Rick Warren’s true purpose-driven colors are being flown.
Not only has he been caught in an out-and-out lie about whether he ever supported California’s Prop 8 defining marriage as being between a man and a woman, he also now is saying he’s against restrictions on homosexual marriage and trying to make it seem like that’s the honorable, biblical stand to take.
This is the man whose “Purpose Driven” books are in practically every evangelical church and ministry in the U.S., whose church has been raking it in. The man who speaks to Jewish and Islamic groups about being purpose driven without offering them the Gospel. The man who offers a prayer at the inauguration of a man dedicated to the continued butchering of innocent babies up to and after the point of birth.
No one should be surprised. And no one probably will care. The self-deceiving churches and Christians eager to have their ears itched will go on supporting Rick Warren, buying his garbage and going to his conferences.
A friend of mine last year bemoaned the criticism Warren’s family has had to endure. He deserves every bit of it.
Dr. Voddie Baucham has an excellent take on the matter.
