Has Humanity Adopted a Willful Depression?

In an age in which humankind has taught itself we have complete autonomy at every level, with nothing outside of our own existence or perception, we find more disorders, anxiety, and depression than ever. The nihilistic philosophers and scientists tell us such angst is the price to pay for knowing the truth.

It rings hollow when weighed against personality and being. We were created as individual personalities, fashioned to be dependent. The objective reality, the true truth cannot be denied deep within our innermost hearts, no matter how hard we subdue it. Our fractured turmoil calls us back to the Creator who made us to depend on Him, if we have ears to hear.

It is ironic we avoid being uncomfortable at all costs, yet accept such emptiness. In the practical, the experiential, spiritually, we run from discomfort. We don’t want a God for the same reason. To acknowledge one immediately infers accountability. Yet, to avoid this, a humanist, fatalistic outlook is adopted-willful depression, a chosen despair. This discomfort is accepted. One may wonder why, until we discover we are rebels against the Almighty. Many of the modern philosophers and scientists of today openly admit as much. Will we let them think for us?

Mankind can continue to tell ourselves we are hollow, meaningless tissue, while reaping the spiritual and emotional void it brings. The choice is ours. The implications, however, are great. We are broken, hurting beings.
