http://www.safeguardyoursoul.com/html/rick_warren__purpose_driven_de.html


Pastor Warren has excited Mukono Christian University in Uganda with his Purpose driven life, a heretical master piece. Rick Warren like the American TBN word Faith apostates,is being used by the devil to disguise(hide)the true colours of the American New world order system and its imperialism.These christian hypocrites are fornicating with the state, and will say nothing about the exploitation of the poor by the state.

A painstaking biblical analysis renders this master piece, luciferian , anti-bible, anti-Christ and anti-Christian. It is amazing that many intellectuals in Mukono Christian University and Uganda as whole can not critically examine this so called purpose driven life. The correct title for Warren’s book should be PURPOSE DRIVEN LIES, you can call it purpose driven rubbish if you like. Pastor Rick Warren is not teaching BIBLE but rather psychology and psychotherapy. See, the critical expositions of the text below.


Yes, Jesus associated with sinners, but he certainly didn't borrow his teachings from the Pharisees or any other false teachers. Clearly there is a very tangible connection between Rick Warren's SHAPE teaching on personality and the psychological theories of Carl Jung. Not only does Warren base his teachings on parallel psychological concepts, but he uses exact Jungian terms to make his case. By focusing on assessing and developing one’s personality as the key to a successful life or ministry, Warren, like Jung, is promoting a reliance on one’s inner self instead of on God’s transcendent truth and the working of the Holy Spirit. As a popular Christian teacher, how can Warren ignore the crucial biblical truths of the sufficiency of Scripture and the power of the Holy Spirit to perfectly furnish every Christian with the ability to minister according to God's purpose?

“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, thoroughly furnished unto ALL GOOD WORKS.” II Timothy 3:16-17

“According as his divine power hath given unto us ALL THINGS that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:” II Peter 1:3

THE LAST DAYS of RICK WARREN, TIM LaHAYE & HANK HANEGRAAFF

http://www.the-tribulation-network.com/dougkrieger/prophetic_sequence_pt23.htm

Quotes from Warren’s book


1. “When you minister in a manner consistent with the personality God gave you, you experience fulfillment, satisfaction, and fruitfulness.” (The Purpose Driven Life, p. 246)


There is absolutely no biblical precedent for this position. Personality typology has never been a criteria for God choosing someone for ministry, but is in great part grounded in Jungian psychology.

2. “…when you are forced to minister in a manner that is “out of character” for your temperament, it creates tension and discomfort, requires extra effort and energy, and produces less than the best results. This is why mimicking someone else’s ministry never works. You don’t have their personality.” (PDL, p. 245)


Did Paul rely on personality assessment to guide his ministry? Hardly...
“God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised, God has chosen, the things that are not, that He might nullify the things that are, that no man should boast before God.” 1 Cor 1:27-29


“And He has said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.’ Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Cor 12:9-10

3. “You may be driven by a painful memory, a haunting fear, or an unconscious belief.” (PDL, p. 27)
“(Guilt-driven people) often unconsciously punish themselves by sabotaging their own success.” (PDL, pp. 27-28)


The “unconscious” is the foundational concept of both Freudian and Jungian psychology, and has no biblical basis whatsoever. In fact, Scripture does not allow for the idea that people are “driven” by an “unconscious belief.” By endorsing the idea of the unconscious, Warren is promoting the Jungian belief that people must analyze the forces of the unconscious to discover their life’s purpose.
According to Scripture, any driving force outside of God’s will is sin, no matter where it resides. Psychology, however, downplays our personal accountability for sin by making the “unconscious” the ultimate reservoir and bastion of unavoidable human instinct.

“And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because [he eateth] not of faith: for whatsoever [is] not of faith is sin.” Romans 14:23


4. “God made introverts and extroverts… He made some people ‘thinkers’ and others ‘feelers.’” (PDL, p. 245)
“Your personality will affect how and where you use your spiritual gifts and abilities. For instance, two people may have the same gift of evangelism, but if one is introverted and other is extroverted, that gift will be expressed in different ways.” (PDL, p. 245)
“Ask yourself questions:… Am I more introverted or extroverted? Am I more a thinker or a feeler?” (PDL, pp.251-252)

Warren is explicitly using the specific terminology of the psychological typology theory originally conceived by Carl Jung. Despite the claims of his supporters, Warren has clearly based his Personality Theory (the "P" in his SHAPE teaching) on the unbiblical foundation of Jungian psychology.
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Colossians 2:8

“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.” 1 Cor 2:12-13


5.God rules everything in his everywhere and is in everything(Warren: 88)

THIS IS PANTHEISM AND EASTERN MYSTICISM

6.Everything that happens to you including your mistakes, sins are all pre-planned. God planned for your debt…God planned for the death of your loved ones…God planned for your divorce (Warren: p. 195-196)

Rick warren lives no room for personal responsibility .If I decide to go and buy a prostitute on the street. Is that God’s plan??? If I decide to join the occult. Is that God’s plan??? There is a need to harmonize Calvinism and armenianism.The freedom God gives to human persons does not make him less sovereign.God is absolutely sovereign and in his absolute soveregnity,he has chosen to give human beings freedom.In Deut.28,he gives man a choice to take a curse or a blessing. THE CHOICE OF A CURSE INSTEAD OF A BLESSING IS NOT A PRE-PLAN OF GOD.


