Rick Warren's Pastors.com Misleading Pastors into Contemplative Prayer

Over 400,000 pastors and leaders have joined Rick Warren's online "ministry" at www.pastors.com. What exactly is he promoting and teaching these Christian pastors? And is your pastor one of them?

Note: In 2008, the pastors.com website was shut down and a new site replaced it. Thus, the links to pastors.com that Lighthouse Trails has posted for documentation have been removed. However, we have been able to provide cached files to many of these now broken links.
