Rick Warren And The Purpose Driven Plan To Destroy The Church Of Jesus Christ

The word "church" is often taken from the name of the church, and the church may be called a "campus". Denominational names may also be removed.

In the past ten years a large percentage of churches in America, and in other countries have changed from a traditional New Testament church model to a contemporary Purpose Driven model, many with sorrowful results

“To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,” Ephesians 3:10 (KJV)

Contrary to Purpose Driven Church propaganda, millions have been leaving their churches after the change occurred. It is important that every church member know if their church is targeted for a Purpose Driven Church takeover. Initially, a small clique of church staff, possibly including the pastor or a new pastor, plans the change without telling the rest of the church membership.

Church Transitions, an associate of Saddleback Church in California, trains the clique initiating the change in eight published steps. The church membership is not to be informed of the transition until the fourth step. After the sixth step in the process of change, if there are some in the church who voice concerns, the following is suggested:

  1. Identify those who are resisting the changes;
  2. Assess the effectiveness of their opposition;
  3. Befriend those who are undecided about the changes;
  4. Marginalize more persistent resisters;
  5. Vilify those who stay and fight; and
  6. Establish new rules that will silence all resistance.

This means the church membership is not told until it is too late to make a difference. In other words, the church is stolen. Then the members either accept the changes, or leave the church, which they may have served and given to build. Dr. Rick Warren, author of “The Purpose Driven Church” and “The Purpose Driven Life” has boasted: “When you reveal the vision to the church, the old pillars are going to leave. But let them leave… they only hold things up.”

The Purpose Driven Deception – Exposing Rick Warren’s New World Order Agenda

Rick Warren is right in one way. It is the senior members of the church who do indeed hold a church up and keep it from falling into apostasy. While some PDC initiators may not implement the full PDC format, generally, these are the signs that your church is targeted for a Purpose Driven Church format:

  • Change in music to a contemporary rock style.
  • Removal of hymn books; eliminating the choir.
  • Replacement of organ and piano with heavy metal instruments.
  • Repetitive singing of praise lyrics.
  • Dressing down to casual and informal attire.
  • Eliminating of business meetings, church committees, council of elders, board of deacons, etc.
  • The pastor, or a new leader with a few assistants, usually four, takes charge of all church business.
  • A repetitive 40-day Purpose Driven Church study program stressing psychological relationships with each other, the community, or the world, begins.
  • Funded budgeted programs are abandoned, or ignored, with ambiguous financial reports made.
  • Sunday morning, evening, and/or Wednesday prayer meetings are changed to other times; some may even be eliminated.
  • Sunday School teachers are moved to different classes, or replaced by new teachers more sympathetic with the changes being implemented.
  • The name “Sunday School” is dropped and classes are given new names.
  • Crosses and other traditional Christian symbols may be moved from both the inside and outside of the church buildings. The pulpit may also be removed.
  • In accordance with Dr. Warren’s instructions, new version Bibles are used; or only verses flashed on a screen are referenced during regular services.
  • Purpose Driven Church films, purchased from Saddleback, precede or are used during regular services.
  • The decor, including the carpets, may be changed to eliminate any resemblance to the former church.
  • The word “church” is often taken from the name of the church, and the church may be called a “campus”. Denominational names may also be removed.
  • An emphasis on more fun and party sessions for the youth.
  • Elimination of altar calls or salvation invitations at the close of the services.
  • The elimination of such words as “unsaved”, “lost”, “sin”, “Hell”, “Heaven” and other Gospel verities from the pastor’s messages.
  • The reclassification of the saved and lost to the “churched” and the “unchurched”.
  • The marginalizing, or ostracizing, of all who are not avid promoters of the new Purpose Driven Program.
  • Closed meetings between the pastor or chosen staff members without any reports made to the general membership.
  • Open hostility to members who do not openly embrace the new program, or who may have left for another church.

