I could not understand why the book was so inexpensive until i received it and realized that even the amount i spent was too much for such a empty book. If people can make money writing nothing, maybe i should write a book on nothing and sell a book of blank pages. But then that would be a journal.
The Bible says: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Proverbs 18:21
That said I believe Bill Gothard’s legacy will be remembered as wolf in sheep’s clothing, a cult persona, and a deeply disturbed single man who abused women over the course of decades of his “ministry”. Bill Gothard is a big proponent of groupthink, a classic narcissist, and loves the praise of men. He is easily the most attractive to those who have a natural bent towards legalism, rules, control, and judgmental behavior.
To anyone reading this review. Do not get your family involved in this spiritually abusive organization. In my estimation IBLP and ATI are part of a cult formerly lead by Bill Gothard. David Henke in 1993 said Bill Gothard's teachings promoted mind control, spiritual abuse, legalism, and shaming.
It was during this first scandal that Bill Gothard developed the concept of "Giving only a good report," as taught in the 1976 publication Rediscovering A Forgotten Truth, which twisted the teaching of Matthew 18:15-19 to silence staff and volunteers in order to cover up the growing IBYC sex scandal.
In 1980 Steve Gothard was accused and confessed of having sexual relations with 7 different women with the full knowledge of Bill Gothard. Bill Gothard first developed the teaching on "never give a bad report" or "Defilement of listening to an evil report," as published in 1981.Read more ›
