RICK WARREN REALLY A CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN?
- The Wall Street Journal said “rev. Rick Warren…is AMERICA’S PASTOR
AND A leader of the conservative Christians”
Saturday, December 19, 2008, By STEVEN WALDMAN
Question? Is Rick Warren really a
conservative Christian? A conservative
Christian defined as one who believes in the inerrancy of the Bible.
On May 23, 2005, Rick Warren was a
guest speaker at The Pew and
Religious Forum. Here is what he said regarding the
fundamentals of Christianity:
“Today there really aren’t that many Fundamentalists left;
I don’t know if you
know that or not, but they are such a minority; there aren’t that
Fundamentalists left in America. Now the word “Fundamentalist”
from a document in the 1920’s called The Five Fundamentals of the Faith. And it
is a very legalistic, narrow view of Christianity.”
These are The Five Fundamentals of the
he is referring to:
1. The Deity
of our Lord Jesus Christ
2. The Virgin
3. The Blood
4. The Bodily
Inerrancy of the Scriptures
Rick Warren says that these fundamentals are “a very legalistic,
narrow view of
Christianity.” It is apparent that he is determined to re-define
Christianity, and lead it away from the precepts of the Bible. The author of the PDL is a
Baptist pastor. He has taken a stand against Fundamentalist Christianity and contrary to
fundamentalist Baptist beliefs.
How can one be a conservative Christian who does not
believe in these Fundamentals? His
viewpoint is that of modernist and liberal theologian.
RICK WARREN AND THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
In Rick Warren's best selling book
THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE, p. 285, Rick Warren says, "JESUS SAID THE DETAILS OF MY
RETURN ARE NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS." There is
absolutely no truth in this statement according to Matthew 24. In this chapter
Jesus gives many details regarding the end times and His return. If you are not
familiar with what Jesus said about the end times you will not be prepared for
what is coming. Jesus told us so that we would not be caught unaware and so
that when we see these things we can be comforted by the scriptures and be
RICK WARREN AND THE GAY COMMUNITY
There has been great controversy because Rick Warren
was asked to
pray at the 2009 Presidential Inauguration. The controversy is because the new President
is for civil unions and was strongly backed by the gay community and Rick Warren campaigned against gay marriage in California in 2008. An Episcopal Gay bishop also was invited to pray at the inauguration.
Question? How does this line up with Rick Warren’s
overall activity? Is he just reaching
across the aisle or is there more to it and a hidden agenda?
WSJ Saturday, December 19, 2009 said this about Rick
“He started by
acknowledging that divorce is a much bigger threat to the American family than
gay marriage -- and chiding fellow conservatives for focusing on gay
marriage more. He also said he supported civil partnership laws, a
position which just got a top official fired from the National Association of Evangelicals. And later in the
interview he said that Christianity has been harmed by religious conservatives
focusing too much on politics.”
didn’t stop with that in his oratory before the Muslim gathering. He then began
to assure his audience that he is a “huge” fan of gay activist and
singer, Melissa Etheridge, who had performed earlier that evening, and
announced that he has all her albums. He went farther to disclose that Ms.
Etheridge has even signed her Christmas album for him!
Rick was in overdrive to prove his pro-gay credentials after the
negative press from some radical activists who don’t like his presence at
Obama’s Inaugural blow-out.
Rick Warren has clarified his position on
gays saying He is not against homosexuality just against homosexual marriage
and pedophilia. Is that Conservative Biblical
I want to warn readers. Rick Warren, the master of the dialectic
method, is on an extremely clever public relations campaign. He is moving on to
his next phase—the political one. You may have read Warren’s quote
this week that the “social gospel is Marxism in Christian clothing.”
Really, Rick? There is absolutely nothing so effective in the bottomless bag of
tricks of our emerging cultural architects than this ploy. Nobody
better embodies the social gospel than Rick Warren. For years, he has
been exposed for promoting exactly that—helping people externally minus the
exclusive Gospel of Jesus Christ. Yet here we have the man who has done
more to further the social gospel than any other, actually decrying the “social
gospel.” Why does he do this? It’s the sleight of tongue that causes his
followers to relax, to believe that after all, “Rick Warren would not mislead

He uses 15 translations of

RICK WARREN’S CONNECTION WITH NEW AGE LEADERS.
On page 31 of his Purpose Drive Life book, Rick
Warren quotes Bernie Siegel, a major New Age leader. Bernie Siegel is connected to Gerald Jampolsky and Neal Donald
Walsh who openly say that the days of believing in an exclusive savior are
over. If he is a ‘conservative’
Christian, why would he be quoting New Age leaders who do not believe in the
divinity of Jesus Christ nor that Jesus is the only savior of the world? (See
sources at the bottom of the article for documentation).
