I thought it might be a good idea to do a web search using the terms EFT and Christian, and came across this article on the Mercola.com web site, but it's by a man named Larry Nims who offers something called BSFF (Be Set Free Fast), which is an offshoot of EFT. I think I have Larry's manual somewhere, I'll have to dig it up and take another look at it. I prefer the physical tapping, it works best for me. Though sometimes my fingers hurt and I firmly rub the tapping points rather than tap, it works that way too. In a pinch I'll do imaginary tapping which is almost as good. I'm getting off on a tangent -- back to this article.
He writes: "As such, I have no problems with any treatments that involve the use of the subconscious mind (in the form of EFT, BSFF, hypnotherapy, medicine, chiropractic and many other practices that are dedicated to helping people).I don't completely agree with him, see my other post about psychology. I particularly would be very cautious about hypnotherapy (aka hypnosis), unless you really know and trust the hypnotist. One of the 'fruits of the spirit' is self-control -- and with hypnosis you're basically handing that control over to the hypnotist. Here's something he says that I agree with completely, at least in regard to my use of EFT:
When ethical, experienced, conscientious and skilled professionals who are working in their areas of expertise apply any method, God can and does use them "for good to those that are the called, according to His purpose."
He then goes on to discuss the devil's programming in our subconscious. It's a good article, check it out.
"They can also remove subconscious blocks to "fervent and effectual prayer," to knowing God, hearing from and obeying God, and being fully available to God. These blocks, I believe, are programmed into us from birth by "the prince of the power of the air" (Satan)who holds sway over our cultures and our world." and "This includes removing the strongholds and bondages that the enemy has set up in our conscious and subconscious minds, our emotions, our bodies, and our spirits. That is what Energy Psychology therapies helps us to do, and what it teaches people to do for themselves.
EFT and BSFF does not make anyone do anything new or different. It simply sets them free to have a true choice about things that previously have been operating on "automatic pilot" under the control of their subconscious mind. In other words, they are freer to hear from and to follow God's leading in their life."
