Belief in God Relieves the Blues

There just might be something to all that "God" stuff that secular humanists so often love to scorn.

University of Toronto psychologists reported last year that "believing in God can help block anxiety and minimize stress," their research showcasing "distinct brain differences" between believers and nonbelievers.

A new study released Wednesday by Rush University Medical Center in Chicago took the idea a step further. In patients diagnosed with clinical depression, "belief in a concerned God can improve response to medical treatment," said the new research, which has been published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology.

The operative term here is "caring," the researchers said. "The study found that those with strong beliefs in
a personal and concerned God were more likely to experience an improvement."

And, in modern America we pay Him back by stripping Him from our schools, our holidays, our society.
