Rick Warren Exposed By His Own Words

On May 23, 2005 Rick Warren, author of the bestselling book The Purpose Driven Life, was a guest speaker at The Pew Forum on Religion. Read the transcripts for Rick Warren's interview.

During this interview, Warren said "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."

What are the Five Fundamentals of the Christian Faith?

1. The Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2. The Virgin Birth.

3. The Blood Atonement.

4. The Bodily Resurrection.

5. The inerrancy of the scriptures.

Is this a legalistic, narrow view of Christianity or the building blocks upon which our faith is based? Few Christians will deny the deity of Jesus Christ, the virgin birth, His crucifixion for our sins, His resurrection, or the infallibility of the Word of God. So exactly which of these tenants does Mr. Warren disagree?

Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Mat 7:16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?

Mat 7:22 Many will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works?

Mat 7:23 And then I will say to them I never knew you! Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!
