Chapter Summary

Criticism of Spiritual Mapping centres around two main questions. The first question concerns the perceived possibility of supernatural intervention on earth in the form of miracles. Is divine action, like supernatural healing or prophecy, a possibility to be considered today? The critics were divided into two categories: a. No: those who consider it an a priori impossibility altogether, b. Yes: those who accept supernatural intervention as possible. This chapter analyses the criticisms that were made of Spiritual Mapping Movement. The central question here is how the critics perceived the movement and its concept. It starts with a discussion on the relation between the movement and its critics, the nature of the criticism, its sources and how the critics saw the movements historical roots. The chapter continues with what the critics present as their theological and anthropological criticism. It concludes with a discussion of the criticism in its context.

Keywords: anthropological; criticisms; critics; miracles; Spiritual Mapping Movement; supernatural healing; supernatural intervention
