Rick Warren sends E-mails to all of his “flock” and associates urging them to email the president to sign on to U2 frontman Bono’s "One Campaign", forgive billions in African debt, and send billions in aid to Africa without the Gospel.
"Debt forgiveness rewards the corruption and inefficiency of governments who have mishandled loaned funds," writes the editorial board of the Kairos Journal in a letter sent June 6 to Mr.Warren and (annihilationist heretic) Mr. Stott, along with others. "In forgiving the debt of poor nations, we’re not forgiving the debts of those nation’s poor; we’re merely enabling bureaucratic perfidy and incompetence." 6/21/05: Whose Jubilee? – World Magazine
When appearing on the Oprah show Sept 28, 2005 Warren plugged his book but didn’t say a word to Oprah about her destructive teachings.
Warren now over rules God himself and decides that homosexual behavior is not as bad as incest or being a child molester. Melissa Etheridge’s statement below confirms his view.
“I told my manager to reach out to Pastor Warren and say ‘In the spirit of unity I would like to talk to him.’ They gave him my phone number. On the day of the conference I received a call from Pastor Rick, and before I could say anything, he told me what a fan he was. He had most of my albums from the very first one. What? This didn’t sound like a gay hater, much less a preacher. He explained in very thoughtful words that as a Christian he believed in equal rights for everyone. He believed every loving relationship should have equal protection. He struggled with proposition 8 because he didn’t want to see marriage redefined as anything other than between a man and a woman. He said he regretted his choice of words in his video message to his congregation about proposition 8 when he mentioned pedophiles and those who commit incest. He said that in no way, is that how he thought about gays. He invited me to his church; I invited him to my home to meet my wife and kids. He told me of his wife’s struggle with breast cancer just a year before mine.” (Jan 9th, The Huffington Post p.1)
Mr. Warren launched his Global P.E.A.C.E plan coaxing millions of dollars from Christians by telling them that the P stood for ‘Planting Churches’; then he changed it to ‘Participation’, and finally he changed it to ‘Promoting Reconciliation’.
He started the launch of his Global Peace plan by singing the hit song by Jimi Hendrix – “Purple Haze” – a song about a man taking LSD.
Rick Warren’s path is a road that leads to destruction – Period.
Behind a façade of good works, he betrays the heart of why true Christians have been persecuted for 2000 years: Exclusivity! It’s not Jesus plus all the other gods!
Salvation is through the righteous work and atonement of Jesus who alone has the power to save anyone.
Even more frightening is this statement from an Aug. 07, 2008 article in Time Magazine:
"My confidence is not that I’ve got it all figured out. My confidence is, Jesus said, ‘Do these five things’ and we’ve got the people out there."
Does Rick Warren equate his P.E.A.C.E plan with the words of Christ himself? This is scary indeed! We must conclude that the reason Rick Warren is accepted and loved by so many would be his brand of hybridized global designer religion with a flaky outer crust of Christianity a filling of New Age mixed liberally with a social gospel, a sprinkling of Islam, and just a pinch of Judaism. We end up with a recipe for a Shepherds’ Pie of Apostasy, a Christianized universalism that masquerades as genuine Christianity.
Warren told Wolfson his interest is in helping all houses of worship, not in converting Jews. He said,
“There are more than enough Christian souls to deal with for starters.”
Amos 3:3 “Shall two walk together, except they have agreed?”
Rick Warren said this in an address to the American Islamic community:
“You don’t have to see eye to eye to walk hand in hand."
God’s word says "What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? … Therefore, come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord" (2 Cor. 6:15-17).
We must be clear there is but one road that leads to salvation, and it is the narrow path of which Jesus spoke. It is a contrite heart and the influence and renewing of the Holy Spirit enabling a real turning from the world and sin that is proof of salvation. Our good works do not violate God’s Word–they flow out of a true change of heart, not from external peer pressure to compromise in order to do more good.
I could have gone on with many more pages outlining the departure from God’s word by Mr.Warren. If what you have read is not enough to concern you and stir your interest in further research, neither would another twenty pages.
