It is quite rare indeed that i watch a movie that I would recommend to other people, rarer still a movie on Mental illness that presents truth in such a Dynamic way. There has been a few movies in the past, Including Angel Baby spiritual awakening movies that looked at Schizophrenia, A beautiful Mind that looked at Schizophrenia, and now comes another extraordinary film, Thought Crimes by Executive Producer Jan De Bent. Let me discuss the film a little and open some eyes, hopefully enough that the medical profession that read this might investigate further by watching it and doing some of us Mentally ill a favor.
For 16 Years I have suffered what doctors label as Schizoaffective Disorder, which for those who don’t know it, is a combination of both Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder. It seems in Heaven’s lucky dip I was a real winner to be blessed with not one, but two very debilitating Mental illnesses. For 16 years I have suffered to try and get a good grip on my mind and be able to control it like any other person. I have succeeded in this, however few people know that I have, or have the courage to admit it.
The biggest tragedy of being mentally ill, is that the medical profession by in large are ignorant of the Supernatural world. What I say is a voice of Jesus Christ speaking to me, is what they call an auditory hallucination. To understand that term more completely, they are saying that even though I think Jesus (i. e. the Messiah who lived, died and was seen again resurrected on the third day), is speaking to me, that he really isn’t and I am making up the voice in my own mind. Essentially they are saying that i am speaking to myself and both making up what Jesus is saying with one thought of mine, and then I am responding to that with another thought of mine, in something I say. Basically they are saying that i am crazy and out of my mind and living in a total delusion. Their only answer to this is to give me medication that they believe will make me less susceptible to this illusion.
The problem is not with me, the problem is with the so called scientifically trained Psychiatrists, who ignore millions of people’s testimony that a spiritual dimension exists in the world. And that there really does exist a God in Heaven, angels, and former angels that work for Satan, another former angel. Because of their adamant atheism, the blind refusal to believe in anything that cannot be proven by a scientific test, they miss treat and do great emotional and spiritual harm to the mentally ill. They discount the fact that many of the world’s greatest inventions and technologies were birthed by people with very clear and well defined spiritual beliefs, and the testimony from these inventors that the original thought for the invention was credited to have coming from God Himself.
I hear many times people laugh and say the cliché, “They say that the line between insanity and genius is very fine indeed” and yet these people by in large have no idea of what they are really saying. On one hand they are saying that like would like to be called a genius but on the other hand they would not to have to live a life of insanity in order to be that genius.
What they don’t know is that a person with Bipolar Disorder gets ideas come to his mind that are outside of the bounds of modern knowledge and technology. They will often get an idea that seems absolutely absurd, and which the world’s inhabitants with their limited knowledge, say is impossible. The Bipolar can be absolutely right with the idea, and the idea could possibly work with enough thought and backing by people. Although unfortunately most people with Bipolar are stigmatized by the general public, and therefore lack support, and added to that can be so debilitated by the illness that they suffer that they never get into the mind space to actually birth the idea into reality.
