    Toxic Shaming: Speaking the Unspeakable Truth of Psychiatric Violation

    in Current Events

    Vast numbers of us find ourselves shamed or ashamed as a direct result of having been psychiatrized.  What if this is not an accident?  Could it be that toxic shame is a direct intention of psychiatry, not just a byproduct? Is psychiatry using shame in the same way it uses other so-called ‘treatments’ – as a means to silence dissent, marginalize critique and enforce compliance with dominant culture ‘norms.’  Regardless of intentions, what is the implication of an entire profession actively exploiting clinician-patient power differentials so that its members are free to force their will on vulnerable, unconsenting service recipients?  


    In this episode, we explore our lived experiences with what we are coming to term ‘psychiatric molestation.’  We discuss how the medical model has positioned psychiatry to ‘have its way with us’ in body, mind and spirit.  We openly challenge the violation inherent in any posture of ‘clinical intercourse’ which dictates that the psychiatrist is always on top, dominant and entitled to exercise power, while relegating patients to the bottom, submissive, receptacle role.  Finally, and most importantly, we ask how we can overcome iatrogenic shame and recover from the damage that psychiatry has done to us on physical, mental, moral, social and existential levels.

    Reader's Entertainment Radio Presents: Hope Schenk-de Michele and Paul Marquez

    in Books

    Tune in this Thursday, September 3rd at 6pm EST! I'll have authors, Hope Schenk-de Michele and Paul Marquez join me to talk about their new novel, Devil's Daughter: Lucinda's Pawnshop, Book One. Best friends for more than four decades. They both grew up in Los Angeles, California and share a passion for mystery and science fiction. This passion lead them to create the forever young and beautiful daughter of darkness, Lucinda.


    Book Blurb:


    Lucinda is as old as humanity itself, yet perpetually young, beautiful, and endowed with supernatural powers. She lives a double life—human and immortal. Born out of a betrayal of trust between the first woman, Eve, and father, Lucifer, Lucinda has worked covertly and subtly for millennia to be true to her mother’s love by subverting her father’s schemes. In her human guise, she manages Lucinda’s Pawnshop & Antiquary, the doors of which can open to any street anywhere in the world at any time. Mortals who have arrived at a moral or spiritual crossroads are drawn into the mysterious shop. If they acquire one of its cursed artifacts, they may find themselves drafted into Lucifer’s service. And if the Devil's daughter will not love a man he can control, can Lucifer control the man she loves?

    The Story of the Third World War: Part 2

    in Psychology

    Four elements could be found defining social life in most societies: Moral rules were handed down by the God(s) and were inviolate. The most powerful of the God(s) were male. Human beings lived in tribes and loyalty to the tribe superceded loyalty to the individual. The controlling individuals within the tribe were mostly male and the most admired males were those who had proved themselves as warriors. The role of women was defined by their ability to procreate and and support and obey the warrior class. The pushback against the anarchy of modernity involved recreating tribal lives that operated by those moral rules that had been historically forged in humanity's struggle to survvive and exist as evolutionary imperatives.

    BWE Online Bible Study with Minister DeLayna Elliott

    in Spirituality

    We should read and study the Bible because it is God's Word to us. The Bible is literally "God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16). In other words, it is God's very words to us. There are so many questions that philosophers have asked that God answers for us in Scripture. What is the purpose to life? Where did I come from? Is there life after death? How do I get to heaven? Why is the world full of evil? Why do I struggle to do good? In addition to these "big" questions, the Bible gives much practical advice in areas such as: What do I look for in a mate? How can I have a successful marriage? How can I be a good friend? How can I be a good parent? What is success and how do I achieve it? How can I change? What really matters in life? How can I live so that I do not look back with regret? How can I handle the unfair circumstances and bad events of life victoriously?

    We should read and study the Bible because it is totally reliable and without error. The Bible is unique among so-called "holy" books in that it does not merely give moral teaching and say, "Trust me." Instead, we can read it for ourselves.

    Health Reform Monday

    in Christianity

    Whoever turns from the light in one instance hardens his heart to disregard the light upon other matters. Whoever violates moral obligations in the matter of eating and dressing, prepares the way to violate the claims of God in regard to eternal interests....


    The people whom God is leading will be peculiar. They will not be like the world. But if they follow the leadings of God, they will accomplish His purposes, and will yield their will to His will. Christ will dwell in the heart. The temple of God will be holy. Your body, says the apostle, is the temple of the Holy Ghost.


    God does not require His children to deny themselves to the injury of physical strength. He requires them to obey natural law, to preserve physical health. Nature’s path is the road He marks out, and it is broad enough for any Christian. God has, with a lavish hand, provided us with rich and varied bounties for our sustenance and enjoyment. But in order for us to enjoy the natural appetite, which will preserve health and prolong life, He restricts the appetite. He says, Beware; restrain, deny, unnatural appetite. If we create a perverted appetite, we violate the laws of our being, and assume the responsibility of abusing our bodies and of bringing disease upon ourselves.


    The indifference with which the health books have been treated by many is an offense to God. To separate the health work from the great body of the work is not in His order. Present truth lies in the work of health reform as verily as in other features of gospel work. No one branch, when separated from others, can be a perfect whole.

  • Pray For America's 3rd Great Awakening

    in Prayer

    Have you noticed God's hand is already at work to bring the people of God back to dependency on Him?  The War Room Movie brings home the message those who name the name of Christ must latch onto.  If you have not seen it you will be encouraged and strenghtened by it, it is still playing in many theaters through Thursday at least in the Middle Tennessee area.


    America's best hope is not in the 2016 election, that that will be a barometer for where we are.  The answer, contrary to many, is dependency... on God.  2 Chronicles 16:9 says "For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him."  God has blessed our nation, and once we are broken, dependent upon Him, we can be again.  We need to stop fighting God's fights, we are not big enough for that.  We must do battle on our knees.


    The purpose of this program is to share with you the listener, to all that have an ear to hear, the solutions to America's rebellion.  Please share this message, take courage and fight the battles God rightly places in our paths.


    “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people”. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” – John Adams


    America is beyond human help. That means restoration, if it is possible, can only happen when it is to and FOR His Glory.  Read more at 3rdGA.org  |  David Virkler Messages
