Wasn't there a follow-up to the 40 days of purpose? Something like 40 days of "community" purpose?

This stuff makes me sick to my stomach. Mainly because as I look deeper, I see the lies, but I fear that those who I love who know about PDL will just think I'm crazy...

... they just follow after him. Sad.

My friend said she watched Billy Graham last night on our nbc affilliate. They offered a book by Rick Warren for free in which she called and ordered. I'm wondering, which is the best article you've read that I can read and maybe pass onto her clarifying Rick Warren's motive? Thanks!

The Purpose Driven Muslim

Postby ChristineMarie on Sun Aug 03, 2008 11:51 am

Class Description:

This class will examine the purpose of Life from an Islamic perspective and then endeavor to show how it is imperative that a Muslim live his or her life in pursuit of that purpose.

To accomplish these twin objectives we will examine aspects of Qur’an and its commentary; Hadith or prophetic tradition and its explanation; prophetic biography and its implications; along with contemporary insights into the human condition.

We will emphasize how important certain theological themes an concepts that oftentimes are neglected by Muslims contemporarily but are critically important in defining how we should be leading our every-day lives. Examples would include redemption, justice, fairness, magnanimity, divine grace, divine retribution, thankfulness, human kindness, and human decency.

We will also examine the consequences of an aimless life with special emphasis on the impact of such an approach to life on the contemporary Muslim world.

This examination will be follow, to a certain extent, the noted work of Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life, from an Islamic perspective. That being the case, we will endeavor to introduce practical steps that will help in discovering and manifesting purpose in our lives into each lesson.

Rick Warren is an admitted member of the Rockefeller C.F.R. I am not surprised that Billy Graham stears people towards him. Billy is also a member of club elite and really believes in Christ Conscientious as well. There is a video on Youtube where Billy and Robert Schuller talk about Gods WIDER grace. Billy was the one who got Schuller into ministry. I went to Crystal Cathedral last week to see for myself if there were any indicaters of Manonic involvement. This is what I found. 1. Many graven images ofJesus. the sculptor was Dallas Anderson. The way he signed his initials was paculiar. A with the D turned skyword overlapping the top part of the A. Resulting in the pyamid and "eye of horus". 2. I went and checked out the abolosque next to the main church building and what did I find in the "prayer room" at the base of the phalic symbal? I found a 3D hologram type sculptor with a jesus inside. I was spinning slowly around on top of stand. A jesus was inside looking up with a hand going up toward the sky and his hand is coming out of the sculptor. It's a perfect rendition of the christ inside of you trying to come out. The kicker is that the room is surrounded by 33 marble pillars. 3. I go the the welcome center and up on the 2nd floor big pictures spotlighting different happenings over the years. The first one is a picture of him preaching on a platform in what was a drive in movie theater. He is on this platform and all off this cars are parked around him with the window speakers on their windows listening to his sermon. Here's the kicker....behind him is the Cross inside of a pyramid. This thing was like 20' tall. Picture a 20' pyramid with the tip of the cross at the tip of the pyramid and the arms of the cross touching both sides of the pyramid just a little ways down from the top. The pyramid and the eye of horus. I saw many other things there but you get the point.
Do a study on Mother Theresa and you will be just as shocked as I was to find out what a fraud she was. I realize now that anyone the news proclaims as "amazing" is probably not a believer is Jesus who came in the flesh, was of God, died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead in bodily form.

I have bad news for you! The chances are very high that he is not a follower of Jesus who came in the flesh and was of God, died on the cross and rose again in bodily form. I encourage you to do a search on google. Type in "Billy Graham freemason". Be prepared to realize that the global elite has used him to dupe many. Take a look at his associations and where he sent his "new converts". Look at his brotherhood with Catholic doctrine and tell me if you still think he is a follower of the above mentioned Jesus. Do you really think that the main stream media would promote a real man of God? Search youtube and check out critical videos about him and listen to his own words. He believes Muslims will be saved and that people will be saved because they unconsciously know Christ. That is called christ-consciousness. If he is one of your camp then you follow the wrong Christ! Billy Graham is a fraud and a deceiver. I was once fooled and when I found the truth it made sick to my stomach and very angry. The truth has been out there for a long time but we have all been stripped of our ability to question and doudle check and analyze what these "great men of God" have to say as if they are Jesus Himself. Please invistigate and stop perpetuating the lie of Billy Graham. You will not be fooled again so easily after you see how his deception was accomplished. I am thankful to have my eyes opened.

Rick Warren disavows support for Prop. 8

Postby nickylouse on Wed Apr 08, 2009 11:41 am

Rick Warren disavows support for Prop. 8

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.

Monday night on CNN's Larry King Live, Pastor Rick Warren apologized for his support of Prop. 8, California's voter-approved marriage protection amendment, saying he has "never been and never will be" an "anti-gay or anti-gay marriage activist."

Story continues

While I don't entirely disagree with the message of purpose as we are called by God, I was disheartened to hear Paul Shepard borrow from the PDL in his sermon this morning concerning the meaning of Easter. He had it going good about mentioning the pagan roots, but then when he started to highlight his message he cited PDL along the lines of "It's not about me". Like I said, I know God's plan of salvation is not about me, but I was dismayed that Pastor Paul would recognize Mr. Warren.

Warren's appeal presents an opportunity for those who haven't been hit by the recession to step up and help, Ross said.
