Martin and Deidre,

So wonderful you are now making your newsletter available online. I will do everything I can to promote your ministry and work. As I indicated in my previous communication, I am now able to make your newsletter available to [fellow believers].         California

Hello Martin and Deidre,

Have you ever studied the history as to why psychotherapy has become so popular among Evangelicals? I have had opportunity to study a bit of the Evangelical history (particularly in North America), and I discovered things that I NEVER heard of in all the years that I identified with the Evangelical movement.

In the late 1940s there was a significant new agenda that was voiced, and its popularity grew like a prairie fire. It began on three fronts: Billy Graham and his crusades, Fuller Seminary, and Christianity Today. The thrust of this neo-evangelicalism (as it was termed) was to re-focus their social involvement and, most devastatingly, re-evaluate some of the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith. During the years of my Christian education, I never, ever heard of the shift that took place beginning in the 1940s. As I have studied this re-focused movement, it shone a whole new light on the problems that are so prevalent within Evangelical churches — and I would suspect that the roots of today’s fascination with “mental health” are firmly entwined within this same era.

I have appreciated your vigilance in rooting out the heresies in this area of your expertise.            Canada

Martin Bobgan,

I forwarded your current March/April newsletter to our elders. They do read them and are aware of the abuses and errors in the BCM [biblical counseling movement] area, thanks to your book Person to Person Ministry, which they have all read. I am so glad our pastor was receptive to your message and has directed the other elders and any in “counseling” capacity in the church to read as well. He had me order a bunch of them a while back. Our church is now informed and careful in this matter due to your message and your ministry. Thank you for your work. What a blessing you are in the current church climate we find ourselves in today!!!            Minnesota

Dear Dr. Bobgan,

I want to express my gratitude to God for your ministry. I stumbled upon a YouTube recording of your presentation at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, UK, in 2008. I was glued to what you were saying and have since tracked down your web site and am consuming your books that you have graciously made available online.

I am a full-time Carer for my wife (and have been for nearly 15 years), who suffers from a number of mental illnesses. In that time, I have become convinced, just from experience, that psychotherapy, counselling (Christian or otherwise) causes far more harm than good.

Much of what you write about, unbeknown to me at the time, is similar, if not identical, to what God by His Spirit has been showing me over the last five or six years. I don’t find many people who have seen similar here in Australia so it was incredibly encouraging to find another voice.

The churches and the Bible colleges here in Australia have been thoroughly infiltrated by psychoheresy and any challenge is met with “Christian hostility,” which is about as Christian as Christian counselling. I am now studying for a Master’s degree in leadership at a Bible college and resisting all units on counselling, because I know the lies they contain. I’m not interested in “falsehood-ology” as a study subject.         Australia

Hi,

Thank you for your ministry. I was a school and clinical psychologist before I was converted 35 years ago and called into the ministry. Your insights are so true, and psychology is so dangerous. I had, sadly, a church member say to me the other day that if someone was just allowed to “express her feelings” and to “get out her grievances” she would be healed. We need Jesus for everything, and I fully intend to respond to that person, and am preaching a sermon this week on the dangers of mind cure from a worldly perspective.  God bless.        Pastor

 

Dear Bobgans,

I thank you for your articles on the anti-male APA Guidelines and the LGBT Agenda [PAL March-April, 2019]. Both discourses are weaponized by the State Department of “Corrections” and the Parole Board here. Men are conditioned to kowtow to the “religious” faith of “psychotherapy,” by implied threats of non-release to parole, camouflaged as “suggestions” of activities. These “programs” are driven by a female therapeutic staff here. I appreciate your ministry. Please don’t stop! I’m 29 years of age and I see the dangers of psychotherapy in the church!          Prisoner
