Deliverance Through Christ

Find Freedom


Sometimes our mental issues have root in a spiritual issue, such as fear or sin. In those cases, one way we can find healing is through Jesus. Charles Ware explains how we can experience freedom in Christ from sin and fear. 

Charles Ware is President of Crossroads Bible College, a conservative evangelical institution dedicated to training Christian leaders to reach a multiethnic urban world for Christ. He is on the Board for the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism, the Association for Biblical Higher Education, Anchors Away, and The Biblical Counseling Coalition.  



Charles spoke about the deliverance we can experience through Christ. Jesus has the power to overthrow any lie or fear we might cling to. He connected mental illnesses and the spiritual realm to show how Jesus gives us freedom from sin.  

Do you agree with Charles when he said that if it’s not a genetic problem, someone with mental illness can experience deliverance through Christ? Why or why not?

Jesus certainly has the power to heal us from mental illness. We should begin our journey toward recovery with talking with Him about our struggles. But mental illness should not be taken lightly. If you or someone you know ever suffers from mental issues, always seek professional help from a counselor or mental health expert.
