The very fact that we are writing comments that cannot state his position uneqivocally is a testament that he is a FRAUD as a Christian and pastor. Who is loved among you that loves Christ? Christ said you shall be persecuted for his name sake. Not that the press misquoted you and now you worry about the ratings or your newest book or DVD's sales. If Warren's doctrine was so sound and his heart in the right place. All that purpose drive garbage would be free and available to the masses. We need some sound doctrine not another self-help Guru. Try reading the Puritians, Spurgeon and my favorite Martyn Lloyd Jones and get weaned off this weak kneed Christianty that Ricky proposes
So what are we supposed to do? Well God's word is clear do not be unequally yoked. See we can't have it both ways if Christians really and truly take this stand we need to leave the public schools. Create or Join Christain schools that are affordable, home schooling's fine but they are picking away at that. Make sure the schools are structured to meet the state's graduation and college entrance requirements. I forget the name but in California (of all places) there is a school district that is all Christian schools. Right! a whole school district of Christian schools. Remember God told Lot to leave Sodom not to stay because he new the influence it had ala Lot's wife.
The ignorance of the Bible is unbelievable. In Jesus time men and women wore garments which were more kin to a robe. Pants came into existence because of work that was being performed. So if you think what you are wearing will get you to Heaven you need to go back and check you Theology.
Folks we need to really pray for this nation. We have the making of a Socialistic Government brewing before our eyes. Obama is in ultimate denial. Ok Dafur did'nt happen Muslim slave trade did happen oh yeah the beheading of Americans in Iraq by the those friendly loving Muslims is all a figment of the Right wing of American politics. Some are making the comparison to Hitler. Hey it was the same set-up world in turmoil, world looking for a savior and not God. Let look what pops up.
This gives a whole new meaning to fair and balanced. Boy which ever the way the wind blows will be the policy of the day in the Obama Nation. Let me get this we have a Secular Preacher Rick Warren giving the invocation and Gay Pastor invocating some party event. What could more representative of America? The Obama team will be jerking his chain on every issue for the next four years the man will not have an original thought. It will all be special interest diatribe.
How can this remind him of slavery? Was he a slave or a descendant of slavery? This is way America is polarized today. Because both sides just can't let go. We are never going to end hatred and bigotry until Christ comes back. We have the Palastinians and Jews going at it for thousands of years. The cure for hate is a contrite and broken heart which God takes and renews.
It is not about freedom of religion but knowing God. My point is those who think prayer in schools will some how translate into a better society is wrong. Christian's should be transforming lives not institutions. Jesus nor Paul overturned the governments of their times. But they converted citizens of that government. Was it great when as a nation we all had a healthy fear of the LORD YES. But as we see currently as a whole the nation has turned it back on GOD. They elected a president which I pray for daily who's beliefs border on insanity when held up to biblical scrunity.
And we were worried about the spreading of abortions. After all the politco. God used evil for good and shut down their resources using their own greed. God works in mysterious ways and wonders to be performed.
This would be comical if it were not true. Ok let me get this, children whose parents are paying their way through school have the right to unbridle fornication because the voted on it. So how many daycare centers do they propose to open because of the pregnancies that will follow. Just because Johnny want's a gun at three do we have a family vote and give Johnny a loaded gun. Falling, falling into iniquity so next it will be gay people and pedophile mascarading as students.
We have come to the end of the road for slick Rick. We all knew something was amiss in tha aroma of Starbucks in the lobby and the preaching at Saddle Back. The large crowds fawning over his ever unbiblical word. We are in times that the Church will be a renamant and the believers will suffer great persecution for Jesus namesake. Get ready because they have declared war with God by the vileness of their conversations
Folks using the Christmas theme as a backdrop to leave the public schools is ignorant. As all educated people know Christmas is a pagan holiday. It's like the term Christan Hip Hop or Christian Rock. Anything that starts in the world is of the father of lies and deception satan. If you think that you will separate out wickedness by removing a child from public schools then what we are saying is we do not trust God for the salvation of our children. You can't educate God into the lives of children. My child attends a private school which is a denominaton that is not of the same as mine. But the reason he goes there is we made a concious decision as a family to give him the best education we could. So we sacrafice. We have seen some of the same issue at his school that public schools experience. That's why it is the fathers responsibility to ensure his family is adhering to the faith and being the family priest.
Amen Brother. Either family members or the Church should support our own. That brings up another point. Should Christians follow the example in the book of Acts 4:32 And the multititude of them that BELIEVED were of one heart and one soul neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own but they had all things in common. 34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them and brought the prices of the things that were sold. We are admonished to take care of the widows and fatherless.
The hand writing is on the wall. Brown says they are a protected class guess what they will be. Under the new administration they will push to get this passed. The problem is that white males and females who live in that debased life style can actually act heterosexual and then claim discrimination. Which would be false and deceptive. Where as Blacks, and other people of color can not hide the fact of how they were born.
I wonder if these parents have equipped their children with enough biblical training to look at this as an opportunity to witness. College is going to test their faith much more so they might as well get ready for the onslaught of pagan and cultic practices and learn how to defend the Faith. God Bless
The amazing part about this Administration is the lack of "Blackness" for all the Black Americans that really toiled, cheated and sweated to get this media darling into office they have nothing to show for their efforts. One key appointee the Attorney General this reminds me of the hiring of Black college coaches. We can still sing and dance ask Aretha. What happen to TD Jakes did not Time run a cover story calling him the next Billy Graham and that article was written by a white writer. As stated Rick Warren will compromise the Gospel to exploit the opportuntiy to be in the spotligh.
Is God really in Christmas and as one of the comments stated. The best thing we can do is not fight over manger and nativity scenes. Just stop having them. Stop pretending that we are celebrating Christ by buying gifts and being used to prop up deparment stores sales for the season. What would happend if all the Christians celebrated on a day in the middle of the week in June and used vacation time etc. This would really show satan we meant business. But as it stands we look ignorant celebrating winter solitce. Personally, I have Christmas daily everyday that I pray, read my bible, study the doctrines and witness to others I am celebrating Christmas daily.
The funniest part of the interview if you folks did not catch it was that he believes God sent his son. To believe in the incarnation takes more literalism and faith than saying you believe or don't believe the book of Jonah. George Bush is a Christian who has never had Biblical teaching.
Check it out all Native Americans (in my day Indians) if we remove every symbol of Native American life then your Heritage and Culture will be lost and you will only be known for the sparkling casinos on Native American soil. We are currently debating removing the name Indian from High Schools in Tennessee. Somebody will surely forget the trail of tears because there will be no visible reminders.
