Continuing our False Teacher of the Day series, we’ve already covered many false teachers from well-known and highly visible preachers to obscure preachers and teachers that nobody has ever heard of until now. Today’s false teacher, however, is a very popular speaker among women: Jennie Allen.

Jennie Allen is the founder of the popular–but heretical–IF Gathering. The IF Gathering is a yearly conference that includes speakers ranging on the spectrum from extremely troubling views to rank heretics. Allen is also a popular author and refers to herself as a “bible teacher,” though what she actually teaches isn’t necessarily from the bible.

And this is where the trouble begins.

Jennie Allen is a proponent of the Enneagram which touts itself as a way–apart from the Scriptures–to gain insight into one’s “true self,” and restoring balance and developing more desirable qualities to one’s personality and reaching a state of spiritual “freedom.”

Allen teaches an unbiblical method of “retraining your thoughts” through the use of various pop psychologies rather than through submission to God’s word.

Allen also believes that she was given a “vision” from God to start the IF Gathering whereby she and other women take the stage and preach not just to other women, but also to men. Equally troubling is that she justifies this false vision by pointing not to Scripture, but instead to her heart. She writes in an article at Christianity Today,

With a big vision growing in my heart, I knew exactly what I wanted to ask: “How do you know if a vision is from God?”

She looked down, and then very directly and simply said, “At some point you look at the motives of your heart, and if they are for God, then just do it.”

From Scripture, we know that her “vision” is false; not only is it unbiblical to receive dreams and visions, but her “vision” contradicts God’s Word on women teaching and preaching to men.

Jennie Allen also partners with and promotes a multitude of false teachers and prosperity gospel charlatans including Hillsong’s lady-preacher and “pastor,” Christine Caine as well as Joyce Meyer, who John MacArthur referred to as the top of a spiritual pyramid Ponzi scheme. Allen also promotes pro-Roman Catholic, tongue-speaking, faith-healing new convert to rank heretic, Francis Chan, as well as Jefferson Bethke, who endorses blasphemers and Christian mockers.

And among the worst of her partnerships is Latasha Morrison, a God-hating woman who uses her platform to pervert Christianity into a movement promoting Marxism, racial disharmony, and an ideology that requires perpetual penance from people based solely on the color of their skin. Morrison once even had a stadium full of white students stand up at a Campus Crusade conference and repeat a “prayer of lament” for being white, beginning their spiritual journey of perpetual penance.

Other troubling partnerships include Matt Chandler, David Platt, Eugene Cho, Beth Moore, pro-homosexual Jen Hatmaker, and many others.

Jennie Allen also teaches that God’s redemptive work is to make this world a “better place.” She writes, “When we create and thrive for the good of others, you’re participating in God’s redemptive work of making the world better.” She justifies this by citing a perverted “translation”–The Message–of Galatians 6:4-5 which states “Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.” But the Scriptures don’t teach that God’s redemptive work is to make this world a better place but to save his people out of this world. Jesus said his Kingdom is not of this world (John 18:36) and ultimately, this world will be destroyed and he’ll make a new Earth (Revelation 21:1).

All in all, it is safe to say that Jennie Allen is not a set of safe hands to place your flock into for spiritual guidance. She is disobedient to God and the Scriptures and instead does what she wants to do. Her ministry is not about leading people to a saving faith in the one true God through Jesus Christ, but instead to create a god of her own making that is easy for her and her followers to unite around.
