While I am sure the Gathering has good intentions, I find their teaching to lack substance and many essential truths of the Gospel. The sermon on Judas was borderline heresy. If you go to their website you will find nothing regarding what they believe or what they find is essential to the gospel - this is frightening and reflected back through their teaching.
Like the practical application!
I've been a believer for over 38 years and have rarely found such a mix of solid theology with such practical application.
Hard to believe the pastor is still under 30.
Someone told me he is a Fuller graduate. I guess that partly explains it.
Authentic and Brave!
This is a community of believers who are very inspiring! They not only hold true to the core pricipals of Christianity and the early church, but also challenge the traditional western religious ideas. I was pleasantly surprised and challenged by the message. No drama, no dazzle, no hype... Very real and inspiring!
