January Update
Notes

Dear Friends,

In the January-February newsletter we reveal that Christianity Today (CT) would not accept our request for a paid ad for our 1987 book PsychoHeresy. Subsequent to that many other Christian publications have turned down our requests for paid ads for PsychoHeresy and later books we had written. In addition, because of our books, we have been considered pariahs throughout various facets of the church, as they too, like the major Christian publications, had succumbed to the psychotherapeutic mentality.

The history behind all of this may surprise those who are unaware of the rapid rise of psychotherapy in the 20th century and of how the new psychological pronouncements were so easily accepted throughout the church. The first clinical psychologist license in America was issued less than 60 years ago and the first Marriage and Family Therapy license was issued less than 50 years ago. Since these licenses were prepared for in university psychology departments, Christians assumed that this type of psychology was like any other science in such institutions. When our book PsychoHeresy and the later books debunked this notion, we became the enemies of many in the church because they had already made up their minds.

While CT featured Sarah Rainer’s article, which we exposed as promoting false information about how clinical psychologists practice, CT would never give us space for our article, which contains the research results that contradict what she said and which could possibly spare some licensed mental health professionals from a law suit that they would surely lose.

Clinical psychology departments are the training grounds for Christians to earn degrees, obtain licenses, and bring their psychotherapy into every level of the church. The fact is that less than 25 years after the beginning of mental-health licensing, clinical psychology with its psychotherapies had infiltrated Christian schools, colleges, seminaries, universities, denominations, and mission agencies. At the local level, pastors referring congregants who need personal ministry to local licensed psychotherapists has become the standard practice all over America.

Thanks to those of you who use the Bible as the standard for ministering to the issues of life rather than secular unscientific notions of men.
