Rick Warren – Shepherd or Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing?

Burning Fire Shut Up In My Bones

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

~ Matthew 7:15-20 — NKJV ~

I received a message from a brother in the Lord, whose opinion I respect very much, and he had some questions about my latest post, in which I called Rick Warren a false teacher.

    Isn’t 50 million, 4-8 hundred million, and a billion, more than 32 million?

    I have requested specific proof of page number, date, year of publication in Publishers Week for verification from Zondervan and Harper/Collins of the statement on Rick Warren’s site that Purpose Driven Life is the “Best Selling Non-Fiction Hardback Book in History”. NONE was provided.

    George W. Slowik, President of Publishers Weekly:

    “I’ve checked our site which includes all of our content from about 1995.
    Also touched base with our religion editors and there is no finding of a
    quote like that…We don’t generally use the term hardback.” September 30, 2013 11:33:08 PM EDT

    WARNINGS FROM SCRIPTURE:

    “But God forbid that I should glory , save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.” Galatians 6:14

    “I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Jesus Christ, John 14:6

    “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:…A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” Proverbs 6:16,18

    “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” Revelation 21:8
    ****
    AND HERE IS ANOTHER VERIFIABLY FALSE PUBLISHED STATEMENT BY RICK WARREN THAT HIS BOOK IS THE MOST TRANSLATED BOOK IN HISTORY.

    re Rick Warren at World Economic Forum…I just revisited the videtape of that conference…

    “My Islamic brother from Italy”…”It became the best-selling book…in English in a world history..it’s, next the Bible, the best selling book. And It’s the most translated book next to the Bible in over a hundred languages.”
    Rick Warren, at World Economic Forum, “Faith and Modernization” Panel, January 28, 2008, Davos, Switzerland: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGytW4yh0C8 at 1hour 9 minutes in to 1 hour 11 minutes.
    &
    1:53-2:05 minute mark
    Church of Tares – Purpose Driven Life, Seeker Sensitive

    Purpose Driven Life book is not even listed on the list of the most translated books in English (language origin) on Wikipedia:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_literary_works_by_number_of_translations (sort by language)

    Warren made this claim in 2008. In 2013 he posts that his PDL Book is translated in 85 languages:
    http://www.saddlebackresources.com/new-purpose-driven-life-book

    Note that there are 7 books listed which are translated from English with number of translations greater than 85 that Warren boasted in 2008.
