Rick Warren's Comments are Troubling

Rick Warren seemed to be apologizing to Larry King Monday evening for supporting Proposition 8 in California. He said his supportive comments were only made at the last moment and in response to a question from someone who attends his church.

There is no social issue that is more defining for biblical Christians than that of marriage and life.

The Bible is incredibly clear on these two issues.

"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." Gen. 2:24

"Each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband." 1 Corth. 7:2

"Thou shalt not kill." Ex. 20:13

It seemed that Pastor Warren was trying to distance himself from the marriage issue.

I have had a great deal of respect for Rick Warren and his ministry, however his statements to Larry King are very troubling.

His statements were equally troubling to the other side because they are now accusing him of lying and trying to mislead people.

I have linked to Pam's House Blend. You can read his comments, their comments and see the video of his interview with King.

You can watch the conversation and decide for your self.

Martin Luther once famously said, "If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at the moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved."

I am personally disappointed.

God help us.
