Final part of the 5-part series on the Rick Warren/Raymond Arroyo Interview
By Roger Oakland
Understand the Times, International
Some who have read the previous four parts to this series dealing with Rick Warren’s interview with Raymond Arroyo of EWTN may still be asking the question: Why would Understand The Times spend so much time and energy on this topic? What is wrong with “America’s Pastor” expressing his support for the Roman Catholic Church and many of their beliefs and practices?
The answer is simple. Bible-believing Christians are called to “contend for the faith”  . When a Christian leader publically makes statements or endorsements by saying or doing things that contradict the Bible, the leader needs to be addressed in a public manner so those who have been influenced can be put back on track.
While many professing Christians who embrace full blown ecumenical unity with Rome remain silent and see no harm with the direction Warren is headed, we are compelled to sound the alarm. In the previous four commentaries we have addressed several critical topics indicating Warren is headed down the road to Rome without hesitation. Some of these include:
Endorsement of Catholic saints and mystics and their methods
Endorsement and praise for Pope Benedict – who Warren calls “our Pope”
Unity with Catholics and other religions for the cause of “religious liberty”
The PEACE Plan and the “faith sector” working together with all faiths
Warren and his “spiritual director” and the connection with Jean Vanier
The New Evangelization delegation from Rome to Saddleback
Now, in this commentary we will address what I consider the most blatant endorsement of Roman Catholicism revealed in his entire interview with EWTN. It was so revealing that even Raymond Arroyo expressed surprise when he asked
Warren to comment on the following topic:
Tell me about your—the little breather you take in the day when you watch television. When we first met, you came up to me afterwards—I can’t believe you watch Chaplet of Divine Mercy. 
In response to Arroyo’s comment, Rick Warren expounded. Click here to continue reading, for footnote material, and to see all five parts of this series.
