It's an all-star conference set for the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, Calif., Jan. 17-19. Former President George H.W. Bush will speak. Chuck Colson will make a presentation. Larry King will be there. Rupert Murdoch will address attendees. Ben Stein will appear. And Kay Warren, wife of Saddleback Church mega-pastor Rick Warren, will join Robert Schuller, the white-haired, bespectacled purveyor of "possibility thinking."
What could such a diverse group have in common? What's the topic?
Well, it's a little vague.
It's called the "Rethink Conference," and Schuller promises 30 "Aha!" moments from the 30 different speakers confirmed for the event....
Geee! Just that list of names sounds scary to me. I would not want to be caught dead at that event. Birds of a feather gather together? I always felt uncomfortable with Rick Warren, now I am starting to understand why. Too bad his books are such a blast all over the evangelical world.
Brother Gil brings out a very important characteristic of false teachers and cults: â€śOne characteristic of false teachers is that they will speak our language and use our terminology, but they will subtly sneak in meanings that are false.â€ť
We should always insist that terms be defined when discussing beliefs with false teachers such as the Romanists (and other dangerous heretics) on this forum.
Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheepâ€™s clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves. 16By their fruits ye shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but the corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20Therefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Robert Schuller and his breed.
