I believe in the Bible as the total, complete and accurate Word of God. Not just what I want to believe, but the things I don't like either– I guess that makes me a fundamentalist. I believe in the right to home-educate my children, the government being smaller, and in the Constitution of this great country– I guess that makes me part of the Religious Right.
My hubby sent me a link from Worldview Weekend that talks about Rick Warren's attack on fundamental religions. You can see the entire article here.
But here is what is boiling my blood!!!! He actually has the audacity to state that:
“I'm not a member of the religious right and I'm not a fundamentalist …Today there really aren't that many Fundamentalists left; I don't know if you know that or not, but they are such a minority; there aren't that many Fundamentalists left in America.”
And then tried to clean it up by the following:
So, before a very diverse, secular and ecumenical audience, Warren says he IS NOT a fundamentalist. Then, in a later damage-control article, written for the benefit of Christian pastors who subscribe to his website and buy his Purpose Driven products, “Saddleback Church is unapologetically fundamentalist.” Handy, huh?
These are Rick Warren's word– not mine! From the website linked above.
I think he better wake up and smell the coffee. The churches that are preaching the Word of God are growing. They are producing true Christians– those that are stiving for the goal. Not just those that are giving lip-service and then living their lives however they desire. I am tired of “seeker” churches, shopping mall churches, and the watered-down Word of God! Preach the Word– it is all we need for life and Godliness and teach people about Him. (, I'll get off the soapbox now)
I think it would be interesting if all of us in the “minority” would show him just how extinct we are becoming. Here is the link to contact the Purpose-driven ministry.
