Martin Bobgan holds four university degrees, including a doctorate in educational psychology from the University of Colorado and heads PsychoHeresy Awareness Ministries. Deidre Bobgan holds an M.A. degree in English from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and is a member of the honorary academic society Phi Beta Kappa. Together they have coauthored twenty-five books, some published by Bethany House, Moody Press, and Harvest House. Deidre has also written The Beauty of the Disciplined Life by Grace through Faith. God has further blessed them with four children, ten grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
Martin’s doctorate in educational psychology from the University of Colorado qualified him for the Clinical Psychologist license in California, for which he never applied. After reviewing the many often conflicting theories and therapies along with their often contradictory techniques, they realized the whole business of psychotherapy was a hoax and were alarmed to see it coming into the church.

Dear Co-Laborers in Christ,
To become a clinical psychologist takes about eight years of higher education. During that period of time many classes are taken in the theories and therapies of clinical psychology as one is being educated to become a licensed psychotherapist. While in graduate school, one learns about a variety of theoretical and therapeutic approaches. There are about 500 psychotherapies, not many of which a person will study before obtaining a degree. Typically, at the beginning of the clinical learning, one will learn about the psychoanalytic (Sigmund Freud), the behavioristic (B. F. Skinner), the humanistic (Carl Rogers), and transpersonal psychological approaches.
A Google search gives the following definition: “Transpersonal therapy is a type of therapy that doesn’t focus on a person’s body and mind, but on the health of a person’s spirit. This type of therapy puts an emphasis on a person’s spiritual path or spiritual enlightenment during his life.” While the transpersonal therapies are admittedly spiritual, so also are the other psychotherapies, because they purport to understand and deal with the soul, life, and living. Psychotherapy covers the same subjects as in the Bible, but without the Creator. They are spiritual but not biblical—other religions that compete with Christianity. We are familiar with these four main types of psychotherapy, as well as others, and know that no one has ever proved that any type of psychotherapy has produced better results than the ministry of the church, which existed from the day of Pentecost onward.
Psychotherapy is conversation, words said and exchanged between the therapist and the client. However, there are certain words from the Bible that a state-licensed psychotherapist cannot literally use in a biblical sense, namely, sin, salvation, and sanctification. In addition, you will never hear the following explained: the utter sinfulness of humans; the love of God that passes understanding; the death, resurrection, and coming again of Jesus Christ, who is our only hope of salvation; or the new life in Christ and indwelling Holy Spirit. In other words, the most important words of life that biblically explain man’s past, present, and future cannot be uttered during psychotherapy. That would be unethical and unprofessional.
Thank you to all who see what is hidden in plain sight, i.e., the Words of Life as revealed in the Bible are far superior to the man-made words of mortal men who attempt to heal the affliction of mankind absent the eternal Words of God.
Contending for the Faith,
Martin and Deidre Bobgan
