'The Purpose Driven Life' EXPOSED!

By David J. Stewart | August 2007 | Updated July 2015

2nd Peter 2:1-3, “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”

Rick Warren ExposedRick Warren is the founding pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, and to get right to the point, he is a false prophet when the light of God's Word is shined upon his works. Like Pastor T.D. Jakes (Fakes), Rick Warren has exploited the name of Jesus Christ to become filthy rich. The following two part YouTube video exposing T.D. Jakes 100% applies to Rick Warren as well.  Prosperity Pimp T.D. Fakes - Net Worth $18,000,000 - Exposed!!! | Part Two (IMPOSTER ALERT!!!). These men talk about the things of God while filling their money-bags, dwelling in mansions and living like the Rockefellers. Ironically, the word “minister” means “servant,” but these imposters serve themselves more than anybody.

Mr. Warren has made millions of dollars selling books, including The Purpose Driven Church, and now The Purpose Driven Life, which has become a #1 New York Times Bestseller. As of July 2015 Warren's net worth is $25,000,000! There is much good material in Rick Warren's book, as with John MacArthur's books; BUT, they are misleading. If someone were to place one drop of sewer water into a gallon of milk, would you drink any? No way! Rick Warren is part of the Ecumenical Movement, that is preparing the apostate world to receive the coming beast system of Antichrist. Modern evangelicals replace love for truth, and compromise for holiness. God deliver us from deadbeat neo-evangelicals!

It's called “The Emerging Church Movement,” which was plotted a century ago by occultists like Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey. The Counterfeit Emerging Church Of Alice Bailey. We are now living in a post-modern culture that teaches there are no absolutes. Well, God never changes and His Holy Word is 100% absolute! You can trust your King James Bible!!! As outlined in the previous article link, Miss Bailey taught in her book “The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy” (pp. 510, 514) that the churches could actually become a “John The Baptist” so-to-speak, preparing the way for the Antichrist.

She suggests preserving the outer appearance of a legitimate church, and even retain the core tenants of the faith to maintain the illusion, but then teach New World Order philosophies from the pulpit ceaselessly. She specifically says churches should not preach anything revolutionary (radical), nor reactionary (controversial). To teach that Jesus is the ONLY way to Heaven is intolerant of other faiths. The Gospel is non-inclusive. The Gospel is radical. The King James Bible is non-inclusive of modern counterfeit versions. Rick Warren's “The Purpose Driven Life” quotes from 15 different Bible versions. Rick Warren would make Alice Bailey proud.

Bailey teaches that the emerging churches shouldn't offend anyone. They must be completely tolerant. They should teach popular psychology instead of Bible-preaching. Bailey teaches by subtle manipulation, the basic doctrines of the Bible can be manipulated to set forth New World Order teachings right from within the churches. ...

...The church must show a wide tolerance, and teach no revolutionary doctrines or cling to any reactionary ideas. The church as a teaching factor should take the great basic doctrines and (shattering the old forms in which they are expressed and held) show their true and inner spiritual significance. The prime work of the church is to teach, and teach ceaselessly, preserving the outer appearance in order to reach the many who are accustomed to church usages. Teachers must be trained; Bible knowledge must be spread; the sacraments must be mystically interpreted, and the power of the church to heal must be demonstrated.

...There is no question therefore that the work to be done in familiarising the general public with the nature of the Mysteries is of paramount importance at this time. These Mysteries will be restored to outer expression through the medium of the Church and the Masonic Fraternity, if those groups leave off being organisations with material purpose, and become organisms with living objectives.

On the back of Mr. Warren's book, The Purpose Driven Life, it states...

"This book will help you understand why you are alive and God's amazing plan for you--both here and now, and for eternity... This is a book of hope and challenge that you will read and re-read, and it will be a classic treasured by generations to come...The Purpose-Driven Life is a blueprint for Christian living in the 21st century..."

Did not God give us the Bible, His Word, to answer these questions?  Yes, God did!  You don't need to read Rick Warren's book, just look at Revelation 4:11...

"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."

