Mj007, are saying that a believer is somehow “2nd class” or “lesser” if they must take psychotropic meds indefinitely? To suggest that needing to be on meds for mental health is somehow unhealthy could be construed as shaming those with mental illness’ and that is far from a Christian virtue, in my opinion...

Healthcare often makes an analogy. A person w cancer uses chemo. Is that wrong then that a person w MI take meds? Or in chronic mindset as a diabetic takes insulin.
