Hi, my name is Bjarke.

I once had a blog here, mainly about how great Christianity is. Then I discovered the darker abusive sides of Christianity, and it dawned on me how indoctrination, emotional/spiritual abuse and purity culture is also a part of Lutheran theology and The Church of Denmark - and how it has adversely affected my own life.

You can read more about that in the Google slideshow, that I created last year. Go to http://bit.ly/ToxicFaith

If you want to know more about the connection between religious trauma and Evangelical Christianity - and what it takes to recover and heal from it, then I highly recommend reading Jamie Lee Finch's ebook, titled You Are Your Own: A Reckoning with the Religious Trauma of Evangelical Christianity.

Psychologist, Marlene Winell, has written multiple articles about religious trauma and related issues. You can find those at http://journeyfree.org/articles/. She has also written the book on religious trauma, Leaving the fold.

Lastly, check out these podcasts:

the *LIFE AFTER | The Airing of Grief | Living After Faith | Exvangelical | Life After God | The Thinking Atheist

At some point I might create a new website or blog, but for now, I will just be using my social media accounts.
