“Doctrines of Demons: Exposing Christian Witchcraft,” by Loren Grace and Carolyn Hamlett, page 81

“First and foremost, when Scripture is read and studied in context, it is plain to see that this Spirit Man teaching is based on false doctrine and is not Biblical at all.

“Proponents of these teachings claim that God created the human spirit with seven parts, or, portions. The goal, they say, is for the spirit to be united and working together with seven different parts that are the alleged “redemptive gifts” they claim are spoken of in Romans 12. However, there is no Scripture that says God created the spirit as having seven parts, or that the spirit is to be split or portioned into seven parts, or that the spirit is to be separated from the soul. And a simple contextual study of Romans 12 proves that the very foundation of this teaching is not scriptural, because there is no such thing as “redemptive gifts.” “Redemptive Gifts” is a theological concept that is completely made up by taking scripture out of context and twisting it to mean something that it does not mean.”
