Examining ATI Wisdom Booklets – Music

Examining ATI Wisdom Booklets – Music February 6, 2017

Found this on Facebook in a group discussing how much control Bill Gothard and his Institute of Basic Life Principles exerted over his followers. It’s a page from one of the Wisdom Booklets that NLQ blogger Mel has yet to cover – why all Christian music that is not an old hymn is a sin. I guess Gothard doesn’t realize that most of the hymns from the 1700 and 1800s were new lyrics coupled with the melodies of drinking songs and tunes played in the taverns of the time.

So it’s a sin to listen to syncopated rhythm but heavenly to sing a song that originated in the bar rooms?

What do you think about Gothard’s ideas of music and the effect of music on the spiritual side of your life?
