Are inner healing “SOZO,” and “Theophostic” ministries biblical?

Sozo TheophosticInner healing ministries that promise “deliverance” from the bondage of sins, lies we’ve told ourselves or the demonic realm have gained a foothold in a growing number of modern churches. But are they biblical? Our guest today says no.

Psychology-based programs such as SOZO, Theophostic counseling and others often use techniques that are concerning to those who know the Word of God forbids such practices and methodology.

“SOZO” is a psycho-spiritual deliverance and inner healing methodology birthed out of Bethel Church in Redding, California (think signs, wonders and gold glitter “glory clouds.”) Theophostic counseling is a guided meditation and age regression technique that helps counselees conjure up images of painful childhood memories through visions.

    Spoken like someone who hasnt had God bring truth in the inner parts. With so many hurting and broken in the church that struggle for years it is sad to see this ministry descredited. God is just. Those who teach will be judged strickly

      Bethel "church" and the whole NAR thing are highly suspect, as it is not the God of the Bible who is at work there but some dark force. Want to guess who?
