James White on Rick Warren – No Compromise Radio

There’s been a lot of discussion surrounding Rick Warren’s message at the 2010 Desiring God Conference.  A lot.  And I have to say that some of the criticisms leveled against Pastor Warren have been embarrassingly harsh and undignified.  The following from “Fighting for the Faith” is one such example: Link

The episode description says, “Rick Warren’s Lecture at the Desiring God Conference was a circus of Blatant Bible Twisting and Pelagianism. John Piper owes us an apology and must publicly rebuke Warren for his false teaching.”

Well, rather ironically, while the theology and “purpose-driven-mega-pragmatic-model” of Saddleback is denounced, it is done so in an equally, if not more, discreditable way. 

The podcast is shameful.  It really is.

Thankfully, there are more even-handed denunciations out there.  And one such example would be James White.  Here recently he was a guest on No Compromise Radio.  His criticisms are fair, thoughtful and honest.  Emotions are held in check.  Slander is avoided.

It is for this reason that I commend the podcast to you.

  1. Thanks for bringing this up. I have honestly avoided much of the vitriol, despite having attended DG and despite in general enjoying F4F & Chris Rosebrough.

    I’ll give this one a listen, though. Interestingly, both James White and Chris Rosebrough are speaking next weekend in Newberg, Oregon and my husband & I plan to go. Chris will be debating the existence of hell with Doug Pagitt.

    1. Thanks, Miriam. I’ll have to keep an eye out for the audio 🙂 And that’s awesome that you attended the DG conference. You know, I’ve always wanted to attend one of those. Maybe someday I’ll pack up the family and just simply go for it.
