Rick Warren’s Inquisition

by Joesph Farah, World Net Daily

“Paul warned us about this, too, in Acts 20:29-30: “For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.”

For heaven’s sake, nothing could be clearer from Scripture than that no man has a monopoly on truth. That is why Paul even had to correct Peter (Galatians 2:11-14). Besides worshipping God, this would seem to be one of the principal purposes of the church.

The church is warned over and over about false teachers throughout the Bible. Surely Rick Warren is familiar with those warnings. Why would he assume all pastors to be righteous and assume all lay dissenters to be unrighteous?

And, equally curious, why does Rick Warren eagerly seek to find common ground with Muslim leaders while, at the same time, so ruthlessly advocating the disfellowship of Christian believers? “

    Good points on Rick Warren. Did you see the long list of names of people who signed that document? Some pretty influentian names from seminaries and large churches. Rick Warren, Bil Hybels names really stood out. I kind of wonder if the president of YS (Youth Specialties) is supportive of this? Did you see the latest video that his site is promoting? I have it on my blog. Pretty pathetic!

    Thank you for your expositor, I love it!
    till His nets are full

    Brian,

    I have reviewed the video clips. Can you give me info that links the Steve Colbert clips to Youth Specialities?

    There are churches that are unbiblical because they refuse to make changes and are hindering the Gospel because of it. That does not mean the Purpose Driven model is the answer in each situation. A pastor seeking to invoke any major change should do it with elder board approval.

    There has never been a major change in a church without a few folks disagreeing. I think Farah is right that lay folks should be heard and leadership should be in agreement. Overzealous pastors quick to concentrate on numerical growth would do better to focus on spiritual growth before they try any major changes.

    Side note: Must Farah have those ads with the “hot babe” models in the t-shirts. If it is just me, tell me, but it seems like the “Target” type models would be better.
