Imago Dei: My Mind & The Mind of Christ | What Does The Bible Say About Mental Health?

Monday, May 22, 2023 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments


1 Corinthians 2:16, For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.

Philippians 4:7, And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Having the mind of Christ means sharing the plan, purpose, and perspective of Christ, and it is something that all believers possess. The believer lives a life under God’s influence

The Bible has a lot to say about the mind. However, the mind is not the brain. This is a misconception that needs to be overcome.

The Bible says nothing specifically about mental health.

The Bible talks about health, but does not differentiate what parts of the body or one’s life need to be healthy. God’s concept of healing is the total person, spirit, soul, and body

When understood properly, biblical truth and scientific/physiological truth are not competing concepts, but complimentary concepts.

Each serves a different purpose.
