So let’s see what Rick
Warren has to tell us
about the importance of
Doctrine…..
does it really matter?
Rick Warren:
“God won’t ask about your
religious background or
doctrinal views.”
PDL Page 34
LET'S SEE WHAT THE APOSTLE
PAUL THOUGHT ABOUT
DOCTRINE:
Doctrine doesn’t matter? So why
did the apostle Paul spend so
much time and effort warning us
about doctrines of demons? Why
bother to even warn the Galatians
who had been bewitched?
More of what Paul thought about
doctrinal views:
“All scripture is given by inspiration
of God, and is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness.”
—2 Timothy 3:16
“For the time will come when they will
not endure sound doctrine; but after
their own lusts shall they heap to
themselves teachers,
having itching ears.”
—2 Timothy 4:3
“Holding fast the faithful word as he
hath been taught, that he may be able
by sound doctrine both to exhort and
to convince the gainsayers.”
—Titus 1:9
WHAT THE APOSTLE JOHN
THOUGHT OF DOCTRINAL
VIEWS:
“If there come any unto you,
and bring not this doctrine,
receive him not
into your house,
neither bid him God speed.”
—2 John 1:10
WHAT JESUS THOUGHT
OF DOCTRINAL VIEWS:
And God won’t ask about doctrinal views?
Well, Jesus Christ (who is God) also did not
agree with Rick Warren regarding the
importance of doctrine, as we read His words
directly to the church in Pergamum in the
Book of Revelation:
“But I have a few things against thee,
because thou hast there them that hold the
doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast
a stumblingblock before the children of
Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and
to commit fornication. So hast thou also
them that hold the doctrine of the
Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.” —
Revelation 2:14–15
Doctrinal views do matter!
Warren’s belittling the importance of
sound doctrine might explain why so
few in his congregation and those who
have become Rick Warren churches,
have opposed him.
What does Rick Warren
say about Prophecy?
Rick Warren:
“That is why Jesus talked more
about money than he did about
either heaven or hell.”
PDL page 267
Is that true? Of course it isn't!
The word “heaven” appears 144 times in the Gospels alone,
and this does not even include all of the references to
heaven in the Book of Revelation . . . remember it is Jesus
speaking in this book where it occurs fifty-six times. So
what about the occurrences of the word “hell” in the
Gospels alone? “Hell” appears fifteen times, plus four in
Revelation. But this is not the only term used for hell.
“Lake of fire” is also used, which occurs four times. “Outer
darkness” occurs four times. So let’s add the total number
of times Jesus refers to heaven and hell in the Gospels and
the Book of Revelation.
The total is: 223 where Jesus talks about heaven
and hell, compared to sixteen times he talks
about money.
So Rick Warren is wrong once again!
Rick Warren:
“When the disciples wanted to talk
about prophecy, Jesus quickly
switched the conversation to
evangelism. . . . If you want Jesus to
come back sooner,
focus on fulfilling your mission,
not figuring out prophecy.”
Purpose Driven Life, P. 285-286
Is that what Jesus said?
Of course not!
He spent the entire discourse on the
Road to Emmaus during the 40 days
after His Resurrection tell his disciples
how he was the fulfilment of prophecy!
The Entire Olivet Discourse
Jesus explains prophetic events
and why we should be warned
AHEAD OF TIME!!!!
See Matthew Chapter 24
Mark Chapter 21
and
Luke Chapter 16
So apparently Jesus thought it was
an important enough topic to tell
his disciples
And the beginning of Revelation,
Jesus promises a blessing to all
who read and heed the words of
this Prophecy. See Rev. 1:3
Or the Apostle Paul’s words to
Timothy:
“This charge I commit unto thee,
son Timothy, according to the
prophecies which went before on
thee, that thou by them mightest
war a good warfare.” I Timothy
1:18
And….
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of
God, and is profitable for doctrine, for
reproof, for correction, for instruction in
righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16.”
So isn’t prophecy part of all
Scripture?
YES!!!
In fact, it is a very large part of
Scripture and the crown Jewel of
Christianity and why we are
holding this conference
So Rick Warren is simply wrong for
suggesting that Christians who are simply
obeying Christ’s own words re prophecy
are distracted and not fit for the Kingdom!
Here is what Rick
Warren’s SHAPE
acronym stands for:
• Spiritual gifts—God-given abilities to do kingdom
work
• Heart—Areas of passion or burden in your life
• Abilities—Skills you have developed or acquired
• Personality—Your natural bent
• Experiences—Both good and bad
We are going to focus on
the “P” in SHAPE
In other words “Personality”
Which we will prove is rooted in
Both Psychiatrist and occultist Dr.
Carl Jung as well as in Paganism.
But is found NOWHERE in Scripture
“Your personality will affect
how and where you use your
spiritual gifts and abilities.”
Rick Warren, Pastors.com
There is not one single Scripture
to support this! But God does use
our character to determine how
we serve!
“When you minister in a manner
consistent with your personality
God gave you, you experience
fulfillment, satisfaction, and
fruitfulness.” Rick Warren
Pastors.com
WRONG! Fruitfulness is the fruit
of the Spirit, not our personality!
Rick Warren: “….two people may
have the same gift of evangelism,
but one is introverted and the
other is extroverted.”
“…there is not a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’
temperament. We need
opposites to balance the
church.” PDL pp. 245-246
So, did Rick Warren get these
terms and concepts from the
Bible?
Of course, he did not!
But I can tell you where he did get
them….
He got both the terms and the
personality theory concepts
behind them from Dr. Carl Jung
And Who is Dr. Carl Jung?
He was Psychiatrist and Disciple
of Atheist Sigmund Freud
And what did Dr. Carl Jung
think of Christianity?
Slowly I came to understand that this
communion had been a fatal
experience for me. It had proved hollow;
more than that, it had proved to be a total
loss. I knew that I would never again be
able to participate in this ceremony. "Why,
that is not religion at all," I thought. "It is
the absence of God; the church is a place
I should not go to. It is not life which is
there, but death."
C. G. Jung. Memories, Dreams, Reflections, ed. by
Aniela Jaffe, trans. by Richard and Clara Winston.
New York: Pantheon, 1963, p. 55.
And where did Carl Jung get
his Psychoanalysis ideas of
personality theory?
From a demonic spirit guide he
named Philemon, Paganism
the practice of Astrology,
Taoism
and a belief in Evolution
In other words...
Divination and Sorcery!!
And where did Warren’s
concept of balancing
personality opposites come
from?
Balancing or reconciling
opposites is another concept of
personality theory drawn directly
from Carl Jung’s invoking
Taoism’s yin and yang (female,
male). Jung’s terms for yin and
yang were “animus” and “anima,”
which Jung described as
“psychological bisexuality.”…
and that all human beings are
bisexual..
In fact, one of the reasons
Carl Jung rejected the Orthodox
Doctrine of Christ was
that it teaches Christ is ONLY
good and not balanced with evil!
“...that God is light, and in him is
no darkness at all.–1 John 1:5!”

