I just came across this informal three-part Q&A session with John Piper. (It's 3 videos, BTW)

He answers many interesting questions with several interesting answers. Here are some of the questions asked of him:

•what do you think of @FakeJohnPiper?
•why should I want to be a Christian?
•should marijuana be legalized?
•how does unbelief play into my need for ****?
•should I go on the mission field if it puts my wife at risk?
•should Christians use birth control?
•what would you say if you had two minutes with the Pope?
•how do you know Christianity is true?
•who really writes Piper’s tweets?
•what do you think about Halloween?
•why doesn’t Piper “name names” about prosperity gospel preachers?
•how should you confront those who have abused you when you’re younger?
•how do you respond to the idea that seeking accountability means Christ is insufficient?
•is it sin not to like the doctrine of election, even if one believes in it?
•what does Piper do to relax and unwind?
•what’s on the menu at Old Country Buffet? (Not a question that was asked, but one that was answered!)
•should local churches equip young men for ministry, or should they be sent to seminary?
•what hope would you offer to those addicted to cutting themselves?
•difference between confidence and presumption in risk taking?
•do you accept old earth?
•how is it ever right for God to slaughter women and children?
•how could God command others to slaughter?
•how important is it for preachers to preach Christ from every text?
•If you were a member of an Arminian church, what would you do if your pastor asked you not to talk about the doctrines of grace?
•what happens when infants die?
•how have you dealt with the fallout of your statements about your comments on the tornado and bridge collapse in Minneapolis?
•what do you think about the sinner’s prayer and asking people to “invite” Jesus into their heart?
•why not have one of your 30+ elders pastor a campus church rather than using video preaching?
•have you ever seen a vision or spoken in tongues?
•what do you think about Christians using anti-depressants?
•do Christians have permission to pray imprecatory prayers?
•how do I boast only in Christ when applying for a job?
•what books are you planning to write next?

So what did he say about anti-depressants? Sorry didn't want to watch all 3 hours to find the one answer.

I may go on anti-depressants to help control the tremors I have.

Sorry I have not yet finished all three hours either. I finished the first hour (first video) only, but the questions do seem to be in order as they are listed. Therefore I would guess the question about anti-depressants is on the third video, maybe around the midpoint if you wanted to fast forward.

So far I think the most interesting thing I heard him talk about was the birth control issue. He brought up a point that I had never heard anyone else ever bring up........

This may be irrelevant to your condition, but it is his comment.
