Rick Warren's Global Peace Plan vs. Scripture
from James Sundquist
February 13, 2007
Glad to see that you are continuing to expose Rick Warren! POLICE REMOVE PURPOSE-DRIVEN CHRISTIAN PROTESTER FROM PUBLIC PROPERTY WHO WAS PICKETING LEE MCFARLAND'S ASSEMBLY OF GOD CHURCH
So I thought you should also beware of Rick Warren, as there are several things you should know [and may already] that I have discovered in testimony after testimony, as Dr. Hutchings has also discovered, and that is that with rare exception, those churches who run Warren's programs and/or conduct classes using Purpose Driven Life, are not allowed to bring in any book with an opposing view. This is also the case with major Christian publishers and distributors, including Harvest House (Eugene), Lifeway Books, Zondervan, InterVarsity Press, Thomas Nelson, Baptist Press, Assembly of God publications, and Agape Press. Same applies to a host of Christian radio shows. In fact, Noah was told that if he said anything against Rick Warren on Crawford Broadcasting's Los Angeles radio station, his Watchman on the Wall program would be removed. I have never seen such censorship in the Body of Christ in my 50+ years of being a Christian. I further invite Christian journals and members of churches conducting his programs, why Rick Warren and his colleague Dan Southerland of Church Transitions calls Christian resisters "Sanballats" because Sanballat was a pagan not a believer as these members are! Besides what the Wall Street Journal reported, here are some case studies so you will have proof.
You should also be apprised of the following recent development:
A Christian advocate and opponent, opposing Rick Warren's Purpose-Driven teachings, was forced by the Surprise, Arizona Police to evacuate the PUBLIC PROPERTY in front of Pastor Lee McFarland's, Radiant Church Assembly of God church in Surprise, Arizona. Lee McFarland is a top lieutenant in Rick Warren's Global Peace Plan who just returned from the Far East on an extensive tour with him. Radiant Church called the police on Bear Frankson who was preaching against Purpose-Driven teachings on public property, exercising his U.S. Constitutional right of FREE SPEECH. The police arrived and Mr. Bear had done his homework. He had gone to the city and obtained the plot map of Surprise, Arizona property boundaries of private vs. public property and even measured the distance the law allowed him to speak. Mr. Bear provided evidence to the police who subsequently told him he was not in any violation of the law and was not trespassing private property. However, on the evening of October 7, Mr. Bear showed up again on public property in front of Radiant Church which is Purpose-Driven waving the billboard poster placard which read:
Who's Driving the Purpose Driven Church? That They Would Choose To Be
Deceived on Purpose Which Results In A Time of Departing
Pastor Lee McFarland's church called the police again. This time three police cruisers and one police van showed up. Mr. Bear was not in any violation of the law again. But this time the police told him if he did not leave the PUBLIC PROPERTY he would be arrested. The excuse that the sergeant gave Mr. Bear was that the traffic cop from El Mirage Police Department could not do his job because two rubber-neckers were looking at Mr. Bear and were distracted. So Mr. Bear left, but has indicated that he shall return!

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 came after a lady who was an elder lady in the faith who had been with the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas since 1956 by shouting her down with spiritual euthanasia and aggressive mean-spirited behavior, and the intimidation of seven attorneys, because she opposed them turning their landmark Criswell Center into a Purpose Driven entertainment center. But I did not speak up because I was not a widow.
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 brother did finally speak up and tried to warn Eugene Christian Fellowship because they had gone Purpose Driven, but they threatened legal action and told him to stop spamming them. But I did not speak up for fear of being accused of spamming or being sued by a church.
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 still another brother on another Christian radio ministry broadcast testimonies of Christians thrown out of their churches across the country, but the network threatened to remove his show from the air, if another broadcast was ever made that said anything bad about Rick Warren. But I did not speak up because I had friends and family who were either employed by an organization that promoted Purpose Driven Church, or were in Purpose Driven Church, and I did not want to lose those relationships.
Then they came after a large group of members at New Hope Church in Bend, Oregon. But I didn't speak up because I wasn't a member of The Evangelical Church denomination or the National Association of Evangelicals.
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."

"In Germany, the Nazis first came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, but I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics, but I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak for me."

WARRENGATE SCANDAL: COMMENTARY ON WALL STREET JOURNAL & BAPTIST PRESS ARTICLE ON RICK WARREN
by James Sundquist
Without directly accusing Rick Warren of lying, Suzanne Sataline, author of the September 5, 2006 Wall Street Journal article: A Popular Strategy For Church Growth Splits Congregants, astutely revealed him to be one when Warren says he opposes any efforts to expel members from churches who won't comply with his programs, then she describes Dan Southerland's Church Transitions organization, one of Rick Warren major global partners and quotes by their spokespersons Roddy Clyde and Glen Sartain prove that Rick Warren does promote those very efforts to expel members from churches. The WSJ article even backed it up by documenting that Church Transitions conducted their program right at Warren's Saddleback Church, making it impossible for him to squirm out of it or say that it happened at another church...so therefore not his fault. And I can back it up too because I have tapes of Warren's PDC Conference leaders in Nairobi Kenya, confirming their alliance with Church Transitions in Warren's Global Peace Plan. I can't even believe he would make such an audacious statement that can be so easily refuted when he trains 400,000 pastors all over the world how to do precisely just that when dealing with his "resisters" and those who "must die". Suzanne Sataline caught Rick Warren red-handed! Good job! A further note in the Baptist Press article that there was not an ounce of compassion for any of the victims of Rick Warren's programs as though they had no biblical grounds for their opposition. Also note that they tried to contact Warren and the Wall Street Journal, but no record of contacting any of the victims to verify their story. This is the same stunt that Baptist Press pulled when covering the story on 165 members being ousted from Gardendale Baptist Church in Corpus Christi, Texas, as though they deserved it. When the reality is that BP did not even mention the real reason, and that was they opposed their church being hijacked by Rick Warren's Purpose Driven programs and teachings.