PLUGGING IN MY PERSONALITY
Please remember to record your responses on your S.H.A.P.E. profile.
Instructions: Circle one or the other
“I tend to . . .”
or
Be Extroverted
Be Introverted
I prefer interacting with many people
I prefer interacting with only a few
and gain energy from being part of a
people and gain energy from quiet
variety of activities.
reflective time. I am a good listener.
Be Self-expressive
I am more open and verbal about
my thoughts and opinions. I enjoy
sharing these with other people.
or
Be Self-controlled
I tend to keep my thoughts and
opinions to myself.
Prefer Routine
I am more comfortable being
involved in activities where I clearly
know what is expected of me. I like
closure and completion before
starting something new.
or
Prefer Variety
I am more fulfilled by tasks that
change and maybe even have some
surprises. Finishing one task before
starting another is not crucial.
Be Cooperative
As I work with others, I easily see
their point of view. I like being part of
a team effort.
or
Be Competitive
I like a sense of challenge. It increases
my effort and helps me overcome the
obstacles.
Now it is clear there is no
Scriptural basis for these magic
arts
Let’s see if they even scientifically
hold up…
According to a study
by Dr. David J. Pittenger:
“Several studies have shown that when
retested, even after intervals as short
as five weeks, as many as 50 percent
will be classified into a different type.”
So Rick Warren is not only going
to practice these personality
theories derived from divination
and magic arts, he is
recommending in this book that
we practice them!
Even worse, he will require you to
participate in his magic arts in
order to become a member of his
church…because remember you
signed a pledge of unity…one
more thing prohibited by Christ
himself!
These oaths and required
encumbrances saddled upon
Christians would have been
burdens not even the Pharisees
could have dreamed!
In addition to the two chapters in
my book devoted to the Carl Jung
roots of Rick Warren’s SHAPE
Personality Profiling, I invite you
to read the article:
“Carl Jung, Neo-Gnosticism, and
the Myers-Briggs Temperament
Indicator (MBTI)” in Appendix C
of my book “Who’s Driving the
Purpose Driven Church?”
And…..our

in Appendix D
and for those who do oppose Rick
Warren’s Purpose Driven Life
teachings….what’s in store for
them?

