A Summary of the Immorality, Fraud and False Teachings of Bill Gothard
Bill Gothard was a master deceiver and liar. Because he appeared to be a very godly man, many never suspected that he would be deceiving them and lying to them.

ATI: Designed Around a False Education "Principle"
The Advanced Training Institute (ATI) curriculum was promoted and sold to pastors and homeschool parents as the best homeschool curriculum in the world.

There is a much bigger picture that we need to see.

Is Music Amoral?
There is a debate among Christians: is music itself amoral?
