Jesus Without Baggage

Bill Gothard is one of the primary leaders who has taken Christian fundamentalism to the extreme in the past fifty years. Last time, we discussed Gothard’s teaching on authority and patriarchy. Since then, I encountered a newly-released 31-minute video that does an excellent job over-viewing Gothard’s role in the development of fundamentalism’s movement toward today’s extremes; it features a number of survivors from his movement.

I recommend it highly.

This excellent video uses its 31 minutes very well, so I will limit this introduction so that those who are interested can go right to it. I look forward to all your comments—especially if you were involved in Gothard’s movement.
