Warren & Mouw Light Up the Ecumenical Radar

Rick Warren's recent podcast How To Stay Mentally Fresh For Ministry, featured Dr. Richard Mouw, President of Fuller Theological Seminary. Rick Warren also received his doctorate degree from Fuller Theological Seminary, and participates in Fuller's " Pastor's Update" , an audio series designed to answer the cry of church leaders in need of practical training.

Dr. Mouw is no stranger to controversy, as he has offered an apology to Mormons, and
was quoted in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune on January 22, 2000:
Mouw said he supports rights and benefits for committed same-sex domestic partners, but believes the sacrament of marriage should be confined to heterosexual couples in the Judeo-Christian tradition.”

Dr. Mouw is a board member of the Ecumenical venture - Conference on Faith and Order in North America. The effort is notable in seeking out evangelical and Pentecostal churches that have not traditionally been a part of Faith and Order discussions, along with Roman Catholics, Orthodox and mainline Protestants.

Fuller Theological Seminary has a distinguished history in ecumenical, psychological and mystical aspects of religion.

Fuller Theological has also hosted the Southern California Ecumenical Symposium, with Dr Mouw as a key note speaker.

In February 2007, Fuller Theological stood united with the Christian Churches Together. The ecumenical group involves churches from all five Christian "families" – Catholics, Evangelicals and Pentecostals, Mainline Protestants, Orthodox, and racial or ethnic churches – and represents the broadest ecumenical fellowship ever formed in this country.

Rick Warren continues to come out from underneath the radar regarding his unbiblical, ecumenical alliances.
