Stupid Charismatic Tricks: The Use of Hypnosis In Phony Fake Healing
Posted by Job on July 17, 2008
Of course, I am a former Pentecostal Holiness myself and count many sincere and Biblically sound charismatics as my born again brothers in the faith. As a matter of fact, this site (and my prior sites which I am going to slowly start deleting, though this will remain) were originally charismatic spiritual warfare and faith healing sites! So, sola scriptura sola fide (and the other solas) charismatics are not stupid and do not rely on tricks. But alas, this is about those OTHER charismatics. Wholesale lifted from Independent Conservative:
Found another good post over at Battle 4 Truth titled An Ex-Faith Healer Explains The Tricks From Lakeland(WOTM Radio). Check out the video below. (Obviously, some TRIAL VERSION of software was used to make the video .)

Now when you consider the material there along with things like the following:
- Todd Bentley, No Real Healings and Being Exposed by ABCNews Causes Him to Take a Break!
- Insane Prosperity Cult Giving Chants!
- Yet Another “Slain in the Spirit” Injury Lawsuit.
You see people are being put into highly suggestive states of mind and BEING ABUSED.
If you have not already seen it, be sure to check out the documentary Mark Haville narrated: The Signs And Wonders Movement Expo$ed. The Movie That Pulpit Pimps and Word of Faith Types Never Want You to See.
And keep in mind.
|Matthew 7:22-23 (New American Standard Bible)
The real “miracle” you needed is to believe on the Lord Jesus, so you will receive forgiveness of your sins and eternal life. Of course God can heal someone’s body, but you have to be very careful that you’re not the equivalent of an ambulance chaser, just running after men who claim they have “healing”. When you should be happy if you believe on Jesus that your sins are forgiven, not chasing after men.
And you’ve heard it said “by His stripes/scourging we are healed”, but have you ever read Isaiah 53 in full? To understand that statement in scripture is talking about Christ’s work for our healing from sin, the gift of eternal life and new bodies to come? Not about you having guaranteed healing of every physical ailment you might experience in this life! You receive as the Lord wills, whether it be physical healing or Him allowing you to experience His grace with you having a physical ailment.
