How We Set Captives FREE at SCC
The main objective of Christian counseling is to set captives free.
At Sheppard’ Counseling Center, the most important tool in the process is actually the captive. For example, if during the assessment process, the captive reveals that his or her faith is weak, or that there are major issues of doubt and un-belief, then a major objective of the assessment phase would be to build up the client’s faith. The treatment plan lists the problems, hindrances in the situation, the goals, objectives and the strategies toward building the captive’s faith. We also consider whether or not the captive has a strong network system of Christian elders who can support the captive. Therefore, we employ a cadre of mentors or “ministers” for support and encouragement.
The Christian client today is one who has been duped by the organize church into easy believism. They have repeated a sinner’s prayer, acknowledged that they have accepted Jesus Christ into their hearts, and declared to be saved or born again. What has happened is that the fake Jesus answered their invitation. They have worshipped Him through prayer meetings, bible studies, song and dance, yet they are not saved. They don’t know it but the enemy DOES. Therefore, the weapons of spiritual warfare do not work for them.
Without the weapons that redemption affords: the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the girdles of truth, the feet shod with the gospel of peace and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, the captive has to rely on a Christian counselor or minister who is truly saved—one who can successfully work the spiritual weapons against principalities and powers.
Even so, we have found that the captives’ free will is their best weapon. So in deliverance counseling and mentoring, we encourage the captive to fight in cold blood. From a Christian perspective, our role is akin to a trainer who prepares a prizefighter for a boxing match. As spiritual trainers, we are in the captive’s corner, giving specific instructions as to how to win the fight. The captive takes our instructions, does all that he or she can do, and when the time is right, we step in and finish the fight by casting out demons and commanding fallen angels to go about somebody elses business.
It has been our experience, that until captives use their own free will to revoke the invitation that they made to the fake Jesus, their psychic doorways or chakras will remain open, and demons will have unhindered access to their souls and spirits. So we focus on closing those gateways by truth. If the captive does not fight the process, victory is assured.
Since December 2002, we have discovered an astounding statistic. At least 95% of the churchgoing captives of Sheppard’s Counseling Center–about 300 professing Christians— did not understand either sin, repentance or the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. They do not know that they received the fake Jesus.
Consequently, they worship whom they do not know.
This is an extremely appalling, pervasive condition, of epidemic proportions within the worldwide church. Since we have counseled people in Australia, South Africa, England, Japan, Canada, the Caribbean and from at least 1/3 of the United States, the problem is the same. An imposter god is being worshipped as if he is the Lord Almighty. No wonder Jesus warned that in there would be people who would call Him “Lord,” and He will say “I NEVER knew you.”

As you read “Faces of the Religious Demon, you will find that each face or profile offers new insights and challenges. You the reader will learn how any ground obtained by spirit entities , no matter how small or seemingly insignificant is “GROUND POSSESSED,” even though a captive himself may have no obvious manifestation of total possession. Your eyes will also be opened to realize that even the slightest of ground claimed by the enemy can be so debilitating and even toxic to spiritual growth and empowerment, what is the point of quibbling over terms and inches?!” For if a demon has only one inch of territory, it will seem like a mile to a tormented captives.
