America’s Pastor, and Another Move for One World Religion

Nearly 4 years ago, Rick Warren posed  – yes – posed the inaugural prayer for Obama. At the end of his words he stated “in the name of Isa”. Is there NOW any wonder left for us as to why he said such a thing, being famed as “America’s Pastor”? 

One world religion, anyone?

Adding a new article to this listing found here – Rick Warren and…

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

  1. M’Kayla, if you had a reference to this somewhere, I didn’t see it. Rick Warren, along with some 500 prominent pastors and religious figures signed this document out of Yale University (at the end of 2007 or beginning of 2008). Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life…no one comes to the Father, except through Him. This stuff just amazes me.

    Segments taken from a Christian Response to ‘A Common Word Between Us and You’

    Preamble
    As members of the worldwide Christian community, we were deeply encouraged and challenged by the recent historic open letter signed by 138 leading Muslim scholars, clerics, and intellectuals from around the world. A Common Word Between Us and You identifies some core common ground between Christianity and Islam which lies at the heart of our respective faiths as well as at the heart of the most ancient Abrahamic faith, Judaism.

    Before we “shake your hand” in responding to your letter, we ask forgiveness of the All-Merciful One and of the Muslim community around the world.

    Our love, Jesus Christ says, must imitate the love of the infinitely good Creator; our love must be as unconditional as is God’s—extending to brothers, sisters, neighbors, and even enemies. At the end of his life, Jesus Christ himself prayed for his enemies: “Forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34
    The Prophet Muhammad did similarly when he was violently rejected and stoned by the people of Ta’if. He is known to have said, “The most virtuous behavior is to engage those who sever relations, to give to those who withhold from you, and to forgive those who wrong you.” (It is perhaps significant that after the Prophet Muhammad was driven out of Ta’if, it was the Christian slave ‘Addas who went out to Muhammad, brought him food, kissed him, and embraced him.)

    Abandoning all “hatred and strife,” we must engage in interfaith dialogue as those who seek each other’s good, for the one God unceasingly seeks our good. Indeed, together with you we believe that we need to move beyond “a polite ecumenical dialogue between selected religious leaders” and work diligently together to reshape relations between our communities and our nations so that they genuinely reflect our common love for God and for one another.

      We could write all day long and then some the differences between Jehovah and Allah. There is absolutely no comparison and there will be no peace on earth until Christ returns to set up His kingdom, unaided by man!

      1 Thessalonians 5
      1Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you. 2For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. 3While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape

      John 14:15

      “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.

      Deuteronomy 13:
      12“If you hear in one of your cities, which the LORD your God is giving you to live in, anyone saying that 13some worthless men have gone out from among you and have seduced the inhabitants of their city, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods’ (whom you have not known), 14then you shall investigate and search out and inquire thoroughly. If it is true and the matter established that this abomination has been done among you, 15you shall surely strike the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying it and all that is in it and its cattle with the edge of the sword. 16“Then you shall gather all its booty into the middle of its open square and burn the city and all its booty with fire as a whole burnt offering to the LORD your God; and it shall be a ruin forever. It shall never be rebuilt. 17“Nothing from that which is put under the ban shall cling to your hand, in order that the LORD may turn from His burning anger and show mercy to you, and have compassion on you and make you increase, just as He has sworn to your fathers, 18if you will listen to the voice of the LORD your God, keeping all His commandments which I am commanding you today, and doing what is right in the sight of the LORD your God.

      No, I’m not advocating that we go out and do this, as we are under Grace through Christ. But it does show what the Lord God thinks of following after other gods and His people being caught up in such a deception and dragged away from the knowledge of Him. He is a jealous God and has said so. One day He will bring judgement against these false teachers, as this scripture refers to them as worthless men Worthless, because they have nothing to add to our lives in Christ!

      John 14:6
      Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

      Acts 20:29
      I know that after my departing grievous wolves shall enter in among you, not sparing the flock; 30and from among your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.

      Stand strong in Christ all. It is my prayer for believers throughout the world to stand.

  2. The “god” referred to in the Yale document is not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! They can quote scripture, but when the scriptures aren’t used in context and the whole of scripture, they’re only used to benefit the deception. It is clear from the scripture M’Kayla has shared…..the GOD of the Bible (YHVH…..I AM) is a jealous God and has clearly stated – “there is no other god beside Me!”. To Yahweh be glory and honor and praise!

Fightin’ for position, power and acknowledgement, when, if this had been a move of God, they would have had nothing to claim. God shares His glory with no one.

    You know, it takes only about a 5 minute search on the internet to discover who these wolves are. What excuse do the politicians have?

