    Not sure what Blair means by this but it sounds like something to be concerned about. And it does not surprise me that RW is part of this.

    YEA! Let's throw rocks at him! Big ugly rocks with Bible verses on them about what happens to liars and cheats and adulterers. Because that's what we should do to a faithful Christian brother who is reaching people for Christ in his ministry.

    One more reason

    PreachinJesus, I don't see this as throwing rocks at RW. Our standard is always the Bible, and when a teacher contradicts the Word of God, we should be made aware.

    I read about this on another site. This effort is interfaith. No where in Scripture is it allowed that we "partner" with people of other faiths....bring the lost the gospel, yes, but partner with them, no.

    This is the link to the folks on the advisory council.

    http://tonyblairfaithfoundation.org/about-us/who-we-are/advisory-council.html

    This foundation is not only ecumenical (Blair is Catholic, needs to be saved, not have his foundation supported), but is also interfaith (note the inclusion of unsaved Jews, who also need the gospel)

    The gospel is not the Kingdom now, Christian reconstructionist version of the gospel...solve the social ills of the world...but the gospel is to seek the reconciliation of each man, woman and child to Christ through His atoning Sacrifice.

    Let us pray that Rick Warren will turn from this gospel which is not the Good News, but another gospel, and help bring people to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. My intent is certainly not to condemn the man, but to see his error and pray that he will repent and be used of God mightily!

    Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called extremists. :tear:



    Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness,
    because the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
    Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil against you because of Me.
    Be glad and rejoice, because your reward is great in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    Matthew 5:10-12 HCSB

    May God work mightily through our brother in this opportunity to share the good news to the world.

    Rob
