These lengthly videos record many of Rick Warren’s false teachings, including Chrislam, his worldwide P.E.A.C.E. Plan, Catholicism, allegiance with the Pope, Mariolatry, universalism, promotion of the New World Order (NWO), his disparagement of Christian Fundamentalists, easy believism, no repentance required and all inclusive salvation, no mention of sin or condemnation, and much more. Among the authors on these videos are John MacArthur, Phil Johnson, James Sundquist, Gary Gilley and Jack Van Impe. Rick Warren is a litmus test. Are you a Berean or a Laodicean?
In Christ, Pastor Steve
Beware Of The False Gospel Of Rick Warren
Rick Warren’s theology would suggest that an active murderer, adulterer, fornicator, sorcerer or homosexual will go to heaven as long as they have “accepted Christ.” Rick Warren omits the new birth and our new heart. He avoids the doctrine of repentance like the bubonic plague. Without repentance, one cannot be saved – Luke 13:3,5 – see this verse below. His theology is simply a referendum on Biblical illiteracy.
John 3:3 King James Version (KJV)
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Luke 13:3,5 King James Version (KJV)
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Rick Warren is a man whose teachings take a long time to unravel. This blog site is filled with a great deal of his apostasy. Many articles that highlight just a few of his heretical teachings can be found in the category – “Emerging Church.”
This article emphasizes the fact the Rick Warren disparages the Christian Fundamentalists, even comparing them to radical Muslim fundamentalists! Rick, by the way, envisions himself in charge of the “New Reformation,” which emphasizes deeds and not creeds. Even though most Christians sense that apocalyptic end time events are soon coming to our fallen world, Rick is going to implement his world P.E.A.C.E. plan. Never mentioned in his teachings, is the Rapture of the Church, Great Tribulation, Second Coming and Millenium. Brother Rick has a better idea. Those nasty Biblical doctrines like sin, repentance, and the atoning blood, all bother brother Rick, so he has found that the Purpose Driven Church/Life books, are much handier and easier to believe than those old fashioned and archaic Bibles. When he does quote the scriptures, he cherry picks only the non offensive passages, and uses whatever translation he can find, that would best convey his intended message. He blasts born again believers for following the entire list of fundamentals. According to Rick Warren, fundamentalists not only are legalistic and narrow minded but they are also one of the big enemies and are motivated by fear. The fundamentals that are very near and dear to me, and the bedrock of my faith, are despised by Rick Warren. Oh yes, here are the five fundamentals that Rick seems to think only legalistic Christians adhere to:
1)The Deity of Christ.
2)The Virgin Birth.
3)The Blood Atonement.
4)The Bodily Resurrection And Second Coming.
5)The Inerrancy of the Scriptures Themselves.
No, you are right – you cannot make this stuff up. By the time Rick Warren strips the Gospel of the above fundamentals, the teachings of eschatology, the need to repent, the heavy cost of sin, and the reality of hell, the only “gospel” left would be a generic, down sized one size fits all theology that would offend no one. The “Jesus” of Rick Warren can be found in any religion – Buddhism, Islam, Hindu, etc. Rick Warren is a universalist who does not believe in the narrow way.
Matthew 7:13-14 King James Version (KJV)
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Sometimes his real theology comes out when he makes statements in public, such as telling Muslims: “What is the matter? We both believe in the same God.” Yes, those Freudian Slips are momentary lapses when the truth comes out. Below are a couple of the many, many articles that highlight Rick Warren’s stance on Christian Fundamentalism. In His Service, Pastor Steve

Print Page Rick Warren
Rick Warren is a Southern Baptist pastor that has had a vast influence in Baptist churches. His Saddleback Church averages over 20,000 people a week. His book The Purpose Drive Life has sold over more than 30 million copies. Even John Piper has praised his theology. Rick Warren is not a leader that Baptist churches should be following. In this post we’ll just scratch the surface on the dangers of following Rick Warren.
