We will pray for the senior leadership of IBLP as they begin the process of investigating and addressing the physical and spiritual abuse, as well as reexamining many of IBLP’s questionable teachings in light of Scripture. Hogan has reached out to Recovering Grace in the past weeks, and we believe him to be a man of integrity who understands the issues and challenges that lie ahead.We will also continue to pray for the board of IBLP, and we strongly call them to bring in an independent third-party to serve as the investigator and/or conciliator of these matters—one who has experience in investigating allegations of sexual abuse within Christian environments.On February 3, Recovering Grace made a public case that Bill Gothard had disqualified himself from ministry by his actions. Gothard to repent and be reconciled to those who have been damaged under his ministry and teachings.While we acknowledge the range of emotions that our readers are likely feeling in light of this letter, we do not take joy in this announcement, and we understand the gravity and sadness of this situation. Gothard’s resignation will doubtless produce relief in some of our readers and deep disappointment in others.
It reproduces and analyzes the effectiveness of each method of torture and execution.
We thank our readers for your support, your comments, your phone calls and emails to the board, and especially for your response to our “Call to Prayer” today.
We are sincerely grateful for a community committed to bringing truth to light, and recovering and living in grace.
Nonetheless, we realize this is an important moment.
The Recovering Grace leadership team agrees that this is a good first step.
