I have written numerous blog posts about our ATI / IBLP years… You can read through them. here.
And, you can “Google” just about any subject matter and the words Bill Gothard or ATI or IBLP and you’ll get a slug of other materials, commentaries and articles to wade through.
Here are a few (and I’m not even getting into or touching on the scandals he’s been involved in, accused of and on and on in the last year and over the last thirty + years).
Bill Gothard’s Analogous Teachings
- The Blinding and Binding Teachings of Bill Gothard
Our family was involved with the various ministries of the IBLP and ATI for many years and we determined that some of the teachings, the errors of those teachings were destructive to our walk with the LORD and therefore no longer support in any way the “ministry” and the myriad of programs of, or associated with, IBLP. There were benefits for which we are grateful but the erroneous teachings forced our decision. We no longer support the work of this organization—however(!) we DO support our brothers and sisters in Christ and pray the LORD’s will for them and do not seek to divide over this matter. We believe that the erroneous teaching leads to an erroneous view of the Word, the grace of God, His design, the sovereignty of God, teaching “character” to unregenerate souls, and the methods of lifting Scripture and its Truths and fitting them into a prescribed application is heresy. Therefore do not endorse the teachings, books resources, the ministry of, or reports written by, Bill Gothard, IBLP/ATI, etc., etc. The articles & links on this page give clear reasoning and many clear examples of the heresy, egregious misuse/misapplication of Scripture and fallacious teaching.

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,
that in the latter times some shall depart
from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits,
and doctrines of devils;
Speaking lies in hypocrisy;
having their conscience seared with a hot iron;”
Mormons – LDS / Mormonism
Mormonism --- is NOT Biblical Christianity --- Be clear on this.
He or she did NOT exist before birth. There are not millions of spirit children waiting to be born. Drinking ice tea will not keep them out of heaven. They will not be married forever (to some that may be a relief. To many it would be a great loss). They will never have children in heaven. Their Mormon family and friends will not be in heaven IF they do not receive the real Jesus. They spent two years of their lives spreading a false gospel (assuming they went on missions). They don’t have a heavenly Mother.
Jesus is not their older brother.
They have a sin nature; not a divine nature. And much more

Man is a sinner
There is a penalty for sin
Jesus Christ paid that penalty
It is by believing that we receive forgiveness
This is an incredible time in which we live! You MUST Be aware of what’s going on in the church and in “mainstream Christianity” today.
A great wave of apostasy is washing over the church and many are being seduced by new spirituality, the new apostolic reformation and new age teachings are infiltrating mainstream Christianity and carry with them great deception.
You may already be involved in such teachings, stop and examine. Beware lest you be deceived. I say this in all sincerity and love without attacking sincere believers who’ve been duped by all the new spiritualism, seductive music, ministries, etc.
