|What is Theophostics? Where does it come from, and is it biblical?|
|Answer / Solution|
TheoPhostic’s is a prayer ministry designed to heal emotional hurts from the past that plague the present and threaten the future. While the ministry acknowledges the fact that ALL healing is a work of God, the methodology seems to neglect two facts:
There are just as many critics of TheoPhostic Prayer Ministries as there are proponents. Those who have enjoyed success in the program vigorously dispute the claim that it is not biblical. They are sure that it is biblical because of the results and their understanding of what Scripture is saying. We must remember that results do not confirm nor deny the biblical nature of any system. It must be true to the Word of God as well as producing the kind of spiritual fruit that only God can produce. Knowing the Truth that can set you free is relational knowledge of Jesus Christ, not just the falsehood of past experience.
The methodology is a fine tool for beginning to overcome the baggage of one’s past but it is insufficient for transformation and release from it. TheoPhostic’s philosophy would affirm this fact; however, the general practice of their methodology seems to minimize it. The philosophy of TheoPhostic’s has potential if the emphasis is shifted away from taking so much “action” on past beliefs and hurts and turned towards the transforming power of Truth Himself.