We were created to PLEASE GOD! The Bible tells us how to please God, which is by faith (Hebrews 11:6). The Bible is our blueprint, not Rick Warren's book. No bestseller book can replace our need for the Word of God. It appears that everyone is publishing books these days on HOW TO live the Christian life, but all we need is the Bible. God's Word is sufficient by Itself to guide us...

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." (2nd Timothy 3:16,17)

Rick Warren Avoids the Subjects of Judgment, Hellfire & Damnation

No methodology, or level of religious commitment, can substitute for repentance towards God (Acts 20:21). Rick Warren's book is filled with oodles of religious jibber-jabber that would appease any heathen. To no surprise, the back cover of the book quotes Mr. apostasy himself, Billy Graham, as saying...

The Purpose-Driven Life will guide you to greatness—through living the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.”

SOURCE: Zondervan Publishers, 'The Purpose Driven Life,' by Rick Warren, ISBN: 0-310-21074-7

It would be nice if preachers today would say the same thing about the Word of God. Cannot God's Word guide us to greatness? I would rather seek greatness in the inspired Word of God, than from a flawed book written by a sinful man. Who are you going to trust, God or Rick Warren? Rick Warren claims to guide people into the purposes of God, but he butchers the truth by leaving out judgment, Hell, condemnation, repentance, the blood of Jesus, et cetera. God's Word is the answer my friend. If you want to find purpose in life, then you'd be wise to go straight to the source, the Holy Bible!

Repentance is not merely admitting that you have done wrong, or are a sinner. Repentance is seeing yourself as a guilty sinner in the eyes of a holy God, for violating His commandments in the Holy Bible. Judas knew that he had done wrong. He even returned the 30 pieces of silver and when refused, Judas cast them onto the floor and fled. That's not repentance unto salvation. Matthew 27:3 says that Judas repented, but it is an entirely different Greek word than repent concerning salvation. Judas felt personal remorse, but not divine conviction from God. The Bible says that people who love their evil (intention sin) WON'T come to Jesus (the light) to be saved, lest their deeds be reproved (John 3:20). Repentance is a change of mind, where you admit that you are a guilty sinner in God's holy eyes and need a Savior, and so you turn in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ, receiving His sacrifice on the cross as full-payment for your sins, believing that He bodily raised up from the dead after the third day. This is the Gospel (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

Rick Warren is deliberately vague, trying to be as inclusive without giving away that he is a false prophet. Warren continually pushes the line, inching toward blasphemy. For example: I've heard Rick Warren say that Catholics and evangelicals are more alike than different. He even likens Catholics as Christians, saying that “we're all on the same team,” and we both “believe that salvation is through Jesus Christ.” No way! Catholics are unsaved reprobates! They're not even in the same ballpark as born-again Christians. Just because Catholics believe in the Godhead, deity of Christ and His bodily resurrection from the dead doesn't make us family!!! Catholics will NEVER accept the Biblical doctrine of faith ALONE for salvation. Catholicism is a prisonhouse of religion that requires observation of the Seven Sacraments to get to Heaven. This is a Satanic false religion!!! Biblical Christians ever accept a false plan of salvation that requires human effort to get to Heaven. There is no harmony, no fellowship, nor agreement, between the Satanic Roman Catholic Church and Biblical Christianity. For Warren to even claim that we are all on the same team clearly evidences his supporting role as a Zionist shill in the New World Order. DEVIL ALERT!!!

Rick Warren's Book Perverts the Gospel Message

Rick Warren speaks of The Great Commission, but he never explains or defines the “Great Commission.” In fact, he doesn't even explain the Gospel in his book. On page 58, in the chapter, The Reason For Everything, Mr. Warren gives his lame version of how to have a relationship with God (notice that he refrains from using such terms as being “born-again,” or “saved”). He states...

“Real life begins by committing yourself completely to Jesus Christ.”

SOURCE: Zondervan Publishers, 'The Purpose Driven Life,' by Rick Warren, ISBN: 0-310-21074-7

Blasphemy! You cannot show me one Scripture from the Bible that requires a person to make a commitment to Christ to be saved. In sharp contrast, Romans 4:5 states...

