Rick Warren's Son Takes Own Life After Lifelong Battle With Mental Illness
The 27-year-old son of Pastor Rick Warren has taken his own life after a lifelong struggle with mental illness. The internationally known Christian leader at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., made the announcement about his son early Saturday morning in an email sent to his staff.

"No words can express the anguished grief we feel right now. Our youngest son, Matthew, age 27, and a lifelong member of Saddleback, died today," wrote Warren.

"Over the past 33 years we've been together through every kind of crisis. Kay and I've been privileged to hold your hands as you faced a crisis or loss, stand with you at gravesides, and prayed for you when ill. Today, we need your prayer for us," began the staff email from him. ...

P Mike
As much thorough disagreement I have with Rick Warren theological. I call him one of the foremost false teachers of our day because of his teaching to make your church pleasing to the world, and there is a heap of other things too.

James 4:4
Galatians 1:10

But nevertheless that said, why shouldn't RW at some time write a book expressing his feelings, opinions whatever concerning this tragedy, if he is willing to? Will such a book make money? Probably but I am not going to fault him for it if it does.

RW is in serious false teaching and (quote) friendships from what Scripture tells us he shouldn't be in _ something quite different from being a friend TO sinners to lovingly witness to them out of genuine love for them to come to Repentance and be saved NOT A LOVE FOR THEM THAT GIVES ACCEPTABILITY OF THEIR SIN/FALSE TEACHING/FALSE GOSPEL. RW needs whatever we might righfully do and say that he might wake up and repent and return to a genuine Biblical obedient faith.

Nothing can deliver a person who is not a Christian. He had no demons, we have to notice the effects of Theology of Experience vs. Scripture.

Of course we have sympathy for Mr. Warren during this time, and all of us who have lost a close relative should look upon this as a time to lean on the Lord and reflect on our relationship with him.

I can't stop thinking about the grief the family is experiencing at this very moment. What a terrible thing it must be to lose a child in any manner.

Oh boy, I just can't imagine what it is like to lose a child. I have always wondered how people cope and move on emotionally.
I have some experience wih this. My dad shot and killed himself in July/1996. There were no warning signs and no note to leave us wondering to this day. I have a reason to believe that he may have been murdered, but can't be certain. Anyway, he was supposedly a born again Christian and this is why I like to believe that one cannot lose their matter how bumpy their life may be after the event.

IMHO a wonderfully compassionate sermon and an encouragement for ministry, for us to consider in a time like this, that has been on SermonAudio since 2000 and uploaded again in 2007:
More Than Enough Hope by Jim Berg of Bob Jones University.

AND PLEASE DO read the comments to have an appreciation of Jim Berg's message.

Yes, our prayers certainly need to be humbly laid at the Throne of Grace for those decieved into a form of godliness that denies and does not know the power of the Gospel of Christ to save the most broken of sinners.

And may the 'tragedy' Mr Warren and his family are going through serve to motivate us to seek God that He might use us, even in a time of need in (quote) deliverence ministry if needs be.

Crissy, I do understand this can mean taking authority in the name of Jesus Christ authority over literal demonic spirits to command them to leave and see them go.

And also one more thing, IMHO, we are so far from understanding what others and their families face and go through, so may God give us the humility and grace to put away any stones we might ignorantly through at genuine brothers and sisters (I am not calling Rick Warren this) who have had tragedy with family members.

He says he bought the best mental care. But nothing worked. His only help was Jesus! His son had a demonic stronghold. Mr Warren should have helped him find a deliverance minister!
