Rick Warren Endorses 2013 Book, “Catholics Come Home” – Calls Catholic Evangelization “Critically Important”


See what “America’s Pastor” is saying about this 2013 release on the Roman Catholic” new evangelization program to bring back the “lost [Protestant] brethren” to the “Mother Church”:

Warren openly attempts to unite Christians and Muslims –

The Rev. Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest and one of America’s most influential Christian leaders, has embarked on an effort to heal divisions between evangelical Christians and Muslims by partnering with Southern California mosques and proposing a set of theological principles that includes acknowledging that Christians and Muslims worship the same God.  read more

We are reminding readers of the use of the term “leaven” in Galatians 5:9 in regard to false teaching. How does leaven work? We all know. A small amount placed in the dough will leaven all of it.

Rick Warren and John Piper as Keynote Speakers, Aspire Conference

A Photo with Steve Camp Says it All

The seduction of the “Reformed” camp by Rick Warren continues apace. The Tweet in the photo is by Steve Camp from last June, a man who spent  a number of years exposing the Purpose-Driven false gospel only to do a 180-degree turnaround recently.

Christian Post:

Pastor’s Convention Aim to Plant More Churches

We don’t need another conference or more sermons…but what we need is a fresh awakening, a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit that would begin something that would literally change the world, said Pitman, who is also the lead pastor of Hope Baptist Church in Las Vegas, Nev.

This convention is the Aspire Conference linked in the first article The quoted comment sounds just like those involved in charismania who constantly look for the next move, the next outpouring as though God needs to do something more for us than He already has. The true message is one of repentance. It is our responsibility to respond to God in heeding the message already laid out. Planting churches is a great goal if there is proper need. But in looking at the big picture, these men are no longer bringing a gospel message, but one mixed with many other focuses. When the message of the cross has become “Jesus and” it is no longer the true gospel. It has become heretical.

Chuck Colson Breakpoint:

Video Series by Chuck Colson and Rick Warren -Christian leaders Chuck Colson and Rick Warren have joined together to produce a stimulating study called Wide Angle: Framing Your Worldview.

Keep in mind the previous push for signatures on the Manhattan Declaration. Is it a wonder Chuck Colson has also teamed up with Warren being they are both “purpose driven”? When I hear the word “worldview” it makes me think dominionism or one world religion/government. I know some who use this word do not have that in their view or teaching, but many others do and we will see that connection between those who have evil intent.

Lighthouse Trails Blog:

3 Contemplative Proponents -Leonard Sweet, Rick Warren, and Mark Driscoll – Named Among “Top 10 Most Influential Christians” of 2010

“What influenced the choices were their accomplishments in 2010, polling data and frequency of mention in the press.”1 What the article does not say though is that all three of these “leaders” in Christianity are contemplative proponents, which means that in view of this huge influence, thousands and thousands are being influenced toward contemplative spirituality (a belief system that ultimately leads to New Age thinking).

Lighthouse Trails has some very good reference material regarding the New Age and false christs. I highly recommend these books and teachings!

Eye-Witness Account: Global Peace Forum at Saddleback with Rick Warren and Tony Blair Raises Serious Questions About Global Peace Plan

On March 7, 2011, Roger Oakland, founder of Understand the Times, International, and two other members from his ministry attended the Peace in a Globalized Society forum at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, which featured Rick Warren and special guest, former UK prime minister Tony Blair. Roger Oakland and his co-workers obtained eye-witness seats at the event that included well over 2000 people in attendance. Although cameras and recorders were not allowed in the main sanctuary where the interview took place, the UTT team took notes.


Warren Visits Bethany for Conference

He (Warren) said he has trained more than 400,000 people in the 40-day, “Purpose Driven” program in 164 foreign nations, and some of those people have told him, “The uprisings are not religious or political; everybody is working together.”

In introducing Warren to the conference audience, the Rev. Larry Stockstill, senior pastor at Bethany, said Warren has “an apostolic calling on a worldwide scale.”

“A mantle that Billy Graham has been carrying is falling upon him,” Stockstill said. Warren’s “greatest desire is to see the American pastor and pastors across this globe develop a purity of lifestyle that shines like stars in the firmament.”

