Being Religious or Spiritual Is Linked With Getting More Depressed

Posted: 16/09/2013

Previously studies appeared to show that religious and spiritual beliefs may be protective for depression, and were associated with better well-being. It was a widely held view amongst psychiatrists (who are not, as a group, particularly religious) that religion and spirituality protected your mood from the vicissitudes of life's misfortunes.

But now, a very large study, which followed up people for a year, has found there is an opposite relationship between religious belief and depression. Religion, and even more, spirituality not tied to formal religion, appears to be unhelpful in terms of protecting you from low mood, and could even be linked with more depression.

A key finding of the study, conducted in several different counties, is that a spiritual life view predisposed to major depression, especially significantly in the UK, where spiritual participants were nearly three times more likely to experience an episode of depression than the secular group.

Easier? It's way easier to be a part of the wickedness of the world. But staying true to Jesus Christ and working really hard to avoid doing things that are wrong takes a huge amount of discipline. Stop acting like religious people are taking the easy way out because most of us finds it really hard to avoid living in sin. It's hard bro, it's hard.

In my opinion, it's YOU who's taking the easy way out. You walk around with no belief, spending your entire life thinking you can do as you please without any repercussions. You're probably one of those guys who hates when religious people "shove their belief down your throat", but yet here you are in a thread like this trying to promote atheism. Atheists are the biggest douches on this planet. Biggest hypocrites. At least some Christians spend their time doing things for the better. Try going into the jungle for f-ing weeks in a country far away to help people suffering from hunger/civil war and whatnot.

What does it matter to the atheist...he ain't gonna pay for anything he did wrong in this live, right?

Me, I do as right as I can not because my God says so, cause it is the right thing to do.

This atheist living beside me screws my prepping up to. When the SHTF he won't ask for food (which I would give to him) he would just try to take it. It will be bad for him cause he will be surprised when I send him to meet his maker, the one he so adamantly denies.

Oh another butthurt...
Firstoff: To quote what someone in my opinion rightly stated:
"If I lived my life in a certain manner in order to gain access to a particular kingdom, complete with moral guidelines and rules to live by, wouldn't the act itself be immoral? Should I not live my life in the way that is true to myself? If I were not to, I would enter the kingdom as a lie. Living for the sake of the reward just feels wrong. It makes all moral acts seem dishonest. In my opinion, a loving parent or god would not want that. A warden would want that."

Second: You know nothing of me or my beliefs or my motives. All you have is a GUESS based on your distorted perception and your emotional butthurt led you to portray me as selfish egoist despite the fact you know nothing.

That said:

In my mind you're even more naive then the one who follows his own rules because you think to be able to determine "good" and "bad" and even more so you think it will reward you in some manner.

See its based on perception and while I do think there is GOOD REASON to help others (Karma = Causality) it is just as "right" as not doing so.

Chaos and Creation are neutral by nature.

this is only a surprise to the ignorant. of course heathenistic secularists atheists unbelievers are going to be happier as a general rule. we are in THIS world. the FLESH is OF THIS WORLD. most religions especially Christianity is about getting born again of spirit and separating yourself from the flesh and denying yourself; the flesh. secualrists/unbelievers are all about pleasing the flesh because they have no incentive to do otherwise but this will only lead them to the second death in the lake of fire.

GOD is totally omnipotent and ALL powerful..NOTHING thrwarts his plans EVER.
Yep...he plans ahead alright.

Because he is all knowing and all seeing...alpha and omega...beginning and the end.

He is at the beginning of time and also at the end.

Nothing escapes his notice or intention.

Take Hell for instance...that hellish torture pit he intends to burn trillions of people alive in forever..

He set that up as well..cause he THINKS and PLANS.

He knew long before he created anyone that billions of beings he was about to create were destined to be tortured by being burnt alive forever by him in a place he created JUST for that purpose.

He is also a TORTURE expert and has seen to it that the people in hell suffer to the UTMOST every second of their eternity..

being so compassionate and merciful God also saw to it that there would be NO correction there..

NO rehab..

and NO WAY OUT..

a Just and fair "Punishment" of eternal duration for the mere sin of being created and born into a world where life generally sux..

followed by an even more suckful eternity.

But he planned ahead for that too by slaughetring his own son

Jesus DIED to save us from this place he INTENDED us to go to..

the place HE created to roast the vast majority of people alive in unbearable agony forever.

He died to save us from HIS JUSTICE..

to save us from HIMSELF really..

after all..

HE RUNS and MAINTAINS HELL..

PLUS..

he created every torture device there..

