 Rick Warren and Robert Murdock

I hope some one will tell me this story is not true.....I checked out the links given at the end of the article and they confirm this articles' thesis.

Oddly enough, this morning I was reading in Ezekiel 16 and the message God gave to Ezekiel sound like he was talking to moderns, like Rick Warren, Robert Murdock, et al.

So, what else is new?

Rick Warren, Purpose-Driven Pornography?
ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., May 4 /Christian Newswire/ -- Chris Rosebrough, who heads the Christian Accountability Network, and authors the blogs ExtremeTheology.com and ALittleLeaven.com, is calling on Pastor Rick Warren, author of the Purpose-Driven Life to discipline media mogul, Rupert Murdoch for owning and expanding a network of pornographic channels in Europe.

Said Rosebrough, "Rupert Murdoch is a born-again Christian and Rick Warren claims to be his pastor. As a Christian, Murdoch is committing an egregious sin by owning, expanding and profiting from pornographic channels and Rick Warren, as his pastor, has a Biblical duty to call Murdoch to repentance and/or put him out of the church."

"Sadly, Murcdoch's actions have already damaged his credibility as a Christian" said Rosebrough. "If Pastor Warren does not act swiftly and call on Murdoch to dismantle his porn distribution network, then the credibility of the Christian message will be compromised around the globe."

According to Rosebrough, "This is a clear case of a Christian openly committing a monstrous and unthinkable sin. The Bible clearly states in 1 Corinthians 5 that when a Christian brother is openly and unrepentantly engaging in sins of this magnitude the church must discipline that person. As his Pastor, Rick Warren has a Biblical duty to call Murdoch to repentance for this sin and/or put him out of the church."

Some speculate that the reason that Warren hasn't already acted on this is because Murdoch's News Corp owns Zondervan, the company that published Warren's run away best seller The Purpose-Driven Life. Said Rosebrough, "Warren and Zondervan are currently working on an updated and revised edition of the Purpose Driven Church. That book is scheduled to be released later this year. We hope that Warren's business ties to Murdoch's company haven't clouded his judgement and impacted his resolve to carry out his Biblical duty as Murdoch's Pastor."

 Re: Rick Warren and Robert Murdock

Unfortunately, this is the kind of news that will bring varying comments from Christians who will give 'opinions' rather than having a sound Biblical stance on the matter.

Oh well, let battle commence.

God bless.

 Re: Rick Warren and Robert Murdock

I'm amazed that anyone would think that Rupert Murdcoh is a born again Christian. Surely his life demonstrates that it is simply not true. Seriously, where does the idea come from that Murdoch is born again?

Simple: From other false brethren.

You are right.

Professing Christ does not a Christian make. Many have been told they are Christians and most of the Christians they know act just as un-Godly as they do…so almost any and all actions can be justified by them.

A false Gospel has been preached for a very long time; a Gospel that will have devils convinced of their salvation.

 Re:

I can see how people would think that Rupert Murdoch is a born again Christian... especially if they view salvation the way Rick Warren does.

By the way, he's not. As far as I know, he's never even claimed to be.

I agree with Krispy, adding only this:

Quote:
Matthew 8:22 Jesus said, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

Click on the links given on the bottom of the original aricle. You should be able to pull them up. At least I could when I posted it.

EDIT: I just tried pulling up the last link and I get a window saying "Service Unavailable". I even tried it from the original email I got. I am no whiz in circumventing a message like this...sorry, I cannot help you.
