Here’s the link to a couple of fine articles by my friend Bob DeWaay, who is author of Redefining Christianity one of the best books refuting the skewed teachings of Rick Warren. I’m pleased to tell you that Bob has told me he is now making this excellent book available at a cost of just $8 each in bulk for those who wish to order multiple copies for their friends and church leaders. You may contact DeWaay’s ministry directly by clicking on the book title above.  

These two articles below will help you gain very important background for what are going to be the critical issues of our time as we fight the man-centered semi-pelagian non-Gospel of the new evangelicalism and its sister the neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church now dominating the American Christian Church.

The first article is Key Problems with Free Will and pastor-teacher Bob DeWaay points out:

Most free will theology is based on philosophical considerations that are imported to the discussion from outside the Bible. Since the Bible does not directly discuss the meaning of “free will,” the concept must be derived from passages about human bondage to sin and human responsibility and culpability before the Law of God. You will see this as we examine literature on the topic.

The second article is entitled Recovering Reformation Theology where DeWaay correctly tells us:

The Purpose Driven movement can cite this business management guru approvingly only because they have a faulty theology of human ability. For example, Rick Warren says, “It is my deep conviction that anybody can be won to Christ if you discover the key to his or her heart. . . . It may take some time to identify it. But the most likely place to start is with the person’s felt needs.”

If this were true one could use modern marketing principles to sell people on their need for Christian religion and convince them to convert in order to find satisfaction of their felt needs. But it is not true… This theological perspective is fully at odds with the doctrines of the Reformation. The Reformers taught human inability and bondage to sin.
