Cahn Talks Mental Health Amid MacArthur Backlash

Pastor John Macarthur is facing backlash from the Christian community after his statements that PTSD is nothing more than grief.

“If you understand, take PTSD, for example, what that really is, is grief. You are fighting a war you lost. Your buddies, you have a certain amount of survival guilt because you made it back, they didn’t. How do you deal with grief? Grief is a real thing. But grief is part of life, and if you can’t navigate grief, you can’t live life,” MacArthur said.

As the Christian Post reported, MacArthur further said, “But if you clinically define that, you can give them a pill, a series of medications, and they end up in LA, homeless on the sidewalk. This is, in regard to children, it’s the most deadly thing that’s been unleashed on children—medication.”

Some days it’s that you’re just tired and worn out, but the Lord will be faithful to give us strength when we are weak. I’ve also witnessed how the Lord has delivered and empowered so many of the incredible men and women of God I’ve been honored to get to know over my years of ministry.

Yet, it hasn’t always been easy. I mean, who starts a Christian TV station with no money in a place like Montgomery? How do you raise a family? I mean honestly, it had better be God because otherwise it would be crazy.
