Al Mohler Ignores Rick Warren's False Teaching

Slice of Laodicea has a short article on Gene Robinson (homosexual Episcopalian minister) and Rick Warren praying at the Inauguration of Obama.

In it, Ingrid rightly is frustrated with Al Mohler who discusses these two here. What I found interesting is absolutely NO condemnation for Rick Warren at all by Mohler. Rather, Al says, "Representation is undoubtedly symbolic, but Rick Warren and Gene Robinson represent radically divergent worldviews and incommensurate goals. They are not two very different representatives of one religion. They are instead two very symbolic representatives of two very different religions."

HELLO?? Rick Warren is JUST AS LOST and is a FAR WORSE CANCER than Gene Robinson. The subtlety (until recent months) of Warren's error confused many, and cause others to embrace him as a brother in Christ but who's style or method is just different than they would prefer. Rick Warren's works gospel is no different than the Episcopalian one. Both these men are in rebellion and have NO GOSPEL; they are in the SAME CAMP. If Mohler can't see this, he needs to be quiet and stay home. Seriously. This is really getting annoying.

I knew Mohler was soft on Warren a few years ago because my former pastor mentioned how he was disappointed with Al's lack of a stand against Warren back then.

This is why I haven't trusted Mohler. He's willing to ignore the GROSS ERROR of one of his own SBC pastors instead of rake that man over the coals.

Remember what someone once said: “Discernment is not simply a matter of telling the difference between what is right and wrong; rather it is the difference between right and almost right.” That would apply re: Warren.

For specifics on why Warren is a false teacher (and this makes Al Mohler's ignorance of this glaring) go here.

Denise,
I believe Mohler is gone. He has just introduced at his school a doctorate in spiritual formation, calling it "cutting edge".

Sorry to say.

I'm not familiar with Warren's "works gospel"...how is he preaching a works gospel. I'm not sure about what he believes or teaches, but he seems to teach salvation by grace, thru faith..if anything it's watered down by lack of reference to repentance, sin, and hell...

But ephesians does say we are saved by grace, THRU faith...

duststorm,

I've done research on Warren and I can tell you he does NOT teach biblical truth.

A starting point to read what he has proclaimed would be here:

A few quotes of his:

“I happen to know people who are followers of Christ in other religions.” —Rick Warren Aspen Ideas Festival, The Aspen Institute, July 6, 2005, “Discussion: Religion and Leadership,” with David Gergen and Rick Warren

“...You may be Catholic or Protestant or Buddhist or Baptist or Muslim or Mormon or Jewish or Jain, or you have no religion at all. I’m not interested in your religious background. Because God did not create the universe for us to have religion. He came for us to have a relationship with him.” —Rick Warren United Nations, Interfaith Prayer Breakfast, September 2005


With someone slick as Warren, its not always what he says, but what he doesn't say; its also whom he shares the platform with.

Dear Surph's Side,

I note that you have have exposed Warren on your site and confronted Mohler.

I have written two books exposing Rick Warren, published by Southwest Radio Church (Dr. Noah Hutchings, who also wrote a book exposing Warren).

Here is my latest expose on Warren:

Thank you James. I've included it on my post about Piper and his latest tweet about how its good to feel good about doing good but don't seek praise. Warren is one of the biggest self-promoters in history, even if his PDL book doesn't make the history he claims. ; ) Piper should rebuke his buddy Warren.
