Bill Gothard’s 49 Character Qualities: A Summary

Bill Gothard of IBLP is a man who has a great penchant for coming up with lists.  There are theSeven Basic Life Principles, the Ten Unchangeables (WARNING: Opens to a YouTube video), and a list of 49 Character Qualities.

The purpose of this blog post is to check out the verses attached to the Character Qualities to see if they match.  Please note that I am NOT questioning the value of the character traits themselves. I acknowledge that all the traits listed are worthy of developing. I also feel that there may be more virtues that are not listed, but Mr Gothard has stopped at 49 – probably because it is a ‘significant’ number (seven sevens).

The Character Quality, operational definition and accompanying Bible verse reference are straight from the IBLP website.  The Bible verse is not quoted, but the impression is that the Bible verse that is referenced supports the operational definition. I will provide the Bible verse and, verses before/after/around it (if necessary) to give context to see how well the verse matches the Character Quality and the definition.   I will use the KJV because that is the version that IBLP uses.

Part 1: Alertness to Contentment

Part 2: Creativity to Discernment

Part 3: Discretion to Generosity

Part 4: Gentleness to Justice

Part 5: Love to Persuasiveness

Part 6: Punctuality to Sensitivity

Part 7: Sincerity to Wisdom
