How To Effectively Counter Evangelical Christian Objections to Hypnosis.
I’ve been a Counselor for 41 years and a Consulting Hypnotist for 31 years. In the 31 years, as a Consulting Hypnotist, I have found that most objections to the use of hypnosis comes from Evangelical Christians who believe, like me, that the Bible is inerrant (without error). If the Bible, especially the King James Version [KJV], says it, it must be true.
My seminar will show the participants how to counter Evangelical Objections by doing what is called an exegesis, which comes from the Greek exegeisthai, meaning to“interpret,” “to draw out or explain” verses or passages of Scripture.
Using this method, participants will be able to counter any Evangelical Christian objection.