What you can do to stop it:

If your church is in the initial stages of change (music or the first 40-day program), your church could be saved by talking with other church members, and with activist intervention by 10-20 percent of the membership. If nothing is done at this early stage, then by the time the program advances to step four, there is little that can be done except look for another church. Your church has been stolen and become a Purpose Driven entity in association with Saddleback Church of Orange County or Willow Creek of Chicago.

You must educate yourself, and others, so that you can mobilize the membership to effectively resist. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” 2 Timothy 1:7.

The Purpose Driven Church books and most of the programs are published by Rupert Murdoch, who owns 175 newspapers worldwide, and a large percentage of the television and communications industry. He also owns several magazines, some of which have been classified as pornographic.

Billions of dollars pour into the Purpose Driven Church movement. Dr. Warren has stated he intends to send one billion Christians into the world to bring in the “Kingdom of Heaven”. The entire movement appears cultish. Don’t be fooled by the Saddleback Website. You don’t catch many fish unless you have a look-alike bait!

    The heresy is not in what kind of music or such your church uses. The heresy is taking the focus & the glory off of Jesus (Yeshua) our saviour, our Lord. Rick Warren has rewritten his original book A Purpose Driven Life. He has begun associating his church with Muslim mosques; surreptitiously to bring peace. He is now teaching that (it makes me sick to even write this) Allah & God are one in the same. THAT IS THE HERESY! They are pushing Jesus out & putting Allah up as God.

      look into inter-faithism and notice that it’s gone beyond the catholic to include the worldly protestant churches. (as well as the worlds religions..islam hindu budda sikh judaisms and the many smoke house native religions). One last big world religion fit for an anti-christ to come take charge of is inter-faithism and people in power are on board too so it’s a sign of the last day’s.

      • Sola Scriptura

        Exactly. There is so much american indian symbology on clothes and hats today. I noticed it at the mall when I was shopping with my daughter today. Native american spirituality, along with the obvious hinduism via yoga and contemplative prayer, are sneaking in everywhere. Jesus Christ is the only way to God and if we join together with those who don’t hold to the pure doctrine of Christ, we commit treason against our great God:

        • carson

          Hi Sola, yep and also when joining with say a hindu and leading him on to believe that he’s successful in his attempts to reach God, bolstering his walk of error..is that love? So the inter-faithers also do not love when they bolster others in the wrong path, the wide path that leads to perdition.
          Just another of many things wrong with inter-faithism.

    • -Holy Spirit told me to tell you, don’t be alarmed, none of these leaders serve the Almighty, God, including those supporting and legalizing sexual abnormalities and abominations all over this nation, this world. This is what Jesus was to unveil concerning the religious leaders, and made a show openly, that the god they served was actually Satanic, demonic. That actually time Obama took office, the end time fear factor made land fall and the American Dream as known was all over.
      -This mean on the arrival also was an Islamic, to Sharia Law and Anti-Christ reign, as it all began with him, with the emergence of Hussein Obama’s Administration, it’s almost as though. That’s he and all world leaders to follow are the false prophet making crooked the path for those bond by the Great Whore unto the final Antichrist to travel. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it, Jesus, Mat. 7:14, don’t be deceived, most of these articles though meant well by these sights, are to distract us from our attention toward Jesus Christ, calling, commission us to GET OUT, FLEE, AWAKE!

    My daughter is on disability and she LOVES the Willow Creek Church of Chicago. They help her out with food and will even pay a months utility bills and/or help with tires for your car, etc. She’s very impressed with the church and goes to some of their meetings during the week. She would never believe me if I was to tell her (which she probably wouldn’t understand) that this church is a Laodiciean Church. I can see how people are sucked in to this church. They have all kinds of activities at the church all year around. They have a VERY large congregation (hopefully not all slipping into hell) due to this Pastor’s teachings.

    The KING warned of this 20 centuries ago! If readers are shocked by this, then they have not been studying scripture! Many have lost their first love – Jesus Christ! When anything, or anyone replaces HIM, then they are lost! The sheisters in the pulpits believe gain is godliness, and brainwash their flock into believing the same! Again, if scripture was studied and rightly divided, none of this apostasy would be happening in main-stream church! But since history is repeating itself, again, the masses just want to hear smooth things, and fun things. It’s morphed into an entertainment center, instead of a place of worship and power!