“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.”

Real life begins by coming to Jesus Christ as a guilty, condemned, sinner. Romans 3:19 states, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.” Galatians 3:24 states, “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.” There can be NO salvation without the Law of God. We must know what we're being saved from. No one ever got saved who didn't know that he is a sinner. Rick Warren does not teach this effectively in my opinion. Rick Warren fails to establish the mindset in the listener that they are a condemned sinner on their way to a burning Hell, which they very much deserve for ever and ever!!! Whatever past experience you may think you've had my friend concerning salvation, if you don't know that you are a wretched sinner deserving of a burning Hell, you are not truly a born-again Christian.

Romans 6:23 states that eternal life is a “gift.” Now, I'm no rocket-scientist, but a gift means that there are NO strings attached. Salvation is NOT a swap, or an agreement, or an exchange, or a reward; rather, it is a free gift (Romans 5:15,18), paid for by the precious blood of Jesus. 

On page 58 Rick Warren further states...

“Receive Jesus into your life as your Lord and Savior”

SOURCE: Zondervan Publishers, 'The Purpose Driven Life,' by Rick Warren, ISBN: 0-310-21074-7

On page 58 Rick Warren further states...

“Receive his Spirit... I invite you to bow your head and quietly whisper the prayer that will change your eternity: 'Jesus, I believe in you and I receive you.'”

James 2:19 reads, “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.” Many false religions today believe in Jesus. Look at Benny Hinn's official website... he presents the basic elements of the Gospel; BUT, Benny Hinn is a false prophet, who exploits Christianity to make hundreds-of-millions of dollars. Benny Hinn believes that there are 9-members of the Godhead. Hinn is a lifelong Catholic, and a leader in the apostate Ecumenical Movement, yoking Charismatic evangelicals together with the spiritual whore of Roman Catholicism. Hinn is a chameleon, changing colors to fit whatever group he is fleecing. Truly the love of money is the root of all evil. Rick Warren has a new worth of $25,000,000 and is just as bad as Benny Hinn.

Rick Warren Leaves Out The Cross, Christ's Death and Resurrection

On his website at rickwarren.org, he has a drop down menu titled “KNOW GOD.” There is no mention of the elements of the Gospel. He doesn't mention the cross at all, nor Christ's death. He doesn't mention Christ's resurrection. Listen for yourself! Mr. Warren says some great things in his presentation. He is correct that a lot of people live a full life, but they don't life a meaningful life. Rick says that he hears three main things from people, that they are: exhausted, empty and enslaved. Who can fault Warren for these statements? Rick is correct that many people have much to “live on,” but they have nothing to “live for.”

Yet, where Rick gets into trouble doctrinally is when he diminishes salvation to a mere relationship with Jesus Christ. Warren cleverly, as a skilled craftsman, mixes truth with lies, perverting the simple plan of God's salvation. Pastor Warren states that God wants to give us a better life, and it is not based upon performance or works. Warren says that God gives us a new purpose by grace, costing us nothing. Warren strays away from Biblical theology and terms, instead professing that he has been “a follower of Jesus Christ for the past 40-years.” Warren speaks of salvation as “a connection.”

Warren tells people in his video that “God is not mad at you,” but is “mad about you!” Yet, Psalms 7:11 says “God is angry with the wicked every day.” John 3:36 says that God's “wrath abideth upon” Christ-rejecters (like unbelieving Muslims, Roman Catholics and Judaists). Warren is correct that man cannot save himself. Notice carefully that Warren never mentions God's judgment, Hell, guilt, fire or eternal damnation. What an incompetent preacher!

It gets worse. Warren toward the end of the video gives this false plan of salvation. Rick says first to “believe.” Second, he says to “receive Him.” Warren says that we receive Jesus into our life by “admitting that you need Him.” Rick says to “confess to God” that you want to switch, you want to change your mind, you want to go a different direction—going from meaninglessness to purpose, from despair to joy, from hopelessness to hope, from darkness to light, from guilt to forgiveness, turning from self-centeredness. Rick says this is what it means to “repent,” changing our mind about how we want to live. Thirdly, Warren says you must “invite Him into your heart.”

