SEPTEMBER Update
Notes

Dear Co-Laborers in Christ,

Our September-October newsletter article is about June Hunt and her world-wide ministry “Hope for the Heart.” Hunt’s popularity is directly related to her radio broadcasts, which have been “heard daily on over 300 outlets” and which include caller conversations. The end result of her world-wide influence is seen in her total revenue over a four-year period of time, which amounts to over 43 million dollars!

We have obtained a number of her Counseling Calls—LIVE CDs. Each CD contains 7 or 8 counseling conversations averaging less than 9 minutes each. In each of these brief counseling sessions Hunt deals with a variety of topics from situational to serious. The serious problems that may take individuals years to resolve are handled by Hunt’s call-in counseling in less than nine minutes. Our focus in the article is to note that the psychotherapy format of transparency is sinfully revealed in her calls and conversations. Hunt’s broadcast counseling depends upon each caller being willing to be transparent about self and others, which invites sinful speaking.

One of the basic assumptions of psychological counseling is that it is emotionally beneficial to be totally transparent and open. In other words, “let it all hang out,” meaning to be completely candid and straightforward, saying whatever you want and condemning whomever you wish, without any need to prove anything. Transparency leads to deceptive feelings of intimacy, especially when the sharing majors on personal struggles with temptations and behaviors the Bible would label as sin. Such exposure can be very enticing with its focus on self and freedom to blame and denigrate others..

Hunt follows the callers’ transparency by responding as though she believes every word. This unresrained transparency in speaking and responding on the part of Hunt and her callers is wht happens in psychotherapy. This psychotherapy transparency format is the basis for what Hunt calls her biblical counseling. However, the resulting unrestrained sinful talk about other people behind their backs flies in the face of biblical principles regarding the tongue and relationships with others. The call-in  conversations carried on by Hunt and her callers are the very grist that grates against biblical admonitions as the content of the conversations turn out to be sinful when measured with the Bible.

Thank you for supporting our efforts to expose counseling charades that claim to be advancing the Kingdom of God, when the content is an unholy mixture of  the worldly wisdom of man (psychotherapy) and Scripture.