7.When you judge another believer instantly , you loose fellowship(Warren: 164)


The bible supports righteous judgments, for instance in John 7:24 , I Corinthians 2:15


8.“It’s not about you” (Warren: 17)

On page 63, he contradicts him self by writing:

You were planned for God’s pleasure. The moment you were born into the world God was there as an unseen witness, smiling at your birth. He wanted you alive, and your arrival gave him great pleasure. God did not need to create you, but he chose to create you for his own enjoyment. . . . Bringing enjoyment to God, living for his pleasure, is the first purpose of your life. When you fully understand this truth, you will never again have a problem with feeling insignificant. It proves your worth. If you are that important to God, and he considers you valuable enough to keep with him for eternity, what greater significance could you have? (Warren: 63). (Italics in original; bold emphasis mine)
See, http://cicministry.org/commentary/issue80.htm



9.“God won’t ask about your religious background or doctrinal views. The only thing that will matter is, did you accept what Jesus did for you and did you learn to love and trust him?” (Warren: 34)



Doctrine is emphasized in the Bible, see, I Timothy 1:3, 2 John v 9-11


10.The last thing many believers need today is to go back to another bible study. They already know far more than they are putting into practice. (Warren: 231)


We need to study the word of God in the bible? God told Joshua that the book of the law should never depart from hiS MOUTH(Joshua 1:8). It is written that God has MAGNIFIED his word even above his name( Psalms 138:2). Remember God’s word is sweeter than honey(Psalms 119:103).RICK WARREN SAYS, GOD'S WORD(HONEY) IS BORING.WELL,I DONT FIND IT BORING.THEREFORE WARREN IS GUILTY OF COMMITING THE FALLACY OF HOMOGENISATION.

The mistakes in warren’s book show that he does not know so much. See, http://crossroad.to/articles2/2003/1-purpose.htm


11."Worship has nothing to do with the style or volume or speed of a song. God loves all kinds of music because he invented it all -- fast and slow, loud and soft, old and new. You probably don't like it all, but God does!"


HOW ABOUT MUSIC WITH SATANIC ROOTS, LIKE ROCK MUSIC. DOES WARREN KNOW THAT THE DEVIL HAS HIS MUSIC TOO.

THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE USES GLOBALIST LANGUAGE

http://www.lorendavis.com/news_articles_pdl.html


Globalism is the uniting of nations economically, culturally, ideologically, ecologically, politically and militarily which would ultimately be managed under a one world government. Under Globalism, nations will lose their sovereignty, and individuals their freedom. Remember, Marxist Communism’s goal has always been to conquer and rule the whole world. Despite what we have been told that Communism is dead, that communistic dream is still very much alive. They are just using different tactics and disguises now.

Oct. 27, 2003 Rick Warren’s e-mail entitled GOD’S DREAM FOR YOU—AND THE WORLD.
*He is misusing Christ’s Great Commission of Mark 16:15 to promote the globalists political agenda which is against Christ and the Bible. His idea of the Great Commission has nothing to do with Christ’s recorded in Mark 16:15.


PDL, p. 298, 300 “THINK GLOBALLY”.
REPROGRAMMING, SUBLIMINAL BRAIN WASHING
Rick Warren “by a COMPLETE CHANGE OF MIND” RW p. 43.



Why do we need a complete change of mind? That translates that we are to give up everything we have believed and held dear in the past. That would mean that we would no longer believe in individualism; capitalism; or freedom. To completely change our mind would mean that now we become socialists; don’t believe the Bible; don’t believe that Jesus is the only way to heaven; and ultimately, become atheists.

PDL, p. 286 “To fulfill your mission will require that YOU ABANDON YOUR AGENDA”

*This is not in the scriptures. *It’s one thing to surrender to God’s will in your life, but it’s a whole new ball game to give control of your life to another man or institution. It is a Marxist mentality which says we should give up our agenda for the state’s or church’s agenda. His philosophy is that our purpose for living is to serve the church or state, not the state or church’s purpose is to serve the people. In the U.S. Constitution is says, “The government is FOR THE PEOPLE, by the people”. The people were never to exist FOR THE PURPOSES OF THE GOVERNMENT. America was founded by people who were fleeing the tyranny of the church and state and wanting to live free.

PDL, p. 83 “GIVE UP YOUR WILL”

What an incredible statement. This is exactly what is espoused by the Communist Manifesto. We are to seek the will of God, but nothing in the Bible infers that we are to ‘give up our will’. God Himself gives us a choice. To tell people to give up their will means you want to control their lives and manipulate them. That is how a child is treated. It is evil and deadly for the state, a pastor or a church to demand people to ‘give up their wills’. Then people would be nothing but zombies whose purpose is just to facilitate the will of those in power. It appears one of his objectives is to bring the protestants under a central control just like the Roman Catholic Church, where the church dominates the lives of its parishioners. This would make him the protestant pope, defining the faith and enforcing the church’s will, as he defines it.

