I have some concerns regarding Dr. Winell, and have decided to finally air them. I understand that what I am writing will quite likely be contentious, so I encourage all of you who are able to to do your own research.

To give it context - for a few months leading up to this, I had been going back through my old journals and looking over my life as a believer.

For days I would feel like I was in a fog, unable to pro
