RICK WARREN: Obama is "amazing" and has "got the stuff" to be Prez...
TownHall ^ | 12.18.06 | Kevin McCullough

Posted on 12/18/2006 10:33:05 AM PST by jodiluvshoes

Remember back when Rick Warren was adamantly denying that his inviting Barack Obama to his HIV conference had anything to do with politics?

Well - if that's the case - why is it that he's now TALKING POLITICS on CNN and sending the message that "Obama's Da Man"?

So do you think anyone will look into his church's tax exempt status over this?

It has happened to many others, of less visible stature, the IRS came in and took away their status.

I hate when that happens. I'm in no way a follower or fan of Rick Warren or any other "famous" preachers. I have read his books though.

What is is with people like this? They start out good. Get too big for their britches and immediately sell out and get really really stupid.

I once admired Rick Warren; participated in Purpose Driven Life and Purpose Drive Community programs are our church. I no longer have the same opinion of him and no longer would spend one dime or one minute on anything he has to offer.

The guy has a right to his personal opinion. If he does not say it from the pulpit, it is not relevant to the church's 501(c)(3) status.

How disappointing he is suddenly hitting the airwaves this way just as I did his "40 Days" with our church.

He seems like a good person but maybe he's just loo-loo and too rose-colored glasses naive.

Me too. However, before I pass final judgment I would appreciate seeing a link to a direct quote from him. If anyone has it, I would certainly like to see it. Thanks.

Power corrupts I guess. It happened to my former pastor who has apparently decided he's much too busy for the congregation in the church "he" built. He's become "important". Shame when it happens.

Pastors are just people, they do not have a lock on beign faultless. I do think there are christians who are dims. I know several. For a long time I thought it was not possible, but I think many are good God fearing people and just on a different side of issues than I am.

LOL! I had th chuckle at your analogy. Too bad it is so true. The Name it and Claim it - God wants you to be happy; new "gospel" has nearly replaced the Biblical Gospel of the Death, Burial, and resurrection of God's Word.
It is a watered down, something for everybody, gospel that we were warned of:

Gal 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
Gal 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

So I guess Warren has gone back on that "I stay out of politics"
mantra I've heard him speak in at least a couple of interviews...

Not all dims are for abortion. There are many who are very involved true christians who are with most of us on that issue.

But there's a danger when the pastor goes from being the pastor to being "he who must not be approached". When a pastor becomes a "star" or achieves some sort of celebrity status, there can be a form of "pastor worship" that takes place-where they can do no wrong & people are expected to go along or go period. Sometimes it's the pastor who refuses to allow opposing opinions.

How many nationally prominent, elected democrats are anti-abortion. Dem politicians are the subject of the remark, not specifically dem voters.

I am just saying... that there are libs who are not for abortion and our christians. I would give you their names but it would not help, they are just people and not in leadership. I stated that I used to think there was no way you could be a christian and be a lib, but after meeting and knowing some of these people, it is clear that they do not believe in all of the libs causes, just as their are consvs who do not go 100% GOP agenda.

Rick Warren's greatest desire is to become a celebrity, he's doing well at it. He wants access to the beautiful people, fawning press attention, etc.

He has found another man as shallow as himself in Barack Obama. They justify each other, even though deep down, both of them know they are frauds.

They look at each other and say "you complete me".

If his personal opinion is whacko on things like the ultra-left Obama, then it stands to reason that his other opinions on things Biblical are also just as whacko...it goes to show his sense (or lack thereof.)

What the hell is with the verbal copulation over Obama?? I tried to watch the Sunday talk shows this week, and it seemed like everyone was litterally masterbating while fantasizing about Obama.. it was disturbing.

Like watching a bunch of brainwashed cult addicts marching to their orders.

A guy who's 2 years in the Senate somehow is God and Cult-like????? Sorry, but I'm just not buying that $hit and shinola they are selling.

Let him ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING, and then we can talk.

I know!But their party platform is pro-choice. They vote for people who support the pro-choice position and put godless atheists like Leahy, Kennedy, Durban et al. They enable evil and will be held accountable.

It sad but lots of good Germans voted for the Nazis too. The true sense of how real righteous justice is dealt with in a situation like this was brilliantly dealt with in the movie "Judgement At Nuremburg"