  • hrgreenjr

    LET RICK WARREN have them. They are not real churches anyway. Pastors have been dumbing down their congregation, substituting buildings and programs calling them ‘churches’ when the real ‘church’ are PEOPLE born again by the Holy Ghost and spritually emersed in HIS BODY. It is almost humerous, if it were not so tragic! GET OUT OF THESE 501c3 ‘clubs’ ASAP.

  • Believeit

    You can’t be talking about the scriptural church; you mean the church oh ol boy network; that should go down. The real church is indestructible. Sorry, your article sound like a bunch of sad whining and murmuring. Your supposed to look up.

  • Dean

    I think I have recently been in a church like this. It was called New City Hope and it resided in what looked like an old school building. The pastor was wearing a Mickey Mouse t-shirt and the rock band was playing loud music that made my ear drums vibrate. There was one song playing that seemed to consist of only two lines that were repeated over and over again. This went on for at least 20 minutes to the point where it became monotonous. The pastor broke out into tongues intermittently and even if you believe this gift still exists, which I don’t, there was no interpreter, which is not biblically sound. The pastor said we didn’t need sermons or entertainment and that we should just worship God. Part of what he said was true, we don’t need entertainment but it seemed to me that was what was being peddled there. I didn’t stay too long and got up and walked out. It’s sad to see that things that used to be considered profane have now entered the churches.

  • Grace Alone

    most churches in America I would say 99.99 percent are preaching another jesus,another gospel, another spirit. They all preach Satan’s lie of work when the Bible is clear we are only saved by Christ alone nothing to do with us. Man has no righteousness no works they can do to merit salvation- salvation is a free gift given to whom ever God pleases find the truth at .freegraceradio.com

      James 2:21-24Holman Christian Standard Bible

      21 Wasn’t Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 You see that faith was active together with his works, and by works, faith was perfected. 23 So the Scripture was fulfilled that says, Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him for righteousness,[a] and he was called God’s friend. 24 You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone.

        @ Trick

        Romans 4:1-5 (KJV)
        1 What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to
        the flesh, hath found?
        2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory;
        but not before God.
        3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was
        counted unto him for righteousness.
        4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace,
        but of debt.
        5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the
        ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

        Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV)
        8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
        it is the gift of God:
        9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

        Through gratitude to Jesus for our salvation good works will
        follow, but you can not work for your salvation, it’s a gift from
        God, it’s not a debt to be paid off. Jesus paid the debt for sinners
        on the cross, James is written to the Jews, the 12 tribes.

        • trick

          Yes, the last four lines of your post sums it up for me, thank you. It drives me nuts when folks teach that after grace they just sit back and enjoy the ride without any thought that undeserved pardon for our sins might actually change our sinful behavior. What is sin? 1 John 3:4 Holman Christian Standard Bible
          Everyone who commits sin also breaks the law; sin is the breaking of law.

      • Donna R Brown

        Trick, you are correct. That’s how it was, in the old testament they lived under the old law. That was in the age of Israel. We are now in the church age, in the age of grace, and salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone.

        • Steve

          Donna, by the “old law” are you referring to the Law of Moses? Old Testament law that was given to Israel? If so, do you not know that the old law you are referring to didn’t exist yet when Abraham was alive because there was no Israel yet? In the Bible, faith or believing God, are synonymous with obedience. That’s the connection between faith and works. Being saved by grace, through faith, has always been the way of salvation. Grace simply means we don’t deserve our salvation. Essentially, God did us a favor we didn’t merit.

        • trick

          Thank you Donna. I think about how Jesus magnified the ten commandments and even required a stricter interpretation. Example to even lust after a woman in your mind is adultery, as a man, that is harder to control, what the mind thinks,more hard than controlling the physical act which we know is wrong. I believe the first four commandments show how to love God and the rest are hove we show love to our neighbor.

