(13)Word-Faith Teachings are sugar-coated poisons

(1)No one will take poisons knowingly. However, if the poisons

   are coated with sugar, people may be deceived into taking them,

   because the poisons taste good and look harmless. The teachings

   of Word-Faith are sugar-coated poisons. Positive Mental

   Attitude is the sugar coating. The poisonous core is

   Positive Confession.

 

(2)Once the teachings of the Word-Faith are instilled

   subconsciously into your mind, you will gradually depart

   from the biblical truth, with the SELF sitting on the throne in

   your heart instead of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

(3)A writer wrote about mental stress of the Word-of-Faith

   followers, who believe in Positive Confession. The following

   is what he wrote: 

1.[Criticism is suppressed to a large extent. They are subject

   to depression. They are also suicidal and are hospitalized

   in psychiatric institutions to a greater degree than the

   average. There is substantial evidence of suicide among

   members of Word-of-Faith with no previous psychiatric

   record.

2.One reason for such serious mental stress is over-emphasis

   on confession. You must not confess negative areas, because

   that would bring negativity on yourself. If someone has

   prayed for your healing and you have not become well,

   you must confess that you are now well. You must assume

   authority over sin, defeat and weakness, not confess them.

   In this way the individual is positioned in a struggle between

   himself and his thoughts, without any possibility of letting

   others help him, as he cannot confess his inner struggles.

   The control over thoughts, feelings and body is the road to

   perfection, but there are many people who are unable to

   cope with this isolation and this pressure.

3.Many critics think that Prosperity Theology is a doctrine

   for the strong. It requires an almost superhuman effort to

   have to go on struggling with your thoughts and to maintain

   them. If things go wrong, the individual only has himself to

   blame. God on His side already have done everything. ]
