So recently Rick Warren, one of apostianities star children, hosted a "presidential forum" at "his" church in California. During his opening remarks he said (speaking about both obama and mccain) :
I HAVE TO TELL YOU UP FRONT, BOTH THESE GUYS ARE MY FRIENDS.
Nice huh? How much more in bed with the world could these people be? What did Jesus say about friendship with the world?
Don't you know that friendship with the world means hostility with God? So whoever wants to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God.
Today's so called pastors look like the world, they organize like the world, they walk, and talk like the world, is it such a far stretch to say they ARE the world. Men like Warren have no part in the kingdom of our God, all they hope to gain is right here in this world. But our treasures are stored up in heaven. Could you ever in a million years imagine Jesus standing next to two roman politicians and calling them 'friends?' The friends of Jesus are those who do the will of the Father. The politicians of this world are all corrupt, how could they possibly be friends with our God? And if they are not his friends, why should they be ours? Think about it...grace and peace
