Believe in a ‘benevolent God’ and ‘worry less’

rosmarinPeople who believe in a  “benevolent God” tend to worry less and be more tolerant of life’s uncertainties than those who believe in an indifferent or punishing God, says Science Daily”, quoting research done by David H. Rosmarin, owner and operator and founder and director of  New York’s Center for Anxiety.

That’ll be good news for depressed creationists 😉

[ “… ] in 2009, JPSYCH created a self-directed, spiritually-integrated, electronic treatment program entitled ‘Increase Your Trust in God’ to help Jews suffering from elevated levels of stress and worry’, says Rosmarin on his JPSYCH  webpage.

“In a randomized controlled trial with an international sample of 125 Jewish individuals from various backgrounds (63.9% Orthodox), we found that individuals who engaged in our treatment program benefited from large reductions in anxiety over just a two week period,’ ” he says.

$Coincidentally, he chose the corner of  a US bank note  to illustrate section headed Increase Your Trust in God. 😉
