Christians: Fear the Lord, Not Rick Warren!

From Donald Hank at Renew America

…A new leader emerged among the false prophets, who quickly became famous because he flattered the evil doers and said nothing about their sins.

He was well liked among the licentious and godless because he provided cover for them by silencing dissenters, called them “uncivil” if they criticized same-sex marriage and abortion.

Many foolishly believed that they would become prosperous even without God’s blessings. Yet some, the wiser and older believers who knew the Bible, resisted. Rick told the pastors to simply kick out these older people, whom he derisively called fundamentalists (a name that had been shrewdly used by non-believers to denote Islamic radicals, making it seem as if all traditionalist Christians were every bit as bad as terrorists). Through this sleight of hand, he was able to discredit sincere Christians.
