The Golden Compass

Phillip Pullman's novels draw heavily on gnostic ideas, and His Dark Materials trilogy (of which book one, The Golden Compass, was released as a movie) has been a subject of controversy, especially among Christians.

Encountering G12 – The Encounter

For many, the Encounter is the most controversial component of the entire G12 system. The effectiveness of the process depends, in part, on the element of mystery -- even secrecy; thus, in many cases, churches forbid those who have taken part in an Encounter weekend from telling others exactly what takes place. In Latin America, if someone asks a graduate how the Encounter was, he or she is instructed to simply say: It was tremendous. Given the number of disturbing reports we have received, it's not difficult to see why.
