Read Agnes Sanfords books for yourself and then evaluate the Inner Healing/Healing of Memories movement. Jude 3 and 4 commands Christians to earnestly contend for the faith and to be wary of those who have crept in unawares into our churches and deny the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. Was she a much-maligned saint? Was her theology biblical? Did she revitalize dead orthodoxy? Were her teachings disguised New Thought?

The Sanford energy goes on and o. ohn and Paula Sandford said of Agnes Sanford, "for all of us the forerunner in the field of inner healing. The teachers that follow in the same vein, would their teachings not be corrupt as well?

was a disciple of Agnes Sanford. Dave, we do in particular with regard to inner healing. We have a book called Abusing Memory which was written by Dr. Jane Gumprecht. and she has a fascinating background

was a disciple of Agnes Sanford. She went to a school of pastoral counseling and she promoted these ideas. One of the ideas was that we have an inner child. The idea that everybody has a personality within them and this is a very fragile personality and it has to do with the hurts-that you’ve hurt this child. and she has a fascinating background. She came up through the religious sciences; is a medical doctor, came to Christ and she knows and understands these things and from her background as well.

And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? (II Corinthians 6:15,16) Ever since the Fall, God's people have been tempted to mix with foreign gods. Many have given in. Evangelicalism's dance with modern psychology is no exception. For the past century, evangelicals have embraced a host of secular therapies, including Inner Healing. Inner Healing is the methodology, widely used in evangelical circles, which claims to heal those painful memories hidden in the "unconscious" soul which hinder present happiness. One name in particular stands out. Agnes Sanford has long been hailed as the mother of the Inner Healing/Healing of Memories movement. She almost single-handedly brought it out of Jungian psychology and New Thought into the Christian Church. Though Agnes Sanford's methods are popular in various segments of the Church, they are anything but Christian.

Good catch on the new age thought contained in Agnes Sanford's writings, well documented and correct as a "debunking". However, the author had an agenda " to discredit Agnes Sanford". The indepth review of Unity is quite worthwile. The book does a good job of showing the evil non-Christian influences behind "healing of the memories". I suggest skipping the intro , These are just typical "dispensationalist" complaints which have no basis in Scripture. I find it odd that one with a dispensationalist view which came from the 1830s. and is NOT orthodox Cristianity) is complaining about unorthodox views! Anyway, the book is an excellent warning against taking the "prayer of faith" beyond a prayer into a soul power trip. i.e. Projecting my thoughts into another which is sort of like a "Jedi mind trick". Christians have no business in mind over matter games. SEE Watchman Nee's "Latent Power of the Soul" for an excellent right on treatment of the subject.

This was a thorough investigation into the "mother" of the inner healing movement. The author quoted extensively from Sanford's own writings and was very detailed in comparing and contrasting these with the theology of the Bible. This book is an excellent resource for identifying the background and biblical issues with the inner healing movement. I would highly recommend it for anyone involved with inner healing, whether for or against the practice.

This books thoroughly and scripturally exposes the grave danger that is predsent because we have, somtimes innocently, allowed pop psychology and New Age thought to filter into the church disquised as Biblical truth.

In "Abusing Memory" Jane Grumprecht effectively shows that the practice of inner healing is a dangerous combination of psychology and new-age spirituality and that it is commonly used by Christian counselors today, some of whom may not even call what they are doing "inner healing." These counselors attempt to heal people of present problems through a mental imagery process that guides people into re-experiencing real or imagined past events.

Dr. Gumbrecht gives a clear overview of the practice of inner healing, of its unbiblical foundations and its clear origins in the thought of Freud and Jung.

She shows how this thought is woven through the teachings and ministries of John Sandford, Karen Mains and Leanne Payne.

Dr. Gumbrecht's is a voice that needs a wider hearing in the Christian community today. Thanks to her for providing such an effective warning and documentation in "Abusing Memory."

I have read this book's exerpts which are limited to the first two or three chapters of the book. I have also read "The healing light" and other books about "inner healing". I have to say, certain aspects of most of these books have helped me grow as a believer. I would at least like to know if the author is a born again Christian who is baptized in the Holy Spirit (If that isn't controversal enough) and if she understands that the work and manifestations of the gifts of the Spirit as found in I Corinthians (such as words of knowledge, wisdom and the prophetic giftings) are given for the edification and comfort of the church and her individual members. Clearly, the Bible teaches that Holy Spirit can make all things known to individuals who are seeking the Lord about any aspect of their lives and draw them more in love and the likeness of Jesus. I don't view this as psychiatry but simply as a means by which the Lord chooses to bring His salvation and wholeness to the emotional areas of a believer's life. I think Ms. Sanford's work is congruent with this.

I was saddened to read the Grumprechts' ridiculous analysis of Agnes Sanford's life and work in the service of our Lord Jesus Christ. I must confess to being prejudiced here (a confession I'd like to hear from the authors) - I knew Agnes Sanford. My grandmother, Mary White Hudson, was her first cousin and she came to Raleigh NC regularly when I was a child. By the grace of God I came to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour through the humble, untiring witness of "Cousin Agnes", my greatuncle her father, and many other members of the White/Hudson family. Jesus Christ was/is her Lord and He alone!
I take consolation in two things - firstly, she is with her Saviour and the slander of the likes of the authors cannot harm her. Secondly, members of the narrow-minded "religious establishment" of the day - ie the Pharisees - accused Jesus Himself of the exact same thing (Matt. 12:24-30).
May the authors find the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ which passes all understanding and the joy of the Holy Spirit - His peace and joy, which radiated from Agnes Sanford all her earthly life - and which I'm sure still does.

Some very literal-minded Fundamentalist Christians will love this book. However, people who have open minds and hearts and who believed Jesus when he said, "The Kingdom is Within" will not care for it. Gumprecht uses unbelievably rigid scriptural interpretations to justify slamming one of the greatest healers of the 20th century. She obviously has so much fear of her own past traumas that she asks the reader to believe that Jesus wants us to avoid our own memories (many conscious people call this "living in deep denial"). Gumprecht is the type of religious person who is very threatened by people whose experience of God is different from her own. Unless you are also this type of religious person, you won't like the book.

Thank you Agnes Sanford for making the world a better place and for helping so many people understand that God really wants us to heal.
Agnes Sanford's teachings have had a profound impact on my life. The Lord used one of her "students" to assist Him in healing damaging memories of abuse and neglect from my childhood. My life was forever changed as a result. It would be sad and unfortunate if this book keeps even one Christian from experiencing the healing grace that I experienced.
