Mind Diseases 

  By Dick Innes

There are two serious diseases of the mind that most,
if not all of us, will encounter at some time. These
diseases have been the cause of ineffectiveness and the
death of innumerable churches, organizations,
businesses, individuals and nations!

They can afflict the young but mostly those who are
above 40. The symptoms are often obvious to outsiders,
but usually totally oblivious to those inflicted with
either of these diseases.

The first disease is "homeostatus" which is a clinging
to the status quo with a refusal to change no matter
what. The ancient Israelites suffered from this disease
when God delivered them out of slavery in Egypt. When
things got tough on their road to "recovery," they
doubted God and wanted to go back to Egypt. Crazy, you
say, but that's what they wanted. As the saying goes,
"Better the devil you know than the one you don't

The other disease is "psychosclerosis," a hardening of
the attitudes. This disease is equally destructive. Its
symptoms can be varied such as legalism, rigidity,
arrogance, apathy, Phariseeism, having a closed mind
and so on. It is just as deadly as homeostatus.

We need God's wisdom and insight to guard against these
crippling diseases. They are two of the enemy's
powerful weapons designed to render us ineffective in
God's causes.

The remedy? Daily commit and trust your life and way to
God, know what His Word, the Bible, teaches, and
genuinely seek to live in harmony with His will. Ask
God every day to keep your eyes open and keep you on
the "Truth Road."

ENGLISH is their primary language. It is another trick
of "Doctor Dementia" to test your skills.

The writer who sent this said: I've seen this with the
letters out of order, but this is the first time I've
seen it with numbers. It is a good example of a Brain
Study: If you can read this OUT LOUD, you have a strong
mind. And better than that: Alzheimer's is a long, long
way down the road before it ever gets anywhere near
