"On the contrary, he was simply trying to warn people about a belief system that pulls people away from the message of the Cross." I don't know of anyone who was farther away from God after reading Rick's book. They might not be any closer, but I like I said, for all that I don't like about the purpose driven movement, at least it has the potetntial to bring people closer to God.

Warren Smith wasn't being mean when he wrote Deceived on Purpose. On the contrary, he was simply trying to warn people about a belief system that pulls people away from the message of the Cross. That's not mean - that's sacrificial love. No greater love has this than a man lay down his life for a friend. Warren Smith was willing to put aside his own interests and reach out in love to those who are being led astray. Check it out, "study to show thyself approved" and then decide what is right.

Neither am I. It is too much of a 20 step, self-help book than good spiritual doctrine. We (Christians) are too concerned trying to make God and Christianity palatable. We would rather read a book than love someone, how sad is that?
