Pastor Sam Adeyemi: Seeking Medical Help For Mental Illness Doesn’t Contradict God’s Word
Just in the wake of Sunday, Pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Church took to twitter to share what he termed “Mental Health”. He made it clear with biblical references that the society and people really need to understand that mental patients should seek medical attention rather than spiritual. He draws the line between faith and medicine.
He started off with the hashtag #MentalHealth.
Sound health is part and parcel of our Salvation package he tweeted
The rest of his tweets read:
