Corruption of the Soul

Soulish afflictions, or defects of the soul, come about through five primary means:

Nature: Just like a predisposition for high blood pressure and alcoholism can be passed on to us genetically through our parents, so too can emotional and mental problems be inherited 

Science has proven that such predispositions are inherited through genetic defects — after all, science is merely understanding how God designed the world and how Satan corrupted it

Nurture: Our childhood does much to mold us, for good or bad. So too do our experiences as adults continue to leave an impact on the health of our soul

These experiences become imprinted in our subconscious minds and in our hearts (the core of our being)

TraumaSpecific instances of emotionally traumatic experiences (e.g. abuse, severe injury or chronic illness) leave lasting wounds and scars in our minds and hearts

These cause us to act and react in detrimental ways, aided and abetted by Satan and his demonic horde

Mindsets: Attitudes and beliefs can develop over time in this fallen world that are in opposition to God’s Truth

These form what the Bible calls strongholds (2Corinthians 10:4-6) and cause us to be double-minded (James 1:7-9)

Demonic Oppression: Attacks by the enemy in an area of weakness (e.g. fear, rejection, etc.) can severely impact our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing 

Often, the victim is unaware that demons are behind the attacks which can come through other people and circumstances or directly against our souls (mind, emotion, will)

Christians cannot be possessed by demons, but can be influenced by them, directly or indirectly

In order to attain full healing and become overcomers, we need to deal with each one of these areas

There are Biblical principles and techniques for dealing with each of these five areas that have proven to be quite effective if applied in the name of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit
