Depression and the Gospel
This past weekend, Dr. Bill Clark, Ph.D. was able to speak at Reston Bible Church on depression and the gospel. He walks through critical questions about depression and how believers can come alongside those struggling. Dr. Clark points out the key truth that, until we see ourselves as emotionally & cognitively broken, we cannot empathize with the brokenness and suffering of others.
Watch the video from his talk below:
Questions Dr. Clark covers:
What is depression? Does the Bible talk about it? How should a christian treat depression? What does someone battling depression need most? What Scriptures can we reference about depression? What does the Bible say about depression and the gospel?
