Rick Warren, Interfaith Activist: Purpose Driven Islam

Well, what else can be said about this?
Rick Warren to speak at Muslim Public Affairs Council
I fear that the title of the article “Rick Warren, Interfaith Activist” is pretty close to reality. Certainly the author doesn’t confuse Warren’s faith with Orthodox Christianity.
It’s a good sign that God’s judgment is near when leading pastors consider “interfaith” activism to be more important than Christ.
Update: Warren seems to have missed the December 2, 2007 Conference entitled “A Purpose Driven Muslim Life”. It’s good to know that he’ll make this year’s conference.
“Following the noted work of Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life, from an Islamic perspective, this examination will endeavor to introduce practival steps to help discover and manifest purpose in our lives.”
For those who think I’m being nitpicky about Warren’s seeker-sensitive theology, what does it tell you when Muslims study the book for a perspective? Can you imagine Muslims doing a study on John Owen’s “The Mortification of Sin”?
Wait until Muslim children get ahold of VeggieTales.
Interfaith Diaologue is a waste of time, unless Mr. Warren tells these individuals to repent of their Sin and believe on Christ. Islam has nothing to do with the true God or His Son, it is an abberation. They deny the Deity of Christ and the Deny the Sonship of Christ, therefore they are anti-Christ. Muslim, if you are reading my words, please consider Jesus and repent of your sin and believe in Him for your eternal security with God in Heaven.
