Having seen multiple church celebrities be exposed as frauds and weenies over the past few years, this raises an eyebrow.
This type of grandstanding is never good.
“I have done more for the kingdom than Christ himself!”
It reminds me a bit of what Joseph Smith once said:
I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him, but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet.
I mean, YEESH.
Rick is treading dangerously close to those waters.
In recent years, he’s done the Big Eva shuffle of apologizing to the LGBT cult in order to stay relevant. He’s held racially segregated church services. He’s said churches weren’t being persecuted by Covid lockdowns, even as domestic abuse, addiction, depression, and suicide rocketed across the world and church leaders were being hauled off to jail for the crime of meeting face-to-face.
And last week, he strutted up to the stage at the Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting and declared how he alone has done more for Christendom than anyone probably ever.
[Rick Warren] was standing and praying like this about himself: ‘God, I thank you that I’m not like other people—greedy, unrighteous, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of everything I get.’
There are a ton of Christian ministries out there that boast about their numbers.
And you know what? Their seed has been scattered a mile wide with roots an inch deep. All it takes to rip out those roots and destroy the whole crop is the slight wind of a politician who says you might get the sniffles or use the correct pronouns and many of those supposed “pastors” fell away.
It turns out that you aren’t really fulfilling the Great Commission if you “travel over land and sea” to make people “twice as much a child of hell.”
I’ll leave you with some good thoughts on how evangelical leaders like Warren have simply become Christianesque mouthpieces for the woke intelligentsia.
