Debunking the Fourteen Basic Needs of Marriage
Bill Gothard has released a pamphlet for married men and women describing the seven basic needs of a husband and those of a wife.  Of course, they are all based on an imperial relationship where the husband is the unquestionable authority and the wife is the subservient and adoring slave.  This is a practical look at squishing Bill's theories and lambasting his odd interpretations of the Bible.

The Rogue "pastoral" Team Series:

In early 2011, my brother, Zach approached me with a transcript of a meeting he had with his then current "pastors".  Their names are Mark and Annah Reid of Freedom Christian Center in Ramsey, Minnesota.  The series is a word for word copy of the transcript along with my commentary and a few words from Zach.  It demonstrates an evil doctrine of pastoral authority that has no place in a life free in Christ.  At times the series gets very comical.  The series is listed by Acts.

Response to Greg Koukl's, Ancient Words, Ever True

Greg Koukl, founder of Stand to Reason, penned Ancient Words, Ever True in order to defend the Bible against those that say it is errant and fallible.  After reading it, I found it deeply flawed on many fronts and began this series to offer a counter-opinion to his "reasoned" words.

The Story of Liz Franklin

Liz Franklin contacted me about her story and I found it so riveting, I had to print it.  She is a classic example of what the patriarchy/authority doctrine can do to those who are vulnerable when the leaders or patriarchs decide to begin any kind of abuse.  Installment 5 will make your blood boil.

I am writing my life story for a website titled No Longer Quivering.  This site offers hope to those who are breaking free from legalistic patriarchy and quiverful doctrines.
