Thus, we use nature to heal as we can also use it to harm. The manufacture of medications to be used in the practice of physicians is man's attempt to heal using the resources that God has provided.

Friends,
It is written here,[...It then becomes a matter of faith to decide upon what the Mind of God has chosen for us...].
The original question was about if taking medicines for mental health reasons was being unfaithful to God. This brought up the question as to {which God}, and what constituted a medicine.
So again, the statement in question here would depend upon which God is in question, and what is or is not a medicine.
Now the God that is represented in the scriptures that the Jews use could offer what the mind of that God reveals as to the questions at hand here according to what is written in those scriptures. There was the question as to if or if not those taking mind-altering drugs would be cast into the Lake of Fire or not according to those scriptures. The mind of that God is revaled in a way in those scriptures as it is written in the book called Isaiah in the 55th chapter the 8th verse,[...For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways...].
Lou
