Meet the Editors
Martin and Deidre Bobgan
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.
One year ago, we published our final printed edition of PsychoHeresy Awareness Letter (PAL), March-April 2021. In it we announced that beginning May 1, 2021 our writings would only be available on the PsychoHeresy Awareness Ministries’ website: https://pamweb.org. The eight-page printed editions of PAL had one page for Letters from Our Readers, two pages for PsychNotes, and five pages for one or more articles.
Beginning May 1, 2021, we were no longer restricted to eight pages as we had been with the printed edition. Now we can include many more pages of writing in the length of articles and letters posted on the website and more pages of PsychNotes sent to people on our email list. Instead of publishing PsychNotes, articles and letters in one document, we decided to publish them separately with separate emails for each category.
Another bonus is that, when we refer to a web page, we can embed the link. With this new ability to link we are now able to show what we were only able to talk about in our printed articles. We are just now able to show videoed counseling by those who claim to do true biblical counseling. As we have said for years, the undoing of the biblical counseling movement does not primarily come from their teachings, but from their practices and presentations of actual counseling when examined with the Bible.
We have made this accusation for years and gave the evidence in writing. We would name one of the leaders of the biblical counseling movement and quote their word for word counseling conversations, which reveal how unbiblical they and their counselees are. However, even with the word for word written renditions of the sinful counseling conversations, very few appear to understand the seriousness of sinful counseling. It is said that “seeing is believing.” We hope and pray that the videoed counseling clips will reduce the numbers of those who are still in the dark about the extent of the counseling deviations from the Bible.
We have now watched over 100 videos of live counseling by the leaders of the BCM and have even noted needed Scriptures that are rarely if ever followed by the biblical counselors. Ironically these are the same verses that are often violated by both counselors and counselees during the counseling.
Thanks to those of you who support our efforts to enlighten those in need and pray with us that the Lord would guide us as to what to say.
Blessings In Christ, Who is our only hope,
Martin and Deidre Bobgan
