Infanticide now being advocated.

Very disturbing article but nothing that hasn't been warned of by the Pro-Life community.

Quote from the article being referenced in this blog entry: "...the same reasons which justify abortion should also justify the killing of the potential person when it is at the stage of a newborn." That should make a normal person's blood run cold.

Rick Warren vs Islam controversy: Warren speaks out

Thankfully, Rick Warren has finally come out about the controversy earlier this week & has clearly established that he does not believe that the Christian God & Allah are the same god. However, I do agree with Chris Rosebrough that the confusion earlier in the week could have easily been cleared up by him coming out immediately after the report &, even better, taken the time to actually speak with the reporter & clarify any confusion he may have had.

Warren did not take the time to meet with the reporter prior to the article being written despite the reporter requesting it. So, Warren should not be surprised when someone of the secular world does not understand the words or intentions of the Christian world. This should be a lesson that when dealing with non-Christians, it is the responsibility of the Christian to make sure his message is being understood clearly and that he has clearly defined typical Christianese. Also, like Chris points out, it does seem Warren is understating what he refers to as a "Bible study" with Muslims.

Warren still has serious problems with his ecclesiology & his seeker-sensitive "messages." And, rather than promoting Warren, the SBC should be admonishing him & trying to counsel him to preach more Biblically-based rather than his typical self-help, seeker-sensitive "messages." All the same, I am very pleased that Warren has clearly stated his stance.

So, if you have been following the controversy, Chris does a great job in this podcast. The coverage of the Warren controversy is covered in the first 20-25 mins if you don't have time to listen to the entire 2 hr show.
