Simply telling an abused person to love his or her abuser is unhelpful, even if love is an essential component of the change process. DRAMATIC SPIRITUAL INTERVENTIONS I recently worked with a woman who was part of a charismatic church connected to a national healing and miracle ministry, which makes an assumption that sexually abused persons are demon-oppressed. The memories may be the concoction of the demons, thus discounting the validity of the past abuse; or the memories may be actual events that are kept in the mind by the evil host that inhabits the victim.
But until they confront the choices they have made in response to their abuse, neither their duty nor their desperation will lead them to genuine passion for the God who actually exists. Their passion (if they have any passion at all) will be for a distorted god, a god who is largely an idol of their own imagination. When we fail to trust the real God, we do not escape trusting someone or something. Trust, like breathing, and indeed, like worship, is inevitable. It is not that some people trust, some worship, some breathe, and others do not.
When these elements are present, then I believe there is a greater potential for developing a false memory. I sincerely doubt (though anything is possible with human beings) that a false memory can be implanted by mere suggestion, watching Oprah Winfrey or hearing someone talk about past sexual abuse. Memories that are recovered spontaneously and suddenly in the normal, daily affairs of life rarely have the same 舠tailored舡 quality of memories recovered by a destructive therapeutic process. In the vast majority of cases, the advent of false memories is not a sinister conspiracy drummed up by a malevolent therapist who meant to do someone harm.
