Is Anyone Else Tired Of The Diaprax Of False Teachers by Sandy Simpson

June 19, 2008

I ran across this statement by Rick Warren in the context of his P.E.A.C.E. plan that he recently made at a “three-day Purpose Driven Network Summit last week hosted by his home church, Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif.”:

Most churches only think about their own church and their own community,” he told attendants, who represented 39 countries and 50 states. “But our mission is the global glory of God.” (Rick Warren, Purpose Driven Network Summit, 5/08, as cited in Rick Warren Launches Coalition to Combat Five ‘Global Giants’, by Katherine T. Phan, Christian Post Reporter, Mon, May. 26 2008 04:31 PM,’Global_Giants’.htm)

Warren has made this same accusation before.

Today, most local churches are sidelined and uninvolved when it comes to missions.  (Rick Warren’s letter on his web site regarding the P.E.A.C.E. plan,

This broad brushing type of statement goes to the root of the diaprax that Warren has been feeding to pastors and churches that get involved in his P.E.A.C.E. “purpose driven” sideshow.  Warren is attempting to co-opt the agenda of Christianity while clearly not understanding that many churches have been the backbone of change in the world and support of that change financially.  It is true that SOME churches have done almost nothing, but to make this kind of statement about “most” churches without documented facts to support that claim is simply part of the diaprax to vilify the old to bring in the new.

This is rich coming from Warrren’s whose own P.E.A.C.E plan is nothing more than disingenuous words.