      • carson

        Faith comes from God=grace, and faith comes first, so faith is it, AND faith WILL produce works=..faith produces works but it’s the grace/gift of faith which came from God and came first therefore all the glory goes to God and salvation is of the Lord.

        Before abraham offered his son he was in some other land and heard God calling him and he believed and followed, the believing caused or produced the action/work of following but the hearing God and believing came first.

        yeah if any say they have faith and they have no works their faith is dead yes. faith will produce works..if you think about it, how could faith not produce works?

        interesting how the verse say’s by works faith is made perfect, this also shows that faith is primary.

        • trick

          Thank You Carson, well said. Any works I perform do not save me. Personally, upon realization of what Jesus has done for me I am so thankful that I want to repent from my sins and put into practice works that are a form of praise for what the Lord has done for me.

  • carson

    affiliated with these and this is the ‘grow the church’ movement-growing the church through the strength of the flesh and men’s fleshly wisdoms by offering things that appeal to the flesh or offering worldly things in place of Christ and the word of God.

    Or church was pushed at to ‘grow’..fill the pews, they said they were going to send an assistant pastor to come help it grow and he’d help implement ‘programs’ and stuff, our pastor said no, God grows/adds to the church. man can plant seeds of the gospel and water but God causes the growth/faith is a gift etc and programs in place of the word of God wasn’t going to happen..

    It turned out that the ‘headquarters’ had a few new folks within their own who where pushing these things and the headquarters actually kicked them out lol

  • Skywatcher

    Not to take away from this article, but Dr. Jack Van Impe has been preaching against Rick Warren and his ilk for quite a number of years now. It all boils down to the counterfeit bibles, where the doctrine has been watered down, omitted, or changed in other ways. I noticed the change starting to occur at that time. Rick has been working overtime to create and to push Chrislam, and he’s seriously deluded and on extremely dangerous footing with God Almighty!

    • Wily

      I’ve also noticed other pastors quoting Rick War-on – One for sure comes to mind & choose not to mention his name because it may of been (quotes) of ignorance & (for the moment) I still highly respect this individual.
      RW is systematically playing out of the Marx’s manifesto & of coarse Ailinski! I read (early on) his perfect driven agenda & really didn’t pick up on what was going on until halfway through the book – I didn’t really get just how sinister it really was until War-on seemed totally unrepentant! Many of these so called Rev’s are actually Mason’s who have evil agenda’s or had fathers who were or deeply in the occult!
      *Another thing, this is a bit off topic but this Mikey Wienstien who’s goal is to totally secularize the military has deliberately gone into the new testament & twisting the words for his agenda driven purposes – the Lord will use His fist by knocking his teeth down his (the Mikeys of the world) throat right before sentencing him (Wienstien etc) eternally to the lake of fire where their designed worm of their own making will never die – Yes, these are Biblical facts – it’s dangerous to miss quote scripture, especially while knowing it! The Weinsteins of the world are arrogant & fear not the Lord – The fear of the Lord (in general) comes after a life of sowing bitter seeds – these people die alone only after a season of haunting then Hades, total hopelessness & tore-mint really takes over – they may think their really getting one over on the Lord only to realize they’re the true losers! Alice (auto writer) bounced of the walls of the rubber room for a few years before being inserted into Hades!

    Revelation 3:14-22(KJV)

    14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
    15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
    16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
    17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
    18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
    19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
    20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
    21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
    22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

  • John Berning

    The music that is played is used to quench the Holy Spirit and to invite evil spirits and to enforce a form of mind control, the wicked one and those who serve him know far better the effects of this technique than those they are set about to destroy. Warren is a member of the CFR a new world order organization, I would dare say that he is involved in some form of satanic worship. The wicked one promised the Lord when he tempted him that he would give him all the kingdoms of the world if he would bow down and worship him, he “the wicked one ” said it is within his power to do so. Remember that he satan is the god of this present age, this false teacher Rick Warren has the stature that he enjoys because of his relationship with the prince of darkness not the prince of peace! The word of God is very clear that we are to test the spirits to see if they be of God or not ! People that are asleep had better wake up to the peril that they are in before it’s too late, we are at the end of this present age, it is marked above all by deception don’t allow yourselves to be victims of these deceivers.

