Megachurch Pastor Rick Warren Addresses U.S. Muslims

From Fox News:

The gist:
Evangelical megachurch pastor Rick Warren says America’s largest Islamic organization showed courage when it invited him to speak at its annual convention.

[…]

He says the two largest faiths on the planet — Muslims and Christians — must work together to combat stereotypes, promote peace and freedom and solve global problems.

Warren’s willingness to show support for U.S. Muslims is a huge gain for the community, which has endured intense scrutiny since 9/11.
Take whatever comment you think I’m going to make and insert it here. I’m tired of saying it. I will leve you with this quote from John Piper:

Practical help for unbelievers without a LONGING and INTENT that it lead to relief from everlasting suffering is not love.

  1. Elizabeth B. says:

    Because as everyone knows, Muslims are all about promoting global peace, especially with the infidels–I mean, Christians. At some point, being "willing to show support" or being "tolerant" of something becomes just another way of condoning it, thus your appropriate quote at the end.

  2. A YEAR AGO, A MISSION CONFERENCE WHERE PIPER WAS SPEAKING CALLED ITSELF, "THE PURPOSE DRIVEN DEATH." PIPER LOVED IT; I LOVE IT.I'M GOING TO EMAIL YOU AN ARTICLE (IF I CAN STILL FIND IT) THAT WARREN WROTE FOR "THE LADIES HOME JOURNAL." I WROTE THE EDITORS REGARDING IT, BUT NEVER GOT A RESPONSE (TRUTHFULLY, I DIDN'T EXPECT ONE.
