Social Change "There are some really good things and points that Rick Warren brings out. But they always seems to be mixed with so many confusing and theologically weak points that you go crazy trying to keep it all straight. You will read a great point and then he'll throw in a quote from Mother Theresa or Aldous Huxley and your mind reels.
There's a push to paint God as a smiley face in the sky - but you have to ignore His justice and anger!
Plus, when you are the only 'naysayers' in a group it gets old - especially when no one else seems to have anything but praise for the book.
Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. So Andy and I bought the book, read it quickly and were troubled by some of its claims, promises and paraphrased "Bible" references. But we also found many true and encouraging pages.
Since we didn't want to criticize Rick Warren or confuse those who apparently were helped by his book, we left it on the shelf. By this fall, Rick Warren's manual on the Christian life had become the topic of discussion in churches around the world.
The letters from concerned visitors multiplied. After reading the book again, we could no longer ignore its subtle distortions, its half-truths, its conflicting messages or its pragmatic permissiveness: Some may say, "don't touch God's anointed," but we don't believe any leader is so "anointed" that his teaching is beyond Biblical accountability.
While only God can judge the heart of a person, we are called to help each other follow His guidelines, not be driven by today's new management systems. As most of you know, Rick Warren, the founding pastor of Saddleback Church in Southern California, has been leading the way and breaking new ground in today's Church Growth Movement.
With over 50, names on his church roll, he models the success of the church management process he outlined in his earlier book, The Purpose-Driven Church. He also founded pastors. More thanpastors and church leaders from over countries have attended Purpose-Driven Church seminars in 18 languages.
Peter Drucker calls him 'the inventor of perpetual revival.
What this legendary management guru began teaching large corporations decades ago has now been applied to God's churches as well as to communities and governments around the world. Since the new methods seemed to "work" equally well for churches as for corporations -- and since the measured results offer statistical "proof" of "success" -- pastors from countless nations have embraced and implemented Drucker's marketing approach to "doing church.
He said that what he's all about is this search for community, the search for where people and organizations find community for non-economic satisfaction It's sort of like Freud and psychoanalysis. Peter was the first, for example, to help managers understand that they had to define their businesses from a customer's perspective.
They come and they buy. When this process is applied to churches, it works! With polls and surveys, a church can easily uncover the "felt needs" of the unbelievers in the local community -- then target their services to their intended consumers.
Pastor Warren learned that lesson early from Robert Schuller -- the "possibility thinker" who called Mikhail Gorbachev a Christian despite the protests of this unrepentant Communist.
The people-pleasing methods that worked so well at the Crystal Cathedral would prove just as effective at Saddleback. Doesn't this strategy turn God's principles upside down? Yes, but it also attracts the spiritual diversity needed for the dialectic process -- the heart of today's transformation in churches as well as in business, education, government and other organizations.
