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.
This month will complete 29 years of PsychoHeresy Awareness Ministries and PsychoHeresy Awareness Letter (PAL). After writing PsychoHeresy: The Psychological Seduction of Christianity, we sent a newsletter titled PsychoHeresy Update to people who had read the book and/or requested it. Our writing began with our first book, The Psychological Way/The Spiritual Way, published by Bethany House Publishers in 1979. To date we have co-authored 26 books and over 300 articles for the newsletters.
Over the years, we have been accused of being anti-psychology, which is totally false! We are anti the psychological counseling theories and therapies, which are known as psychotherapies. These are all what we call “The Psychological Way.” In contrast, we are pro- “The Spiritual Way,” which is the way of the Bible and all it contains to care for souls during the trials and tribulations of life.
It is obvious that psychotherapy is not a medical procedure; it is purely and simply the use of words to alleviate trials and tribulations of life. Psychotherapy is a conversational approach utilizing ideas of fallible mankind instead of the infallible, biblical truth of God to deal with the trials and tribulations of life.
Many verses in the Bible reveal what the spiritual way offers, such as 2 Peter 1:3: “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue.” All the verses that empower believers to deal with the trials and tribulations of life are truths from God to be followed by all who believe in Jesus as Savior and Lord. All the psychological theories and therapies that deal with these same issues are based upon the theories and therapies of sinful man.
Prior to writing our first book, we saw a rising tide of psychological counseling theories and therapies coming into the church. We realized that unless it stopped, it would engulf all facets of the church and become embraced by most Christians in need for ameliorating the exigencies of life. We currently conclude, from surveys of Christian schools and universities, seminaries, denominations, mission agencies, and individual Christians, that the rising tide became a tsunami and has now submerged the church in this heretical departure from dependence on the Lord and His Word.
Thanks to all of you who know that Bible truth is what is needed for all the difficulties and dilemmas of life that are now so prolifically sent out from the church to psychotherapists or used to reveal the mysteries of mankind, about which the Bible has already spoken.
Contending for the Faith,
Martin and Deidre Bobgan
