    See no evil
    hear no evil
    speak no evil
    Churches tainted with the purpose driven seeker friendly business model
    refuse to see heresies
    refuse to hear about heresies
    refuse to speak against heresies.
    I think the principle established in Leviticus 5:1 Now if a person sins, after he hears a public adjuration to testify, when he is a witness, whether he has seen or otherwise known, if he does not tell it, then he will bear his guilt.
    They will have to stand before Jesus in humiliation. Pastor, pastor why did you sin against me. Why did you allow wolves to attack me.
    In as much as you did to the least of these you have done it unto me.

    A preacher of the Gospel told me the answer to this Purpose Driven movement is to abandon it altogether and return to Biblical truth, Biblical, Living, Biblical preaching, and Biblical principles. The idea that these new “purpose-driven” methods will restore the Power of God in our midst is a red herring. Rick Warren might just as well say that if only instead of being a preacher of righteousness (2 Peter 2:5) Noah had done some simple market research and built a “purpose-driven ark” more than 8 people would have come aboard. When holy-living, Spirit-empowered preaching, loving unity, and faithfulness to truth doesn’t seem to bring results, turning to the new methods advocated by Warren will only spell disaster. There will be results-but all of the wrong kind. A generation ago A.W. Tozer wisely said “ one of the most popular current errors and the one out of which springs most of the noisy, blustering religious activity in evangelical circles, is the notion that as times change the church must change with them”. Faithfulness to Gods Word, as opposed to what evangelicalism calls success, will be the standard of reward at the judgement seat of Christ ( 1 Cor. 2:4-5) Obedience to the command of teach and preach, without trimming our sail to the wind of the world, is the most pressing need of the hour.
