Koenig, in his review of the literature on the subject, wrote in his findings, "While about one-third of psychoses have religious delusions, not all religious experiences are psychotic.
Indeed, he went on to say, they may be of benefit to the patient — as in Jerry's case. When religious delusions aren't immediately obvious, the treating clinician needs to examine the patient's religious beliefs and behaviors carefully said Koenig.
Delusions are defined as "false beliefs firmly held," and types include paranoid or persecutory delusions , delusions of reference , delusions of grandeur , delusional jealousy and others. Two of these, in particular, may express themselves in a religious context. Here are examples:. Religious paranoid delusions: "Demons are watching me, following me, waiting to punish me if I do anything they don't like," or "If I put on my shoes, God will set them on fire to punish me, so I have to go barefoot all the time.
Religious delusions of grandeur: "God has exalted me above you, normal people. He tells me I don't need help, don't need medicine. I'm going to heaven and all of you are going to go to hell," or "I am Christ reborn. Interestingly, one meta-analysis reported on studies that appear to show a higher incidence of religious delusions among schizophrenia patients in predominantly Christian countries than in other populations.
For example:. That culture has a strong impact on this was supported by the finding that "[i]n Egypt, the fluctuations in the frequency of religious delusions over a period of 20 years have been linked to changing patterns of religious emphasis. Koenig reported that "Persons with severe and persistent mental illness often present for treatment with religious delusions.
This is an area, researchers say, that needs further study. It appears that a high proportion of patients with psychotic disorders consider spiritual faith to be an important coping mechanism. For those who are not delusional, religious beliefs and activities as coping mechanisms have been found in some studies to be associated with better outcomes for the illness as a whole.
Conversely, having religious delusions has been found to be associated with a more serious course of illness and poorer outcomes.
