Case Study Summaries

Each case that we have been privileged to work with since 2002 has provided many of the insights and revelations that inspired the posts on this blog.

Several of our  cases  have consisted of professing Christians of two types:

THOSE WITH A MENTAL DISORDER
AND THOSE WITHOUT A MENTAL DISORDER.

In most cases, the onset of the mental disorder is directly correlated to the client’s religious conversion.  In some cases, the  disorder is the result of the client having been exposed in one degree or another to either religiosity, witchcraft or both.  Hearing voices, OCD and depression are considered mental disorders. 

WE DO NOT ACCEPT CLIENTS WHO ARE  delusional or incoherent, unable to discern reality from illusion. 

Those who are incoherent certainly require the medications
and the skills of professionals who specialize in mental illness.  The vast
majority of OUR cases consist of clients who experienced behaviors—- symptoms not expected to occur and unbecoming  to a Christian:  ie a kind of torment that may or may not include hearing voices, disturbing visions, and various  abnormal body movements.  It should be noted that various anti-psychotic drugs are known to produce abnormal body movements as a side effect to anti-psychotic medications.  However, WE have found in most cases that abnormal body movements also occur in the absence of client  medication exposure.

HERE ARE SOME CASE EXAMPLES: ( Other than for Minister Nydia Martinez-Kennedy, all other  first names  and background info of former clients have been
changed.)

RELIGIOSITY, BORDERLINE
PERSONALITY DISORDER–HEARING VOICES, SEEING DEMONS:
Raised Catholic, an hispanic young woman converted to word of faith. By the time she was a young adult, she was  in ministry–preaching,prophesying, speaking in tongues, and  discerning spirits.  She heard threatening voices throughout the day, and developed a strategy to cope with the voices by trying to ignore them.  She had a dream that showed that there were 3 snakes emanating from her chest area.  During her deliverance session,  an entity manifested that threw her across the room and spoke to me in a guttural voice saying “Nydia is mine.  Her grandmother gave her to me.”  Her grandmother has been a believer and follower of Santeria, a religious system that combines Catholicism with witchcraft.

DEPERSONALIZATION/RELIGIOSITY: A nominal
Christian in a Baptist church for 20 years, this client KNEW that she was not
saved. Then a  friend brought Dorothy into a pentecostal prayer group where they
were tarrying or “chanting” to receive the Holy Ghost through the manifestation
of speaking in tongues.  Once Dorothy “uttered”, she was told that she was saved
or born again.  Almost immediately, Dorothy was “taken over” by hearing voices
and abnormal body movements. She was diagnosed as suffering from
depersonalization by a psychiatrist, but she did not partake in treatment and
was not on medication.   The voices threatened to cause Dorothy to gain 800
pounds.  In two months, a thin woman, Doris had already gained 50 pounds, forced
to eat food out of garbage cans.  I picked Dorothy up from the bus station and
while driving to my office, she grabbed my steering wheel while I was on the
highway, driving at about 60 miles an hour.  She looked at me and said “I didn’t
do that.  It was ‘them.’  They just told me that they are going to give you
quite a time when you try to cast them out.”

CULTISM, UNCONTROLLABLE BODY
MOVEMENTS:
  While watching Christian television, Carol responded to
Christ through a Mormon sponsored program, sent for the Blue Book and repeated a
sinner’s prayer to become saved.  There was no mention of repentance or the
Lord’s resurrection, other than to “make Jesus rule over the throne of your
soul.”  Almost immediately, Carol began to hear voices that she thought were
from the Lord.  While standing in her kitchen, “something” overtook her and
caused her to speak in a tongue.  She received visions about the man she would
marry and the church that she would attend.  At the onset of counseling, her
body parts were moving outside the use of her own will and entities would speak
through her.  Extremely faithful to her church and to the Christ of her
understanding, this case was particularly baffling because I could perceive no
real fault of the client, a fervent, loyal follower of the Jesus of her
understanding, one who refrained from sin and who continually sought after
righteousness.