Rick Warren has a great distaste for fundamentalists such as myself. Rick Warren says:
“Now the word “fundamentalist” actually comes from a document in the 1920s called the Five Fundamentals of the Faith. And it is a very legalistic, narrow view of Christianity, and when I say there are very few fundamentalists, I mean in the sense that they are all actually called fundamentalist churches, and those would be quite small. There are no large ones.” (The Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, Event Transcript, Myths of the Modern Mega-Church, Monday, May 23, 2005)
So if you follow the Five Fundamentals of the Faith you are legalistic and narrow minded. Warren also predicts that fundamentalism, of all varieties, will be “one of the big enemies of the 21st century.” “Muslim fundamentalism, Christian fundamentalism, Jewish fundamentalism, secular fundamentalism – they’re all motivated by fear. Fear of each other.” (Philadelphia Inquirer, The purpose-driven pastor, Paul Nussbaum, Jan. 08, 2006)
So according to Rick Warren fundamentalists not only are legalistic and narrow minded but they are also one of the big enemies and are motivated by fear. They are no different than Muslim fundamentalists according to Warren. Just so we understand who Rick is talking about let us look at the Five Fundamentals of the Faith.
I would say any born again believer would follow this entire list. So in essence Rick Warren is blasting born again believers which makes you wonder where he stands with God on a personal basis.
With Rick Warren’s poor grasp of the gospel it is of no surprise that he would sign the Yale Center for Faith and Culture covenant A Common Word Between Us and You. The document states things such as “That this common ground consists in love of God and of neighbor gives hope that deep cooperation between us can be a hallmark of the relations between our two communities.” Muslims don’t worship the same God as Christians (John 14:6). To them Jesus was just another prophet and to consider Jesus as God is blaspheme (Surah 4:171 and Surah 5:731). Another thing the document states is “That so much common ground exists – common ground in some of the fundamentals of faith – gives hope that undeniable differences and even the very real external pressures that bear down upon us can not overshadow the common ground upon which we stand together.” It is ironic that Warren blasts the true fundamentals of Christianity and instead signs on to something like this.
Rick Warren also is in the habit of letting wolves into his church (Matthew 7:15). In 2011 Warren brought in doctors like Mark Hymand and Mehmet Oz into church for his Daniel Plan. His Daniel Plan is to help with the health and wellness of people. If you look though at these doctors it certainly won’t help with the spiritual health and wellness of people.
One of the doctors Warren brought into his church, Mehmet Oz, was voted as one of the 500 most influential Muslims. Oz supports what is called integrative medicine which is combining conventional medial treatments with things like hypnosis and energy healing. His wife is a master of Reiki which is a form of energy healing. Another doctor, Mark Hyman, isn’t any better. He promotes new age medicine and false religious leaders such as the Dalai Lama.
As I said before this just scratches the surface of the dangers of following Rick Warren. We all need to prove all things and hold fast that which is good (1 Thessalonians 5:21). Like the Bereans we need to search the scriptures daily to see what we are being taught is true (Acts 17:11).
RICK WARREN SAYS CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALISM WILL BE ONE OF THE GREAT ENEMIES OF THE 21ST CENTURY
Rick Warren of Purpose Driven Life fame says that Christian fundamentalism will be “one of the big enemies of the 21st century.” He lumped Christian fundamentalism in with “Muslim fundamentalism” and “secular fundamentalism” (“The Purpose-Driven Pastor,” The Philadelphia Inquirer, Jan. 8, 2006). Thus the Christian fundamentalist who merely seeks to take God’s Word seriously and to live it and to preach it faithfully before his Heavenly Master is as dangerous to this world as a Muslim terrorist or a radical atheist. Warren said that Christian fundamentalism is motivated by fear. One of the many great problems with this statement is that the Bible often speaks of fear in a positive manner. Paul was afraid that the devil would deceive the believers through false gospels, false christs, and false spirits (2 Cor. 11:1-4). We should therefore follow the apostle’s example and fear spiritual deception, both for ourselves and for others. The Bible says pastors who sin should be rebuked before all “that others also may fear” (1 Tim. 5:20). Would that Saddleback Church would take that verse seriously and rebuke their heresy-preaching pastor publicly! Noah is commended because he feared at God’s warning (Heb. 11:7). We are to pass this earthly sojourn with fear (1 Pet. 1:17). We are to save some by fear (Jude 23). May God’s men today fear God enough to obey His Word and to preach the whole counsel of God, to “reprove, rebuke, exhort,” to warn the people of false teachers like Rick Warren. Where, by the way, are the “staunch conservative” or “nearly fundamentalist” Southern Baptist leaders who are exposing their fellow Southern Baptist Rick Warren’s errors? They ridicule men like me for warning about errors within the Southern Baptist Convention, but they don’t lift a voice on their own. Well, I think I will just keep on warning!
