“Only within a social context individual man is able to realise his own potential as a rational being” - Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right'
"There's no such thing as a lone ranger Christian.... We're better together and we belong together." 'Pastor' Rick Warren.
Sound alike don't they? Is it any wonder seeing the same ethos is embraced by both men? You see, in the coming communitarian, socialist, one world government, individualism is out and community is in. No more personal relationship with the Messiah but a communal understanding of the potential of the group. Sound like the church you're in? This article will help explain why.
Our last few reports have addressed the drive for Global Governance and the consequences of accepting such a godless, socialist evil. We've seen the players involved and their agendas synthesised into antichrist's alliance. But how could the Church come under the sway of the evil one and his pending kingdom on earth? Enter comrade Rick Warren, the purpose driven puppet of Beelzebub.
An unashamed member of the CFR (the propaganda mill for the promotion of Global Governance) Warren has seduced the undiscerning throng, particularly those within Charismania, into following his socialist and humanist ethos which was all along, about bringing synthesis to fundamentally opposed faiths. The global government model – which includes a single global faith, will not tolerate 'intolerance'. That is, Christian fundamentalists who remain steadfast to the commands and ordinances of the One true God Yahweh. These same fundamentalists are the 'unnecessary pillars' that Warren claims 'only hold things up' – namely progress toward global governance.
In his November 14, 2007 directive to pastors, "What the Bible says about handling disunity" from his Pastor.com website, Warren outlines that:
"You've got to protect the unity of your church. If that means getting rid of troublemakers, do it."
Of course Warren, master of double speak, when referring to 'trouble makers', actually means 'those who are opposed to his UN friendly way of doing church'. Such trouble makers are the likes of those who continue to challenge Warren, signatory of the interfaith Yale Letter, which calls for tolerance and compromise of beliefs between faiths, to justify how any true Christian can find any kind unity and common ground with a religion which openly denies the messiah ship of Y'shua (Yahshua), and whose god 'Allah', is clearly NOT the God of the Scriptures. But then that is Warren's UN commission after all, aiding and abetting in the construction of 'the' one world religion.

Warren has exposed himself as a UN change agent within the Church and 'pastors' all over the world including 'visionaries' Ashley Evans (Paradise COMMUNITY Church, Adelaide South Australia), Brian Houston (Hills Christian Life Centre Sydney Australia) et al, who blindly continue to lead their fuzzy, feeling-based followers after Warren's socialist ramblings, now need to don the sackcloth and repent.
Don't believe Warren is all about bringing all faiths together under the banner of unity in diversity? U.S. Watchman Paul Proctor makes the following observations in his article Rick Warren: From Tolerance to Respect...
"Christianity’s premier change-agent and facilitator, Rick Warren, is now attempting to move the compromised church, again via the Hegelian Dialectic, on to the next step of the global “transformation” toward that long-awaited one-world religion, telling Muslims at the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America: “Tolerance is not enough.”
According to a report posted on the ISNA website, Warren went on to say: “People don't want to be tolerated, they want to be respected, they want to be listened to. They want to be valued."
Adding to that, he said: "I am not interested in interfaith dialogue, I am interested in interfaith projects…Talk is very cheap."
First of all, if “talk is cheap” and Warren is “not interested in dialogue,” why is he dialoging with the enemies of Christ? And, if “talk is cheap,” what’s the value in “listening” to the talk of those who reject Jesus as Lord and Savior? This is just a brief example of the disingenuous doublespeak Warren is widely known for.
You see, by doing this from an Islamic stage, many applauding Christians watching him, Christians desperately wanting to be loved and accepted by the world, will be expected to do the same themselves and reciprocate by “listening” to, “respecting” and even “valuing” Muslim beliefs, practices and a pagan god named “Allah.”
This is nothing new for Warren. It is business as usual. I have addressed his infamous interfaith activities in previous articles ad nauseam which I will provide links to at the conclusion of this piece so as not to waste time covering old ground. For the same reason, I will also include links to previous articles on the subject of “tolerance.”
Tolerance, you see, was merely a transitional tool that the church growth movement employed years ago to uproot Christians from their scriptural stubbornness and move them ever-so-carefully, via the dialectic, away from divisive biblical absolutes (so called “traditions”) in order to “unite” them with a more “diverse” (ungodly) world and call it “evangelism” – even though one would be hard pressed to find the word “tolerance” in scripture.
This is how you widen the gate and broaden the way to spiritual success and church growth – by creating imaginary shortcuts to salvation and self-serving end runs around personal sacrifice and suffering that make more people like you in the name of Jesus.
Dictionary.com: “Respect” – (verb) – to hold in esteem or honor
Ten years ago, most Christians would never have considered “respecting” any form of paganism or those who practice it, including Muslims. No, they first had to learn how to tolerate it. And with the help and encouragement of smiley-faced church growth leaders and promoters, Christians now tolerate paganism – so much so, that it has now infiltrated and found a home in the evangelical church. So, that being accomplished, it’s apparently time to discard the now obsolete tool of tolerance, move forward, and learn how to “respect” paganism.
This is just a continuation of the same new age “unity in diversity” agenda we’ve known about for years and have heard gurus and global socialists espouse from academia to Hollywood. As always, the compromised church simply follows along at a distance, doing whatever they’re told – always impressed by the charm, cleverness and credentials of worldly men leading them astray.
The CGM refuses to recognize, much less teach or preach, vitally important scripture verses and biblical principles like “Friendship with the world is enmity with God” (James 4:4) and “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers” (2nd Corinthians 6:14) choosing instead to twist the Apostle Paul’s 1st Corinthians 9:22 account of being “made all things to all men” into a license for practicing “whatever it takes” to promote global peace and unity and the brotherhood of man as if the Lord Jesus cares not what Christians do as long as we do it in His name and involve everyone – which is heresy.
