Why Rick Warren cant preach the cross
But first read Dave Norris article of the cross and then you have to come to the comclusion that Rick Warren cant preach the cross because it would be bad for his buisness, Ricks purpose.
Ricks jesus is different from the Jesus of the Bible as well.
"The religion of the future will be a general converging of religions in a universal Christ that will satisfy all ... In the end, it is hoped that the Christian will become a better Christian and each Hindu a better Hindu." —Jesuit theologian Father Jacques Dupuis, at the 2003 interfaith congress "The Future of God"*
"The Christ has no religious barriers in His consciousness. It matters not to Him of what faith a man may call himself." —Alice Bailey & Djwhal Khul*
"I happen to know people who are followers of Christ in other religions." —Rick Warren*
"He ['the Christ'] inaugurated the new era and ... the new world religion began to take form. The word 'religion' concerns relationship ..." —Alice Bailey & Djwhal Khul*
"I have known many people who believe in the Messiah of Jesus, regardless of what religion they are, because they believe in him. It's about a relationship, not a religion." —Rick Warren*
"The day is dawning when all religions win [sic] be regarded as emanating from one great spiritual source; all will be seen as unitedly providing the one root out of which the universal world religion will inevitably emerge. Then there will be neither Christian nor heathen, neither Jew nor Gentile, but simply one great body of believers, gathered out of all the current religions." —Alice Bailey & Djwhal Khul*
"I thought, you know where people are moving in they probably need new houses of worships, temples, and synagogues, and churches, and stuff like that." —Rick Warren*
"The church is bigger than any organization in the world. Then you add in Muslims, you add in Hindus, you add in all the different religions, and you use those houses of worship as distribution centers, not just for spiritual care but health care." —Rick Warren*
"I could take you today to a million villages ... they got a church. Or they got a synagogue. They got something. They got a house of worship. The church is the biggest organization in the world.... And I came up with a thing called the P.E.A.C.E. Plan. When Jesus sent the disciples out, he said, 'When you go into a village, you find the man of peace.' Now this person doesn't have to be a Christian.... You find the person of peace, and then you begin to do the P.E.A.C.E. Plan ... Now why am I telling this to you? Because we're going public with it this next year in 2006.... And I believe it will change the world." —Rick Warren*

People by now need to know that Rick Warren does not rely on The Holy Spirit but his own earthly wisdom.
Rick said in Purpose Driven Church that he could tell you what kind of people you would attract and effect by the music your church plays.
Ricks agenda is heresy and hogwash at best.
What a lie straight from the pit.
That the Holy Spirit is limited by what music your church plays.
Let me tell you a story.
A rather famous lady years ago related how she got saved. She was listening to the radio and a song came on "Save your heart for me" by Gary Lewis and The Playboys. The Holy Spirit used that song to appeal to her heart and she pulled the car over and asked Jesus into her life.
Well gee I played drums for Gary for several years and played Save your heart hundrds of times and it never was used to save me.
God acts as He will.
Now we make the mistake of seeing one instance and making a thing about it.
So just because God used this song in this one instance does not mean we start playing this song for a altar call.
The same goes for the biblical record of Pauls hankerchiefs being used to heal folk.
The holy hankie hawkers have made quite a profitable trade from this.
So anyway how do you tell the counterfiet?
Fill yourself with so much of Gods word that you see the false instantly.
I have heard a lot of talk of Rick Warren possibly being the antichrist.
Do I think he is?
Well I'll just say this.
John the Baptist announced the coming of our Lord Jesus.
What Jesus do you think Rick Warren is announcing?