APOSTATE PASTOR RICK WARREN AND ELTON JOHN HOLD HANDS IN CONGRESS, JOKE ABOUT KISSING EACH OTHER
Rick Warren and Elton John holding hands, joking that if they kissed, it would be the kiss heard around the world. Do you think Rick Warren warned one of the world’s most famous homosexuals about the sin of sodomy? No, that would be legalistic and judgmental. Rick does not approve of those nasty, narrow minded and bigoted Christian Fundamentalists. They were on a joint venture fighting AIDS together.
Rick Warren’s Religion of the Anti-christ
Rick Warren has been exposed at every prophecy conference that I have attended. All of the speakers see gross errors in his theology. Rick Warren encourages Christians NOT to study prophecy because God did not intend for us to understand these things. As you can see below, Rick’s time is spent, attempting to bring in the millenium himself, as he reveals his New World Order (NWO) colors through hobnobbing with secular, political and religious globalists from all over the world. Christians identify the NWO with the Tribulation Period and the reign of the Antichrist. Rick Warren endorses and is part of the NWO. His paganism is revealed for all with eyes to see, and the following is yet another slice of his arsenic laden pie. Warren has removed all doubt about his beliefs from any spiritually discerning Christian who truly examines him:
If your pastor does not teach the truth of Bible prophecy, you ought to find a church that does.
Satan is to be feared as a serpent, more feared as a devouring lion, but most feared as an angel of light. Satan is the great deceiver, hence his false teachings will mimic and resemble the truth, yet not measure up. Rick Warren homogenizes other religions with Christianity, drastically lowers the bar for salvation, and totally omits key doctrine such as repentance (without which one can be saved), Bible prophecy, hell, judgment, God’s wrath, conviction over sin, the abomination of sodomy, etc., etc., etc. Any discerning Christian who knows the Bible and is truly saved, instantly recognizes the counterfeit message, easy believism, and watered down, feel good “gospel.” The masses follow him like the Pied Piper. Have you ever really wondered why Barack Hussein Obama selected Rick Warren for his first inaugural message and prayer? Warren was the perfect fit for Obama’s purposes. …and look what Obama turned out to be!

Billy Crone ~ The Vatican & The Last Days Deception
Billy Crone is senior pastor of Sunrise Baptist Church in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Vatican is leading our planet into one of the greatest periods of deception in the history of mankind. Christians should not be surprised because Jesus warned us. Matthew 24 covers this theme. Jesus’ first warning in this chapter is: “Watch out that no one deceives you. Many would come in My name and claim that I am the Christ. Many will be deceived. If it were possible, they would deceive even the very elect.” The characteristic of this time is it is a period of great massive deceit.
Deceptions From The Vatican:
1)Visions of Mary There are apparitions of the Virgin Mary all over the planet. Thousands of people claim to see the glowing Virgin Mary, hear her voice, they experience healing from Mary, and claim that the “Queen of Heaven” transcends human description. II Corinthians 11:14 “Even Satan can transform himself into an angel of light.” These sightings are demonic. Mary claims to be the intermediary between man and God. (I Timothy 2:5) Mary claims to be the Advocate, sent to the world by the Father and the Son. Jesus is our Advocate. (I John 2:1) Mary claims she came to save the world, yet John 3:16 plainly refutes this. Mary claims she can save us from the wrath to come. Jesus saves us, not Mary. (I Thessalonians 5:9) Mary claims she is the ark of peace, salvation, and entering heaven. John 14:6 refutes this apostasy. People who are Biblically illiterate fall for this apostasy. These apparitions are not Mary, they are demons, false signs and wonders. Jesus warned us about false Christs, saying many would come in my name.
2)Visions of UFOs They are demons, and once again they are supported by the Vatican. The Vatican is searching for ETs and alien life. The Vatican Observatory Research Group (VORG) heads these operations. They are searching for ETs with the most powerful telescopes in the world. Why is the Vatican searching for ETs? They believe aliens are going to be our new saviors and messiahs who will save our planet from the calamities to come! The Vatican believes that ETs have not fallen into sin, and we must listen to them and not the Bible. The Gospel will have to be thrown out. Catholic priests say they will baptize aliens, because no matter how many tentacles they have, they still have a soul. They claim the aliens are the Biblical angels, and that we fell but they did not. Pope Francis said that he too would baptize an alien. The Vatican is claiming Jesus was an alien, and that the virgin birth was part of an abduction. Jesus was a “star child.” More people in America today believe in aliens than they do in God! Read Matthew 24:4-5. Pope Francis, the Vatican and Catholicism are ready to receive the aliens. This is all happening today. These lies would deceive the entire planet and explain away the rapture of the church just like that! What happened to those people? They were taken away temporarily by aliens, and will be prepared for the utopia that is coming to the earth, and will rejoin us later.