Warren leads the viewer to pray (and this is horrible heresy) that they don't understand it all, but they know something is missing in their life. Rick says to tell God, “The good life's not enough. I want to live the better life. I don't want a religion, but I do need a relationship with you. So as much as I know how, Jesus Christ, I want to open my life to you, I want to get to know you. I want to say yes to you. ... and I want to live a life of purpose” Warren then says it doesn't matter what religion you belong to, just pray this prayer and mean it in your heart. If you haven't noticed it yet, Warren failed to once mention the Gospel. What about Jesus dying on the cross? Warren never mentions the cross. Warren never mentions Christ's shed blood for our sins. There's no mention of Christ's burial, nor of His bodily resurrection from the dead three days later. Oh my! Warren tells the viewer to write to him and just say, “Rick, I prayed the prayer, I asked Jesus Christ into my life.” My friend, that is not the Gospel. That is a false plan of Salvation.

At the end of the video, Warren places another unbiblical stipulation upon the viewer, telling them that it wouldn't be right to marry somebody and then hesitate to tell others about it... “Honey, let's get married, let's just not tell anybody about it.” Rick says it's the same way in salvation. Rick says, “If you really love somebody, you're not ashamed of them, you tell 'em about it. And if you really meant business a second ago, you need to tell somebody. Say, 'You know what, I prayed that prayer with Rick Warren.'” Oh my!

The Bible plainly teaches that many of the chief rulers believed on Jesus, but they DID NOT CONFESS HIM, because they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. This clearly teaches that a person can be saved and yet refuse to publickly confess Jesus Christ to anyone. We're saved by believing, not by confessing. John 12:42-43, “Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.”

Beware Of The Devil's Sugar Substitutes

In his plan of salvation, Rick Warren speaks of “living the better life.” He admits that a good life is not enough. Looking good, feeling good, and having the goods is not enough, he says. Family, friends and fortune aren't enough, he adds. Something is missing inside of all of us without God, Warren concludes. None of these are the Gospel message as taught in the Scriptures. Warren sounds and looks good, but his message is one of doing whatever it takes to make the world a better place. Warren is highly irregular, saying different things to different crowds. Rick's book on “The Purpose Driven Life” does NOT give a clear Gospel. He avoids the topic of sin. He doesn't warn the reader of a burning Hell. Scrutinize Warren's books and sermons and you'll find that they are missing anything about the cross, Christ's resurrection and the necessity of believing the Gospel to be saved. My humble opinion is that Rick Warren is an unsaved man who has been hired by the Illuminati as a tool of deception. They've made him filthy rich. Warren is a mere puppet, who does what his handlers pass down to him from headquarters. Don't believe it? Watch Warren flip-flop on Proposition 8.

Obviously, salvation is more than a mere prayer, and all the prayer in the world cannot save a person who hasn't repented. Rick Warren focuses on a prayer, as if some magical form of hocus-pocus. Salvation is of God, NOT man (John 1:12-14). Salvation is a supernatural act of God in responses to our faith in the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Every hellbound Catholic and Mormon believes the basic Gospel, i.e., that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and resurrected the third day. Obviously, there is more to being saved than just acknowledging some facts. Mormons deny the deity of Jesus; thus, they have a false Christ. Catholics sinfully ADD the Seven Sacraments to be saved; thus, perverting the Gospel. The Biblical Gospel EXCLUDES all forms of self-righteousness. The Gospel has been subtly perverted by many false prophets today, including Ray Comfort, who insists that sinners forsake their sinful habits to be saved.

Rick Warren merely says to believe and receive through a prayer, but there is no acknowledgement of one's guilt of sin (Romans 3:19). No one ever got saved who didn't know that he or she is a sinner. You've got to know what you're being saved from. Nor does repentance mean to give up your sinful behavior, for that would be human effort (works) added to God's simple plan of salvation. Repentance is realizing and admitting before God the Father that you are a dirty, guilty, hell-deserving, sinner, for breaking His holy Commandments. Without repentance, no man would ever come to Jesus Christ by faith for forgiveness of sins and salvation.

