Ministry of the Holy Spirit versus Visualization, Inner Healing, Centering Meditation, and Hypnosis
This audio message takes a close look at the Holy Spirit’s ministry in the Christian life versus dangerous Shaman techniques employed by a wide variety of occultists and many well-meaning yet undiscerning Christians.
Part 1 - A brief scriptural review of the person, nature, and work of God the Holy Spirit.
Part 2 - Four occult Shamanic techniques to avoid:
Mention of occultist/psychologist Carl Gustav Jung and quotes from anthropologist and practicing shaman Michael Harner (The Way of the Shaman), positivism pioneer Norman Vincent Peale (Positive Imaging: The Powerful Way to Change Your Life ), occultist Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich), and Christian/occult practitioner Agnes Sanford (The Healing Light; The Healing Gifts of the Spirit).
