Here you will find articles related to what the IF:Gathering movement is and some of it's speakers (past and present). There are good reasons to be concerned as many of these teachers are deeply involved in Emergent practices including particularly Eastern Mysticism and New Age thinking.

Across the nation you are seeing a surge of issues related to Religious Freedom and Free Speech that center on efforts by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) activists to force their agenda upon us. In Montana, the Legislature and the Montana Family Foundation turned back these efforts for a decade. This is not about equal rights (as they claim) but about creating a Uniquely Protected Class. Now, these activists are going cit-by-city with NDO's that in reality are FPO's - Forced Participation Ordinances. Because this is at the core of worldview issues, we will attempt to supply articles and updates here that relate to this rapidly advancing intrusion on our freedoms.

As a Worldview organization, our first focus in these articles is on the ORIGINS of CC because the "roots" always define the "plant." To not understand the worldview's of those behind CC is to start from a weakened platform. We must understand their direction if we are to affectively engage. Do not be deterred by the dates of some of these articles - they provide important background. And, the links are gold mines of revelation.
As a Worldview organization, we are concerned about TRUTH. We equate that in large part with orthodox, historic conservative Christianity. Here you will find a few articles relating to influential leaders in the Emergent/Church Growth Movements. In many cases, you will sense a Post-Modern flavor to some of their thinking.
