After watching a very impressive sounding interview with "Purpose Driven Life" author Pastor Rick Warren, im convinced that the reason he is speaking all over the place, and basically saying the same things as Barack Obama, is that these two are going to run together in 2008. Warren, a hero to some in the Evangelical movement, is, in fact, watering down the Gospel with his contant political involvement, a "compassionate" version of 1988 Pat Robertson. His trip to Syria was a sure sign of what a menace he is. Although his words make lots of sense, whats behind it is a distraction to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Christians are not supposed to be focused on the political, but on Christ. Obama, who claims to be Christian, is in fact a 2 year Senator with a very muddled spiritual background who is banking on his charisma to fuel his ambitions. He is reaching out to religious voters. And has worked with Warren to this end. Wherever Warren goes, Obama is mentioned. Obama speaks at Warrens Saddleback church, and they both talk basically the same, attractive message. While the message is attractive, their ambition, and use of false religion is very remindful of the warnings in scripture of the false prophets that will appear at the end times. So if you see an Obama-Warren ticket in 2008, dont be surprised, remember where you heard it first, and if you are Christian, run, do not walk, in the other direction.
