Reviews - What do customers think about The Judas Personality: Dealing with Antisocial Personality Disorder and Its Victims from the Christian Perspective?
..Oookay Jan 27, 2010
It is my personal opinion that Christians should strive to be more empathetic and forgiving. Reading the summary of this book has only validated that belief for me.
I've struggled with an antisocial personality since before I could remember. I've been evaluated, diagnosed, and medicated by professionals only to come to the conclusion that these medications did not work.
As a person who has had a relationship with God since childhood, I've tried to make the effort to seek out answers and advice from my brothers and sisters in Christ as well as trying to take it to heart. So far, I think the most disturbing advice have come from some of them, which lack the very thing that God has shown us all - mercy, understanding, and forgiveness.
To be blunt, the more answers I am getting from Christians, the more it seems like they want me to live under the shadow of guilt and shame for the rest of my life. It's one thing to offer advice, but another entirely to generalize the broad range of people with this disorder to some of the most anti-christian (if not downright evil) people in history.
