A Biblical evaluation of Theophostic Ministry.

Belief in the validity of recovered memories appears to form a part of Theophostic Ministry. Critics say it is deviating from Biblical teachings as well:
Since virtually every religion, philosophy, medicine (real or quack), counseling method, and psychic reader in history boast testimonies of those marvelously helped, we must avoid the lure of anecdotal evidence as our primary means for establishing what is true.
For the Christian who seeks the best means for curing wounded souls, the only sure testimony is that of Scripture.
Even with Scripture, Peter warns that "ignorant and unstable people distort" it, and Paul warns that only the Christian workman who "correctly handles the word of truth" is approved — surely implying that many Christian workmen are not.
