We are all sinners saved by grace, so equally valuable, and must see ourselves as God sees us — saved and in need of a continual relationship with the Lord. This leads to fear of abandonment and affirmation that they are bad or unworthy of love.

It is written in tough style, with cold facts, but the aim is not to cause further misery; the words are tough but not condemnatory, because we can all fall into sin, and often do. I have come across many of these personalities and know just how badly they affect society and themselves.

Not because God in unable to change him, but because Satan does not want the person to change! Far better to become disciplined and true to God.

How should a Christian view borderline personality disorder (BPD)?

Borderline Personality: A Scriptural Perspective

Because I was very aware of these processes, I continually brought up my sons in this ethos, even until the eldest left home to get married. Yes, I have credentials, but, I've also learned through the school of hard knocks.

Everything must be either this or that. Is it a legitimate classification? Thus, he can control others but not himself… because he does not wish to. There is also a third reason — he is alone and has no-one to act as a Christian role-model, and so has no proper check on his life and no way to know which way to go. As a Christian, I am anti-psychiatry in the truest sense. And it is the basis for our hope on the recovery journey.
