Islamic Society convention lands appearance from Rick Warren

warren.jpgThe Indiana-based Islamic Society of North America will be holding its annual convention -- the largest yearly gathering of Muslims on the continent -- in Washington, D.C. over the Fourth of July weekend.

And while convention leaders are holding out hope that President Barack Obama might make the convention his latest stop in his outreach to the Muslim world, the convention has landed another pretty big fish as a featured speaker.

Purpose-Driven pastor Rick Warren has agreed to appear at the convention and be part of its main session discussing the convention's theme -- "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." Joining Warren for the session is ISNA President Ingrid Mattson and noted Muslim scholar Hamza Yusuf.

I don't have a problem with Warren speaking to the Muzzies, as long as he presents the Plan of Salvation at the round table.

Exactly. God may be able to use him there. After all, he did use a donkey once to get Balaam’s attention and many people here think the same of Rick Warren...

Frankly, thus guy is a joke. Where are the Thomas More’s in our society willing to fight and die for what is true instead of securing accommodations for false doctrines.

I have been following the watering down of the faith -— from “Willow Creek Church Association” for many years....I left a church 10 years ago that went off the deep end after joining the Willow Creek “seeker sensitive” movement.

I find it interesting that these guys give a stage to the likes of Clinton, Gore, and Obama, but never mention or help out a conservative....

The don’t preach the message of the Gospel, they preach the message of “lets all get along” = Tolerance.

So many members of this evil CULT in one place and I'll bet most of those attending know someone in Hamas or Hezbollah! Some would describe this as a target rich environment.

There will be a wealth of information to be gathered in the small groups that will meet, not in the general meeting, which will be mostly BS.

Do you think God used Rick Warren when he went to Syria to hobknob with Assad while they were killing and injuring US troops inside Iraq?

Not me.

I have no idea. He used Balaam’s donkey for His purposes so why not Rick Warren?

Well, Jane Fonda used the same shtick in Hanoi.

Good day.

Well he didn’t when he spoke to the Jewish groups where he spoke; seems to have no criticism of Mormon faith, so I guess we can’t expect him to preach the gospel message here either.

God is in Control-and as Christians we stand firm-even when Christians claiming to do God’s Work speak contrary to God’s Word!!Ephesians 5:11-and have nothing to do with the unfruitful works that darkness produces. Instead, expose them for what they are.

Well, I haven’t heard yet what Rick Warren has to say in that country, so I will not judge him. I’ll leave that to all of you.

Do you know what Rick Warren is saying to them? Why not wait and then judge? I doubt he’s as bad as Hanoi Jane.

Do we know what God’s purposes are for Rick Warren? DO WE? He may use him to bring about the end times. God’s aware of what’s going on and we are not. I will wait and see what he’s saying over there before I pounce on him in judgement, like so many FReepers.

Nancy Pelosi pulled the same “business”. What are God’s purposes for her?

You should read the Constitution re Treason, not that it matters anymore.

I have NO idea what God’s purposes for any of them is at this point. He has a plan, and He will fulfill that plan, with them or without them (and that goes for us, too).

I think we all fall into God's plan otherwise why would we be? Moreover God seems to want us involved to the advancement of human life. And it's hard to see how that might come about but through tempered criticism, among other things.

Israel means to "struggle" with God. I struggle with Him constantly.

His grace to You and Yours.

Rick Warren prayed in the name Islamic name of “Isa”, the false Islamic jesus,at the inauguration. The ultimate blasphemy before the world, invoking the name of a false god before all of America. Might as well prayed to Baal. I don't have any respect or interest in anything this man has to say.

“...let God be true, but every man a liar...” Romans 3:4