RELIGIOSITY,
OCCULT/WITCHCRAFT
: An hispanic client raised both Catholic and under
the influence of Santeria, there was no realm of the occult that Johnnie did not
experience, including a belief in reincarnation and in alien life on earth.
Johnnie functioned well in society in a professional career until he had an
accident that caused severe pain.  Once he went to a Santeria witch for healing,
a being stepped into him that caused suicidal ideation, thoughts of violence to
others and insomnia.  A being stepped on his back and caused other body part
manifestations, ie. changes in facial features, head movements similar to those
that occurred in the movie “The Exorcist.”  Prior to counseling, Johnnie began
to attend a Christian non-denominational church where he repeated a sinner’s
prayer and was pronounced “saved.”  The torment immediately worsened.  In our
first session, it was revealed that Johnnie did not understand resurrection,
believing that resurrection was the same as reincarnation.  The word was rightly
divided to him and he obtained a glorious salvation that included the godly
sorrow of repentance and a confession to believe that Jesus Christ came back to
life, once dead.

RELIGIOSITY/INTRUSIVE, DEGRADING
THOUGHTS:
A young  female adult, raised in a Christian cult, entered
into sin as a child with the pastor’s daughter.  The two youngsters obtained
magazines and practiced lesbian sex.  Technically a virgin, Sarah continued to
experience spontaneous orgasm.  Furthermore, she continued to waver in her
faith, as to whether or not she was really born again.  After 11 months of
counseling, Sarah is now assured of her salvation and the spontaneous orgasms
have ceased. To read her testimony in her own words,

OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE
DISORDER/RELIGIOSITY, BLASPHEMOUS THOUGHTS
: Raised by parent who
practiced Christian Science, upon adulthood, Cynthia entered into all aspects of
the occult, including Indian religion, the use of crystals, and necromancy.  A
woman in her 50′s, Cynthia has been treated for 3 decades for OCD.  Around the
same time that she was diagnosed and treated with OCD, she began to frequent
word of faith churches, where she spoke in tongues.  However, she constantly
hears voices that compel her to curse Jesus.  She also has spontaneous
orgasms.  When she attempts to read the bible out loud, she growls like an
animal and hisses like a snake. She has been on anti-psychotic medication for
years.

HEARING VOICES,
SCHIZOPHRENIA:
  Raised in church, Joyce began to dabble in the occult.
Once she took peyote, she began to hallucinate, having been hospitalized for
mental illness on more than one occasion.  Joyce believes that she is saved
because “her pastor told her that since she repeated the sinner’s prayer, she is
saved.”  She loves church and religion, but finds it difficult to enjoy life
because of constantly hearing voices that either condemn her or try to control
her daily activities.

RELIGIOSITY, DEMONIC SOUL
TIES:
  Raised in church, Doris has been depressed for 20 years.  Never
missing church when the doors are opened for many years, Doris realized that
something was wrong with her Christian experience and sought counseling.   In
the first session, I suggested to her that she was not saved.  I really didn’t
think that she had any demons but was I not in for a surprise.  In short, I
quietly spoke to one demon, one time, without even a plan in place to do so. I
called it by name.  Doris had a demonic soul tie with someone who she had
committed adultery with several years back,— someone who she has not seen for
some time but whom she talked to frequently over the phone.  I called the demon
by the name of the man., who I will refer to now as “Thomas.”   I said quietly,
spirit of Thomas, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I break your hold
over “Doris” and I command you to come out and come out now.    First, there was
a calm silence.  I said to Doris, how are you feeling.  She answered, “Sad,, I
feel sad.”

RELIGIOSITY, OCCULTISM,
DEPRESSION:
Raised Catholic in a family with strong gypsy influences,
Barbara was a bitter unhappy person who believed that life was passing her by.
She also had frequented several psychics and readers over the years, even after
she had joined a word of faith church.  When asked why she was seeking
counseling from me rather than from her church, she said that her church was not
into deliverance.  She had a dream which showed that she had 4 demons in
her.  After several months, it was determined that she needed to be delivered
from unholy soul ties as a result of the domination, manipulation and control
manifested upon her by several of her relatives.  We took them one at a time:
her mother and then her sister.  The soul tie was broken with her mother but not
with her sister.  In future counseling sessions, it was discovered that the
client was unforgiving and bitter where her sister was concerned, complicated by
the fact that the client and the sister had made a pact with a gypsy witch, a
pact that placed Barbara under the control of her older sister.  In time, we
successfully broke this unholy soul tie also.  Barbara was successfully released
from counseling 3 years ago.

