"The PEACE Plan is built on the same principle. The Bride of Christ – of which the church is its local expression around the world – deserves the focus, the credit and the glory for faithfully serving their communities year after year."-Rick Warren
I wrote to Rick Warren about my concerns. He has yet to respond. So here is my beef.
While it may be true that at other weddings, the bride is the star and gets the glory, it will not be true in the wedding feast of Jesus. HE is the star. HE gets the glory.
In fact, in everything we do as believers, we are instructed to give to the glory to God.
It’s not the church that gets the glory. It’s not the body of believers who get the glory. It’s not any individual members of the body who get the glory. It’s one person – the Son of God.
Read Warren’s response in this follow up post at WorldNet Daily, Who Gets The Glory? where he adamantly defended his assertion that the church "deserves the credit and the glory for faithfully serving their communities year after year."