RICK WARREN IS TRANSFORMING THE CHURCH FROM BEING
A SPIRITUAL INSTITUTION INTO BEING A SOCIAL INSTITUTION.
In Rwanda, he said he was going
to TRANSFORM THE CHURCHES into institutions of feeding the poor; education; and
places for medical treatment. These are
all noble causes, but that it is not the main purpose of the church. He is literally
using humanitarianism as a bait to change churches from being spiritual institutions
into social institutions. He also is luring the bishops and pastors
with money and promising them ‘church growth’. This is corrupting the bishops and pastors. To receive his aid
there are strings attached though.
Pastors have to come under his tutelage to be retrained with his brand
of PURPOSE DRIVEN Christianity and follow his guidelines. He boasts of retraining hundreds of
thousands of pastors worldwide. He is
literally reprogramming the pastors and bishops to think like him and his allies
who are behind the scene. This is one reason WSJ called him ‘America’s Pastor’. The reality is that he is not only reprogramming
pastors in America, he is doing this worldwide. We know because we live in Africa and have seen what he is doing
there first hand.
Much of the funds of his work
are connected to “Faith Based” types of programs funded by some governments. He is the front man not only of governments
but also of some wealthy philanthropists.
He is also getting many churches to flow their missions funds through
him. It has been said that whoever controls the gold makes the rules. So if much of the funds are coming from
political sources and secular charity organizations, that means
‘non-Christians’ who are helping fund him, will be involved in making the rules
and call the shots about what will be taught in the churches. REMEMBER, YOU DON’T GET SOMETHING FOR
NOTHING! Government and secular donors, using him, are trying to takeover the
churches and use them to implement their political and ideological agendas. Missions has basically been transformed from
winning the lost to humanitarianism.
In an area where we built many
churches in Africa, one of our pastors told us that NGO’s came to their
villages and told the pastors that they wanted to work through them to
distribute food to the people. The
pastors were excited, but there was a hitch. They said that a condition to
having the humanitarian aid flow through them was that they could continue preaching
about God but not about Jesus.
Humanitarian work is good if
there are no strings attached, but unfortunately often it has a hook in it. The way you catch a fish is to offer free
food, but the fish doesn’t realize that the free meal will cost him his life. All he thinks about is that he can get an
easy meal and fill his belly. In the
same vein, too often pastors must accept to be reprogrammed and follow the
donors’ rules to receive aid. Rick
Warren knows that the way to catch the poor is to offer free food, but the
condition to receive it is that these poor people must accept his New
Christianity. We believe in
humanitarianism, but from what we have seen, the humanitarian motive here is
not pure. The main purpose of the
church is not social work but to be a place to teach people about Jesus; get
people saved and to teach them God’s Word showing them how to live a godly and
RICK WARREN A MAN ON AN ASSIGNMENT?
Rick Warren is a globalist. His PDL book wreaks with globalism. He is a master at double speak, bait and switch. He does this on many issues and literally
redefines many scriptures. I believe he
is a man on an assignment whose purpose is to cunningly move the conservative
Christians into the liberal theological Christian and political camps. I believe his purpose is to neutralize
conservative Christianity so it will not be an obstruction to the U.N.’s , New
Age’s , and liberals global agenda. He
is definitely a PURPOSE DRIVEN man.
issue is that no matter what nation he is working in, he is always working with
their political leaders as well as their religious leaders. Why are the political leaders of nearly
every nation and even world leaders working with him, a ‘Christian’ pastor, when most of these national leaders are not
Christians themselves? In reality it
appears his job is to unite Church and State again like it was in old England
and how it is today in Saudi Arabia.
When this is done, then there would only be one church, the State
Church, like they have in China
today. The State then would control
the Church and its belief system. Freedom of religion will then be dead. Rick Warren has also been connected with
the U.N. which is a godless, antichrist organization. He has participated in interfaith prayer meetings at the U.N.
with Muslims, Hindus, etc. No real
conservative Christian would join in prayer meetings with those who do not
believe in the divinity of Christ.
Question? In light of all the evidence, why is the
Wall Street Journal, a major secular newspaper, anointing Rick Warren as the
leader of Christian conservatives?
Why would the world be promoting him as the representative of the
conservative Christian arm of Christianity? The reality is that he is not a
Christian conservative. He is a liberal
Conservative Bible believing Christians must not by duped
by this. A Christianity that is not
founded solely on the Bible is not Christianity at all. The deliberate dumbing down of Christianity seems to be
HIS PURPOSE. If we don’t wake up, true biblical Christianity will be finished. That is the plan.
