Purpose Driven Church Weighed and Found Wanting

Purpose Driven Church Weighed and Found Wanting

2 Timothy 4:3-4
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.

2 Corinthians 6:14

Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?

Revelation 18:4

I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues;....

The Purpose Driven Church and anything resembling it has been weighed and found wanting. I have personally witnessed the parade of refugees coming out of these churches, outcast, shunned, rejected because they stood on the word of God and because they did not fit the new mold. Yet, what it still most unbelieving is the stupor most of the church remains in concerning this deception.

We have just witnessed something quite amazing. One of the largest evangelical organizations in the world, Calvary Chapel, has just stood up and rejected one of the most popular "Christian" programs ever. And yet we still have Christians looking on as if there is really not a problem, or they just look at you with this glazed eyed lost puppy look on their face. I can tell you that the publishers who put up the big bucks behind "Purpose Driven" to rake it all back in sure know there is a problem and they don't like it one bit.

As the trend is showing, Purpose Driven is driving down the dead end street called the "Social Gospel" and with that becoming all the more antichrist everyday as the following article so blatantly declares.

"Purpose Driven" at one point had some truth in it, but that truth became a lie when Rick Warren, Saddleback, and his Purpose Driven Ministries went from being Christo-centric to "Purpose-Driven Centered". As with all false teachings they start out as a truth but are then twisted and elevated out of there proper order and context to become the facade they are.

If you are a Christian that is still attending a "Purpose Driven" church I believe there is no longer any biblical excuse for you to remain there. You are now putting yourself at odds with the King of the Universe and putting yourself in great jeopardy. Judgment begins in the house of God and it is time to get out the way before Jesus starts the ultimate cleansing of the leaven. I plead with you now to get out of her and gather into the safety of the fellowship of the Saints!
