The gospel according to Rick


I recently read a really good article titled "The Gospel: A Method Or A Message? How The Purpose Driven Life Obscures The Gospel by Bob DeWaay. I would encourage you to read it here is the link.

two other good articles about the gospel according to Rick-
http://www.svchapel.org/Resources/Articles/read_articles.asp?ID=112
http://www.bereanbeacon.org/articles/rick_warren_purpose_driven_2.htm
Warren goes through great pains to search for any translation that will say what Rick wants to say .
In Warrens (not Gods) promotion of church covenants notice this.
2. I WILL SHARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF MY CHURCH...By praying for its growth...By inviting the unchurched to attend...By warmly welcoming those who visit"To the church ... we always thank God for you and pray for you constantly." 1 Thess. 1:2"The Master said to the servant, 'Go out to the roads and country lanes, and urge the people there to come so my house will be full.'" Luke 14:23 (NCV)"So, warmly welcome each other into the church, just as Christ has warmly welcomed you; then God will be glorified." Rom. 15:7 (LB)

The Living Bible is the only translation that uses the words 'into the church' its not even refered to in this manner in the apostate translation "The Message."
But Rick only uses the translations that say what Rick wants to say.
here is the verse "Wherefore recieve ye one another, as Christ also recieved us to the glory of God."
Doesnt quite make the same point Rick is trying to make.
We cant take scripture and bend it into what we want it to say. We need to bend our knee to Gods word and let it transform us not visa versa.

We all need to be good Bereans these days and check to see if what is being preached is the truth. And not truth mixed with false teaching-because that is not truth at all.
