Rick Warren and Oprah talk about purpose in life

Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren, who recently re-released his New York Times bestseller, "The Purpose Driven Life," for the online generation, on Sunday joins Oprah Winfrey for a second episode of her show, "Oprah's Lifeclass."

On the show, Winfrey will talk with the mega-church pastor and address life's biggest questions: 'What on earth am I here for?' and 'What is my purpose?' Warren and Winfrey will discuss the three levels of existence: survival, success and significance, and how to start living with more purpose. The show will also include an update on Ashley Smith via Skype, who in 2005 survived being held hostage by the Atlanta Spree Killer after reading Warren's book to him.

Warren was first interviewed by Winfrey in September 2005, when he and Smith met to talk about the impact Warren's book had had on her release. In March 2005, the book was propelled into the national news when ...

more low calorie drizzle. tastes like the real thing but isn't. Oprah had a lot more pizazz, if that counts for anything of eternal value (not). I reject global freudian warrenism with a pinch of Jesus because it does not save. The woman who lost her kids can now "forgive" the drunk driver without ever knowing the One who forgave her of her sins on the cross. What good is that?

If the grieving mother ever reads this, I would say to her that the answers are found in Christ. The Holy Spirit speaks to the Father in our grieving.... and this, the world does not have. You can have all the self help books in the world, I will keep my Christ. A peace that surpasses understanding.

It would look to the casual observer that Rick's purpose is to save the planet and write books about it, whereas Oprah's seems more about losing weight, gaining weight, losing weight, and writing books about it.

It is well.

It reminded me of last night's study on the following verse:

John 14:31 KJV
31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

Interesting that here we have the one reference in which Jesus points out his love for the Father. And that this love was proven by his submission to the commandment his Father gave. Namely, the sacrifice of the cross. And that the main motivation of Jesus oblation was love and submission to his Father, and only secondarily the result of such an action. It made me think quite deeply. And I cannot put into words my thoughts. But I realise that if applied to the work of the church, individually or corporately, things would be different, and we should all the more glorify God and enjoy him better.