PDL, p. 83 “TAKE YOUR HANDS OFF THE STEERING WHEEL”

This statement has far reaching implications. It translates that you should let someone else take control of your life. YOU ALONE SHOULD BE THE DECISION MAKER OF YOUR LIFE. It’s bad enough to make your own mistakes, let alone allowing someone else make mistakes on your behalf or USE YOU.
Joshua 24:15 “Choose this day whom you will serve”. This shows God honors our will.

Communist societies are dictatorial. In China, families are only allowed to have one child. Any more pregnancies must be aborted by law; the Bible is outlawed; there is no freedom of worship; freedom of speech; or freedom of the press. The state is in total control of what is done and said publicly. Rick Warren is advocating that the pastors be given absolute authority over their congregations. This explains why pastors have flocked to his program. This is just a conditioning interim step towards absolute state control over the masses, micro-managing our lives.

Bishop Orombi Endorses Purpose Driven Life


http://www.ucu.ac.ug/thestandard/downloads/vol-2/ucu_standardv2-07.pdf


Living with purpose is getting within the reach of more Ugandans. Rick Warren, world-renowned for his multi-million seller The Purpose Driven Life, was in Uganda - and at
UCU - recently to help the process along. "Jesus did five things that if we follow today, will be the antidote for our problems," said Warren, during a high-profile gathering on March28. "He promoted reconciliation, equipped servant leaders, assisted the poor, cared for the sick, and educated the next generation." Noting these as the solutions to the 'global goliaths' of spiritual emptiness, corruption, poverty, disease, and illiteracy, Warren addressed a crowd of highranking Ugandans from government, the clergy and business.


The national launch of Purpose Driven Living was held at the Imperial Royale Hotel, hosted by the Most Rev. Henry Luke Orombi, the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, and included several representatives from UCU. Warren had visited the university earlier that same day and spoken to a student and staff gathering at Nkoyoyo Hall. Orombi, who is also UCU's Chancellor, had invited The Purpose Driven Life author, Rick Warren, as guest speaker at the evening event.


President Yoweri Museveni was represented by Hon. Dr. Ezra Suruma, the Minister of Finance. "President Paul Kagame invited Rick [Warren] to make Rwanda purpose driven," explained Orombi, before stating that Ugandans, too, should live with a purpose. This was Warren's fourth visit to Uganda in three years. He left for Rwanda the next day for the start of teaching of the40-day Purpose Driven Life programme there, at the25,000-seat Rwanda National Stadium.


Warren told his Ugandan audience that the three sectors (public, private and faith) need to join hands, as Uganda's problems are too big. "Do not ignore the church. It is the biggest and it is global. Nothing will last longer than the church," he said, noting that churches are everywhere. Warren advised government leaders to build their lives on purpose.


"Do not build your lives on pleasure, wealth, fame, power, prestige, politics and other such things," he said. Warren told of his own wealth and fame that came with writing an international bestseller. "I was invited to speak at functions all over the world. Kings, prime ministers, presidents, universities like Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard all asked me to speak," he said, warning that the spotlight is blinding, and not always good for character.



He also asked churches not to compete, but to cooperate, and challenged businessmen to use their resources as a blessing to other people and to the nation. "God will ask you two questions: What did you do with my son Jesus Christ? And what did you do with what you were given?" Warren said. He urged the government, church and businessmen to use what God has put in their hands. He advised from his experience how to effectively handle affluence and influence.


"My wife and I suddenly had a lot of money, but we did not change our lifestyle. We remained in the same house and stayed with the same car," he revealed. Warren added that he stopped taking a salary from the church he has led for 29 years, and instead repaid the salary given to him for most of that time. "We also set up a foundation for people living with HIV/ AIDS, and we give 90 per cent of our income back to the church," he added, amid applause from the guests.


Orombi thanked Warren for teaching about God's purpose, and described him as a special friend. "When I first arrived at his office, I thought I hadn't arrived. I was amazed by the simplicity of his chair and desk," he said. Finance minister Suruma said he was"deeply touched and appreciative of the words of encouragement" from Warren, adding he was given The Purpose Driven Life by his secretary, and it was a great blessing to him.



Allen Kagina, Commissioner General Uganda Revenue Authority, noted that God's purpose is not hidden or a mystery, but revealed, nor an event but a journey. "I believe my purpose is to collect enough revenue to fund the national budget, so that Uganda can
truly become independent," she stated, to the amusement of the guests.


Other guests included the Ethiopian Ambassador Terfa Mengesha. From UCU were VC Stephen Noll and his wife Peggy, DVCs John Senyonyi and wife Ruth, Alex Kagume and wife Allen, Chaplain Frederick Baalwa, Dean of School of Divinity and Theology Rev. Can. Alfred Olwa, and Rev. Daniel Button, Head of the Department of Foundation Studies and his deputy, Rev. Amos Turyahabwe.
