Erroneous beliefs are the basis of IBLP teachings.
on October 21, 2013
I have researched Gothard and IBLP, and found so many erroneous Biblical representations that it made me sick to the stomach...literally. Especially when I would think about the thousands and thousands of good Christian people whom have fallen and will continue to fall into this trap. Not everything that shares Scriptures is worthwhile, many things are dangerous. When the meanings of Scriptures are twisted, taken out of context and given false represenatation, it is downright dangerous to people's faith. This is where false teachings happen, and cults arise from!...the twisting of Scripture. Any thorough, prayerful investigation on Gothard/IBLP by intelligent persons...using their own materials and Bible...will reveal so many false things in his teachings and core beliefs that influence it, that one would RUN from using any of their materials...especially with ones precious children whom they are responsible to sharing the truth with and not leading astray. One does not even need to look at other websites to see the truth. In fact, it is much better to look at things yourself, and see for yourself if it in truth aligns with Scripture. Of course, this can take some time, depending on ones maturity. The book "A Matter of Basic Principals" can be a very helpful guide if one wants help in where to begin their search. Just be sure to look at things yourself, and come to your own conclusion. I personally know people who have fallen into the trap of IBLP teachings...it is a dangerous place to go. Please be diligent in your research.
