Maybe that you are a good charmer?

Or, you know how to get along with people of diverse opinions?

Or, that you are not obnoxious?

Or, that you are kind?

Or....?

 Re:

Josef83,

Thank you very much for posting this. After listening to this you can see without a doubt that Rick Warren and the Catholic church are on the same page.

Richard Bennett is one of my favorites when it comes to exposing The Emerging Church movement and it's deceptions along with other contemporary error.

Don't expect it to be easy to take a stand for the Word of God, today.

I make it a point to pray not only for men like Warren, Osteen and the list of "emergent" teachers... but also for those who are following these men down a spiritually destructive path.

 Re: Watch and remember.....


Why was Paul innocent from the blood of all men?; because he declared the whole counsel of God..that there is only one way to the Father...through his Son alone.

Inclusion of any other religions or gods, or unholy permissive ways is death. There is much documentation of Warren's Ecumenicalism [ that God is glorified in many religions or social activities], and inclusive faith.

ACTS 20
"Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men.

27 For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.

28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.

29 For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.

30 Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.

31 Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.".........................................

Paul was not inclined to pray for the wolves, but to mark them and expose them for the church to avoid. He called this "shepherding" the flock, by virtue of warning..He did, however, pray and lay his life down for God's people, who were inclined to listen to, and follow the wolves.

 Re:

Hi Tom...

Again, I do not want to be accused of "defending" Rick Warren, his views, his beliefs or anything similar. However, I do think that we need to be both CLEAR and SPECIFIC if we are going to levy such specific allegations.

Do you have specific examples that do not include "connecting the dots" type of conjectures? This would include specific writings, specific statements and views in their proper context. If you choose to gather such information, did you find it yourself or did you depend upon the research and efforts of others?

This is extremely important. If we are going to publicly scrutinize some man and call him a "wolf" in a public forum viewed by believers and nonbelievers alike, then we need to be carefully specific with our allegations.

I have researched many of the allegations about Rick Warren. I even read through some of the comments that were supposedly attributed to him (some falsely) and even contacted his ministry. I was told explicitly that Rick Warren is an evangelical believer and does NOT support some "one world religion" or "ecumenical" goal. After all, there is a difference between a dialog and alignment.

Now, I have seen several unsubstantiated allegations and accusations about the man. Sometimes, people have attempted to substantiate their accusations with a series of dot-connected conjectures derived from supposed "sources" that often go unscrutinized for their validity. Some of those sources are merely conspiracy theory websites that quote people who quote Rick Warren (hearsay).

If we are going to say that Rick Warren believes "such-and-such," then we need to CLEARLY provide evidence (two or three sources) that would establish such an accusation. If we are going to say that Rick Warren is a false prophet, it isn't enough to merely say what we think he believes...or that he is a wolf...or that he teaches heresy. We need to give specific examples (in context) about what he teaches or proclaims and why it is wrong.

After all, we are children of God. We should make sure that everything we say is entirely true. If we endeavor to make an issue of exposing those who are false (or those who we think are false), then we need to do it properly.

 Re:

I did see that he attended a Muslim confrence once, and was asked to speak at it. If he is such a "Godly" man then why would a Muslim confrence invite him to speak? Normally, darkness is very opposed to light.

Here's a link to the story from a newspaper.

(Note this paper is not Christian so it will not look at the matter in the proper light.)

 Re:

Perhaps instead of asking us...or offering conjecture...maybe you should contact his ministry and ask him why he attended (and what he said when he was there)?

 Re:


"Dr. Warren said that Muslims and Christians need to get beyond interfaith dialogue and join together for "interfaith projects."

He stressed that working together does not mean that participants need to compromise their convictions. Muslims and Christians can "walk hand and hand and not see eye to eye" and be "unified without uniformity."

"For many decievers are entered into the world. . .Whatsoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and teh Son. If there come any unto you and bring not this doctrine, revieve him not into your house, neither bid him God speed; For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds" - 2 John 7, 9-11

To "walk hand in hand and not see eye to eye" is a denial of this Scripture. Islam is a great decieving religion, and denies the doctrine of Christ. All I am simply saying, is that Dr. Warren is greatly in the wrong for saying such a thing and needs to spend more time perhaps seeking God's face.