    Well, the author’s address says it all – small town Oklahoma. That said, some of his alarmist stuff is valid. I have a lot more to say, but won’t because I do not attend any church. The Bible says everyone has a valid and necessary part to play, but nowhere is this the case. And I might add that seldom is the case where people have empathy for anyone besides themselves. That’s why they’re in church – for their weekly ‘fix’.

    Being a Seer of the Lord’s I saw this in 2 assembly of God Churches , I no longer attend church. The gossip, the cliques, driving out the Prophets, saw them leave 1 by 1 .I came back from Fl. saw the Name Assembly of God on the church is no longer there and crosses are gone.
    The devil is taking over. God spoke to me around 1997 churches would become cell meetings soon.
    The music in all of these churches are no longer sweet and Holy unto Holy God, rather you feel like you are in a bar room.
    The music is so loud it can deafen you and fast, that is NOT worship of Almighty God I AM.
    I have not been to a so called church in probably 3 pr 4 years. I worship at home and all through each day with Father God through Christ by His spirit.
    God is sending me to a certain place soon…Pray everybody. and yes speak up to all members of the church.
    Apostles and Prophets meed to stand against this openly for the sake of the congregation,Body of Christ and for the sake of the Lord.

  • Rumpelstiltskin

    The reason people are leaving the church, is that it has stopped serving the people. Running a church like a business will always lead to decline because the church and a business appeal to different ideological beliefs. It is time for people to realize that “church” serves no one, because it relies on lies and fairy tales and emotional contrition from its members.
    You must realize that the more education a person has, the less likely they will stay with a church because it becomes apparent to the educated that a church is build upon unproven and untenable suppositions who use emotion to manipulate their brethren. You have essentially sold your soul to the devil and are too ignorant to understand how you’ve been duped.

    “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince you he was the opposite of what he is” ! Think about it !

    • Guest

      Oh scooter do you need help. You’ve actually believed the age-old lie that satan is innocent and God is the bad guy in that He somehow duped “billions” of gullible halfwits into believing in a lie. But yet you somehow saw “through” the lie!

      You didn’t. You’ve duped yourself into believing one of the grandest delusions of all.

      I’m not suggesting you “think” about what I’m about to say… I suggest you RESEARCH it. Plenty of religions are built on unproven suppositions, but Christianity isn’t really a religion; it’s a relationship with God through His Son, Jesus. And the Bible is built on a BEDROCK of proven history, archaeology, and prophecy. Take the Book of Acts for example. It houses within its pages nearly 100 historically verified facts. Luke, its author, is accredited as being one of the most reliable historians of the ancient world. Would Luke gather such acclaim from scholars if he were reporting on unproven speculations and fairytales?

      Consider Christ Himself. If He and all that He did were made up fairytales invented by men, don’t you think the Jews, who were INCREDIBLY HOSTILE to Jesus and His followers, would have taken great pleasure in proving that Jesus was a mere fabrication? Yet even the Jews verify that His tomb was indeed empty that Sunday morning!

      Could the disciples have stolen the body? Ask yourself this… could you fend off trained Roman guards, roll back a rock weighing tons, grab the body, move it without being seen, then proclaim and hold on to a lie that would do nothing but warrant you persecution and death? Who dies for what they’d know to be a lie?!

      Sorry buddy, but your accusation of “unproven and untenable presuppositions” doesn’t work with Christianity. You’re too blinded by scholastic snobbery to see that it is you yourself who have been duped.

      Come to Jesus, kiddo. satan has you so blinded that you don’t even realize that he has you exactly where he wants you so he can drag your soul to hell right alongside him.

  • Thank you for this important post! Thanks for all that you do here at NTEB, Geoffrey! Very important ministry – especially as we see the signs leading towards the end of the age!

