Does the stage of life in which you get ill determines your prognosis and course of the illness? For example a person who gets ill after graduating from college and working several years will be more equipped to face life than a person who got ill and never worked (getting ill in the college stage of life or before)??
Would Jesus Christ be diagnosed as mentally ill in the year 2014?Yesterday I watched a movie about Jesus Christ. In the desert he sees the Devil, and overcomes the Devil's temptations. At the last supper he sees his future and predicts one of the apostles will betray him. He says that he is God himself, he is the Mesiah. He feels someone is out there to get him. For the first time in my life I questioned myself if Jesus Christ had some type of mental illness or he really was the Mesiah and had special powers. Maybe if he lived in the year 2014, he would be diagnosed as mentally ill by some psychiatrist. As hiper-religious, delusional, thinking he was chosen to accomplish a special mission, seeing the devil, paranoid, etc. If we lived back then, would we be diagnosed as mentally ill? Or people would believe we had a special mission on earth, we actually saw the devil, and people were actually out to get us? Sorry if I offend someone with what I just wrote. I want to make clear I am a Christian. But all these doubts appeared after watching the movie.
