Return of the X-er
It's been a long two months. Seriously, after receiving letters like this and this we started examining this website, the motivation behind it, and the ungodliness of pointing the finger at one of God's most humble servants. I checked into a training center (location not disclosed).
After weeks of solitude in a prayer room, haunted by ghosts of Pastor Fields and Mickey Bonner, I finally realized the damage we'd done. It's like this blog was...a jurisdiction---ground given over to Satan on the Internet, and he had built a stronghold, and here come the tormentors....
Oh, who am I kidding.
In honor of the return to blogging, we thought it would be fun to post real comments and letters from several of our devoted listeners. Enjoy.
Congratulations on doing the 100% WORST website I've ever seen! HOW DARE YOU accuse Bill Gothard, a man who dearly loves the Lord?? I am going to tell whoever I see on the street today NOT to check out this website. ATI people are the most loving people I've ever met.
At which point everyone on the street will say "Say what?"
While there are some things that I do not agree with, Bill Gothard is only trying to help people. He should be commended, not ridiculed. If you call yourself a Christian, it is NEVER right to judge another believer for their weaknesses. Instead, you should pray for them.
We don't ridicule Bill Gothard, though the temptation is often strong. We just ridicule his ridiculous theology.
For all the X-ATIers - whatever you call yourselves - I want to let you know that we will be praying that the Lord will bring you back to the right path.
Come get on our path! It's so much more fun! Plus there's no dress code.