There are numerous popular false teachings today which merely say to “trust Jesus” to be saved, or to “pray this prayer,” or to “start a relationship with Jesus,” or to “invite Jesus into your life,” or to “follow Christ.” These are not the Gospel. Rick Warren does not preach the Gospel. WHAT IS THE GOSPEL? (an awesome printed sermon by Pastor Harry Ironside, 1876-1951). 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 defines the “Gospel” as Christ's death on the cross for our sins, His burial, and His bodily resurrection three days later. Admit that you are a wretched guilty sinner in God's eyes, and believe (rely/receive) the Gospel as payment for your sins and you are saved!!!

Salvation requires genuine repentance, which false prophets don't mention. Many televangelists today, and other imposters in the pulpit, lead people to believe that salvation is nothing more than "—inviting Jesus into one's heart." That is not true! Show me that in the Bible? There MUST be Biblical repentance! A person must realize their guilt before God, and their condemnation under God's Law. It is only then that a person can turn in faith to Jesus Christ, believing on Him for forgiveness. Rick Warren is eerily silent concerning the issue of sin, which can only lead to false conversions. The average person today doesn't recognize divorce, feminism, abortion, gambling, booze, smoking, lust, cursing, pornography, gossip, or immodest dress on women, as sins.  It's not enough for preachers to simply refer to wrong doing as "sin" anymore. 

The world has redefined "wicked" to means something "strikingly good."  Preachers need to CALL SIN BY NAME!  I mean abortion is cold-blooded murder!  I mean feminism is straight from Hell!  I mean Harry Potter is of the Devil.  I mean Oprah Winfrey is a false prophet!  And I mean Rick Warren is an imposter, a false prophet who couldn't preach his way out of a paper bag.  Rick Warren's book is a joke, a disgrace to the name of Christ.  I love the Bible, because God gives us the cold hard facts, like 'em or not!  Rick Warren, like the rest of modern-day liberals, speaks of love, love, love; BUT, the Bible states in Psalm 7:11, "...God is angry with the wicked every day.

Spirit Led Or Purpose Driven?

The Bible states in Romans 8:14...

"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."

The Word of God teaches that Christians are LED by the Spirit, NOT driven by a purpose.  As believers, we are to OBEY the Word of God as our Final Authority.  The Holy Spirit ALWAYS leads a believer using the Word of God.  God DOES have a purpose for the Christian's life (Romans 8:28; Ephesians 1:11), but you won't find it in a #1 New York Times Bestseller.  Rick Warren is correct to say that God has a purpose for our life, but you would be foolish to expect to find it in Mr. Warren's wishy-washy book.  Rick Warren's book is ecumenical.  He quotes from FIFTEEN different bible versions (see Appendix 3: pg. 325,326). 

Rick Warren wrote The Purpose-Driven Life in such a compromising manner, that most false religions today would readily accept, read, and promote his apostate book.  In sharp contrast, the Word of God declares... "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution" (2nd Timothy 3:12).  Something is very WRONG with a professed "Christian" who writes a book, that becomes a #1 New York Times Bestseller, and sells millions of copies, in an apostate nation that has forsaken God.  My website angers many people.  I get cursed all the time.  It just means that I'm doing something right, because the Bible says that Christ-like believers would be persecuted! 

I'm tired of all the "experts" who claim to have all the answers to our life.  Romans 8:26-28 states, "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."  Hindsight is 20/20; but the future is uncharted territory.  Oftentimes, we will not know what to do next in life. 

What decisions should we make?  What do we do?  Romans 8:28 states that there will be times when we won't even know what to pray.  All we can do is seek God's wisdom from His Word, ask the Holy Spirit to guide us, make the best decisions we can, and then trust upon the Lord.  The Word of God teaches us to seek guidance from the Holy Spirit (John 16:13), not expect to be DRIVEN by a purpose.  Although God does have a purpose for each believer, there is nothing in the Scriptures which would lead us to expect to be driven by it.  The love of the truth may compel us, but it is ultimately the Spirit of God that drives us as believers (Zechariah 4:6).

