David Platt Joins Rank Heretics for Conference That Promotes a False Gospel

David Platt has sadly been on a downhill trajectory in recent years ever since he left Brook Hills Church and became intertwined with the elite folk of mainstream Evangelicalism. The status quo of Evangelicalism have no real standards of doctrinal fidelity and they don’t really care if those people that they lend credence to preach a false gospel or not.

Last year, we reported that David Platt, pastor of McLean Bible Church, decided to join Louie Giglio’s Passion 2022 Conference which featured several false teachers and rank heretics from the Word of Faith and prosperity gospel charismatic movement, including Christine Caine, a female pastor who was raised up out of the heretical Hillsong movement

That conference also featured several musicians out of Robert Morris’ prosperity gospel church, Gateway Church, including Cody Carnes and Kari Jobe–Jobe is known for sexualizing her relationship with Christ through her music as well as teaching dangerous, false theology.

Also present at the conference was Jackie Hill Perry, a former practicing lesbian who raps and gives graphic details about her sexual encounters with other women. Levi Lusko, a Steven Furtick clone who preaches a twisted prosperity gospel and reads himself into the text, was also there. Lusko is the pastor of a church called Skull Church; its logo is a skull and the church appears to be extremely obsessed with death.

And, of course, Loui Giglio himself was there as he is the founder and host of the conference. Giglio is a proponent of a popular heresy among charismatic false teachers known as little-god theology–the belief that we as humans carry within us the potential to become God, or divine, like God.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore.

Now, Platt is back at it, announcing that he will be joining possibly one of the worst unbiblical conferences out there, the IF:Gathering.

The IF Gathering conference has been a blemish on the Evangelical Church since it started in 2014 hosting people from nearly every aberrant theological sect of Christendom while avoiding any actual gospel content. The annual conference exists to advance the “woke church” movement, the Prosperity Gospel, and charismatic charlatanry into mainstream Evangelicalism and includes speakers ranging on the spectrum from extremely troubling views to rank heretics.

Jennie Allen is the founder of the popular–but heretical–IF Gathering. 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.

Jennie Allen is a proponent of the Enneagram which is touted as a way–apart from the Scriptures–to gain insight into one’s “true self,” restoring balance and developing more desirable qualities to one’s personality and reaching a state of spiritual “freedom.” Allen also teaches an unbiblical method of “retraining your thoughts” through the use of various pop psychologies rather than through submission to God’s word.

And Christine Caine, who is also present, preaches a completely false prosperity gospel. The bottom line is the IF:Gathering is basically a conference for a mystical encounter that detracts from the gospel. It’s an emotional experience driven by music, subconscious suggestion, and motivational speaking.
