PROCHINO, Caio César Souza Camargo; PARADIVINI, João Luiz Leitão  e  GONCALVES, Márcio Antônio. Subjective and cure in the Neopentecostal. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.3, pp. 586-601. ISSN 1414-9893.

The purpose of this article is to analyze some relationships which have been established between contemporary socio-cultural transformations and the demand for cures in neo-Petencostal churches. The demand for cures appears to be a stratagem or a field force promoting processes or modes of subjectivity. The modes of subjectivity in the neo-Pentecostal churches give evidence to the constitution of the subject starting from a direct relationship of causality between the fields of the flexion or the curvature of faith and ethics. If, on the one hand, the demand for a cure is potential by the faith of experience, on the other hand, ethical imperatives mould and scan the conditions for the subjective processes of the believer. Since the neo-Pentecostal churches cannot sustain their promises of a cure, and given the structural condition of human helplessness, a possible articulation is procured between the permanence of the demand for cures and the masochistic condiction. What is revealed in this relationship is the principle of unfulfilled promises and it is exactly because the promises remain unfulfilled that the subjective position of ever demanding a cure is sustained.

Palavras-chave : Modes of subjectivity; Neo-Petencostal; Human helplessness; Masochism.