As a side note, I was mildly encouraged, if not amused to finally see an article in the Baptist Press this week, titled, When the bubble bursts, criticizing some of the practices and principles of the church growth movement – (be it too little too late) – its author mentioning the damage it’s done over the years in the church’s search for “relevancy,” which frankly, is a ridiculously unbiblical notion in and of itself – something that begs repeated rebukes.
You see, I submitted numerous articles to the Baptist Press and other Christian publications like it from around late 2000 to 2002 in a vain attempt to warn them and their readers about the church growth movement and its leaders. I should also point out that the Baptist Press still publishes pro CGM articles and authors; so, it’s not like they have repented or anything – they’ve only attempted to demonstrate more “balance” in their reporting, if you want to call it that.
Now that the dumbed-down church is practicing “tolerance” as a “biblical” principle, Warren can now move Christians further down the road to ruin by encouraging us to “respect” other religions, beliefs and values as if that too is biblical. After we learn to honor and esteem those who worship Allah, what’s next in the transition – embrace Allah? Will Warren then tell us that respect is not enough?
Oh sure, the “America’s Pastor” cloaks it all in benevolent lingo – but the new age objective is still the same: Bring all the world’s religions together into one big happy family to find common ground and do good works.
Well, blending Christianity with paganism is not a good work. And I would suggest that the “common ground” found will ultimately be worshipping and serving the antichrist whether Warren recognizes that or not.
I have no doubt that many Christians who follow Warren’s lead have been convinced that his interfaith efforts are just a shrewd way of getting non-defensive, open-minded access to Muslims and others for purposes of proselytizing and conversion. Maybe he’s just looking to expand the market for Purpose Driven products – who knows?
Whatever the case, the end is the same: Confusing the undiscerning and uniting good and evil into a synthesized spirituality of interfaith kingdom building here on earth where all gods, religions and beliefs are considered equally valid.
“Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.” – 2nd Corinthians 4:1-5"
Infiltration and deception have been tools of conspirators through the ages, and the Church has been a primary target! After all, God warns us that "the whole world is under the sway of the evil one." (1 John 5:19) One of his most effective schemes is to redefine God's Word and divert Christians from His unchanging Truth to man's shifting ideals.
For example, God calls us to serve the poor and fills our hearts with love for the needy. That's why His true followers around the world have willingly given their lives to share His truth and love in perilous places. But today's world-centered church illustrates a different kind of service. Designed to please man rather than God, it trains its servers to hide the "offensive" truths of the gospel.
Like Rick Warren, it uses the Bible to validate its purposes but emphasizes organizational behavior rather than Biblical beliefs - in short, deeds instead of creeds. Behind its noble appearance hides a postmodern version of the century-old "Christian Socialism."
The new focus, spreading through the Church like a cancer, is 'unity' - a worldwide oneness reflected in the growing union between the East and West. Marxism is striding toward totalitarian world domination, and thanks to Rick Warren and his duped supporters, its ideology is now deeply embedded in the Church. For many years we have asserted that 'Untiy that comes at the cost of the truth is a unity not worth having!' That truth has been lost on many professing Christians stumbling blindly behind the latest UN Johnny come lately's.
A recent article in the Russian Pravda titled "American capitalism gone with a whimper" has been spreading a somber view of this nation. Unlike its old Soviet-era namesake, this new Pravda may actually be telling the truth. It reminds us that the current transformation, which has now become all too visible, actually began long ago.
"...the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple.... The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was.... Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
"First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture.... Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their 'right' to choke down a McDonalds burger... than for their constitutional rights....
"Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches... were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the 'winning' side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another....
"The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. ... His spending and money printing has been record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more than another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe....
"These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more than a whimper to their masters.
"The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world how free he really is. The world will only snicker."
As with the world, under the socialist change brought into the Church proper by infiltrators such as Warren the shift of emphasis has gone from:
Knowing to interpreting
Methods to discovery
Individualism to community
Knowledge to character
Humility to empowerment
Telling to inviting
Sinner to 'seeker'
Obedience to licence
Salvation out of Hell to an invitation to realise your 'potential'
If your fellowship displays any or all of the above, it has already crossed over to the broad path.
Many have yet to make the connection between Marxist thought and the women's movement especially when it comes to children friendly workplaces and child care centres. Under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin, the communist party platform called for the “establishment of nurseries (child care centres) for infants and children in all shops, factories, and other enterprises that employ women”
It was and continues to be in these institutions that the parental right to educate and instruct children was / is removed and replaced with mandatory state instruction which was / is evolutionary based and completely hostile to Christianity. It is absolutely reprehensible that the Paradise Community Church is cashing in on the lucrative child care market with their Paradise Child Care Centre on Darley Road in Paradise South Australia. How they can reconcile this activity in light of Titus 2:5 is anyone's guess. But you see, the church has become so dumbed down by feel good facilitators pandering to the dopamine drunk pleasure seeker's demands, that the absolutes of the Word are rarely if ever obeyed, let alone taken seriously, especially by those clearly living beyond their means. When all Child Care Centres come under mandatory state control along with all education facilities as is the UN mandate, the true nature of this 'female right' will become self evident.
Again we remind readers that while professing believers are out 'pursuing their purpose', Satan is 'preparing their prison'. And while the church of the endless gimmick continues to lull to sleep those deceived, pleasure driven 'seekers' who feel right at home with their sin in the collective, ever craving some cheap, guiltless entertainment to while away their unredeemed existence, Satan's machine marches on both in their midst and right under their noses, and when it finally manifests none of them will know what hit them even though they have long been warned.
And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony. And they did not love their soul until death. (Rev 12:11)
