Is mental illness a result of parental sin?

Since I’ve been back in New Zealand, I’ve been alarmed at the way Christians have embraced the notion of mental illness. This week I answer the question of whether mental illness is a result of parental sin. Along the way we look at what it is.


Here’s the question I was asked:

Some churches believe and tell you that someone’s disability or mental illness is because of their parents Sin. Is this true?

Do you have a question you would like answered?

From time to time people ask me questions related to the subjects I write about. Many of these questions are questions from the experiences we all have as Christians living in a fallen world. To help everyone, I’ve started responding by video and then posting the video online for others to benefit from.
