Gil trying to rope people into IBLP

Recommended Posts

IBLP has a video up of Gil trying to guilt people into spending their family vacation money on an IBLP event. Instead of taking a vacation with your family, come to one of the IBLP family conferences! He promises that it will change your life and your family will talk about it all year*. So don't take your kids on a regular vacation, take them to an IBLP family conference! The boys have fun and the girls get to sit inside and memorize the Bible! Yeah! Your kids will totally prefer this to an actual vacation. :roll: Gil is totally not saying this because he wants your money to help finance his lifestyle. 

The sad thing is, unlike Gil and Kelly who now seem to live perpetually on vacation, some of these families will save every dime they have to come to this because IBLP heaps loads of guilt on families who don't attend. For some IBLP children this is the only vacation they ever know.

the more I hear about this place the more it's crazy how far flung this thing is. three conference spots. plus they are in Texas they were in Chicago and I think they still have some people there (Or Brandon and Micheal would have left)  then their is journey of the heart in Michigan  and i"m sure lots more.

It is way smaller than it used to be. It used to range from Russia down to parts of South America.

I wonder how many families are actually still actively involved in IBLP. And I wonder what the shiny new cult that will inevitably emerge to replace it will look like.

Who really wants to go on a vacation filled with seminars? I have gone on a few work “vacations” where I have to go to daily seminars. They aren’t fun. The fun part is staying a hotel and having my job pay for everything. Unless you are at Comic Con, I don’t see how a panel/seminar is fun. At least when I am there for work I can sometimes just sneak out and go to the pool because no one notices. You know at this gothard conferences everyone is keeping track of everyone else. Aren’t these things the same every year anyway? How many new ways can be taught about courtship and protecting one’s heart every year?

I spy a lot of empty seats in that video.  They used to get a lot more families at Big Sandy alone.  

IBLP is supposed to be trying to sell their fancy Australian pad so they may be losing members there, but they are still going strong in New Zealand, Mongolia, Taiwan, the Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia.  I did not remember that they had also infiltrated Romania.   https://iblp.org/about-iblp/what-we-do/international-ministries

It is rather telling that Gothard never tried to establish bases in Africa.  Lucky Africans.

It is really hard to tell, but the numbers, at least in America, are dropping. I do think that Gil and Kelly will eventually help morph IBLP into a new, shiner looking cult. They've already changed some things. The family conference has been changed, it is now open to non-IBLP families and tries to make it look like IBLP is just participating in the event, not running it.

Gothard never did care for any part of Africa, he seemed to think that the whole place was cursed. IBLP appears to have kept that line of thinking because there hasn't been any attempt to spread the cult there.

As someone who just returned from a work "vacation" where every day was structured, even up to the last day, I found I couldn't wait until the day was over, I could get back to my room and have some quiet time.  Two of my coworkers refused to do anything after the day was over, including the one evening event after the seminars.  After sitting from 9 to 5 in a seminar, they were done, no more structured time even if it was at a fun venue.

I did like having my company pay for everything, including the nice hotel. 

And having been to many comic cons, they are far more fun.

I had United Bates of America on and the episode was about the conference in Big Sandy Texas. Mr. Pearl walks in the room and goes "oh hey, it's fundy-con!" :pb_lol:

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
