This week I received a 17 page letter from a local IFB church pastor condemning the 40 Days of Purpose / PDL. Here is a list of his reasons why Rick Warren belongs "in the same category as the Mormons and Witnesses" (yes that is a quote): 1. He elevates his book to the level of inspiration. 2. He denies the inerrancy of the KJ 1611. 3. He extends gratitude for the hundreds of contemporary and classical writers and teachers as the shapers and teachers of his life. 4. He endorses Roman Catholicism. 5. He uses a practice known as dialectic, which moves a lukewarm church into apostasy. 6. He holds a bold disregard toward hymns and spiritual songs and promotes all kinds of music. 7. His material will further accomplish a business mindset to the already Incorporated government churches. 8. He promotes the deliberate sowing of tares among the wheat. 9. His interdenominationalism and non-denominationalism = ecumenicalism. 10. He opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped. Of course since this bother (excuse me I meant to say brother) has sent this to me b/c "God has put it upon his heart" I must assume he is right and Warren is wrong. My ministry will never be the same. I am so thankful for strong IFB fundies like this who are able to keep the rest of us straight.
