One of the greatest tools of Satan who works for Satan’s angelic realm is a woman named Doreen ‘Virtue.’ She is the Devil’s counterfeit to the Godly virtuous woman spoken of in the Bible (Ruth 3:11, and Prov.12:4 – 31:29). The dictionary defines ‘celestial hierarchy’ of angels as: angels, archangel, principalities, powers, dominions, thrones, cherubim, seraphim and ‘virtues’, which is her last name and sheds light on her dark and evil nature. God calls her a spiritual harlot and a witch – “…harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcraft” – (Nah.3:4). Virtues is the only one that is not in the Bible.
Through the years we have seen the rise and fall of various psychological counseling systems. We wrote about some that strongly influenced those Christians who have sought to incorporate secular psychological counseling systems into what they have termed “Christian psychology” or “Christian counseling.” Our book The End of “Christian Psychology” includes descriptions and analyses of some of the major theorists and their models. 1
One psychological system that we did not include at the time is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), which is a combination of methods of communication, counseling, group dynamics, manipulation, and hypnosis. Now, however, we believe it is necessary to inform and warn believers about NLP.
In spite of the poor results of research regarding NLP, it is still being used today by numerous counselors, including professing Christian counselors. In fact, there are some who are packaging NLP especially for Christians. For example, the “Christian NLP 2008” web site states that its mission is:
To be one of the leading Christ-Centered organizations in the world whose focus is teaching and training Christian pastors, counselors, and everyday believers in the tools, patterns, and processes that facilitate the fulfillment of the call and command of Romans 12:2 to “be transformed by the renewing of the mind.”2
The web site includes articles, techniques, testimonials, training program information, and even sermons for pastors that utilize NLP tools. The section titled “About Us” features a man by the name of Bobby G. Bodenhamer (D.Min.), who, together with L. Michael Hall (Ph.D.), wrote a book titled Patterns for Renewing the Mind: Christian Communicating & Counseling to encourage Christians to use NLP
I would be remiss if I did not express my deep and profound appreciation to both Michael [Hall] and Bob [Bodenhamer] for so diligently committing their minds and gifts to the task of integrating NLP within a solid Judeo-Christian perspective.3
Nevertheless, they use, promote, and teach NLP because they believe it contains what they call “state-of-the-art communication models and healing tools” and that it can be used by Christians for good. (Italics theirs.) The book is filled with such promises as: “In NLP, we both discovered incredibly powerful patterns for quickly, effectively, and permanently renewing the mind in NLP.”6 Nevertheless, there is no research evidence that substantiates the claims of NLP, other than personal testimonials. Using personal testimonies absent scientific support is one of the first characteristics of a quack. Yet, the promises and expectations continue to draw people into this web of deception.
She has written 23 books with the following titles: ‘Divine Guidance,’ ‘Healing with the Fairies,’ ‘Angel Medicine,’ ‘Earth Angels,’ ‘How to hear Your Angels,’ ‘Angel Therapy Oracle Cards,’ ‘Angel Numbers,’ ‘Archangels and Ascended Masters,’ ‘Angels 101,’ ‘The Miracles of Archangel Michael,’ ‘Healing With the Angels,’ ‘Crystal Therapy,’ ‘Angels Therapy,’ ‘The Crystal Children,’ Fairies 101,’ ‘Messages From Your Angels,’ Divine Magic,’ ‘My Guardian Angel,’ ‘Goddesses and Angels,’ and now she’s writing a book to corrupt children – ‘Thank You Angels.’ Beware of her.* She is a child of the Devil.*
It is with much grief and alarm that we must note the growing popularity of the psychologist, the “secular priest.” When the church seemingly fails, when God supposedly is not enough and His Word incomplete, when the pastor doesn’t know how to counsel a particular person, then referrals are freely made to the “high priests” of psychology. It ought to be the other way around! When the wisdom of man proves bankrupt (which it is), when the resources of self are exhausted, then it is time to consult the one true Counselor, the Lord Jesus Christ. God has ordained His people and His church to lead the way in solving the painful problems of life… His way . He has ordained pastors and elders to shepherd His flock and protect them from dangerous heresies and “wolves.” He has told us Himself in Isaiah 55:9 that “as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” In responding to the empty wisdom of the world, we must be like Daniel, who “determined in his heart that he would not defile himself” (Daniel 1:8). It is my fervent prayer that the church of Jesus Christ will awaken to its long neglected responsibility to counsel those whose lives are broken by the sins and trials of this life.
– occult Eastern witchcraft and philosophy and
– from the yoke of Kali.
Father, I break the legal rights of the serpent to take the top of the tree, the roots or trunk into bondage and then arrest the whole body in the secret mysteries of witchcraft. I totally break it and Kali’s dominion, rulership and reign. I will have one hundred percent the Mind of Christ!