This world is filled with people who THINK they are doing God's will, but they are serving the Devil (Matthew 7:21-23).  Just because you THINK you have a purpose in life doesn't legitimize your cause or means.  Psychic medium, John Edward, will tell you that his purpose in life is to help others; yet, he is a child of the Devil, and is deceiving people about spiritual matters through his demonic familiar spirits.  The same is true concerning Oprah Winfrey, James Van Praagh, and all the other New Agers today, who believe that there are MANY paths to the light (but it is not the Light of Jesus Christ).

As believers, we understand that our purpose here on earth is to PLEASE GOD (Revelation 4:11).  Hebrews 11:6 tells us that it is impossible to please God without faith.  Faith unlocks the windows of Heaven.  Faith is what causes us to do things for God.  If anything, the Christian life is a FAITH-DRIVEN life, not a purpose-driven life.  It is our faith in Jesus Christ that causes us to OBEY the Word of God, as the Holy Spirit leads us. 

Rick Warren Doesn't Believe We Have God's Preserved, Infallible Word Today

Rick Warren quotes from FIFTEEN different bible versions (see Appendix 3: pg. 325,326).  It appears that Rick Warren is being blown about by every wind of doctrine... "That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive" (Ephesians 4:14).  Bible-believing Christians use the King James Bible.  All modern versions are corrupt!  I'm sick and tired of hearing preachers attack the King James Bible.  Those 54 scholarly men knew what they were doing when they prepared the King James Bible in 1611.  Things are not as they seem today.  In Psalm 12:6-7, God promised to PRESERVE His Word unto all generations.  Rick Warren errantly states on page 325...

"No matter how wonderful a translation, it has limitations.  The Bible was originally written using 11,280 Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek words, but the typical English translation uses only around 6,000 words."

SOURCE: Zondervan Publishers, 'The Purpose Driven Life,' by Rick Warren, ISBN: 0-310-21074-7

Rick Warren is WRONG!  Here's the truth...

There are 8,674 different Hebrew words in the Bible, 5,624 different 
Greek words, and 12,143 different English words in the King James Version.

SOURCE: Amazing Bible Facts and Statistics

The King James Bible contains 12,143 different words Mr. Warren!!! 

In addition, of all the Bibles being sold today, the King James Bible is the ONLY one that still uses italics to show which words were ADDED by the translators for clarity.  For example: Psalm 14:1 states, "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God."  In the authorized King James Bible, you'll notice that the words "There is" are in italics, meaning they were not in the original Hebrew.  The translators added those two words because they felt it necessary to convey the true meaning of what the Scripture was saying.  Thus, a fool denies the existence of God, which is quite different from saying "no" to God.  The translators were honest enough to allow us to look over their shoulders and see what they did.  This is genuine scholarship which is unequally in modern times.  In comparison, the New International Version (NIV) contains NO italics.  God has blessed us with the King James Bible. 

Apostasy In The Emerging Church

Pope Francis may be Rick Warren's Pope, but he sure ain't mine...

Illuminati Puppet, Pastor Rick Warren, Calls Jesuit Pedophile Devil Francis, “OUR POPE”!

Pastor Warren is a brilliant speaker, saying many awesome and helpful things for people in general; but he is more of a religious psychologist, just like Joel Osteen is more of a motivational speaker, than being Bible-preachers. Rick Warren is the most dangerous type of false prophet, because he is suave and likable. Warren is a professional orator, a funny comedian at times, having that “I'm your friend” kind of personality in the pulpit; yet, he is an actor, pulling on the same rope as the Devil. Pastor Warren also uses the modern counterfeit Bible versions from Hell, instead of the faithful King James Bible.

