Gateway Church is a very common name for a church as there seems to be a church by that name in every town in America. Most of these churches are unaffiliated. There are clearly more than one in Texas and the title should be 'Gateway Church Southlake' or something similar — Preceding unsigned comment added by Locustfist (talkcontribs) 20:22, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

I agree that the entry looks like a big ad for this church. I came across their website while looking for Messianic info, the lack of information on their website about teaching, doctrinal position, etc, was lacking. Hoping to find this on Wikipedia, I was greatly disappointed. As "messianic" sites can vary considerably from very Jewish to very Christian, the information I wanted was clearly missing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WachetAuf (talkcontribs) 10:58, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Have done some light tidying, but the details of the different venues and the pictures are mostly self-promotion. Propose to edit these down significantly, into something nearer tabular form, and to reduce details of staff to names and titles. Matruman (talk) 21:55, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Did the above some time ago. However, I have now twice had to reinstate the controversy over tithing, though it is possible that initially it was deleted by accident. It's now sourced to an article by Morris himself, quoting his words; to avoid a deletion war could anyone wanting to delete it please explain why here. Matruman (talk) 09:33, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

The first line of the controversy section "Pastor Robert Morris has been accused of misusing scripture to say that people must tithe to their church if God" is uncited. Accused by whom? Where? The citation later in the sentence is the source of the Morris quote itself but does not establish the actual point of the sentence, which may be original research.

Also, is a theological disagreement such as this one with the senior pastor really noteworthy enough to create a section on the wiki for the church where he happens to serve? I'd have to see the citation for the "controversy" but suspect a few ministers disagreeing with each other is not really that noteworthy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:35, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
