Thank you for showing us that there are names for the abuse done to us from the pulpit. It was horrific.

Thank you for leaving up the patriarchy video. My 19 year old son and I viewed your lecture together. He kept stopping the feed to discuss it.
A few months ago I read "Escape" by Carolyn Jessop and this same son read it as well. Jessop's book identified for him the culty behaviour we experienced in reformed presbyterian and reformed baptist churches here in Canada. Your lecture identifies and clarifies some of the same beliefs of these churches.
I have more sons who will be viewing your presentation.
Thank you again.

Interesting comments on the Chalcedon organisation you've mentioned. It is also interesting that this organisation was inspired to name itself after the Council of Chalcedon when Roman Pope Leo 1 and the byzantine emperor Marcion and wife Pulcheria brought false accusations against others to usurp power over all the apostolic Churches.
Blessings to you

I really was the first one to look at your wonderful Website, after all, what sort of husband would not demonstrate his support of his wife (and keep a responsibly protective eye over her) - especially in such a critically important ministry to all who have suffered and those suffering under the oppressive and abusive practices of the Cultic, Malicious, Extreme, & Excessive forms of Patriarchy, Shepherding, and analogous movements.
I am proud of you for risking so much instead of taking the easy way out and simply capitulating by joining the Conspiracy of Silence as so many Christians think is the biblical road; Jesus, Stephen, Paul, John, Polycarp and so many others throughout Christian History traveled the Narrow Path and were Crucified, Stoned, Imprisoned, and Ridiculed because they would not keep silent and cried out against Heresy and Heretics.
Keep fighting the hard battle and continue to comfort those who have suffered with the same comfort that you have received in and through suffering. I am so Thankful and so Richly Blessed to have been given and entrusted with a godly, Christian Woman as my Spousal Unit - oh, I mean Wife!!! (please pardon my typos)

Thank you for your ministry. More people and especially, believers need to be educated about the dangers of cultic and spiritual abuse. I was a member of a Bible-based cult, the Trinity Foundation, for seven years
and worked for the Trinity Foundation publication, The Door, the “world’s only religious satire magazine,” from 1998-2000.
As a Christian who was raised in the mainstream Southern Baptist denomination, who has earned an undergraduate degree in Sociology and a master's degree in Religious Education from one of the world’s foremost
Protestant seminaries—Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary—and who has worked in the mental health field for twenty years, I should have been the last person to join a cult!
Several years after leaving this Bible-based cult, I wrote a book, I Can't Hear God Anymore: Life in a Dallas Cult. This book was written for all the former members of this group and groups like it who have lost their way. My prayer is that they will find hope and inspiration from my story, and learn that, even after being involved in an abusive religious cult, there is a way back to psychological health, freedom, happiness, and, ultimately, even a way back to God.
Please check out www.dallascult.com for more information.
