FREEDOM  FOR THE OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE

Repeated thoughts about contamination. Recurring
doubts. A need to have things in a particular order.
An irrational fear of getting a life-threatening
disease.

Repetitive checking, washing, cleaning, arranging.
Hoarding.

These are some of the common obsessions and
compulsions experienced by people with OCD
(Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder). Do you know
anyone who struggles like this?

What causes obsessive-compulsive behavior? Is this
primarily a spiritual or sin issue? "These questions
must be answered if we are to minister wisely and
compassionately to those who struggle in this way,"
writes Michael Emlet.

Emlet discusses the causes of OCD and gives a
biblical approach to helping those who fight it. He
shows how trusting in Jesus Christ "brings freedom
from the tyranny of performance and perfectionism."
