A Case for Disqualification 3 February We have attempted to fulfill that mission through regularly posted articles primarily written by former students of ATI—articles that have covered a wide variety of issues such as theological discussions of IBLP teachings, personal stories of discovering grace, and bringing to light some of the darker aspects of working at an IBLP Training Center.
What we truthfully did not realize at the time of our launch was the strong undercurrent of depravity displayed for decades at the highest levels of IBLP leadership. As such, most of our attention for the first year of our website was focused on these areas.
In earlythis all changed for us when a young lady shared with us her experiences working for Bill Gothard at Headquarters. In other words, it was textbook sexual harassment.
The emails and comments poured in like a flood, and we knew that we had stumbled across something bigger than we could have ever anticipated. Over the past two weeks, Meg has shared with us her very painful personal journey.
And, later this week, we will share yet another account. We have had men and women who served in IBLP leadership confirm that the allegations are true, although they felt and often were powerless to do anything at the time.
In fact, we have learned that the IBLP Board of Directors has on more than one occasion addressed this behavior with Bill Gothard, but to no lasting avail.
As Paul states in 2 Corinthians 7: Until we see some evidence of this repentance and a desire to turn from your sin, our organization will be unable to assist you in reconciling with those you have sinned against. Reconciliation apart from repentance by the offender is, quite simply, impossible.
There was never a response to that email. This response was never received.
The ministry nearly came to an end at that point, but Bill was able to revive it with a new group of leaders who were willing to overlook what had taken place. A few short years later, inthe Advanced Training Institute of America homeschool program was created, and with it came a new generation of willing laborers … and young victims.
As our database of troubling information has grown, our team has struggled over what to do with what we know. We have always tried to demonstrate a grace-based approach to our work and ministry, even towards the one man we believe to be the originator of the greatest damage.
However, we also know that God desires both justice and mercy, and that grace does not preclude justice or truth. Every time we hear of another young person struggling with their faith in God, or dealing with chronic health issues because of physical mistreatment and exhaustion while working at a training center, or fighting depression and confusion because they were sexually harassed by Bill Gothard, an inescapable question confronts us:Begin the letter by writing “To whom it may concern:”.

Thailand's drug laws are very strict. Period. There's no slap on the wrist for getting caught with a small amount of marijuana – even the prescription kind, which may be legal in your state or country.
