May it never be! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written: “So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge.” (Ro 3:4)

Slice of Laodicea Attacks Saddleback Church

Here is another attack from Slice of Laodicea on Rick Warren.

Saddleback Church members recently returned from a missionary trip to Argentina. They were so proud of their good deeds that they posted a video documenting their trip. However, when you watch their video it becomes eerily clear that these missionaries were not handing out Bibles and teaching the word of God, instead they were handing out the Purpose-Driven Life book. Here is a post with screen shots from the video. Is Saddleback Church spreading the message of purpose or the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

I think SoL is unfair to attack Saddleback like this. What’s the difference between handing out the Purpose Drive Life and the Bible? Paul, Peter and a bunch of other guys wrote the Bible, well, Rick Warren is also a guy. Have SoL never read “What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, I planted, Apollos watered, but Rick Warren makes them grow”

Where would we be without Rick Warren to tell us what our purpose in life is? Christians might have some crazy idea that we are created to glorify God and for his pleasure, but Rick Warren has straighten us out. Now we know that our purpose in life is P.E.A.C.E. It is not about you. It is about making the world a better place. Our purpose is to fix the environment and leave it better for the next generation. The World According to Warren.
