ICMDA Webinar: Prof Glynn Harrison - Does faith cause more psychological harm than good?
Even in the earliest days of the Church, Christians were accused of being ’hate filled’ and of causing harm. And today, in many parts of the world, faith is increasingly linked with trauma and oppression. But is faith psychologically bad for you?
Here we will examine the surprisingly strong evidence that faith is associated with a wide range of benefits, both to psychological and physical health. The actions of Christians have sometimes caused harm but faith itself is strongly linked with our human flourishing and good.
