Perfect Life Can Be Found in Heart’s Desires

Posted by susanb99 on May 18, 2009

From Slice of Laodicea:

Thank you, Rick Warren, for providing the rotten root producing this rotten fruit. The article is from the Wausau Daily Herald. How’s this for a life’s philosophy? The columnist, Mary Duwe writes:

 

I began to redesign the view from a new point of view. My new slogan, dated 3-03-03 and inscribed in the back of the book “The Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren, became, “My perfect day starts gradually waking up in the morning, wherever I am, at any age, bounding out of bed because there is something waiting for me that I love to do, I believe in, I am good at doing; a purpose bigger than me. I can hardly wait to get out of bed to begin again today.”

(Bold emphasis mine.)

Well, think of all the Purpose-Driven guys out there, bounding out of bed, to do something they love, something they’re good at, serving a purpose bigger than themselves—members of the Taliban, for example, or the Mexican drug cartel that is currently turning the southern border of the United States into a war zone, North Korea’s Kim Jong iL or Fred Phelps as he prepares his latest “God Hates F-gs” assault on a grieving family at a funeral. They love what they do. They serve a purpose bigger than themselves (the devil), and they’re really, really good at it. Come to think of it, Hitler would have qualified rather well for this new way of looking at life. Who would deny he was good at genocide, loved taking over countries and enslaving his people?

The Purpose-Driven columnist says she learned things on her new life’s journey:

• Only your heart knows true desire.

• Only your heart sees life as a sacred experience.

• Only your heart can identify your sacred moments.

• Only your heart comprehends the conditions needed for perfect possibilities.

• Only your heart surrenders to the awesome wonders of impossible accomplishments.

Yes, just like the guys flying planes into the World Trade Center whose hearts were set on killing thousands of Americans and whose “sacred moment” came as they entered eternity supposedly to get great rewards from Allah for their efforts. The heart, Scripture tells us, is a dangerous guide for us to follow.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Jeremiah 17:9

Rick Warren has not bothered to inform his interfaith and secularist followers that only hearts that are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, can be given right desires by the Lord. He has informed millions that “finding a cause bigger than yourself” and “finding out what you’re good at” is enough to give you a fulfilled life. Rick Warren has misled so many by denying the true Gospel that calls us to follow Christ alone and His desires for our lives. Warren is a celebrity as a result. But some day before God, the souls of these misled people will be on his hands. We’ve done all we can to warn.
