Christian Depression CBT Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) is used to change peoples underlying beliefs, and it has been proven to work. The Word of God will, and has, changed many people’s underlying beliefs, over the centuries, and we have seen many people overcome depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and fear, by changing their underlying beliefs through the Word of God.
So, if people with depression change their underlying beliefs about themselves, their world and other people, it has been proven to help fight depression. According to Aaron Beck, the pioneer of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), depressed patients experience streams of negative thoughts that seemed to arise spontaneously.
These thoughts fall into three categories, negative thought about themselves, the world and/or the future.
Back in the 1960’s, Mr. Beck helped patients identify and evaluate these automatic thoughts, and he found that when patients changed their underlying beliefs about themselves, their world and other people, this resulted in long-lasting change.
(CBT) has been studied and proven effective in treating depression, and is widely used all over the world to this day.
So, if people with depression change their underlying beliefs about themselves, their world and other people, it has been proven to help fight depression.
This is why Christians in particular have distinct advantages in overcoming depression.
The Word of God will, and has, changed many people’s underlying beliefs, over the centuries, and we have seen many people overcome depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and fear,
Having their minds renewed (Romans 12:2) and having their underlying beliefs completely change into positive thoughts about themselves, the world, and people around them, by believing the promises in the Word of God.
Christians can overcome and be totally free from depression, bipolar, PTSD, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, panic attacks, fear, and other oppression’s, by trusting the Word of God.
These disorders have a spiritual base and if we can correct the spiritual problems, which we can, but only from the Word of God (the world can help us cope with these oppression’s, but only Jesus Christ can set us free), the truth will set us free, and who the Son sets free is free indeed.
The center and seat of the spiritual life, “the soul or mind and spirit , as it is the fountain and seat of the thoughts, emotions, passions, desires, appetites, affections, purposes, endeavors, belief system, conscience, perceptions and responses, and attitudes of the heart — the inner man of the heart.