3)Visions of One Religion Revelation 13:3,4,8-9 “The whole world was astonished and followed the beast…” They worshipped the dragon/beast. He suffers an apparently fatal head wound and comes back to life. The Antichrist will rule, and the False Prophet will point people towards him. The Vatican has been promoting this for a long time. Pope John Paul II has long been trying to unite all of the world’s religions under one leadership. They include Buddhists, Hindus, Snake Worshippers, Muslims, Witch Doctors, etc., who all gathered at the Vatican. The pope said they were all praying to the same god! This spiritual fornication is coming from the Vatican. Pope Francis is planting olive trees in Jerusalem with the world’s religious leaders. The leaders are now calling for a united nations of religions. They want a global headquarters to control the religions. Pope Francis said unrepentant atheists and homosexuals can go to heaven. Read I Corinthians 6:9-11. The Vatican is promoting this one world religion. The Protestant Church in masse, is going back under the umbrella of Rome. Ken Copeland is an example. He is a false teacher and a Word of Faith heretic. He piped in a message from the pope into his Protestant Church. One of the Catholic messages is that “Luther’s protest is over and we are all Catholics.” This is how far it has progressed and it has never been here before since the Reformation, when men and women were murdered, beaten, strangled, drowned and burned at the stake, just to give us a copy of the Bible. There are many Charismatics with the pope as well. Rick Warren, however, is the poster boy for evangelical protestants aligning with popery. Warren calls Pope Francis “…our new pope.” The Vatican sent a delegation to Saddleback Church. Warren gushes over Pope Francis’ good deeds. Rick Warren shares how he loves the Catholic television stations, and talks about “The Chaplet of Divine Mercy, mother Angelica and us Christians.” Rick relaxes and listens to “Hail Mary, full of grace, mother of God.”
Luke 21:28 “When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
Behold, I am coming quickly.

Well, It All Depends To Whom He Is Speaking With…
It is one thing for a seasoned politician to equivocate. We expect it. But for an ordained Southern Baptist minister to trample on theological truths and reverse himself in order to accommodate his respective audiences tells me all I need to know about him. Hear for yourself:
Strike the red picture code below to see pictures of Saddleback megachurch pastor Rick Warren and sodomite pop singer Elton John holding hands:
Rick Warren unites with Elton John in order to “fight” AIDES, yet fails to share the Gospel with this lost soul. Is there any end to the apostasy of Rick Warren? How much evidence does one need in order to determine that Rick Warren is an apostate and heretical teacher? He was mentored by well known universalist Robert Schuller. Rick Warren recently held hands with admitted homosexual Elton John as they fought against AIDES together, rather than warn him about the eternal consequences for unrepentant Sodomites. Then incredibly Rick Warren said that: “If they kissed, it would be the kiss heard around the world.” Rick Warren allies himself with Muslim clericals and leaders, attempting to harmonize the truth of Christianity with a lie. The merger false religion is known as Chrislam. Rick Warren calls the pope “our pope” and reveals his appreciation for the teachings of Catholicism, thus trampling on the blood of the martyrs and the entire Protestant Reformation. Rick Warren believes he is the leader of, and we are at the threshold of a new “reformation,” and has presented his well known world wide “Peace Plan.” No wonder he never mentions end times Bible prophecy and the millennium that not he, but Jesus Christ will bring. (Emerging Church pastors never mention end times prophecy, and eschatological/apocalyptic events that are soon to come. Wise people should ask why is this? Think). Rick Warren’s purpose driven books feature a watered down, convoluted, anemic, partial and apostate “salvation,” and omit any mention of sin, hell, damnation, God’s wrath, judgment and the need for repentance in order to be truly saved. At President Obama’s first inaugural, Rick Warren prayed to Isa, the Islamic name for Jesus Christ as a mere prophet, and not the only begotten Son of God. …and now Rick Warren is waffling and vacillating, and revealing an acceptance of sodomy, which God calls an abomination (Leviticus 18:22, 20:13; Romans 1:26-27). He has a forked tongue: When speaking with Christians he says marriage is for one man and one woman. Then he pulled a one eighty on Larry King so as not to offend homosexuals. The list and record of Rick Warren’s atrocities could go on and on, but this cross section alone certainly reveals Rick Warren to be a false prophet. What are my thoughts in reference to his teachings and beliefs? He may be America’s pastor but he will never be mine.
