Public Service Announcement
We've heard dozens of students use the standard disclaimer when they're about to affirm an IBLP tenet. You've probably heard it too:
I don't agree with everything Mr. Gothard teaches, but I believe that he has God's special blessing on his life and he certainly has a great insight into Scripture. Therefore, we should respect him, even if we don't agree.
We wondered why so many students feel compelled to offer this disclaimer -- usually accompanied by a "don't think I am a Gothardite," or "it's not like I sleep in my navy and white suit." We decided to investigate. After months of research (reading even the Wedding Covenant booklet), we struck upon the answer.
The Institute backtracks backmasks the standard disclaimer into every one of its musical tapes and CDs. Shocking, after years of hearing about the evils of rock music and backtracking backmasking, to think that the Institute has been using the devil's techniques all along.
Next time you hear someone preface something with the disclaimer, yank the Peace Be Still CD out of their player and set them free.
