Yes that is the official position. I was fortunate that everyone in my congregation took the official position and elders always encouraged me to keep seeking treatment and to take the medicine. I did not have to personally deal with that. If I had . . .I very well may be dead today. Much of my depression centered around the idea that god rejected me---that I had committed the unforivable sin. If someone had told me my depression was caused by demons-in my weakened state--- I REALLY believe I would have jumped. I don't think I'm being melodramatic. I have seen and so have others.
I can only respect a persons belief as long as it doesn't hurt others.
Sizemik---it's a tragedy without end. It really makes me sad. And the bastards disfellowship the wife---do they want to wipe out the entire family? When I left it was because I didn't believe it was the truth anymore. I'm only learning now, and every day, just how destructive and dangerous this cult is.
