Hope you are well. On this occasion I would like to talk to you about Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). As followers of the teachings of JESUS CHRIST we understand there is a spiritual war between good and evil. The battlefield is the human pre-frontal cortex, it is physically located at very front of the brain, right behind the forehead.
Below you will see that we have deliberate counsel against voluntarily exposing our prefrontal cortex to anything damaging, without a protected and healthy mind we are left defenseless against our evil enemy.

40. Mind Controlling Mind
Agencies Which May Take the Mind Captive.— Corruptions of every type, similar to those existing among the antediluvians, will be brought in to take minds captive. The exaltation of nature as God, the unrestrained license of the human will, the counsel of the ungodly— these Satan uses as agencies to bring about certain ends. He will employ the power of mind over mind to carry out his designs. The most sorrowful thought of all is that under his deceptive influence men will have a form of godliness without having a real connection with God. Like Adam and Eve, who ate the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, many are even now feeding upon the deceptive morsels of error.–8T 293, 294 (1904).
A Dangerous Science.–I have spoken distinctly regarding the dangerous science which says that one person shall give up his mind to the control of another. This science is the devil’s own.–Lt 130 1/2, 1901.
Temporary Relief, but the Mind Permanently Damaged.—No individual should be permitted to take control of another person’s mind, thinking that in so doing he is causing him to receive great benefit. The mind cure is one of the most dangerous deceptions which can be practiced upon any individual. Temporary relief may be felt, but the mind of the one thus controlled is never again so strong and reliable. We may be as weak as was the woman who touched the hem of Christ’s garment; but if we use our God-given opportunity to come to Him in faith, He will respond as quickly as He did to that touch of faith.
It is not God’s design for any human being to yield his mind to another human being. The risen Christ, who is now set down on the throne at the right hand of the Father, is the Mighty Healer. Look to Him for healing power. Through Him alone can sinners come to God just as they are. Never can they come through any man’s mind. The human agent must never interpose between the heavenly agencies and those who are suffering.– MS 105, 1901. (MM 115, 116.)
Below is a video selling the false “benefits” of hypnosis under its current marketing name of NLP. Where would you expect to encounter people practicing NLP?
Las Vegas entertainment shows? Lose unwanted weight? Get a promotion? Attract the person you desire? Learn a new language? Pornography participants? Serial murderers? Sadists?
How about in elementary schools? Used car sales? Starbucks? Have you considered television “evangelist?” What if your spiritual leader/ guru/ shaman/ priest/ pastor is using NLP to “influence/motivate” you to give more money/ volunteer work/ donations/ inheritance/ etc.?
I am sharing this warning because of the implications, they are not just temporary but eternal.
Thank you for your time and attention, please seriously consider this topic for you and your loved ones.
