    Jan, give your friend a King James Bible and tell her to compare verses with The Message. Tell her to start with the Gospel of John. Pray she reads it word for word. Pray she understands that the Message is not the Bible.

    The Emergent Apostates would be a better name for Rick Warren and Brian Mclaren. The bible is not good enough to find truth for them. They both may attempt to explain the Rapture of the church after we are gone. Nothing new to see here. Read your bible. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Read bible TODAY!!

    I am appalled about the so called bible The Message. How can anyone think it’s ok to read and believe it. My friend attends BSF and that group has her so brainwashed in how she thinks it sickens me. She has changed so much. I attended BSF only for a short time and there were red flags everywhere. But since BSF used The Message my friend is now using it. I keep praying her eyes will be open. The last meeting I attended a woman shared a statement that I knew was not correct but no one said a word. Everyone’s comments are right I was told. How can that be? The group left me confused. So glad I quit

    The New Age states that Bible believers are cancer cells that need to be removed from the body of humanity. Rick Warren said something similar by branding people who will not go with the purpose driven program as resisters. The New Age calls them “laggards” and these resisters and laggards definitely are divisive and stand in the way of the wonderful utopia of the New Age being realized, and so must be removed.

    13 years ago! And today this garbage is prevalent in most Bible Schools, Seminaries, and denominations in one form or another. I suggest even worse than what it looked like in 2007 because the promoters have learned that ambiguity in the narrative from the pulpits can be very effective for the congregation who is no longer doing real Bible Study for themselves. And, if you try to speak to many of them, the only thing they sense is that you are threatening to ‘separate’ them from the fishbowl of coffee times and (so-called) fellowship.

    Sits on my reference shelf, what a pitiful read. Asked a church pastor why he’d mention a McLaren book and said he hadn’t noticed my point about it. I’m no longer in that fellowship, sad too, cause I like going to church.

    Acts 20:29-30
    “For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
    Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.”
    Also 2Peter 2
