Apprising Ministries is run by an SBC Pastor name Ken Silva, pastor of the Connecticut River Baptist Church and serves to answer false teaching and cults. While I do not know much about Apprising Ministries, I have greatly benefited from these articles. The Rick Warren Archive at Apprising Ministries is chock-full of critical pieces done by Apprising Ministries and links to pieces done by others. They are not hateful but they are direct (blunt, even) and do not pull any punches.
I don’t want to sound like I’m against everything (like some guys I know), because I assure you I’m not, but I am more and more disturbed by Rick Warren all the time. I used to think that Rick Warren and his ilk were innocuous, not my cup of tea, for sure, but relatively harmless. My view is shifting of late and while I admit one will not find a whole lot in The Purpose-Driven Life with which to quibble on the surface (which makes it even more dangerous), I am beginning to think more and more that his whole Saddleback, Purpose-Driven, seeker-sensitive kingdom is harming rather than helping biblical Christianity.
Let me know what you think.
Maybe later I’ll add a few links to some articles that I think provide biblical alternatives to the whole PDL phenomenon.
