures that the member uses, if the member uses scripture in their belief of their God, in their service and worship of God.
G. If God works in many ways, it would be prudent for one that accepts the scriptures that the Jews use as truth to them, in relation as to the way that God wants people to do in realtion to taking mind-altering drugs or not, and see if that God prescribes or not that those using mind-altering drugs will or will not be cast into the Lake of Fire according to those scriptures.
Lou