TORMENT, HEARING VOICES:
Jane came to Christ by listening to mega preachers on TBN.  Shortly thereafter,
she began to hear voices.  Demons also spoke through Jane, against her will.
She had been to practically every “big name” deliverance ministers to no
avail.  She became “a student of deliverance.”  As we proceeded through
pre-deliverance, counseling sessions uncovered that Jane was unknowingly in
sin.  She was of the belief that oral and anal sex was not fornication.  Once
persuaded that she was in sin, other issues began to surface. It was clear to me
that Jane was not saved, but she refused to accept my assessment.  Quoting to me
from several books on deliverance that she had read, she fired me for not
agreeing with her and those whom she respected, people more renown than myself.
I could not help her because she would not allow me to.

WITCHCRAFT, RELIGIOSITY, SUBSTANCE
ABUSE:
Sam had always been a drug addict and a practitioner of the
occult.  One day, he went to a word of faith church service, spoke in tongues,
fell out slain in the spirit and got up delivered from a desire to use drugs.
He began to give Jesus the praise and went about his neighborhood preaching the
good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  However, shortly thereafter, an entity
began to “take over his brain.”  He began to hear voices, have delusions of
grandeur, then suicidal thoughts, then homicidal thoughts.

RELIGIOSITY, OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE
DISORDER: 
Julia came to Christ when she was 18 years old, walking up
to the altar  and receiving the right hand of fellowship from the pastor.
Shortly thereafter, she went to a conference of a mega preacher where 25,000
people were gathered.  She fell out slain in the spirit and got up speaking in
tongues.  She joined a pentecostal church when she returned home from the
conference.  A few weeks later, she found himself suffering from obsessive
compulsive disorder, where she is compelled to wipe and clean everything he
touches.  She has been hospitalized in mental health hospitals several times in
her life.   Now 80 years old, Julia  has suffered from OCD her  entire Christian
life.  She received about 4 sessions when I had to recommend that counseling
stop.  She refused to even consider that perhaps she was not saved and that the
problem began with “the mega preacher” whom she idolizes.

RELIGIOSITY, WITCHCRAFT/DIVINATION,
SEX WITH A FALLEN ANGEL:
A victim of a well-known deliverance ministry,
Andrea’s pastor wrote books and sold tapes of Andrea entering into an altered
state of consciousness, where entities spoke through her.  Once Andrea left the
church, other entities which appeared to be “alters,” mimicked the fallen
angels.  Andrea also reports that a sinister being walked into her bedroom and
had sex with her. A faithful church member for almost a decade, in the first
session, it became clear that Andrea did not understand the cross, repentance or
the resurrection, and therefore she was obviously not saved.  All she learned in
her deliverance church was demonology.

These cases and others are drops in the bucket relative to the
extent of spiritual abuse running rampant throughout  the organized church and
Christian television. I know that there are millions of professing Christians
around this nation that have been caught up in  deception, having heard a
different gospel about a “different Jesus.” The sin of deception, whether
accidental, unintentional or deliberate–the result is the same. Professing
Christians  are dying believing that they are saved when they are not. This is
the worst sin of all because it affects the rest of a person’s life in
eternity.

If the deceived  and bound have not heard it already, they
will hear the Lord say, “I NEVER knew you.” And the fault will be that of the
ministers who are complicating the pure simplicity of the gospel of Jesus
Christ.    Through what I am learning as I practice my profession as a
counselor,. Obviously, the church models of today are not working. When people
can sit  in church and hear sermon after sermon for 50 years and STILL not be
saved, organized church  is not working. When people can watch TV preachers and
come away from the TV demon possessed, it is not working. When captives can go
to their pastors seeking relief and deliverance from their bondage, only to hear
“stand on the word,” —a word that neither the pastor or the captive
understands—it is not working.

SO BE WARNED, UP FRONT AND PERSONAL!!!!   IF YOU ARE SUFFERING IN SIMILAR WAYS TO THE CLIENTS INCLUDED IN THE SAMPLE ABOVE AND  YOU COME TO US FOR COUNSELING, WE WILL TELL YOU TO “STOP GOING TO CHURCH” AND TO “STOP WATCHING CHRISTIAN TELEVISION, AT LEAST  WHILE YOU ARE IN COUNSELING WITH US.   OTHERWISE, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HELP YOU.  ONCE DELIVERED, YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE SOME  VERY SERIOUS CHOICES AS TO WHO YOU WILL ALLOW TO FEED YOU THE WORD OF GOD IN THE FUTURE.