    In a post entitled “Beware When Today’s Media Calls Someone, “America’s Pastor,” I shared the important message that when Bible truths are being distorted, it is important for Christian believers to speak up and point out such errors. Several months ago I caught a segment on the Fox and Friends show on The Fox News Channel where Rick Warren appeared with three co-authors of a new book called, “The Daniel Plan.” To read more about this, see link.

    First, I must share that I had noticed years ago that Pastor Warren’s teachings were leading towards error. It all began when I (as well as two other Bible study leaders) noticed that Rick Warren’s prayer of salvation was missing something very crucial! He did not say that we needed to repent of our sins before asking Jesus into our hearts! Unfortunately, the church where my family had been attending for over 15 years went on the wayside by trying to copy Warren’s heresy, and noticeably ended up going further downhill with non-biblical doctrine. A decision was made by the church leaders to take the huge name of Jesus down off the wall from behind the podium and replace it with a third huge video screen!

    As the years went on, I noticed Warren’s wishy-washy attitude towards the CA Proposition 8 (marriage is the union of one man and one woman) debate, and his non-biblical stance on other issues, so I wrote about them. IMHO, Warren REALLY went off the deep end, once again, by embracing Chrislam (a form of melding Christianity with Islam).

    I must say that I was deeply saddened to learn of the Warren’s son (who battled depression most of his life) committing suicide last year. In fact, his son’s suicide was so heartbreaking (as any loss of a child would be to his/her parents!!!) that Warren stated on the Fox and Friends show that he couldn’t sleep for six months and gained a lot of weight. This was one of the reasons he and his co-authors wrote the new diet book, “The Daniel Plan.”

    Well, I’ve got some bad news about that book and it’s co-authors.

    Back when the book came out I got a notification about a post from a blog I follow called Muddy Streams. The link at the end of the post (link to my blog post with additional links within the post is above) explains, in great detail, why these four men and their book should be avoided by Bible-based Christian followers of Jesus Christ.

    We all need to heed 1 John 4:1-3 in order to not be deceived by those who Jude also warned will have “crept in unnoticed” and as Matthew 24:24 informs us:

    “For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect .”

    1 Timothy 4:1-2 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.

    2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

    Laying Again, Christ, Holy Foundation

    “Ah come on Lorn, stop it with the look, you know they weren't Christians. These people worship Churches, their Pastors, choirs, tithes and offerings, there's nothing righteous about them. You wasn't there ok," finding themselves in holiday traffic, being lead mysteriously, that husband Jimmy was to surprise her. "You didn't feel how they felt, how they so despised Him, the one they were to worship, it was sooo crazy, I don't ever want to feel anything like that again. Why can't you tell me where you're taking me? That's probably why mom saw a beast, tearing straight through them, what do you mean? I didn't tell you, but the first of 2014, Mom said she witness a beast in the pulpit, chomping and stomping right through the pews. The oddest thing, she said, beside that beast, is that the pews were all vacant, all empty. Man I see why people don't like traveling on holidays, look at this; believe me, this prize is worth all of this, ah it better be. So you mean like those beast she saw before the Obama's administration, yes, I guess, one from sea, one from land, and nothing Lorn was again the same. Why would they do all this? Blowing and fussing, like they didn't know this would happen, just be patient people, just be patient? Mom called a few months back, said she had another dream where she was in the throne, said she Lorn saw the Bride. That you wouldn't believe what she held in its perfect fulness, the Stone Made without hands, I don't under, meaning the Lord, Christ, His Millennium Reign, yes, in possession of the Bride, again setting her in heaven at these urgent times. Said it had the surface of a meteor and once the Bride release it, mom heard a voice lament, now don't startle, how it was “the Antichrist murderer,” it’s to abolish from the entire planet, everything hath by them. So what is going to happen to all of them, how do you get Church people, instead to, Jesus? We Lorn can't, like a Prophet Ezekiel, sent to His People Judah, mom said actually, we never could. That God is gonna have to strike Babel, that's world commerce and religion again and cause them scatter, stampeding them to Him, only then can He save them." Ah my Jesus,” fixing brought right to tears eyes upon something remarkable, thinking he had to be kidding, surely they couldn't afford this. “It's a horse preserve, but also it's a five star resort, the most prestigious Lorn, of its kind, I know, doesn't it just blow your mind? Equally, I know what you're thinking, we can't afford this, and you’re right, mom won it the other month, all expense paid get away, not a penny out of pocket, said she could’ve sold it for thousands, an amazing Christmas get away, now ours. “Wow, you did it,” visibly plucking huge drops from each eye, truly she was surprised, never seen anything like it in all her life, I know Lorn, right! Apparently all the Commandments of Jesus was about reigning us into the Kingdom of God as individuals, but all still as one New (divinely replenished) Bride, where most religious assembly is that warn against, a return to men’s beggarly elements. Mom is to say, that beast in the church, is the great falling away, meaning only God can bring them again His way, as you say. Yeah, weep not they told John, then showed him a multitude of varied worshippers without number, thus behold Lorn, the long prophesied fall of Mystery Babylon. I guess you do really do have to be careful, how you build upon another’s man foundation, especially, whose Builder and Maker is God, Awake, Apb, see here, www.ceasefire2015.blogspot.com www.2015thestampede.blogspot.com