    I cry when I see videos like the one from R H-B’s church. I pray that all of the people in that video will be delivered from the spiritual bondage Rodney Howard-Brown has inflicted on them. God, have mercy on them. I pray that they may come to know true freedom in the glorious Gospel of our Lord Jesus. BUT, the LORD answers what will become of the Howard-Browns and their like:

    “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!” (Gal 1:8-9)

  7. Just a quick point: I googled Rodney Howard-Brown. The fourth listing was from wikipedia. It is a short entry that includes the following:

    “According to Christianity Today, Browne’s ministry is known for its focus on what he calls “signs and wonders”, characterized by laughing, making animal noises, trances and “falling under the power” during his evangelistic services.[3] This gave rise to the term “holy laughter”, and “holy ghost bartender”, which refer to audience members spontaneously laughing loudly during his services.[4] In 1989, in upstate New York, revivals “broke out” in church meetings that Howard-Browne was leading or attending.[3] He held a controversial revival at the Carpenter’s Home Church in Lakeland, Florida and was subsequently linked to the Toronto Blessing.[3][5][6] The manifestations at the Toronto event became so contentious that the Vineyard Association of Churches severed ties with the Toronto church.

    Howard-Browne serves as the pastor of a church in Tampa, Florida, which he founded in 1996.”

    Okay, that took me all of 60 seconds (and I don’t have a staff, as I would assume the politicians all have). It is very chilling.

    • Yes, let me just clarify one point tho. I used to attend a Vineyard and this was explained to me. John Wimber claimed to have parted from the goings on in Toronto and made a public announcement. However, from my own experience with the Vineyard and learning of Wiber’s affiliations and teachings, he continued to support and proclaim the falseness. He pulled John Paul Jackson out of it, claiming he was going to teach him the truth, and to this day the Vineyard very much supports and learns directly from JP Jackson and his wild dreams and visions interpretations.

      As far as all this connection to politics, it is about their need for fame, as much as it is the need for the dominionists to build their 7 mountains and claim rulership of the world. (We see this every time there is an election or the “national day of prayer”, and so on, that I have written about in the past.) It is antichrist preparedness for the spiritually blind.

  8. I am in iagreement with you – We say we love God and Jesus yet most people do not understand that when Jesus said “if you love me keep my commandments” most people do not have a clue what he was talking about today, because we have become so far from the Holy Vine and the Truth which is that Jesus/Yeshua kept the Commandments that were given to Moses, also as Yeshua is the Word of God it stands to reason we should be keeping the Word as He kept it and as taught it to his disciples and to all who were listening to him. He did not come to change anything nor add to nor take away, He came to show us that He is the fulfillment and as such an example on how we should live, according to His Word, not according to some preacher who has changed the word and made his own interpretations and decisions to form this so called “joining together of other faiths” God made it very clear in His first commandment that He is the Only God, and he is a Jealous God and that there is NO other God like HIm – He is the creator of the Universe, mankind and everything that has life, whether it be birds, dogs, cats, fish, fowl, man, women, even worms and spiders and snakes were made by Him. Everything is in His control, He has the victory over All.

    May I take this opportunity to thank you for standing up for Jesus and His Word. May God bless you mightly for your standing for the Word of God. Keep smiling, keep rejoicing He loves those who Trust in Him.

  9. Hi M’Kayla. I have glanced your blog, but never have commented. I too was part of the Vineyard, left the church this past February. Oddly enough, though they say they did not support Toronto, the Vineyard I was at very much supported Bill Johnson. Matter of fact, the church I began going to along with Vineyard every other Sunday, I was told had an “anointing”, is in Nashville and Johnson frequents that church along with Jim Gholl. The assistant pastor of that church is from Toronto, and the church they came from is none other than the Toronto Airport Church. I personally believe Vineyard pulled out of supposed “associations” just for appearances sake.

    CHICAGO — Joining the chorus of Roman Catholic clergy in Illinois criticizing President Barack Obama before next week’s election, Peoria Bishop Daniel Jenky ordered priests to read a letter to parishioners on Sunday before the presidential election, explaining that politicians who support abortion rights also reject Jesus.

    “By virtue of your vow of obedience to me as your Bishop, I require that this letter be personally read by each celebrating priest at each Weekend Mass,” Jenky wrote in a letter circulated to clergy in the Catholic Diocese of Peoria.

    Read more here:

    http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2012/10/31/173269/bishop-orders-priests-to-read.html#storylink=cpy

    “Today, Catholic politicians, bureaucrats, and their electoral supporters who callously enable the destruction of innocent human life in the womb also thereby reject Jesus as their Lord,” Jenky added. “They are objectively guilty of grave sin.”

    The call of the Christian is NOT to police the world; abortion is NOT your concern any more than any other sin: “Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong; let him who is vile continue to be vile; let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy.” (Rev 22:11)

    Rather, it is to us to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth making disciples of all nations…to all who have ears to hear and eyes to see. We are calling people to repentance in the name of Jesus Christ…period.

    To all who are in this harlot religious system: be they catholic, charismatic, emergent or submergently asleep: come out of her before it is to late!

    “The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule, until God’s words are fulfilled.”(Rev 17:16-17)