Please read my recent article titled, The Counterfeit Emerging Church Of Alice Bailey. Occultists foretold that they would infiltrate, corrupt and use the churches to lead the world's masses into the New World Order. It is happening! In March of 2015, a shocking 20,562 Presbyterian ministers in 10,083 churches agreed to recognize same-sex marriages. These are houses of the Devil, not New Testament churches!!! I wouldn't give you a dime for one of those prophets of Baal. WOE UNTO AMERICA'S APOSTATE CHURCHES!!!

Many churches today won't even consider hiring a pastor without a second degree in psychology in addition to theology. They want an expert in dealing with people, so they think. May I say, a genuine man of God who preaches and lives the Word of God is unequalled. The great need of the hour is preaching preachers who walk with God and preach the truth!

My Conclusion About Rick Warren And His Book

After reading Mr. Warren's book on The Purpose Driven Life, I have concluded that he is an unsaved modernist, and his book is just another smokescreen on the market today, designed to inoculate people from genuine Christianity. God deliver us from these wishy-washy imposters today, who speak about spiritual matters; but fail to proclaim the power of the precious LITERAL blood of Jesus Christ, the woefulness of sin, and the damnation in hellfire awaiting all Christ-rejecters. You must understand that Pastor Rick Warren is a member of The Council On Foreign Relations (CFR). That is alarming, because the CFR's sole purpose is to bring in World Government. Warren is an Illuminati puppet, clearly evidenced by his continual flip-flopping, straddling the fence, to please his masters and maintain the illusion of a legitimate church, just as Alice Bailey taught in her book, The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy (pp. 510,514). Also, see Theosophy, The Church And Lucifer Worship.

Here is a powerful quote from Pastor Texe Marrs:

Satan's Purpose—Exposing Rick Warren's Purpose-Driven Movement as an Illuminati CFR Scheme to End Christianity and Set Up Satan's Ultimate Global Religion...

Shocking evidence that the Marxist, Jewish neo-con controlled Council on Foreign Relations has recruited top evangelicals Pastor Rick Warren, Southern Baptist leader Richard Land, and others in its seedy campaign to foster a globalist religion devoid of any New Testament spirituality. Rick Warren’s Purpose-Driven Movement, borrowed right out of the pages of Lucis Trust and New Age organizing manuals and textbooks, is designed to totally rip the heart out of true Biblical Christianity. The whole planet is now being groomed for a diverse, new faith, based on the sacredness of all religions, the despoiling of Christianity, individual greed, environmental insanity, and sensual partying and celebration. Babylonian hedonism and sodomy are going to be enthroned in a diabolical orgy of religious ecstasy, all orchestrated by the Illuminati. —Pastor Texe Mars

Apostasy is all around us today! Beware of anything that Billy Graham endorses! The Purpose Driven Life is of the Devil, because it gives readers the impression that love, good works and dedication to Christ are all that is required to have eternal life. I tell you, you are a dirty-rotten sinner, guilty, under the condemnation of God's Law, and you will burn for all eternity in the flames of the Lake of Fire if you don't repent (i.e., change your mind) concerning your sin, and turn in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness and salvation. You are a sinner and Jesus is the Savior. NO amount of religious commitment, love, good works, dedication, prayers, Bible study, or self-improvement can help you get into Heaven. In fact, placing your faith in any of those things will guarantee you a place in Hell. You need HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, i.e., Jesus' righteousness (2nd Corinthians 5:21).  Rick Warren won't tell you these things, but I just did. 

Note that Pastor Warren on his website addresses the issues of sin, vaguely, painstakingly avoiding offending anyone. Warren is a Zionist shill for the New World Order. As Alice Bailey taught in her writings, Rick Warren is maintaining the outer appearance of a real church, while introducing new ecumenical philosophies which promote cooperation between the world's different religions. The Holy Bible warns in 2nd Corinthians 6:14-17 that there is no fellowship between darkness and light.

You don't need a Purpose-Driven Life.  What good is that?  What you need is a Spirit-filled life (Romans 8:9,14), which can only begin by becoming a born-again believer, by way of the LITERAL blood of Jesus...

"Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." -1st Peter 1:18,19

"Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us." -Hebrews 9:12

"...and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin." -1st John 1:7