  • 45 years ago The Holy Spirit revealed Jesus to me. I didn’t know what to say, i Just mumbled, ” I Want you” The Holy Spirit zapped me and turned my life inside out. i haven’t been the same since or ever will be. It took years to grow after that.

    The only objection to what is being said in this article would be the music part. I mean come on during the early times of the great revival the organ and piano was considered a devil instrument.

    Matthew 15:18-19 (KJV)
    18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth
    from the heart; and they defile the man.
    19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries,
    fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

    Man, you must live one miserable life without God.

    2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

    This passage says it all, is no surprise, we have to pray for time is short, Jesus is at the door.

    Geoffrey nailed it…right up there with Luther’s 95 Theses!

    Just a few updates which corroborates this expose:

    I have written two books on Rick Warren’s teachings published by Southwest
    Radio entitled: “Who’s Driving the Purpose Driven Church?” and “Rick
    Warren’s Global Peace Plan vs. Scripture” as well as devoted a website to
    exposing his teachings.

    So I would like to invite you to consider and comment on the following:

    Rick Warren’s claim that his PDL book is “the best selling non-fiction
    hardback book in history”:

    I invite you to view this documentary film and investigation of Rick Warren:

    Because the Holy Spirit does not dwell in you, the Baptists are just as spiritually dead as the Purpose Driven people (Romans 8:9).

    Dave, I have to wonder what your mother was like to raise such a foul potty mouth son. Perhaps you were not reared by two loving parents and maybe you had a rough time of it. If that is the case I apologize for my comment. God knows I am a puke and fall short in most areas. I feel sorry for both of us.

  • MICHAEL

    What references does the author use?

    I agree with some of the other posts. It doesn’t matter if you dress in jeans, use instruments other than an organ- (I admit I’m not sure what Heavy Metal instruments are) or praise using modern praise and worship. I’ll admit that some recent bible translations are wrong but KJV is difficult for many people to understand having not lived in the 17th century. Jesus said you’ll know my children by the fruit they bare and one can depend on the Holy Spirit for discernment. It’s when the focus changes from reaching the lost and discipling Believers you should be concerned. When the church changes from teaching righteousness to teaching tolerance an alarm in your head should ring. Not that the pastor is wearing jeans and not a suit or an electric guitar is playing. While growing up in the 80’s, I was taught that “to not be of this world” includes to not listen to Stryper . I never understood how a chord played on an electric guitar was sinful in spite of the lyrics which spoke of the love of Christ. But some of these folks had no problem with a popular song that ha a gentle sound but sang of an affair she had with a married man.

  • Warren failing to distinguish who are really brothers and sisters in Christ is alarming.
