Twitter Theology That Makes Me Sigh
This gem from Rick Warrern- unsurprisingly.
There’s so much wrong here. First, it isn’t liberal or conservative theology or even theology of any kind that sustains congregations, it is the Holy Spirit. Evidently Rick doesn’t know that. Nor does he know that theology of any kind can kill churches because, according to Scripture (read the first 3 chapters of Revelation, Richard) churches are in the ‘hand of Christ’. What kills churches is anthropocentric pseudo-theology because when man becomes the center the organization in question ceases to be the church and accordingly dies of its own weight. And finally, liberal theology (whatever that is) survives (whatever that means) due not to tenured academics (whoever they are and whoever they are supposed to be) but to liberal Christians. But Rick has to have some non-existent straw man to whip.
Rick Warren is just the worst thinker in any high profile pulpit in the country. He really is ‘America’s Pastor’- for he’s just like America: biblically illiterate and theologically uninformed.
