Let's try again. This time, folks, keep it within the parameters of Godliness!!!!! Here is the problem. There are some who would actually instruct and (if in their authority) prohibit medications that are prescribed by a medical professional and NOT addictive for certain difficulties. The medications for ADD, ADHD, OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder), OPD (oppositional personality disorder), Tourette Syndrome, epilepsy, and autism can (depending on the type prescribed) be eitheraddictive or non-addictive. The addictive ones are highly regulated. To derail consideration that ADD, ADHD, OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder), OPD (oppositional personality disorder), Tourette Syndrome, epilepsy, and autism is a manifestation of sin, this thread is to take the position that such may certainly be Godly attributes in which the person is strengthened and a testimony for others of God's great grace. So here is the question. Why is there opposition to taking medications under the care of a qualified medical professional, and not opposition to those who "self medicate" using wine or some other intoxicant?
