RICK WARREN AWARDS PURPOSE DRIVEN ROMAN CATHOLICS

From Pastor Ken Silva at Apprising Ministries:

As one who is myself a former Roman Catholic, whom the Lord graciously delivered from the religious bondage of apostate Roman Catholicism into the glorious liberty of the sons of God, I’m taking issue with Dr. Piper telling us that the double-minded Rick Warren is “doctrinal and sound.” [1]

Quite frankly, Warren is not at all in line with biblical Christianity, and Reformation theology, concerning the Roman Catholic Church, which should be a major concern to those in the Reformed camp ala Dr. Piper. In fact, fellow DG 2010 speaker Dr. R.C. Sproul is on record as saying the Church of Rome placed its anathema upon the Gospel of Jesus Christ itself; and is, therefore, apostate. [2] The Protestant Reformers e.g. Martin Luther and John Calvin also recognized this and denounced the Roman Catholic Church as being led by one in the chair of the Antichrist.

I personally would have preferred they had said an antichrist; but even so, as I showed you in Desiring God 2010, John Piper, And Warrengate, Rick Warren has still said: “I see absolutely zero reason in separating my fellowship from anybody.” [3] And, specifically of the Church of Rome, Warren has stated:

“The small group structure is the structure of renewal in every facet of Christianity — including Catholicism.” (Online source, emphasis mine)

“Now I don’t agree with everything in everybody’s denomination, including my own. I don’t agree with everything that Catholics do or Pentecostals do, but what binds us together is so much stronger than what divides us,” he said. “I really do feel that these people are brothers and sisters in God’s family. I am looking to build bridges with the Orthodox Church, looking to build bridges with the Catholic Church,….” (Online source, emphasis mine)

“Most readers will be surprised to learn that the largest international network is…the Christian Church. The Church, in all its expressions—Catholic, Evangelical, Pentecostal, Protestant and many others—has 2.3 billion followers.” (Online source, emphasis mine)

Rick Warren Has Decided That The Protestant Reformation Was In Error

You should realize that Rick Warren has just told us, for example, that Luther and Calvin were wrong in teaching that the Roman Catholic Church was apostate. And remember Warren’s statement about there being “zero reason” for him “separating my fellowship from anybody”; consider below just how sweeping his statement appears to have been...

  1. As Jesus said in The Revelation, " He that has an ear to hear, let him hear". So, what is needed is ears to hear and eyes to see.

    Bless you for sounding the alarm.
