Pope Invites Rick Warren To Speak at Philadelphia Conference

Pontiff Invites Rick Warren To Speak at Philadelphia Conference on Family

Rick Warren, senior pastor of Saddleback Church, has announced he will be speaking in Philadelphia later this month at the World Meeting of Families event to commence Pope Francis' highly anticipated visit to the United States.

Warren announced his plans to attend the event during the Sunday morning worship service at the Lake Forest, CA church. "Next month, Pope Francis is coming to America for a world gathering on families," he told the congregation.

"I'm not a Catholic, and we have many differences with Catholics. But they love the Lord and we have much in common with that - we believe in the Bible, and the Trinity, and in Jesus and the resurrection." "There are probably going to be a million people in Philadelphia at this final event with Pope Francis, and he's asked me to be the final speaker," the Purpose Driven Life author continued amid cheering and applause.

According to its website, the World Meeting of Families is a "week-long international event of prayer, catechesis, and celebration that draws participants from around the globe." The 8th annual event, which organizers say will be attended by up to two million people, seeks to "strengthen the bonds between families and to witness the crucial importance of marriage and the family to all society."

"...Warren is scheduled to be a keynote speaker at one of the events. For discerning Christians who do care about what is happening to the church, including the current ecumenical move to bring the “lost brethren” back to the Mother Church (and ultimately form a unified global religious body as the Bible states will happen), we’d like to bring to your attention these five articles by Roger Oakland and ask that you pray that many eyes will be opened to what is happening. And much of this taking place within evangelicalism, if not most of it, can be attributed to the actions of leaders such as Rick Warren, Beth Moore, the late Chuck Colson, and many others, who have escalated this dangerous ecumenism that is changing the face of mainstream Christianity today..."
