You are absolutely right! Talk therapy and gosh awful legal medications such as benzos or opiads, do not help. Only the Lord Jesus Christ gives hope to any depressed person. Only the Lord Jesus Christ changes hearts and minds and gives hope for the future. Without the Lord, we are in a hopeless and dead situation. Invite Jesus into your heart today. He loves you so much that He left His Word, the Holy Bible to tell you about Him. Two thousand years ago, God came down in human flesh as Jesus and walked among His creation. He did this to give us hope for the future. Satan's world is depressed. In the Garden of Eden, Adam, Eve and Satan lost eternal life for mankind when Satan enticed Eve and Adam to disobey God. And to this very day, Satan is still doing the same thing. Mankind listens to many different people, instead of listening to the Lord God as it is written in the Holy Bible. Because Adam listened to Satan and sinned and brought death into this world, Jesus came down as God in human flesh to win back eternal life for us, if we believe His ransom for us on the Cross of Calvary. It is written, "Without faith, it is impossible to please your Creator. " It is impossible to please God without faith. God says that we are without excuse not to believe in Him. He says that even the heavens declare His glory.
There is no depression when you know Jesus, because Jesus is our Hope.
