Rick Warren, The Law of Attraction, The Secret…more heresy

from Watchers Lamp….

…As your vision for your church becomes more specific, you’ll find that it is magnetic – it will pull you toward it and pull other people toward it too. – Rick Warren’s Ministry Tool box, June 23. 2010.

Rick Warren’s advice mirrors the new age Gnosticism found within the pages of "The Secret". Warren instructs the reader to find a quiet place and talk to God about your ministry. Keep a journal of what He tells you.
Really? Awaiting extra-biblical revelation direct from God? Warren makes no mention of reading of the scriptures or testing of the spirits during this quiet time.
Warren encourages the use of a journal during the session, and so do the proponents of The Law of Attraction.

    “The Secret” has had a great impact on me. And I’m sure there’s something from the Bible in it. It deals with the faith which never fails. It’s always here. And when you trust and never doubt, the results are sure to appear.

    That Rick Warren is using terminology and instructions that mirror The Secret is most troubling. There is absolutely nothing biblical about The Secret, popularized by Rhonda Byrne and promoted by Oprah Winfrey and, sadly, by some professing Christians. The tenets of The Secret are foreign to the Word of God but are right at home with the matephysical cults – particularly New Age, Gnosticism, and New Thought. Rick Warren yet again leads his unsuspecting followers into a profoundly dangerous place – that of more reliance upon subjective feelings, emotions, and desires of the human heart and less reliance upon the one inerrant, reliable and objective source of Truth, the Bible. See Romans 16:17-18; 2 Tim. 4:3-4; 2 Peter 2:1-3.

    “That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9

    All we need is a little church history. Back in the 1900’s there was what was referred to as “The Oxford Group Movement” AKA “Buchmanism” because the founder was a man named Dr. Frank Buchman.

    Pastor H.A. Ironside contended for the faith against the unbiblical movement in a paper entitled “The Oxford Group Movement: Is it Scriptural?
    http://www.orange-papers.org/orange-Ironside.html One of the famous offspring of this particular movement was A.J. Russell who was responsible for editing the book “God Calling”. The book contained so many anti-biblical teachings (the two “listeners” journaling as if they were receiving messages from Jesus Himself) compelled me to write a thorough review along with my friend Dwayna Litz that you can read posted on @ http://www.lighthousetrails.com back on 2/7/2010. From generation to generation things just get repackaged in bigger, brighter, wrapping, but the same root of evil is the genesis.

    May God bless your endevours to warn the sheep. In Christ alone. Charisse Graves
