‘ADHD Christianity’ April 2013

The following information on ADHD comes from Wikipedia.   “Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) also known as hyperkinetic disorder (HKD) is a mental disorder and neurobehavioral disorder characterized by either significant difficulties of inattention or hyperactivity and impulsiveness or a combination of the two. 

The symptoms are especially difficult to define because it is hard to draw a line at where normal levels of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity end.  The symptom categories yield three potential classifications of ADHD—predominantly inattentive type, predominantly hyperactive-impulsive type, or combined type if criteria for both subtypes are met.

Predominantly inattentive type symptoms as listed by the U.S. National Institute of Mental Health may include:

-Be easily distracted, miss details, forget things, and frequently switch from one activity to another
-Have difficulty maintaining focus on one task
-Become bored with a task after only a few minutes, unless doing something enjoyable
-Have difficulty focusing attention on organizing and completing a task or learning something new or             trouble completing or turning in homework assignments, often losing things (e.g., pencils, toys, assignments) needed to complete tasks or activities
-Not seem to listen when spoken to
-Daydream, become easily confused, and move slowly
-Have difficulty processing information as quickly and accurately as others
-Struggle to follow instructions.”

Does this strike painfully close to the religious form of modern christianity?   I mean let’s get real brethren.  Talk to most teachers/preachers today and they are dejected with their congregations because they seem to have some of these symptoms.  Inattentive, easily distracted, miss details, bored, easily confused, struggling to follow instructions.    Agree or disagree? please e mail me your experiences Rick@ 

May I allow some Light to shine on this issue?  Let me turn the Light on to 1 John 1  6-7:  ‘If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and do not practice the truth: but if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of ‘Jesus’ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”  Notice that we don’t have fellowship if we don’t practice the Truth, action.  If we walk in the light…. Action.   Seems actions will speak louder than words.  

Henry Blackaby said it this way, ‘What you DO next reveals what you believe, no matter what you say’.   

Is it possible that the reason many folks are currently exhibiting ‘ADHD christianity’ is because they are being taught wrong?  How many times have you heard teachings/sermons from James chapter 3 about how your tongue is a fire and you better watch what you say!  Which has Truth in it, yet, please read to whom the chapter was addressed to in verse 1; “Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.”  One person can guide the whole congregation either in the direction that leads to Life or off course.   Agree or disagree?  E-mail me your experiences; .

What course have we been led astray from?  Keep reading in James 3:6!  Scripture is so simple if we read slowly, Jas 3:6  ‘And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of nature, and set on fire by hell.”

Ever look up the phase “course of nature”?  Of course you haven’t! It literally means, ‘the wheel of Genesis’ or the ‘cycles of Genesis’!   James is telling us in 6 short verses the problem of ‘New Testament Christianity’ that teaches ‘The Law of God’ is done away with!  

Since ‘The Law’ = the Books of Moses = the 1st 5 books of Scriptures which includes Genesis!  It only takes one teacher who says, ‘The Law’ = ‘Jesus’ Instructions on Right Living is done away with and ‘we don’t have to do them anymore’ sets our course off the mark! 

Even when ‘Jesus’ clearly says "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them” (Matt 5:17), and later goes on to speak to the teachers who say it’s done away with 2 verses later!  Mat 5:19 ‘whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”   

So this is not a ‘salvation’ issue, one does not keep and do His Instructions from Genesis on, in order to be saved, one does them because the understand they ARE Saved and Love Him!  Joh 14:15  "If you love me, you will keep my commandments.”   I bet you were even taught what the word fulfill means, I’ll tell you, you were taught wrong, see here: 

One could even say, that we have been taught ‘doctrine of demons’ (1Tim 4:1).  Where did the 1st Demonic Sermon happen?   Genesis 3:1!  ‘Did God say’?’  Right from the start, we have people teaching something that The Creator didn’t say!  Adam and Eve, didn’t have to follow His Words of Instructions in order to be in His Kingdom (saved), they were saved!  (Think about that for a while and that should untwist some wicked religious dogma)  NO I am not denying The Messiah as the only begotten Son of Our Father who had to come and give His Life so that we can gain access back to Our Father! 

Here’s a few more Scriptures for us to digest or should I say –‘PreScriptions’ to ingest to be free of ADHD christianity and be Restored (Acts 1:6, 3: 21) to Full Health and Wholeness walking the Right Way! (Action)

Hosea 4:6:  ‘My people are destroyed for lack of what?  We all pretty much can fill that in, Knowledge!  Ever read the rest of that verse?   Hos 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”  Some teachers say to forget about The Law of God, and that’s why we get what we got!  30,000+ denominations!  When there is One Body!  One Adoni!

If my people who are called by my name will turn from THEIR Wicked Ways!!!!  Whose wicked ways?  His people!!!    Ever read the rest of that chapter?  1 Chron 7 14-22, be sure to read verse 17 very slowly and then verse 22 very slowly.  Believe what you read don’t read what you believe, you have bee taught wrong!    If we would DO His commandments He will Bless us!  If we forsake His Words/Law we perish!  Simple as that! 

Who told you that His Law is done away with?  Look at their ministry, is it producing fruit, lasting fruit of Righteous Living and destroying the enemy?  Or are you programmed into another form of ADHD christianity of Hyper-activity?  More programs, more series, more buildings, more projects, more revivals, more church plants,  more books to read (rather than His) More, more, more….

His Instruction has the answer!  Jer 6:16  ‘Thus says the LORD: "Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. But they said, 'We will not walk in it.'  Did someone teach you that you don’t need to walk in the ancient paths?  Know a lot of folks who don’t have ‘rest’ these days?   Please read the rest of the chapter, very slowly and believe what you read don’t read what you believe!!!

Finally, He/Our Father/ The One from The Beginning/The One who does NOT change/ give us not only and open book test, He also give us the answer!!!!    You want Blessings and not incur Curses?  You want Life and not Death?  Read Deuteronomy 30, very slowly, Believe what you read and don’t read what you believe!  No matter what the false prophet teacher who tells you otherwise, send him to Deuteronomy 13 for help.   

Now is not the time to be hooked on Sandy foundations!    Matt 7:26

Remember:  Righteousness is action. 1Jn 3:10  By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.’ 

Got more if you want it, feel free to get in touch.  I love digging deeper into His Word.
