Ecclesiastes and depression

Posted by Eddie Miller on Sunday 11th November 2001 at 13:07:45
Dear P E Church Net,

Much is said about stress and depression and the need to treat it.

Be that as it may, Dr Richard Bentall, a leading British psychologist went so far as to say that happy people suffer from a form of insanity which distorts their view of the world and that depressed people are better judges of what people think about them (Sunday Tribune 7 June 1992). Could Dr Bentall have a point?

To illustrate a possible interpretation of the above, consider Ecclesiastes 8:14 (the writer of Ecclesiastes was apparently depressed): "There is something else meaningless that occurs on earth: righteous men who get what the wicked deserve, and wicked men who get what the righteous deserve.

Could this not be compared with Proverbs 13:25? " The righteous eat to their hearts' content, but the stomach of the wicked goes hungry."

Is this as accurate as the Ecclesiastes assessment?

Eddie Miller
