ATI Tabloid Headlines
Each headline is somewhat rooted in actual fact, submitted by our readers

NO, MR. GOTHARD, LET'S NOT GO TO HOOTERS. A staffer explains why this restaurant is not appropriate for "encouragement" while on a road trip. BARE KNEES SHOCK EQUIP STUDENTS. ITC has students watch videos on learning character through horse training. Video audience is actually wearing shorts. COUPLE SETS LOVE NOTE RECORD. Covertly pass 300 love notes while in training center. STRONGHOLD DIAGRAM DOESN'T WORK. Boy goes through steps, nothing happens. No freedom, no joy, no peace.

Leadership Frowns on Handshake: at church (IBLP sanctioned church that ATI students are required to attend while at a particular training ctr.), during church service: the pastor announces that everyone must "shake hands and greet one another in the Lord." A male ATI student takes the suggestion seriously and shakes hands with a female ATI student, on more than one occasion. Leadership scowls angrily, but does nothing more about it. [The mystery would be, "WHY" didn't Leadership do anything about it?! hmmm]

Where does a spirit come from?: Mr. Gothard said at Counselling Seminar, and I quote: "We have got to produce the spirit, in this generation." Question was asked by ATI student - "Where does a spirit come from?" and "How exactly are we going to produce one?" This brings to mind John 3 - "The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit."

ITC STAFFER ASSISTS IN HELPING LITs ESCAPE FROM CENTER- With the use of high powered CB radios and a little ingenuity, several Leaders In Training were able to partially escape late last night from the " Indy slammer" where they were indefinitely incarcerated. The great breakout was aided by the use of CB radios that had been loaned to the jailbirds by a naive staffer named Scott Vincent. After breaking through the walls of their cells, the LITs communicated to each other with these forbidden communication devices and were able to partially form a escape plan before they were ceremoniously accosted by the late shift security men. Later the next day Leader Benni M. of the ITC announced the foiled plan of evil menace and asked all involved, including Mr. Vincent to report to Master Gergendi for a tongue-lashing and punishment. Mr. Vincent responded with many four-letter words coursing through his head and then promptly ignoring the request. Nothing was said after the incident and Leaders were not available for questions.

like we're really gonna have some kind of factory to produce a spirit - I don't think so. maybe he didn't mean to say it, but I think it is a "telling" comment. the fact is, the Holy Spirit is _not_ something we can manipulate, produce, or control. and not only that, the ~proper~ attitude toward the Holy Spirit is, "Have Thine Own Way."
