It had been a while since anyone has said “amen” to one of my pithy sermons.
I can’t believe I have to do this. I was reading an interview that Rick Warren (of the Purpose Driven Life) gave and was struck by something he wrote. So I kept reading the interview and was struck by a few other silly things he said.
Look, I’ve got nothing against Rick Warren personally. From what I’ve seen he seems like a nice guy who does some good work. My problem is with the lack of…shall we say…accountability of his theology. And the lack of reason and logic in his worldview. In his mind, what you do in life doesn’t matter, as long as you declare your love for God, it’s all good.
This leads to some really, really, nasty things when applied to real life, which is far more complex that it seems Mr. Warren is capable of conceiving.
Read on for that argument…
