Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in Southern California (
The Purpose Driven Church) was a featured speaker at the annual meeting of the liberal Baptist World Alliance in Birmingham, England, in late July. In this venture Warren joined hands with Jimmy Carter, who has stated that Mormons are Christians and should not be targeted for evangelism, and Tony Campolo, who says that homosexuality is an inborn trait and who refers to “evangelical homosexuals” (Christian News, March 4, 1991). Rick Warren is leading multitudes of churches into an unscriptural “rock & roll Christianity,” but he is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention and the “conservatives” in the Convention do not expose his error. He is also influencing many independent Baptists who are trading the whole counsel of God for a shallow, manmade synopsis.
