Visions are metaphorical, and many of hers are delivered in what she calls "pictures", and as you know pictures can be interpreted in many ways. Clearly they are not meant to be read as simple history, but I think they can be very beneficial when read as "visions". I think I have read of arguments against her works, but they seemed to be arguments against a presumed claim that the visions are factual history.

My point was that many seemed to think she was either a) lying b) delusional or c) having Satanic visions.  I have no reason to think this, but I've heard it argued.
