Rick Warren Sells Out

By Ray Gano

Mat 7:15 – 18 (KJV) Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

"California mega-church pastor and author of The Purpose Driven Life Rick Warren says he apologized to his homosexual friends for making comments in support of California's Proposition 8, and now claims he 'never once even gave an endorsement' of the marriage amendment."

Isa 8:20 (KJV) To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Rick Warren and the mockery he is making of our Lord, His Word and of Christianity makes me upset, I mean really upset. He has sold his soul to sodomy and the sodomites who live the filthy lifestyle; and yet everyone in Christendom thinks he is the next best thing to sliced bread.

But what I am upset about is all these ignorant people who insist on calling him a Christian.

Folks, he is selling people down the broad way to Hell and Satan is laughing at every step he takes and the sodomites are right there laughing too.

Let me make this clear, these radical sodomites who Rick Warren is kissing up to, don’t care that they are sinners in need of a Saviour. In fact, I give you odds that many of them know and have heard the gospel. All they care about is the sin and filthy lifestyle they live in and how we must “accept” their debauchery.

Accepting sodomites is more important to Rick Warren than heeding God’s Word…

Gay advocacy group thankful for Saddleback Church meeting

Representatives of the gay community today shared their "coming out" stories and discussed religious attitudes toward homosexuality with Saddleback Church staff.

"I feel the foundation is being built for other dialogue between Saddleback and the gay community," said Richard Finch, a Lake Forest resident who participated in the session.

"The Saddleback staff was very friendly, welcoming and very attentive to letting each person share their story of coming out and reconciling their faiths," said Finch, who grew up with the Pentecostal church. "Even though we have our theological differences, I appreciate them being open to discourse."

Folks what these sodomites are seeking is a “wink and a nod.” They expect their abominable sin to be “welcomed” into the church all under the guise of tolerance and love.

Again I say, these people did not care about, nor wish to hear the gospel, they had a single agenda. That agenda is one thing, to change the minds of Christians to accept their sinful way of life.

They are achieving their goals with the help of Rick Warren.

These sodomites are living a reprobate life. There is no way they can return to God on their own, God has given them over to their sin and it is only God who can help them return to Him.

Rick Warren and the sodomites are in love with their sinful lifestyle. Neither of them support or love God. In fact, Rick Warren and these sodomites that he supports are in complete rebellion against God’s Word and that is a fact.

Do you realize that the act of me writing this makes me out to be a religious bigot and even an extremist in the eyes of the world! I am most definitely in the eyes of Rick Warren and his sodomite support faction.

Folks, I am a person who believes and stands upon what God says and I submit my life to Him and His Word. It is God’s Word that I preach.

Here is what God’s word says…

Lev 18:22 (KJV) Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Lev 20:13 (KJV) If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

This is pretty cut and dry, and I have to ask has Rick Warren spent any time in God’s Word really? Does he have any comprehension of what those verses say?

I mean these verses are pretty clear and in fact there are more verses in God’s Word speaking against sodomite behavior, these are not the only ones.

“Well Ray, those are old testament scriptures and laws. We are new creations, so we are not under the law. Grace has set us free to be all things to all men.”

I get this a lot and it is the most ignorant statement I have ever heard.

People who make these sorts of statements have one foot in the world and one foot in the so called church. I call it a “so called church” because if they are attending a church, the church is probably a Rick Warren Purpose Driven Life church which means that they don’t pick up a bible in the first place.

Here is what God’s Word says…

Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

Here is how Websters 1828 dictionary defines the word recompense.


1. To compensate; to make return of an equivalent for any thing given, done or suffered; as, to recompense a person for services, for fidelity or for sacrifices of time, for loss or damages.

2. To require; to repay; to return an equivalent; in a bad sense.

Listen, here are some facts about this wonderful life style that Rick Warren so willingly loves to defend.

28 percent of homosexual males had sexual encounters with 1,000 or more males.
79 percent said more than half of their sex partners were strangers.
Half of the white homosexuals said that they had at least 500 different sex partners.
Some reported as many as 20,000 different partners.
Average age of death from AIDS ..... 35.7 years.
Expected average life span (of the homosexual community) 45 years.
Did you get the last two statistics?

Average age of a sodomite with AIDS 37.5 and an average sodomite lucky enough to not contract AIDS is 45.

I was on the phone a few days ago with a high school friend who I have not talked to in a while. While on the phone I found out that a fellow student who entered the “lifestyle” committed suicide after he got “married” and his “spouse” walked out on him for another man.

“…receiving in themselves that recompense of their error”

When you sin, there are always consequences, but the ultimate consequence that sin leads to is death. When you sin, you receive the recompense – the pay back for your sin.

Sin always kills and that is a fact.

This is the lonely sick perverted lifestyle Rick Warren is defending.

According to God’s Word, Rick Warren is not a Christian.

Rick Warren does not love God and is in fact making a mockery of all things holy unto God.

Over and over again, Christ told us to “Be Not Deceived.” Beware of false prophets and teachers. This is a reoccurring message that is spoken of in almost every book of the New Testament.

Read Matthew 7:15 – 18 again…

Mat 7:15 – 18 (KJV) Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Can I judge Rick Warren’s heart?

No, I can not, but I can judge his fruit, and in fact Christ TOLD us to judge by their fruit.

Rick Warren is corrupt, he welcomes in the sodomite lifestyle and shuns fundamental bible believing Christians.

In fact, what does Rick Warren define Christian Fundamentalism to be?

In a May 2005 interview between Rick Warren and the Pew Forum on Religion, Warren stated:

"Today there really aren't that many Fundamentalists left; I don't know if you know that or not, but they are such a minority; there aren't that many Fundamentalists left in America ... Now the word 'fundamentalist' actually comes from a document in the 1920s called the Five Fundamentals of the Faith. And it is a very legalistic, narrow view of Christianity."

January 10, 2006: According to a news story in the January 8th edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Rick Warren says Christian fundamentalism will be an enemy of the 21st century.

"Warren predicts that fundamentalism, of all varieties, will be 'one of the big enemies of the 21st century.' 'Muslim fundamentalism, Christian fundamentalism, Jewish fundamentalism, secular fundamentalism - they're all motivated by fear. Fear of each other.'

Rick Warren is a corrupt wolf and he does not produce good fruit, it is impossible for him to do so, God’s Word states this…

Mat 7:18 (KJV) A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Rick Warren has poisoned the body of Christ; it is not the bible he teaches from, but his own vain philosophy. Why do so many Rick Warren - PDL churches have 40 days of purpose and 40 days of service? Folks; Rick Warren quotes more from his own book “The Purpose Driven Life” more than he does God’s Word.

Here is what God’s Word says…

Colossians 2:8 (KJV) Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

We are not to have fellowship with the likes of Rick Warren who love the world more than they love God and his Word.

In closing I leave you with God’s Word…

Psalm 119:128 (KJV) "therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and i hate every false way."

2Cor 6:14 (KJV) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

Eph 5:11 (KJV) And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

2 Thessalonians 3:6 (KJV) “now we command you, brethren, in the name of our lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us."

2 Timothy 3:5 (KJV) “having a form of Godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

2 John 10-11 (KJV) “if there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: for he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds."

1 John 2:15-17 (KJV) “love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."
