The 3-Legged Stool

Posted by susanb99 on August 31, 2006

August 2006 — What is “The 3-Legged Stool”? Peter Drucker (1909-2005), a business management guru, came up with this idea as a means to bring all societal sectors into one manageable, controllable roof. Drucker believed that the only way to persuade the world to accept change is to engage all three sectors of society, working together to effect change. The three “legs” of the stool are:

a public sector of effective governments
a private sector of effective businesses
a social sector of effective community organizations [including faith-based organizations] The mission of the social sector is to change lives. It accomplishes this mission by addressing the needs of the spirit, the mind, and the body… (Leader To Leader Institute [Drucker Foundation]) (7th paragraph)

Rick Warren was mentored by Peter Drucker for several years and has been promoting the 3-legged stool concept with vigor. Now Warren is using the Stool Concept in conjunction with his P.E.A.C.E. Plan:

Plant churches (spiritual emptiness
Equip leaders (egocentric or corrupt leadership)
Assist the poor (poverty)
Care for the sick (disease)
Educate the next generation (illiteracy)

In an interview published in the July 30, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Rick Warren states that “spiritual emptiness” is the Number One problem in the world. I would assume he believes (if he believes the Bible) that “spiritual emptiness” is a lack of reconciliation to God through Jesus Christ, the lack of recognizing one’s depravity, repenting of one’s sins, turning away from worldly desires and pleasures, and putting all one’s trust in the One true God. Warren goes on to say that these problems are so big (the problems outlined in his PEACE Plan), that no one can solve them without the “3-legged stool” – the marrying of Government, Business, and Church.

Is that true? No, it is not. Warren has gone outside the Word of God, outside JESUS CHRIST, and in his own wisdom, has created a solution for the one most important thing, each person’s unique relationship with God. Instead of GOD doing GOD’s work, Warren is teaching governments, businesses, and churches to do WARREN’s work.

It is absolutely impossible for man’s wisdom to find a solution for the ills of this world, including egocentricity, poverty, disease, and illiteracy. Jesus said, “The poor you will always have with you.” Social ills can be relieved, but never eradicated. Did Jesus lie? No, He did not. Is Rick Warren lying? I don’t know if he is deliberately lying, but he does claim to be a preacher and pastor, so he should know WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS! Either he is ignoring God and His Word, or he doesn’t know God. Either way, God doesn’t have any part in what Warren is cooking up. And perpetuating spiritual bankruptcy is what Warren is all about.
