Melissa Dougherty

Cultural & Theology

She has two associates degrees, one in Early Childhood Multicultural Education, the other in Liberal Arts, and is currently pursuing her bachelor's degree in Religious Studies at Southern Evangelical Seminary. She resides with her husband of 14 years and two little girls in New Mexico where she pursues her online ministry and works as an artist.

Melissa was saved at 16 years old and her life dramatically changed as a result. However, one of the issues she ran into was that she had many questions about Christianity and the Bible and nobody around her could answer them for her. She didn't know it at the time, but she had a love for apologetics and a hunger for theology. She struggled to find answers for years, and never found a solid foundation in the Bible. In this time, partly due to her biblical illiteracy, she adopted many new thought beliefs that she truly believed were Christian beliefs, especially since almost all the teachers she admired quoted the Bible and talked about Jesus. She believed in things like Christ Consciousness, the Law of Attraction, Pantheism, Channeling, Crystal energies, and more. It wasn't until 2010, after she had her first child, when a very unexpected visit from two Jehovah's Witnesses caused her to research not only the Jehovah's Witness religion, but her own beliefs. It was during this time she discovered the terrible deception she'd been in. As a result, she pursued counter cult ministry to Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons and also taught Christians how to witness to them as well. Those tentative years and lessons she learned in that time were used greatly later on when she pursued online ministry as an ex new ager. Melissa wants her content to reach a variety of people from the skeptic to the seasoned believer. Her focus is on reaching people through good theology, teaching about the new age and through her art, whether satire or painting. Her ministry revolves around loving God and loving people.
