Rick Warren Tweets Trauma As The Root of Dogma

Rick Warren again casts stones at those who would judge and discern while maintaining the distinctives of faith...

"Psychological needs, not theological creeds, make people strident & judgmental."

"Traumatic hurts create dogmatic hearts."


Perhaps Rick Warren has it backwards...according to Foxe's Book of Martyrs, people who rightly judged false teachings were traumatized and murdered for being dogmatic about their Biblical faith.

Galatians 1:6-9

6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!

Matthew 24

9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. 11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. 12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
