OTHARD'S TEACHING ON SEX ABUSEhttp://redeemdinah.blogspot.com/2014/10/gothard-requires-woman-to-repent-for.html

    • NEARLY COMPREHENSIVE DOCUMENTATION OF BILL GOTHARD'S MATERIAL CONCERNING SEX (AND DOMESTIC) ABUSE  There are no victims. The post reviews pertinent teachings and materials that discuss sex abuse, magical ways of warding it off, and victim blaming excuses for why it occurs. Some of this is predicated on Gothard's doctrine that Christians have no personal rights but are wholly dependent on God's magical intervention to protect them. 
    • Gothard's Power of Crying Out (book) 2001  The Biblical character, Dinah, would not have been raped if she had cried out and if she had remained at home and holy.

    • Ron Williams on Strange Women
      • A transcribed sermon of his beliefs that attractive women have poor character, and that any woman or child who is sexually assaulted has merited such because they have the soul of a prostitute. (the King James Version of the Bible transliterates "prostitute" as "strange woman")

    • Samantha Field's personal experience at Pensacola Christian College: required to repent for her own rape by a fellow student
    • Patrick Henry College in The New Republic Feb 2014
      • God's Harvard” (a college “theologically Baptistic” specifically founded with homeschooled students in mind) uses their infrastructure to suppress reporting of sexual assault while shaming and vilifying the abused.

    • John Piper's advice and confusing “clarification” about statement when asked how women should respond to domestic violence
      • Original Video (2009)
        A wife should take a couple of beatings first and shouldn't be sensitive to “verbal unkindness.” Seek pastoral counseling.
        • Critical Review at UnderMuchGrace March 2011
          • Piper's obsession with sex, mentions “group sex” as comparison to domestic violence (???), and points out very different advice regarding abuse of a child at the hands of a parent
      • Piper's Clarification Statement (several years later) Dec 2012
        • Piper appears to retract his statement several years after colleagues noticed all of the criticisms of his position. PLEASE take note that Piper makes a veiled threat that by reporting abuse to authorities, a wife and her children lose her meal ticket and their father because of the consequences the husband faces for committing violence.
      • NOTE: John Piper does not affiliate with the IFB, but he grew up across the street from BJU where his father built a Southern Baptist church. His father was close friends with both Bob Jones and John R. Rice, and he carried many of their beliefs over into the tenets of the Southern Baptist concept of patriarchy called “Complementarianism.” He is listed here with the IFB because of the significant influences that I believe shaped his belief system.
      • ADDENDUM 2021/Editor's Note:  The title of this video is "What does a Wife's Submission Look Like...." ( Piper's ties to the founders of the IFB run deep.  SM Davis, the current IFB expert in families and children sells DVDs entitled "The 7-Fold Power of a Wife's Submission".  I am all too familiar with that term, especially how it is used to title this Piper video.  It is a catch phrase used commonly in Piper's Church and was in my spiritually abusive church that I exited in 1997.  The term as it is used here and in the Davis book make my skin crawl as a PTSD because of the language and how it is spoken./ CMK)
