On Piper, Warren and the SBC

I read an article regarding John Piper over at the Crosstalk blog today that brought about profound sadness.  I don’t think I can add much to the article, so I will simply provide a link to it (see below) and let you read it for yourself. 

The one thing I will add is to pose this question:  Is the SBC (Southern Baptist Convention) going apostate?  Rick Warren is presenting Islamic and Hindu teachers on his platform who encourage tantric sex practices and spiritual channeling (witchcraft) and the SBC embraces him rather than dissociating from him.  Then the SBC asks him to speak at their pastor’s conference along with some other highly questionable and even Emergent Church speakers (see link below).  Anyone who is blindly loyal to the SBC is headed for spiritual ruin, for it seems as though that is where the convention is determined to go. 

I have seen SBC speakers preach about the Gospel rather than actually preaching the Gospel for years (I got to experience it again just recently) and the fruits of their dereliction of duty are showing.  A group of soundly-saved Christ-embracing folk who know the Gospel inside and out would never fall for the false teachings of Warren, Emergents and others.  Please…all of you who come by this article…Please start preaching the actual Gospel (repentance and the forgiveness of sins in Jesus name) that leads to salvation.  Perhaps our Lord will have mercy and bring salvation to the many “religious but lost” in the SBC.

    It seems the tares and the wheat are almost fully grown huh? At one time, these “ministries” would have blended in quite nicely and no one would have said hardly a titch over their teachings, but something has changed, hasn’t it? There seems to be a line being drawn and the blurring is becoming less and less as the months and years pass by. This is good and reassuring to us, because it lets us know that Christ is coming soon.

    Thanks for sharing…I’m not sure however if I understand what you mean? Is he promoting this or is this stating that he is still affiliating with a group that is promoting this?

      Hi Lynne,
      Piper is holding his annual “Desiring God” conference at Rick Warren’s Saddleback church, and is sharing a platform with Warren again at the SBC pastor’s conference.
      As far as the SBC goes, they not only allow Warren to be a member of the convention, but even highlight him and invite him to be the keynote pseaker at many conventions, conferences and events.
      The apostate and unbiblical nature of Warren’s teachings have received much coverage (see Crosstalk or Fighting for the Faith websites) so I didn’t expound here. The real tragedy is Piper and the SBC abandoning the Biblical Gospel so as to embrace a popular heretic.
      Thanks for stopping by!
