Hour 2: Satan, Demons and Psychiatry

Throughout the ages, there have been a great many misconceptions about mental illness – and that includes a lack of understanding and knowledge about serious mental illness, including among Christians. Today our guest, a Christian and a psychiatrist, will share accounts from the Old and New Testament, showing that: Serious mental illness - severe depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia - was likely present and relatively common in biblical times, displaying symptoms and issues similar to what we’re familiar with in the present day.  He will also share why some instances of demon-possession and exorcisms as described in the Bible could, in 2020, be better explained as untreated mental illness.  Join us for a fascinating conversation.

Dr. Ragy R. Girgis

Dr. Ragy R. Girgis is both a psychiatrist and a Christian, and has found that misperceptions often prevent Christians from seeking professional treatment for serious mental illness. In fact, the same person who would take medication for high blood pressure or diabetes might, due to a lack of knowledge (or even prejudice), refuse to take a psychiatric medication. Dr. Girgis seeks to educate both lay people and clergy on serious mental illness, starting with a fresh look at the Bible.
