Rick Warren to Start New Radio Show; Aims to Focus on Hope, Religious Freedom
Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., announced Tuesday that he will begin a radio show the first week of April.
Warren said at a media gathering at Georgetown University today that he is doing the show to bring hope to a country that is in a discouragement period and that he wants to speak out more about the deterioration of religious freedom in the United States and around the world.
The show will be syndicated through Salem Communications and air for half an hour, Monday through Friday, in the 25 largest radio markets, he said at a press gathering hosted by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs' Religious Freedom Project at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C....
..... now children, drink your flouride and be passified. speak sweetly with a big cheeky teethy smile. that is what an evangelist is.... a salesman.
you heard it here.... the job of the Christian..... is.... to be nice. to be happy. the job of the pastor is to be a cheerleader. put on the pompoms and do a cheer, repeat these words after me.
"I say, we, we are, we are special"
What is truth when there is a show to perform? Christian elders are performers! Put on your tap shoes and make a little happy beat. We have a world dying in sin and they've got to see how happy you are.
focus on hope. let it come from the depths of yourself and your greatest efforts straight from the heart of the natural man.
don't feel sad when your neighbor falls into poverty and homelessness..... join the club and join in the "who has the biggest smile" contest. come on america, put your donations in the plate. we've got to save africa. give them pills. give them needles. that will make them super healthy and super deeply spiritual people like us westerners. 47 million on foodstamps, endless adventures with a side of extreme marytdom, joblessness, college debt, blue gloves disarming grandpa at the airport, let's export this.... let's call it hope, change, and being nice.
"People are far more rude now than they used to be," Warren said, which he attributes to the way Americans communicate with each other on the Internet. "Our civilization is losing its civility. We just don't know how to be nice to people."
Here you are America.
For free!! Rick is going to teach you how to communicate, how to be civil, AND how to be nice to each other.
Now, whenever I hear Mr Warren's name, Mr Olsteen's, or any of those guys, I consider their wild popularity and success. I wonder, in todays world, can any born again Christian truly be admired by such a large following and be treated so well by the various media outlets? Can a true born again, bible believing Christian who lives, breaths, and teaches God's word really reach this level of popularity in this world without comprimise? My point is that for a born agai. Christian, he sure seems to have an enormous amount of approval. I consider Jesus who had more enemies than friends because He spoke the truth, not telling the masses what their Itching ears wanted to hear.