So, where do we go from
here?
First, let me tell you where Rick
Warren is going from here:
Purpose Driven Community
Global P.E.A.C.E. Plan
(which he says is certain to
succeed!)
At Warren's 25th Anniversary at
stadium in Anaheim....he promotes his
Global Peace plan by
SINGING JIMMY HENDRIX'S
DRUG-INDUCED “PURPLE HAZE”
“Purple haze all in my brain
...
Don’t know if I’m comin’ up or down
Am I happy or in misery? ...
What ever it is, that girl put a spell on
me...
So far out my mind...
“Don’t know if it’s day or night
You got me blowin’, blowin’ my mind
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?
..........
You’re makin’ me blow my
mind...mama
Purple haze, n-no, nooo
Purple haze, no, it’s painful, baby”

Brother John is a Cisterian monk.
Here is the most glaring quote in it:
"Working toward this miraculous
transformation, re-birth, or inner alchemy is the
true purpose of life. This transformation is what
the West calls "conversion" and the East
"enlightenment," and is the fruit of our
commitment to the authentically purposeful life
that Father Christian described so well"

Rick Warren Teams Up With New-Age Guru Ken
Blanchard! (Source: LighthouseTrails.com)
Apr 19, 2005 While Rick Warren is gearing up to train
a billion people, unbeknownst to many he has also been
teamed up with New Age and contemplative promoter,
Ken Blanchard, for some time now. ...... He has hired
Ken Blanchard .... to come to Saddleback to help train
people how to be effective leaders." p. 193
In light of knowing who Ken Blanchard is, this is
shocking and devastating news for the church!
There is countless evidence to show that Blanchard sits on
the New Age/mystical/contemplative bandwagon.
Blanchard believes in the benefits and use of mantra
meditation, yoga and has no trouble borrowing from
Buddhism.
Here are just a few examples:
Wrote the foreword to Jim Ballard's Mind Like Water
Wrote the foreword to Franz Metcalf's What Would
Buddha Do At Work?
Is on the Front Cover of Corporate Mystic-(Listen)
Is on the Back Cover of Deepak Chopra's 7 Spiritual Laws
of Success
Jim Ballard, a staunch New Ager, and a colleague of The
Ken Blanchard Companies
Wrote the Foreword to Ellen Tadd's (clairvoyant) book,
Death and Letting Go.
RICK WARREN'S ANOTHER GOSPEL
IN LADIES HOME JOURNAL
1. Warren: “Accept yourself…God accepts us
unconditionally…”
Does God accept us without Christ? Does He accept us even
when we reject Him and/or willfully disobey His Word?
The truth is; Hell is never mentioned in the article; neither is sin,
repentance, redemption or the cross of Christ; only God’s
“unconditional acceptance” of everyone reading the Ladies
Home Journal, Christian or not.
2. Warren: “Love yourself”
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself…” – Matthew 16:24
3. Warren: “Be true to yourself…consider your heart –
what you love to do – as well as the strengths and
weaknesses of your personality…Don’t deny your
weaknesses…be content with them.”
vs. Scripture:
“The heart is wicked above all things, and desperately
wicked: who can know it?”– Jeremiah 17:9
4. Warren: “Forgive yourself…God doesn’t expect
perfection…”
“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is
in heaven is perfect.”– Matthew 5:48 ...."
Be ye holy," (1 Peter 1:16)
5. Warren: “Believe in yourself…The truth is
God has created you with talents, abilities,
personality and background in a combination
that is uniquely you.”
vs. Scripture:
The Lord has NEVER ONCE instructed us to
“believe in ourselves!” This is the world’s
religion – the heart of humanism and “the pride
of life” that the Bible repeatedly warns us
against!
“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our
righteousnesses are as filthy rags and we all do fade as
a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us
away.”– Isaiah 64:6
“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that
trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose
heart departeth from the LORD.”– Jeremiah 17:5
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will
come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his
cross, and follow me. ”– Matthew 16:24
SPIRITUAL EUTHANASIA
A PARABLE OF THE PURPOSE DRIVEN
CHURCH
PURPOSE DRIVEN CHRISTIANITY
....A WAY THAT SEEMS RIGHT UNTO
MAN, OR WHO'S END IS DESTRUCTION?
"First they came for “resisters” and “pillars” of
Brunswick Reformed Church, Brunswick, Ohio
because they opposed Purpose Driven Life and
Church, but I didn't speak up because I was not
a member of Reformed Church of American
(RCA) denomination.
Then they held a trial for two families at Valley Baptist
Church in Lakeland, Minnesota, but I didn't speak up
because I was not a member of the General Baptist
Convention.
Then they came after 165 members of
Gardendale Baptist Church, Corpus Christi,
Texas and ran them out of the church, but I
didn't speak up because I wasn't a Southern
Baptist
Then a news reporter for a large Christian radio
network sounded the alarm on His Holy Hill of this
clear and present danger. They ran the story, but
received more gnashing of teeth from callers then they
had ever had, so they censored this story from their
Agape Press print media news service.
Then they came after a carpenter and his wife at
Calvary Community Church in Phoenix, Arizona with
the police and a sheriff and escorted him out of the
church and off of the grounds for trying to expose the
deeds of darkness and the teachings of Rick Warren,
telling him that if he returned, he would be
arrested. But I didn't speak up because I wasn't a
member of the Calvary Chapel denomination
Then they came for me, and by
that time there was no one left to
speak up for me, because every
church in the nation had become
Purpose Driven and part of his
Global PEACE Plan."
