Live Laugh JB3 Asked: What is Holden Caulfield’s Mental Condition in The Catcher In The Rye?

What do you think is Holden's mental condition, (adolescent) apathy, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, or the 5 stages of loss and grief, or whatever else you think? If you could also explain why that would be great. Thanks!

Grace unto you, and peace,
from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Indeed, plural and contrary God: Law: is bi-oplar:
- mania when high … harmful (crusades)
- depression when lo … harmful (PTSD)

So if any of many coming to deceive you
be highminded, and also
say lo here, or lo there,
believe it not: Mt 24:23,26

So mind not high things: be not highminded

Since spiritual wickedness occurs in high places.

And be not depressed by the law = oppression.

Rather flush all law as if dung,
to be rid of evil concupiscence (PTSD)
http://www.godshew.org/Concupiscence.htm

Sin imputation, for the hell of it, is not Godly: 2Cor 5:19.
So be reconciled unto "that God" and harmless "Christ";

For the other God and his Jesus are not merciful.

Cloudy two Sons Jesus is not Sunny one Son Christ.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ with you all. Amen.



Allegory Answered:
Geez, you say "bipolar" like it's a bad thing…

Ignoring the details of your question, since that is not the god I believe in, bipolarity is an essential feature of a creative universe.You can't have light without darkness, front without back, crest without trough, yin without yang.If there were no duality, there would be no experience; there would simply be unbroken symmetry, unending no-thingness.

Unity is god at rest.Duality is god at play.
