Kelly & Gil LIVE at all three Summer IBLP Family Conferences

Recommended Posts

nelliebelle1197

IBLP's favorite recruiters/poster children/board sitters, the Batesesses, will be featured at all three of the upcoming IBLP family conferences. I am pretty sure they were on the agenda at Big Sandy, but alas, that one is already down.

 

The Fab David Waller will be there as well. Boob and DQ will be featured in a video.

Is there any chance that, after the whole Duggar scandal, a bigger media outlet will cover this event and expose the harmful ideology of this cult to the public?

We could certainly hope so, but sadly I think not. More are just interested in the sensationalism and a fall from grace rather then digging deeper into the doctrine of fundementalist Christians.

Would be nice if some journalist did catch onto this and did an IBLP version of "Going Clear".

I keep hoping that one day that will happen. I think that if their crazy beliefs were made well known both Bateseses and the Duggars would fall from grace in the public eye. The Josh scandal probably won't do it, but learning what they really believe would.

I think this is the spark that will help bring the attention of mainstream Christians to how harmful the fundie world is- especially to women and children. It won't happen overnight but I think that people are starting to come out of the shadows. More and more stories will start trickling out.

Look at how many fundies have smartphones and internet access. I can't believe that none of them ever take a peek at the forbidden worldly blogs and news.

The Duggars are scheduled too. Michelle and Kelly are doing a mothers' session. JB and J'M is doing "courtship engagement and marriage-- not sure how that will work because it is at the same time as the mothers' session. Another day JB and J'M are doing "saved by grace" Maybe a roving reporter will register and attend....we can all hope!

I'm not sure how anyone can read this and still think the Gil and Kelly are not as deep into this shit as Michelle and Jim Bob.

He was amazing when he covered WBC, also a psychotic fundamentalist group. I second this!

He's kind of busy with Scientology at the moment, but he'd be a great choice! :)

Wonder if Gil's "Beware of Where You Get Your Counsel" will mention it's not a good idea to ask a cop with a child porn habit about what to do when your own kid is molesting his much younger siblings. ;)

I still don't understand the appeal. Wtf is appealing about this lifestyle besides control. The Bates are just as deep as the Duggars. They're just tolerateable and more fashionable.

And some would say that makes them all the more dangerous. Their wider appeal, and seeming normality are the very things that makes them more dangerous than the Duggars. People that felt, even before Josh's fall from grace became public, that the Duggars were too extreme, may possibly find the Bateseses brand of ATI/ILB/Christianity more palatable, as they put an attractive face to it.

To which I say :hand: and :naughty:

Dad's Session - Demonstrate Who is Boss

Gah.

Yeah that one is scary to think what will be taught.

I wonder WTH this means

"How to Dwell with your Wife According to Knowledge†– Gil Bates

These people like word gymnastics.

Is this guy like Pearl?

“Parenting with a Diligent Hand†– SM Davis.
I found this synopsis of his video by the same name: solvefamilyproblems.org/SearchResults.asp?Cat=1832

“Proverbs 10:4 draws a sharp contrast between a “slack hand†and a “diligent hand.†What is a slack hand that produces poor character in children? It is letting children get by with something when they should not get by. It is not having a firm grip on what is going on in your child's life. The golden hand of the diligent parent is far more likely to produce the riches of charactered, happy, obedient, respectful, godly children than the slack hand. Many godly parents lose their children, not because they give them permission to do wrong when they ask to do something they should not do. They lose their children because the parent finds out something the child has done wrong and then just lets it go. A parent's slack hand of inactivity becomes permission in itself! This DVD encourages parents to not only use a diligent hand to determine the child's path, but also to not let the child get off the right way for any of seven key reasons.â€

I don't think I want to know what he means using a diligent hand.

crap - I should have stopped looking at SM Davis website. Further down from the "Parenting with a Diligent Hand" video he has this one:

What the Bible Has to Say About Spanking

Out of a file of many stories of parents who have found themselves in trouble for disciplining their children, ALL of those parents were found to have violated some Bible principle. This video tells: Why the world is against spanking; 12 Reasons why you should spank; When you should spank; How you should spank; and What you should expect after you spank. Since the Bible word is “CHASTISE,†the following acrostic is offered:

C-Calm

H-Have time

A-Alone

S-Silence

T-Talk

I-Instruct with eyes

S-Spank with rod

E-Express love & pray

(bolding mine)

I guess I now know what "diligent hand" means. I was really hoping it wasn't literal.

edit - was is the opposite of wasn't.

Gah.

That's so weird. Usually, they at least pretend that it's not about control but about the husband and father being God's representative on earth or whatever crap they believe. Now this one is just a blatant statement: "Yup, I'm the boss, because I have a penis." :shock:

SM Davis' parenting philosophy worked so well in his own family that he found the need to send his own daughter to Hephzibah House (which has been discussed extensively on FJ in the past, but I think it may have been in the Yuku days).

Aside - There is plenty on the internet about Hephzibah House. Warning: It's a rabbit hole.

How to Dwell with your Wife According to Knowledgeâ€

This is probably another version of this:

iblp.org/questions/how-can-i-meet-my-wifes-basic-needs

Scripture instructs husbands to dwell with their wives “according to knowledge,†giving honor unto them “as unto the weaker vessel.†(See I Peter 3:7.) A wife needs to be well understood, so that her husband can discern when to be firm and when to be lenient.

The scourge of a woman is jealousy—the fear of being displaced

Compile a list, share your insights with your wife, and express gratefulness to her for meeting those exclusive needs. Here are a few examples to consider as you compile your own unique list:

•She can give you the joy of a physical relationship without guilt. (See Proverbs 5:19-20.)

•She is a safeguard to your hasty decisions because of her need for security and consistency.

•She discerns the real needs of the children.

You may want to write this list in your prayer journal, as a reminder to intercede for your wife in regard to her weaknesses

Your wife especially needs your protection in the form of establishing boundaries so that she will fulfill her responsibilities within appropriate limitations

You would be wise to establish a regular time to invest in your wife by giving her your undivided attention. Your investment will earn an amazing return!

Your enthusiasm about the idea will bless your wife, but you may have to persuade her to make the commitment to give you her undivided attention, especially if she tends to be a diligent wife and mother.)

During your times of intimate conversation, consider choosing one of the areas listed below and asking her how she feels about it. After listening attentively to her initial response, ask, “In addition to that, do you have any other feelings about it?â€

•Insecurity if her husband dies

•Growing old

•Becoming unattractive to her husband

•Poor health

•Failure as a wife and mother

•Being displaced by another woman

•Husband losing his job

•Future of the children

If my husband wanted to talk to me and then asked "So how do you really feel about getting old, becoming unattractive to me, failing as a wife, and me cheating on you with another women? Be honest about your feelings, this is important." I would be very concerned about our marriage.
