OK, I'll rephrase that...

I've come to think that much of the anti-psychiatry movement lacks a firm grasp on what mental illness is and how to deal with it. Unfortunately, mainstream psychiatry doesn't always seem that helpful, either.

I suppose my main point is that being a Christian has provided a set of values that help me separate the good from the bad in psychiatry and other parts of the secular world, so I'm left with maximum benefits and minimal problems.

As for demonic possession and what not...although demonic possession pops up in the Bible, I think its fair to say that the average Christian, when dealing with severe mental illnesses, views them as problems best treated with medication, therapy, and spiritual counseling. I personally think that sin can exacerbate problems, but I don't think madness is necessarily a result of sin.
