In case you’ve gossiped against Rick Warren…

It seems that any time a Pastor or other Christian has the spotlight hit them, there are many people, Christian and unbelieving, who seem almost eager to turn that spotlight into a negative light (look at these POSITIVE articles on Tim Tebow, & Jeremy Lin as better examples).  Case in point for this post is Pastor Rick Warren.  He was recently quoted as saying that Christians and Muslims worship the same god.

Well?  Did he really say that?

You can read an excellent article on the subject HERE – and see what Rick really said.

But it also brings up a “soapbox” of mine…

Christians… get your facts straight, lest you pass along a lie!

Not to do so may lead you into the realm of slander (which is dishonoring to Christ), or gossip (which is also dishonoring to Christ).  Not to mention that the New Testament says such things should not be in existence among believers!

So… when you get that next email/spam that fearfully claims Obama said this, or Rick Warren said that, or the Pope is up to such and such… research before passing it along.  We, of all people, should NOT be guilty of inciting any kind of panic or fear… we have the eternal hope and goodness of Christ under girding our lives after all!

  1. This is so true. It’s unfortunate that we almost go on a witch hunt, looking for ways to defame any pastors that may have a lot of influence. But most of the time, the gossip is just plain untrue.

  2. Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Saddle-Back Ministry is a Deception
    He is an agent of Change, most likely controlled by The Jesuits or by the Freemasons his mentor Robert Shuller is a 33Degree Mason,
    Saddle-back is using The Hegelian effect in there Churches to make people unite on what they can agree on, as opposed to keeping their fundamental doctrines, Interestingly enough You can see His Books being pushed in Churches All over the World and find his Books even In Secular peoples Homes, He is Also writing Books For Catholic priests to Read
    The Bible is thrown to the Side Its very Hard to Read when your swinging your arms around and being all emotional
    (which is what his purpose driven ministry seems to focus on)

    ‘For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.'{Romans 16:18}

    Ricks aim is to Unite the worlds religions (using spiritual formation) under the guise of peace for the papacy to usher in the Coming “Cosmic Christ” or “Maitreya” Being, Who some may guess will Be “Lucifer/Satan” in disguise.

    “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1 Thessalonians 5:3

    Do Find Rick Warren Very Fascinating just not in any Good Way 😉

    • Hi Albert, and thanks for your participation.

      Your comments illustrate exactly what I was pointing out. Your beliefs have no substantiation as there has never been any connection established between Warren and the organizations you mention. Though I can’t say I’m a friend of Warrens, I have met the man once years ago and have no doubt as to his allegiance to Christ and His church. You are welcome to comment on my blog, but I will not approve any further comments that slander a person as you have done.
