Spiritual Terrorism

How to Defeat, Get Relief, and Overcome Spiritual Terrorism:

  • Healthy spirituality is intended to be our greatest comfort.
  • What do you do when your religion, due to stress, is killing you spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and even physically?  
  • This book will enable you to find peace with God, peace of mind, healing for damaged emotions, and joy of living.

Spiritual Terrorism can feel like the fire of hell is tormenting your mind and searing your soul while still alive–a painful living death!  

I’m Boyd C. Purcell, Ph.D. During my career in pastoral counseling, substance-abuse therapy, psychiatric-hospital psychotherapy, graduate-college teaching, mental-health private practice, and end-of-life care as a hospice chaplain, I have helped empower many people, suffering from spiritual terrorism, to question fear-based religion, think for themselves, embrace love-based religion, and attain healthy spirituality and physical health.

I have written “Spiritual Terrorism” for three reasons:

  • I personally was a victim and am now a survivor of spiritual terrorism.
  • I have helped hundreds of people find peace of mind and spirit who
    had suffered psychic pain for many years from spiritual terrorism.
  • If you are thirsting for living water, from drought in your soul, due to spiritual terrorism, the most extreme form of spiritual abuse, this book for you will be like a person dying of thirst in the desert discovering water in an oasis!

Why is the the cover of Spiritual Terrorism a picture of a blazing inferno? It is because it depicts the problem of literal vs. metaphorical interpretation of fire. The three great enemies (“the unholy trinity”) of sane, reasonable, and sensible Biblical interpretation are: literalism, legalism (salvation by obeying all the rules), and mixed messages (God loves you but…) of God’s love and justice. The common misunderstanding of the symbolic use of fire in the Holy Bible and other Holy Books is a cause of various forms of spiritual abuse and all forms of spiritual terrorism. Spiritual terrorism is the basis of domestic and international terrorism. Terrorists motivated by a fearful view of God which causes irrational religious zeal kill innocent men, women, children in the name of God!                                        

The word “Gospel” means Good News. The Good News of Christian Universalism assures eternal life for all which brings peace of mind and joy of living since it brings freedom from fear of eternal damnation! Universal salvation is taught by all major world religions (in spite of major superficial differences, underneath the surface): Judeo/Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sikhism. This truth is carefully documented, in “Spiritual Terrorism: Spiritual Abuse from the Womb to the Tomb” with historical and current facts, Biblical references, and exposition of the Greek text of the New Teatament. Biblical literalists are fond of saying, “The Bible says, … The Bible Says, … The Bible Says….” and yet what they contend that the Bible says is dishonoring to God and insulting to Jesus. If people really want to know what The Bible says, which honors God and exalts the Lord Jesus Christ, read “Spiritual Terrorism: Spiritual Abuse from the Womb to the Tomb.”

The information in these website pages is intended to help people who are seeking healing for damaged emotions due to spiritual abuse/terrorism and for those who may be interested in buying Spiritual Terrorism for themselves and/or as a gift for others in need of spiritual healing. These pages include only a very small amount of vital information from this book of about 500 pages. There are many examples of victims of spiritual abuse/terrorism having been healed. This book is Dr. Purcell’s treasure trove of spiritual wealth which facilitates healing spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and, even physically, especially for people who are suffering from anxiety disorders, such as panic attacks, due to spiritual abuse as a result of living in fear of eternal torture in hell fire for oneself and/or loved ones!
