Apprising Ministries has long believed that sinfully ecumenical Southern Baptist megapastor Rick Warren benefits greatly from living in this postmodern time.

The reason being, his “file card orthodoxy,” as Christian apologist Bob DeWaay once put it, would never survive a generation where more people were able to use critical reasoning skills.

Especially when one starts considering just how often Rick Warren uses social media like Twitter to tweet and exchange feet in his mouth. Today we have yet another example:


Typical of Seeker Driven and Emergent pastors, Warren will first set up his straw man, which he then knocks down in order to appear impressive to his multitude of deceived followers.

No one credible is involved in any “well-intentioned fad” of finding the Cross in every verse of the Bible; we look for our blessed Savior Christ Jesus, Who finished His work on that Cross.

By doing so, He made way for God’s Gospel of repentance and forgiveness of sins in Jesus’ Name; salvation by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in that finished work of Jesus Christ alone.

The truth here is that faithful Christians always delight in looking for our glorious andy majestic, great and mighty Master in the texts of the Bible because, after-all, it is His Story:

You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. (John 5:39-40)

Incidentally, Jesus is speaking of the Old Testament. Christ said Scripture is about Him, yet oddly enough, Rick Warren and his army of Seeker Driven people-pleasers seem to have no trouble making it about themselves.

As I see it, all such as these—seemingly with a disdain for the Cross of Christ—would do well to meditate upon something else Jesus said in Holy Scripture as well:

The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
(Luke 6:45)