    A quick comment on this statement by Vance Pitman,

    Don’t any of these guys understand that God has already poured out His Spirit on all men …… at pentecost. How many more times do they think this will occur? . Inherent in this sort of teaching is a complete lack of understanding of how one is baptised in , and filled with the Holy Spirit. Vance Pitman is certainly not on his own here though, Ive read plenty of this coming from David Wilkerson and Carter Conlon, pastors who believe that the promises affirmed in Joel 2:28 will again occur because the Lord told them so.


  2. Ray, wasn’t Joel 2:28 fulfilled with the coming of Christ, in being “the last days”? I had no idea Wilkerson was going in this direction, but I haven’t listened to him much.

    thanks for the heads up. This gets worse every day.

    Mkayla, that would certainly be the orthodox way to interpret this scripture and definitely the way that I understand it to be , however, this notion of a ” last days revival” is something that I have been hearing about since forever. I’ve never really been involved in the pentecostal scene so I am wondering if this is something peculiar to charismania.
    I’ll post a couple of links for you to follow.

    • I had no idea. I haven’t listened to the MP3 yet, but the “devotion” reads like something that came from Bob Jones’ mouth! It is madness to assume that God still has a “move” to make. The bible does not give an indication that He will. The wording Wilkerson is using smacks again of believers becoming something more powerful, more effective than they ever have been, and that they can get there if they just become more devoted, dedicated, sold out, laid down, _________ fill in the blank. He is twisting Christianity to sound like all the other religions who operate without God! We can never be enough or become achievers in God’s sight. This is why He came to earth as a man, because He knew better! We are hidden in Christ, not in becoming.


  4. This morning I added a link from Lighthouse Trails Blog which is another eye account of the happenings at Saddleback, this time involving the meeting with Tony Blair. The one-world government system is set up as is the one world religion.

    We are in serious times and these articles need to be read and understood and distributed. Play time is over.


  5. The whole BASIS for the kind of unity Warren is promoting is a type of a “covenant” with unbelievers : a BIZARRE unity, bcos it is based on an unspoken agreement NOT to tell the truth about Jesus, His Salvation and His commands. That’s the bottom line of this : It is an anti-Christ covenant : Just don’t tell the truth about Jesus, and then we can all get along together just fine.

    Which is why Warren is now bound by this covenant with the devil, and you won’t hear him preach the truth or proclaim the true gospel.

    And the article points out that the so-called leaders of Christianity are strangely silent about this.


    • Hello Ian!!!! 🙂
      Good to see you!

      Yes, they are anti-christ, and the silent leaders must be in cahoots, why else would they remain silent. I think when we finally are able to move past the excuses, we can see this more clearly. I am tired of the excuses and am ready to call the snake a snake. And if my doing causes others to gasp that I am speaking against a man of God, I say gasp now, be offended now, because the day is coming when we will all give an account. I am tired and I am weary of the entire church scene the way it is played here in the not so free America.

      Someone else made a powerful point along the lines of – if the Holy Spirit is not revealing the truth to these people, maybe it is because they are not true believers. He said it much better, but that is the jest. Its something I hadn’t considered in the past, but it stands to reason! And as you pointed out, when Jesus is moved from the conversation it is no longer Christianity. I never thought of it in the sense of covenant. Powerful.


  6. Hi M’kayla,

    A covenant is simply an agreement.

    It is also a constraint, or a thing that binds:

    You are not constrained in us, but

    **you are constrained in your own affections.**

    Now in return for the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be you also enlarged in heart. Be you not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what partnership has light with darkness? And what harmony has Christ with Belial? or what part has he that believes with an infidel? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? for you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore come out from among them, and be you separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.
    (2 Corinthians 6:12-18)

    …but you are constrained in your own affections.

    When there is any “fellowship” between a believer and an unbeliever, then a constraint, a BONDAGE ensues. The “fellowship” itself IS a bondage.

    This is what Warren is doing. Totally rejecting the Word of God.


  7. I read Lighthouse Trail Blog and also came across the article Rick Warren & Tony Blair. Honestly, Rick Warren is just getting worse and worse so off track. But I suppoes that should not surprise us at all. You can not mix nor blend or complimize with the world. It does not work. We all know that from the teachings in the Bible. We can come up with so many verses pointing this out. No matter how they try to make the Bible say what they want it to say, Christ is the same yesterday, to-day and forever he changeth not. It is man who are doing all the changes. If Christ kept changing what hope would we have. We wouldn’t know if we were coming or going I’m sure it would be very confusing. But, praise God he is in CHARGE and not man. Let’s face it Man has made a real mess out of this world and are very sinful.