HE creates the flames by the word of his mouth..

HE knows every bit of agony that goes on there..

and all those there DESERVE it..


for being born HUMAN..

In a fucked up crazy loveless world with about 20 million religions to choose and confuse..

But if we choose wrong..with our very LIMITED understanding of life or eternity..

sorry..

but you have to BURN.

Also..

if you are born into a religion like islam or Bhuddism or some such..

YOU WILL BURN as well..

for DARING to be born to the wrong culture..

wrong parents..

and wrong religion..

even though GOD chooses and PLANS and THINKS about who gets born to who and where..

cause if he did NOT..

and you are born by MISTAKE into the wrong religion..then God is not all KNOWING and NOT in control at all.

He planned His Justice system well too..took a LOT of thought.

I mean..

This worlds justice system..

while unfair in a lot of cases usually fits the punishment to the crime.

You speed..

you get a fine..

you steal..

you get a bigger fine and locked away for a bit..

you kill..

you get locked away for a fair while..

But Gods justice system is the opposite..

You steal..

you get tortured forever without mercy..

You swear even..

same result..

you do anything wrong no matter how big or small..

and its TORTURE TIME!!!!

God has one punishment for all..

ETERNAL TORTURE with NO PAROLE..

MERCY..

SYMPATHY..

COMPASSION..

REHABILITATION..

OR LET UP...

And HIS ways are supposed to above OURS?

How many fathers on earth would torture their kids for the rest of their lives for stealing a cookie from the cookie jar?

NONE..

except the really fucked up ones who DO get locked awy for doing it..

But when GOD does it..

NO rehab..

and NO WAY OUT..

a Just and fair "Punishment" of eternal duration for the mere sin of being created and born into a world where life generally sux..

followed by an even more suckful eternity.

But he planned ahead for that too by slaughetring his own son

Jesus DIED to save us from this place he INTENDED us to go to..

the place HE created to roast the vast majority of people alive in unbearable agony forever.

He died to save us from HIS JUSTICE..

to save us from HIMSELF really..

after all..

HE RUNS and MAINTAINS HELL..

PLUS..

he created every torture device there..

HE creates the flames by the word of his mouth..

HE knows every bit of agony that goes on there..

and all those there DESERVE it..


for being born HUMAN..

In a fucked up crazy loveless world with about 20 million religions to choose and confuse..

But if we choose wrong..with our very LIMITED understanding of life or eternity..

sorry..

but you have to BURN.

Also..

if you are born into a religion like islam or Bhuddism or some such..

YOU WILL BURN as well..

for DARING to be born to the wrong culture..

wrong parents..

and wrong religion..

even though GOD chooses and PLANS and THINKS about who gets born to who and where..

cause if he did NOT..

and you are born by MISTAKE into the wrong religion..then God is not all KNOWING and NOT in control at all.

He planned His Justice system well too..took a LOT of thought.

I mean..

This worlds justice system..

while unfair in a lot of cases usually fits the punishment to the crime.

You speed..

you get a fine..

you steal..

you get a bigger fine and locked away for a bit..

you kill..

you get locked away for a fair while..

But Gods justice system is the opposite..

You steal..

you get tortured forever without mercy..

You swear even..

same result..

you do anything wrong no matter how big or small..

and its TORTURE TIME!!!!

God has one punishment for all..

ETERNAL TORTURE with NO PAROLE..

MERCY..

SYMPATHY..

COMPASSION..

REHABILITATION..

OR LET UP...

And HIS ways are supposed to above OURS?

How many fathers on earth would torture their kids for the rest of their lives for stealing a cookie from the cookie jar?

NONE..

except the really fucked up ones who DO get locked awy for doing it..

But when GOD does it..

we honor him and build churches in his name...

GOD is totally omnipotent and ALL powerful..NOTHING thrwarts his plans EVER.
Yep...he plans ahead alright.

Because he is all knowing and all seeing...alpha and omega...beginning and the end.

He is at the beginning of time and also at the end.

Nothing escapes his notice or intention.

Take Hell for instance...that hellish torture pit he intends to burn trillions of people alive in forever..

He set that up as well..cause he THINKS and PLANS.

He knew long before he created anyone that billions of beings he was about to create were destined to be tortured by being burnt alive forever by him in a place he created JUST for that purpose.

He is also a TORTURE expert and has seen to it that the people in hell suffer to the UTMOST every second of their eternity..

Re: Study: religious believers more likely to be depressed than non-believers
Is it a suprise that confronting dogma with clear argumentation leads to many emotional responses?

Nope... just confirming the weakness of it.
