Couldnt resist one last article. Purpose Driven Pornography

I got this email alert even as Im packing.
I coulndt resist printing it.
Frankly I dont think Warren has the guts to call Murdoch out on the carpet.
It would be bad for Warrens business and new religion.
From my brother in the Lord Chris Rosebrough-

Rick Warren, Purpose-Driven Pornography?Contact: Chris Rosebrough, 949-218-7565, chris@extremetheology.com



ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., May 4 /Christian Newswire/ -- Chris Rosebrough, who heads the Christian Accountability Network, and authors the blogs ExtremeTheology.com and ALittleLeaven.com, is calling on Pastor Rick Warren, author of the Purpose-Driven Life to discipline media mogul, Rupert Murdoch for owning and expanding a network of pornographic channels in Europe.

Said Rosebrough, "Rupert Murdoch is a born-again Christian and Rick Warren claims to be his pastor. As a Christian, Murdoch is committing an egregious sin by owning, expanding and profiting from pornographic channels and Rick Warren, as his pastor, has a Biblical duty to call Murdoch to repentance and/or put him out of the church."

"Sadly, Murcdoch's actions have already damaged his credibility as a Christian" said Rosebrough. "If Pastor Warren does not act swiftly and call on Murdoch to dismantle his porn distribution network, then the credibility of the Christian message will be compromised around the globe."

According to Rosebrough, "This is a clear case of a Christian openly committing a monstrous and unthinkable sin. The Bible clearly states in 1 Corinthians 5 that when a Christian brother is openly and unrepentantly engaging in sins of this magnitude the church must discipline that person. As his Pastor, Rick Warren has a Biblical duty to call Murdoch to repentance for this sin and/or put him out of the church."

Some speculate that the reason that Warren hasn't already acted on this is because Murdoch's News Corp owns Zondervan, the company that published Warren's run away best seller The Purpose-Driven Life. Said Rosebrough, "Warren and Zondervan are currently working on an updated and revised edition of the Purpose Driven Church. That book is scheduled to be released later this year. We hope that Warren's business ties to Murdoch's company haven't clouded his judgement and impacted his resolve to carry out his Biblical duty as Murdoch's Pastor."

I read Warren's Purpose Driven Church some years ago. To me it all sounded like a sales pitch for Jesus. I believe in evangelism, but I don't believe Jesus was a salesman. So I never really liked Pastor Warren's approach and never bought into his pitch. If all these things are true, then he should make an effort to come out clean. But I'm afraid he is already too deep with the rest of the controversies that surround him in regard to his courtship with the UN and other organizations. This is all so regretable. The God of Israel was and is a jelous God. He dispises adultery of any kind, but today's Christian Church at large have become so watery, so adultarated. Where will we go? Ezekiel 34:10 reads, "Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves anymore; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them."
