This is a very important topic for you to be aware and learn so you can advise others about what is going on in churches in Africa especially and in Nigeria in particular. So, I will start by defining some of the terms used in this topic such as hypnosis or/and brainwashing and Stockholm syndrome according to Wikipedia (online dictionary) and give out the links.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of human consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion. The term may also refer to an art, skill, or act of inducing hypnosis. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypnosis
What is brainwashing?
Brainwashing (also known as mind control) is a non-scientific concept that the human mind can be altered or controlled by certain psychological techniques. Brainwashing is said to reduce its subject’s ability to think critically or independently, to allow the introduction of new, unwanted thoughts and ideas into the subject’s mind, as well as to change their attitudes, values, and beliefs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brainwashing
What is Stockholm syndrome?
Stockholm syndrome is a condition that causes hostages to develop a psychological alliance with their captors as a survival strategy during captivity. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm_syndrome
Watch the video below by Sunday Adelaja to learn more.
The question Mr. Adelaja is asking is how low these pastors will go to prove their points that they are powerful. They will keep on going lower and lower.
What you have just watched on this video is an example of brainwashing and Stockholm syndrome.
Do you know what Chris means in the video by saying can you see the shadow? He is conditioning the people ahead of time if he had just gone passed the people without telling them about shadow no body would have fallen. So, by telling them see the shadow here, can you see it he is trying to give suggestions that is the power of brainwashing.
