Anything, repeated often enough, will be believed by the masses. And if you’re not careful, thoughtful and understand the Word of God and the enemy’s relentless attack on or distortion of the Truth, you’ll be swallowed up in the easy-believeism or the magnanimity of ‘leaders’ in ‘the church’ today. You just really gotta be paying attention — both to what they’re saying and what they’re meaning.
These are incredible times in which to be alive – as free people, as abundantly rich people, as believers in Jesus… for many, many reasons, this is an incredible time, in the history of the world, to be alive.
As believers, we’re instructed in the Word, to be wise. We’re instructed to watch the signs of the times – that in the last days, perilous times should occur – giving way to all sorts of depravity and distortions or misrepresentations of the Truth. Read Joseph Farrah’s “Give The Glory To God!” and then, Rick Warren’s response: “Give PEACE A Chance” (get your Bible out and read what the Word really says – compared to paraphrases Mr. Warren uses) and then read Mr. Farrah’s very succinct, carefully written response to Rick Warren’s reply: Who Gets the Glory?
This is a great study in the ‘think’ of today and the talk of today in ‘mainstream’ churches… the subtle nuances just might be missed if you’re not careful.

thank you for taking the time to post things like this. I don’t get to spend a lot of time on the internet anymore so I come to reliable places like yours to get a heads up on what is going on. I like to bookmark links and such and come back to read when I have a moment. I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate it.
I noticed Warren had to use various modern translations to get them to say what he wanted them to say. I looked them up in older reliable version and they didn’t say even close to what he insisted they said. Unfortunately we can get the Bible to say anything we want it to say if we distort it enough, take it out of context, or use a translation that was not taken from the original language.
I had read Warren’s article, but had not seen Farrah’s original article, so I didn’t know what it was referring to. Thank you for putting it all together. It was very insightful. Because of the resources you have been making available on your website, I have come to see the fallacy of Warren’s ministry. A couple of years ago we provided the Purpose Driven books to all our family members for Christmas and even did a Bible study with other believers. I feel sick now that I was duped by him and this book.
