I'm writing to ask your forgiveness. The Lord has convicted me in my heart that it is wrong to harbor a root of bitterness. You see, I believe your website and "humor" are disrepectful toward Dr. Gothard and the thousands of parents who have followed the Lord in to ATIA. They are sincere about their convictions and are obeying God by raising a standard for the world.
In fact, I believe your "satire" is biting, cruel, and disgusting. There is nothing funny about attacking the character qualities of a man who has served God his entire life. Why do you try to hurt Christianity by poking fun at one of God's messengers?
That's not to say I believe every word out of Dr. Gothard's mouth. He is human, and I'm sure he makes mistakes. But that is between him and God.
If Dr. Gothard or IBLP has offended you, you should obey Matthew 18 and go directly to him with your complaints. It is wrong for you to air your problems on the Internet and cause others to take up offenses for you.
But I must confess that for many months I have allowed bitterness to creep up. Every time I checked your site, it made me angry and I cursed you in my heart. This was wrong and I need to ask your forgiveness. I have gone through the Bitterness Stronghold with a spiritual counselor to confess my bitterness toward you. Once I went through the last step, it was amazing how the burden lifted! Now I praise the Lord continually.
I pray for you, and hope the Lord will bring you back into the fold.
